Good freakin' God, woman, just stop:
BRIAN KILMEADE (HOST): The report is after Mitt Romney lost to John McCain for the nomination, he got an offer from a fund, $30 million a year, go back into the financial world, have all types of success. How hard was the decision not to do that?Of course their life isn't about making money. They already have all the money! Europe isn't big enough to store all the money they have; that's why they have to spread it around to various exotic islands too.
ROMNEY: Well, we’re used to kind of passing offers up like that. For us, our life is not about making money. We’ve been very blessed financially. Our life is now about giving back. I always trust that Mitt can always make another dollar. Poor guy, he took no pay when he did the Olympics for three years and no pay when he was governor for four years.
This, from the same woman who said:
We can be poor in spirit, and I don’t even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing, it can be here today and gone tomorrow.Sure, that money may evaporate tomorrow—but then, Mitt's used to getting offers for $30 million-a-year jobs, so it's not like they need to worry. They did all their worrying back when they were a young couple, just starting out, really struggling in those "not easy years," as Ann said, trying to make ends meet with nothing more than the investment portfolio Mitt's daddy gave him, "living on the edge, not entertaining." Oh, the hardship!
This, from the woman who, when explaining how warm and fuzzy it makes her feel to donate her required tithing to her church, said:
I know this money is an indication of how much we trust God and love the principle of sacrifice. And it teaches us not to be too, too tied to the things of the world. And it is a very good reminder of how blessed we really are, and most of those blessings do not come from a financial source, but from the power above.Guess God really loves them so much to keep sending them those offers of $30 million-a-year salaries they keep turning down because, hey, another one will come along tomorrow. But at least it's taught them not to be tied to things of the world—like Ann's couple of Cadillacs, or their vacation homes in every swing state in America, or the car elevator in their tear-down beach mansion. Does this woman ever listen to herself? EVER?
I'm guessing not, because this really takes the cake:
Poor guy, he took no pay when he did the Olympics for three years and no pay when he was governor for four years.Poor guy? Poor guy? Poor guy who's constantly turning down tens of millions of dollars? Poor guy who cries when he donates money to his church? Poor guy?
Stay tuned for part eleventy billion and one ...
