Well he is named after J. Willard Marriott.

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?

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.

Mitt Romney had rejoined their board of directors, a position he held prior to his White House bid.

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?

"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."

He's the perfect example of the American can-do attitude. Sure he didn't to be president, but did he let that get him down? No! He pulled himself up by his bootstraps, went banging on doors, and sending out resumes. He got a nice job that probably pays more and has better benefits than the one he tried to get last month! And as an added bonus, he gets an office right near where his son Tagg works. If I ever want to show my son what a real American can achieve when he started with nothing, I'll show him a picture of Mitt Romney.

And when he's bad and I want to scare him, I'll show him pictures of Mitt's son

I find the $175 dollar per guest kinda hard to accept.

Of course, it's well known that the Mormon Marriotts were raking in big bucks from providing porn..... they are now slowly phasing it out - not because of some religious or moral objection, but simply because, in this age of personal laptops, tablets and mobiles, it simply wasnt making enough money

mormons - at the higher up levels (Mormon royalty) the bottom line will always trump any moral objection

See in Mitt Romney's America you don't get a hand out. YOU WORK HARD to be born to a family friend of one the largest hotel chains in the world that will give you a cushy job. 

You scoff at Republicans but IF IT IS SO EASY TO BE BORN TO RICH PEOPLE WHY DON'T POOR PEOPLE DO IT!?!?!?

He has to realize that seriously even though nobody even thought Romney would have a chance of getting the nomination for the GOP and as long as he was running and left him alone, we have a lot of catching up on the nit picking.

Why would we forget that less than one month ago, you and your birthbagger brethren wanted Mitt Romney to have the most powerful job in the whole farking country? Just because Fox News and Rush decided to start playing the "we never really liked him anyway" narrative less than 5 minutes after the election was called, doesn't mean that non-idiots are buying it.

Like McCain and Sarah Palin, you have to own that you wanted Mitt to be the face of your party.

Romney's one of those privileged assholes, who has never known want. Never know what it's like to go without. It's was one of the few things about him that seemed genuine.

I used to see these types of people when I was younger and working at restaurants and bars on Cape Cod during the Summers. They're pleasant and polite enough as long as things are going their way... but you see their real side when something doesn't go their way. ...or they have to wait for something. ... or they can't get something they want. etc. etc.

This is the worst kind of asshole to have in any kind of governmental position. We found out all about that when Romney was Governor here. Thankfully, the American people made the right decision last month.

propasaurus: 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.


Or as we like to say, from election to erection in less than a month.

Huck And Molly Ziegler: J.W. Marriott Jr. credited Mitt Romney with changing Americans' perceptions about Mormonism

Propain_az: So all Marriott are being moved to China? amirite? That's what mean and evil Rich Romney does, right?

Yeah, and mormon's are weird! Tax the rich! I am such a clever little liberal democrat!


This is what Republicans actually believe Liberals actually believe.

Exactly how much does
Ann struggle, health-wise? Is her smile always so close to a grimace? Other than her speech at the convention, I can't think of any single instance of her smile looking natural rather than forced. I always wonder if it's because she's physically ill or because she's just a biatch.

propasaurus: 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.


I've slept in 48 states of the US and the hotels with the most porn-on-demand were where?

You got it: Salt Lake City

tallguywithglasseson: "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?


Yeah. It's Mormon, Inc.

I was reading this on the subway this morning.

I have absolutely NO problem with someone using their connections to make money.

What I have a problem with is that same person blaming the rest of America for not being "bootstrappy" enough to do the same.

Well, haven't stayed with them much, now never.

Marriott was founded by J. Willard Marriott in 1927 when he and his wife opened a root beer stand in Washington D.C..[3] As a Mormon missionary in the sweltering, humid summers in Washington D.C, Marriott was convinced that what residents of the city needed was a place to get a cool drink.[4] Marriott later expanded his enterprises into a chain of restaurants and hotels.[5]

The Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Virginia is Marriott International's longest operating hotel, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2009.[6] Their son and current Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, J.W. (Bill) Marriott, Jr. has led the company to spectacular worldwide growth. Today, Marriott International has about 3,400 lodging properties located in the United States and 67 other countries and territories. Edwin D. Fuller is the current President and Managing Director of International Lodging for Marriott International.

Marriott International was formed in 1992 when Marriott Corporation split into two companies, Marriott International and Host Marriott Corporation.

In 2002 Marriott International began a major restructuring by spinning off many Senior Living Services Communities (which is now part of Sunrise Senior Living) and Marriott Distribution Services, so that it could focus on hotel ownership and management. The changes were completed in 2003.[7]

In April 1995, Marriott International acquired a 49% interest in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company LLC.[8] Marriott International believed that it could increase sales and profit margins at the Ritz, a troubled chain with a significant number of properties either losing money or barely breaking even. The cost of Marriott's initial investment was estimated to be about $200 million in cash and assumed debt. The next year, Marriott spent $331 million to take over the Ritz-Carlton Atlanta and buy a majority interest in two properties owned by William Johnson, a real estate developer who had purchased the Ritz-Carlton Boston in 1983 and expanded his Ritz holdings over the next twenty years.

The Ritz began expansion into the lucrative timeshare market among other new initiatives made financially possible by the deep pockets of Marriott, which also lent its own in-house expertise in certain areas. There were other benefits for Ritz-Carlton flowing from its relationship with Marriott, such as being able to take advantage of the parent company's reservation system and buying power. The partnership was solidified in 1998 when Marriott boosted its interest in Ritz-Carlton to 99 percent. By 1999 revenues from the 35 hotels it operated around the world totaled about $1.4 billion.

The Marriott World Trade Center was destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks.

"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!!"


It's still annoying.

Most of us would be living it up at age 65 if we had anywhere near as much wealth.

But no, Mittens has to be "working" because it's the American Way or some bullshiat.

How would it feel to be a low wage worker at Marriott? I mean, knowing that your bosses straight up hate you, and want you to pay more in taxes so they can get bigger tax breaks for their dancing horses while they continue to reap millions of dollars from not working at all. I mean, sure the Papa Johns employees know how you feel, but most of the rest of the world isn't nearly that bad.

Watching the final installment of Twilight would be helish enough to begin with but watching that film with the entire Romney clan?

S'rsly.


Yeah, Romney going to a Twilight movie would have been reason enough for me to not vote for him.

Romney has maintained a longtime friendship with members of the Marriott family, who like him are members of the Mormon church and who also own a vacation home on Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

yup... Republicans like Mitt pull themselves up by the bootstraps! Not due to help, not from connections etc ..no siree bob! they built everything from scratch!

hammettman: "Cool?"

Is my sarcasm detector broken?


In the world of business, this guy can probably do, although not good, something society approves of, i.e. making his company money. So yeah, it's cool, or at least socially approvable, to do something that isn't destructive.

Directors of Fortune 500 companies received median pay of $234,000 in 2011. Directorship is a part-time job. A recent National Association of Corporate Directors study found directors averaging just 4.3 hours a week on board work.

Yeaaahhh....
He had a bizarre inability to behave like a normal person in social situations that I don't think I've ever seen before. From his professed love of Michigan's trees that are "the right height", to insulting a local bakery's cookies with his incredibly awkward attempt at sarcasm, I don't think I've ever seen anyone fail so utterly at human interaction in quite the way he does. It's like watching an alien in a human suit who hasn't quite gotten the hang of it yet.
