Politicians are hypocrites. What is confusing about this?
 
2012-07-16 12:19:41 AM  
Are those donations being raised in coordinance with U.S. campaign finance laws?

Do those off-shore bank accounts allow the account holder to avoid being taxed on the account's contents?

There's your difference.

What the hell is a chi-com?

False equivalence is false.

Look, for the (hopefully) last time, no one is ragging on Romney BECAUSE he's rich. It's not how much money one has that is important but how one gets their money and what one does with it that is at issue. Making your fortune cannibalizing American companies and laying off American workers to offshore jobs by the thousands and then using shady tax havens to avoid paying your fair share of taxes, that is objectionable, especially for a man who wants to become the President of the ENTIRE United States, not just the rich part.

Romney has shown absolutely no interest in representing people outside his class. He's not here to make YOUR life any better (regardless of party registration). he's not here to protect YOUR interests. He's not running to solve YOUR problems.

I would rather have an honest to god public servant, than a "CEO in chief" because the U.S government is not a business. It doesn't exist to create a profit and it should absolutely NOT be run like a business.

I'm not saying Obama is an honest to god public servant, but he does better than Romney in that regard.

Also, if I may point out, no where in TFA does it indicate in any way shape or form that OBAMA is fundrasiing in these countries.

False equivalence is doubly false.

Chi-coms! There's some name calling I haven't heard in years!
 
2012-07-16 12:39:48 AM  
It's my understanding that Mitt will be fundraising in London and Jerusalem next week... so BSABSVR?

G.W. Bush had a fund raising venture with the Chinese just as Clinton and G Bush senior did before him.

News? Not so much...
 
2012-07-16 12:47:48 AM  
How many democrat senators and house members have offshore accounts? Probably less tomorrow than last week.

Democrats cheat on taxes enough they will still need them though
 
2012-07-16 12:51:37 AM  
Then again, Romney's fundraising in Israel, so I guess, um . . . Haliburton, or some such thing.

Honestly, that's not going to be the last time that has to be said.

Being a tax dodger is the same as asking for campaign contributions?

I should get my husband to make me a graphic for that. But I'm afraid it'll be TL;DR.

Using legal tax avoidance methods is the same as asking for campaign contributions from foreign, semi-hostile countries?

Seriously, if Romney broke the law, then Obama needs to tell the Justice Department to indict him for something. Otherwise, the poo-flinging monkeys running the Obama campaign need to get off this line of discussion, quick.

Something can be legal and still be incredibly shady. How do you campaign to lead the same government you've been trying to stiff for the last several years (legal or not)?

Additionally, how could he have been away from Bain for 3 years in Utah (as he has said several times) while his primary residence was in MA as required by the MA constitution in order for him to run for President?

So for those of you at home keeping track of the GOP's frantic flailing attempts to distract from the epic fail that is their candidate: shipping American jobs to the "Chi-Coms", good. Asking Americans abroad for campaign contributions, bad.
 
2012-07-16 03:46:54 AM  

This About That: Chi-coms! There's some name calling I haven't heard in years!


Rush uses it all the time.

I'm really sorry to hear that. Take care.

It's called raising money from ex-pats, you ignorant f*cktards. It's amazing that that these people even have the ability to f*ck a sheep, much less be a influential force in American politics.
 
2012-07-16 10:51:44 AM  
I am sure that in the article they mention that Ari Fleischer is in Israel right now raising money with conservative American expat Jews? Right?
 
2012-07-16 10:52:22 AM  
Raising money from ex-pats BAD

Keeping money in offshore tax havens to avoid paying for upkeep in the country that you want to become President of GOOD
 
2012-07-16 10:54:50 AM  
heh when Obama loses this tab is going to be epic. I may have to take screenshots and frame them.

Isn't the proper term "attractive and successful Chinese-American?"

Well, I certainly just took a screenshot of your post, if that's any indication of how "quaking in my boots" of that reality I am.

Will you buy new ones or will you swap out the Reagan, Norquist and Limbaugh posters for the screenshots?

So what if Obama is outsourcing his campaign fundraising? Is that illegal?
 
2012-07-16 10:59:05 AM  
Coming to the table with less damning rhetoric on this issue just keeps it in play, republicans need to know when to fold em and try to change the subject and move on. I know you all are not used to not being in control of the debate thanks to a media that allows you to constantly lie in the name of balance but trust me, just try to change the subject here.

What if Mary Lou Retton blows Navy Seals after they've finished their combat exercises? Is that illegal?

haha, this is going to be hilarious when the white house asks Mitt Romney's campaign to release his bundler donor list (which he hasn't).

Mary Lou Retton? What is she, like 60 or something?
 
2012-07-16 11:02:14 AM  
The Chinese have a quasi-market economy and they keep North Korea in check, find another boogeyman, teabaggers.
 
2012-07-16 11:03:48 AM  
"Chi-Coms". I don't need to read anymore to know this will be bullshiat.
 
2012-07-16 11:03:52 AM  
This may be the lamest attempt at deflection I've seen yet.

I like when people say Chicoms and Norks. It sounds like something Walter Sobchak would say.

What if Terry Savalas was exhumed from the grave and then reanimated and was then taken to Greece with his god daughter Jennifer Aniston and they were burned to death in the streets? Is that illegal?
 
2012-07-16 11:06:53 AM  
Ew. Romney would never do that.

...Or maybe he would. We still don't know who is donating to those 501(c)(4)s.
 
2012-07-16 11:07:31 AM  
I think we can all agree campaign donations do not afford the givers, foreign or domestic, any special favors or access.
