Billionaire Adelson: ‘Limitless’ $$$ for Romney

From Forbes:

“Forbes has confirmed that billionaire Sheldon Adelson, along with his wife Miriam, has donated $10 million to the leading Super PAC supporting presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney -– and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A well-placed source in the Adelson camp with direct knowledge of the casino billionaire’s thinking says that further donations will be “limitless.”

Adelson, who has built Las Vegas Sands into an global casino empire, will do “whatever it takes” to defeat Obama, this source says. And given that Adelson is worth $24.9 billion –- and told Forbes in a recent rare interview about his political giving that he had been willing to donate as much as $100 million to his initial presidential preference, Newt Gingrich –- that “limitless” description telegraphs potential nine-digit support of Romney.”

This is the world wrought by the naivete and partisanship of the Roberts court.

I’d read a followup analysis of the case not that long ago. Cited the back and forth between the justices and the attorneys with attorneys putting forth ‘this is what could happen’ and the majority justices, based on how they saw things then and in the past, rejecting the arguments.

Then the decision was issued, people and corporations adapted, and what was thought to not be possible became reality.

I will see if I can find it – it was a subsection in a larger article – but the point stands. Never, ever say something can’t happen.

The guy understands business and the economy is my view- obviously much more than Obama and I don’t think any reasonable person would disagree with that given their respective career experience in the private sector and in terms of executive experience. You don’t get to be that successful by not understanding these things well. And as I said I trust the motives of a man who already has more money than God over a man still looking to acquire more cash. When you’ve already got 24 billion you don’t have much of a financial motive left as the lower level crook who has 5 or 10 million and wants more.

Not necessarily. That person who you think has altruistic reasons could be positioning himself to get even more. I doubt that anybody is ever content with what they have. If he were content, he could go park himself on an island and never be heard from again. I don’t trust many people at all.

10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

“But I am curious what new material you would suggest for the President. He’s not a comedian. ”

I would suggest bringing in some specifics, Perot-style.

“From the time of the election to the time I was sworn in N million people lost their jobs. N million. That’s people, families, households. The previous 8 years saw only N jobs created and in 3 months that was wiped out N times over. We had a financial crisis that threatened our very nation. I know some revisionists with short memories don’t think so, but that’s the way it was. President Bush, to his credit, jettisoned long-held ideology and moved to stabilize the markets. But losses occurred. Everyone here – didn’t your savings and your pension fund lose half their value? At least? So people lost savings, lost jobs and began losing houses. All before I was sworn in. You know, no one – not Democrats, not Republicans, no one…. knew just how bad things were, how deeply this crisis went.

“So we began taking steps.”

Then finish with words to the effect “it’s been a slow climb, but we’ve added more jobs in N months than we saw in N years under the previous administration. Most of you listening – your savings and retirement accounts have regained value. In fact, the stock market has shown the fastest recover than any time in the past N years. Corporate profits soared. Some people in the opposition will either deliberately mislead or they are woefully ignorant – you decide which, when they say I’m anti business. We have the highest after-tax corporate profits than any time in the past 80 years. Maybe my opponent’s just jealous because he never got returns like that.”

That kind of stuff, Adam. Describe conditions then, the change to now. Mention Bush only to give him credit. Point out the propaganda lies that some people have heard so often they accept them as fact. Enough detail in the comparisons to make the point, but not too much that people tune out.

Exactly and Obama should make true accusations against Romney that stick.

For example he should accuse Romney of knowing a helluva lot more about the economy and business for starters. Then he should accuse Romney of having eminently more executive experience than Obama. Then he should accuse Romney of being vastly more competent for the job of potus than himself. Then he should accuse Romney as Clinton did of having a “sterling” business career- something O completely lacked. And last he should accuse Romney of having zero experience as an all important community organizer.

“Romney Campaign Bus Drives Circles Around Obama Speech Site Honking Its Horn”

Looks like cons can learn something from tactics of folks like the OWS people and union thugs after all.

Looks more like our country and political system is beginning to resemble Sesame Street instead of the leader of the free world. Grown people should be ashamed when caught acting like kids out in public, especially if it’s in relation to a job as important as the presidency of the US. I wonder if Romney thinks that campaigning for and being president is some big joke…

Adam, I’m not challenging your word as I must have missed your post stating that you often have too much work to do. I must say that you always seem to be here blogging when I come on, must be timing.

Doom — “For example he should accuse Romney of knowing a helluva lot more about the economy and business for starters. Then he should accuse Romney of having eminently more executive experience than Obama. Then he should accuse Romney of being vastly more competent for the job of potus than himself. Then he should accuse Romney as Clinton did of having a “sterling” business career- something O completely lacked. And last he should accuse Romney of having zero experience as an all important community organizer.”

For a salesman, you sure are pitching a lousy advertising campaign.

Thulsa: Or he could accuse Romney of always blaming anyone but his allies in Congress for jobs bills not getting passed. Or of not understanding the average American. Or of trying to take credit for someone else’s success (auto bailout working). And on and on.

I love watching people whine about what the other side is doing during campaign season. Anything goes as long as it’s not illegal imo.

Peadawg: You’d have to remove your blinders to figure that out. I can’t help with that.

You could answer the question or say you just don’t have an answer.
