Is inherited or married wealth more respectable than earned wealth? The leftist/democrats apparently think so. Their candidate in 2004, John Kerry, was wealthy. He inherited some and married more but democrats never mentioned his wealth. Of course they have believed in a ruling class for years, much like the noble/serf system in Czarist Russia! BOSTON — Rosemary Forbes Kerry left many things to her son John: a flinty New England resolve, a worldly view of politics, and a middle name that conjures up images of a childhood drenched in wealth. The Democratic presidential candidate grew up in a world of elite private schools and vacations on a French estate, something most Americans could only dream about. His parents, a U.S. diplomat and a homemaker, turned to a wealthy, childless great-aunt, Clara Winthrop, to help pay the bills. Before he married Teresa Heinz, the heir to the food empire, Kerry had little more than his annual Senate salary of $133,600 and a trust fund valued at $50,000 to $100,000. When his mother died in 2002, he inherited trusts with $300,000 to $1.5 million in assets — a pittance compared to his wife’s estimated $500 million. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4685276/ns/politics/t/john-kerry-cheap-aristocrat/#.UCFFxN2JGRg Contrast the treatment of the press and democrats of Kerry with their treatment of Romney who started a company and earned his wealth!
