What does a man who has been legally dead a few times and has had to use a mobile heart to live, and a man who straps a dog on top of his car and leaves him there even after he gets sick and has diarrhea all over the car have in common? Well, how about Cheney and Romney? These two men have plenty in common.
Both are as rich as God, both are crooks who have off-shore bank accounts and have headed companies (Halliburton and Bain) that sucked America dry. One is called Darth Vader for being a war profiteer and sending soldiers to their death in needless wars and the other is called Daddy Warbucks for all the millions he has hidden all over the world.
According to the NY Times, you need to understand what Higgs boson is before you can figure out Romney's finances. He was at Bain when they created jobs, but took a leave of absense when they were out-sourcing jobs, even though they paid him a six-figure salary for not being there. This from the NY Times
: While he was in Utah getting the luge runs in shape, Romney was also still getting a six-figure salary for being a Bain “executive.” Perhaps for Mitt, that was just the going-away equivalent of a monogrammed briefcase. Although it does sort of take the steam out of his principled refusal to accept any money from the Olympics until his turnaround was successfully completed.
He would much rather have someone his old buddies, such as Norquist, Wolfowitz, and Perle could handle than a Mormon that has his own crew of crooks. I am not religious man in any shape or form, so I could care less what religion Romney is. But there are higher-ups in the Mormon Church that are just as bad as Cheney's cast of nattering nabobs of negativism and helpless, hysterical hypochondriacs. (damn, I've always wanted to write those words) So why did he endorse him?
The same way that Bill Clinton gritted his teeth and shook Barack Obama's hand and endorsed him after he defeated his wife in one of the roughest and toughest democratic presidential primaries in our nations history. They both went for the throat and when President Obama won, Bill and Hillary both campaigned for him in what had to be one of the hardest things they ever had to do. But when Obama named Hillary his Secretary of State, it surprised the Clintons as much as the rest of the world. Romney does not now, nor will he ever have the balls to make a decision like that if he is elected president. Bet on it.
