5. Sorry Mitt but that really is unrealistic


My parents were not rich like your parents Mitt. They were not able to provide me or my three siblings a stock portfolio. But they worked hard to get me a college education. And during college I worked two jobs.

I know about their finances and I can't recall a time they might have had a spare $20,000 to lend me. Hell, there was never even a time they had $20k in the bank.

Are you really that stupid and out of touch with people who are not worth $250 million? And you think we really want to elect someone who's view is so out of touch with the majority of US citizens who average somewhere around $40,000 a year in income? You obviously don't understand how most of us live and how many of us live paycheck to paycheck. So how can we possibly count on you to implement policies that have some empathy for us?

After all, you made many of your millions as a corporate raider buying companies and laying off we common people. It's on tape - you said you liked firing people.
