Romney Says He’s Not Concerned About the Poor


“The remark about the poor immediately became catalogued in a growing list of awkward comments by Mr. Romney.”   —New York Times

His profile’s divine.
His shoes have a shine;
They’re almost as shined as his hair.
And voters ignore
That seeking Mitt’s core
Has failed because nothing is there.

So Mitt’s way ahead.
The pundits have said
That Newt might be almost kaput.
But Mitt still might lose
If he puts those shoes
Much more in his mouth with his foot.
