Diogenes: Reporter: "Governor Romney, your wife Ann has hinted that you are cheap. Would you call yourself a penny-pincher?"

Romney: "What's a penny?" JC Penney, the corporation to which you're referring, has had several quarters of decline. If I were in a position at Bain Capital, we would indeed consider 'pinching' it.

Serious Black: "If you crumple a bunch of $100 bills together and wrap them tightly in duct tape, you have a makeshift softball. This is the kind of creative problem solving I will bring to the presidency." - Mitt Romney


"When shopping for shoes for my dancing horse, I always look for the "buy-three-get-one-free" sales."

Diogenes: James!: Diogenes: James!: I thought it was weird how the convention video highlighted what a cheapskate he is.

They were going for frugal. But Ann was just on some late night show and was asked point blank "frugal or cheap?" and she said "cheap." Funny, perhaps, but it really steps on the message.


Instead of buying a proper lightbulb for his stove he used a normal bulb and tin foil.  That's how Mitt Romney solves problems.

Mock if you will. But we could use someone with creative problem skills that could potentially burn the country to the ground.

He's a loverboy at play-ay...

Okay, I think that's where it breaks down.

I posted something like this onto my Facebook page about six weeks ago and this thread reminds me of why I posted it:

Some of the wealthy elite complain that we have become a culture that hates successful people. This is untrue; we hate the miserly and this is nothing new: In history, the miser would hoard money and callously overwork those under his employ. They were curiosities to be mocked and they inspired fictitious characters (the ubiquitious Scrooge) who were looked upon with disdain untill or unless they recieved a dose of humanity and changed their ways. Today's miser works hides money in off-shore mattresses and fervently attempt to influence elections and change laws to benefit himself financially while the rest of us foot the bill. We don't have problems with the rich, it's misers we cannot stand. And never could.

It is refreshing, in a way, that the Romney miser, like the Hetty Greens and John Elwes' of the yore, also eschews hot water if it meant saving a few pennies. How old school of him!

/ Misers of all generations are odd ducks.
// The Wiki page of Elwes has this image:

Remind you of anyone? Yes, I think so...

qph.cf.quoracdn.net 

// Love this factoid from his page: "He once badly cut both legs while walking home in the dark, but would only allow the apothecary to treat one, wagering his fee that the untreated limb would heal first. Elwes won by a fortnight and the doctor had to forfeit his fee."

nope, no idea

5 of them would clog the drain.


Great, now you've got me thinking about Romney's five sons standing in a hot shower and masturbating into the drain, perhaps while asking each other how their day went, and "could you pass that shower cloth I'm almost done here, thanks bro".
