  •  Apparently, the only skill that's valued is fraud. (12+ / 0-)

    For the Mitt Romneys of the world, the only skill is chiseling money from the masses, by any means necessary.  Loading companies up with debt, making deals by collusion and inside information, breaking contracts when it can make you a quick buck.
