Obama: Romney Doesn’t Think I’m Rich Enough To Be President

Or something.

President Obama today suggested that Mitt Romney doesn’t believe he is rich enough to be president, as he emphasized Romney’s wealth at different times throughout the speech.

“[Romney ads will say] I didn’t make a lot of money in the private sector and I don’t understand it,” Obama said in Ohio, or that “I’m in over my head  . . . that’s what the scary voice in the ads will say. That’s what Mr. Romney will say.”

Obama didn’t let his blue-collar audience forget that Romney is wealthy. “I don’t believe that giving someone like Mr. Romney another huge tax cut is worth ending the basic security we’ve always guaranteed [to the poor],” he said. The president argued that Romney’s tax cuts for the wealthy will require spending cuts and tax increases on the middle class due to pressure to reduce the deficit.
