Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday said Americans should “vote for the other guy” if they couldn’t related to him because of his enormous wealth.
The former Bain Capital CEO on Friday noted that his wife drove two Cadillacs. It was just one of a number of gaffes that may make it hard for average Americans to relate to the candidate, who has a net worth of about $250 million.
Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday ask Romney if he understood if he understood why “some voters would be put off by those things.”
“You know, I can’t be perfect,” Romney replied. “I just am who I am. And I can tell you this, which is with regards to the cars we have, that’s something that was talked about last September. People asked us what vehicles we own, and we have a car that we have in California. We have a car that we have back in Boston where our other home is.”
“So, that’s just the way it is,” he added. “If people think there is something wrong with being successful in America then they better vote for the other guy because I’ve been extraordinarily successful. And I want to use that success and that know-how to help the American people.”
