Mitt Romney, frontrunner for the Republican nomination, announced he wasn't too worried about poor people. Maybe it would be fun to see Romney debate Joe Biden, just because nobody would know what to expect from either of them.
"I'm not concerned about the very poor," is sure to dog Romney throughout the campaign. But as he continues to explain what he meant, I hope he takes the opportunity to think about the "very poor." And I hope he is concerned. We all should be.
Yup, not a typo. Romney made those remarks in an interview with Soledad O'Brien Wednesday morning. After all, he said, "We have a very ample safety net and we can talk about whether it needs to be strengthened or whether there are holes in it."
