Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.
~ John Maynard Keynes
The Obama campaign seems to be trying to tie Mitt Romney to Gordon Gekko, the fictional character and main antagonist in the 1987 film “Wall Street.” However, the Obama campaign needs to remember that, in spite of the havoc that big banks and “vulture” capitalists have wreaked on the country, Americans tend to remain enthralled by wealth and power. Folks don’t like to admit it, but they like Gordon Gekko.
Dems, don’t compare Mitt with Gordon Gekko. Romney is really Joe Isuzu. Remember Joe Isuzu and the Isuzu commercials? That’s what it seems like I’m watching every time I see or hear Mitt Romney speak. He’s not just insincere, he says whatever he thinks we want to hear — whether it’s true or not. Whether he believes it or not. The only thing missing is the crawl along the bottom of the TV screen that reads, “He’s lying.”
