Good news, everybody. Mitt Romney has managed a hand job

/I need to slow down when reading headlines
 
2012-12-04 09:02:23 AM
So right back to hiring illegal immigrants then?
 
2012-12-04 09:02:35 AM
...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

Was one of those employees the guy/gal who torpedoed your campaign with the 47% tape? Prob not too keen on supporting that person.
 
2012-12-04 09:07:55 AM
I guess he didn't list Sheldon Adelson as a reference.
 
2012-12-04 09:13:57 AM
Remember after the election when we were all like "HaHa we'll never have to hear about Romney again!"?

Yeah. Should have known.
 
2012-12-04 09:14:54 AM
Well, hey. If the man's getting his life back together, more power to him.

zippyZRX: fusillade762: In related news: Marriott suddenly billions of dollars in debt and on the verge of declaring bankruptcy.

No that would be if Obamawas running Marriott or are you just as stupid as most Farkers here.


Some people are amusing even while being tedious and marginally intelligent.
You aren't.

I love you so much : )
/So many pics to so many responses : )

I had a totally different response in mind until I found this pic. I cannot for the life of me figure out whatever might have prompted this gesture.

Well I love your wit with all your pics is that better? And you now I'm a fan and you know I'll buy you a beer if you ever come to my town, so : )


Yeah, this election season solidified TallBoy's place in the upper echelon of FarkPol legends. We have our Pocket Ninja, our stoparrestingme, our BloodyWilliam, and now ox45tallboy gets to join their ranks.

It takes a herculean effort to move from Green 2 to Yellow 2. But in just 3 short months he's done the unthinkable and shot right past yellow 2 to Blue 1.

So all Marriott are being moved to China? amirite? That's what mean and evil Rich Romney does, right? Is he going to fire all the minorities that work at Marriott? and then move all the hotels to china? Of course! oh, and deny the employees healthcare! war on women, biatches! Yeah, and mormon's are weird! Tax the rich! I am such a clever little liberal democrat!

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

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.

"With a widdle magic dust on top!"

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.

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.

So now when you check into a Marriott you'll find a bible and a douche bag in every room.

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.
 
2012-12-04 11:51:13 AM
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.

jaytkay: 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!!"


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.

Droz: Well, here's all you need to know. Classes: nothing before eleven. Beer: it's your best friend, you drink a lot. Women? You're a freshman, so it's pretty much out of the question. Will you have a car?
Tom: Uh, no.
Droz: Someone on your floor will. Find them and make friends with them on the first day.

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.

Ew.

Just ew.

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.
