The demand for my first episode of “FACQ” was so immense, I thought I’d do a follow-up.
Q: “So what do you think about Mitt’s “Swiss Bank Account”?
A: “Fascinating. Are you better off than you were four years ago?”
Q: “Mitt made his money by short-selling America!”
A: “Speaking of short-selling – how does the value of your house compare to four years ago?”
Q: “Is it moral that Mitt short-sold America?”
A: “He didn’t – that’s a narrative repeated by people who don’t understand the term, intended for and repeated by others who also don’t have a clue. Short-selling is a way of creating wealth out of the process of creative destruction. It in turn creates more capital to create more jobs. Speaking of jobs – are you better off than you were four year ago?
Q: “People don’t like Mitt Romney”
A: “You know what people like less? Being out of work. Did you see last Friday’s jobs report? Most of us are doing much worse than we were four years ago!”
Q: “Hahahaha! Obamacare is constitutional!”
A: “We’re working on it. Now – are you better off than you were four years ago?”
Q: “Mitt’s wife rides a horse!”
A: “I bet the horse is the only one who’s better off than he was four years ago. Speaking of which – are you better off than you were four years ago?”
More as conditions warrant.
