OK, there are a million reasons not to like Mitt Romney, and I don't. Being rich isn't one of them. I don't know the details of how Romney became wealthy, but for the moment, let's assume it was not by taking it from tax payers.
When exactly did it become embarrassing to be rich? When did financial success become something that has to be explained or apologized for.
You will see Ann Romney's comments being discussed on numerous "progressive" blogs as some sort of crime. But Ron Paul's supporters are supposed to be in favor of business and the creation of wealth by individuals. Anti-war, pro-free markets.
That said, Ann Romney could have handled it better by saying "yes we've been very blessed. Mitt has provided very well for his family." No need to be ashamed of that.
P.S. There is no way in hell I'm voting for that warmongering, NWO shill, so don't any of you ever accuse me of being a Romneybot. I'm just sayin.
