Willard The Rat Romney- the biggest job killer of any Rethuglican candidate in history.

Still raking it in, too- 13 MILLION in retirement benefits from Bain, in addition to the 300 million he's got, his five homes, etc.

Why do the uberrich seem to think they need civil servant jobs?

Must be an insatiable ego.

After the capital gains tax of 15%, which Romney no doubt pays less than, but as a guide, after taxes, Romeny BANKS 212,500.00 PER WEEK.

Every week of the year.

Add income from his other investments, and ignoring his 300+ million in the bank, his weekly income is right around 400,000.00 bucks.

PER WEEK.

AFTER TAXES.

Christmas comes every payday for the Romneys.

As the corrupt Kenyan commie lizard and his commiecrat cronies prospered -- thanks to trillions in payoffs on the backs of Americans and their children -- American went to hell.

Corrupt cronyism run amok, courtesy of the Kenyan lizard ....

In 2009, Obama has collected quadruple Romney's donations, most of them big time bundlers, many of them investment bankers and CEOs. To escape the clause of max. individual donations of $69, Obama introduced the $35,800 dinner function.

In 2008, nearly 80 percent of those who collected more than $500,000 for Obama took “key administration posts,” as defined by the White House. More than half the ambassador nominees who were bundlers raised more than half a million.

Telecom executive Donald H. Gips raised a big bundle of cash to help finance his friend Barack Obama’s run for the presidency. Gips, a vice president of Colorado-based Level 3 Communications LLC, delivered more than $500,000 in contributions for the Obama war chest, while two fellow senior company executives collected at least $150,000 more.

After the election, Gips was put in charge of hiring in the Obama White House, helping to place loyalists and fundraisers in many key positions. Then in mid-2009, the new president named him ambassador to South Africa. Level 3 Communications, in which Gips retained stock, meanwhile received millions of dollars of government stimulus contracts for broadband projects in six states—though Gips said he was "completely unaware" of the stimulus money.

Just like other presidential aspirants, Obama relied heavily on mega-donors to propel his campaign across the finish line and many fundraisers have shared in the spoils of victory. Some took jobs in pivotal federal agencies such as the Department of Justice, Department of Energy and the Federal Communications Commission, while others have served on influential advisory commissions and boards that meet periodically to help formulate policy. Two dozen have been appointed ambassadors to foreign countries.

Hey, Romney made money. That's all that matters to the 1%. Multinational corporations are meant to make profits, huge salaries and bonuses for the CEOs. If you people in the 99% want a job, be a CEO. Stop whining. American workers are lazy, nothing EXCEPTIONAL, and their families are not as important as CEO families.

in capitalism, as in most matters in life, there are winners and losers. not everybody gets a trophy. it is not the government's role to give everyone a trophy.

Not a bit.

But I do find it strange that Rethuglicans move to their default position of worshipping the wealthy CEO who schools himself on how to game the system for personal gain, and somehow thinks it's honorable.

Crass poisonous "business" people like Romney have lived their lives and lined their pockets on the misery of others.

We call that CARPETBAGGING, something he no doubt would have done had he lived during the Civil War.

Of which we're headed into, yet again, due to these very people, and those who worship and apologize for their criminal acts.

Anyone that doesn't understand what Bain Capital and other corporate raider firms do, will believe Romney when he claims they were "creating jobs".

...more like creating wealth for Bain.
