“What a home this is, what grounds these are, the pool, the golf course, you know if a Democrat were here he'd look around and say no one should live like this. Republicans come here and say everyone should live like this, all right.” (Mitt Romney, at fundraiser hosted by “Papa John” Schnatter, March 2012)
