  •  On reflection, I think Rmoney meant (0+ / 0-)

    that 100K was not what he's using as a cutoff.   He didn't actually say, "No, George, I don't think $100K is middle-income."  The "no" could well mean: no, the upper cutoff on my definition is not $100K, it's $200-250K.

    He word-saladed it pretty badly, to be sure.

      And as I said to coffeetalk above, I doubt Romney even knows what he meant.  What is clear, I think, is that he isn't demonstrating any real knowledge of how 98% of Americans live because if he did, he might have been able to demonstrate that in his answer.
