In before someone claims "blind trust!"

"The blind trust is an age-old ruse, if you will," Romney said. "Which is to say you can always tell a blind trust what it can and cannot do. You give a blind trust rules."

Well, at least this is an improvement. Usually he makes the idiot political fark up, realizes he pretty much embodies that which he is railing against, and then he "fixes" the problem "retroactively.".

So he's making progress. At least at this rate, he might be somewhat competent to run for President in 2016.

Mitt Romney's recently released tax returns show the governor recently sold off investments in the Chinese online-video company Youku, a Chinese version of YouTube. The site was launched in 2006 and quickly became a haven for downloading illegal American content. The site has been trying to repair its image as a piracy portal since lawsuits have caused them to remove unauthorized content.

this sounds almost exactly like youtube's maturation process. not sure this is the smoking gun you're looking for.



"Did you know they even have an Apple store?" Romney said at a rally in Virginia last week. "It's a fake Apple store; they sell counterfeit Apple products. This is wrong. We're gonna crack down on China when they manipulate their currency, when they steal our goods, when they don't protect our intellectual property. We're gonna make sure that China understands we mean business. Trade is gonna work for us, not just for them."

and how do you propose we do this?

I love the lack of accountability the elite have.

"I had no idea that this guy was creating dummy shell corporations behind the company's back and sticking losses into them."

"I wasn't running Bain capital while I was the majority owner of Bain Capital."

"I didn't know anything about the phone hacking scandals of the company even though everyone describes me as an overzealous micromanager."

"I believe that nicotine is not addictive."

"Leak? I'm not aware of any oil leak? Oooohhhh, THAT leak. That leak is minor. A million gallons of oil a day, AT MOST"

"No one made me aware that we were losing 10 billion dollars a day, I found out we were going under on CNBC."

"I don't manage my blind trust, so I have no idea what it does to evade taxes, all I know is that it secretly reads my mind somehow."

He doesn't care. The only thing Romney really wants is to sit in the oval office and be the President. Basically, he thinks he's entitled to what amounts to a government handout.

You know, on the plus side for this whole disastrous campaign, is the fact that all this exposure to Romney and by extension - people like Romney - may be enlightening some Americans to the the many ways the American public is being sold out and destroyed by sociopathic aristocrats hell bent on diverting 100% of the GDP into their own hands even if it means taking the whole country down in a blaze.

We could ask the administrator about whether or not the trust is truly blind, but he would just claim his interactions with Romney are covered by attorney-client privilege, seeing as how he's Romney's personal lawyer

The guy managing Romneys trust happens to also be his personal attorney. So even if by some chance we were to find ourselves in a parallel universe where Romney was to be held accountable for his crimes, on this particular matter his manipulation of his "blind" trust would fall under attorney client privilege.

And those "outsourced" jobs are GM plants in Europe, genius.
