Nominate Romney, Re-Elect Obama...Mitt Proves It Again Saying He "Not Concerned About The Poor"

Still believe Willard Romney is the "most electable" against Richard Milhous Obama? Two things should change your mind.

First - Turnout in yesterday's Florida primary was down from 2008, by around 200,000 voters. All that negative advertising and establishment pile on did not attract new voters. My point from last night. Romney is not inspiring and does not give people a reason to vote for him. Newt, as a second place winner, gave more of a reason to vote for him. Think of how many people will not be encouraged to vote in November, or will only vote for their House and Senate candidates.

Second - This morning, on CNN with Soledad O'Brien, Romney said the following (h/t FreeRepublic )

"I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs a repair , I'll fix it. I'm not concerned about the very rich.... I'm concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling." O'Brien asked him to clarify his remarks saying, "There are lots of very poor Americans who are struggling who would say, 'That sounds odd.'" Romney continues, "We will hear from the Democrat party, the plight of the poor.... You can focus on the very poor, that's not my focus.... The middle income Americans, they're the folks that are really struggling right now and they need someone that can help get this economy going for them."

Stupid answer! Mittens just handed Obama and the Dems a club with nail studs to clobber him with. Obama will chew Romney up and spit him out in five minutes during their first debate, on this and RomneyCare alone.

This "Romney is the most electable" argument is a fallacy. Be forewarned...believing this GOP establishment propaganda is the road to ensuring an easy, landslide victory for arguably the most corrupt, divisive and worst President in American history.
