dr_blasto: Why would anyone care if Romney testified in someone else's divorce? I don't see how it would make a difference unless he said he was banging boys in the DR with Rush and the father while doing blow. Somehow I don't thing that scenario is in these documents.

Mental image aside, this would change zeeero votes.

Republicans know Romney is a piece of shiat. They. Just. Don't. Care.

I detest Romney and look forward to pissing on the grave of his political career, but Gloria Allred is not a sympathetic figure. She has a well-deserved reputation as an attention whore. She may very well be an excellent attorney for her individual clients but I don't see her moving very many people from the R column to the D column no matter what she has to offer.

Uh... I cannot imagine anything in decades old character testimony in a divorce case that would be "shocking" or "Juicy." The press is salivating at it, but the Romney campaign is fine with the court releasing the records.

Which tells me that Romney's testimony is boring and irrelevant, and only outrages this crazy divorced woman who is obsessing over how much she hates him for supporting her husband during their divorce.

Got my hair cut and the barber, a Greek guy in his 70's, wanted to talk politics. He said he'd cut both Romney's and Obama's hair (this is Harvard Square after all). I asked who was the better tipper and he said Romney by a little bit, but Romney was already a businessman at the time and Obama was just a poor student. I asked who he was voting for and he said Obama. Why? Romney keeps bringing up Greece as a bad example: "If the country keeps up this way, we'll end up like Greece." Romney said that at least three times during the debate, so Romney doesn't like Greeks. I therefore predict a landslide Greek, Portuguese and Spanish vote for Obama.

Afterwards I gave him a tip and said "I hope that was a better tip than Romney gave you."

rufus-t-firefly: From TMZ (yuck):

Multiple sources connected with the divorce tell TMZ ... during Tom's uber nasty divorce case with ex-wife Maureen, Mitt Romney gave a deposition and testified during the trial that Staples was worth virtually nothing. Romney testified that the company was worth very little and Tom was a dreamer and "the dream continues."

Romney characterized the Staples stock as "overvalued," adding, "I didn't place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future."

Partly as a result of Romney's testimony, Maureen got relatively little in the divorce, but we're told just weeks after the divorce ended, Romney and Tom went to Goldman Sachs and cashed in THEIR stock for a fortune. Short story -- Romney allegedly lied to help his friend and screw the friend's wife over.

If you don't think that the company is going to be doing well in the future, wouldn't it make sense to cash in the stock? Making a 'fortune' off of this is not really representative of the companies future value, it may be that they just had a boatload of stock.

In any case, too much missing information from this blurb to really say what is going on here.

Leeds: I personally believe that the election is in a dead heat.

That said, Obama's surrogates seem to be pretty scared if they have to pretend that a 25 year old court case where he stood up for his friend is somehow damaging or even relevant.

This smells of desperation.

Sorry, she is no Obama surrogate. Try again.

Sounds like a crazy person still fighting a battle she lost 20 years ago, and I'm sure she believes whatever it is is devastating. I wouldn't put much stock in it.

Everybody already knows Romney is a morally bankrupt, disgusting sack of greedy dog shiat, so how is anything he said back then going to change anyone's mind?

It couldn't be any worse than things he's already said publicly, then denied, then said again, then said the opposite, then got offended when you brought it up again.

kregh99: meh. Anything hyped up this much can't be that good.

I picture Allred and Trump in a bar exchanging stories about why nobody gave them any attention.

Pretty much this. The only way this will be a story is if Romney did something illegal that is substantiated in the court documents/evidence or if Romney used the Mormon church to somehow screw this woman in the divorce. I seriously doubt that either one of these things occurred.

The same goes for Trump's "Obama divorce papers." Unless POTUS kicked the crap out of Michelle, whatever happened between them was 12 years ago, and they made it through it. Most Americans will shrug their shoulders because who hasn't thought about leaving their spouse at one point in time?

LarryDan43: hillbillypharmacist: I can't see how Romney's testimony about Tom Stemberg's qualities as a father would be damaging to Romney. Unless he slipped in there, "Tom Stemberg is a good father. I can say for certain that Mr. Stemberg doesn't posess any of those qualities I possess, namely, I'm an unctuous, soulless mirror of whatever the voters want."

I'm the biological father of one of his sons and Tom treats him like his own. He is a great dad.

Seriously? I'm Larry Bird's uncle's wife's sister's nephew. I kid but, you know, how are we to know you're legit?

/ also, while I fully support the President, I find this entire thing and GA deplorable. This isn't the Governor's tax returns we're talking about, this is a VERY personal matters to which he appears tangentially involved at best.

NowhereMon: I guess I'm a little curious about WHY Mitt Romney would even need to testify at his partners divorce trial...

Testify about his partner's assets, aka the value of his share of the company. Nothing unusual about that

I'm not. and I don't care if Obama once thought about divorce.

It's a stupid ploy and should not be paid attention to.

The October surprise should be that the election was brought forward from November to October 25th. The entire country would rejoice that they no longer have to deal with this tedium.
