Here’s an amusing irony, in light of Mitt Romney’s 47 percent secret video: Mitt Romney’s father, former Michigan Governor George Romney, was once “on relief.”
In this video, cut from a 1962 Romney for Governor informercial, Lenore Romney talks about why her husband would be a good Governor of Michigan. Interestingly, Lenore Romney sounds very similar to how Ann Romney described Mitt Romney in her convention speech last week — though Lenore also describes George as “a refugee from Mexico. He was on relief – welfare relief – for the first years of his life.”
Victimless Rhyme (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Romney’s father was once “on relief.”
47 percenter — good grief!
Does that mean that Mitt’s dad
Would not vote for his lad?
Was he Michigan’s Victim in Chief?
