“Nothing short of twisted”By
All things old are new again. Like red-baiting from the Red Scare period a half century ago. On the campaign trail in South Carolina, Gov. Mitt Romney got snappish with a questioner who asked what he — a member of the 1% — would do as president for the 99%. The Romney campaign thinks he did a good job responding this way:
Steve Benen at Washington Monthly disagrees. Romney’s vision, Benen believes, is a “Dickensian nightmare” for American workers:
The country deserves to have a meaningful, substantive debate about a generation of policies that have rewarded wealth while making conditions harder for working people. There are real issues that reflect real-world challenges facing Americans: rising income inequality, poverty, an unjust tax system, and wealth that’s increasingly concentrated at the top.
For Mitt Romney, those who even consider this a legitimate area of debate prefer, in his mind, communism.
This is nothing short of twisted.
No argument there. You’re either with the GOP or you’re with the commies.
