DAD was a welfare QUEEN

Mitt Romney’s father, George Romney, was public aid recipient as child after family fled Mexico

By Alan Wirzbicki, Globe Staff

Mitt Romney had harsh words for welfare recipients in a hidden-camera videotape from a May fundraiser that was leaked this week.

But his own father was once among public aid recipients.

As the Globe has previously reported, George Romney’s family fled from Mexico in 1912 to escape a revolution there, and benefited from a $100,000 fund established by Congress to help refugees who had lost their homes and most of their belongings.

That fund may have been what Lenore Romney, George Romney’s wife and Mitt Romney’s mother, was referring to in a video that was posted online earlier this month but has received renewed attention in the wake of Mitt Romney’s comments.

“[George Romney] was on welfare relief for the first years of his life. But this great country gave him opportunities,” Lenore Romney said in the video, which apparently dates back to George Romney’s 1962 run for governor of Michigan.

In Mitt Romney’s remarks at the May fundraiser, he said that 47 percent of people are dependent upon government, and described that segment of the population as a lost cause, both as prospective GOP voters and more generally.

“I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives,” he said.

Right, thanks. I was under the impression that you had to be born on US territory, a military base, or the continental US.

An afterthought: If Obama had been born overseas, but both parents were citizens, would there still be a birther movement?

As per the 14th Amendment

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

The law regarding children of US citizens born abroad has changed. When Obama was born if only one parent was a citizen they had to have been a citizen 21 years when the child was born. I assume this was aimed at naturalized citizens but Obama's mom was only 18 and truthers argue this would have made "Kenyan born" Barak Jr. a non-citizen. By the time my 1st daughter was born (1995) this had changed.

Thanks for posting that, Steve. Romney is a penis. I think he is worse that more conservative Republicans like Santorum and Bachman because they at least have principles that they stand for. "Willard" keeps shifting his stances so as to best fit his agenda.

The Mitt Romney Dog on Car Roof Story: An Introduction

rusty_favicon.jpg Rusty, Founder of Dogs Against Romney

I have had many requests for a catch-all place for newbies to our cause to get caught up on the back-story behind Mitt Romney's cruelty toward the Romney family dog. Anyone who Google's "Mitt Romney dog" will find literally thousands of articles about it, but here I have collected some of what I consider to be the most succinct. Read these stories if you are new to Dogs Against Romney or, if you are a veteran member, share this link with your friends who don't yet know the truly revolting details of Romney's callousness toward poor Seamus, the Irish Setter.
