While campaigning in Iowa today – a state he was supposedly writing off – Mitt (Flopsy Mopsy) Romney took the opportunity – according to the Associated Press (AP) – to criticize President Obama for not doing more to help the struggling economy, targeting the president’s planned trip next week to meet with small business owners and workers in three states.
Of the President’s trip Flopsy said, “I sure as heck wouldn’t be on a bus tour if I were president.”
Followed up with, “Wouldn’t it be nice if people in Washington spent a good part of their career working in a real economy?”
One can only assume that Mopsy, whose estimated net worth is somewhere in the neighborhood of $430 million was trying to be folksy?
The son of a millionaire politician who went to a private prep school while growing up in the exclusively affluent Bloomfield Hills suburbs – which consistently ranks as one of the top five wealthiest cities in the United States – is trying to come across as someone who spent a good part of his career working in a real economy?
Flopsy made his millions – besides what he inherited – by buying companies, chopping them up, and selling off the dismembered parts to the highest bidder, literally putting thousands of people out of work over the years. What part of his “career” was ever spent in the “real economy”?
Later Flopsy told reporters, “For those people who think the economy is what really is essential in providing a brighter future for our families and preserving our values, then I think they are going to look to me as someone who can understand how the economy works and can get it back on track.”
No, Mopsy is the guy who will chop up the American economy and sell it off to the highest bidder, probably to some country in Asia, while pocketing “campaign contributions” from his wealthy buddies. His only dealing with the American economy has been eating his morning cereal out of bone china bowls on silver spoons.
“Mittens” is not the real deal; he’s the Herb Tarlek of the GOTP trying to sell a bill of goods to the American people. He’s a phony. He runs away from his health care plan; he runs away from his faith; and then he tries to portray himself as just another Joe. He’s the used car salesman trailing you through the car lot like the shark from Jaws.
