‘You Know Mitt Romney Is Out of Touch When… ‘

THis is a fantastic article over at Perrspectives : http://www.perrspectives.com/blog/archives/002529.htm

‘You know Mitt Romney is out of touch when his tax cut proposal supposedly focused on “the people in the middle” could save his own family tens of millions of dollars and his billionaire backers billions more by ending the estate tax’.

‘You know Mitt Romney is out of touch when his surrogate Haley Barbour says Mitt’s tax returns don’t “amount to diddly,” the same expression he used to describe slavery after his state of Mississippi omitted mention of it in its Confederate Heritage Month declaration’.

‘You know Mitt Romney is out of touch when defends his supposedly blind trust’s investments by claiming “I don’t even know where they are” after having accused Ted Kennedy in 1994 of running a “an age-old ruse” with a “blind trust that appeared to be not quite so blind.”

‘You know Mitt Romney is out of touch when his supposedly blind trust transferred 12,000 shares in a Bermuda company to his wife’s blind trust the day before he was sworn in as governor in 2003, closed a $3 million Swiss account in 2010 and invested $10 million in son Tagg’s new firm, Solamere Capital’.

 

Mitt Romney Lies #38 – ‘Romney Interview Directly Contradicts His Previous Statements About Bain Tenure’

 

If a person makes up stories about HIS life, how can we believe him when he talks about OUR lives?

‘Romney recalled he was “probably 4 or something like that” the day of the Golden Jubilee, when three-quarters of a million people gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the American automobile’.

“My dad had a job being the grandmaster. They painted Woodward Ave. with gold paint,” Romney told a rapt Tea Party audience in the village of Milford Thursday night, reliving a moment of American industrial glory’.

‘The Golden Jubilee described so vividly by Romney was indeed an epic moment in automotive lore. The parade included one of the last public appearances by an elderly Henry Ford’.

‘And it took place June 1, 1946 — fully nine months before Romney was born’.

And when you can’t even remember what you gave as sworn testamony, you have a real problem.

‘Mitt Romney told CBS News‘s Jan Crawford Friday evening that he did not attend Bain Capital meetings after he left the company in February of 1999 to run the Winter Olympics. But this answer appears to contradict sworn testimony he delivered in 2002 “as part of a hearing to determine whether he had sufficient residency status in Massachusetts to run for governor”:

– 2002: “[T]here were a number of social trips and business trips that brought me back to Massachusetts, board meetings, Thanksgiving and so forth.”

– 2012: “I was in Salt Lake City for three straight years. I don’t recall even coming back once to go to a Bain or management meeting. We were, I was out there running the Olympics and it was a full time job, I can tell you that.”

Fantastic piece!
This is the direction we are already headed and if the new Conservatives take all three branches of the Federal Government, then the buffer and safe guard that Government is between people and corporations will be gone.

Mitt Romney Lies #37 – ‘Is This SEC Document The Hardest One For Romney To Explain’?

It comes down to this.

Mitt Romney either lied to the SEC or he is lying to the American people.

You can believe Mitt Romney without him showing one single document……………….or you can ask yourself why ALL these documents are showing one thing and Mitt Romney is saying something else?

On January 3rd, 2000, Mitt Romney SIGNED (that means active involvement) a document shown here : http://www.buzzfeed.com/mckaycoppins/is-this-sec-document-the-hardest-for-romney-to-exp#HTWF2 that states – ‘W. Mitt Romney (“Mr Romney”) is the sole stockholder, sole director, Chief Executive Officer, Managing Director and President of BCI VI Inc’.

 

I LOVE this!

The Liberty Tree

The ever expanding list of reasons as to why I can’t vote for Willard Mitt Romney because he:

12 Jul 12 – Lied to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) about his role at Bain Capital; possibly committed a felony

12 Jul 12 – Lied about when he left Bain Capital

16 Jun 12 – Said he’d do opposite of everything President Obama’s done for Israel

14 Jun 12 – Said it was OK to fire public sector employees

12 Jun 12 – Claimed he wanted to serve in Vietnam although granted multiple deferments

Great response! It needs to be said over and over until more people are asking to know the truth rather then just accepting the lie.

Uncommon Sense

Republicans were howling that the Affordable Care Act was unconstitutional, but now that it is, they are adrift and flailing around for other levers to pull. The fascinating thing is that the health insurance boffins are ecstatic as people will now be “forced” to purchase health insurance, so I wonder what the Republican crocodile tears are all about. (They sure weren’t crying when they cashed all of those checks from the health insurance industry during the debate of the ACA.)

Before anyone goes overboard about the “mandate” let’s take a reality check. I want you get all of your friends and neighbors together, in your back yard is okay. Count them up. If you don’t have 100 people, scrounge up some more neighbors or even more distant relatives until you do. Now, once you have 100 people in your yard, how many of these folks, do you think, will have…

Mitt Romney Lies #36 – “Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to deceive”

How DARE we question Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney DEMANDS an apology!

It is NOT ‘reckless’ or ‘absurd’ to question that what you are saying today is different then what you said in 1999.

‘Trust Me’ means little to a man who has a LONG history of flip flopping on the issues, is providing only 1 year of tax returns, has Cayman Island and Swiss bank accounts and in 5, count them 5 ‘Andy Warhol’ 5 minutes of fame interviews, would not provide 1 single document to support the claim that you weren’t involved in Bain after Feb. 1999. Bain is your ENTIRE argument that as a business man YOU have the experience to ‘turn the Country around’.

As document after document after document mounts up showing you WERE involved to some degree AFTER Feb. 1999. SO ALL of your time at Bain should be examined.

‘Romney Seeks Obama Apology for Bain Attacks’
WASHINGTON — ‘Mitt Romney demanded an apology from President Obama on Friday for making what he called “reckless” and “absurd” allegations in an escalating battle over whether Mr. Romney’s business record included outsourcing American jobs’.

‘Bain Capital sends the following statement, following today’s Boston Globe article reporting that MItt 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’.

‘Bain Capital CEO W. Mitt Romney, currently on a part-time leave of absence to head the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee for the 2002 Games said……’

‘Prior to taking leave to run the Olympics in 1999, Mr. Romney took a leave of absence from Bain Capital during his 1994 Senate campaign. Another Globe article published in 2002 contains a quote from a former Bain Capital executive named Marc B. Wolpow who said Mr. Romney remained in a very active role at Bain Capital while he was supposedly on a leave of absence for his Senate race’.

“I reported directly to Mitt Romney . . . You can’t be CEO of Bain Capital and say, `I really don’t know what my guys were doing,’” Mr. Wolpow said of Mr. Romney role at the company during his leave’.
‘Mr. Wolpow declined to comment on this story. The Politicker reached out to Mr. Fehrnstrom multiple times yesterday to see why his current explanation of Mr. Romney’s departure from Bain is different than the one he gave the Globe a decade ago but we have yet to receive a response’.
