Today in Mitt Romney Is Terrible

Here's a fun new ad from the American Bridge to the 21st Century PAC, succinctly detailing what a privileged, insulated, corporatey, plutocratic one-percenter Mitt Romney really is:

Text Onscreen: Mitt Romney's Thoughts on the Middle Class.

Cut to a clip of the infamous video of Romney at a private fundraiser: "The president starts off with a 48, 49—he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn't connect. So he'll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean, that's what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

Cut to a montage of clips of Mitt Romney at various events and in interviews saying:

1. "I'm not concerned about the very poor."

2. "Let Detroit go bankrupt."

3. "Corporations are people, my friend. ... Of course they are."

4. "Don't try to stop the foreclosure process; let it run its course and hit the bottom."

5. "One last thought, you guys: When I was a boy—when I was a boy, I used to think that becoming rich and becoming famous would make me happy. Boy, was I right! Thanks, you guys."
