Comb-over king Donald Trump slammed GOP Presidential contender Mitt Romney‘s business credentials Sunday, claiming he’s a better businessman.

Trump, who may or may not seek the GOP Presidential nomination in 2012, told CNN’s “State of the Union” that he has a “much, much bigger net worth. I mean my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney.”

Romney, Trump says, is just  a “small business guy”  while the real estate developer and reality show star known as “The Donald” claims he’s created thousands of jobs and built a “great company.”

Romney, a former venture capitalist with a record of turning around failing companies, helped launch the Staples office supply chain and bought Domino’s Pizza.

The former Massachusetts governor has  invested more than $40 million of his own money in the 2008 race.

    Trrump noted that “He has a “much, much bigger net worth. I mean my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney.”

    Translation: “Mine is bigger than yours”.

    Noted Columnist George Will correctly describes Donald Trump as a “Blatherskite”…a person who blathers promiscuously without saying anything of substance.

    And Trump’s mere presence (alongside the likes of such other, far-right wing-nuts as Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee ) in any Republican debate will most assuredly guarantee Mr. Obama of another four year term.

    How many times has Trump or one of his business entities been in bankruptcy?

    Trump has filed for bankruptcy four times. Romney to my knowledge, never.

    Actually, allow me to clarify: Trump filed for bankruptcy on his business in 1991, 1992, 2004 and 2009. Way to go Donald!

    Perhaps we need someone with experience in bankruptcy considering where we are heading fiscally.
