Romney’s Money Problem

Given that his kids have a $100m trust fund, you would have thought Mitt Romney would have taken a little more care in organising this photo op.

UPDATE:  It is a Photoshop.

      If he has a money problem then he could ask the British Labour Party for advice. Experts like Dedward Miliband and Ed Balls would be ideal!

      the point of this pic is that he either mispelled his own name or made yet another tone deaf gaffe which can be used against him

      either way he’s an idiot

          CYNICAL OLD MAN says:

          Don’t like Romney. There’s something of the “Tony Blair” about him – saying things to suit whichever audience he’s addressing. That constant smile is also Blairite. He’s too smooth and prefers underlings to do his dirty work for him so he can use plausible deniability in order to distance himself from their work.. My grandad always used to tell me “Never trust a smiler.” It was certainly good advice in Blair’s case.

          The fact that he lost out to John McCain a the last election must have Obummer beaming in satisfaction. Romney is Obama’s best chance for re-election.

    Given that many rich people in the US consider themselves “Liberals”, very strangley, perhaps his kids have decided they are Democrats! After all, with that type of trust fund, they won’t ever have to work for a living, so perfect cloud-cuckoo land Liberal candidates.

      This needs attention says:

      CNN, in the shape of lefty twit Wolf Blitzer, were covering Ron’s speech this morning as he was chastising the Federal Reserve and describing the shenanigans they get up to behind the scenes with the US Dollar.

      He was getting great applause from the audience too. But as soon as he said “it is essential we get control of our currency back….”, the producer immediately switched away to something totally trivial.

      CNN and BBC – blood brothers in disinformation.

Lord Glasman tells it like it is:

“The first thing is to acknowledge that Labour has been captured by a kind of aggressive public sector morality which is concerned with the individual and the collective but doesn’t understand relationships.”
