Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential hopeful Willard Mittens Romney claimed on NBC’s Today Show that concerns about Wall Street, financial institutions and income inequality were the result of “envy.”
Mittens – who not surprisingly crushed his opponents in the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night — attacked the President for promulgating the “politics of envy.” Though his attack was mainly directed at the president, Willard’s “envy” remark came after Lauer asked about the concerns of “anyone who has questions about the distribution of wealth and power in this country.”
“I think it’s about envy. I think it’s about class warfare,” Romney said. “I think when you have a president encouraging the idea of dividing America based on 99 percent versus one percent… you’ve opened up a whole new wave of approach in this country which is entirely inconsistent with the concept of ‘one nation under God.’”
But wait, that’s not all, Mittens also mewed it wasn’t necessary to have a public debate about the inequality of wealth distribution in this country, and claimed the President’s focus on this issue was just “part of his campaign rally.”
“I think it’s fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms and discussions about tax policy and the like,” Romney said. “But the president has made this part of his campaign rally. Everywhere he goes we hear him talking about millionaires and billionaires and executives and Wall Street. It’s a very envy-oriented, attack-oriented approach and I think it’ll fail.”
Now the question is how long will it take for Mittens to scream that Lauer got him with a “gotcha question”? Probably not long; the real issue is that Willard’s shown once again that he’s a Rodney Rich Pig who can’t relate to anyone who’s not from his class.
