Mini-Rumination: George Washington and Mitt Romney

Just something to chew on for those who think that Mitt Romney, because he’s so wealthy, can’t possibly understand the concerns of ordinary Americans and isn’t suited to be president for that reason.  At the time of the revolutionary war, George Washington – you know, I-chopped-down-the-cherry-tree, I-cannot-tell-a-lie, first-in-war-first-in-peace-first-in-the-hearts-of-his-countrymen George Washington – was, if not the wealthiest man in the colonies, then certainly one of the wealthiest.

Something to think about.
