    Romney Net Worth: 250 million
    Good for him. I hope he becomes President and fixes our budget problem since he clearly knows how to do it.

    WTF. I am not jealous at all, and Ann made a decision to stay home. That's the decision she made. I don't think that that is neither a bad nor good decision. I don't judge women based on such decisions, but the fact remains that a middle class housewife and a upper, 1%, housewife live in two different worlds. Pointing that out isn't class warfare... get a grip

    I don't see the accumulation of personal wealth as evidence that the individual in question will be effective at implementing macroeconomic (fiscal and monetary) policies that'll bring this country back on track. I really don't think there is much of a correlation.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I think it's pretty obvious who is judging women in this thread.

    Being "good" means more than being opportunistic, and being an effective leader is neither a right, nor a sure fire guarantee of undeserved privilege.
    Every world power in history was built on the backs of slavery. Stop pretending America invented it. It was ugly, it was abolished, and now your pathetic party tries with all its might to keep the racial tensions churning, a la Trayvon Martin.

    If Michelle is fair game, then Ann Romney is fair game. She's out campaigning for her husband as well.

    Well, I don't either as evidenced by the former and current President we have. I was speaking more about his history of fixing economic issues.

    No doubt, whatsoever. Private Venture firms, are not at all interested in the employee base of the companies they get involved with. For many of these firms, it is essentially one step away from a hostile take-over. They don't just "invest" passively and then walk away. They want management control of the entity and they typically make radical decisions with respect to who stays on board and who goes home packing. They will pack your bags for you and send you to the front door with a pink slip in a heartbeat, if you don't fit their agenda.

    That's definitely not the Employee Friendly picture that Mitt, has been rolling around the country, painting for himself. Do they help to financial rescue some of the entities they get involved with? Sure, no doubt - 100% true. Others would say that they prey on the weak, pump the company's stock profile on the street and then Dump & Run. There's money in that kind of deal too, but it does not speak to one's abundance of integrity, no doubt.

    If Romney, was involved in true (pure) Venture Capital deals from the ground-up (start-ups, incubators, first/second round funding, etc.), then that is truly Entrepreneurial and that is one of the purest forms of sincere risk taking. But, if he was involved in what I call Vulture Capital, then that's a horse of another color, entirely.

    He didn't say America invented it.

    PW4000 stated quite clearly that he's neither a Dem nor a Repub.

    Any other irrelevant arguments you would like to make?
