    since I have not listened to all the tape ... I just can't.  But my daughter has and is furious. She says that Mitt tells a story about how Ann's father's family was so poor that everyone pooled their money so that one of them could go to college and make the dream come true.  The lucky one was Ann's father who did quite well.  But, again, according to my daughter, he ends by saying something like "Can you imagine being stupid/silly/selfish/gullible as giving up your money to help your brother get ahead?

    I have tired to listen to the tapes to verify this but I get physically ill after a few minutes.  Does anyone know if this is true?  It seems in character for Mitt. And my daughter is more furious over that than over the 47% or the Mexican jokes.

    The man is a piece of work ...

      and them quipped:

      "Can you imagine -- I never would have 'helped my brother' like that."


      aka Mitt reveals his "true colors".

        Guess there is not reason to think he would help a stranger when he won't even help family.  Strange man.
