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.

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.

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...

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.

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

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.

Bigdogdaddy: Wyalt Derp: What, no gig on Fox?

Now what the hell would he do at Fox? I mean, at Marriot he will be able to cut wages, hire illegals, strip pension funds, cook the books and then sell them or close them down and sell the properties to make money to put in his 100 million dollar "IRA".


He would do the one other thing he is good at: saying anything people want him to say.

david_gaithersburg: A job, something most elected officials have never had.


It's hilarious that you think Romney has ever worked a day in his pampered, entitled life.

See how easy it is to get a good paying job, you lazy poors?

If you just pull yourself up by your bootstraps, one of your millionaire cronies will hire you, too.

brandied: 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...


70 million in fictional tax loss? I was under the impression this was called accounting dressage.

Is my sarcasm detector broken?

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.

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.

Mega Steve: 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 knew that picture of Tagg reminded me of someone, whom I couldn't place. Tonight, I have had the perfect amount of beer to recall.

Mikey1969: 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.


You are making $5 million a year by attending meetings totaling maybe 5 hours each 5 months?

Nadie_AZ: 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.


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

hubiestubert: 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?


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.
