• Mitt Romney Will Not Apologize for His Silver Spoon

    Mitt RomneyYesterday, President Obama informed a crowd of Ohio voters that he "wasn't born with a silver spoon in [his] mouth," saying that everybody should receive the same chances that he received, so that they may also (presumably) make similar concessions to Wall Street puppet masters and corporate lobbyists for theĀ privilegeĀ of acquiring their own silver spoons.

    It is also, however, a not-so-subtle jab at Mitt Romney, who was born rich. And then grew up rich. And then continued to be rich, and will be rich until the day he dies, at which point he will go on to rule over a planet, which will almost certainly be rich in silver spoon resources.

    Romney responds

    "I'm certainly not going to apologize for my dad and his success in life," Romney said. "He was born poor. He worked his way to become very successful despite the fact that he didn't have a college degree and one of the things he wanted to do was provide for me and for my brother and sisters. I'm not going to apologize for my dad's success. But I know the president likes to attack fellow Americans. He's always looking for a scapegoat, particularly those that have been successful like my dad."

    So, is this the most indignant statement of pretty-much total agreement we've heard in a while?
