Where the Money Lives----------EXCERPT FROM VANITY FAIRS SCATHING ARTICLE ABOUT MITT ROMNEY ..........http://www.vanityfai r.com/politics/2012/08/investi gating-mitt-romney-offshore-ac counts..........For all Mitt Romney’s touting of his business record, when it comes to his own money the Republican nominee is remarkably shy about disclosing numbers and investments. Nicholas Shaxson delves into the murky world of offshore finance, revealing loopholes that allow the very wealthy to skirt tax laws, and investigating just how much of Romney’s fortune (with $30 million in Bain Capital funds in the Cayman Islands alone?) looks pretty strange for a presidential candidate.........EXCERPT FROM ARTICLE ------'Take $10 to $40 million squeezed from a (WORKERS) pension pot, then use that to create new, rosier financial projections to borrow several times that amount, and then pay yourself a big special dividend from the borrowed funds, many times the size of the pension savings. That is just what Bain Capital did.' READ IT AND SEE THE SCOPE OF THE MAN REPUBLICANS GIVE YOU AS THEIR CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT.

Nude with an exaggerated paunch, he's gonna arch his back, and stick out his belly.
I'm not sure if the agreed on pose is to help hide his little penis, or to make hungry people feel bad.

Think about it. What candidate for president -- even a GOP candidate for president -- would pick a guy as a running mate who would only hand over one year of tax returns, as Mitt Romney has done?

And would anybody pick that guy if that one tax return revealed Swiss Bank accounts and more than $30 million in off shore accounts in the Cayman Islands-- especially in an election year when public anger at Wall Street remains so high?

The answer is: no. No presidential candidate in their right mind would pick such a candidate as their running mate.

Forget about the optics, which are bad enough. The simple act of running for president and not closing those accounts beforehand -- and remember, Mitt Romney has been running for president for more than four years -- is so politically stupid that it should be disqualifying all on its own.

Yet in a little more than six weeks, the GOP will nominate as their presidential candidate someone who would not have passed even a cursory vetting for vice president.

How many years of tax returns do you think Romney has asked to see from his vice presidential prospects?

The answer, of course, is more than one.

And what do you think would be a VP prospects’ chance of being picked if, when asked for more than one year of tax returns, they told the Romney campaign: "none of your business?"

That answer is less than zero.

A single year’s tax return, after all, doesn’t give us much of a picture of a candidate. As Mitt Romney's father famously said when he released twelve years of his tax returns when he ran for the GOP nomination in 1968:“One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show.”

But unfortunately for Mitt Romney, the show put on by the one tax return he has released is getting terrible reviews, because that single tax returns raises a number of questions that Democrats and the media aren’t going to stop asking between now and November.

For example, why did Romney invest more than $30 million in places like the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, which are well known as foreign tax havens?

If he hasn’t been trying to avoid taxes, then why have a Swiss bank account?

And if he has nothing to hide, then why is he the only presidential nominee in 30 years to release only a single year of tax returns?

After all, it’s not as though Mitt Romney can’t find his other tax returns.

Just four years ago, Mitt Romney gave the McCain campaign 23 years of tax returns -- and didn't get picked for the VP slot.

John McCain knows why he didn't pick Mitt Romney in 2008. And he may know many of the answers to the questions raised by the release of Mitt Romney’s single tax return in 2012.

The question for voters is: why don't we?

And as Burkesville goes, so goes the Country?

Richard Nixon, and we all know how that administration worked for us.
If Romney is elected, I predict the Nations third impeachment process.

Didn't say that! I just said you and the other Liberals are wasting your time with all this posting and name calling that you are doing. You surely don't think that you can influence the national vote in November. All you are doing is pissing off local voters with all that trash! Take a break!

I find it curious that you seem to think, or at least only state, that just the Liberals are wasting time posting. The way I see the exchanges, is they seem to be generally comedy in nature
(admittedly I often go too far) and most often in response to what I tend to consider absurd assertions. I'm not trying, and don't expect to influence anyone, just shining a light on the same backwards ideals I once possessed myself.
(still registered Republican, just can't live that anymore) Pissing people off was my intent, and I will admit, I find it entertaining at times. If by "take a break" you were proposing a mutual cease-fire, I oblige anyone who agrees to or will abide by one (TNBLOWFLY, tell them if you're listening,we have mutual respect since our understanding) I will never though, just turn a deaf ear to the ridiculous, its just too easy, and too much fun!

What militia says is true. Some of us on here push the envelope a bit at times and militia & I have a mutual respect despite the fact that we differ in opinion. Despite the fact that militia is wrong :), and that obama is a train wreck for this nation, I respect his right to be wrong. Others like assfly and nutjob, well it is so easy to raise their blood pressure that I can't resist. You see when they stroke out, which is only a matter of time, there will be 2 less sheeple to vote obama back in for another term of nation destruction.

Howdy Fly, how are things? Did you see the look on Mitts face yesterday? Thanks for the words, but your boy wouldn't agree to terms, and one thing I've learned in all my years is,
NO QUARTER!
You and I will never be able to resist backhanding an opponent, I like that quality in you. Listen, I know I was wrong in 91, but I WON!
I think I will again. Bush made chumps of us when he gave it all back, and I can never forgive.
I never dipped our flag, but the bastard tried to make me bow my head, NEVER! I had to make a change, but it is still America first!
Win or lose we gotta stay a watchdog.

My attitude about posting is like the Christian philosophy,
everyone shall hear the word.

If they don't have a chance to read anything from the other side, they will never know the truth and will always be taken advantage of by the republicans' motto of, "That's the way it is, that's the way it's always been, that's the way it always will be."

Haven't you ever wondered why this area would still be living in the dark ages similiar to the 1950's? Ignorance breeds drug abuse and laziness.

I know people such as you think the democrats are keeping people on the welfare rolls to get their votes, but check out the statistics around the nation, where whites are concentrated in the poorest areas, they are always republican controlled.
