Skip to comments.John Kerry can tell if you make more than $200k a year, just by LOOKING at you!

Kerry: "...And looking around here, at this group here, I suspect there are only three people here who are going to be affected: the president, me, and, Charlie, I'm sorry, you too."
Kerry speaking in last evening's debate about his plan to raise taxes on people making 200k+ annually. So now John Kerry is prejudging people by just looking at them to determine their income?!? He decided that the only people in the room that qualified as his new tax-hike victims were himself, Bush and Charlie Gibson! Wow, a big criticism many liberals have of Bush is his supposed "arrogance", there was simply nothing more arrogant and ignorant than that statement that Kerry made and it will probably haunt his campaign...
You're right. Is he that shallow that he would judge people's wealth by their clothes ? Or maybe he was looking at their hair and thinking "Hmmm, sure doesn't look like one of those $1000 haircuts I get."
Also something I've not heard someone mention - what if you make say $150,000 and expect a raise over the next few years?
"I can see that you all are Peeons"
When I heard that, I immediately thought about how he had pretty much offended everyone in the audience with that remark. It was like they were all lacking in some way that was evident only to JF'nK.
If I get a Christophe haircut, I'll send Kerry a check for the difference. <sarcasm
I thought the dims were against profiling?
Exactly what I thought when he said that. What a haughty buffoon.
Maybe John Edwards was channelling their thoughts to Kerry.
I think it's the shoes. If your shoes can't be spotted from yards away as Italian, you're a piker earning $199K or less. Sure glad Bill Gates wasn't in the room; he would also have never passed Kerry's "Global Snob Test."
I caught this, too. My immediate thought was "What a snob!"
Good point! sKerry has to go.
I kind of forgot about that but now that I am remembering that, it was funny. What was he calling everyone? Low life scum. Kerry probably promised all the people, after the show, that he would move their trailer homes to a swing state.
Yeah I look snooty in my Birks and Naots. I don't imagine Liveshot would be caught dead wearing cheap flip-flops.
Yeah, he's a regular freakin' Kreskin.
Kerry must have learned to recognize the "common riff-raff" in "Elitism 101" at the Swiss finishing school.
That's what I was thinking. $200k is a lot of money, but it's certainly not crazy to think that out of a room of more or less random Americans, a few of them might at least come close.
notice the MSN didnt seem to think its worth mentioning?
Apparently he could also tell that none of them had SPOUSES that earned more. I guess Kerry has a keen sense of Gigolodar.
