Backlash: Romney coverage drives some to class warfare fatigue

Aside from a fat cigar, a silk waistcoat and a solid gold pocket watch chain, nothing really says “evil capitalist” like an offshore bank account. The Obama campaign eagerly took to Twitter today (with hilarious results) to promote Vanity Fair’s look into this “murky world” of Romney’s riches. But has class warfare fatigue already set in?

So basically the Democrat strategy from here on out is "jealousy." #tcot #p2

@gscottoliver Jealousy has always been there but now they have a "laser like focus" on it.

Vanity Fair can’t be expected to do all the heavy lifting. MarketWatch notes that possible running mate Rob Portman is among the wealthiest members of Congress. Who knows what types of money fights could take place in the White House walk-in vault with these two in charge?

Obama's included the dumbest MT @MarketWatch Mitt Romney's short list of VP picks includes Congresses' wealthiest and poorest #tcot
