It continues to beat all. From TPM:
Mitt Romney on CNN Wednesday morning said he is concerned about the heart of America. “I’m not concerned about the very poor, we have a safety net there,” Romney said. “If it needs repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich, they’re doing just fine. I’m concerned about the very heart of America, the 90, 95 percent of Americans who, right now, are struggling, and I’ll continue to take that message across the nation.”
When pressed on his statement, Romney admitted that, of course, it is hard to be poor. “We will hear from the Democrat party, the plight of the poor,” he added.
Repubs, even, are piling on (if secretly agreeing with the sentiment.) The super poor have it made, after all.
