Romney Says GOP’s Not ‘Party of the Rich,’ But ‘of Those Who Want to Be Rich’

At a fundraiser at a country club in Mississippi this evening that was expected to raise a record-breaking $1.7 million, Mitt Romney defended the Republican Party against its reputation as the “party of the rich” explaining that really, it is a party focused on helping the poor.

“We’re accused, by the way — in our party — of being the party of the rich,” Romney said. “And it’s an awful moniker, because that’s just not true. We’re the party of people who want to get rich. And we’re also the party of people who want to care to help people from getting poor. We want to help the poor.

“We also want to make sure people don’t have to become poor,” Romney said. “And we know what it takes to keep people from becoming poor.”


Wannabes. The GOP is the party of wannabes?

I can’t even think of the appropriate words to address Romney’s claims about the poor.
