Why Did Everybody Let This Go?

IMHO, the most infuriating quote of the evening:

KERRY: Now, for the people earning more than $200,000 a year, you're going to see a rollback to the level we were at with Bill Clinton, when people made a lot of money.

And looking around here, at this group here, I suspect there are only three people here who are going to be affected: the President, me, and, Charlie, I'm sorry, you too. [Source: Sacbee]

WTF? In other words, he's asking: Why are we even discussing this? I look around here, and I can plainly see that none of your homely asses makes anywhere near what I do. I'm clearly above all of you, yet I'm willing to humble myself and pay more taxes than you, so that I can put all of my socialist ideas into motion, gain the support of the world leaders, con them into my game, and eventually TAKE OVER THE WORLD! Now. Shut up your pathetic, penniless pie holes, and give me my damn vote. Morons.

That's what I heard, and, frankly I'm offended. I may be barely eking by in my middle-class world, but I do own a Subchapter S-Corp., which grosses over $200K a year...yet let it be known, friends that that - given taxes and overhead - by NO means, makes me wealthy. So I am in the same boat with 899,999 other small business owners whom our President is so desperately trying to protect.

As I said...infuriating. ...And big mistake. BIG. MISTAKE.

Update: I'm not alone, apparently. The guys on 640 WGST just slammed Kerry for the same quote.

Yeap...I still can't believe he said that, and I agree...BIG mistake.

I heard it, just couldn't believe he actually said it! He can look down his nose all he wants at me,,,in the end, his future depends on all us 'poor people'!

I was offended as well- any number of those audience members could have been fellow Sub-S Corp owners, making more than 200K 'on paper'. His comment clearly demonstrates his elitism and acerbity towards us 'regular folk'...

My mouth actually fell open when I read that. He's an asshat with no viable understanding of America and Americans. Maybe he should move to France.
