A slightly edited version of the Marie Antoinette quote making the rounds today:
A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney Obama 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 with “Obama 08” and “Wage Peace” bumper stickers. “Nobody understands why Obama Romney
is hurtingwill hurt them.
“We’ve got the message,” she added. “But my college kid cousin who voted for Nader, the baby sitters Medicare scooter people, the nails ladies the working poor — 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.”
