2012 Republican National Convention: Day 3

 “My dad, as you probably know, was the governor of Michigan and was the head of a car company. But he was born in Mexico. . . and uh, had he been born of uh, Mexican parents, I’d have a better shot at winning this. . . But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. He lived there for a number of years. I mean, I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino.”

“There is a perception, ‘Oh, we were born with a silver spoon, he never had to earn anything and so forth.’ Frankly, I was born with a silver spoon, which is the greatest gift you can have: which is to get born in America.”

-Mitt Romney at a recent fundraiser (via Vanity Fair)
