In Romney’s World There Are Many Mansions

January 14, 2012

Willard Mitt Romney extols the virtues of achieving success by hard work, education and ambition. That’s quite hypocritical since he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and into an exclusive club that’s closed to you and me. His father was George Romney – the son of polygamous Mormons, born in Mexico, CEO of American Motors Corporation, 43rd governor of Michigan, and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Mitt Romney was never like you and me. His estimated net worth is $250-Million, but he has, so far, refused to reveal his tax returns. How can Mitt Romney, who never had to struggle, possibly have any idea how the other 99% live?

In 2009 Mitt and his wife Ann sold their 6,400-square-foot colonial house in Belmont, Mass. for $3.5 million and their 9,500-square-foot ski lodge in Deer Valley, Utah for $5.25 million. Currently, his official primary residence is an $895,000 luxury townhome outside of Boston, but he also owns a seven-bedroom, $10 million vacation home on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, N.H. That house by itself is like a castle, but the accompanying stablehouse (worth $3.4 million) and the enormous boathouse each by themselves would make a respectable dwelling for any run-of-the-mill millionaire.

The Romneys never know when too much is enough. They also own a 3,009-square-foot beachfront house in La Jolla, California worth $12-Million. But wait! That house is too small, so Mitt wants to bulldoze that one and replace it with a new 11,062-square-foot home that will be big enough to also house his five married deadbeat sons and their sixteen children.

Taking advantage of his millionaire pedigree and his country-club connections, Romney fell into a career as a “vulture capitalist” where he preyed on the less fortunate to amass an even greater fortune. Now he wants to move into America’s mansion where he will further empower and enrich fellow vulture capitalists to the exclusion of ordinary, hard-working Americans. For the life of me, I can’t understand why republican voters are propelling him toward their party’s nomination.

    I’m not against anyone having a lot of money as long as they earned it. Obviously he hasn’t. He has never worked a “real” job. There is no way that he deserves to be President of the United States of America. I would like to repost this on my site if you don’t mind.

    I don’t begrudge his having millions. Don’t even care how he got those millions. But I would like some evidence that he is a good steward of those $$$ and that he uses them for the benefit of our planet and those who inhabit it.

      Your first two sentences sound like something a republitard crapitalist would say, but I suppose we need millionaires so the rest of us can guage how poor we really are. If you were a Mormon or a builder of luxury homes, you would feel like Romney used his bucks to benefit the planet and its inhabitants. Otherwise, nyet! The fact remains that he was born into money and continues to roll in it. He hasn’t worked for his money. His money works for him. How does this qualify him to be President? He would only be the president of the top 1% because he hasn’t a clue how the rest of us live.

        Whoa! Holster your guns, partner! All I said was that I don’t care much money he’s got or how he got it. Neither do I care how much money YOU have or how YOU got it. Romney’s having mega $$$ doesn’t make him a sorry excuse for US President . . . his politics do! You call me a republitard crapitalist once more and I’ll come down there and wash your mouth out with lye soap! [But this one time I’ll forgive you. 🙂 ]

          Simmer down there, cowgirl! I was merely stating that I’ve heard your comments made by republitards as well. I wasn’t attacking your character or political leaning. I don’t have any money, so whether you care about how I got mine is moot. You’re right that being a millionaire doesn’t automatically make you a sorry excuse for a president. All presidents have been millionaires and we’ve had a few decent ones. I forgive you too.

        Kennedy was born into a wealthy family. He was president.
        All I’m hearing is people being jealous!

    It’s to bad you feel that way. He has proven time and time again how to run a business. He knows more about work ethic than you do my good man. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!!!! As far as people like Obama who has only done nothing but put the rest of our country down the toilet, well the facts speak for themselfs. I have no problem with how Romney made his millions. So what he is smarter than the rest of us in knowing how to make money work for him. Why should he have to be a slave to money. If you were in the same boat and had the same knowlege as he seems to you would have made the same decisions. We need someone who knows how to make money work for the country. As far as saying he took advantage of the less fortunate, you are so far from the truth. But maybe truth is not what you are looking for.

      You’re obviously a republican and, as such, you swallow the party lies – hook, line and sinker. It’s ALL Obama’s fault. It couldn’t possibly be the obstructionist republicans and tea-baggers in Congress who flushed the country down the toilet by blocking EVERY good thing Obama has tried to do.

      You don’t know me or anything about my work ethic. It takes money to make money. Romney was born into money and I wasn’t. If I had been, maybe I’d be as filthy-rich as Romney, but that alone wouldn’t qualify me to be president. Unlike Romney, I would have used my riches for something other than fattening my own bank account. I would have tried to develop aternate energy sources, manufactured the resulting products IN AMERICA, and created jobs for the suffering victims of greedy capitalists like Romney. What has he done to improve America or save the world? If it’s truth you want, you won’t find it in the republican propaganda. Do some research and open your mind.

      All Romney knows about business is how to buy them. Syphon out the assets, lay off the employees, gut the pension funds, ship his profits off shore then sell the company as scrap.
      Romney’s work ethic is putting people out of work by the thousands. Then call them lazy for not working.

        Tyler – I can tell by your comment that you are an intelligent lifeform. Keep trying to get the truth out to the masses before November.

      Strandedalien has your number. Romney is a follower, not a leader. He is a coward who pathologically lies and attacks his opponents, believing the transient paradigms fed to him by his strategists who are paid to help stroke his ego to prove his self worth. He is only in business for himself, and those stroking him.

        Thank you. You are a rare bird – an informed voter. It’s so easy to see through Romney’s thin veneer, but half of Americans can’t.
