RUSH: Here’s Romney unveiling a new anti-poverty theme that he says he’s considering as he seriously considers a run for prexy.
ROMNEY: Fifty years ago Lyndon Baines Johnson declared the War on Poverty. His heart was in the right place, but his policies didn’t work. We haven’t won that war. As a matter of fact, under President Obama, the rich have gotten richer, income inequality has gotten worse, and there are more people in poverty in America than ever before. His policies have not worked. The only policies that will reach into the hearts of American people and pull people out of poverty and break the cycle of poverty are Republican principals, conservative principals. They include family formation, education and good jobs, and we’re gonna bring them to the American people and finally end the scourge of poverty in this great land.
RUSH: Yeah, man. And, by the way, the press is already destroying Romney over that. They’re already having a field day with Romney’s talk about anti-poverty programs. See, he doesn’t really mean it, he’s just talking. How could he? He doesn’t know what poverty is, he’s a rich guy. The fact that he earned his money means he has nothing in common with the people he’s talking about, has no idea, ’cause he’s earned his and that’s not what we’re talking about. There’s no way to earn that kind of money anymore, ’cause America is over. the only way people are gonna have anything is through the redistribution of wealth, and Romney doesn’t understand that. That’s what they’re saying.
You like that “family formation” line, Mr. Snerdley? (interruption) Family formation, you’re against family formation? You must be against capital formation, too. You must be flying in formation. You must be against slot right 63 hook and go formation. (interruption) Yeah. Typical negative everything in there. Family formation, who could oppose that? Who the hell knows what it is? Family formation.
RUSH: Okay, folks, I’m gonna go out and get a lecture now. Family formation in the private sector. You don’t want to miss this one. He-he-he. All right, have a great day. Withdrawal, there’s no football tonight, folks, that’s it for the most part. We’ll see you tomorrow.
