He's a guy who goes through life getting what he wants because he has money. He's knows how to get money, even if it means crushing people by cheating and lying.

Mitt doesn't care where China or Iran is on the map. He just knows the monetary benefits of holding the positions he does.
It's all about money, nothing else.
