      he also said 100K wasn't middle income. he can't have it both ways.

        always has it both ways. His answers are open to different interpretations that he or his campaign have to clarify later. It's a trait that makes him unfit to be President and annoying.

        The choice of our lifetime: Mitt Romney, It Takes A Pillage or President Barack Obama, Forward Together.

      •  Not to mention, his plan (0+ / 0-)
        Our major conclusion is that any revenue-neutral individual income tax change that incorporates the features Governor Romney has proposed would provide large tax cuts to high-income households, and increase the tax burdens on middle- and/or lower-income taxpayers

        It would seem common sense to think that Romney must have mispoke and doesn't really think $100,000 a year isn't middle income.  Problem is, it appears his actual proposals really would shift more of the burden on that income range.  So you have to think he maybe really is this clueless and out of touch.

    •  He did say, "and less", true. But... (0+ / 0-)

      ...why did he then say middle income was "$200k to $250k" before hastily adding the "and less"? And why didn't he define what "and less" means? And as noted elsewhere, he said that $100k was not middle income; does earning that meager amount then make one of the poor  people he's not worried about?

      The thing is, either he's disconnected from the everyday Joe, or he's a liar, or he's too dumb. Any one of those disqualifies him as POTUS, if you ask me.

      Cogito. Ergo sum ​​atheus.

    •  Saying "and less" doesn't make it better (1+ / 0-)

      In Rmoney's eyes, anyone making less that $250K is "middle income" seriously?

      The vaunted business man, who's good with numbers, thinks that "middle income" is defined by 97.7 % of the US population?
