It's another Wednesday, so it's time for our dear Mittens to once more put his mouth where his money is, and he hasn't disappointed us yet. Here's what he told CNN's Soledad O'Brien:

"I'm not concerned about the very poor... We will hear from the Democrat party, the plight of the poor... You can focus on the very poor, that's not my focus..."

And there you have it straight from the horses's ass --er, mouth: "Fuck the poor". Or words to that effect. (I suppose he would have gone with "Let them eat cake", but that was already taken.) Of course, Mitt being Mitt, there's a Goofus for every Gallant, a Butthead for every Beavis, a Jekyll for every Hyde; here's what he told a group in Aiken, SC, last month:

"I'm concerned about our poor in this country. We have to make sure that the safety net for our poor is always strong and always able to help those that can't help themselves."

By this point, I'm sure you poor people are all very confused--as is, apparently, the GOP hair-apparent (Ed: misspelling intentional). So if  Mittens ties enough voters to the roof of his car is successful in convincing enough low-information (read: Fox-watching, Limbaugh-listening) voters that he'll be the absolutely best person in America to occupy the White House for the next four years, the poor will have to simply cross their fingers and hope like hell they get Aiken Mitt, not O'Brien Mitt.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
