"I can retroactively amend my tax returns and send checks to the IRS?" said Romney, discussing the startling space-time development from Ed Gillespie.

MithrandirBooga: abb3w: And the chorus calling for the tax returns now includes RINOs like Bill Kristol and George Will.


Here's what I worry about. What if Romney only released one year of returns so that he would create a controversy by making it look like he's hiding something, knowing full well that Obama would eventually jump on that. He could let it stew for a few days once it hits the media, letting it blow up into this huge thing, then he magically releases the returns one day, only to reveal... nothing,

It would instantly derail any momentum Obama had and make him seem toothless, creating a big stir over nothing at all, and making it that much harder to trust any future attacks that Obama may launch.


Granted, this is attributing great mental attributes to an apparent automaton that speaks phrases like "Lemon, Wet, Good", but just suppose, for one minute, that he accidentally had a stroke of genius?


Except for the fact that he's still admitting he committed perjury not only on paperwork turned into the SEC but also to the commission in Massachusetts. We're not talking misdemeanors or even minor felonies here. We're talking about 20+ years in PMITA.

Unless, of course, the Obama campaign say something on the lines of "We'd like to publicly thank the Romney campaign for finally following the example his father set regarding tax returns. We're still wondering when he'll be presenting an internally consistent account of his time at Bain capital."

Waxing_Chewbacca: I doubt it's disqualifying (what would be? A felony.)


Possibly something showing that the bulk of his current holdings are invested in China.
Or maybe major investment links to Iran.

But yeah, hard to be outright disqualifying.

Or conversely, Obama is hitting hard on this hoping that Romney is forced to release more tax returns. Obama likely has had access to the returns produced during the McCain vetting and knows that there are more problems for Mitt. If Mitt releases returns that don't match up it's a game changing scandal.

So Obama has the space thing all wrapped up with his teleportation abilities (see thread from earlier today).

And Romney has the time thing all wrapped up with his ability to retroactively resign.

The question you gotta ask yourself is, punk: Do you feel that Obama or Romney has better command of Relativistic Physics?

hinten: How bad is it when they investigated him and chose Palin over him?
Did he kill someone or just his dog?


To be fair, Palin had just as much dirt under her fingernails if not more. Her selection was a craven attemp to appeal to disgruntled Clinton supporters, and not an indication of a superior candidate.

That being said, I think McCain wanted Lieberman as his running mate originally so...Romney didn't even earn runner up in that beauty contest.

Clowns are a Ten: Mitt Romney was for working at Bain before he was against it.

What's so hard to understand? Farking libtards.


Shame this isn't still the primary. I'd like to hear Rick Perry's response to all this.

"Is it the same Mitt Romney that was against....was working for Bain, before he was retired from, before he was retroactively working....working for...Bain from the respect that he was FOR working for Bain before he was retroactively retired from, from against from Bain?"
 
2012-07-15 06:01:26 PM
Here's a video of Mitt saying "I worked at one company, Bain, for 25 years."

He started in 1977, so 25 years means 2002. Oopsie!

And before you say "hey he was just rounding off to the closest 5".... consider this: a) if he left in 1999, it would be 22 years, and b) in the VERY same sentence he sayshe's been married for 42 years, so it seems that he wasn't rounding and in fact know his dates very well.

------------------------------------------


Romney has consistently insisted that he was too busy organizing the 2002 Winter Olympics to take part in Bain business between 1999 and that event. But in his own testimony Romney noted that he regularly traveled back to Massachusetts. "There were a number of social trips and business trips that brought me back to Massachusetts, board meetings, Thanksgiving and so forth," he said.

Romney's sworn testimony was given as part of a hearing to determine whether he had sufficient residency status in Massachusetts to run for governor. Romney testified that he "remained on the board of the Staples Corporation, the Marriott International, the LifeLike Corporation" all companies in which Bain invested or operated at the time.

The statute of limitations looks to have tolled (5 years) for the federal charges; I'm less sure if there's any Massachusetts statute of limitations that might be in play or not. His former state issuing an arrest warrant on him would make for an epic October surprise....

If there is something wrong with making alot of money and keeping as much as you can, have at it. I still think that is what most Americans aspire to.

There's something there. He's been getting hit on this wayyyy to long. I doubt it's disqualifying (what would be? A felony.) but it could tie him to Bain during outsourcing and stericycle, the only company willing to dispose of aborted fetuses at abortion clinics.

Actually it makes me wonder if his tax returns don't tie him to Bain for even longer then the sec filings do? Or to another questionable company

Another questionable company? Jesus... Please let it be Hustler Inc.

You sound tired, Chris. You can't defend the Pillar of Free Market Capitalism better than that? I mean, I know his Schroedinger-like superpositioning on the political spectrum does provide you with some doubts, but rest assured, Chris, just because Romney has controlling interest in Elmer's (retroactively, of course) and doesn't want regulations like "hazard" labels on consumer products, there's no possible way as President he could be liable when you overdose on sniffing glue.

The problem is... we're not discussing that. The tax returns aren't going to show that he kept money. We all know he did. It's what we don't know, which is what he's trying to hide, silly.

Unless he DID work for Bain, and simply lied to everyone else about leaving in 1999.

But here's what really makes me laugh: you know how you tell a lie to avoid a situation, and it snowballs into this huge problem that's orders of magnitude larger than the original problem you were avoiding by lying in the first place? Mitt should have said "yes I was still with Bain on paper until 2002, but I had nothing to do with the whole outsourcing thing because I was in Utah." Voila, problem solved. Instead, he overreached and claimed that he wasn't with Bain AT ALL, which is a lie, and guess what?.... he's STILL getting hammered for outsourcing. It's absolutely delicious.

I love how it's an "attack" to point out something that Romney himself claimed in documented evidence, that he was "sole shareholder, sole director, chief executive officer and president" of Bain during that time. He sure didn't turn down the paychecks or investment income, now did he?

I still don't understand how Romney let this become an issue. His base, and even a lot of swing voters, would slurp up any free market tripe he chose to spout about how Bain conducted itself. His own campaign has shot itself in the foot by all of this unnecessary obfuscation and tap dancing.

You bring up a valid point: Romney had ZERO competition in the primaries because he was running against a bunch of morons. His flip-flopping should have been one of his biggest weakness, and instead Gov. Gun-for-a-dick Perry complete f*cking botches it up. Can you imagine how Romney must have felt at the time? "Damn this going to be waaay easier than I thought!" Well now he's in the big leagues, and his entire campaign is getting absolutely eviscerated by Obama.
