Of course, Siegel isn't the only conservative to predict economic doom if Obama won re-election. Among others were Mitt Romney, who argued that unemployment would be stuck above eight percent, and Donald Trump, who foresaw a crash in the stock market.

this man is not a good guy, however. Read how much money he has and wastes on his extravagant selfish expenditures.

Noted. Seems viable to continue taxing the wealthiest at a higher rate since they're making so much profit; and many are using it for stock buybacks.

Of course millionaires and especially billionaires, should get off their asses, and instead of e-mailing them, go visit them all, face to face, and see they're real people.

Thanks for this Carrie - and how typical of this type of man is the behavior shown in the first paragraph. The only unusual thing is that now he is giving wage rises!

"Of course, Siegel isnt the only conservative to predict economic doom if Obama won re-election. Among others were Mitt Romney, who argued that unemployment would be stuck above eight percent, and Donald Trump, who foresaw a crash in the stock market. Since November 2012, the unemployment rate has dropped to 5.8 percent while the stock market has jumped 4,500 points to record highs."

90,000 square foot mansion? I had to read that twice. He'll need a golf cart to get from one end to another. And he's raising wages to $10 an hour, wow, what a guy. He's practically giving it away. But still mostly to himself. I suppose the apology for his earlier misspeaking will be forthcoming? From all those who predicted doom and gloom? The fact is the President foiled them all despite NO help whatsoever from republicans in either House.

Yeah. It's also been reported in the English press how the CEOs of financial institutions are paying themselves multimillion pound bonuses, despite many of lower incomes suffering.

All these folks who claimed to know the future, are,were, full of BS, especially the Donald thing!
Given the state of the economy, I remain flabbergasted that the GOPigs won the senate.
In the cartoon, I anticipate Plato telling Rove to go back to the cave of shadows, to stop encouraging imbecility and eat Hemlock!

Freya is right: let Siegel, Trump, Romney, etc. eat crow.
