Holy Crap Romney

$42 million in two years, really? I’ll admit that he must be a good businessman, but along those lines, it’s pretty hard to do well in business without screwing people over. I don’t think someone who is supposedly worth half a billion dollars can relate to the needs of the American public. When you have that much money, your only worries in life is how to keep your money and make more, he cannot relate to our daily problems and I doubt he cares. Here’s the article the NY Times ran this morning about his released tax documents

The other thing that concerns me is the top contributors to his campaign.Pulled from http://www.opensecrets.org/pres12/contrib.php?id=N00000286 You’ll notice that most of them are banks. Compared to Ron Paul’s top ten, it looks pretty bad. (Ron Paul’s top ten are Army, Air Force, Navy, Mason Capital Management, Microsoft, Boeing, Google, Overland Sheepskin, IBM, US Govt, Dunn Capital Management, Corriente Advisors, Greenstreet Co, Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Intel, US dept of Defense, United Technologies, Federal Express Corp and Entergy Corp)

Goldman Sachs $367,200

Morgan Stanley $199,800
HIG Capital $186,500
Barclays $157,750
Kirkland & Ellis $132,100
Bank of America $126,500

JPMorgan Chase & Co $112,250
The Villages $97,500
