Weekly Standard | Mitt Romney: “I’m not concerned about the very poor.”

Fresh off his big win in Florida Tuesday night, Mitt Romney made the most stunningly stupid remark of his campaign. 

“I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there,” Romney said in an interview with CNN’s Soledad O’Brien this morning. “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 the America, the 90 percent, 95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling.”

“There are lots of very poor Americans who are struggling who would say, ‘That sounds odd,'” O’Brien replied.
