Non-millionaires are “losers?”

4 posts / 0 new

Speaker of the House John Boehner thinks people who aren’t worth hundreds of millions of dollars like Mitt Romney are “losers.” Appearing on CNN on Sunday – Boehner defended Romney’s enormous wealth – and argued that it will actually appeal to voters since, “the American people do not want to vote for a loser.”

Maybe we should ask Speaker Boehner what his definition of a “loser” is. Are school teachers who haven’t made millions laying off factory workers losers? What about community organizers who devoted their days to registering voters rather than mergers and acquisitions – are they losers, too? If so – that might explain a lot about what Republicans have been trying to do in the House of Representatives the last year – giving trillions in tax breaks to so-called “winners” – and ripping the social safety net out from under so-called “losers.”

People like "the tan man" think that they've hit a triple when they actually were born on 3rd base.

The "American Dreamsicle" is a turd.

The "Crying Vampire" is a liar.

I had an old "Surf Punks" record, and on the inner sleeve was written a bunch of "surfer terms". Kind of like a surfer dictionary. One of the words was, "A Baehner". That was a sideways boner!

I think it applies here.

How about someone who's been hanging out in bars since they were eight years old, and worked in the private sector only 10 years before becoming a career politician? Are they losers?
