Prissy little twit Michelle Malkin exposed Republicans’ collective sentiments regarding working class Americans on Fox News Saturday when she said:
“The Romney types, of course, are the ones who sign the front of the paycheck, and the Obama types are the ones who have spent their entire lives signing the back of them.”
God she’s a precious little Catholic girl, isn’t she? When did Conservatives decide working for a living was no longer respectable? Does this shrew think it’s the 1% reading her party-line drivel every week, or does she figure her readers are so stupid her insults are over their heads?
I doubt Republicans were ready to go public with how they view their “working class” voters, which is, as News Corpse put it:
“The little people disgust them. They get in the way of their tax cuts and subsidies, while burdening them with selfish appeals for health care, education, safe workplaces, and a clean, sustainable environment.”
So they nominate Mitt Romney, a guy whose exposure to the working class consists of them serving him his meals and valeting his car; a guy who follows the Leona Helmsley theory of society: “There’s us, and then there are the little people.” Mitt believes, as New York Magazine reported:
“…gripes about income inequality reflect nothing but envy, and that such topics should only be discussed in “quiet rooms.” What Romney is saying is, maybe we can debate income inequality and the abuses of Wall Street, if you insist on it, but it’s nothing to get upset about.”
It is when Republicans start holding the rich up as heroes, and disparaging the working class backbone of the economy.
