Tweet of the Day: Romney has another grandbaby

(CNN) - While the world's eye was on the royal baby Monday, plenty of other children came into the world, including Mitt Romney's latest grandchild–also a boy. "#22," he notes in his tweet.

In a nod to Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Romney said his family is also "royally blessed."

The new Romney baby belongs to Romney's son, Josh, and his wife Jen. In February, Craig Romney and his wife, Mary, had twins.

Romney has five sons.

    Who cares? The twit is a royal pain in the you know what.
    Glad the baby is doing well though but one picture is one too many for a child who has a loser like this for a grandfather.

    Our Josh and Jen also had a new baby boy yesterday. @AnnDRomney and I feel royally blessed.
    Delighted for you Queen Ann-toinette, especially in light of the fact that we will NOT be royally screwed by either you or your husband lording over us in the Oval Office.
    I'm sure the little tyke, just like the royal tyke, will inherit the riches that were plundered from the less fortunate by way of shipping our jobs overseas in order to make company CEOs richer.

    and his new grandson (named what...Truck?....Tiger?.....whatever dopey name they come up with) will live grander than the new prince. After all, Flip Flopney and Queen Anne have the money to toss around like confetti

    Just had a thought about healthcare and hospital costs for this birth.
    Is this the son who had to quit, according to queen ann with the ugly $1K t shirts, his jobs to help daddy conduct one of the worst political campaigns of all times?
    If it is the same "unemployed" son I am pretty sure that they don't have to worry about paying the bills for the child or mother.
    Move on CNN!

    Live a long happy life with your grandchildren. The twilight of your political career is well past sunset. Good night, Mitt.

    22 grandchildren? Lets say all of them have two kids. Thats 44 great grandchildren. Lets say all of them have two kids. Thats 132 kids in two generations. No worries about over population....

    Aww is Poor Romney feeling left out?

  13. Oh PLEASE

    Is this article here because Romney thinks of himself as royalty?

    Yes, because it would be horrible for you to say something courteous about someone else's moment of joy.

    Stay classy, CNN commenters.

    obviously. Past his own ego, it's not clear why this is even in the news. 22 grandkids is the definition of crazy religious fringe.

    They're trying to get as many new voters as possible for future endeavors!
    Mormons have been guiet lately! Must be the bad press from across the pond!
    The believers, aren't believing anymore!

    Planet Earth is overpopulated and struggling. The Romneys should do something for the planet and stop having so many children. Twenty-two grandchildren is just obscene and selfish.

    Talk about haters. Just read all of the anger and hate towards a man and woman who were lucky enough to have another grandchild. Wow. You guys are just a bunch of anti-mormonists.

    Suddenly I'm reminded of what happened last year around this time. Anyone remember Romney's "world tour" visit to London?

    Congratulations to Romney and family. Political comments are out of place here.

    And this is news, because?

    Maybe because Mitt Romney and procreation go hand in hand . . . . . ?

    (I'm just guessing because I have no real knowledge of royalty and how *it* works - on either this side or that side of the ocean.)

    Wow those Mormons sure know how to breed in an overpopulated world. Five sons and not one in the military – looks like with 22 Grandchildren they'll be no shortage of 1% chickenhawks.

    So the left wing nuts are still full of vitriol.
    Romney lost the election you can stop now!

    I never realized how bitter and angry the people are who comment on CNN. Such a sad absence of civility.
