Mitt Romney's mother, speaking in a 1962 film produced for George Romney's gubernatorial campaign, says that Mitt Romney's father "was on relief, relief welfare" in the early years of his life, but that "this great country gave him opportunities."
Mitt Romney ... spawn of the 47 percent?
You know, we've only owned our home for the last four years. He was on relief, welfare relief, for the first year's of his life. But this great country gave him opportunities.
As Jon Stewart said
: "Oh my God. George Romney was on welfare. So according to Mitt Romney's own logic, Mitt Romney could not win the vote of his dad."
