While much focus has been on the disgusting bag of misogynistic gutter trash and right-wing shit known as Rush Limpballs, Mitt, Ann and the 5 Romney Boys have been illustrating their nonchalant, tone deaf, Out-of-Touch, 1%, snobbish ignorance.
Mitt Romney is still trying his, 'I'm a regular guy' routine which is so infuriating the Teahaddist conservatives.
In Michigan Romney tried to connect with the Americans he heartily wanted to be fired in his Magnum Opus 'Let Detroit Go Bankrupt'. Thinking that they way to connect to middle class and Michigan voters was to talk about American cars, Romney imagined the cheapest car brand he could think of and said, "I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually."
Ann Romney drives a couple of Cadillacs, that's really Salt of the Earth stuff!
However, Romney wasn't finished! In an effort to appeal to the Drive Fast Turn Left fans, Romney was asked by an AP reporter if he follows NASCAR. Mitt Out-of-Touch Romney responded, "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners."
Not to be outdone Ann Romney decided to reach out to poor and struggling Americans with her own personal story of hard times in the Republican Recession, "I don't even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing."
Now, Faux News was attempting to show the storng side of Ann Romney as she struggles with MS, a terrible burden and not something to ridicule say as Rush Limpballs did to Michael J. Fox and his illness. However, Ann is incredibly wealthy and according to her she "has horses in every port" to help her spiritually and physically deal with her illnesses.
But, she's also part of the Republican Plutocracy which is fighting with every fiber of their being to make sure Medicare, Medicaid and SSI disability insurance are taken away from the Millions of Americans who need it to help them deal with their medical issues.
As I wrote back in a blog post in August 2009, If you were Wealthy, You'd be Healthy, this is merely part of the Greedy One Percent which holds,
Hey poor people? I've got some bad news for you... It's your own fucking fault you're poor. And because you are poor when you get sick well too fucking bad.*- There is always the possibility of a Snowbilly Grifter Palin coup during the convention.
The Healthcare Reform debate is rooted in the idea the poor are that way due to their own failings, their lack of moral fiber. If god or nature wanted the poor to be wealthy and healthy they would be, but since they are not well then... It's Pre-Destination, Calvinism, Social Darwinism and Welfare Queens again. It's the Myth the Rich got that way due to their inherent merit... And why should the best and brightest, The Rich, pay for your pre-ordained immorality? Indeed forcing the Meritorious Rich to pay for the Poor is the height of evil as Michele Dump Bachmann stated "This is Slavery".
