Housing Project Mom and Mitt Romney's Mom Look Alike

Not long after Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was caught on tape saying that 47% of Americans felt they had a right to entitlement programs and therefore he didn't care about them, a 1962 television interview of his mom surfaced, in which she admitted his dad had been on welfare.  When I saw the television interview for the first time, I almost fell over.

Oh, my gosh!  She looks like my mom, only wealthy!  Take away the pearls, designer clothes and all her money and anyone would be hard pressed to tell the difference.between Mrs. Eileen Reeves from Liddonfield Housing Project and Mitt Romney's mom.
