..but let’s forget that his father was dirt poor when he came to this country.
From ABC News:
Romney speaks frequently on the trail about his father’s humble upbringing. Born in Mexico, George Romney eventually moved to the United States where he was a lath and plaster apprentice who would sell paint out of the trunk of car to make extra money, according to Romney.
George Romney went on to become a successful businessman, becoming the head of American Motors Corp. and later serving as the governor of Michigan from 1963 to 1969.
And while Romney inherited much of his father’s fortune when he died, he did not keep it, instead donating it to charity.
Wow. A legal immigrant who worked hard and became successful. Imagine that.
And a rich guy who gave the majority of his inherited fortune to charity. How much does Obama give to charity again?
