Jon Stewart ran this clip on his show, and talked about how Mitt Romney’s dad was once a welfare recipient. Stewart went on to say that Mitt Romney might not have been able to get his dad’s vote according to his own calculations. I see something different in this clip. I see his mother providing an honest answer to the question, and I like the fact that she does talk about how his dad started off poor, but did not let his circumstances define or confine him. He was able to rise above them and become an American success story. That is the promise of this country that we have the right to “pursue happiness” or success.
