Mitt Romney Rubs His Wealth In Our Faces Again At The Daytona 500

First there was the infamous $10,000 bet to Rick Perry in the Iowa debate. No biggie, we've all made ridiculous bets before but 10K to Romney is walking around money.

Then in an interview with Soledad O'Brien Mittens says "I’m not concerned about the very poor." Granted it was a sound byte taken out of context but that is just red meat for his opponents.

Next was this gaffe on Friday, while campaigning in Detroit, where he flaunts his support of the US auto industry by telling supporters, "I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually." Way to go Mitt, another softball to your detractors.

Now, just 2 days after the latest foot-in-mouth incident, Gov Flip-Flop again brags about his wealth at the rained out Daytona 500 when he responds to a reporter's question about whether he follows NASCAR with this gem "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners." As Homer Simpson would say, D'oh.

Memo to Mittens the economy sucks, people are broke, out of work and losing their homes. Most of us who are working live paycheck to paycheck and those that do have something to fall back on, are in the minority. Reminding us how rich you are goes to show just how much of an out of touch douche bag you are.

Being President may be a "bucket list" thing to you, like it is for Barry, but we need someone to turn things around and I don't think you are that someone.

  1. Interesting how far we have come.

    The people used to admire wealthy Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Taylor with their plantations.

    Today the brainless, mouth-breathing Sheeple scream if Romney buys too many American made cars.

    The nation is totally fucked.

  2. Romney's wealth doesn't bother me in the least, I admire anyone who makes an honest buck. However, with the shambles our economy is in and people struggling to get by, Mitt's constant reminders of his wealth isn't going to win over many voters.

    George Washington may have been one of the wealthiest men, if not the wealthiest, in the fledgling nation but he was also humble and did not flaunt it.
