Mitt Romney’s comments about moochers are getting lots of notice, but something else he said caught my attention. Does he really think people will believe this?:
I have inherited nothing. There is a perception, ‘Oh, we were born with a silver spoon, he never had to earn anything and so forth.’
Here’s Ann Romney discussing their student days:
They were not easy years… Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time.
The stock came from Mitt’s father. …
That sounds pretty tough, doesn’t it? One of them almost had to get a job! Thank god (or dad) for that stock. [Oh, and since we’re on the topic of statements that are of questionable veracity, here’s more on Ryan’s tall tales.]
