It comes from Fox and nobody should be surprised.
It won’t help Mitt Romney win the nomination, because he’s having so much trouble explaining himself I’m not sure anything can at this point, but it does give you an idea of the demagoguing on Romney’s wealth.
It also is illustrative for why many Americans are sick of both political parties and their unhinged partisan warfare.
I wrote the headline first yesterday: How Many Democratic Millionaires Pay 10% to their Church or Charity? So, needless to say I knew this was coming.
No one can argue that the Swiss bank, Cayman account bingo slick Mitt is playing looks bad. That Newt Gingrich, a rich fat cat lobbyist and access peddler, is teeing off on it is as expected as the Democratic response.
Let’s just not pretend Democrats don’t play the same game.
Mitt Romney is simply the general election whipping boy on wealth in an era of Occupy.
But considering he’s one man among many, including Obama’s chief financial architects, this is quickly and predictably turning into an unseemly spectacle brimming with hubris and hypocrisy.
It’s just one reason the Occupy movement doesn’t want to identify with either Democrats or Republicans.
