Qualified

May 21st, 2012

Inspired by Obama’s discussion of whether Romney’s experience at Bain qualifies him to be President.

 

“And when you’re President, as opposed to the head of a private equity firm, then your job is not simply to maximize profits.  Your job is to figure out how everybody in the country has a fair shot.  Your job is to think about those workers who got laid off and how are we paying for their retraining.  Your job is to think about how those communities can start creating new clusters so that they can attract new businesses.  Your job as President is to think about how do we set up a equitable tax system so that everybody is paying their fair share that allows us then to invest in science and technology and infrastructure, all of which are going to help us grow. And so, if your main argument for how to grow the economy is I knew how to make a lot of money for investors, then you’re missing what this job is about.  It doesn’t mean you weren’t good at private equity, but that’s not what my job is as President.  My job is to take into account everybody, not just some.  My job is to make sure that the country is growing not just now, but 10 years from now and 20 years from now.” – President Obama at NATO press conference

 

President Obama blatantly lied

When he said Romney’s not qualified.

 

Creating wealth for his investors IS what a President does

(At least with Bush and other Republicans, it was).

 

And that’s exactly what Romney would do,

Since he worships the tax-cut God too.

 

Mitt would do as Pres what he did at Bain:

Chopping and cutting for personal gain.

 

He’d load up on debt to pay off the rich.

And everyone else? Well, life’s a bitch.

 

That’s the way creative destruction goes:

You what what direction the crap always flows.

Here’s the President’s discussion at the NATO press conference today about whether Romney’s Bain experience qualifies him to be President. OK, so maybe it’s a little harsh to call Obama’s answer a blatant lie, but it was at least technically wrong. Creating wealth for his investors (aka campaign contributors) may not be what a President is supposed to do, but it IS what a Republican President does.
