That seems to be the burning question on the minds of some rich people
Over the weekend, Mitt Romney held a fundraiser in the Hamptons for a whole bunch of rich folks and a reporter started chatting with those waiting to get in.
As protesters assembled on a beach in advance of Mitt Romney’s evening event at the home of conservative billionaire David Koch, the candidate slipped to East Hampton for his first of three fundraisers on this tony stretch of Long Island.
The line of Range Rovers, BMWs, Porsche roadsters and one gleaming cherry red Ferrari began queuing outside of Revlon Chairman Ronald Perelman’s estate off Montauk Highway long before Romney arrived, as campaign aides and staffers in white polo shirts emblazoned with the logo of Perelman’s property — the Creeks — checked off names under tight security.
A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. “I don’t think the common person is getting it,” she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.
“We’ve got the message,” she added. “But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.”
Part of the problem is that poor people are too stupid to understand that rich people have to cope with major difficulties.
For example, the line of expensive cars waiting to get in under tight security was so long that “A woman in a blue chiffon dress poked her head out of a black Range Rover here on Sunday afternoon and yelled to an aide to Mitt Romney, “Is there a V.I.P. entrance. We are V.I.P.”” Alas, there was none. But do you think that the poors will understand how badly your chiffon dress will suffer from sitting for an extended time in even an air-conditioned luxury car? Ha, fat chance! They are probably too stupid and ignorant to know what chiffon is.
That tells you what the problem is right there. They are letting in a much lower class of billionaires these days and so no one knows who the real VIPs are. Before you know it, even Donald Trump will be allowed in and there goes the neighborhood.
