    I am seeing time after time left wingers attacking the idea of someone like Romney benefitting from his "rich daddy". And saying Ann Romney benefits from having a rich husband. And some saying white Republicans in general benefit from their rich starting point in life. As if it is somehow evil to set your kids up for a great future (is it?).

    So I ask........in 10 years, when we look back, will President Obama's daughters have benefitted financially from having a rich daddy? He was rich before winning in 2008 btw. Will Michelle Obama, after 2016, get off her butt and get a job? Or...will she rely on her rich, famous ex-president husband to take care of her?

    Or even better........does anyone suspect Warren Buffetts kids, or George Clooneys kids, or Keith Olbermann's kids, or Al Sharptons kids, or Michael Moores kids will ever get any benefit from having a "rich daddy"????

    I know, I know, that pesky demand for ideological "consistency", but liberals, really you gotta start having it.

    There's nothing wrong with having a rich daddy.

    There's nothing wrong with being a multi-millionaire.

    There's nothing wrong with paying 14% in taxes on millions of dollars in income- because that is the law.

    The problem I have is when the multi-millionaire with millions in income tells me its fair for him to pay a lower tax rate of taxation than my wife and I pay.
    We make 100k a year and we're supposed to pay a higher rate of taxation than someone who makes 21 MILLION a year? FUCK THAT!


    Warren Buffet's kids have actually already received all they are going to get from him, they aren't getting his money when he dies.

    Ok, fair enough.

    They aren't responding though. I just wanna know when is it ok, or not ok, to benefit from a "rich daddy". The Romneys, and Bush, both were supposedly bad for it. Others not.

    When both sides stop the denigration of families who pass on advantages, the discussion will be far better off.

    There is nothing wrong with being rich

    Romney is ridiculed when he tries to imply that his life experiences are the same as that of Americans who are struggling.
