I’m Sure they Didn’t really Say that…Probably…Maybe…

Imaginary (?) conversation: “Gentlemen, the representative from Mitt Romney is here–”

“Don’t call me that, please, who I’m representing is not important, so long as you know it’s someone who can and will help you. Now, as every CEO gathered at this meeting is aware, if the economy continues to improve, Obama will be elected. If he is, he’ll be freer to limit your ability to engage in gambling as banking, your freedom to pollute and so on–so it’s simple. Don’t hire, don’t expand, don’t invest until after November. Especially DO NOT HIRE.”

“But the economy will go down the tubes and we’ll lose money.”

“Only temporarily. After November we’ll game the playing field so that no matter how badly most of the country is, you’ll all be doing great. But we need to suppress hiring now.”

“Okay, Karl, if you say so–”

“No names, please…”
