If Romney were to somehow become the nominee, the press would use this to destroy him.

Why? They didn't go after Forbes. He made money the american way, he earned it. How can the press attack someone that is successful? Because he hasn't given most of it away to the poor? Then again, the press can attack him for anything. maybe the food in his basement.

Steve Forbes DID NOT earn his money, he inherited a publishing empire from his father and the press did not make a big deal out of it because they never gave him a real shot at the nomination.

How can the press attack someone that is successful?

As long as they have an "R" after their name, they're fair game.
