Mittens was at a fundraiser today for $25,000 a person (that included a buffet lunch) at Ron Perelman’s estate in East Hampton (before his fundraiser at David Koch’s in Southampton for $75,000 a couple). Attendees were interviewed as they waited to go through security at Perelman’s place, “The Creeks.”
From “Donors arrive at Hamptons fundraisers with advice for Mitt Romney,” Maeve Reston, L. A. Times:
“A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. ‘I don’t think the common person is getting it,‘ she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. ‘Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.’
“‘We’ve got the message,’ she added. ‘But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who’s got the right to vote — they don’t understand what’s going on. I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.'” Emphasis added.
These people have the right to vote. Can you imagine?
I think the “common person” is getting it just fine. Those of us who have never set foot in the Hamptons, let alone have beach permits there, know that if Ron Perelman and the Koch Brothers are for Mitt, we should be against him.
