Mitt Romney's campaign is in trouble. With the growing revelations of Romney's involvement in Bain Capital's "pioneering efforts" in outsourcing American jobs, the significant discrepancies between Romney's story and the numerous SEC filings that contradict that story, his adamant insistence on secrecy about his own tax returns, his Cayman Islands and Swiss bank accounts that exist only to evade paying taxes to the very government he seeks to lead, and the glaring disconnect with the average working American that Romney exhibits at every campaign stop, some have already begun to wonder whether Romney will make it to the Republican convention. If in fact the heat gets to be too much for Mitt, who do you think the Republicans will choose in his place? Who will be the sacrificial lamb?

    Since we know that Obama and his crew have lied about Bain - why the hell would he step down? The rank gutter politics of Obama is sickening - he should step down.

    Obama can't even run on his own failing record now! So he needs the Bull Sh** factor to keep the voters eyes off the real issues now instead

    LOL you know, lying to the Securities and Exhange Commission, hiding his tax returns, millions in offshore accounts to evade paying his taxes, investing in companies that profit from disposing of aborted fetuses, all the fun stuff like that.

    Do you believe that Romney is guilty of a felony with respects to reports given to the SEC?
  • Singerar Rusty S... 2012/07/17 07:13:56
    I haven't read the SEC filings yet, so I can't answer that.

    I would say Ron Paul. He already has a base with a lot of supporters. He's the most palatable of the others. Rice won't want it. Cain is a joke. Sarah Palin is a quitter and would only be in it for the star power. Michele Bachmann is just plain dumb. Trump is an ass. Gingrich has no class at all. Santorum will loose the entire women's vote. Jeb Bush, no way not another Bush.
    I always liked Colin Powell but he is a bit tarnished because of his association with the Bush administration's lying to the United Nations about weapons of mass destruction.

    Funny thing about Jeb is senior always thought it would be him running and not Dubya. Kind of sheds a light on the whole Dubya presidency. It always amazed me that folks didn't really notice how his own father never really got out there and supported him. Saw an interview with senior before the 2000 elections and the interviewer specifically questioned him about. The first thing out of his mouth was along the lines of "well, first, I never expected him to run for president. I always thought it would be Jeb". He then went on to say something about maybe in 4 or 8 years, and how he really didn't think it was appropriate for a former prez to endorse a candidate.

    Too bad there isn't a Bain scandle, Nothing compared to the Retorical BS coming out of the LWNJ's mouths. However America is more concerned with how the Economy, jobs are doing. This is just another smoke screen to take you mind of the Failued polies of BHO
    This has been proven to be lies again and again you the frelly clueless nuts like the poster ofthis question doen't even see that with 100 million in Negitive ads , Romney is still even with him in the polls. People want results, not failure and thats what they get with Barry

    nope required by law. You really should pay attention to what the liberal stations are saying. Even they agree Obama is lying. Educate yourself, goggle it

    There is no evidence that Mitt Romney exercised his powers at private equity firm Bain Capital after 1999 or directed funds’ investments after leaving, The New York Times reported.

    Although some documents place the Republican presidential hopeful in charge of Bain from 1999 to 2001, a period in which the company outsourced jobs and ran companies that fell into bankruptcy, it is not related to who was running Bain at the time, the Times reported.
    "If they didn’t show them on those filings, they would have broken the law. But it has nothing to do with who’s actually running Bain Capital,” Pitt added.

    Financial disclosures filed in Massachusetts back up Romney’s case and show that he drew at least $100,000 in 2001 from Bain as a “former executive” and from other Bain entities as a passive general partner, according to the Times
    The newspaper also pointed to an offering memorandum to investors in a Bain equity fund that was circulated in June 2000 and suggests Romney was not involved in the management of investments. The memorandum lists backgrounds on 18 managers, or “senior private equity investment professionals of Bain Capital,” and Romney is not among them.

    And already shown to be all perfectly legal, I know you turn off the news when that part comes on. As long as the failure gewt reelected. If you would look at Obama like you look into Mitt, you wouldn't vote for him. His record, SUCKS

  • aherbert MsTLynne 2012/07/17 02:27:03
    No they are not lies however, Mittens is hiding his wealth and most likely the fact that he out sourced jobs, evaded paying taxes ...

    There is no Bain scandal. It's been debunked but the leftwing media knows people are too stupid to find the truth.
