The man has found a new word: Envy. Questions about corporations manipulating government in order enrich themselves are the result of envy. Questions about corporate welfare (e.g. oil subsidies while criticizing govt support of solar R & D and the electric vehicle) are the result of envy. Questions about closing tax loopholes for corporations and the 1% are the result of envy.
Oh yes, and Romney is also pulling the “class warfare” card. I wonder how people felt after Bain Capital restructured and reorganized their companies. You know, the ones who lost their jobs while the Bain “suits” walk away with millions in fees (you’ve seen the photo of Romney and his Bain buddies as happy as clams with the bills sticking out all over). I’ll bet that those ‘restructured’ folks felt like they were casualties of some class warfare.
But, what else would we expect from someone who claims Bain Capital was a job creator? It’s all about envy.
Just in case you have missed this one:
“I think it’s about envy,” Romney replied. “I think it’s about class warfare. I think when you have a president encouraging the idea of dividing America based on 99 percent vs. 1 percent, and those people who’ve been most successful will be in the 1 percent, you’ve opened up a whole new wave of approach in this country which is entirely inconsistent with the concept of one nation under God.”
Lauer asked, “Are there no fair questions about the distribution of wealth without it being seen as envy, though?”
“You know I think it’s fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms,” Romney said. “But the president has made this part of his campaign rally. Everywhere he goes we hear him talking about millionaires and billionaires and executives and Wall Street. It’s a very envy-oriented, attack-oriented approach.”
