Mitt Romney's financial shenanigans

2 posts / 0 new

Republicans may want to think about retroactively removing Mitt Romney from the top of their Presidential ticket. After evidence piled up last week that Mitt Romney was working at Bain Capital and laying off thousands of American workers for years after he claimed he left the company, the Romney campaign is out with its latest – and most desperate – attempt to put the issue to rest.

Senior Romney campaign advisor Ed Gillespie on Sunday said that Romney had actually “retroactively retired” from Bain after 1999. That answer doesn’t satisfy American voters – OR fellow Republicans – who are now calling on Romney to release more than two years of his tax returns to see just how much he may have been paid by Bain during the years he supposedly retroactively retired, and just how much in taxes he’s avoided paying with his offshore bank accounts.

But Romney’s trying to put that issue to rest – saying this morning that he will not release any more tax returns. Senator Harry Reid said it best – this guy couldn’t be confirmed as the neighborhood dog catcher with all his shady financial deals – let alone President of the United States.

Is it really not clear to everyone that Romney is one of the .1% ? Why even try to portray or believe him to be a common man? I accept the fact that, as a vulture capitalist, he invested in companies to maximize personal gain-if that coincided with improving the company-great-if not-he didn't care. Vultures have a game plan of reducing costs(lower product quality, reduce customer service) which acts like a cancer that kills the company 5-6 years later-long after the vultures have taken their profits and run. The American people have a simple choice-do you want one of the .1% as president?

The world we're leaving for today's teens...

Without immediate global action on climate change, today's teenagers will be forced to live with the consequences of our inaction. The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
