    Do what? Make a few people rich at the expense of sweatshop labor?

    We've got Republicans for that.

    Tim Cook is opposed to sweatshop labor.

    Maybe with his words, but the profit margins would say otherwise.

    Do you really believe that deep down, Tim Cook just loves sweatshop labor, as if it's a hobby? Obviously, he is a good human being who thinks that sweatshop labor is terrible. Besides, real sweatshop labor doesn't come from Apple, it comes from different companies and industries. As far as Chinese factories go, the conditions of Apple's supplier factories aren't bad at all. Yes, they are unacceptable, but when compared to other Chinese factories, their conditions are pretty good.

    How is it obvious? Mr. Cook is interested in that last cell in the Numbers sheet, that is what matters most to him. That is what mattered most to Mr. Jobs, it is what CEOs do. If it had seriously bothered them, they would have taken real action.

    After all, Mr. Romney was a corporate CEO, do you think that endows him with appropriate whitehouse CEO skills? Seriously, what makes you think Mr. Cook should run the country? What is his platform? Do we need an even more big-business friendly government than we already have?

    Tim Cook is also a gay, nature-loving intellectual.

    Somehow I doubt THAT is going to fly in the heartland. ;)

    Well he'll automatically lose all the southern states then...

    I'm a Republican, and I hardly fall into your stereotype.

    Well, it's not likely that you'd fall into the 1%. Soulless rich businessmen are a subset of (primarily) the Republican party; they're not the whole party.

    As for Cook, I know Apple has promised improvements at Foxconn, but let's see Apple put their money where their mouth is. Then I'll gladly praise him.

    BTW, success in business is not necessarily a qualification for high office. In fact, business success seems more and more to retard the wealthy from understanding what the rest of us are going through. *cough*Romney*cough*

    That's is the problem with most entrenched Republicans, they are too cushy.

    Cushy, far from it. I'm just an average joe that works hard just like everyone else.

    ----------

    Well I wouldn't say primarily, due to the Democratic party having its own set of rich buisnessmen.
