Romney thinks very little of $375,000. Shrugs off his speaker fee earnings as "not very much."
Holy crap! Did you read just how out of touch Mitt Romney is with ordinary Americans? The guy truly doesn't have a clue what middle and working classes are going through. Money is just an afterthought to this top .2 percent wage earner. Truly, he doesn't have a clue.
The New York Times reported Romney earned a whopping $374,327.62 in speakers’ fees from February of 2010 to February of 2011, at an average of $41,592 per speech. But that's no big deal to Romney.
“I get speakers’ fees from time to time, but not very much," said Romey.

$375k is just an annoyance to Romney, probably the richest man to make serious run for the top office for in America. Are you prepared to trust your future and your children's future to a guy who is so far out of touch with the values of 99% of Americans? I pay 25% of my income to Uncle Sam. Romney only pays 15% of what he earns, and he wants to pay much less.
You can wrap this Romney pig in denim, but that doesn't make him a working class pig.
