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

See, America? This is what happens when you pull up your bootstraps: you get a job on a board of directors.

It's just that easy.

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.


Well, Mitt does know binders full of women...

Im sure hell be paying as much in taxes as the rest of us average Americans, on top of the modest salary they give him.

BTW what was the final count on Mitts tax rates? 12-14 percent?

/And he most certainly wasnt paying less than that the years he's keeping mum about

log_jammin: "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."


Awesome.

J.W. Marriott Jr. credited Mitt Romney with changing Americans' perceptions about Mormonism

If anything, I perceive them as creepier. And weird. Before, they were just cute guys riding around on bicycles and trying to tell people about their make-it-up-as-you-go-along religion. Now I see they've snuck into all kinds of places. Like Scientologists in Hollywood.

Mitt Romney's father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, named his son Willard Mitt Romney after J. Willard Marriott, the family's patriarch.

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.

Would you rather he go back to campaigning?

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!


Was that during the primary? Because in those days Herman Cain was the undisputed Comedy King. He was good for at least one breathtakingly stupid remark on a daily basis.

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

/fun fact - the last legal brothel in Salt Lake city was run by the Mormon church

Was I the only one that read far enough into the article to see this..?

"...That Romney was involved with the reporting of a $70 million fictional tax loss when he served on Marriot's board in the nineteen-nineties.

While Romney did not face criminal charges, unlike others linked to the scandal, the authors of the editorial wrote "his endorsement of this stratagem provides insight into Romney's professional ethics and attitude toward tax compliance obligations.""

Thank goodness he didn't have criminal charges so he can get right back into the BOD...
