Hah. This is why I think Obama's second term is a nail in the coffin of the derpstorm brigade. The Job Creators have been hoarding their wealth to keep the economy growing so Obama couldn't win a second term. Well, they derped so much he got one anyway, because they scared everyone away from the Generic Republican they nominated. Now they have ready cash burning holes in their pockets, and if they don't invest in their businesses soon their own incomes will be affected. So they're gonna have to start hiring people, buying capital equipment and giving raises again, which means that the economy will pick up nicely as that cash starts to circulate. Result: second term Obama becomes the New Reaganesque Superhero.

I'm just giddy with glee.

That guy is leveraged up to his eyebrows according to what was shown in the movie (Queen of Versailles). His entire business is a house of cards. When the economy went down in 2008/2009 he admitted he didn't even have enough savings to send his kids to college. He isn't a very bright man, IMHO.

Corporate profits up 77% under Obama - How can anyone survive under his socialistic rule?

I wanted to help them handle the additional burdens the government will put on them.

He knows his employees will leave him as the economy inevitably improves under Obama.

That kind of behavior is EXACTLY why Mitt wasn't trusted or voted in.

mjohnson71: You say that like its a bad thing.

Considering they're probably hard as watermelons I'm going to go ahead and say it's probably a bad thing. Fake tits are gross enough to handle when they're not mutant-like abnormalities.

I'd feel bad about mocking her and her weird turtle neck and that tanned-leather-stretched-around-a-stone-bust thing she's got going on top of it, but the fact that the only reason this knob is doing any of this is to troll people sort of blunts my sympathy a bit.

If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, ... I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company

In other words, "I am running on the barest possible margin, unable to absorb even the slightest additional expenditure...

...oh, look, I've got the headroom to add an extra 5% to my labor costs."

Wow. I've not been in the workforce very long, but this is the first time I've ever read about someone getting a backhanded raise.

Might be ready to trade that one in for a newer model.

It looks like he has invested quite a bit into maintenance so far on this one. New headlights and a front fascia restoration from the picture. When it comes time to redo the interior that may be the time for a trade in.

His snark aside, I am a bit impressed. Locals here know what a tremendous tightwad he is (I know people on his home staff).

I had expected something more along the lines of "I spent a ton of money to defeat Obama, so now I have to downsize. You can blame Obama for that."

Good for him, regardless of his reasons.
