Poor Mitt Romney and all his riches. At a pivotal period leading to the Republican primaries, Romney seems to have more trouble than even the candidates who have previously dropped out. His early insistence that, “corporations are people,” only preceded the media’s attack on the wealthy businessman. Possibly his most injurious comment was, “I like being able to fire people,” spoken at a public speech in New Hampshire during the economic downturn.
After the shock that Romney’s released tax returns had due to the blatantly low tax rate he has incurred, people could only gasp when they hear him declare,“I’m not concerned about the very poor,”. News programs have been criticized for intentionally cutting his full statement,
“I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs a repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich — they’re doing just fine,”
Despite the media’s misleading reports on the incident, it is also clear that Romney needs to pronounce his views in a more tasteful and understanding manner.
