Billionaire of the People

In the same story as the last post, Kerry highlights how he's a privileged man of the people while Bush exploits his privileges as entitlements:

In Wisconsin, Kerry also made a personality attack against the president, saying that he and his rival are both children of privilege, but Bush considers his comfortable position an entitlement.

Kerry said "he and I, we went to the same university, we're both very privileged." Both men attended Yale University.

The Democrat added that from his education "came a sense of fairness and responsibility" while Bush "thinks it's entitlement."

Kerry said America's middle classes had suffered from the huge tax cuts that Bush had presided over and which Democrats say mainly benefit the most wealthy.

"He doesn't care, he's out of touch," said Kerry.

Right… this is the same man who married a millionaire heiress, divorced her and then later married a billionaire heiress. Who has five homes collectively worth over $33 million. Who pedals around on a $5,000 bicycle. Who has a $30 million private Gulfstream jet at his disposal. Who is renowned in Massachusetts and elsewhere (even by Dave Barry) for his pompous "Do you know I am?" incidents. Yeah… real salt of the earth.
