Romney, Kerry and Kennedy
To: undisclosed-recipients: Sent: Tuesday, April 24, 2012 10:15 PM Subject: Fwd: It's all how you look at it.
Begin forwarded message:
It just occurred to me ... with all the noise the media is making out of Romney's wealth, I don't recall such bluster and hand-wringing over the Kennedy fortune or, for that matter, John Kerry or the fact that John Kerry gave virtually nothing to charity while Romney gave something on the order of $4 million. Oh, wait! I just remembered. Romney is Republican. Kerry and the Kennedys are Democrats. Also, Romney worked for his money. Kennedy inherited his, and Kerry married it.
Silly me. (I shoulda had a V8)
Would you say anything about Kerry's wealth if you had a wife who looked like this and was the one who really controlled the wealth? Recall her nominating speech all those years ago? It was all about her, not her husband. After that speech, you heard very little from her for the rest of the race.
And “poor” Algore, the Wizard and Tennessee Valley Authority never could give him a conscience.
Except for the fact that Mitt is where he is today because of his rich daddy, George.
Romney worked for his money? Not exactly.

Didn’t son Mitt carry on or continued building the ‘family’ wealth.
And how do we know, anyway, whether son Mitt wouldn’t have accomplished the same without the father.
I would compare Romney against obama. ie..
one (may have) inherited family money - Romney, and makes no bones about the fact, but,
the other - obama, lies denies, pits, one group against another.
Fact is: obama went to private schools, was raised in wealth, never went without —— unless, not being raised by your mother, not having strong family roots or sense of belonging. Actually, do we really know how obama was raised. obama’s life is so full of lies, wonder if he even knows. (and yes, that is how I see obama)
Compare the two families: you see the Romney’s together with their sons.
Mrs. obama flies all over the world doing her thing - who is taking care of the children, visits talk shows——
Mr. obama plays golf, flies all over the US and world, plays golf, pits one group against the other, plays golf, photo ops with the dog, photo ops photo ops etc. oh ya talk shows.
