It seems fairly obvious but perhaps it’s not: You can’t “become” rich if you’re already rich.

Mitt Romney: “When I was a boy, I used to think that becoming rich and becoming famous would make me happy. Boy was I right!”

I know this video was recorded in 2005, and I know that the former Governor was trying to be funny, but could someone please inform Mitt Romney that he was rich from the moment he entered this world.

His father, George Romney, was chairman and president of American Motors, Governor of Michigan, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and a Republican candidate for President of the United States.

There was no “becoming rich,” regardless of what Romney may want us to believe. There was just rich.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with being born wealthy, as long as you don’t try to pretend otherwise.
