My view is that establishment media backs Romney on the tax avoidance and private capital stuff because a lot of establishment types have a lot of money and don’t like the idea of anyone scrutinizing other rich people’s finances. Also too, they work for companies that engage in all kinds of financial shenanigans, of course.
I’m not the first person to touch on Glenn Kessler’s super-wealthy background:
Kessler is a great-grandson of Jean Baptiste August Kessler, who was largely responsible for the growth and development of the Royal Dutch Shell (Shell Oil Company) and a grandson of Geldolph Adriaan Kessler, who helped create the Dutch steel industry.
I wonder, and I don’t mean this in a malicious way, would it be fair to ask Kessler to reveal his own financial situation? Does he have a trust fund that benefits from tax loopholes?
I honestly would like to know.
