John Boehner Thinks You're a Loser

Here's another post I made on Facebook.  Frankly, I don't understand why people didn't make a bigger deal of this.  House Speaker Boehner was asked if Romney's wealth would be a problem for him in November, and he said that it was actually a positive because voters wouldn't vote for a loser who wasn't wealthy.  Seriously.  Here's his response:
BOEHNER: No. The American people don’t want to vote for a loser. They don’t want to vote for someone that hasn’t been successful. I think Mitt Romney has an opportunity to show the American people that they, too, can succeed.
WTF? Did John Boehner just refer to all non-rich people as losers?? I can't imagine any other interpretation. 

Seriously, he said that the American people don't want to vote for a loser who hasn't been successful, and then says that Romney can show us that we can be successful, which can only mean that he doesn't think we're successful and are therefore losers.

Seriously, what the hell is the matter with these bozos that they'd say this stuff out loud. Sure, it's what Republicans have believed for decades, but they're supposed to keep it to themselves. It's like they're not even trying anymore.
