Mitt Romney Speaks A Sad Truth

No More Mister Nice Blog

Mitt Romney recounted some advice from his father, former presidential candiate George Romney, in Sunday's NBC/Facebook debate about running for office: make sure you're set for cash already.

"I happened to see my dad run for governor when he was 54 years old," Romney said. "He had good advice to me. He said never get involved in politics if you have to win election to pay a mortgage. If you find yourself in a position when you can serve, you ought to have a responsibility to do so if you think you can make a difference, and don’t get involved in politics when your kids are still young because it may turn their heads."

And no, it does not hurt Mitt Romney because that is how most people already think. They KNOW that you have to be independently wealthy to run for high public office. They also know that having kids while being a politician is horrible hard on them This is a problem with our system, it is not Romney's fault.
