You got to give them credit. They aren't hypocritical about it. When Newt was asked about Occupy Wall Street his advice to them was, "Get a job. But first take a shower."
Romney last week on being questioned by a protester about income inequality told the guy that he is trying to divide America and it won't work as "American is right and you are wrong."
There is not even a pretense about speaking to the nonrich American. It's blatant, "I'm rich and you aren't and I count and you don't." You would think it's a risky strategy.
Let me add that I think Newt's victory last night is a great thing. I hope he wins Florida. For me if your a Democrat the wet dream match up is Obama vs Newt. The Republican establishment is now officially apoplectic and rightfully so.
They are so screwed. They need Romney to win this in the worst way. Not that Romney isn't beatable. He certainly has a big glass jaw. His only answer is to say that it's not fair to hit it.
I will say this-Newt at least gives a half decent speech. Romney just has this disconnect where he can't even hypothetically imagine what it's like to be a nonrich American, someone who wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth and has never had to worry about money.
His congenital inability of even the most basic show of empathy makes him a good candidate to run against too.
If I were running against him my first attack ad would be of that exchange where he tells a distressed American that "you are tyring to divide people, America is right and you are wrong."
I'd also for some levity have that weird scene of him at the truck stop where he pretended the waitress grabbed his ass.
If running against Newt the first scene is him telling the dirty hippies to get a job but take a shower first. The second is the video of Marianne Gingrich-maybe a quick voice over and video of Newt's sanctimonious witch hunt against Clinton in the 90s. Just when he was demanding Clinton's impeachment he was telling Marianne that one woman is never enough for him and that Callista makes no demands against him.
The tea party doesn't like the media's questions? My first question to him would be how many times has he cheated on Callista-we know she lets him do it.
