The Cult Of A Romney MBA Presidency Is Not Acceptable.

luvguins 2012/05/26 20:24:09
From the GOP who has alienated every bloc of voters they could find except perhaps white men over 50 and their obedient Stepford wives comes the flawed etch-a sketch and promoted candidate they have hung their hats on. Even many Republicans are not happy with him, but won't admit it, and 24% polled have also said they would not vote for a Mormon. The caveat that anything is better than Obama is not going to work because.........

Romney is the Second More Disastrous Coming of George W. Bush

By Rmuse:

One of the detrimental effects of America’s higher education system churning out an over-abundance of MBAs is the equally over-abundance of so-called economic experts. However, corporate malfeasance, greed, tax avoidance, and outsourcing American jobs for higher profits does not make one an economic expert; it just means they will take any steps necessary to increase their bottom line. America suffered through eight years of an MBA president and his policies created the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, and as the economy makes a slow, but steady, recovery, another MBA is hoping to become the next Republican to preside over another Great Recession and more likely, a Great Depression. The latest MBA seeking to ruin America’s economy is Willard Romney and his promise to exceed Bush’s economic expertise sends a clear message that just because he holds an MBA, it does not qualify him to be president.

After a report out yesterday from the Labor Department that the nation’s employers produced a net gain of 115,000 jobs in April and the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1 percent, Romney attributed the recovery to President Obama’s failed economic policies. In a letter ahead of the President’s visit to Ohio, Romney said, “Mr. President, forgive me for being blunt, but when it comes to economic affairs, you’re out of your depth. I’ve learned a thing or two about how government policies can kill private investment and stifle job creation and I have a plan to get government out of the way.” Romney does have a plan, but it is George W. Bush’s economic policies that created the loss of jobs and nearly destroyed the nation’s economy.

Romney’s economic plan is a repeat of Bush’s MBA economic mastery that gave over $4 trillion in tax cuts to the wealthy and deregulated the financial sector paving the way for the economic crash heard round the world. Willard promises to give $6.5 to $6.7 trillion in tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations and repeal the Democrat’s financial reform law so Wall Street and corporate banks can repeat the practices that created the Great Recession. Romney asked the President, “Where are the jobs,” and said the President’s “policies have failed.” Willard claims the economy would be creating 500,000 jobs each month if his policies of heaping more tax breaks on the wealthy and giving the financial sector free-rein were implemented and besides being absurd, it is an insult to Americans to assert that returning to Bush’s economic policies would have any different effect now, than they did four years ago. Romney also said “undoing the damage you’ve done will be a daunting challenge” and that “I’ve learned a thing or two about how government policies can kill private investment and stifle job creation and I have a plan to get government out of the way.” Here’s Willard’s problem; Americans have lived through his plan for eight long years, and using his self-professed business acumen will not produce different results than the last MBA president.

In March, former Florida governor and brother to George W. Bush endorsed Romney for president because he reminds him of his MBA brother. If nothing else, Jeb Bush recognizes that Willard will recreate an economic disaster like George presided over and that President Obama has cleaned up with sound economic principles that do not have their basis in more tax cuts for the rich and deregulation. In fact, President Obama created more jobs in three years than Bush did in eight, and the economy is growing despite the obstruction and massive layoffs in Republican-controlled states. Some of the better news recently is that Chrysler Group is forgoing its seasonal maintenance shutdown in order to keep up with the booming demand for their products, and if Romney had his way, Chrysler would be bankrupt and millions more jobs would have been lost. The announcement came after Chrysler’s best month in four years and a 20% surge in sales in April compared to a year ago. The first quarter of 2012 produced the company’s best profit since 1998 and it is due to President Obama’s bailout that Romney decried as a waste of taxpayer dollars and predicted that there would be no American automobile industry if Chrysler received a bailout. So much for Willard’s economic expertise.

America does not need another MBA in the White House whose only interest is creating wealth for investors or jobs in China, Mexico, and South Korea. Romney continues trumpeting his success while he headed Bain Capital, but he never boasts the jobs he eliminated or the companies he destroyed while increasing his personal wealth. As an MBA, Romney was successful in increasing his own wealth at all costs, but as president that mindset destroys economies and particularly American jobs. Romney or any other Republican cannot explain how giving the wealthiest 1% of income earners more tax cuts while eliminating public sector jobs will lead to an improved economy and the full employment myth any more than eliminating Wall Street and banking regulations will create more jobs. The last MBA president tried those approaches and created more wealth for the rich and corporations, sent millions of American jobs overseas, and presided over the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression. Despite Romney’s assertions, the economy is improving and jobs are being created, albeit at a slower than desired pace, but if Republicans had not deliberately obstructed the President’s economic and job creation policies, it is highly likely there would be more robust growth. A real economic expert, Robert Reich says the problem is not economic, but political. He claims the Republican push to cut public spending before the economy is healthy is the real problem, but then again Reich is an economic expert, not an MBA. As an MBA, Romney may be good at creating wealth for himself and investors by killing Americans’ jobs and bankrupting companies, but those esteemed qualities do not qualify him to serve as president any more than George W. Bush was qualified. President Obama never insinuated he was an economic guru, but he has been successful cleaning up the last MBA president’s mess by following sound economic principles that create jobs and financial stability for all the people and not just wealthy investors that may be why Romney considers the President’s policies a failure. Romney’s failure is promising to repeat George W. Bush’s economic policies, and as Americans learn that a vote for Romney is a vote for the second, more catastrophic coming of Bush, they will remember that electing an MBA as president was a disaster this country, or its people, cannot tolerate again and survive.

    Willard's moral behavior is my biggest concern, from his early days on up to his tenure as CEO of Bain Capital. Anyone who fails to see a moral deficiency in what amounts to robbery and fraud are themselves guilty of "aiding and abetting" by casting a vote for this criminal.
    We do not question venture capitalism, but "vulture" capitalism.
    Well, you say,.....his business is "legal".
    I say....so is abortion!!!!
  • luvguins mach 2012/05/28 13:57:49
    So true. Bain Capital had no moral compass, and still doesn't, nor does Wall St. It is an era of corrupt capitalism like the gilded age was.

    AHAHAHAHAHA!!!! what a blivet!

    the author suggests that we a better off with economically ignorant leadership?


    who COULD be 'smart enough' to lead us then?
  • luvguins beavith1 2012/05/28 01:22:39
    Romney would be that economically ignorant leader. He can't talk about his governorship of MA, or how he ran to the government to pay for the Olympics, or his tax returns. 25 months of steady job growth despite GOP sabotage is almost a miracle when the GOP hoped it would be zero.

    Actually, I think a Romney presidency would result in a booming stock market that would be proclaimed as an economic recovery. Except that it would amount to little more than another bubble fueled by wealthy investor glee, which would burst when Europe undergoes their next round of instability.

    The cure for this economy is to avoid future bubbles, to continue slow steady improvement in fundamental economic measures and to halt the flow of wealth from middle-class to the ultra-wealthy. We need to have a cap on wealth transfer through inheritance. No one needs to be able to transfer billions of dollars to their children. Let them make their own way in the world say with no more than $50 million of Daddy's money.
  • luvguins YouSirName 2012/05/27 21:52:54
    Amen! The GOP policies will exactly create another bubble and bail out we won't recover from.
  • Defendn... luvguins 2012/06/21 17:32:38
    You're right on about ESTABLISHMENT GOP policies. Unfortunately establishment neocon Obomba and other democrats are essentially doing the same.

    Let's change these parties from the inside, get purchasing power back to local communities rather than steal more for the corporate elites by debasing currency, evaporating purchasing power of pensions, social security, salaries, savings and bailing out campaign bribers.

  • William YouSirName 2012/05/31 07:27:36
    Romney's slightly less boring than POW McCain. Nevertheless, boring. The excitement level for Romney on the Applause meter is just over 11.5 out of 100. As the author stated, Romney has nothing to offer anyone except rich white men over 50. Everyone else, yawn. The Republican Party has done it again. Another lukewarm, vomit green, repulsive candidate to ignore.

    Obama could declare martial law, have sex with 30 interns(cigar optional), get divorced, raise the tax rate to 50 percent for all Americans, bailout Greece, plunge us into a depression worse than the one in the 1930s and start WWIII and it would still not give Romney a measurable gain in popularity. He's another Bob Dole, John McCain, John Kerry, Walter Mondale candidate brought to you by the stupid party.

    Romney is a world-famous expert.
    He knows how to make money - killing jobs.
  • Andrew 2012/05/26 20:37:49
    I would agree that we should not follow any political leader! We should follow time tested principles and truth. Since the left has totally abandoned truth and is falling for every Socialist lie that comes down the pike I cannot support a single Democraty! Everything these Progressives (Regressives) preach is straight out of Marxism and has failed EVERY time it has been tried and they want us to believe that somehow, they are morally and intellectually superior to those who have tried them in the past. It is just the fact that they can't tell lies from truth!

    You are acting as if 2% growth is something to rejoice about! That is laughable! Besides, there are many Republicans who are trotting along with these Progressive (Regressive) policies and they are the cause of the ruination of our economy! You can post all the stupid charts you want manufactured by so called Progressives, but the fact is it is a jobless recovery that only benefits Wall Street Welfare recipients and doesn't produce jobs. It you want facts, there are less pAmericans employed today then when Barrack Obama and the Democrats took control! They just don't count you once you roll off the back side of 99 weeks of unemployment!

    Go ahead and fire me than, but you can't silence me!

    By the way, I lived in the Silicon valley for 14 years and you have a bigger problem with unemployment than the rest of the country! We here in Pittsburgh are suffering with about 6% and you think you have it good?! Really?! That's hilarious. I have friends who used to earn six figures who can't find work, so don't tell me they can't find qualified people! Ny friends are fully qualified, so why can't they find work?!
  • trentin... Andrew 2012/05/27 00:03:24
    "you have a bigger problem with unemployment than the rest of the country! "

    You don't know wtf you are talking about. Qualified people - especially in engineering - have multiple job offers. Unqualified, or obsolete people - such as your friends (I guess) - cannot find work. As I said: there is a huge mismatch between labor demand and supply - which needs to be addressed. There are plenty of job openings - and not enough skilled workers to fill those openings.

    "Silicon Valley Hiring (Dot) BOOM: Part Deux"
    Posted by: Vanessa Gosseen on March 29th, 2012

    "As noted in San Jose Inside, Joint Venture Silicon Valley published their employment statistics for February, noting 42,000 new jobs were created in the Silicon Valley alone in the last 12 months. Additionally, unemployment stands at 8% in the region vs. 11% across the state.

    Tech-jobs website operator Dice, reported that salaries for software and other engineering professionals in the Silicon Valley rose 5.2% to an average of $104,195 last year, more than double the national average 2% increase, to $81,327, in tech-workers’ salaries"

    And it costs double the national average to buy a home! Or triple!

    Gee.... Lets see:
    The Democrats are offering up an economic ignoramus that blew 1 trillion dollars on a failed stimulus that only lined the pockets of his donors like Kaiser from Solyndra. Gas prices have doubled since he took office and he has managed to keep unemployment ABOVE 8% for more than 39 straight months even after sending the debt to $15,644,561,324,145 usdebtclock.org

    The Republicans have a HUGELY successful CEO who saved companies and jobs that were on their way to bankruptcy and as Governor BALANCED THE BUDGET every year after inheriting a deficit and saved a scandal filled Olympics in the shadow of 9-11.

    better the devil we know versus the one we don't?

    its only my opinion, but he didn't get it done. he's had his chance.

    a normal CEO in a turnaround situation gets a year. maybe two. Obama has the biggest turnaround situation known to man and he's had four. and failed.
  • luvguins beavith1 2012/05/29 03:53:38
    Romney can't translate anything he's done to the country. He will be a disaster like Bush.
