Mitt Romney - My Fake Diary

Thursday, 9 August 2012

I want to just enter some notes now about how I plan to add 12 million jobs to the U.S. economy. I mean, it's time for me to figure all this out. I'm a business icon, after all; a veritable one-man, company-producing, job-manufacturing machine.

Getting my calculator out now. OK. Let's look at the typical McDonald's store. If you figure it's open 24 hrs per day, and there are 6 full-timers in the store per shift, that's 24 full-time jobs per store.

Now if I, Mitt Romney, personally start 500,000 new stores, that's 12 million jobs right there! Hey--maybe this isn't so tough. OK--thinking here. 500,000 stores seems like it might be a lot, though if you divide that by 50 states...using the calculator here...that's only 10,000 stores per state. (Wonder if we can add more states?)

You see the thing that's good about McDonald's stores is that they can't really be outsourced overseas, so there won't be any temptation on my part to do that. I mean, people can call India, but they really can't get there on the way to work in the morning. That's a point I can bring up in the debates.

Plus, if I get more people to eat at McD's then it's clear that we'll see an economic stimulus in that more pork, eggs, OJ, and grains will be needed. That bodes well for my speculator buddies on the CME. It'll all be good. I know this is going to work out!
