Prokhorov Running for Prez of Russia Makes Mitt Seem Poor

You think Mitt Romney makes a lot of money? Check out this presidential candidate; Mikhael Prokhorov.

Okay, he’s running for President of Russia; but that’s a big country country too.(Land mass 1.74 times larger than the one that Romney wants to president of.)

Just like his rich American counterpart, Prokhorov recently submitted a financial statement. So let’s compare.

In 2010 Romney reported income of $21.6 million. That’s not bad. I’d swap 1040’s with him. Then again, candidate Prokhorov did even better. In the last four years he made $3.12 billion. (According to RT.com)

That would be more.

Sure, we’re not comparing apples to apples. Prokhorov took four years to make his billions, but c’mon. If Prokhorov and Romney both win, the U.S. will only have the second richest president. Photo Source RT.com

Of course it’s no slam dunk that Prokhorov will win, even if he does own the New Jersey Nets (NBA Basketball). He’s running against a guy named Vladimir Putin. Putin can’t go one on one against Prokhorov’s personal wealth, but in the game of politics, the Russian Prime Minister can. and will. throw an elbow as well as hard as anybody.
