Romney gets it right!

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!

    Wouldn’t it just be easier to use the dimensions of your flat screen tv to determine your class position?

    0-20 lower , 20- 40 middle, 40 – ? upper. This country was built on the notion of social mobility and so it should remain.

    It is why people are against the death tax. You should have the freedom to pass your 80 inch screen on to your heirs.
