George W. Bush will give a speech on investing in the Cayman Islands right before the election
Death and Taxes ^ | ‎Sep 27, 2012‎ | Alex Moore

Posted on 09/28/2012 8:35:21 AM PDT by Colonel Kangaroo

Former president George W. Bush isn’t exactly doing Mitt Romney any favors on the messaging front. As the current face of the Republican party, Mitt’s single biggest challenge has been distancing himself from his image as a business tycoon who got rich by outsourcing American jobs and then keeping big chunks of his fortune in Swiss bank accounts and invested in the Cayman Islands.

On election week, George W. will rub the sketchy Cayman Islands playboy image right in Mitt’s face.

BuzzFeed points out that W. will give the keynote address to the Cayman Islands Alternative Investment Summit, which goes down on Grand Cayman Island November 1-2, less than a week before the presidential election. The other keynote speaker will be the UK’s most famous billionaire playboy, Virgin’s Richard Branson, who owns his very own island not so far from Grand Cayman.

The Summit’s site says the event “will bring together the world’s leading institutional investors, fund managers, academics, economists and regulators in the Cayman Islands—the world’s leading domicile for investment funds—to discuss and debate the fundamentals of a vibrant future for the alternative investments industry.”

To most Americans, this is a pretty simple equation: “Cayman Islands” + “alternative investments” = “sketchy.”

George W’s Cayman keynote is just the latest in a long string of reminders about Romney’s ultra-rich status and possibly sketchy behavior— and he’s not getting a lot of help from the people around him.

Just last week former GOP candidate Tim Pawlenty left Rommey’s campaign in a high-profile departure to become a lobbyist for the banking industry, and promptly said that banks should just be allowed to regulate themselves. Last week Romney released his 2011 tax returns which showed him paying a 14% tax rate, and if the hackers who claim to have stolen his earlier records weren’t bluffing and haven’t been paid a ransom, they may release even more of Romney’s returns tomorrow.

Accidental or not, somehow the messaging around Mitt’s millions seem to be the most consistent the GOP is able to construct around Romney.

Probably wont have the effect that gleeful Democrats expect, but still not good timing by W right before a close election.

Bush again?

Bush flooded the country with millions of illegals, Muslims, and foreigners, made U.S. citizenship all but pointless, left the borders to become a violent war zone, bailed out the banks and then he gives speeches investing in the Cayman Islands.

Never forget this guy...

Romney should use it as a talking point: Under the current management in our country, the Caymans are a better place to put your money.

Why not...Under Bush hundreds of thousands of our jobs and businesses went to Communist China, while he flooded our country with Muslims and low wage illegals. Boy, that sure worked out well.

I'd like to send Bush to the Caymans, along with his tens of millions. Put him on a raft.

Another in a long line of brilliant political statements and moves by the Bushies. Their dynasty has done more to undermine the house that Reagan built than Reid and Pelosi together.

Yeah, but Gore? Yuck and even worse Kerry? I might vote for Ronmey, I will hate myself for it but Obama again? The USA simply can’t not do 4 more years of Obama. I skipped the top last time, vote McCain was just to much to ask of this conservative.

Exactly. And phrase it as a question to Obama at the debates.

I wouldn't expect GWB to help Romney much. If he loses, it's Jeb's Turn in 2016.

When I get disgusted by something from Romney and tempted to vote for somebody like Goode, I think of the Democrats' embrace of the Sodom and Gomorrah agenda. In the end, I think that and not economics or national defense will cast my vote for Romney.

Of course, Ryan just endorsed the new social engineering in the military. They're making it hard on us.

It has to be said. If I had the option of my money paying for the Muslim Brotherhood, the GSA, gun-walking and Mooch’s vacations or stashed in the Cayman Islands...

I’m going with the Caymans.

For a good idea of how the Bushes feel about Reagan-type principles of small government and individual empowerment look no further than GW's comments during the primaries running up to the 1980 election.

Seems sort of fitting in a way.
As far as I know Romney has never said that he disagrees with anything GWB did, giving the impression that he (GWB) is Romney’s role model. This could be pure loyalty but I doubt it. So here GWB jumps in and reminds voters of those great eight years, so Obama doesnt have to,

These events seem to be aligning to kill Romney’s chances.

Exactly right. We would never have had Clinton elected if the Globalist Bush41 would have governed as Conservative as Reagan.

Every President since Reagan has been hard core statist on the domestic front. Our Republic is being destroyed by these evil globalist politicians.

Under Bush, taxes were cut, and more than hundreds of thousands of jobs were created for Americans. Bush is a pro-life patriot who supported our military and took the battle to the Moslems. I agree with you that he was too nice to the ChiComs and the illegals at the Rio Grande. And he was way too nice to the Democrats. But there's just no comparison between GW and what went before him and came after him.

Romney is in PA saying that budget cuts will cost a lot of jobs, while the Dems say all you have to do is make a deal to raise taxes on "the rich" so we can continue spending. I think neither side has the guts to control spending, and if they did, there might be enough voters who want to protect their "Obama Money" to destroy any party that actually would stop the fiscal bleeding.

If it’s legal to put your money in the Caymans, why is there anything wrong with doing it? If people have a problem, they should criticize whoever makes it legal, not the people who take advantage of it. Have Obama, Pelosi and Reid done anything to change the laws about putting money in the Caymans? Why do they get a free pass from people who are against it then?

I think Bill Clinton's Romney's role model. He seems to praise him all the time, including his DNC speech. Romney could perhaps try to counter the dishonest points Clinton made in the speech, but instead he's done nothing but praise it and say Obama's lucky to have Clinton speak on his behalf.

I don’t know about this...seems to me, and from conversations I’ve had with folks...compared to this f***ing clown we have right now, a lot of folks are downright NOSTALGIC for Dubya.

Even if he had some messed up policies, a lot of people still believed he was decent guy - especially after watching our current Affirmative Action appointee and his big mouth wife.

Might not be a bad thing after all.

We’ll see in November....

RE :”Romney is in PA saying that budget cuts will cost a lot of jobs, while the Dems say all you have to do is make a deal to raise taxes on “the rich” so we can continue spending

The budget cuts that the Boehner House rammed through.

Taxing the rich (the R opposition to) as a response to proposed budget cuts is a populist idea and somewhat effective. The fact that it doesnt collect much revenue or that Obama didnt want to do it till Boehner took over doesnt seem to make it less effective. That is why GWB and T Delay gave everyone candy, not tax increases and no cuts. Tax cuts and spending increases both together keep everyone happy.

As I say, Romney is a walking living ad for taxing the rich. He is the wrong person for this. Dems couldnt have wished up anyone better.

All your solid always vote R REPUBLICAN folks? That might be like polling only the members of Rush 24/7. That would be a bad method. I have yet to meet one person who voted for Obama who today says he will vote for Romney. They could stay home though.

I dont know if you are really serious about this or just making a point about hating O.
But GWB is the kiss of death, that is why they let him no-where near the RNC, while Obama used Clinton as the model picture to sell voters to vote for him. I dont even have to get into Bush specifics to show that, the R party does it for me. Clinton is the Dem (lib)Reagan, GWB is the R Carter.

It sounds like you think all these polls are fiction and that Romney would be elected if it was held today.

I doubt Bush talking to some jerks on an island will make any difference one way or the other.

I hate his guts but I’m ready to give him a third term right now. Bush is pretty much Romney I guess, maybe he’s a little more competent at the cost of being less conservative on abortion and gays, they seem to be the same inept communicators.

I just want his imperial bombastity Queen Baraq gone and his supporters in tears. I want to see the tears.

I’m thinking about the future not the past. If Romney effs up as bad as Bush there is no good outcome. 4 more of Clinton wasn’t a good outcome and didn’t work out to the advantage of congressional Republicans because the economy was good and people liked the son of a itch and thought it was cool how he got head in the Oval Office. Scalia and Thomas are old, if one of them croaks, oh boy. Even if it’s a GOP Senate it will have Brown and Kirk and Collins and Murkowski and the rest don’t have to stones to fillibuster for 4 years.

Re congress though I’m bullish on 2014 no matter who is President. The 2014 Senate map is bad for democrats, even if they hold it this time they lose seats in 2014, and they aren’t gonna win back all those conservative seats they had to have to control the House so that will be hard for them as well, they aren’t even trying to take it this time, they know they can’t, House elections are what the GOP put it’s A-game efforts into. They have to hope their magic “brown wave” comes in.

But anyway forget that, that’s not why I want Obama to lose who cares about that analytical stuff, I’m petty. I want to DRINK the tears of schoolchildren who’s parents made them love Obama.

HATE HATE HATE HATE, I don’t care if Romney destroys the country. I don’t want to see Queen Barry, I don’t want to hear his voice. Let Alec Baldwin be unhappy for a couple months.

That's the way I see it, at least at the present time.

It sounds like you think all these polls are fiction and that Romney would be elected if it was held today.

Even Rasmussen shows Romney behind overall, and Rasmussen also has Obama ahead in Ohio, Virginia, and Florida, though not by much.

A major component of the hope for Romney is the debates, and I predicted that we will have a better idea after they are over. However, some of Romney's statements, like the recent one that budget cuts will cause job losses, may trip him up. Of course, Obama has made plenty of idiotic statements, but apparently, the same standards don't apply to him.

Although recent Presidential elections have conformed to poll averages pretty well, unlikely events occur once in a while.

“..It sounds like you think all these polls are fiction and that Romney would be elected if it was held today...”

No, not saying that at all, bro.

I’m just saying that whole country isn’t on Free Republic, and not everybody thinks Bush was a bad President.

I hear comments from people all the time to the effect that “Well, I wasn’t crazy about Bush, but THIS guy is a mess...”

“..GWB is the R Carter...”

Yeah, to some folks he is. But like I said, there’s a lot of people that thought he was a decent guy that made some stupid decisions, if somewhat “dim” (as the media painted him 24-7-365).

Compared to, say Reagan, no.

When Bush left, the Dems were controlling the purse strings - Senate and House - and crashed the housing market.

Then they successfully blamed what WASN’T Bush’s fault - as well as what was - on him; and their little media trolls were ripping him to shreds 24-7, round the clock. Which is glaringly absent now with our clown in chief.

He never fought back. Which again pissed me off. I can’t stand that. At least have surrogate attack dogs out there that will go after the guys. He didn’t.

Yeah, he gave us the TSA, Homeland Security, etc., etc., and the things I feared would happen - i.e., a whack-job Demo Marxist getting control of that apparatus - did happen.

I know you can’t stand the guy, but I just don’t have THAT level of hatred towards him.

Especially in light of THIS POS.

That's what I was thinking when I voted for him 4 times (twice for gov. and twice for POTUS).

But if he is/was pro-life, why would he join the Kennedy gang, twisting arms to give (via amnesty) voting rights to 10s of millions who would vote overwhelmingly for pro-abortion (not to mention other leftist qualities) candidates?

RE :”When Bush left, the Dems were controlling the purse strings - Senate and House - and crashed the housing market.

This is exactly the type of GOP talk that makes me dread another Republican POTUS, especially Romney. Every time a R repeats these exact same excuses I think "No fing way again". They are so similar to Os excuses.

So Bush had NO responsibility for the economy after his 8 years?? HUMM. But you hold O responsible after only his first 2 years? You really buy that?

Oh, but in his 7th year GWB lost ‘the congress’ so he has NO responsibility for his 8, You mean like Obama lost his congress after only two years???. Obama is using thosesame excuses which sound exactly like yours (GOP standard points) for GWB: "Its all the Rs fault, I lost the congrss, BLA-BLA-BLA", man its the same song played backwards.

And how exactly did the Pelosi house crash GWBs so called rosy economy in 2007 and 2008 with Bush having a veto and Reid NOT having 60 in the Senate? Did they raise taxes, cut spending?

Look , NO-ONE who is honest with themselves will ever buy such contradictory arguments, never! The majority of voters would never buy such nonsense, and it has NOTHING to do with the biased media.

Is this the GOP vision of a Romney POTUS? Another sea of implausible excuses that only apply to the Rs? Well I want NO part of that again.

You mean like Romney ‘our savior’ has refused to fight back while Obama tore him apart for 6 months? This is the man of the hour?

RE :”I know you can’t stand the guy(GWB) , but I just don’t have THAT level of hatred towards him.

Bad approach. My arguments are logical and MORE important they are consistent. Consistency is a great way to tell if someone is making up a world that doesn't exist.
I don't make up a completely different set of rules and logic depending on their party name. If GWB had NO responsibility after 8 then there is no fing way Obama can be responsible after only 2, then 4. Those Bush defense arguments ARE great arguments FOR Obama a re-election.

So Dems ruined Bush's great Home loan policies like these ??? :

Early in George W. Bush’s first administration, a home ownership initiative was introduced, sometimes referred to as the Blueprint for the American Dream, to close the homeownership gap by 5.5 million minority families. Along with this homeownership initiative, there were other policies implemented to dismantle barriers to homeownership in minority communities.” from :
The Great American Mortgage Scam & The Latino Community

GWB 2002 Speech :”More and more people own their homes in America today. Yet we have a problem here in America because fewer than half the Hispanics and African Americans own their own homes. That’s a home ownership gap; a gap that we got to work together to close. And by the end of this decade we’ll increase the number of minority homeowners (future Obama voters ) by 5.5 million families. “
“One of the major obstacles to minority home-ownership is financing. Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac (who I will bail out in 2008) have committed to provide more money for lenders, they committed to meet the shortage of capital available for minority home-buyers. Freddie Mac just began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers (like income requirements) and create better opportunities for home-ownership. One of the programs is designed to help families with bad credit histories to qualify for home ownership loans (by faking their income) . You don’t have to have a lousy home for first time home-buyers. You put your mind to it the first time low income home buyer can have just as nice a house as anyone else (till those adjustable rates go up). “

RE :”dang, done got ole SOL on a roll...hehehehe....

Every time.

2008 after being duped by GWB and GWB loyalists and apologists (his first term mainly) I swore I would NEVER let Rs re-write his history, regardless of their ulterior motives.
When I said never I mean NEVER. Such Intellectual dishonesty is what GOT us the Marxists in power and made the GOP a national joke.

I will never support a party that believes that those years were a success and they are all victims, that aint Reagan, that is a party of losers.

RE :”Under Bush, taxes were cut, and more than hundreds of thousands of jobs were created for Americans. Bush is a pro-life patriot who supported our military and took the battle to the Moslems. I agree with you that he was too nice to the ChiComs and the illegals at the Rio Grande. And he was way too nice to the Democrats. But there's just no comparison between GW and what went before him and came after him.”

You live in a fictional world. GWB was a complete disaster, He left this country after 8 years in a huge MESS and gave us the Obama/Pelosi Obama-care and other crap they passed. McCain may have been a loser but GWB gave a losing hand.

GWB is a large factor (obviously not the only reason) why the R party went from a Reagan legacy of winners to the current pathetic party of victim whiner losers. “Oh its so unfair” is the best they can come up with. Give me a break.

I take it back I would not vote for the proven horrible failure even to stop O'Bama.

I still "support" his cousin Milt though even though they may be identical cousins. I'm silly.

How about if Obama pulls a Grover Cleveland, loses and runs again in 2016 saying he was robbed, robbed!! Cause this is so much fun we just have to do it again!
