12. He just got richer through his vulture capitalism model, but he was already

born with a gold spoon in his mouth. A lot of today's multi-millionaires and billionaires took what was a fortune already and expanded it into Croesus-like riches because the environment to triple and quadruple fortunes was there for them to take advantage. I used to work with these people when I worked in the trust department of a bank. I asked one of our multi-millionaire clients how he did it. He told me making the first million was the hardest. After that the money seemed to come to him like a magnet. So Mittens didn't make it like Steve Jobs, who came from a working class background and who really did become a multi-millionaire through his own efforts in his lifetime. Mittens is far from that model.
