A Clarification from Mitt Romney
About Poor People
Dear American People:
Yesterday, comments I made about poor people made me look terrible. This always seems to happen when I say what I really believe.
The fact is, I do care about poor people. That’s because I’m poor myself, when you compare me to Mark Zuckerberg.
According to most projections, Facebook’s IPO should net Mr. Zuckerberg a personal fortune of $28 billion. I couldn’t make a pile of dough-re-mi like that even if I fired people twenty-four hours a day.
Now, let’s take a look at Mitt Romney’s net worth: a measly $200 million. Now do you see why I consider myself poor? Compared to Mark Zuckerberg, Mitt Romney is practically living in a cardboard box.
Now, I’m not going to sit here and envy a rich person like Mark Zuckerberg. That’s exactly what President Obama wants poor people like me to do. Mark Zuckerberg made his money fair and square, by creating useful products like imaginary sheep and angry birds. Say what you will about Facebook, it has totally revolutionized the way we waste our lives.
The fact is, if you’re poor in America, you should do what Mark Zuckerberg did: create a social network. I’ve just started my own, called TwoFaceBook. With TwoFaceBook, your profile doesn’t stay the same for more than two seconds.
In closing, there’s one more reason I don’t worry about poor people. They have Groupons.
Vote for me,
Now that unscrupulous tactic is coming back to bite them in their perfidious arses.
We can now count on the Democrats using the Rmoney campaign's own technique--showing a Rmoney video out of context [all's fair, y'know]--and hearing the multi-multi-millionaire GOP guy with several homes, a 14% tax rate, and off-shore bank accounts who wants to be president say:
That'll go over well with every working class American--the 99 percenters--and people doing even worse than they are.
You're off to a great start, Mitt. BTW, Marie Antointte called, she wants her cake back.
