Mitt Romney was born with a “silver spoon” in his mouth to a father who was a success story in the auto industry.
Mitt Romney had the opportunity to attend Harvard for a law degree and a business degree.
Mitt Romney was able to use personal contacts, through his wealthy family, to multiply the wealth of the Romney family.
Mitt Romney grew up with an attitude of entitlement, that he was ordained to lead because of his family connections and business contacts.
Mitt Romney is not the first modern President to have similar advantages.
Theodore Roosevelt had these advantages. So did Franklin D. Roosevelt,. John F. Kennedy, George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush.
But none of the above wore their wealth quite like Mitt Romney!
All of them engaged in politics more than Mitt Romney, who took the route of the least government service and experience, a minimum four years as Massachusetts Governor.
All of the other wealthy Presidents at birth had their own character flaws and shortcomings as we all do.
But none of them were cocky and arrogant, at least in public, quite like Mitt Romney is!
And none of their wives quite acted as Ann Romney is displaying, also an attitude of entitlement and arrogance!
It is one thing to be wealthy. It is another thing to boast about it, to emphasize it, to be cocky and arrogant, and act as if one is entitled!
What Mitt Romney and Anne Romney lack is a sense of modesty and humility!
The other Presidents tried very hard to make the American people forget their personal wealth and status, although, of course, it was there for all to see!
But Mitt and Anne Romney exude wealth, and make it out to be a virtue they wish to publicize.
And no one really likes a wealthy person who acts this way. It is not a nice character trait to brag or to boast.
Rather, it is nice when one goes out of his or her way to divert attention to one’s wealth, and to show concern for average Americans who are not so fortunate.
So Theodore Roosevelt showed concern with labor rights.
So Franklin D. Roosevelt showed concern about the poor during the Great Depression.
So John F. Kennedy planned a War on Poverty, and concern about racial discrimination.
So George H. W. Bush showed concern about the problems of the disabled and handicapped.
So George W. Bush showed concern about health care prescription costs for senior citizens.
How has Mitt Romney displayed concern for those less fortunate than himself?
The answer is that he has NOT displayed concern for anyone less fortunate, wanting to see the auto industry collapse, as just the tip of the iceberg as to his lack of care about how ordinary people are affected in their daily lives. He has displayed lack of concern about labor rights, the plight of the poor, discrimination against Hispanics and Latinos, and the cutting of Medicaid for the disabled and elderly.
This man has no “heart”, and while one who is cynical might argue that the other wealthy Presidents were just putting on a facade of concern, the old saying goes: Action speaks louder than words!
