So one of his buddies took pity on him? Must be nice.

ladyfortuna: So one of his buddies took pity on him? Must be nice.


Well he is named after J. Willard Marriott.
 
2012-12-03 11:31:49 PM
See? That's one less unemployed person under Romney's leadership right there!
 
2012-12-03 11:50:47 PM
I get the feeling he was emotionally destroyed by the loss and that this was an attempt to try and move on. Will he be able to? We'll see.

Mariott has mormon ties all over. So he's closer to home, now.

Marriott -- catering the world's whitest food to America's college students.
 
2012-12-04 12:19:38 AM
He'll do anything for free lodging. Only the little people pay for hotel rooms.
 
2012-12-04 12:23:20 AM
Really? That's great. I was really sweating how he was going to make ends meet.
 
2012-12-04 12:34:10 AM
Wonder how long until they figure out how to outsource all the rooms to China?
 
2012-12-04 12:37:23 AM
Nice to see that he's landing on his feet. I mean, I'm sure that we were all worried that he'd just wind up on the couch eating Cheetos and smoking bowl after bowl, right?

While Mitt was on the board of Marriott, prior to leaving in 2011 to run for President, Marriott and Romney made millions of dollars a year from porn. In-room porn rentals at their hotels amounted to an average of $175 per guest every year.
Of course, the hotel chain said they were phasing out in-room porn; some say it was to placate the social conservatives. And even then, they just kinda vaguely said they would slowly phase out porn from most of their new hotels.
So, Mitt, Marriott and the Mormons: pornographers.
 
2012-12-04 12:55:00 AM
Who?
 
2012-12-04 12:57:58 AM
"It is an honor to once again be able to serve in the company of leaders like Bill Marriott and Arne Sorenson and to support the work of the tens of thousands of Marriott associates who make Marriott International the renowned success that it is," Romney wrote in a statement distributed by Marriott.

Anybody catch the name of the company he landed with?
 
2012-12-04 01:05:39 AM
So now the in-room porn is handicapped?
 
2012-12-04 01:13:59 AM
Quite the feat, in this economy.
 
2012-12-04 01:14:38 AM
Mitt Romney had rejoined their board of directors, a position he held prior to his White House bid.

so like 10 years ago?

Okay... just for you!

www.washingtonpost.com
"Hi..ummmm, yes, this is Mitt in room 1201. When I checked in, I specifically requested that the porn in my room be disabled. Yes, DISABLED. I'm a Mormon, for cryin' out loud! No, it most certainly is not!"

"Oh.. sir, I'm so sorry about that. I'll get that taken care of right away."

Its not going to be that profitable for them going forward anyway--when you've got hi-speed wireless in any room, why pay the hotel extra for porn?

Would you rather he go back to campaigning?
 
2012-12-04 02:43:22 AM
I guess I don't understand why someone with hundreds of millions of dollars needs a job, but that's just me.

Pretty sure I wouldn't want to stay in a Marriott Hotel knowing this, either.

How nice for Mitt... Having been out of work these past 2 months, I know what he was going thru. Ironically enough, I went in and completed MY new-hire paperwork for my new job today... I think Mitt and I were separated at birth.

I wonder how many people think you're joking.

Just another reason, among a plethora, for my ongoing boycott of all things Marriott.
 
2012-12-04 02:55:01 AM
Cue people boycotting Marriott, causing other people to start staying with their hotels. Resulting in absolutely nothing.

You have to admit, back in June/July his campagin was good for at least a laugh a day. If the mainstream media would stop taking him seriously and treat him like the ass he is, I wouldn't mind him back on the campaign trail.

Mitt in 2016!

The sad thing is he could do that for the rest of his life and still have at least 95% of his fortune left over. Andrew Carnegie would have a heart attack.

Cuz a corporate board seat is a job.

"Hey there buddy! What d'ya say we pay you, I dunno, $500K/year? And you rubber stamp my $20M/year salary and $500M stock gifts? Gee, really, you would be so generous? Gollyy!!"
 
2012-12-04 03:10:10 AM
Sounds like Mitt has his ducks in a row. Rumor has it that he stayed at La Quinta the night before. Then reported all those ferr lukin hotel staff just after he checked out. Said they should self deport.

But that is just a rumor.

No word on what happened to the ducks, but there are duck dishes featured on various Marriott hotel restaurant menus. Coincidence?
 
2012-12-04 03:11:23 AM
Mitt goes and works for Marriott. And what's Ann going to do? Go riding on her dancing horsetm?

I had forgotten the food. *shudder*

Survival tip for those going to college in towns smaller than the campus: If you don't have a car, become really good friends with someone who does.

A new gig on Undercover Boss? I can't wait. Maybe they'll make him up to look like the Pope. "Why yes young lady, please confess your sins to me." ~fap, fap, fap~
 
2012-12-04 03:19:29 AM
So he went from possibly being the leader of the free world to working for a Mormon-owned mid-level hotel chain?

Oh don't worry I love you too, hell you're the only rational conservative I know of.

In related news: Marriott suddenly billions of dollars in debt and on the verge of declaring bankruptcy.

Mariott has mormon ties all over. So he's closer to home, now.


Also mormon suspenders and mormon socks. Hopefully now he can hire some mormon maids to pick up after him,

"Hello. Front desk?"

"yes"

"This is mister Brown in room 877"

"Yes Mr Brown, how can I help you?"

"well I have a complaint"

"Oh no sir. please tell us what is wrong so we can assist you"

"well, the bed isn't made, the sheets are dirty, there's no toilet paper, and no soap in my room"

"you have to understand sir, There are 47 percent of the people who will go to a motel 6 no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with them, who are dependent upon maids, who believe that they are victims, who believe that maids and room service have a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to clean sheets, toilet paper, soap, to you name it. That that's an entitlement. And the hotel should give it to them. So our job is not to worry about those people-we'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their rooms. Now if you'll excuse me Mr Brown, and please, enjoy your stay at the Marriott, and have a nice day."
