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.

    "The American Dream is dead, I tell you. If you cannot hit a grand slam by being the next Facebook, forget about it."

    I could have sworn that I read countless comments by you that our economy had turned around and we are on the path to success due to Obama's efforts. What gives?

    FYI...the American Dream is alive and well. Just look who is president. Jeez. So sad that you feel that way.

    Someone needs to remind "Queen Anne Romney" to abdicate her role as a self-declared member of royalty.

    I actually agree with you.
    I do believe however that Rudy NYC was referencing the "economic" American dream inlcuding the house, job security, putting the kids through college, the pension, retirement.

    If only because as was clearly evident during their 2012 visit to Great Britain, the English do NOT want them either!

    If you have a college education, you are likely to do just fine, assuming it is not a masters degree in basket weaving.

    If you are a high school drop out or have no higher education, your life will more than likely be very very tough. No education and/or having kids out of wedlock are the prime reasons people end up in poverty. So if the American Dream is dead to you, then you likely killed it for yourself. There is no grand conspiracy as the leftist in here claim to keep people down. Well, actually, their approach to life guarantees it.

    @Dominican,
    The "economic" American dream is also alive. For the vast vast majority of Americans, if they work hard, stay out of trouble and don't do stupid things they will unquestionably be successful. I can look at the people I work with, male and female, different races, different religions and different socio-economic backgrounds and I can tell you that they all have a common trait – none make excuses for their plight, they work hard and are rewarded based on their performance. Period.

    You can whine and complain and say "woe is me" or you can work hard. The odds are stacked very much in your favor. Is life fair? No. Do some people have a better chance than others? Yes. Does that really matter? No.

    Why? Because we have a man who comes from a broken household and meager means and is now President. Or you could look at someone like Condeleeza Rice. Same story. I could go on and on.

    My grandmother had 49 grandchildren... and was a nice person.

    Where's her article?

    It is really getting funny. So, Romney's family are feeling royally blessed because they have got the child the same day like the Royal family in England!!! What about when they sent their horse "Rafalca" to England and be in the competition. Did they feel that their horse also belong to the Royal family? Dreaming is good BUT sometimes it takes you somewhere , where you will never be.

    Oh, dear. The "work hard and achieve crowd" sermonizing on a Mitt Romney article of royal succession . . . Romney style.

    Just want to comment in regards to everyone who are saying how "queen ann" is some self-declaring royal member.

    Sorry, I had a baby 10 months ago, and I felt like a King. There's almost nothing that brings more joy than your baby being born into your life, and so the comment Mr. Romney made saying they felt royally blessed is an understatement. Any of you with kids would understand. And anyone who is making these comments look pitifully ignorant and ridiculous.

    "royally blessed." The british monarchy must be laughing their Arsses loudly, You are either royalty, or not. How arrogant this guy, again. He always puts his foot in his mouth.

    @James. Thank goodness anyone is breeding like rabbits? We overplayed our hand at the first billion humans.

    Just let me know how much goodness you're feeling when we hit 20.

    Odds are in Mitt's favor with 5 sons and 22 grandchildren that one of them will fulfill White Horse Prophecy!

    So he thinks of his family as Royal. How Republican. So's mine; America is the land where every man is a king.

    "Sorry, I had a baby 10 months ago, and I felt like a King." If you had the baby, you'd have felt like a Queen.

    I was listening to you, truly listening to you until you got to that part.
    Why does it always have to be a left right thing?
    I would engage with you guys if you just set aside the left right bs.
    There may be some absolutes in life but believe me the whole left right thing is not one of them.
    BTW you DO realize that you can have children out of wedlock and still have a two parent home right?
    You do realize that millions of Americans lost their jobs due to outsourcing dontcha? Jobs that they thought would see them through to their retirement?
    You do realize that millions of Americans lost their retirement money when the economy crashed. These are Americans in their late 50's early 60's, 70's, 80's.
    I quite agree and believe that education is the key, but let us be realistic in admitting that at age 65 or 70 not even the best education will get your retirement money back.

    Good to see families that contribute also breed like rabbits. It's not just certain groups who then qualify for more government assistance.

    Another child for the planet-heaven of kolob with their polygamist Jesus Christ and their prophet Joepsh Smith and his 87 wives. Hope they all become Gods on the planet kolob and fianlly get to see the 200 pound gold tablets and the archangel moroni. Mr 47 percent and corporations are people would have been a terrible president. his multinational bank accounts would have led to a lot of conficts of interest.

    I really hope that the troll commenting here truly believe that the American Dream is dead... Less competition for the intelligent.

    Congratulations Romney family!

    These grandchildren will be raised to respect America, have integrity, serve their fellowman, and be good examples to those around them. Why all the disrespect to this family. Still unhappy that we didn't get a president who would have tried to bring values to this country rather than one who is pushing contention amongst people instead of addressing issues that are important. BO's agenda, the new world order. Look it up, this is BO's dream.
    I respect the Romney family and all they stand for. The American dream is alive and well when I look at this family. Values and closeness are what they strive for. Lets get off their backs. They love America and the American dream which is slowly being destroyed each day.

    22 is not going to cut it. He will need a lot more to win an election.
