Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney addressed the recent days’ struggles on the east coast this morning.
“We have heavy hearts as you know with all the suffering going on in a major part of our country. A lot of people are hurting this morning,” said Romney. “Not only traders, who are supported by commissions, but just regular every day hedge fund managers and institutional investors. The stock market being closed for two days in a row is absolutely devastating to many. Shucks, I’ve lost a few million since Monday myself. But it’s not about me. It’s about the little guy who may have lost only a couple hundred thousand dollars.”
“Sure, a couple hundred thousand dollars might not sound like much. But that could be a down payment on someone’s a first yacht. Or even just a Lamborghini for someone’s teenage son.”
“President Obama is right about one thing. This is a disaster. Hopefully, he can stop wasting a bunch of money on search and rescues and we can get all of this stuff cleaned up and get the markets open again. That’s what keeps the economy going. Not some silly sand removal or power restoration.”
According to officials, the New York Stock Exchange is aiming to reopen on Wednesday.
