If I was Romney. I'd be laughing all the way to the bank.He
tried helping people by using his business talents as a president, but instead,
people voted in a tax collector, and big time spender.This
wasn't greed, but ignorance of the people.
re: no fit in SG - As someone who has been a member of a large corp board and
has interacted with a fair number of boards from Fortune 500 companies I can
tell you that in my expereince you are wrong. I come from a blue collar family
of modest means. I am not wealthy in the way you describe board members. Most
of the people I worked with on those boards are self-made successes and well off
but not multi-millionaires. Some came from more meager circumstances than
myself. Most of them are very smart and very good at what they do. True, there
are some there just because of their family name, but those were in the
minority. There still exists in this country a great opportunity to create
success for yourself. Too many people have bought into the class envy concept
and fail to ever dare to acheive even of small measure of success, safe in their
belief that it can't be done because they don't have the right name,
the right heritage, the right friends. Safe in blaming fate or the gods for
their plight with no personal responsiblity for their own future.
Must beg to disagree about members of the board of directors of corporations
throughout the world.These boards are filled with individuals from
massively wealthy families. The majority of these individuals inherit their
fortunes. They may have instituted a Non-Profit Foundation. Though they
may pretend to be a great contributor to societies, the truth is, their SURNAME
provides their perks in life. Their vocations consist of being on boards of
large corporations, and, occasionally, puttering in philanthropic interests.
Why should Mitt feel obligated to help a country that didn't vote for him?
He should return to his old life. That's how the system is designed. The
reason you don't hear about other former pesidential nominess returning to
the private sector is because they were career politicians who simpy returned to
feed at the public trough. As for the 47% getting the gifts comment, board
leadership is hardly a gift. It is a lot of responsibility and it is something
typically earned by strong performance in a needed skill set. I suppose that
even if the poorest family were making over $100,000 a year there would still be
an outcry of injustice and inequality because of those making over $1,000,000.
Wealth distribution was tried in the old Soviet Union and it was a fantastic
failure. Unfortunately, most of the Occupy types whining about wanting to get
their hands on other people's money weren't alive or were too young to
remember what that looked like. One final note - Americans will have buyers
remorse by this time next year once the economic effects of Obamacare are fully
felt. A train wreck in the making.
Wow! The liberals are jealous of Mitts success.Aren't:* Nancy Pelosi* Harry Reid* Barack Obama* Ed Asner* Lady GaGaAll wealthy people too?
While the Left covetously complains about Romney, and bitterly
complains about Bush's working vacations to camp david or working vacation
to his ranch,We have Obama and the the democrats making deals in
congress that benefiting family members and friend to millions and even billions
of dollars,We have Obama taking lavish vacation around the world to
ritzy places like Marth'a Vinyard and like the current 4 MILLION dollar
vacation to hawaii,In the last year the Obama royal family has had
approximately 1.5 billion dollars spent on them, compare that to British royal
family which has had only about 57 million spent on them.The
obama's and the democrats are living high on the hog on the people's
money, while poor continue to suffer. While Obama speaks empty words to the
middle class. While the left silly complaints about the rich on the right.
Until those on the right decide to focus on real issues as opposed to such
manufactured issues as Obama's vacation costs, the GOP will continue to be
the party of the low information voter.I am confident that you have
not attempted to compare presidential vacation expenditures. Get a
grip. It is embarrassing.
how much is barry's three week hawaiian vacation costing the taxpayers?
libs continue to remain clueless and bitter. i hope mitt continues to enjoy life
while libs continue to be bitter about success.
I knew it - that darn Romney is still involved in capitalism. Yes sir people
were right - Mitt is a capitalist after all!!! I suppose Marriott is just trying
to increase their revenues and grow as a company by hiring Mitt. How dare they
try to be more successful especially in Obama's America!!! Next thing you
know Marriott will be hiring more people! Geez - isn't it time for a
government take over of the hotel business!!! Rise up liberals - someone is
trying to be successful!!!! Time to at least raise their taxes!!
Why can:* Nancy Pelosi* Harry Reid* Barack Obama*
Ted Kennedyall be wealthy, but Mitt Romney is greedy?
About fifteen cents from every American. What a small price for honoring our
president with an all expense, paid, and tax free vacation to Hawaii. This is
about three times more then greedy Mitt Romney's yearly earnings.
no fit is SG - Unlike yourself, Mitt Romney is moving on with his
So many golden opportunities for Mr. Romney!Named after J. Willard
Marriott, who was Mitt's father's good friend. A lovely job whenever
Mitt wishes.If only some of the "47%" were offered such gifts.
Mitt is back among the people he is most comfortable with..May he just stay
His campaign was using the Marriott, and not Days Inn or even Motel 6?
