Romney's Business Plan: Sell Us for Parts

Posted: 05/16/2012 1:51 pm

Either Romney doesn't understand the words coming out of his mouth, he's just pretending not to understand the words coming out of his mouth, or he's the worst businessman ever. It's hard to believe it's the latter. You'd think someone whose entire wealth, his $22 million a year, $60,000 a day, $2,500 per hour every hour of the day every day of the week, stems from having borrowed tens of millions of dollars from banks. Few humans in the history of this planet have loaded up companies with as much debt as has the current GOP presidential nominee.

Even for a preternaturally slick politician like Romney, his deficit speech yesterday was the height of chutzpah.

Romney knows as much about deficit reduction or job creation as he does about the sale rack at Kohl's.

GM was the great test Romney failed. His telling GM to drop dead proved he's a businessman with absolutely no idea whatsoever of how to actually keep or create jobs.

Hate to break it to you, sir, but unlike the dozens of companies you loaded with debt for personal gain, you can't just turn around and sell the United States for parts.

Every time he mentions his "business" experience he must be reminded that his business experience consists of crippling debts and joblessness.

We've had plenty enough of that already.
