Obama: ... Romney personally approved over $70 million fictional losses to the IRS..."

Aug 13, 2012 Full story: www.politifact.com 30

Barack Obama expanded his assault on Mitt Romney's business ethics with a new ad that connects Romney to dodging taxes.

If you havenít heard of it, Son of Boss was a tax dodge that swept the country in the 1990s and allowed well-heeled investors and corporations to hide billions of dollars in taxes they owed the government. We thought we should examine this new allegation and see whether Romney truly did have a hand in advancing a spurious tax shelter.

If this is only half true it sounds like it is mostly made up by desperate people. Even if it were completely true it won't matter when you are running against the most corrupt politician Chicago has ever produced. You have to weigh the facts, and in this case there seems to be some missing. He without sin cast the first stone. I read where people are not so much voting for Romnsy as much as they are voting against Obama, so none of this matters.

Remember, Romney is a heartless, greedy man with no compass. He changes his positions like a teenaged prostitute at the GOP convention. He has no reason to pay taxes as we do.

He my have illegaly or legally paid no taxes. He may have committed illegal scams.

Romney may have ordered American FACTORIES CLOSED AND SHIPPED TO THE ORIENT.

How can we know?
Romney's tax returns since 1999.

Obama's ties to the Communist Party and super radical terrorist organizations are much more interesting and provable, than these spurious allegations against his opponents. One might note the undercurrent of current Commie Democrat accusations... they really want to take more money from all investors to pay for a continued and expanding bureaucracy and forty year Democrat legislated system of buying votes through entitlements and peculiar "safety nets" designed to allow various services to fraudulently bill the government (read remaining taxpayers.)

To make Obamaloney:
Just mix equal parts of brainwashed imperialist democrat, soviet style communism, and outright, bold-faced lies in a blender. Add copious amounts of piss and vinegar, Salt and Pepper(of course) and stuff into the main stream media. It is best served cold and is usually stuffed down one's throat. You find out what it tastes like after you eat it.

While we're at it, lets take a look at the real Mitt Romney, not one characterized by a congenital liar and a pip-squeak of a man that couldn't stand in his shadow.....

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School he graduated "summa cum laude" from both. he passed the Michigan bar, but never worked as an attorney.

As a venture-capitalist, Romney's first major business deal involved investing in a start-up office supply company with one store in Massachusetts that sold office supplies. That company, called Staples, now has over 2,000 stores and employs over 90,000 people.

Romney or his company Bain Capital (using what became known as the "BainWay") would go on to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.

Got your calculators handy? Let's recap.

Volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

Unpaid intern in Governor's office 8 years.

Mormon missionary in Paris 2 years.

Unpaid bishop and state president for his church 10 years.

No salary as president of the Olympics 3 years.

No salary as MA governor 4 years.

That's a grand total of 28 years of unpaid service to his country, his community and his church. Why? Because that's the kind of man Mitt Romney is!

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income....Obama gave 1%

Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%

( I think it's interesting that some details are given here about Romney's tax return and about Biden's tax return but no details about Obama's tax return, or all of his SEALED records.. Snopes confirms most of

Oh yes, this is the newest Democrat lie, and so easily proved a lie. They have to be so desperate to think we wouldn't check every word out of their mouths. Anyway, like the Old lady over the cliff, the Romney gave the steel workers wife cancer, and killed her, and he hasn't paid taxes in 10 years all disappeared this lie will too. Why don't they talk about Obama's record as President? Oh, yes, he failed, and they can't talk about it. We can!!
