Matt Taibbi: Mitt Romney behind modern unemployment in America

Iowans have spoken and they have chosen Mitt Romney as their GOP candidate. The Iowa caucus was a tight race and Romney’s lead was very slim; Rick Santorum came in second with just eight votes and Ron Paul came in third. According to some reports, Mitt Romney and his wife are worth approximately $250 million and many believe he won’t have the interest of the average American in mind. Matt Taibbi, contributing editor for Rolling Stone, joins us to discuss Mitt’s millions.

@robertcgage You really need to stop getting your information from foreign-owned "news" corporation like FOX. I understand why FOX hates America and wants desperately for it to fail, but how did they brainwash so many Americans to hate it's greatest leaders while cheering on scum like Murdoch?

The Bush family is related to the Queen. THAT is another ballgame (family assets off the books)

@Akilleez82 You got that right. Rt Rolling Stone and Taibbi are anti neo con but they are still left and anti constitutionalist They cannot promote Ron Paul because they mainstream establishment left wing media) cannot NOT promote the military industrial complex .What is their solution I wonder? They sure do ignore Ron Paul

I remember back in 2008 and in recent years i was telling people that politicians and Wall Street are in bed with eachother and that the Major corporations support and give money to both sides and that it does not matter who is in office because Wall Street influences and controlled both sides. People said i was the crazy one and conspiracy theorist..Well now more people are acting as if this is a shock and want to wake up out of their sleep..I give up on people in this country waking up!

@grownman455 Turns out there's US military bases in New Zealand and Australia… but after some searching, I think Madagascar might be the place to go. It's like a paradise lost in time…

Because of the corporate donations to these political campaigns,that's why I say that voting is a waste of time.

Unsure of Ron Paul’s foreign policies because he is not a military war monger, China /Russia is ready to defend if we INVADE IRAN LIKE WE DID IRAQ, AFGHAN, LIBYA what kind of imbeciles applaud for killings in non declared wars based on WHAT IF. Is America a barbaric fear war monger nation? The world answers back with a loud YES. A vote for Romney, Nuke or Satanorum is a vote for American Obamanation. Money easily prostituted Iowa – Your next PIMP is SELECTED not elected Gullible.

@reb618. Agreed. If it comes to Oblunder vs. Mitt Zombie I am sure as hell not voting.

I'm not a lover of Romney but Obama is no saint either. He's another lying ass politician.

Do a report on which candidate has given most to charity, actual real charities. It will be Romney.

@grownman455 I suppose you think Bill Gates charity work is all for show as well. It must be by your reasoning because he is richer than then all. Romney may have faults and yes he's been successful and mega rich but that's capitalism at work and if you conclude that all rich people are evil and cannot do some good then you need to realise that you're a socialist and not a free market capitalist and keep voting for Obama.

Who REALLY runs our world? search "israel Did 911" and search "ZionCrimeFactory" for proof.
"US Rep. McKinney has accused the pro-Israel Lobby in America (AIPAC, ADL, etc) for ruining her political career.She refused to sign the pro-Israel pledge from Congress and took a pro-Palestinian stance. Because of this, she said “war was declared” on her by them. In 2009 she told TIU's Ognir that “more than 99% of Congress work for Zionist-Israeli interests.”

If RT or Russians are for Ron Paul just come out in support for him. I would think they would be scared shitless what America will do if Obama stays in office or we get one of the other Neocons. Just the American people would need to know why. I avoid using RT even though the info is good people don't believe they are intrested in the truth but have an agenda.

@LordOrlock what kind of stupid ass decision making is that? because he's hated by the media? WTF! No sweetheart I much rather educate myself properly instead of making such important decision on trivial shit like "he's hated by the media" so I'm gonna vote for him. simply stupid. I like Living in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA don't wanna live in the SEPARATED states of the north part of the American Continent…

The real story is, Americans like slavery, because they keep electing these criminals that have no intentions of cutting off their flow of profits, just to appease the slaves, whom they already control like a fine tuned piano. Face it, Americans must like the arrangements, the rich get richer while the rest of the population gets sucked dry, but their not alone, Europe is on the same path, country by country. The cash is all going to a good cause, the Banksters and their minions. Vote BarackMitt

With a 9-percent percent unemployment rate, am I ready for a multimillionaire as a President?

With a 9-percent unemployment rate, I am ready for a President who will help lower the unemployment rate, something the current occupant of the White House seems incapable of doing.

Let's cut away to a comedy show for a quote. LOL, strong reporting. Also this guy is an absolute idiot. Watch him go up against an opposing opinion when he debates Dana Loesch and gets his ass handed to him.

Mitt Romney pushed government funded bread and circuses for the rich in the SLC Winter Olympics, while his family and the most connected guys in Utah cashed in huge on real estate speculation. The cost of housing for working Utah sky rocketed, while real wages tanked in comparison. He is The Church's anointed successor to Orrin Hatch in the U.S. Senate.
