    Let me get this straight....Mr. Romney was listed as CEO, managing partner, president, sole stockholder, sole director and chief executive director and claims he had no interest in Bain Capital.....ok, got it, that makes sense.
    'Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
    Too noble to neglect
    Deceived me into thinking
    I had something to protect
    Good and bad, I define these terms
    Quite clear, no doubt, somehow
    Ah, but I was so much older then
    I'm younger than that now.'

    Have you read any of the objective third party articles explaining the realities of the situation?

    Some, unfortunately, are just more interested in wanting to believe it and blow off anything to the contrary. Amazingly, this is turning out to be a birther type issue. After watching Gibbs get called out on ABC and all of the fact checking sites debunk it, I am amazed that not only is the Obama campaign not backing down, but it appears they are going full steam ahead with it.

    As has been said, spin, exaggeration etc are all part of the "game" whether we like it or not. However, this clearly rises to another level like the Swift Boat issue. We the People like to beat on Congress and make them our scapegoats, but it's situations like these that show that We the People are part of the problem. We can't expect Congress to improve if we are going to allow something like this to continue or use the silly "they started it" or "they do it to" justifications. In many ways, the disaster that Congress has become is just a reflection of the actions of the voters.

    I was still online waiting for an answer for something from someone. Sorry to disappoint you with my additional post.

    That person PM'ed me back today. Much to Warhorse's delight (and yours apparently), I won't be on for a while again now.

    Have to say that I'm surprised that I didn't get a PM from a mod on this yet. Of course, I'm not surprised that he's not called out for his false allegations of me personally attacking him.

    Goodbye for a few weeks again folks!

    Dude, what is with the silly drama? Warhorse said "constant personal sniping." Calling that a "false allegation of [you] personally attacking him is a stretch to say the least. As 57 would say, "big whop." Nobody is persecuting you. I have no earthy idea why you feel these sabbaticals are necessary, but it is not because of how you have been treated by the mods or anyone else.

    The thing that kills me about this is, it honestly doesn't matter either way. Romney being effective as a private equity guy is fine, that helps his resume, a little.

    But whatever the case is -- whether he off-shored or "created jobs" at Bain -- it doesn't suggest he'll repeat the feat as president. They are two totally different jobs. It's like saying you don't want Bubba Starling as an NU QB because you're afraid he'll go around hitting the football with a bat.

    My thinking exactly, not exactly comparable. Certainly not as racially motivated either.
