Mittens: I'm Middle Class Like YOU

CBS News reports on a comment Mitt Romney made to a Miami audience.
At a town hall meeting here, the millionaire GOP presidential contender told his audience that he favors a tax policy that will help "those who have been hurt by the Obama economy." "And that's the middle class," Romney continued. "It's not those in the low end; it's certainly not those in the very high end. It's for the great middle class - the 80 to 90 percent of us in this country." A look at Romney's personal financial disclosure form, however, reveals he's in the bracket that President Obama is targeting with his proposed "Buffett rule" to tax millionaires. An analysis of Romney's 28-page accounting of his wealth by the Boston Globe earlier this year put the former Massachusetts governor's net worth at between $190 million and $250 million.
He's also "unemployed"! Get that man a six-pack.
