I missed posting this quote the first time around (January 2012), and felt it was even more relevant now since Mitt Romney has become the GOP’s presidential candidate and has even nominated another plutocrat to govern with him. Enjoy.
Asked for his opinion on the growing concern of Americans re income inequality, Mitt Romney says it’s all about envy:
“You know, I think it's about envy. I think it's about class warfare.”
Oh, there is certainly a class war going on, but it’s being waged by the 1% against the poor and the middle class. But I digress.
When Romney was asked if it’s ever okay to have a discussion about wealth inequality, Romney said it was fine to do so in “quiet rooms”:
“It's fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms and discussions about tax policy and the like.”
In other words, keep such matters from gaining wide attention or as Mitt might privately say, “We certainly don’t want the servant class to learn that they’re terribly taken advantage of in order to benefit us (the 1%), so STFU!”.
