Romney to Democrats: Stop attacking success or How many times can he say success or successful?

Amid repeated attacks from President Obama and Democrats, Mitt Romney defended his achievements in business and the wealth he accumulated in the private sector.

"There are people who are trying to attack success and are trying to attack our success. That's not going to be successful," Romney told CNN's Piers Morgan. "When you attack success you have less of it, and that's what we've seen in our economy over the last few years."

"Dividing America based on who has money and who hasn't -- who is successful and who is less successful. That is not the American way," he said.

The full CNN interview airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

Romney is worth up to $250 million, according to his financial disclosure report, and is one of the wealthiest presidential candidates to run for the White House in decades. His wealth comes from his work at Bain Capital, the private-equity company he co-founded.

Wonder if he feels he's been a success or successful in his UK visit? I'm betting Obama thinks so.

Romney In London: Not A Smashing Success So Far

The first stop — Britain — in Mitt Romney's foreign tour certainly is starting out rockier than nearly anyone expected.

First there was the kerfuffle over remarks, attributed by a British newspaper to an anonymous campaign adviser, that Romney understood the shared "Anglo-Saxon heritage" between the U.S. and Britain in a way President Obama didn't. Those comments were viewed as racist by some and were disowned by the Romney campaign.

Then the candidate himself caused a dust-up by saying he found "disconcerting" security and other glitches in the run-up to Friday's opening ceremony. It didn't help that at the same time, he appeared to express doubt about the eventual success of the games:


After a meeting with Romney at 10 Downing Street, the prime minister's residence, Romney "rowed back," as the British say, his earlier remarks. He allowed that he was now confident about the games:

"I am very delighted with the prospects of a highly successful Olympic Games. What I have seen shows imagination and forethought and a lot of organization and expect the games to be highly successful."

1. I have been wondering...

I wonder if there were any large companies that received "help" from Bain Capital.
