"I think it's about envy. I think it's about class warfare," Romney said. "I think when you have a president encouraging the idea of dividing America based on 99 percent versus one percent... you've opened up a whole new wave of approach...

Oh, dear. He doesn't get it, does he?

Someone who doesn't get it really shouldn't be President.

1% vs 99%, no different from haves vs havenots. I don't envy the wealthy, I just wart enough to survive on.

I think most of us will agree that a person's income is irrelevant, but what he or she stands for is more than relevant.

Yes, some of the rhetoric and activism is driven by envy. However, this is not the issue when 47 million people are on foodstamps and so many people have lost their homes because of what the banks were doing.
the envious people are a problem and it is true that the negative people tend to grab power if any social change is successful. It's up to people to develop awareness of this and not to let them. People need to value integrity, intelligence and commitment to the welfare of all when choosing their leaders.
At t he present moment, those criteria would exclude Romney.

What William said!

I could care less how much someone makes or has so long as everyone else can survive and be content. That isn't happening right now and hasn't been for a while. I do care when an obscenely rich POS lords it over everyone else and thumbs his nose at the least of society and hides the major bulk of his wealth OVERSEAS and does not give back to the country who allowed him to become so obscenely rich in the first place. Rmoney fits that catagory in spades.

Envy? B.S! How about survival mode?

This shows how out of touch Mittens is as if his Casual racism tour of Europe didn't demonstrate it enough. I would imagine that envy is one of the few human emotions he has had any experience with, but then that is because he has such good hair.

Really Mitt? Since when wasn't the GOP not the party of the big corporations. It originated in 1854 from the Whig Party and it was the party of the robber barons and the railroad men. Abe Lincoln was not the country bumpkin portrayed. He was a high priced hatchet lawyer for the Big Railroads.
Unfortunately the Dems have strayed so far to the left of their center as to be unrecognizeable. They used to stand for small, efficient government.

The 1% use the class warfare cop out anytime they're in danger of paying their fair share or to trivialize the concerns of the people they look down on with scorn and contempt (namely we the 99%). The fact that Mittens said what he did only cements his status as an out of touch, holier than thou elitist. Trust me, I have no desire to emulate the 1% and their bad habits and snobby attitudes, I just want to know that I'll have food to eat and a roof over my head at the beginning of each month.

He is as out of touch as the King and Queen of France just before that revolution. Thank goodness he won't become King.
