    On Morning Joe, Mitt Romney was asked about what he would do for the Republican poor and how his policies would help the Republican poor and he said he's not trying to target any particular segment of society.

    In other words, "You guys are on your own, don't look to me for help".

    Really good message.

    When asked about his "policies", there were the typical Republican repsonse:

    Cut taxes for the wealthy

    gut the EPA

    Open health care across state borders (so it can't be regulated)

    and variations on these three themes.

    Nothing about education, building American infrastructure, helping the middle class.

    So, this is it? The is the best Republicans have to offer? Am I missing something here? This fantasy that cutting taxes for billionaires will make jobs has gone on way too long. Do Republicans really believe America can compete with a failing infrastructure and no education? How would success look without those?

    LINK?

    Of course, not centering efforts on one segment of society, and instead, trying to help every segment of society, is a no-no for libtards.

    putz.

    So now Liberals have resorted to blatant lying. Actually nothing new there.

    Mitt Romney never said this. I saw the segment and he was saying he wants EVERYBODY to have a chance at the Amercian Dream. His policies will help ALL AMERCIANS, likewise its not aimed at any one group. If he aimed it at one group like Obama does that would be class warfare.

    Now carry on with more of your lies Liberal.

    I never got a job from a poor man. Have you?

    I hope my employer gets tax cuts because that means more benefits for me and my fellow workers. I just might be able to go out and buy that big screen TV I want!

    No doubt Dean will slink away from the thread now. Allah forbid he post a link to his nonsense.

    The truth is often inconvenient to the left.

    But cutting taxes for the wealthy and gutting the EPA really doesn't add up to centering efforts on one segment of society, does it? Unless you're a wealthy corporation.

    Tax cuts for the wealthy don't create jobs. DEMAND for products creates jobs.

    Do you really believe that a rich guy looks at his 1040 and says "Wow! I don't have to pay that extra 6%! I'll open a factory to celebrate!"

    He'll open that factory if there are people WITH MONEY IN THEIR HANDS wanting to buy what he's making.

    Put more money into more hands and watch our economy boom.

    I never bought anything I couldn't afford, have you? I hope I get a tax cut so I can afford to buy that big screen TV.
