10. If you can't dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle them with your bullshit.

I'm sure the MSM gerbils and Romney backers just accepted that lame-ass alibi and figured that's good enough.

Geez. How do you retroactively retire and absolve yourself from the responsibilities of the position at the same time?

8. I've decided to retroactively retire

ten years ago and to collect all the pension benefits that have accrued over that time. Then I'd like retroactively give myself a raise every year during that period. Finally, I think I'll retroactively return to work for a few more years.

11. How do you say shit like that with a straight face. Even if ....

he "retired", as the the sole stockholder in Bain, if he didn't support the board's decisions, why didn't he change the board?
