Time to Turn the Laugh Track On
Multimillionaire Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Thursday claimed he was a regular person who “lived in the real streets of America.”
During a CNN-sponsored debate in South Carolina, the former Massachusetts governor said that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s “involvement in Washington is a perfect example of why we need to send to Washington someone who has not lived in Washington, but someone who has lived in the real streets of America, working in the private sector, who’s led a business, who started a business, who helped lead the Olympics, who helped lead a state.”
Romney says he “lived in the real streets of America” but then he goes on to enumerate the things that put him in the 1%.
Way to go Mitt. You. Don’t. Get. It.
