From “Let Them Eat Crab Cake,” Maureen Dowd, NYT:
“He seemed to have bought into the warped canard that some conservatives inside and outside of Congress have pushed, that the president and Nancy Pelosi were nefariously hooking people on unemployment benefits so they’d get addicted and vote Democratic to keep the unemployment benefits flowing like crack.
“It’s literally rich: Willard, born on third base and acting self-made, whining to the rich about what a great deal in life the poor have.
“We thought Romney was secretly pragmatic, but turns out that he’s secretly cruel, a social Darwinist just like his running mate.
“You’d assume that it would be hard now for Romney to resume bashing President Obama for demonizing and pandering on class warfare, with lines like he’s been using on the trail: ‘he and his allies are pushing us all even further apart by dividing us into groups.’
“But, even as Mitt was spitefully demonizing and dividing in Boca, he remained cardboard-cutout un-self aware, musing: ‘The thing which I find most disappointing about this president is his attack of one America against another America.’ This is the absolute height of cluelessness.
