The way to grow the middle class for Romney: up the income to include the one percent

(Via Alternet)
Another day, another out-of-touch statement from Mitt Romney. Speaking today on ABC’s Good Morning America program, Romney said the typical middle-income household in America earned a quarter of a million dollars a year. Wouldn’t it be nice if, for once, we all lived in Romney’s America?
The actual figure is one-fifth of his estimate, the Associated Press reported this week relying on U.S. Census data. The federal agency found median household income—or the midpoint for the nation—is just over $50,000. Back to paying the bills…
I don't know how you feel about this idiot's mental abilities, but he continually demonstrates just how out of touch he is with the realities of our country and our world. This guy makes Dubya look like a freakin' genius.

I don't think Romney has any empathy or awareness of the millions of people who aren't as rich as he is. And underlying it all is a streak of aristocratic cruelty of the Marie Antoinette "let them eat cake" variety that is really scary.

He deserves a good boot in the butt to send him back to wherever he calls home nowadays---i.e., wherever he gets the best tax break.
