During an interview with CNN on February 1st, Mitt Romney said – actually said – this: "I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich, they’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of the America, the 90 percent, 95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling." You can see what he's driving at, but oh boy. As out-of-touch, caricature-confirming lines go, this one's right up there with "I like firing people," "[$370,000 is] not very much money," and the $10,000 bet.
