Well, sort of. I was pleased to read this recent statement by the great white hope of the Republicans, my emphasis:
“I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich. They’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of America — the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling.”
As Charles M. Blow of the Times notes, he went on to say that his campaign was focused on “middle-income Americans” and that “we have a very ample safety net” for the poor.
Wow! Confirmation from the lead Republican candidate for my historical-sociological analysis of the American way of ‘middle-class!’ Maybe Romney is reading my blog!
