Friday Night Not So Funny: US Election


"A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being "likable" or that he
doesn't "relate well" to people.  Frankly, we struggled to understand why. 
So after much research, we have come up with a Top Ten List to explain this "unlikablility."

Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:

1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura.
Looks like every central casting's #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.

2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her,
including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)

4. Can't speak in a fake, southern, "black preacher voice" when necessary.

5. Highly intelligent.  Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and
Harvard Business School...and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

6. Doesn't smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter
-culture age when he went to college.  Too square for today's America?
7. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church,
didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

8. Has a family of five great sons....and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab.
But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that "choice" deserves America's scorn.

9. Oh yes.....he's a MORMON.  We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that
teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

10. And one more point.....pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans.
I guess that's because he made that money opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad.

Apparently, he didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money
made you unrelatable to Americans.  My goodness, it's a strange world, isn't it?
Personal Information:

His full Name is: Willard Mitt Romney
He was Born: March 12, 1947 and is 65 years old.
His Father: George W. Romney, former Governor of the State of Michigan
He was raised in Bloomfield Hills , Michigan
He is Married to Ann Romney since 1969; they have five children.

B. A. from Brigham Young University, J. D. and M.B.A. from Harvard University

Mormon - The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints

Working Background:
After high school, he spent 30 months in France as a Mormon missionary.
After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously,
he passed the Michigan bar exam, but never worked as an attorney.
In 1984, he co-founded Bain Capital a private equity investment firm,
one of the largest such firms in the United States.

In 1994, he ran for Senator of Massachusetts and lost to Ted Kennedy.

He was President and CEO of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

In 2002, he was elected Governor of the State of Massachusetts where he eliminated a 1.5 billion deficit.
Some Interesting Facts about Romney:

Bain Capital, starting with one small office supply store in Massachusetts,
turned it into Staples; now over 2,000 stores employing 90,000 people.
Bain Capital also worked to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again,
with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King,
Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply and many others.

He was an unpaid volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

He was an unpaid intern in his dad's governor's office for eight years.

He was an unpaid bishop and state president of his church for ten years.

He was an unpaid President of the Salt Lake Olympic Committee for three years.

He took no salary and was the unpaid Governor of Massachusetts for four years.
He gave his entire inheritance from his father to charity.

Mitt Romney is one of the wealthiest self-made men in our country but has given more
back to its citizens in terms of money, service and time than most men.

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income....

Just for comparison purposes, Obama gave 1% and Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%.
Mitt Romney is Trustworthy:

He will show us his high school and college transcripts.

He will show us his social security card.

He will show us his law degree.

He will show us his draft notice.

He will show us his medical records.

Mitt Romney's background, experience and trustworthiness show him to be
a great leader and an excellent citizen for President of the United States.
You may think that Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans
could have selected.  At least I know what religion he is, and that he won't desecrate the flag,
bow down to foreign powers, or practice fiscal irresponsibility.

I know he has the ability to turn around this financial debacle that the current regime has gotten
us into.  We won't like all the things necessary to recover from this debt,
but someone with Romney's background can do it.

But, on the minus side, he never was a "Community Organizer", never took drugs or smoked pot, never got drunk, did not associate with communists or terrorists,
nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US.

Michelle Obama:

 Dear American Taxpayer,

For only the second time in my adult life, I am not ashamed of my country. I love being an American First Lady.

I want to thank the hard working American people for paying for my many trips and vacations. I have been so busy with my food policing that I was only able to take one big trip a month. My daughter Sasha, several long-time family friends, my personal staff of 75 and various guests had a wonderful time in Spain . 

Honestly, you just haven't lived until you have stayed in a private 3-story villa at a 5-Star luxury hotel, the Villa Padierna, but it only cost $95,000, and I was able to hold the total bill under $500,000. for the week. What a bargain!

Thank you also for the use of Air Force Two and the 70 Secret Service personnel who tagged along to be sure we were safe and cared for at all times.

Air Force Two (which costs $11,351 per hour to operate according to Government Accounting Office reports) only used 47,500 gallons of jet fuel for this trip and carbon emissions were a mere 1,031 tons of CO2.

That's quite a carbon footprint as my good friend Al Gore would say, so we must ask the American citizens to drive smaller, more fuel efficient cars and drive less too, so we can lessen our combined carbon footprint.

But hey, Barack’s Air Force One costs about $200,000. per hour to operate and with his many trips, he spent almost half a billion dollars on flights alone last year. Yeah, that’s with a B… $500,000,000.

By the way, if you happen to be visiting the Costa del Sol, I highly recommend the Buenaventura Plaza restaurant in Marbella ; great lobster with rice and oysters!
I'm ashamed to admit the lobsters we ate in Martha's Vineyard were not quite as tasty, but what can you do if you're not in Europe , you have to just grin and bear it.

I know times are hard and millions of you are struggling to put food on the table and trying to make ends meet. So I do appreciate your sacrifices and do hope you find work soon. I was really exhausted after Barack took our family on a luxury vacation in Maine a few weeks ago.  I just had to get away for a few days.

Michelle Obama
P.S. Thank you as well for the $2 BILLION dollar trip to India from which we just returned!

P.SS. Thank you, too, for that vacation trip to Martha's Vineyard ; it was fabulous.  And thanks for that second smaller jet that took our dog Bo to Martha's Vineyard so we and the children could have him with us while we were away from the White House for eleven days.

P.SSS. Oh, I almost forgot to say thanks also for our two-week trip to Hawaii at Christmas. That 7,000 square foot house was great!

We all had a fabulous time in Africa visiting Barack’s homeland. What a wonderful place!

Now the girls and I are back in Africa with my mom.

Don't forget my ski trip to Vail this winter.

All this while Barack golf’s and campaigns to keep my trips coming for the next 4 years!  Thanks America , but you owe it to me!

Why the US media goes crazy for Michelle's arms?
  What else can they talk about? Her hair, her big butt. her domination of Barack? Seriously, she's the first wife of a President that no one calls classy, or smart, or even caring. Her food guide to starving children is going over real big one!

Who to choose?

I would vote for the dog, BO, except he is a victim one in the Obama household really giving a shit about a dog they got for publicity stunts. 
On a lighter note:

  • Then, he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.
  • First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states ( Mexico vs Arizona ).
