New Names For Romney: Calamity Bain & Willard Wonka

Recommended Posts

GREED & DEBT: THE TRUE STORY OF CALAMITY BAIN!

 

Matt Taibbi

 

How the GOP presidential candidate and his private equity firm staged an epic wealth grab, destroyed jobs – and stuck others with the bill

 

Four years ago, the Mitt Romneys of the world nearly destroyed the global economy with their greed, shortsightedness and – most notably – wildly irresponsible use of debt in pursuit of personal profit. The sight was so disgusting that people everywhere were ready to drop an H-bomb on Lower Manhattan and bayonet the survivors. But today that same insane greed ethos, that same belief in the lunatic pursuit of instant borrowed millions – it's dusted itself off, it's had a shave and a shoeshine, and it's back out there running for president.

"But what most voters don't know is the way Mitt Romney actually made his fortune: by borrowing vast sums of money that other people were forced to pay back. This is the plain, stark reality that has somehow eluded America's top political journalists for two consecutive presidential campaigns: Mitt Romney is one of the greatest and most irresponsible debt creators of all time. In the past few decades, in fact, Romney has piled more debt onto more unsuspecting companies, written more gigantic checks that other people have to cover, than perhaps all but a handful of people on planet Earth."

 

"By making debt the centerpiece of his campaign, Romney was making a calculated bluff of historic dimensions - placing a massive all-in bet on the rank incompetence of the American press corps. The result has been a brilliant comedy: A man makes a $250 million fortune loading up companies with debt and then extracting million-dollar fees from those same companies, in exchange for the generous service of telling them who needs to be fired in order to finance the debt payments he saddled them with in the first place..."

 

"If Romney pulls off this whopper, you'll have to tip your hat to him: No one in history has ever successfully run for president riding this big of a lie. It's almost enough to make you think he really is qualified for the White House."

Noonan: Romney campaign is a "ROLLING CALAMITY"

 

September 21, 2012

Stephanie Condon

 

Peggy Noonan, the Wall Street Journal columnist and former speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan, hasn't been shy about voicing her concerns about Mitt Romney's campaign, but in a Friday column she stepped up her critique.

 

"The Romney campaign has to get turned around," she wrote. "This week I called it incompetent, but only because I was being polite. I really meant 'rolling calamity.'"

 

Noonan is one of several conservative pundits who in recent weeks have spoken out about the Romney campaign's perceived missteps, such as its response to the crisis in Libya and the lack of policy details put forth.

ROMNEY IS GETTING BEAT UP SO BAD BY HIS OWN PARTY TIL I ALMOST FEEL SORRY FOR HIM, BUT NOT ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR HIM.

HE HAS A BAD CASE OF HOOF AND MOUTH DISEASE.

If I was a Republican who was running for anything I'd distance myself so far away from Mitt right now. The man/robot can't go a day without sticking his foot in his mouth. I hope for his sake his $10,000 shoes taste delicious!

 

By the way, if I'm ever a Republican please shoot me. Thanks

Please stop posting in all-caps. It is very difficult to read--and it is considered 'shouting' when you're posting online.
