Kid Rock Endorses Mitt Romney Campaign With Song "Cadillac Pussy"??? GOP Contenders' Income

Mitt Romney a good wholesome God-fearing Mormon excited that Kid Rock is endorsing his Campaign. So what Kid Rock song should he use as his campaign theme ??? Maybe "Cadillac Pussy"

Cenk Uygur discusses this rather strange endorsement of Mitt Romney by the crude over the top Xrated Kid Rock.

GOP candidates given their incomes as shown below are all part of the elite 1% though they try to paint themselves disengenuously  as average Americans or at least understand and empathize with the current plight of average Americans from the working poor to the working class and the Middle class.

I have also included a break down of the incomes of President Obama and VP Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. Joe Biden in comparison to Clinton and Obama is almost a pauper.
That makes me think that maybe Biden would have made the better president than either of the fat cats Obama and Hilary.

GOP candidates are all members of the 1% so their policies are bound one way or another to reflect this fact.
So whatever policies they may put forward would have to necessarily be approved by the 1% elite of Wall Street and of the Big Corporations and the thousands of  of Lobbyists in Washington who must be placated by Washington policians.

 Amongst the GOP candidates the only exception to this basic rule is that of Ron Paul.
On certain issues ie foreign affairs and radical religious right social policies is Ron Paul.
Ron Paul rejects America's imperialism policies and prefers a more reasonable and rational form of foreign policies to stop military interventions in other nations and to draw down on America's 1,000 or more military bases.
Paul also wants many domestic issues and socil policies left up to individual states rathe than the US federal government.
Paul has indicated that issues of basic rights and freedoms would still be protected.  
From the point of view of the rest of the world it would be a positive outcome if Ron Paul were to become President of the USA. In that case other nations would no longer leave in fear and aprehension of being bullied or have their internal domestic affairs being interferred with by US military or the CIA and other covert American operators.

Kid Rock Endorses Romney - Where Is Fox News?

Uploaded by TheYoungTurks on Feb 28, 2012

Mitt Romney got an endorsement from Kid Rock who performed at a rally for the 2012 Republican Presidential candidate outside of Detroit, Michigan before a critical Michigan primary. Conservatives were outraged at President Obama over hip-hop artist Common performing at the White House but will they be equally angry over Kid Rock and some of his controversial lyrics and song titles? Will any Fox News host, including Bill O'Reilly, do a segment on this story? The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Mitt Romney: Don't Talk About Income Inequality In Front of the Peasants

Mitt Romney's Tax Returns Show $43 Million Income In Past Two Years,january 24,2012

In releasing details of his tax burden for the past two years, Mitt Romney offered a small window into a vast wealth. The tax records show that the former Massachusetts governor made $42.6 million over the past two years and because most of it came from capital gains, he paid $6.2 million in taxes.

That means that in 2010, his tax rate was 13.9 percent, and in 2011, it's expected to be 15.4 percent, lower than many Americans who pay taxes on wages.

Newt Gingrich income:

Gingrich reveals income, but not how he earned it by Brett J. Blackledge, AP,January 26, 2012

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich beat his main GOP presidential rival, Mitt Romney, to the punch by releasing his most recent tax return. But Gingrich still hasn't revealed how he earned most of his $3.1 million.

The 2010 tax return made public last week shows that $2.4 million, more than three-fourths of Gingrich's income, came in payments he regularly received, in addition to his salary, from different businesses he ran before announcing his candidacy for president. Those businesses managed speaking engagements, appearance fees, consulting work, book and video deals and paid positions that Gingrich held in other groups.

as for the Clintons the same article notes :

Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign has released her 2000-2006 joint tax returns, showing $109.2 million in income over the last seven years.

In 2000, when the Clintons last made their returns public, they reported an adjusted gross income of $416,039. Since then, Bill Clinton alone has made $82 million from just his speech income ($51.85 million) and payments (totaling $29.6 million) from his two books -- "My Life " and "Giving."
