DNC Hits Mitt Romney Over "I'm Not Concerned About The Very Poor" Comment

Well now... that didn't take very long:



The Hill:
The Democratic National Committee launched a new web ad Wednesday mocking Mitt Romney's comment that he is "not concerned about the very poor."

The former Massachusetts governor made the comment Wednesday morning as part of general comments about wanting to focus his economic priorities on the middle class.

"I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs a repair, I’ll fix it," Romney said in an interview with CNN. "I’m concerned about the very heart of America, the 90 to 95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling. I’ll continue to take that message across the nation."

While Romney maintained Wednesday that his comments were not incendiary within context, Democrats seized on the comments in the web ad.
Yesterday, I predicted that Romney's comments would be seized upon quickly by his political rivals -- I just wasn't sure if it would be the Democrats, or the Gingrich campaign that struck first.

Clearly the Dems have a better rapid response outfit.

...and this is just the beginning. If When Romney is the nominee, they will continue to hit him over and over and over again (ad nauseum) with this attack.
