I'm weary of pundits who equate wealth with success, as in Harold Henderson's "Get over Mitt's riches" (Forum, Oct. 7): "Do you want a poor man as president, or would you rather have a man who knows how to be successful?"
I prefer a poor man.
Former Gov. Mitt Romney reveals how unaware he is when he: dismisses government dependents as "victims" unwilling to "take personal responsibility"; says he was sent on his mission in France "to live … among the lower middle class"; marvels at shirts from Costco; advises young people to borrow from their parents to start a business; and was so poor in college he had to sell stock to survive. This is his "success" at understanding the human condition.
