This guy is doing performance art. It’s a variation on Andy Kaufman’s angry at the audience routine. (or is it real?). It’s hard to tell what’s real. Romney is supposed to be the data-driven candidate. Well, here’s Mitt interviewed by George Stephanopoulos via The Young Turks:
“Is $100,000 middle-income?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“No, middle-income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less,” Romney responded.
Romney doesn’t know where the center is. Here’s a chart on median income for 2009. Only 21% of the households have an income above $100,000 and that’s a $100,000 short of the middle class. Romney’s middle class must be really small. At $100,000 a year in household income, you are in the 94th percentile for household income.
It would be great to have an election where real issues were contested. Instead we’ve got a clown show by the Republicans. The only issue that they truly advocate s the poverty of choices we have as citizens.
