    The average American doesn't worry about their stylist and dress designer not seeing eye-to-eye. Or do the architect and landscaper get along?

    I've spent time with people worth $100 million +. They don't know how to drive a car or even where to find meat in their neighborhood supermarket. That's not saying their 'bad' people. If they came from nothing, the have some respect for the working class. But some wives forget where they came from and act like they were born in the Country Club (that their husband pays for).
    That is exactly the type of response you get when ignorance is mixed with envy. You take a caricature and apply it to someone you know nothing about and pretend it can stand in for reality. Well, it cant. It also seems apparent that the left has moved from the absurd notion that only women can speak on issues concerning women to only certain--liberal approved--women can speak to issues concerning women. Can you give me the name of that politician who is the gatekeeper on womens class struggles?

    Or make assumptions. Have they presented any 'evidence' that when Mit met and married his wife, and they started having kids, that they were already 'rich', or was he just getting started?

    Of course not, as looking into someones life might provide information that goes against their point.

    Mitt came from a wealthy family, and I suppose his education was paid for by his parents. But HE did the work at school. He did Law School and his MBA
    SIMULTANEOUSLY.....that shows some smarts, which we need in govt. Common sense, tho? Surely by now he knows that some of us wonder if he can identify with the little people, and will choose his advisors accordingly.
    My experience with Mormons is that they get things done without worrying so much about accolades.
    If Romney wins, it will likely be very interesting to watch what happens. I doubt GOP cronyism will be in his playbook....

    exactly, detractors should now go and research, but first remove the blinders...

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Since Willard's daddy was rich, and his grandaddy (the one with lots of wives), it's probably fair to assume that Willard never had to worry about where his next meal was coming from. He's the same age as me. While I was fighting a war in Vietnam he was undertaking his Mormon mission in - wait for it - Paris. Yeah, he's always been rich.

    Aahhhh, the 'I'm really rich and you're just jealous' approach. One of my favorites.

    So you are another that doesn't know anything about his life? That would rather just judge without information?
