Is this going to be the next ad?

Only 25%? I would have guessed at least 50.

bundlers

Ugh. When will we finally pass via constitutional convention (because 2/3rds of Congress won't vote for it) a new amendment that allows only public financing and bans campaign contributions?

/yeah, I know, it's socialisms.

This is the first time since public funding was introduced that both candidates have refused to accept it.

I'm sure he'll retroactively release them after his inauguration. Stupid libs.

All Obama can do is attack Romney becuase he is SUCCESSFUL!



Obama hates successful people.

"A top Mitt Romney adviser signaled Monday the campaign would continue to keep the names of its bundlers private, even as he accused President Obama of giving special favors to those who have raised campaign cash."

He really is clueless.

Who knows where the donations came from, they've been retroactively deemed to have come from holocaust survivors now.

Romney Camp: LOOK AT WHO OBAMA'S DONORS ARE!!!

Press: Can we see who your donors are?

Romney Camp: WHAT?!??! THAT IS AN UNFAIR QUESTION!!!


Come on asses. This level of BS hypocrisy is new level. People can't ignore it forever.

This summer really has been a nightmare for Romney. He has always seemed out of touch, and now he seems like he might have done something illegal, or at the very least immoral. And with this story, it seems like this is how this guy operates.

He has lock step republicans asking to see his tax returns. I didn't know Republicans ever openly criticized one another.

He can't produce any. He knows he can't run on his shiatty ass failure record. It is so sad...

Really? He's too successful? That's your story now? That the multi-millionaire who currently holds the highest elected office in the free world hates successful people like Mitt?

ptrace.fefe.de

The white guy in that picture beat Mitt into the ground in 2008. It personally cost Mitt $45,000,000 to accomplish that success.

/ SUCCESS!

They're actually going to try to make that fly!

2012-07-16 02:12:30 PM  
Romney should just keep his mouth shut about Obama's campaign contributions if he doesn't want his own scrutinized. But of course he can't. And so he hands Obama yet another issue on a platter to beat him over the head with. I don't think any of the top GOP strategists seriously think Romney has a snowball's chance this Fall. They aren't even trying anymore. They are basically just letting Romney hang himself. Maybe they are trying to make Romney look so bad that by comparison the GOP candidate in 2016 will look great. I can see the GOP campaign slogan for 2016: "Hey, at least he's not Romney".

"Anymore" implies that, at one point in time, he WAS trying. I don't think that's the case here.

So you're not going to come clean and admit I showed you lying earlier in this thread?

Once again why do you feel your side needs to lie?

Is this really the 2 weeks that Obama destroys Romney? I am starting to see a stir in the media- they are starting to take notice and move in on the Romnoid.
 
2012-07-16 02:45:09 PM  
It continues to amuse me that the people who voted for Obama, whose past we weren't allowed to examine or even talk about without hysterical screaming about how you're just a racist for even questioning it or that it was trivial and didn't matter... And Obama himself certainly wasn't talking about it.

Now want to know absolutely everything about Romney.

When John and Teresa married they agreed to keep their premarital assets separate and always filed their taxes separately. That noted, the GOP did harp on that one back when Dumbya ran against Kerry and Romney bringing the fact up now in defense of his refusal to release his tax information to the American public here in 2012 is... well, "pants-on-head retarded" is the phrase that pops most readily to mind.

That Romney is a whore of Wall Street is not even a question by this point.

He's Gordon Gekko, only with a bigger God complex.

I thought Romney was proud of his business record? Why now can't it be discussed? Why is he so afraid of anyone knowing the details of his "success"?

You seem to be trying to say that asking Obama for proof that he was born in the US is equivalent for us asking Romney to show his tax returns that every president has done in the last 36 years.

You guys seem really desperate about this.

Certainly nothing racist (or batshiat crazy, for that matter) to imply that an African American man born in Hawaii with a foreign sounding name who repeatedly showed his birth certificate was somehow not a real American.

Yep, nothing to see there. . .save for the herp derp racism of the tea birthers.

You find it amusing that people want to know about a presidential candidate's personal history?

I don't think we're going to get this information until many Bothans die.

So get to it. Start killing Bothans!

Don't worry libs Mitt Romney will RETROACTIVELY release all his donor information after the election so we can make an informed decision at the polls.

/It worked for "leaving" Bane

I am pretty sure Obama got a big boost from Wall Street the last time around too. They tend to play both sides until there is a clear winner.

ManRay: I am pretty sure Obama got a big boost from Wall Street the last time around too. They tend to play both sides until there is a clear winner.


Almost all of Romney's donors are large donors associated with Banking or Private Equity Management etc. while most of Obama donors are small donors.

When one is like 95% and the other is like 5% saying "Both sides are bad" is just BS.

Not necessarily. It's good to have contacts, of course, but a Romney win represents a far larger return on their investment than an Obama win.

We're not sure though because he won't release that information
