    Not out in public.

    Mitt Romney on Wall Street and inequality - YouTube

    Why not? Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

    But this isnt the first time a potential GOP'er slipped up and told the truth...and was punished for it:
    ‘Quiet Rooms’ and Republican Class War -- Daily Intel

    snip

    So...Where are these quiet rooms? And why only discuss economic disparities there?

    The GOP shouldn't get more than 1% of the vote in 2012.

    I don't understand groups like Log Cabin Republicans or other similar groups. Why would gays support a political party that hates them? Likewise, why would any middle class member vote for a party that hates them and does anything they can to hurt them?

    Fox is an amazing propaganda machine, that's for sure.

    Interesting that you disagree that 'income inequality' should be discussed when making policy. 'Income inequality' should be discussed in quiet rooms - where rational people can make rational policy to deal with 'income inequality'.

    I am not surprised that the left insist on 'misunderstanding' what Romney said.

    What he means is that policy should be set in a sane environment, not by a mob.

    However, I don't know if Romney knows that as long as crooks on Wall Street get away with their crimes in broad daylight, the more likely there will eventually be mob justice.

    You do? Really? Only if you're a complete fucking moron. What I don't do is take one sentence out of context to make a different meaning to the original intention. That is not a game I play. Context is important.

    Rational, calm, honest debate by policy makers is what I got from his words. You, on the other hand, spin it into some 'secret debate'.

    I got you on record as a liar.

    That's what anyone with an IQ over room temperature would understand. Apparently, the OP has not reached double digits.

    Romney calls them "quiet rooms." At other times, they have been called by other people "smoke-filled rooms." Making decisions like this out of the public view might be a recipe for enlightened statesmanship except that the process is hopelessly corrupted by the selfish interest of the greedy. As it is, the time has come for an injection of democracy, which, with all its faults, remains what Churchill called it: the worst form of government, except for all others that have been tried.

    That's what restricted country clubs and men's clubs are for.
