It’s interesting that while the GOP narrative falsely accuses the President of inciting class warfare, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are actually engaging in class warfare in their battle for blue collar Michigan.
Santorum is trying to appeal to voters with a two-pronged approach that is somewhat contradictory. The first, and obvious, prong is that Mitt has been so rich and privileged his whole life that he doesn’t understand the problems of average working people. The second prong is that Mitt somehow has adopted the views of Occupy Wall Street because his tax plan calls for eliminating certain taxes on those making $200,000 or less, without extending those benefits to richer Americans.
So Santorum is both waging class warfare against Mitt and accusing Mitt of waging it in a way unbecoming to a Republican.
