  •  That line about wanting everyone to have (16+ / 0-)

    opportunity was also used by the very wealthy, privileged Al Gore, who did not deny his privilege but rather owned it and then said he would like to work to expand the opportunities he'd had to others. THAT'S how you do it as a rich person, Mitt.

    •  FDR and the Kennedys were the same way... (7+ / 0-)

      People could respect them because they never pretended to be something they weren't. They never patronized the public with nonsensical stories about shopping at Costco, for instance. And like Al Gore, they spent their careers trying to help those who were born with far less than they'd been given. They had what Mitt Romney lacks - a conscience, integrity, a sense of duty and a desire for justice.

          likes or respects Mitt Romney, and it isn't because of his wealth.
          It's because he's a phony.

          Even his loathsome politics aren't his truly own; they're a hand-me-down from the Tea Party.

          Ted Kennedy nailed it when he said: "Mitt Romney isn't pro-choice or anti-choice, he's multiple choice."

          Mitt may not agree with you today, but just wait a while, and sooner-or-later, he'll claim to see things your way.
