|Cynical, endorsement buying, worker firing perpetual candidate Romney thinks like a one percenter as he tells his multigenerational plutocratic tale.
Rick Perry advisor Nelson Warfield slammed the anecdote as a symptom of Romney's wealthy upbringing.
"Mitt Romney had another $10,000 bet moment," he told TPM. "Suggesting only the wealthy can ran for office is something out of a Green Acres scenario of running for president."
Rodell Mollineau, president of Democratic Super PAC American Bridge, also condemned the comments.
"I'd say that Romney has forgotten what it's be part of the working class or middle class, but he never was," Mollineau said, adding his quote showed he "has no idea what average Americans are going through on a daily basis."
