Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) leveled a serious charge against his colleague Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Sunday, accusing the Senate majority leader of lying on the Senate floor when he said he’d heard Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for a decade.

“I’ve been around this town for a while,” Graham told Candy Crowley on CNN’s "State of the Union." “I actually like Harry. But what he did on the Senate floor is so out of bounds. I think he’s lying about it.”

    Of course Reid is lying. Everyone knows that it is just a political maneuver. Actually I heard that Obama was not only married once before Michelle, but that he has had several affairs since he and Michelle got married. I also heard that Barack Obama was bi-sexual and had several different affairs with males. Now I ask you, is it up to me to prove those allegations or would it be up to Obama to prove that he did non of those things. Anyone can throw out an accusation whether it's true or not. The real issue for me is that so many lame brains will believe anything that the Democrats say.

    Just what 10 years is Dingy Harry's mole referring to? The years when Romney was 7 to 17 years old?

    Harry Reid cannot tell the truth, he just talks like the babbling idiot that he is. Only problem is that some people believe him.

    If Mitt Romney had not paid taxes for 10 years, the IRS would have had him in jail by now, or at least annoucing an immediate investigation. By the way, there are only 3 democrat congressmen who have shown 10 years of filed tax returns, and Harry Reid is not one of them

    It isn't good enough for the Dems...they want 10 years (from someone who has yet to be formally announced the Repub candidate).
    Besides, they are creating a diversion, as ususual. This way, the attention isn't on Oblahblah's dismal record.

    Well, you just have to remember that they got away with the same crap in the 2008 election...deflected on Palin with all their lies...while Mr. Charisma ran around yucking it up and Blah blahing about being in all 57 states (gimme a break, they still voted him in). He had no record to run on. All he ever voted when he was my Senator was 'present'... yeah, they think the American people are stupid. Are they wrong?

    apparently you can't see that this man is a colossal failure at everything he does EXCEPT make money off the suffering of others. is this really the type of person this countries needs as president? to say nothing as to how dumb he has to be for not to clean up any issues he might have had with his taxes before announcing his candidacy.

    Romney often is described as a turnaround artist. No better example of that is how he turned a failure into a success with the 2002 Winter Olympics.
    At the time, the Salt Lake Olympics Organizing Committee (SLOC) had paid more than $1 million in bribes to members of the International Olympic Committee to bring the games to Utah. Even before the scandal erupted, the games had a projected shortfall of $397 million. Given the taint, few wanted to sign up as sponsors or support the event.

    He asked Fraser Bullock, one of the seven original partners of Romney’s Bain Capital, to become his chief operating officer.

    “It was in the midst of a scandal, and you only know how dark it was there if you were there,” Bullock says. “It was very dark, because the Justice Department was investigating the organizing committee. Prospective sponsors, nobody would answer the phone. We had a budget deficit, the morale was very low. We were the target of every newspaper and news station.”
    Romney had a modest corner office on the 13th floor of SLOC headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City
    Romney brought to the table “his leadership that was comprised of optimism and undaunted confidence that we would get the job done,” Bullock says.

    Romney brought to the table “his leadership that was comprised of optimism and undaunted confidence that we would get the job done,” Bullock says.

    Romney “can see into a situation very quickly,” Bullock says. “He’s very facile with numbers. He’s got that raw intellect which lays a great foundation. And then he’s combined that with a very significant layering upon layer of education and business experience that has given him now the base from which he can make pretty sound judgments pretty quickly.”

    Romney traveled all over the world to gather support for the Olympics. Meanwhile, he cut back on expenses.

    “He does not tolerate one iota of waste.”

    The board members would hold lavish lunches for themselves. Romney said, “Well, our lunches are now going to be pizza, and it’s going to be a dollar a slice,” according to Bullock. “It saved us tens of thousands of dollars, and it was very symbolic, and people got the message to watch every penny.”

    Romney cut back on frills for the games. He reduced the number of flags to be flown throughout the city and persuaded politicians to come up with funds to pay for some of the decorations.

    Romney’s enthusiasm was infectious, driving the sales people to set an all-time record for Olympic sponsorships. Just as significant when it comes to a presidential run, Romney tamed the press.

    . “He dug right into the security issues.”

    “The question on my mind was, how do I keep a bomb from going off?” Romney tells me. “I’m not going to worry so much about cleaning up after the bomb. I need to make sure it does not go off.


    In the end, ticket sales surpassed those of any previous Winter Olympics. An estimated 2.1 billion people around the world watched the games over 17 days, and the United States won 34 medals.

    Having faced a budget deficit of $379 million when he took over, Romney ended up with a surplus of $56 million. The money went to fund future Olympics.

    When he took the job, Romney said he would accept the offered salary of $250,000 a year only if the Olympics made a profit. When it did, he turned his salary over to charity. In addition, he contributed $1 million to the games.

    “My goal is to make Utah proud, make America proud,” Romney said in accepting the Olympics position. “Sure the managers have messed up big time, but the athletes haven’t, and our job is to
