Romney is the only candidate who has a Swiss bank account. He did not release those years of tax returns because that would have revealed the extent to which he avoided taxes.
Do you know how many years of tax returns John Kerry released?
I think it was 12-14. Registering yachts in other states is a common practice; and he corrected it.
You mean he got caught doing one of the many things that he and his wife used to accumulate their fortunes, but now must never reveal to the public to appease the hypocritical fools such as you.

Not all religious people spend their entire lives scheming hateful ways to take away the rights of others.
Let the above people be an example of Christianity.
And you be an example of continued inebriated hypocrisy.

The e-mail rumor mill is run by conservatives
Nonpartisan debunkers such as FactCheck.org , Snopes.com , PolitiFact.com , Emery and The Washington Post’s Fact Checker have been chasing down these tales and dousing them like three-alarm fires for years.(There’s even a chain e-mail that paints Snopes as a liberal cover-up for the White House.) It’s often difficult for these myth-busters to say with certainty where a falsehood began. But the numbers are clear.
Of the 79 chain e-mails about national politics deemed false by PolitiFact since 2007, only four were aimed at Republicans. Almost all of the rest concern Obama or other Democrats. The claims range from daffy (the White House renaming Christmas trees as “holiday trees”) to serious (the health-care law granting all illegal immigrants free care).
Snopes turned up 46 viral e-mails regarding Bush during his eight years in office. By contrast, in just four years as a candidate and as president, Obama has been the subject of 100 such chain e-mails. The difference is not just in number but in kind: Twenty of the 46 Bush e-mails checked by Snopes turned out to be true, and many of these flattered or praised him. Only 10 e-mails about Obama have been true, and almost every one of them has been negative.
Emery estimates that more than 80 percent of the political e-mails that he’s vetted over the past decade were written from a conservative point of view.“The use of forwarded e-mail to spread [false information] around is overwhelmingly a right-wing phenomenon,” he said.
http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2011-11-17...
“The Internet is a megaphone that spreads conspiracies quickly before there’s anyone to correct the facts. There’s no one between your crazy uncle and his address book.”
The fake email problem comes from all sides of the political spectrum but it is strangely and selectively played on in partisan fashion by those supposedly neutral "fact checkers". In similar fashion to Rahm Immanuel's "Never let a good catastrophe go to waist", these sites will very often and very nimbly turn a redneck web lie into a plus for their Liberal leanings and lie in the opposite direction.

As an example, I just recently read a Snopes piece on the Ayers/Obama connection and about half-way through it, I began to smile to myself. The author kept denying that Ayers and Obama were liked in any serious fashion other than bumping into each other in a book store or walking the dog at the park.

But then they kept listing (albeit slowly and gradually) all of the panels, commissions, committees and New Party gatherings that they met at - but only by coincidence, of course.

In other words, they might have spent 50% of their verbiage denying any connection and the other 50% listing their connections.
Properly diluted, these two strategies might elude many readers. It did not me.

I trust Liberal media "Fact Checkers" no more than silly posters like fonicsilter who continually Copy-n-Paste from disingenuous websites that suggest they are conservative when they are, in fact, Progressive hiding behind a conservative link misnomer to attract the unsuspecting.

If you swim in sewers long enough, fonicsilter, people will soon fail to discern you from the media you swim in.

Just forget about babies' rights, persons in their own right, casually accept killing future human beings whose lives would have had their own purpose and meaning though.

This is the kind of Christianity you admire?

If so progressive secularist propaganda is confusing you.

Republicans need to learn to compete in the mud and not be intimidated by charges of racism.
They also need to stick to meaningful issues and drop the abortion stuff, which hurts them badly with many women who would otherwise vote Republican.
The folks from your church probably didn't vote anyway, because of Romney's religion. So what good are they?
You sure do assume a lot.

And there's nothing wrong with celebrating life and still use common sense to vote for the best candidate to lead the country.
