CommentsThis article has no purpose. It is not scholarly and references no facts. It's simply a one-sided rant to persuade the reader that Mitt Romney is not what he's shown himself to be. It's ok to be rich. It's not ok to want to lead the country with no ability or genuine desire to relate to the common everyday citizen. mitt lost because "we the people" did not want him as our president. Funny how President Obama was not mentioned. Why? Because he came from virtually nothing to become President and it's obvious to everyone that he actually cares about the country as opposed to the title. A grown man actually wrote this silly article? How sad.

An interesting read on the influence of money and foreign powers in American politics is Epstein's, "Dossier: The Secret History of Armand Hammer" describing the sympathies held by the Hammer family for the "progressive ideas" of the Soviet Bolsheviks and Lenin in particular. Lenin called Armand Hammer his capitalist prince and it was Hammers mission to find points of influence within Washington politics. He found Al Gore, Sr. and financed this southern gentleman in some business ventures which were inherited by Al Gore, Jr. the glo-bull warming fraudster.
Bottom line is that Al Gore's future originated with the seed capital that Lenin provided through Armand Hammer—so not much has changed in American politics during Al Gore's lifetime.

Oh excuse me just a minute here. First of all, as to hypocrisy, let's not forget that the GOP lamblasted Gore & Kerry for the wealth and liberal elitism. It's the ONLY way that party gets a vote from any of the bottom earners of this country. Second, the wealth is completely irrelevant. It's what Romney does with the wealth - like putting it in tax havens in the Caymans to avoid paying US taxes. We're supposed to elect a US President who doesn't pay his fair share of US taxes???? And you say it's hyporitical to point that out?? Gobsmacked. Finally, that would be the "success" of Mitt Romney. He managed to avoid taxes. But he *did* sign a health care law in Massachusetts, which apparently is only *not* a success when Obama signs a similar law. Conservatives are apparently as confused and dishonest in Canada as in the US.

There are good Christians and bad Christians...

Harry Reid (a Mormon) is both the best reason and the worst reason for electing Mitt Romney...if you get my drift.

Interesting that most of US presidents mentioned have never done an honest day's work in their lives amongst real people. They do not know what it is to apply for a real job, budget a paycheck, and find a way to finance higher education through part time and summer work. How in the world can they expect to run a nation?

"Mormons will be portrayed as anti-Black, anti-women and anti-Hispanic, a cult of wealthy elitists - you can count on it"
That argument won't fly because there are SEVERAL Mormons in our US Congress including HARRY REID.

And, still, the people will not mass in the streets and stop this country in its tracks until the thugs are ousted!

Inherited Family fortunes of FDR, JFK, Gore and Kerry Compared to Romney
Posted by Dr. Norman Berdichevsky on Apr 4, 2012 at 07:29 PM
Democrat presidents FDR and JFK and recent candidates Al Gore (2000) and John Kerry (2004) all eminently qualify for the 1% club
Nowhere in the history of recent political campaigns has a party (The Democrats) engaged in such hypocritical nonsense as the new party line that “Mitt Romney is out of touch with ordinary Americans in the 99% “(according to the Occupy movement) because of his earned wealth which puts him in the category of the 1 %.More...
