Retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, ponders Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court case that decided the 2000 presidential election.
Looking back, O'Connor said, she isn't sure the high court should have ...
She sat in her Range Rover in the Hamptons waiting to enter a mansion where a $25,000 a plate Romney fundraiser was being held. She took the time to complain about the little people who, in her humble opinion, are simply too ignorant to understand “why Obama is hurting them.”
We’ve got the message. But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.
That’s a Romney voter for you – out of touch, well-to-do and cast in the mold of Marie Antoinette (yes, I know that Marie Antoinette got a bad rap on that “let them eat cake” myth, but you know what I’m saying.)
Joshua Green nails it with the following observation on Romney and his wealth.
…every time Romney draws attention to the unseemly aspects of his wealth (or when his supporters do, like the Hamptons crowd), he undercuts that fundraising advantage and hurts his candidacy. He does this a lot: bragging about his multiple Cadillacs, proposing a $10,000 bet during a GOP debate, boasting of his friendship with NFL owners.
Romney’s problem is that while he was very good at getting rich, he isn’t any good at being rich. In fact, he’s downright terrible at it.
Yep. Ri¢hie Ri¢h handled his wealth so much better.
