MSNBC’s Morning Joe was talking about the Obama Campaign’s latest ad, so I went online a checked it out…

Wow; that is a very powerful indictment of RINO Mitt Romney’s years a Bain… and I think that President Obama’s fundraiser tonight shows that he will take his message right into the belly of the beast.

It's about time Willard's Bain years are exposed. Voters will see what a POS Willard really is.

Meanwhile, Willard's kid got booed off the stage in Aryanzona.

Eduardo Saverin, the Facebook co-founder who gave up his U.S. citizenship, has nothing against the U.S., just its complicated rules on U.S. citizens holding money overseas, a spokesman said.

Mr. Saverin, who now lives in Singapore, decided last year to renounce his U.S. citizenship, a decision that was made public a few days ago. The move sparked an outcry among some tax experts who suspect he’s aiming to save on taxes. Although Mr. Saverin will have to pay a hefty exit tax for renouncing his citizenship, based on some calculation of his assets, Singapore is a relatively low-tax jurisdiction, particularly for foreign investors, and does not levy capital gains tax. Thus he could save in the longer term.

In a political environment that’s rife with talk of raising taxes on the wealthy, Mr. Saverin’s case could become another flash point.

Saverin spokesman Tom Goodman said Sunday his renunciation was prompted not by tax considerations but by U.S. rules that make it more difficult for U.S. citizens to live and invest overseas.

“U.S. citizens are severely restricted as to what they can invest in and where they can maintain accounts,” said spokesman Tom Goodman.“Many foreign funds and banks won’t accept Americans. This was a financial rather than a tax motive.”

[More from WSJ.com : The Facebook-Free Baby]

It’s true many U.S. expats complain that American rules are making life more difficult for them. Those include the U.S. tax system’s global reach (many countries tax based on residency); foreign bank account reporting rules; and the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), which requires foreign financial institutions to start reporting to the IRS on U.S. citizens’ accounts.

Expats say as a result of all the regulations, some foreign banks are dumping more U.S. customers. Mr. Goodman also cited FATCA, among other rules, as a problem for Mr. Saverin.

[More from WSJ.com : How Facebook Could Trip Up Investors]

Treasury Department officials say they don’t see evidence of a systemic problem for Americans living abroad arising from FATCA. People as wealthy as Mr. Saverin tend to have an easier time untangling red tape than the average U.S. retiree living abroad.

The spokesman said Mr. Saverin plans to continue to invest in tech companies around the world, including the U.S.

“His decision had nothing to do with dissatisfaction here, but with his strong desire to do business there,” Mr. Goodman said. He also plans a charitable foundation.

The Democrats ad is pure bullshit. The problems they "exposed" happened two years after Gov. Romney left to go clean up the corruption in the Olympics. Once again the Democrats have proven their total stupidity. They never think we will check their "facts" It looks like the whole party is made up of Affirmative action people. So funny.

America has entered into the hell hole

When I was a boy America was a great country, People worked hard for what they had, They grew their own food and they canned their own food, they had family dinners together, They watched 3-4 hours of television and went to bed, Got up early and went to work once again, There wasn’t any class envy, or liberals indoctrinating our children, If you went to a college you received the education that you paid for, Instead of receiving an indoctrination. The leftist have infiltrated our schools and our government.
They teach class warfare and liberal coward policy.
Children are now taught that there is no need to work hard, They are indoctrinated into believing liberal government policy is the fix to all problems, They are told that they cant think for themselves, it reminds me of the Hitler youth program. Union radicals have now made our children American terrorists. Little Bill Ayres programmed to be OWS protestors. They are indoctrinated by radical union school teachers and professors that Business is bad in our country. They are radically taught that Rich people are bad people, and that they can never be rich. They are taught that socialism is good, and capitalism is bad.
Its time that every parent in this country reaches down and pulls themselves up by their , Bootstraps and Go down to the local schools and personally speak with these radical liberal union democrat teachers.
We must as a people “Wake Up” to the leftist agenda in this country!
The left is pushing for a “GOD LESS”“Moral less” Country.
If this isn’t what you stand for , You must speak out. If you still have Christian values in your household, its now time you have an awakening in your family. Our country is still Center right, Marriage is still just between one man and one woman. We are still a Capitalist country.
Its time that the Silent majority register to vote and get ready to speak loudly. Our country is in trouble and its time for a major awakening, Liberals intend to take your weapons, take your religious freedoms, and slowly remove your Constitutional rights one by one. Remember Hitler took everyone's weapons and gave them all free radios and then took over the radio stations. If you do not learn from history you are doomed to repeat it. I suggest all American citizens read books and study history. I suggest you all make it your job to wake up your neighbors. I suggest you take Obama at his own words. I suggest you listen and watch what is going on in your country and your local community.
Leftists are trying to get you to remove your flag poles and your crosses. Liberals will kill the unborn and not think twice about doing so. But do not ever water board a terrorist. These modern day American terrorists will steal your children and kill your family, They are already flying drones over your home, your private property. They have no respect for your right to privacy. They tell you that you can note smoke, and they want to tell you what kind of vehicle that you can own. They strive for $8.00 a gallon gasoline, They have drove up the price of food, and the cost of your utilities, This Obama and his indoctrinated followers will destroy your life and destroy our country, and now they seek absolutely more intervention.
And the liberal media still wont report on the young Obama's drug use history.
His father was a Marxist and a woman abuser, But the liberal press covers it up. The German press also suppressed Adolf Hitlers back ground.
Sound familiar? Now the Obama admin is coming up with a strategy to be able to use the race card and the gay card and induce more voter fraud in order to wax over the people. You had better all wake up soon, Before this country is completely lost.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!

This is a very important election, and yes, people with the old fashioned morals, and values will come out , and vote this time. Some people missed the last couple elections because they told themselves it was just one vote, but now we know if it is close the "dead" voters will steal the election, so we better make sure we vote. While the Democrats would like you to believe we are all without morals so it doesn't matter who we vote for, we will vote for the man who loves this country, is a good father, and husband, and will make us all proud to be Americans again.

psst... this thread is talking about Obama fundraising at a private equity firm,

"President Barack Obama is due to attend a fundraiser hosted by one of private equity's leading lights on Monday evening, the same day his campaign launched a scathing attack against his Republican rival Mitt Romney's private equity record."

Yikes!

No wonder you changed the subject.

If you're so smart, post a link. Bishop Romney's ad are not so flattering to Obama. Obama doesn't have a chance, when it comes to buying the election.
