Mitt Romney campaigned with both of these guys yesterday:
- Donald Trump: “I mean, part of the beauty of me is that I’m very rich.” 3/17/11
- Sheldon Adelson: “I don’t take comments from anybody unless they’re rich. If you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich? Now if they’re rich, then they must be smart.” 1/7/11
Unless you’re rich, you don’t count. That’s about the only thing you can take to the bank from these guys. Also, too:
Mitt Romney Wants the Biggest Military Ever, Regardless of Cost — Mitt Romney wants a bigger government, so long as its the kind with more guns and fewer social programs. “We have two courses we can follow: One is to follow in the pathway of Europe, to shrink our military smaller and smaller to pay for our social needs,” Romney told a San Diego crowd of some 5,000 on Monday outside the Veterans Memorial Center and Museum. “The other is to commit to preserve America as the strongest military in the world, second to none, with no comparable power anywhere in the world.” – Mother Jones
You can bet that Mitt does not plan to pay for his biggest, fastest, bestest, most manliest new military with more revenue, such as with higher taxes for himself and the rest of his wealthy friends. You and I and everyone else (who isn’t rich) will be paying for this awesome, Orwellian expansion of our great military (some wars end, some others need to begin!), and the continuation of tax cuts for the one percent, with austerity measures for the rest of us. But maybe it’ll be exciting, like living in a Mad Max movie.
And the dumb shites who have no more money than the rest of us will line up to vote for Romney in November because of mental disorders which they shout from the bumpers of their cars or on Facebook and Twitter or nightly on Fox “News” in a hypnotic, rapid-fire, Tourette-like manner: NOBAMA! BIRTH CONTROL! SHARIA LAW! ILLEGALS! SOCIALISM! ‘MURKIA! JESUS! GUNS! GAYS! COMMUNISM! BIRTH CERTIFICATE!
Which makes the wealthy laugh. All the way to the bank.
