Cue The Violins - The Millionaire Vulture Capitalist Had His Worst Week Ever
At a Jackson, Mississippi, fundraising event last night, WIllard Mitt Romney spoke to 300 campaign donors who paid $2,500, $10,000 or $50,000 to hear his speech.
Romney acknowledged that the GOP is “the party of people who want to get rich...We also want to make sure people don't have to become poor. And we know what it takes to keep people from becoming poor."
That’s good to know. The 49.1 million Americans who are currently living at or below the poverty level, if you have dreams of getting rich - Romney says the Republicans are for you!
He said the GOP knows how to keep people from becoming poor - but neglected to mention those who are already poor.
It’s public knowledge that he will take health care away by repealing Obamacare, and that he wants to eliminate entitlements like Food Stamps, and reduce Medicare/Medicaid, and Social Security - and effectively eliminate any safety nets that currently exist.
We can speculate that he’s telling the working poor that they are shit out of luck, because that’s what he’s doing. It’s like Seinfeld’s soup nazi character - “No soup for you!”
The political magazine The Week claims that WIllard Mitt Romney has had the “worst week ever.” Paul Brandus speculates that “Bain discrepancies, tax questions, NAACP booing, hanging with the Bushies — it seems like nothing is going right for the GOP presidential standard bearer.”
I thought the chorus of NAACP booing was weeks ago, when it was just last week. How could I forget?
I must have confused the noise from last week with the booing I heard weeks ago, which was the outcry from Swiss bankers, who lost his business and millions of dollars, when he closed the account (because it didn’t look good to voters.)
But don’t fret for Willard Mitt Romney, he still has his offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda. And he has his top secret IRS tax returns buried in his backyard, so that we can speculate about when he really left Bain Capital, and wonder if he paid any taxes in accordance with the law.
Romney is the gift that just keeps on giving.
