Newsflash: Mitt Romney Is Rich!

Mitt Romney inadvertently revealed that he is rich enough to lay $10,000 on a wager. This was evidently news to many reporters.

We know he's rich. Get over it. More importantly, he was right.

I don't know -- if I were ruling, I would have to agree with Rick Perry: A key line was deleted between the Hardcover and Softcover versions.

But that wasn't Perry's only claim. His choppy grammar is hard to parse, but he claims that Romney's first edition said Massachusetts should be a model for the rest of the country and second edition did not.

That's a claim not borne out by the data.

Romney heavily edited that chapter specifically to address the new national healthcare law; some opponents make it sound like Romney was sneakily changing a few words.

More to the point, the media isn't all over him for being wrong - most accounts don't even mention the merits of the case - but for saying something which was impolite due to the pair's wealth inequality.
