But I am not chasing the Big R tonight. Tonight I have a bigger fish to fry. Being poor in A-merry-ca is a b#*&^. I don't care if you are black, white, brown, or yellow. It's just not cool to be "very poor" here in the land of the [some are] free.
Everybody beats up on poor folks. I guess it's because they don't have any influence on K Street, and they don't have money to give to political campaigns.
If you are poor and you heard Flipper this morning on CNN you must have felt really bad, because you know now that if he becomes president of these divided states of A-merry-ca, he will not care about you.
"After less than 24 hours after a big win in Florida, Mitt Romney stated he isn't concerned "about the very poor" because “we have a safety net there.” Instead of focusing on the highest poverty levels, Romney intends on helping middle class Americans find jobs.
"If it needs repair, I'll fix it. I'm not concerned about the very rich. They're doing just fine. I'm concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling."Flipper, if you think that "middle-income Americans" are "really struggling", just WTF do you think that poor people are going through? Do you really believe that people want to depend on a f*&^%$# safety net? Or do you think that they want to participate in the A-merry-can dream and try to get where you are someday by working their asses off? No one wants to depend on a safety net. No one, except of course, the fictional welfare Queen who exists in the minds of [right] wingnuts like you, and Ronald Reagan.
"We have a very ample safety net and we can talk about whether it needs to be strengthened or whether there are holes in it. But we have food stamps, we have Medicaid, we have housing vouchers, we have programs to help the poor," Romney said. "But the middle-income Americans, they're the folks that are really struggling right now."
But then of course Flipper was in typical Flipper mode later in the day.
"Since his comments, Romney claimed his poor choice of words were taken out of context.
"No, no, no, no," Romney said. "You've got to take the whole sentence, all right, as opposed to saying, and then change it just a little bit, because then it sounds very different. I've said throughout the campaign my focus, my concern, my energy is gonna be devoted to helping middle income people, all right? We have a safety net for the poor in, and if there are holes in it, I will work to repair that. And if there are people that are falling through the cracks I want to fix that." [Source]Way to correct that flop there Flipper. I think that you managed to flip back on your feet for now.
