Former GOP Strategist On Romney: You Can’t Own Car Elevators And Run On Poverty


Mitt Romney is trying to reinvent himself for a possible 2016 run, this time, while in a seemingly campaign-type-mode, the wealthy Republican says he wants to help the poor.


“It’s a tragedy, a human tragedy, that the middle class in this country by and large doesn’t believe that the future will be better than the past.” the plutocrat said. We haven’t seen rising incomes over decades.”

“The rich have gotten richer, income inequality has gotten worse and there are more people in poverty than ever before under this president,” he added while possibly sipping champaign and nibbling on Iranian Beluga caviar.

As Alan Colmes notes, this isn’t flying, even in his own party.

While discussing the prospect of a third Mitt Romney run on “This Week”, former GOP strategist Matthew Dowd sounded less than thrilled at the idea.

“He ran one campaign in 2008, a different campaign in 2012,” Dowd said. “To me this campaign he’s developing, he should be talking about foreign policy…I think it’s very problematic for Mitt Romney, who has car elevators, to run a campaign on poverty.”

“You want to be authentic and genuine,” Dowd added. “That’s not to say wealthy people can’t talk about those issues. But it’s difficult.”


We’re not saying that you can’t be rich and care about others, but Mother Jones does still have his infamous 47% remarks on video. To add to that, Romney’s wealth makes him difficult to relate to.

Also, corporations are not people, my friend. I don’t care what the Supreme Court says.

Mitt Romney has the runs. If enough Republicans are behind him (and I urge them to do so), he’s pretty much ready to go for round three.

Democratic blogsters and blogstresses are chomping at the bit to beat up on him again.

Romney vetoed legislation that would have improved elevators for the disabled, but those car elevators are cool.

Nothing says helping the poor like, “Let Detroit go bankrupt.”
