Surprise! Mitt Romney is still rich

New York (CNNMoney) - Mitt Romney is worth between $84 million and $256 million, according to campaign disclosure forms released Friday by the Federal Election Commission.

That's actually down a little from last year, when the forms pegged Romney's net worth at between $85 and $264 million.

    Philanthropy etymologically means "the love of humanity"—love in the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, or enhancing; humanity.

    People with such wealth a Romney used to give ti the arts and culture,

    Romney's Philanthropic contributions only go the the Mormon Church .

    As it turns out, America's best and most admired president was much wealthier than Mitt Romney. That's right, George Washington would be a billionaire in today's terms. It would be inappropriate for Obama/ Biden 2012 to use wealth as any suggestion that Mitt Romney would not be an excellent president. But certainly that would not stop them.

    Good fact reporting, CNN. Only a $179 million gap in your estimate. LMFAO! Oh, and last time I checked, it's not illegal for a presidential candidate to be rich. Of course the jealous posts here will continue to bash Romney because he is a successful businessman.

    We want to know about the Blind Trust investments that were just sold. The American people need to know if they were foreign investments against our interests. CNN can you find out?

    Between $84 and $256 million??? With that large of a spread, how much is still unknown and kept secret about this guy? Romney still has not disclosed the tax information that all of the other republican candidates demanded he disclose. How come they have all become silent now? Funny how money in their pockets can shut them up!

    Now if he could only get people to like him,with a personality like the man on the wedding cake its going to be hard to get excited about Romney even after making a career out of running for office of some sort. Poor little rich kid cant buy the popular vote.

    Ill-gotten gains, at the expense of American companies and jobs. I don't mind success – in fact, I especially admire Warren Buffet, who still lives in a 2500-square-foot house and made his billions by investing in companies that he had researched and concluded would be good investments.

    Compare that to Mittens who has left a trail of broken companies sucked dry of their assets and deep in debt, while he and his cronies pay themselves handsome fees.

    Only a fool will vote for Mittens and the GOP in November – only a fool.
