Tag: Willard Mitt Romney
In other news about the super-rich, tax-evading, foot-in-mouth, Etch-a-Sketch candidate, this story illustrates yet again how Willard is not like you, me, or anyone else we've ever known.
At Mitt Romney's proposed California beach house, the cars will have their own separate elevator.Seriously, you can't make this s*** up.
There's also a planned outdoor shower and a 3,600-square foot basement - a room with more floor space than the existing home's entire living
A project this ambitious comes with another feature you don't always find with the typical fixer-upper: its own lobbyist, hired by Romney to push the plan through the approval process.
Increasingly, the question with Willard "Mitt the Ripper" Romney is "what's he hiding?" So far, we know that he only pays a 15% tax rate, far lower than tens of millions of Americans pay, because almost all of his income comes from investments, which are taxed at a lower rate than earned income (e.g., the kind you make from actually...uh, working!). We also know that Romney believes the $375k (15 times the average American's annual income) he earned last year from speaking appearances is "not very much." We also know that Willard jokes about being "unemployed" and worrying about getting a "pink slip," when in fact he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Heck, this guy doesn't even realize that Tuesday is a work day for normal, non-multi-mega-millionaire Americans. Can this guy possibly be any further out of touch with real Americans? Hard to see how. Perhaps that's why Willard feels like he doesn't have to play by the same rules as everyone else, which in this case is that if you're a party's presumptive nominee for president, you release your tax returns going back several years at least. The problem for Willard, of course, is that he almost certainly has something to hide; hence, the hemming, hawing, stonewalling, etc. - to the point that even Chris Christie, for pete's sake, is now urging his pal Willard to just release the darned tax returns already! Don't hold your breath...
