    Romney completely unaware of what waiters and waitresses earn, calls them “middle class”

CBS News: “Addressing 300 contributors at a Jackson, Miss., fundraiser who paid $2,500, $10,000 or $50,000 to hear him speak, Romney acknowledged that the people in the room were well-off compared to many Americans. It was the middle class that had been let down by Obama, Romney said, and he pointed to the wait staff serving finger foods as an example:
“It’s tough being middle class in America right now… The waiters and waitresses that come in and out of this room and offer us refreshments, they’re not having a good year. The people of the middle class of America are really struggling. And they’re struggling I think in a way because they’re surprised because when they voted for Barack Obama…he promised them that things were going to get a heck a lot of better. He promised hope and change and they’re still waiting.”
***
We really are all the same to Mitt Romney. We’re the ones who serve him and his rich family and friends in thousands of ways daily, we’re the ones who sign the back of a paycheck, we’re the ones who scurry around doing our “jobs.” To Romney it doesn’t matter if a few bucks more or less per hour could change someones entire life for better or worse — all he sees are blobs of meat moving through space, serving finger food, while he collects millions at luncheons to spend on political attack ads.
There are only two classes in Mitt Romney’s world: those who attend his fund-raising lunches and everyone else (the middle class).
