Bah. Posting a link is nothing. I want to see proof that he said that. Long-form proof. And don't make it a copy, like those fakers from Romney's crew always do.

Seems like even with ACORN gone, there are still plenty of nuts.

There is an easy was to prove he isn't.

Long story short: "If Romney wasn't really the CEO of Bain Capital when it was outsourcing jobs, raiding pension funds, and profiting off of abortions, then he lied on the paperwork when he claimed he was CEO to the SEC, which is a felony."

No one called Romney a felon. But he has made assertions that, if correct (which is suspect) means he lied on SEC paperwork which is a felony. Romney wants it both ways. He was CEO but he wasn't REALLY CEO and he expects people to just buy that.

No one is accusing him of being a felon which specifically means he was charged AND convicted of a felony. Words have meaning, whether whiney republicans know the meaning or not.

False equivalence is false.

Accusation is not the same thing as hypothetical deduction. Subby, when I say, "you're petty" that's me accusing you of being petty.

If I were to say, "Someone who intentionally misrepresents facts to make another appear bad is petty. If subby inentionally misrepresented facts to make Obama appear bad then subby behaved in a petty manner," that isn't an accusation.

Either/or, Subtard.

Either he's committed a felony OR he's just an immoral, lying sack of shiat who profits off dismantling companies, shipping American jobs overseas and throwing aborted fetuses into an industrial incinerator.
Your choice. Which is it?
 
2012-08-21 07:14:23 PM  
Congratulations, editorial board of the Examiner. You are either stupid or dishonest, which according to you, is EXACTLY THE SAME as me saying you are stupid.
 
2012-08-21 08:42:58 PM  
I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and just assume he was lying to the American public.
 
2012-08-21 08:51:57 PM  
There's no proof that he must be a felon. But based on his own statements and statements made by Bain to the SEC, Romney must have either lied to the SEC, the IRS, or the American people. His statements and SEC documents are openly contradictory, and there is no way to reconcile them. So he must have lied.

Lying to the SEC or the IRS is a felony.

yeah, no such thing.

2012-08-21 09:02:14 PM  
Has anyone made the point that Romney is basically accusing himself of being a felon? He's definitely crossed a line.

Lurking Fear: " Obama's officially endorsed super-PAC"

Not to mention illegal, right?
 
2012-08-21 09:23:38 PM  
Also, if Bain continued to pay him to do nothing and take no active role in the company, is that the sort of leadership quality he intends to demonstrate as President?
 
2012-08-21 09:29:26 PM  
Subby is getting OWNED, lol.
 
2012-08-21 09:30:36 PM  
Saying you may have committed a felony =/= being a felon. You have to be convicted for the latter to be true. Besides, Obama's deputy campaign manager said nothing wrong, or untrue, far as I can tell. If what Romney is believed to have done is in fact, what he did, then yes, he committed a felony.

When someone from Obama's camp, or the man himself, comes forward and says, "Romney be a criminal, yo".....then we'll talk.

There is nothing sociopathic in stealing/wearing cop uniforms and pulling over couples or holding down gay students and cutting their hair or hurting animals.

It probably just an extreme personality disorder.

Even if Romney committed a felony, the President of the United States isn't going to have the opposition candidate arrested during election season.

Like Mr. Romney, a lot of felons claim they have done nothing wrong. Mostly they all are liars.

There is an easy way to distinguish yourself from liars and felons Mr. Romney, provide your tax returns.

I think it would be hilarious to have him investigated, then make a public statement about not having him arrested because that'd be a farked up thing to do even though we're pretty sure he's guilty as sin.

Examiner Editorial: Obama meets the press and makes stuff up
...
Stephanie Cutter told reporters on a conference call that Romney "through his own words and his own signature" misrepresented "his position at Bain to the [Securities and Exchange Commission], which is a felony."

Asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer four days later...


Misrepresenting one's position to the SEC is a felony. That's not a lie.

Also, after she said that, she said "Or, he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments," including layoffs and the outsourcing of jobs.

Why is Examiner Editorial committing a lie of omission? If the Examiner Editorial is being dishonest, why should we care about their concern about others dishonesty, especially when the others dishonesty only exists because of the Examiner Editorial's dishonesty?

Actually, that's kinda brilliant. The right will scream bloody murder if Romney is even investigated, much less arrested. The only way for that not to happen is to maneuver it so that the RIGHT demands such action, and I can think of no better way to do it than to publicly say that the government has found evidence proving Romney has committed a felony, but that he won't be investigated or charged because he's too rich and politically connected, then wait for the public uproar to force the issue.

Bad idea. The next day the Romney campaign will put out an ad "Obama pardons known felons"

This is just delicious. Liberals go on and on about farking tax returns that no one actually cares about - and, when they realize that no one is listening, they up the shrill harping to 11. And, in typical Democrat fashion, they go too far, and now the story becomes about the "mean old liberal hate machine" instead of R-Money's record.

It would be comical if it weren't so stupidly predictable.
 
2012-08-21 09:57:24 PM  
If I'm not mistaken, a felon is someone who has been convicted of a felony and spent more than a year behind bars, and therefore in Prison and not jail. I sincerely doubt anyone has accused Romney of being a convicted Felon. Someone may have implied or outright said that Romney has engaged in felonious behavior, but it's ridiculous to accuse him of being a felon. It'd be like accusing the president of the united states of being born in another country.

Except they didn't, in fact, go too far. Rather, the right is once again making up bullshiat. But yes, you're right, it was quite predictable.

It's amateur hour over at the Romney campaign. Romney has painted himself into so many corners already that he'll need to buy a whole new house with fresh corners to continue painting himself into. And we haven't even gotten to the convention yet much less the debates.

Obama's internal polling is not looking good, is it? Why is he not telling us about the great things the stimulus money has bought us, like ads on ultra liberal TV shows?

This is so much fun because it's the same thing the right uses. "Some people say Obama is a Marxist Fascist" is a way of making an accusation without literally making it. So too does "If Romney made a false statement to the SEC, he's a felon" brings that accusation into the public sphere without having actually made that accusation. Conservatives know this trick. That is both why they have leapt to the idea that Obama's campaign is making the accusation directly and also why they are screaming bloody murder now that this trick is being used against them.
