Does Mitt Romney Think Red States Are Culturally Inferior?

"SNIP...............................

Last week, at the tail end of his world tour of epic fail, Willard claimed that Israel's culture is superior to the Palestinians' because of their higher per capita GDP.

"As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000 dollars, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality."

"Culture makes all the difference,” Romney said. “And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things.” Among them, he cited “the hand of providence.”


Let's apply Willard's analysis to the United States.

1. Well, that all depends on who Willard is talking to and if he's being recorded.

4. You'd get nuance.

Culture. And a few other things.

Of course, there are a lot who would say that, well, yes, red states are retrograde and economically behind because they're culturally inferior. They vote red and must be stupid or at least vote against their interests.
