    Clint's speech...

    Unlike the Obama's the Romney's did not have it easy when they started out living in a basement apartment. BO lived a privledged life attending private school in Hawaii few people could afford. BO never had a regular job or ran a business. Michelle Obama revealed that she got into Princeton not on the strength of her grades, which she admits were unexceptional, but thanks to her brother Craig, a star athlete and gifted student who preceded her to the school. As a ‘legacy’ candidate and a beneficiary of affirmative action, Michelle Obama was granted an opportunity that others more accomplished were denied.
    The thesis written by Michelle LaVaughn Robinson (now Obama) in 1985, contains three unmitigated impediments that would have rendered the paper an automatic F in the Introduction to the Research Paper yet it was accepted at her Ivy League Princeton University alma mater. Moochelle came from a upper middle class family. The Obama's are out of touch with America having never faced the struggles that most Americans face. Aided by affirmative action, big money connections and insulating themselves from a multi cultural America they don't understand life outside the black community and are of the opinion they were screwed by white America and carry a chip on thier shoulder when the opposite is true.

      “Unlike the Obama's the Romney's did not have it easy when they started out. The Obama's are out of touch with America having never faced the struggles that most Americans face.” – fake ricky with the L

      Dude, just putting nonsense together doesn’t mean it’s remotely true, or that you’re influencing anyone at all. You are beyond delusional and look hideously foolish.

      Right, Mitt had it really tough, growing up in the ghettos of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and having to fight it out in the ‘hood at Cranbook Preparatory School. His dad became Governor when Mitt was only 15. I’m sure a 3 time Governor and CEO of American Motors didn’t leave much inheritance to pass on - probably just an old Nash Rambler and a savings bond.

      He also said earlier this year, that he didn’t inherit any money from his father. But then he qualified that: “What I got from my parents when they passed away I gave away to charity and TO MY KIDS.”

      “Passing your inheritance on to your children is not the same as not inheriting money at all. And it actually makes me a bit curious: a common estate-tax reduction strategy known as a dynasty trust relies on skipping generations. Did Romney pass on his inheritance to his kids for tax reasons? It's hard to know without seeing his tax returns—and that's another reason why he should release them.” – Nick Baumann, Mother Jones

      So, in your eyes, he’s a self-made man. Let’s see how he did that, and what you, some dipstick in a cubicle at minimum wage, is defending:

    • Really? You're going to try to argue that Romney had a rough upbringing, and the Obama's were born with silver spoons? Did Paul Ryan tell you that?

      But hey, why not. Like Clint, you create an imaginary Obama. May as well make up an imaginary Romney.
