Exclusive: Adelson's Pro-Romney Donations Will Be "Limitless," Could Top $100M

Jun 14, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.forbes.com

Forbes has confirmed that billionaire Sheldon Adelson , along with his wife Miriam, has donated $10 million to the leading Super PAC supporting presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney-and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Adelson, who has built Las Vegas Sands into an global casino empire, will do “whatever it takes”...

Adelson already spent $35 million in contributions. I wonder how many jobs he could have created with that money. I wonder how many more jobs he could have created when he reaches that $100 mil.

As we speak, he is proving that the "job creator" theory is a myth. I mean, he IS a "job creator" ... according to Mitt and friends.

Should I?

If Soros is another "job creator", that'll only further prove my point, debunking the Republican myth that America's "job creators" are being held back from creating all the jobs.

I think you're missing the point. It's not about Adelson or Soros ... it's about the lies of the anti-working-class policies called trickle-down economics.

Here's a solution. Develop the next billion dollar web site then create jobs, or give it away. It will be your choice.
Folks that make big bucks are under no obligation to spend it in ways that make the less productive happy. I'm not envious of Soros. I don't like him, but I don't envy him either. Many of the uber rich, like Steve Jobs and Bill Walton were just regular guys who worked hard and made it big.
If they give it all away, God bless 'em. If they don't, they don't, and if they have it put in bearer's bonds and have it cremated with them, God bless 'em anyway.

BTW, Soros has been called many things, but never a job creator, unless of course you count his personal spin machine, media matters.

A solution? What is that a solution to?

"Folks that make big bucks are under no obligation to spend it in ways that make the less productive happy." ...??? How is this relevant? Who said anything about giving it all away? It seems you're still missing the point. Here it is.

The Republican argument is that the "job creators" can't create all the jobs because of taxes, regulations, blah, blah, blah.

So let me ask you these two questions:

1. Could Adelson have created jobs with $35 million?(yes or no)

2. If Adelson could have created jobs with that money, why didn't he?

P.S. Soros Fund Managment LLC employs 160 people. So, I guess that does make old George a job creator.

This is terrible news for our democratic Republic. Imagine.... "as much as it takes..."
It doesn't matter now. Obama sold us all out to the illegals and the anarchists who love them. It is beginning to seem that America will never survive The Obama.

He doesn't have to create jobs, though he's has created tens of thousands worldwide. He gets to do whatever he wants with his money. I would suggest those sanctimonious souls who insist on telling others how to spend their money, take their energy, build an empire, and then begin communities of full employment making whatever widgit they choose. Envy is so demeaning, and so transparent.

adelson is a typical rethug sociopath who has no problem stealing via his casinos but when it comes to helping his fellow Americans it somehow becomes 'socialism.' He also supports the terrorist state of israel and believes the us should support them militarily. He is typical right wing scum!

This is good. When Jewish mob money is thrown into the arena of American politics,it is always a good thing. Mitt Romney will do the bidding of Adelson and his interests. It's good to be king. Government for only the rich!!

Vote for Mitt Romney.
