  •  Mitt Romney doesn't need (5+ / 0-)

    a new accountant. What he needs is a heart. And a functioning brain.

    He who is carried away by his own importance seldom has far to walk back.

      It's about squeezing a little more out of the tens of millions of dollars he gets from Bain every year.
      As I wrote in another thread recently:
      What I really don't get about the mindset of such people is:  How much money do they need?

      How much money is enough?

      Who really needs hundreds of millions ... billions ... tens of billions ... of dollars, to the point where they are so desperate for more that they will resort to hurting and destroying millions of innocent people in order to get a bit more that they really don't even need?

      What exactly does the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth hundred million buy them that the first couldn't?

      Exactly how large is the psychological/emotional emptiness in such people that even millions of dollars, and all the luxuries it will buy, isn't enough fill the hole?

      Being forced to watch Romney so much lately ... seeing how millionaires talk to each other behind closed doors ... watching Republicans being so blatant in their "Coddle the rich, screw everyone else" agenda ... hearing of corporate billionaires bullying their employees to vote in their interests, not the employees' own ...

      That question has been going through my mind a lot lately.

      I would really like to see someone ask him right out:  "Mitt, why do you really need that much money?"

      An empty soul is a powerful vacuum.
