A slot previously held by a certain Home Depot founder who’d better step his shit up next time he’s on CNBC.

“I think people are getting to know the real Mitt Romney. I am thrilled that that is happening. He is really quite a guy. He is, in my opinion, intellectually and morally and managerially the man that is most qualified by far to be president of the United States. You’re having a guy this afternoon that is a great hero of mine, but Mitt Romney is even better than Ken Langone…I think the campaign is going good. I think Governor Romney is really getting the American people to see the real Romney. That is what we have needed all along. I wish his family would expose itself more…I’d like to see Mrs. Romney, I would like to see the boys out and all of that more.”

    "Hi Mitt, it's me…"

    "I can't trust a man who doesn't drink, because a man who doesn't drink doesn't trust himself."

    He probably thinks Cloud Atlas is going to be a good movie, too.

    "I wish his family would expose itself more."

    There's a decent joke in there somewhere but I'm too hungover to really look for it.

    Caption: 1) "In the beginning there were two candidates." 2) "Then there was a debate." 3) "And now there's only one candidate."

    Do you think he meant that to apply to the buyside more generally?

    I wonder if Julian updated Mitt on foreign policy for the debate, as a man who owns an entire corner of New Zealand he is clearly in touch with the pulse of the world stage.

    Why is he referring to Mrs. Romney's breasts as "the boys?"

    also, wanting to "see the boys out and all of that…" was pretty dirty too…

    He probably thought your shitty joke was funny

    Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney would be another person who's a hero. The jobs he's created over the years, I don't really know much about it, but the fact that he's creating them, I respect that.
