The Smirking Smirkers Smirk

Hey, suckah! Who you be smirkin' at?
Why, I be smirkin' at you!
But you are me...
I know I am but what are you?
No, I'm not! Oh yes you are! Oh, no I am!
uhhhh...I'm so confused!

In the last few days, Mittens has again proven that he is his own worst enemy. He can't help it.
The totally inappropriate and frankly bizarre nature nature of his reaction to the embassy attack in Libya has put his entire party into hyper crazy defense mode. Then there was the little statement earlier this where Mittens, ever the dilettante amateur, tried to prove his manly grasp of foreign affairs by stating that Moscow was the number one geopolitical foe or America. This of course was jumped on immediately by Vladimir Putin, who stated that Romney smirking statement actually helped Russia.
“I’m grateful to him (Romney) for formulating his stance so clearly because he has once again proven the correctness of our approach to missile defense problems,” Putin told reporters, according to the Russian news agency RIA Novosti.

But who is Bishop Mittens really smirking at? You, suckah! Because he believes he is entitled to be President of The United States and it's not really up to you. He will be, at least in his world of Mormon logic, your CEO in Chief by what ever means necessary. Now that he has exploited 2012's September 11th Debacle, take a look at how he exploited September 11, 2001.  Let's have a look at how deep Willard's hunger for power and profit actually goes, shall we?

Endurance Specialty Holdings was one of many insurance and reinsurance startups that cropped up in the wake of 9/11.These companies were designed to purchase debt from insurance companies who faced billions of dollars in claims after the attacks and sold insurance at high prices generated by the soaring rates that resulted from the cash crunch on traditional insurance companies. Mr. Romney was invested in Endurance Specialty Holdings both through Golden Gate Capital, a private equity firm founded by a former Bain Capital executive in 2000 and through his direct interest in another investment firm, CCG Investment Fund, LP.
In documents filed with the SEC ahead of a proposed IPO in late 2002, Endurance Specialty Holdings, which began operations in December 2001, a little over three months after the World Trade Center attacks, boasted about how they were taking advantage of economic opportunities created in the wake of September 11th.
But, but, but...Willard wasn't involved with Bain after 1999, was he? And didn't he have his money in a
blind trust controlled by his close personal friend and lawyer? Yeah, that's not a blind trust, and Mitt knew exactly where his money was, because he was one of the original investors.
Endurance made a ton of money on those September 11th attacks, and so did Mitt Romney. But did he pay any taxes on the profit? Doubtful.

In addition to Endurance’s history of profiting from the September 11th attacks, Mr. Romney’s investment in the company is also interesting because the company was domiciled in Bermuda, though none of its initial investors hailed from the island nation and ten of them came from the United States. In SEC filings,Endurance noted this arrangement ensured it was not “subject to taxes computed on profits or income or computed on any capital asset, gain or appreciation, or any tax in the nature of estate duty or inheritance tax or to any foreign exchange controls.” Throughout this election, the Obama campaign has accused Mr. Romney of using similar offshore investment schemes to avoid paying U.S. taxes.
What a patriot. This is the man who wants to be president, profiteering from a national tragedy and doing so without even paying a dime of taxes on it. Some might call him enterprising. I call it greedy.

Remember, the smirking smirker always smirks at you......
