To be honest, my issues with Romney come my Conservatism. Romney isn't a Moderate, he's not Conservative. He's just an amorphous blob of corporatist goo that doesn't even have ballast chambers to control his buoyancy.

That's the thing about Romney, is that folks from both the Left and the Right can find things to really worry them. Especially with his tenth or twelfth "reboot" of his campaign. There is nothing really there to support. No hard policy. A lot of equivocation, and a LOT of bloviating when he should really be concentrating on the issues at hand, as opposed to trying to keep "score."

Romney isn't a solid candidate, and hasn't been since the start. There isn't really anything to support. No policies, nothing but vague rhetoric, and a commitment to whoever is in the room with him, save on the issue of his own taxes, and a pledge to keep folks from looking too close at the taxes of those closest to him.

That should worry any good Conservative. Couple it with his asinine statements on foreign policy, and an abandonment of principles of governing, and you have things that should worry everyone. Right or Left or Centerist, Romney is a candidate only for those folks who want "their" side to win, over the good of the nation, and our children's futures. This isn't about teams, it's about recognizing a man who isn't fit for office, and who never should have gotten on the slate in the first place...

TOSViolation: Indubitably: Oh, please.

Thank you.


No. The issue isn't what Romney did or did not say. If you believe that anything a presidential candidate says during campaign fundraisers should be public information, then go ask for that to be made into law. I'm not saying I disagree with the notion. That's not what interests me.

What interests me is why anyone thinks this is ok to do. Let's remove the presidential campaign aspect of this. Suppose this was a CEO talking about an upcoming product. Would not corporate espionage laws apply? When an event is held as a PRIVATE HOME, why cannot a reasonable level of privacy be expected?

This whole social media, I get to know everything about everyone, voyeurism mentality is ridiculous.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: TOSViolation: Had the recording been taken by an invited attendee (not hired catering staff), then that might be different.

Another GED in law.


Nope. No law degree of any sort. That statement was not a statement of law. It was a statement of opinion. Note the word MIGHT in there. For all we know, the person who recorded the event was hired under a confidentiality agreement in her contract. I just feel like a crime occurred in the secret recording. I'm not sure how hidden camera shows and news investigations get away with some of the things they do either.

Sure, bad people do and say bad things. I think they should be held accountable for those things. There still is a point where a line has to be drawn. When you cross that line, you stop being the "crusader for justice" and start being the criminal. It just feels like that line was crossed by the person who recorded the event.

This is the United States of America. Unlike England, you can publish anything you can find out about public figures if it's for the public good. This has been true since Jefferson was president.
