Brian Kilmeade: You could also say Mitt Romney started with nothing, he didn’t get an inheritance from his dad, he was living in a two-room apartment when he got started, so he can relate.

Yeah, I suppose you could say that, inasmuch as it’s physically possible to form the words with your mouth.

Mediaite points us to a Politifact article about all that “nothing” Romney had. It includes a generous allowance, a free car, and no need to work.

Romney started college at Stanford, where his “allowance” was big enough for frequent plane tickets to sneak home to Michigan see his girlfriend, Ann, according to a recently published book by two Boston Globe journalists, “The Real Romney.”

… His parents’ wedding gift? A car. Meanwhile, the students — who started a family a year later — lived in a modest, $62-a-month basement apartment, Ann later told the Boston Globe. But they didn’t have to work.

“We were happy, studying hard. Neither one of us had a job, because Mitt had enough of an investment from stock that we could sell off a little at a time,” she said.

When the couple moved to Boston so Romney could study business and law at Harvard, his parents helped them buy a house….

I’m reminded of Alexandra Penny’s article in the wake of the Madoff scandal back in 2008, where she opined that she had nothing, absolutely nothing left except the offer of free lodging in an adorable little house in Santa Monica, a Palm Beach cottage and country house to sell, and contact with a major literary agent who can throw freelance work her way.
