Mitt Romney Needs To Apologize To Every American

Last edited Mon Oct 6, 2014, 10:20 AM - Edit history (2)

Reagan may have set the stage, but greedy, vulture capitalists like Mitt Romney swung the clubs that beat the heads of Middle Class Americans bloody. Below is a snip from my 2012 John Mitchel Bureau County Illinois Democratic Dinner speech:

-snip- Jim Sinegal, co-founder of Costco says, “… we need companies that plant and grow, not executives that reap and run.” While men like John Mitchel and my grandfather’s built this nation one shovel full at a time, Romney has made his millions tearing companies apart and outsourcing our jobs to China.

Romney loves America. He does! He loves America, the way a tick loves a dog! Middle Class America can’t stand any more love’n like that!

Mitt Romney, the son of power and privilege, was born on third base, thinking he hit a home run. His vision of America is a sugar coated, Ayn Rand, survival of the fittest philosophy of “I got mine, the hell with you 47% ‘ers.”

Romney is fond of singing and reciting verses of the 1893 poem “Pikes Peak,” written by Kathy Lee Bates, that is today known as “America the Beautiful.” There are two lines from that poem however that he never recites, he never sings.

Till selfish gains no longer stain,
The banner of the free!


I can’t help but believe that Mrs. Bates took inspiration for those lines from the example of Jesus throwing the money changers out of the Temple. Romney avoids those two lines because they are a damning indictment of his life and his vision of America. Mitt Romney is a modern day money changer looting the temple of Democracy.
-end of snip-

Romney is not the answer. He and blood suckers like Bruce Rauner, and the Koch bros. are the problem.

2. I like the Goodfellas analogy applied to Romney. They showed the same exact scam over a couple

Sopranos episodes too. A guy gets in too deep with Tony gambling but he had a nice sporting goods store going so they "busted him out". The take over and order in anything they can sell off at a huge discount to rake in cash. They don't care if they lose money on the deals. They are running up bills and using up every dime of credit the guys business can get. They don't plan on paying the bills anyway so it doesn't matter. All that matters is Tony gets paid.

One thing they bought was a shitload of coolers. Then they had some immigrant guys out selling them on the street. If I ran across a deal where a guy was offering me a nice big cooler for five bucks, I wouldn't ask any questions. I'm an avid fisherman and camper. I can always use another one. Hell yes!

It's exactly what scumbags like Robme do when they take over. Raid the pension plans, take out massive loans, give themselves huge bonuses with the cash, then declare bankruptcy and leave everyone else screwed. Employees, creditors and us taxpayers.

I've always wondered why the Republicans never go after The Pension Benefit Guaruntee Corporation. Maybe those kind of scams and all their outsourcing are part of the reason. It's not funded by tax dollars but is operated by the government. You'd think they would find something wrong with it. If people that were screwed by these vulture capitalists were losing all of their pensions on those deals, maybe we'd get something done to stop them?

11. Dr. Melfi hung in there for 4 years with Tony. She would have booted

Rmoney after one session as she could not treat a total sociopath.

13. I wish there was a way to give your post a thousand K & R's, brewens.

Your analogy is spot on!

14. Or at very least that his duty to God is to put himself in position in case he is the one. I sort

of doubt he imagines he could be less than an important official in the new Mormon government he completely believes will govern God's kingdom on earth. His peculiar total, visible shock reported by several people on losing the the last election was only one of a bunch of peculiarities that would be explained by his believing God was readying the U.S. for a leading role in the fight against Satan. Even his own campaign leadership was unclear about his positions. In any case, I expected then that he'd be stepping forward to fulfill his duty to God once again in 2016.

You know, it might be the right of free people to run for president with religious agendas that happen to be seditious, but the media acted as if discussing religious agendas would be intolerably bad manners, even with a true believer serving a church that fully expected to replace our republic with itself headed for the Oval Office. THEY owe the nation, and the planet for that matter, a giant apology.

6. Very good but,

may I respectfully make one correction, especially as it is playoff season..>

"Mitt Romney, the son of power and privilege, was born on third base, thinking he hit a home run."

If you end up on third base, you have hit a triple.

8. Humm, Well, I guess you have a point there.

Maybe he even ran the wrong way and....it was just a single. Or better yet...and more likely, .it was just a ground out

15. Maybe it means he didn't hit anything at all (and someone else's hit would bring him home too)? :)

12. Like the way the NRA erased the words "in a well regulated militia" from their quote of the

Constitutional "right to bear arms" section.

Even removed it from the stone edifice of their HQ.

Cons can so easily be conned by other cons. It is a consent cycle of abuse relationship.
