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.

    Political comments are QUITE in place here.
    This piece of fluff belongs somewhere ELSE not the Political Ticker.
    The reason it is on the Political Ticker is because Romney is still considered a political figure, THUS the political comment NOT about the baby, but about his grandparents.
    I did express "delight" at the birth, but if you put your "stuff" out there under politics you are going to get the addendum.

    "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...."

    Yeah. Romney Royalty succession: An heir ... a spare ... + 20 more just in case.

    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.
    ------------------
    Listen to your own hyperbolic hate. Anti-mormonists? Try anti-Romney-ists?

    The man is a complete fake, which is quite typical for the salesman that he is. Too bad that he's so ingrained into this false persona that he projects that he cannot concieve the fact that people can see completely right through it.

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

    Puleeze. Where have you been living these past 5 years?
    Please Google ANY story even REMOTELY associated with Obama, his wife or his children.

    Michigan Mitt and Queen Ann are grandparents again....I am thrilled!!! My grandparents had 34 but they never made the news. Oh I think I know why, we didn't have a golden spoon in our mouths at birth!

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

    Try telling that to the entire Republican party. You wouldn't dare because they'd call you a RINO and kick you out.

    enjoy your blessing Mr. Romney. All children are blessings to be loved and enjoyed. Thankfully mom and baby are fine.

    So sad how bitter many of these comments are...so they have 5 kids and 22 grandkids. Guess what? The taxpayers arent' supporting them, are they? so stop judging.

    It's sad how small people are in this country when they hate others for being financially successful. It's entirely possible for anyone in this country with a work ethic to earn enough for a place to live and enough food to feed their family. So what if some people get a few extra perks because of hard work or good luck?

    why anyone care about 22 + other numbers.. when they have an island and swiss bank account. it is none of anyone's business.

    People need to be more responsible and stop having so many children. The planet is overpopulated enough.

    Why do you still cover this? Romney is a has been. He is a pathetic loser! Nobody cares about Romney anymore!

    of course the taxpayers are supporting them, Mitt is NOT a taxpayer, so he can't be

    "Too bad that he's so ingrained into this false persona that he projects that he cannot concieve the fact that people can see completely right through it."

    Which is no doubt the basis for so many comments. It is Mr. Mittens who opened up the conversation with his own royal-ness. Had it been otherwise he would have been given a few congratulatory comments.

    As it is, this story is silly and deserves the silly comments.

    Well, I for one send them a congratulations. No baby should be dogged like the haters here have done. Shame on you.

    -------------------
    Mitt Romney's money has nothing to do with it. The man is a fake, which is why so many conservatives dislike him, too. And, it is not "entirely possible for anyone in this country with a work ethic to earn enough for a place to live and enough food to feed their family." The war against the middle class began with Reaganomics, and the Great Recession finally killed the American dream.

    Remember, on the campaign trail Romney referred to jobs at Stables as "good middle class jobs." On the same campaign trail, Herman Cain told us, "If you're not rich by now, then it's your own fault." The American Dream is dead, I tell you. If you cannot hit a grand slam by being the next Facebook, forget about it.

    So! Queen Anne Romney thinks it's "royal blessing"? How Republican and 1% that comment is.
