romney the debt hypocrite

  1. But what most voters don't know is the way Mitt Romney actually made his fortune: by borrowing vast sums of money that other people were forced to pay back. This is the plain, stark reality that has somehow eluded America's top political journalists for two consecutive presidential campaigns: Mitt Romney is one of the greatest and most irresponsible debt creators of all time. In the past few decades, in fact, Romney has piled more debt onto more unsuspecting companies, written more gigantic checks that other people have to cover, than perhaps all but a handful of people on planet Earth.

    By making debt the centerpiece of his campaign, Romney was making a calculated bluff of historic dimensions – placing a massive all-in bet on the rank incompetence of the American press corps. The result has been a brilliant comedy: A man makes a $250 million fortune loading up companies with debt and then extracting million-dollar fees from those same companies, in exchange for the generous service of telling them who needs to be fired in order to finance the debt payments he saddled them with in the first place. That same man then runs for president riding an image of children roasting on flames of debt, choosing as his running mate perhaps the only politician in America more pompous and self-righteous on the subject of the evils of borrowed money than the candidate himself. If Romney pulls off this whopper, you'll have to tip your hat to him: No one in history has ever successfully run for president riding this big of a lie. It's almost enough to make you think he really is qualified for the White House.

  3. Is this some new kind of "teleprompter" argument? Posting articles that reflect your views is an academic standard as long as it is cited. However, I can understand if you would not be aware of this.
  4. No it isn't dumbass.

    That's the role of a secondary news source repeating a story ,like say huffpoo repeating an AP story verbatim without comment.

    An academic paper would at least include some original content from the author then use selective quotes to make his points and cite it in the bibliography.

    However, I can understand WHY you think it reaches ACADEMIC standards.
    I'm sure that's all that was required of you as an AFFIRMATIVE ACTION academic quota student.
  5. Looks like I shut down rcg's drivel with that one.

    It doesn't usually take much. He has an aversion to facts, truth and reality.
