Bad Timing for Super-Wealthy Mitt Romney

So the Republicans appear to be on their way to nominating Mitt Romney for president. Despite some of the drama in South Carolina, Romney is the guy. And all of this during a time when there are nationwide protests against the massive disparity between the wealthiest 1% and everyone else.

It's important to note, therefore, that Mitt Romney isn't just a member of the 1%...

Romney's wealth makes him one of the 3,140 wealthiest people in the country — that's the richest 0.001 percent of Americans.

That's right, the would-be Republican nominee is among the richest .001 percent.

Keep going, Republicans. You're doing great!

Check my math, but doesn't that make Romney the 1%'s 1%? No wonder "99%"ers like Gingrich are trying to use OWS rhetoric against him.
