‘Billionaire’ Romney to Parade ‘Dysfunctional’ Family at RNC

Hard to fathom how this unsubstantiated, riddled with errors nonsense actually made it into a “news” story.

Against the backdrop of a tasteful wood-panelled set – originally built for Oprah Winfrey – the 65-year-old billionaire will introduce relatives who range from his sister Jane (who was obliged by a failed marriage to take up an acting career) to a brother who was excommunicated for his sexual sins by the Mormon church.

Romney’s a billionaire? Really?
I suppose fact-checkers are in very short supply at the Daily Mail.
Matt Romney, 41, the second son, is a property developer. He and his wife Laurie have four children. The couple irked Mitt’s fellow Republicans last year when they attended a Halloween party dressed as Sarah Palin and her husband Tom.
Tom Palin? Who’s that? So a guy with an impeccable family life has a “dysfunctional” family, unlike Obama’s All-American childhood living under different identities. Oh, and Tom Palin. Is this actually supposed to be journalism?

    Yeah, that’s awful.

    The Mail’s stories about 0bama have been just as bad, as You’ve probably noticed.

    I didn’t know about Mitt’s brother, though, so thanks.
