Category → Private Equity Economy Doing Very Well

What Obama Meant To Say Was -- The Private Equity Economy -- and the Wall Street Bankers -- Are Doing Fine!

By Tony Petramonico -- Now it wasn't so long ago -- or should we start by saying, "Once upon a time in a Republican campaign fairy tale, during the time out for the Gaffe of the Day moment from Romney -- he said, and I quote -- "The poor are fine -- they have their programs and things."  To be accompanied by, "I like firing people!"  We bet you do Mitt.  If only we lived in a country where you could legally eat one of your multiple wives -- immediately after having unprotected sex with her  -- or eat one of your children -- I bet you'd like that, too!   Of course, first, you would need to loan the child to come to you and ask to borrow money to go to college -- like you recommended -- and then you eat them -- in order to avoid loaning them money for school.  That's what rich would do, isn't it.  Eat their young, if it would create -- or save -- more assets for them to compound daily.   And of course, it would be silly to eat your young after they finished college -- because then you would already have wasted your money -- and you wouldn't have your indentured servant either. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      . Yeah, it's not often that President Obama steps on it -- but he's human (er, make the Kenyan) -- and when you give as many public speeches as he does, it is inevitable that sooner or later a random synapse firing is going to create a "talk-out" moment for you.  And it is pretty easy to understand why he was thinking the private economy is doing pretty good -- Wall Street-wise, speaking. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        . And anyway -- even if he made two Joe Biden class gaffes a week -- Romney would still have him beat by at least 2 to 1 -- Romney just can't talk and think at the same time.  Never has been able too.  And -- he does his best thinking when he has a very sharp pencil in his hand.  Or as Mitt calls it -- his super-computer. .                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       . Let's face it - when Mitt Romney make political calculations -- he uses a slide rule.
