50. Romney compared to the Kennedy's
Sat Apr 14, 2012, 11:04 AM
Apr 2012


JFK was a compassionate LEADER that was at the forefront of a new American era of Peace and Prosperity for all. He was a beacon of hope for a better future and for what America could be for all of us.

Bobby in his later years was simply a beautiful and compassionate person. His speeches during the 1968 Presidential Campaign and his Indianapolis speech the day M.L. King was assassinated was filled with love and hope and compassion for others and greatness. There were riots all over the country from the killing, but there was no such thing happening in Indianapolis, perhaps from Bobby's compassion alone?

Teddy was the Liberal Lion for his entire Senate Career and crafted legislation to help the less fortunate all the freaking time.

And then the second generation Kennedy's - gets a little fuzzy info wise for me here, but Bobby JR. is a beautiful person doing beautiful work on behalf of the less fortunate all the time. Still plugging away for justice and fairness any way he can.

Romney-the-Vulture-Capitalist is a different can of worms. He seems to be compassionate only about growing his already staggering fortune even further regardless of the human misery and wrecked lives his form of "enterprise" creates.

I find Mitt to be the epitome of everything wrong with America today. The poster boy of crony capitalism and greed is good and dismantling perfectly fine companies so as to extract the maximum amount of money, wrecked human lives and livelihood be damned.

Why the hell America should even be considering such a SOCIOPATHIC GREEDHEAD for President is beyond my comprehension. Mitt and his Country Club Crony Capitalists are the the root cause of the economic inequality we are currently immersed in at record levels of unfair weath distribution.

Has anybody ever made a body count of jobs Mitt destroyed vs. jobs he created in his business pursuits? That would be one hell of an interesting factoid!

We are the 99% and our country is seriously considering electing a member of the .01%; the fuckers that wrecked everything for all of us? THAT DOES NOT COMPUTE!

All they got us money. We got numbers and boots on the ground. If 99% of us can't beat these 1% fuckers in an election, then we'll deserve our fate! I hope we as a nation aren't that fucking stupid!
