Dwight_Yeast: HeartBurnKid: So, he's a financial whiz... but we can't see his finances.

He's a master executive... but we can't talk about what he did as an executive.

He saved the Olympics... but we can't see the records from the Olympics.

He was an awesome governor... but we can't talk about his record as governor.

That about cover it?

Basically, if you vote Romney, you're voting Schroedinger's Cat for president: you're voting for a box, and there's no way to know the state of the contents of the box without opening it, but you're not allowed to open it.

It's really pretty simple.



Bad idea. The internet LOVES cats

the olympics are extremely corrupt anyways so this comes as no big surprise...

Karac: So we can't talk about his time as governor because of Romneycare and because he erased all the computer records.
We can't talk about Bain after 1999 because at the same time that he owned it lock, stock, and barrel, he was also retroactively retired.
We can't talk about the rest of his finiancial history because he won't release his tax returns.
We can't talk about his running of the Olympics because all the records are fubared.

WTF is this guy running on?


His time as governor, at Bain, his financial history and running the Olympics. You just have to accept his accounts and I don't understand why someone would have a problem with that. We all know Obama is a liar.

People complain about Obama "hiding" pointless personal details of his life like school transcripts (which are PRIVATE information), but Romney hides actual salient facts of his business. political, and financial activities - and yells about transparency.
At this point, someone always says "B-b-b-but, Bush!". Yeah, GWB released his transcripts - and it was a bonehead play - they were none of anybody's business, gave his opponents fodder, and gave the people no useful information about him. Plenty of indifferent, subpar college students have grown up to be highly effective adults - that Bush did not is peculiar to him.
Meanwhile, Romney is concealing the facts of his significant business and political activities as an adult in public life.
Both sides are NOT the same.
Do NOT vote Republican.
At least, not at this point in our history.

Well I'm sure those documents are in a safe deposit box in Switzerland and Mitt's picking them up right now. If he can find them under the piles of money.

Mitt Romney: The most boring, empty threat this country has ever faced.

It would be nice if we could see Obama's senior thesis from Columbia, but hey, you know, those tenured professors get so forgetful sometimes.

Doesn't the Mormon church also buy, than hide from the public ANY "unflattering"
historical documents they can acquire?

This, but good luck convincing anyone that one side is worse. They are conditioned to pick the middle of two lies and take an "everybody is doing it" approach to corruption.

Dinki: "Mitt Romney resigned from SLOC [the Salt Lake Organizing Committee] in early 2002 to run for governor of Massachusetts and was not involved in the decision-making regarding the final disposition of records,

Christ, was this guy involved in ANY decision making? Seems he spent his entire professional life being the head of organizations but not actually running them.


The man Romny left to handle the Salt Lake Games was a former Bain executive. My gripe is his current hiring of Anthony Principi to advice him about VA affairs. My fellow veterans may remember Mr Principi when he was in charge of the VA System under President Bush. If your VA Hospital / Clinic was shut down under President Bush Mr Pricipi is the man to thanks. It was President Obama who brought in General Shinseki to clean up the "money saving" mess left by Anthony Principi

No, he didn't. They were leaked. Somebody at Yale sent them to the New Yorker without the Bush campaign's permission.

ox45tallboy: inclemency: elections don't work perfectly. I, and most of my friends, feel underrepresented. But as has been stated on fark and every other medium, our right is your left, and that makes me sad for you guys not in a condescending way....

We are also not properly organized, one vote does not equal one vote.

Look, there is no way possible that it could be as bad up there as it is here. You guys elect your Prime Minister from Parliament, similar to the way the British do it, right? So you don't have these long, drawn-out national elections for your head of state - you vote for your local representative(s), and the majority party picks a leader from amongst themselves, right? Or am I not understanding the system correctly?


Well, the "pick a leader" thing happens before the "vote for the local rep" thing, but otherwise, yes. I do not know how the funding works, in truth. Inclemency is, I believe, complaining about the "Weeners the post" system, which is a legit if poorly-articulated gripe. Also, our Senate is a freaking joke: they're appointed for life and spend a majority of their time vacationing someplace warm.

We should acquire a tropical protectorate: Canucks love a warm X-mas and just think, we could capture some of those tourist dollars...

Oh, allow me to apologize profusely for my inability to 'articulate' my thoughts on a level that would meet your requirements for cohesion. Maybe I was posting buzzed from my cell and got a little lazy.

But yes, I was griping at the 'Weeners the post' system. How else could OUR redneck population give us PM sweatervest, the man with the smile devoid of human qualities... Quite similar to rmoney actually.

That doesn't always work out so well:

That's US Representative Charlie Rangel, former Head of the House Ways & Means Committee and therefore one of the most powerful individuals in Washington, taking a snooze at a villa in the Caribbean. He was indicted over 13 counts of corruption, including shady real estate deals in the Caribbean.

Ours came close to giving us Republican Nominee Sweatervest, and, if bad things keep surfacing regarding the Stepford Candidate, you never know...

That's impossible. I have it under good authority that Democrats hate the troops
