For one of these donors, the big danger of 2012 is that people who aren’t as wealthy as her might still be able to have some input on this election. The L.A. Times’ Maeve Reston caught a gem of a quote from this attendee as she drove in.

“I don’t think the common person is getting it,” she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.

I just think if you’re lower income — one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how the systems work, they don’t understand the impact.
