Mitt’s Out-of-Touch Moments: ‘Not Concerned’ About the Poor Edition

Uh-oh: there he goes again. During an interview with CNN this morning, the GOP frontrunner 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. And so it takes its place as the latest addition to our rapidly-expanding video gallery of 'Mitt's Most Out-of-Touch Moments.'
