Mitt Romney said in a CNN interview that he was "not concerned about the very poor" because "we have a safety net to help [them]". His campaign, he said, was "focused on middle-income Americans".
I’m not concerned about the very poor.
‘Cause we have programs that take care of them,
Although these are the programs we deplore
And often speak up loudly to condemn.
But if the safety net is rent with holes,
Then I will fix them – but I must focus more
Upon the middle class, who’d go to polls
And vote for me, unlike the very poor.
Mid-income folks are in a lot of pain
But I’ll restore things like they were before
Obama and his socialistic reign –
I have no time to worry ‘bout the poor.
Republicans support free enterprise
And foster a salubrious rapport
With businessmen – our natural allies;
We don’t concern ourselves about the poor.
There’s lots of folks that said I made a gaffe,
But I must say it loud and clear once more
I’m working on the middle class’ behalf
I’ll let Obama care about the poor.
