    Mitt Romney is Son of Welfare-Receiving, Mexican Immigrant,
    Mother Says


    The GOP presidential ticket of Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan is fond of attacking 'social entitlements,' but their campaign has failed to mention that Mitt Romney's father George Romney was on "welfare relief" when he first arrived in the U.S., according to an interview with Romney's mother Lenore recorded in 1962.

    The family received $250, food, clothing, and other supplies from the U.S. government. The family later invested some of their money in the stock market and used that cash to send George Romney to college.

    GEORGE ROMNEY: I've been poor. I worked from the time I was 12. My parents were driven out of old Mexico when i was only 5. My people were revolutionary refugees. They had to be fed by the United States government and housed by the United States government . I know what poverty is. I've been up through it.

    On another note, if he can lift himself out of poverty and attain such success, why can't the rest of the useless?

    Because Romney and Ryan now want to eliminate the same programs that helped each of their families lift themselves up?

    So the Romney family was political refugees and they took aid from the US govt until they got their lives back on line here, oh the horror.

    Sooooooo, that is somehow supposed to support illegals from Mexico today that aren't political refugees, they just want to take your job.

    Oh, ok.

    Where have they said they want to eliminate the same programs?

    Even if they did(which they didn't), what does that got to do with the useless claiming "it isn't fair" for the last generation or two?

    Again, if he can do it through hard work and a helping hand to get on his feet, why can't the rest who live on excuses and have been getting "a helping hand" for so long it's become generational.

    Mind of a liberal "Oh......the great, great, great grandparents of Buuuuuuuuuush were on welfare when they got off the boat from Ireland, so that proves he is a hypocrite and should give up his millions now."

    Most refugees that came to America got some form of Govt help, you idiot liberals.

    The difference between the Romneys and illegals of today is that the Romneys came to America under legal terms whereas illegals are fucking illegal.
