    Just gotta love the hypocrisy of the rich and the republican candidate for president.


    That’s the way Mitt Romney, back in 1994, described putting one’s assets in a so-called blind trust. But it’s 2012, and the ruse looks pretty serviceable.

    Never mind that Mitt Romney has an estimated net worth as high as $250 million, or that some of it has been invested in offshore accounts of a sort never held by any previous presidential contender. He assures us that his assets are held in a “blind trust” over which he exerts no control.

    Do you have a 401K or do you sponge off of the public dollar for your retirement?

    Not like rich democrat wankers, like Jay Rockefeller, Debbie Blabberman Schutlz, Dianne Frankenstein and Herb Kohl, don't have blind trusts and offshore bank accounts.

    Nope...:rolleyes:

    Clearly all of you missed the point. Romney like Obama have changed their views on things. There is nothing wrong with changing ones mind.
    I don't care about his money nor his retirement. That is his story to play out.
    I gave up on being a materialistic maniac years ago. I have all I need now and I enjoy others getiing theirs, it makes us happy. I do not need or want luxury yatchs, mansions, or people to work for me doing what I enjoy doing, living.
    There is splenty in the world for all, but not when few people horde or are content having more than they need and making others go without.

    Something Jesus taught me years ago.

    Congratulations you have discovered political hypocrisy you know like when Obama talked about televising the healthcare negotiations on c-span for transparency which never happened.
