Oh no! Romney's father was on welfare!?

That no-good useless, worthless bastard:

Romney's Father was on Welfare
BuzzFeed finds an amazing 1962 video in which Lenore Romney talks about why her husband George would be a good governor of Michigan in part because he was once "on relief -- welfare relief -- for the first years of his life."

Here's the video:

3. Romney's family left the US for Mexico to continue polygamy. Then when the

Mexican revolution happened, they turned tail and ran from it. So they came back to the US as 'revolutionary refugees' and were fully supported by the tax payers of the very nation they had abandoned just a few years before. We, the people, fed, clothed, housed and gave them pocket money. They took full advantage of the social safety nets in a nation they had once rejected.

history lesson.
I had never heard the term before, but now I see where Rmoney also referred to themselves at "war refugees".

4. Hmmm, well then, I guess Romney's parents were...

"parasites" according to Mary Matalin.

"There are makers and takers, there are producers and there are parasites," she said. "Americans can distinguish between those who have produced and paid in through no fault of their own and because of Obama's horrible polcies who cannot get a job or are underemployed. That's what the campaign is about."
