Hypocrite Romney Is Just As Elitist As Obama
Attempt to appear as “man of the people” falls flat
Sept 27, 2011
The corporate media’s declared GOP front runner Mitt Romney has been attempting to win over voters recently by painting himself up as a “man of the people”, arguing that Obama’s Ivy League education and elitism serves as a distinct disconnect.
However, the suggestion that Romney somehow represents the antithesis of such elitism or any kind of shift away from the status quo in Washington, crumbles with a cursory peek into his own background.
In several recent campaign speeches, Romney has, rather hilariously, targeted Obama’s foreign policy in such terms.
In a speech last month to Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention in San Antonio, Romney said of the idea that if the United States recedes, its enemies will reciprocate, “That may be what they think in that Harvard faculty lounge…but it’s not what they know on the battlefield!”
Ignoring the ludicrous idea that Romney knows anything about being on a battlefield, his Harvard comments are meaningless given that he himself graduated from Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School with, count them, two degrees. Romney received a JD and an MBA in 1975, graduating in the top 5% of his class.
In addition, one of Romney’s chief foreign policy advisers is former Bush aide Meghan O’Sullivan, a Harvard international relations professor – who could be more familiar with the inside of the dreaded Harvard faculty lounge?
