Frankly,

I don't really care when Romney left Bain.  It is not important.  I don't care about Obama's school transcript.  It is really not important.  If we really want to see what a President Romney would look like, we need to look to his record as Governor of Massachusetts.  Yet, Gov. Romney doesn't want to talk about his term as governor.  He wants to talk about his time at Bain.  Someone needs to remind Gov. Romney that running the government is not at all like running a business.  When you run a business, most individuals suck up because you are the boss, with the power to hire and fire.  You can't do that with Congress.   As President, you are but one of three branches of government, and legislation comes from Congress.  I would like to think Gov. Romney would stand up to Congress, but the last businessman in the White House was George Bush, and I don't remember him staind against the wayward spending of a Republican Congress.  Frankly, Mitt looks even more like a guy who wants approval than Bush.

Harry Reid has a new listing in the Urban Dictionary.

http://www.lvrj.com/blogs/sher...

I shudder to even think of an image of a "Harry Reid" with the real McCoy, but this is priceless comedy none-the-less.

"Harry Reid" is "A sexual position where you climb on top and then do absolutely nothing."

You can use the term like this, according to the dictionary: "I spent so long trying to talk her into bed that when I finally got on, I pulled a 'Harry Reid' and fell asleep."

Link to Financial Disclosure form Mitt filed in 2002. When you go to Appendix A you will see that he identifies himself as Executive at several Bain companies with salary $100,000 listed. His signature is also on the form, certifying the information is true under penalty of perjury.

Romney did nothing wrong. He managed his money and business well. But people don't think it's admirable to make money outsourcing jobs

One successful achievement for Barry Soetoro Obama has been creating debt for each and every American.

You now owe $64,000 individually in US debt.  Don't have it?  Well Barack plans on taking it away from those of us who do have it, if he is re-elected for another 4 year term.  Count on it.

It turns out that the Obama surrogates in the main stream media are lying through their teeth.

Bain Capital sends the following statement, following today's Boston Globe article reporting thatMItt Romney was CEO there until 2002:

"Mitt Romney left Bain Capital in February 1999 to run the Olympics and has had absolutely no involvement with the management or investment activities of the firm or with any of its portfolio companies since the day of his departure.  Due to the sudden nature of Mr. Romney's departure, he remained the sole stockholder for a time while formal ownership was being documented and transferred to the group of partners who took over management of the firm in 1999.  Accordingly, Mr. Romney was reported in various capacities on SEC filings during this period."

MomentoMori,

Odd that Mori, in his attempt to divert from the subject, uses stats that do not include the Chicago crime wave of 2012.

I suspect that many black men would prefer to be treated as men rather than as wayward children who must be cared for of by their white liberal betters.

Do you suppose that black folk have any idea what the NAACP really thinks of them?

“I believe his vested interests are in white Americans,” Charlette Stoker Manning, the chairwoman of Women in NAACP, told the website BuzzFeed following the Republican candidate’s Wednesday speech in Houston.

“You cannot possibly talk about jobs for black people at the level he’s coming from. He’s talking about entrepreneurship, savings accounts — black people can barely find a way to get back and forth from work,” Manning said.

Can't have black folk fleeing that old liberal plantation.

Political Spending by Unions Far Exceeds Direct Donations

The Wall Street Journal

 

Unions Spend 4.4 Billion Dollar over the last 6 years on politics and lobbying.

 

Organized labor spends about four times as much on politics and lobbying as generally thought, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis, a finding that shines a light on an aspect of labor's political activity that has often been overlooked.

 

Previous estimates have focused on labor unions' filings with federal election officials, which chronicle contributions made directly to federal candidates and union spending in support of candidates for Congress and the White House.

 

But unions spend far more money on a wider range of political activities, including supporting state and local candidates and deploying what has long been seen as the unions' most potent political weapon: persuading members to vote as unions want them to.

 

The new figures come from a little-known set of annual reports to the Labor Department in which local unions, their national parents and labor federations have been required to detail their spending on politics and lobbying since 2005.

This kind of spending, which is on the rise, has enabled the largest unions to maintain and in some cases increase their clout in Washington and state capitals, even though unionized workers make up a declining share of the workforce. The result is that labor could be a stronger counterweight than commonly realized to "super PACs" that today raise millions from wealthy donors, in many cases to support Republican candidates and causes.

 

It appears that unions make many of the republican donors look like small potatoes compared to unions.

"The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to

protect the children who Sandusky victimized. Messrs. Spanier, Schultz,

Paterno and Curley never demonstrated, through actions or words, any

concern for the safety and well-being of Sandusky’s victims until after

Sandusky’s arrest."

Tero. That award goes to Pres. Obama for sending 50,000 more troops to a black hole called Afghanistan.  And one of those troops commits suicide every day.

One of my top ten favorite movies is "The Sting" in which Paul Newman and Robert Redford play a couple of grifters who con other criminals.  And every 4 years the American people get to vote for a couple of grifters for President.  That's why one of my top five favorite movies is "Hot Rod Gang" with Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps.

So when will our great journalists investigate where Obama's campaign funds are coming from this year?

In 2008 it was proven the Obama campaign accepted illegal donations from foreign entities. Will we let him get away with it again?
