    If it is indeed true that Mitt had nothing to do with Bain capital in 2001 and 2002 - that means he was paid 100k salary to do nothing.


    100k to do NOTHING?
    Sorry but that beats even the most inefficient government employee! Looks like private business can indeed be less efficient than government!

    You mean he was paid at least $100,000 to do nothing. It was actually probably more than that.

    So what we have over 500 congressmen who do nothing. That is not fair, they do things but nothing that is improving the situations.

    .

    Well, yes, of course.

    If I'm on the Board of Directors of a firm, and I've got a high-profile former CEO who can be counted on to say positive things about my firm after he leaves, he's worth at LEAST a hundred grand. Holy crap.

    Is this a trick question?

    They've shown up to session and debated and passed or failed to pass legislation. That's their job, isn't it?

    Michelle Obama had TWO $100k jobs for doing nothing given to her as soon as her husband was elected Senator....no paybacks there I am sure - right?

    So Romney can get paid 100k to do absolutely nothing.

    But Obama shouldn't even get paid vacations.


    Is that the standard you're using?
