The republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, continues to face a slew of questions regarding his vast wealth.
With a net worth of over $200 million, the former Massachusetts governor has been ridiculed throughout his campaign for his inability to relate to many Americans who are currently struggling.
In an interview broadcast on Thursday, Foxs Bill Hemmer asked the GOPer and his wife, Ann, about their immense wealth.
Back to the connection [with the voters] aspect of this. There will be people...who will look at you and just say, successful rich guy, Hemmer put to him.
In response, Romney likened himself to two of the most iconic presidents in history.
Like FDR and John F. Kennedy, Romney responded, There have been plenty of people.
JFKs father was one of the wealthiest men in America and was the first chairman of the SEC. Almost all of his income came from a trust he shared with other family members.
This is not a nation that divides people based on whether theyve been successful or not. We dont say, Oh, boy, this person won the lottery and therefore they cant understand me. We instead look at people and celebrate their success and their achievements, and we look for people who have the skills we think will make our lives better, Romney added.
What I find is that the statistics understate the kind of pain and insecurity that exists in Americas homes. I see many people who may be employed but are very concerned that they could lose their job at any time.
Ann Romney added that her husbands work ethic had helped him achieve success. Hes the hardest working person Ive ever met, besides his father, George Romney, who was a crazy man, she said.
Meanwhile on Thursday, former first lady Nancy Reagan endorsed Mitt Romney for Novembers presidential race.
The widow of President Ronald Reagan said that her Ronnie would have liked Romneys business background and his "strong principles."
Reagan (90) served lemonade and cookies to Mitt Romney and his wife when they visited her LA home.
Later, Nancy Reagan issued a statement which read.
Mitt and Ann Romney joined me at my home this afternoon for some lemonade and cookies and I offered my firm endorsement of his campaign for President. Although I know he will not be the official nominee of the Republican Party until August in Tampa, Florida, I am thrilled that after Tuesdays primary he is the clear choice, having won the magic number of 1,144 convention delegates."
How about "it's still immense and it's still ours".
If being wealthy in itself is considered bad, then anyone with wealth will be considered bad.
Thus, communism will be the only good form of government where everyone is the same and good.
Mitt Romney will be the next Ronald Reagan.
You owe me a keyboard
Make that two.
“The republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, continues to face a slew of questions regarding his vast wealth....”
...exclusively from destructive, class warfare-fomenting Communist journalists.
Here’s another of their tricks:
SOME SAY, that talentless journalists couldn’t succeed at any other job but the easy, undemanding one they are in, that requires no intellect, has no standards and no accountability. How do you respond to those accusations Ms. MediaPerson?
Then you know that Reagan's tenure as President was far more conservative than his governance of California.
I actually met President Reagan TWICE. At the recommissioning of USS Iowa in 1982 and at Charleston Naval Shipyard in 1983 when he came to see the new Trident C4 missile system. He shook my hand. Romney is a Reaganite and will make a great President.
He has the opportunity if he chooses.
Check out Irish Central. It’s a far left vicious anti-conservative site. Feh!
Since I lived in California most of the period from four months after my birth in 1960 to 1974, I am familiar with what was happening then, yes.
“Only if he does a 180 from his Massachusetts governance”
You have got to be joking. Governor Romney turned a $3 Billion deficit into a $750 million surplus WITHOUT rasing taxes. He closed loopholes, cut spending and raised fees. He actually pushed to state legislature to decrease the Massachusetts income tax from 5.3% to 5.0%. That is the kind of fiscal leadership we need in Washington.
You’re kidding, right, moonshot? Tell me you are joking.
Thank you, svcw, for expressing the same feelings that I have in regard to Moonbat’s morning slobber. HURL!
JFK was more conservative than either Bush....
