Obama is the sorriest excuse for a President we've ever dealt with.

Period.

it is no answer to say to evidence that Romney perjured himself that "well, Obama sucks too".

THat may be, but that's no excuse for Romney's perjury.

Big deal. I'll take Romney over Obama any time any day.

"Clinton did it too!" is not a good response, English Teacher.

Also, good luck with your knee and have fun at Sea World. I haven't been there in a long time, but it's a great place.

did anybody ask you if you'd take Romney or Obama?

how in the world is that a response to evidence of perjury and fraud by Romney?

ET says: ""Just because you are listed as an owner of shares does not mean you have a managerial role," Kessler writes. We agree."

I thought Romeny was listed as CEO. Isn't that Chief Executive Officer? Doesn't that mean, be definition, he has a managerial role? Wasn't he paid a salary for his managerial role?

Derek D. says:
not just that.

He was not only listed as the owner, but as the President, CEO, Chairman of the Board, and on the "management committee". His Formal title was listed as "Executive". Further, he signed a bunch of documents for Bain at the time, went to Bain company board meetings, and took a very large salary (not for ownership, but for his role as "management").

There is a simple answer as to why Bain and Romney remain so steadfastly adamant that he had nothing to do with Bain during the runup to the 2002 SLC Winter Olympics.

That simple answer is that Romney and Bain appear to have used the Olympics as a vehicle for personal enrichment, and appear to have been very successful in their endeavor.

David S Bernstein, writing in a 2007/08/10 Phoenix.com piece titled Mitt's Equity Army lays out the basic facts, below the orange indictment.

Bernstein lays out the basic facts: Bribery scandal threatens the Olympics, Mitt rides in to the rescue, starts calling his business connections and drumming up sponsorships.

The details of those deals were never disclosed: Romney exempted them from his "total transparency" pledge regarding the SLOC's finances and business arrangements.

...

In other cases, generosity to the Winter Olympics was followed closely by lucrative deals from Bain Capital, which do not prove a quid pro quo but do raise questions.

Staples: Romney personally tried to get a sponsorship contract for Staples, but Office Depot won out.

Gateway computers: SLC Olympic sponsorship followed by consulting contract with Bain.

John Hunstman: $1million donation to the SLC Olympics followed by a $250million investment from Bain.

Others of the final tally of 53 corporate sponsors were already under Romney and Bain Capital's influence. Marriott is led by close family friends - now campaign finance co-chairs; plus, Romney was sitting on the company's board at the time. Sealy, which Bain Capital owned, became a sponsor. So did Monster.com, where one of Romney's sons worked as a consultant. The vice-chair of General Motors was on Marriott's board of directors with Romney, as were the directors of Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Sears; all became sponsors. Many other sponsors had extensive business dealings with Bain Capital companies, or had top-ranking executives with past connections to Bain Capital companies. And most of them have come through for Romney again, by donating to his campaign.

"Clinton did it too!" is not a good response, English Teacher.

Way to go, that just eliminated nine tenths of ET's posts...

And one wonders why Mitt is so reluctant to release basic financial info?

So McCain's slogan (however ridiculous) in 2008 was "Country First", will Romney's be "My Pocketbook First"?

Especially since so many on the Right are quick to complain that "Bush did it, too!" is not a fair response to gripes about Obama.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 13, 2012 12:11:31 PM PDT
It is a signature trait of modern conservatives to dodge all accountability for their own actions (note the Tea Party) while at the same time being indignant if anyone so much as notes the historical context (i.e. mentions the 8 years the GOP has erased from its memory) of any issue or policy.

I love how their excuse is now: "Clinton did it too!" as if it's the same thing, or even if it was, that that somehow makes it ok (is Clinton their new standard for proper behavior?)

Since I didn't try to excuse anything (mainly because we don't lnow if it's. true) the 'gripe' doesn't seem to fit, but I'll own up to a cheap shot. I just couldn't resist.

Thanks for the wishes. A cortisone shot and sneaking out before he scheduled the MRI, and I'm ready to go.

It was easy for Obama

Obama's `Outsourcer' Overreach
The president's campaign fails to back up its claims that Romney 'shipped jobs' overseas.

Is that similar to Bush stammering, no matter the topic, Bush is brought up repeatedly.

what does Eric Holder have to do with Romney's lying?

Are you suggesting that perjury by Romney is ok if Holder lied too?
