    Talk of Wealth Gap Prods the G.O.P. to Refocus

    The wealth gap- Romney & J Bush on board- it is a problem. Thoughts are?
    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/22/bu...o-refocus.html

    Mitt Romney, vowing a campaign to “end the scourge of poverty” if he runs for president a third time, has backed raising the minimum wage over the wishes of congressional leaders.

    Similarly, Jeb Bush’s new “super PAC,” announced with the fanfare of a presidential declaration, proclaimed, “While the last eight years have been pretty good ones for top earners, they’ve been a lost decade for the rest of America.”

    They'll lose the primary to tea party nutters and hand the presidency to Hillary Clinton on a silver platter.

    Some of the money people are backing away from a third Romney run

    Former Romney Backers Unsure About a Third Campaign - NBC News

    Mary Kramer, who was the chairman of George W. Bush's Iowa campaign in 2000 and who was on Romney's leadership team in the Hawkeye State in 2012, said, "I think he's extremely qualified, but I will just wait and see."
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    ... Uh... I thought the wealth was supposed to trickle down from the top earners... Aren't top earners the job creators? The people who make sure we have enough to feed our families? Aren't they the people we should all be grateful to for you know... our economic existence?

    Good, Lord, "the scourge of poverty" sounds like another 47% comment with a dash of "gonna put you people back in chains" on top.

    Mitt needs to hire better message people. Too many poor people will hear that as "poor people are the scourge of society".

    Yeah. I haven't seen any of the conservative "thinkers / speakers" come out in favor of it, either. Even Coulter, who was a big Romney fan last time, says he shouldn't run.
