Screaming yam in a wig Michele Bachmann says that Barack Obama is “too wealthy” to relate to the “common man”—despite the fact that Republican candidate Mitt Romney is worth hundreds of millions of dollars more than the president.
“President Obama is extremely wealthy,” Bachmann said when USA Today asked how someone with “vast wealth” could connect to the American public. “He and his wife have been wealthy for a number of years, and so I think that’s really the issue. President Obama is wealthy–what does he understand about the common man right now?”
Sooo…I guess the problem here is that Barack Obama made his money honestly by producing new things (it’s from book sales, mostly)—instead of by screwing people over like a weaselly big-business shithead. He’s the wrong kind of rich for Republicans, because poor people don’t lose their jobs when people write books.
