9. The only thing Mitt built is Obama's strong lead.

Mitt's Dad made Mitt's life for him, Mitt's Dad was supported in childhood by the American People, via welfare benefits provided to Mormons who had left the US to have polygamist lives then returned when Mexico's revolution happened. So George was also not self made, his entire family was built on the social saftey net Mitt would deny to others in the same situation.
No Romney has ever been 'self made' just like no Romney has ever served in the US miliatary. They all, generationally, rely on other peopel for their leg up. George sure did, as did his parents the Welfare Romenys. Who are also the 'Fled the US for finer shores' Romenys, by the way.
