This isn’t just a gaffe. Reasonable politicians of all political persuasions ought to be concerned about the very poor. Presidents must be. It is their job to be concerned about the very poor. It is their job to be concerned about everyone.
Mitt Romney should spend every waking moment trying to convince every single American that he cares about their needs. But he doesn’t care about their needs and he’s not ashamed to admit it.
If you’re not rich enough to fund a super PAC, Mitt Romney just isn’t interested.
What a stupid thing to say
