'MY JOB IS NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE' ~ Huffington Post front page headline today.

Seemingly, Mitt's only apprehension regarding the comments he made, was that they were not elegantly stated.

Mitt believes - "corporations are people" and actual people are not worthy of concern. Is there an elegant way to communicate these beliefs?

1. I would think ...

 

that even his supporters would realize that "inelegant" speech is a big deal when coming from the POTUS ... It can start wars.

2. That phrase should be turned into a

devastating ad:

Show Seniors living on SS and Medicare - Romney's voice: 'MY JOB IS NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE'

Wounded Veterans - 'MY JOB IS NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE'

Students who can't afford higher education - 'MY JOB IS NOT TO WORRY ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE'

etc.

3. Whoa... more than 100,000 comments on that. Wow!

He's toast. You've got to wonder, if he can screw up this bad as a candidate, what a massive disaster would he be as a president?

9. Joe Scarborough pointed this out this morning. His delivery was flawless, no pauses but very

articulate in his speechifying..
