Mitt Romney really cares about somebody

And, shockingly, for a politician, it is himself.  Although not enough to edit himself before he speaks…as ever.

During his presidential campaign in 2007, Republican candidate Mitt Romney promised that a trust overseeing his financial portfolio would shed any investments that conflicted with GOP positions toward Iran, China, stem cell research and other issues. But Romney’s family trusts kept some of those stocks and repeatedly bought new investments in similar holdings as recently as 2010, when they were sold in advance of his latest White House campaign

Mitt may be willing to say he does not care about “the poors” because there’s little profit in it.  However, there was money to be made off of other things the GOP hates irrationally (redundant, I know) and ol’ Mitt’s Millions took priority for as long as possible. But that’s not entirely the story, I’m sure if there was a good soylent green investment, Mitt would be willing to grind up poor people too — unopposed by Republicans as long as the prospective veal had emerged from the womb for a bit (and been deprived of udder exams).

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
