Rich Donors Aren’t Helping Romney In Some Cases

RICH DONORS DON’T HELP ROMNEY BY TALKING TO REPORTERS: “As protesters assembled on a beach in advance of Mitt Romney’s evening event at the home of conservative billionaire David Koch, the candidate slipped to East Hampton for his first of three fundraisers on this tony stretch of Long Island,” the Los Angeles Times’ Maeve Reston reports. “The line of Range Rovers, BMWs, Porsche roadsters and one gleaming cherry red Ferrari began queuing outside of Revlon Chairman Ronald Perelman’s estate… ‘I don’t think the common person is getting it,’ [a New York City donor who would not give her name] 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. 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.’ http://lat.ms/LY2M2V
