yeah, this is important stuff...
not like the fluff the media overlooked...
like obama's relationship with ayers, or, how obama bought a $1,000,000 house from convicted felon tony rezko, or, obama's 20 years in a racist, antisemitic church.

if you had a clue, you'd be dangerous.

Oh, what's the big deal?
If we started discounting Republican candidates for taking money from shady people, There wouldn't be a Republican party....

More "small" things from the doting MSM.

"If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."

“We can’t nominate such a weak candidate. I’d love to be able to get one-on-one with Gov. Romney and expose the record that would be the weakest record we could possibly put up against Barack Obama.”

If only the Brits had a guy like Romney to guide them. Romney walked into a scandal and cleaned it up, thus preventing the embarassment to the US that is now presenting itself to our friends across the pond.

“You can’t be a perfectly lubricated weather vane on the important issues of the day, whether it’s Libya, whether it’s the debt ceiling, whether it’s the discussion around the Kasich bill in Ohio, where Gov. Romney has been missing in action in terms of showing any kind of leadership.”

This same "Brit scandal" guy worked for Romney. And Salt Lake was a stew of scandal.

Try harder.

From the article:
"In Salt Lake City, Dizdarevic was embroiled in a scandal that shook the Olympic movement and led to Romney, then a private-equity executive at Bain Capital in Boston, being enlisted to steer the 2002 Games out of trouble."

Hence, the scandal existed before Romney was involved. Romney, in fact was hired to clean up the mess and did so. Also acording to the report, the charges eventually were tossed out by a federal judge after this guy testified.

This is yet another non-issue dreamt up by the Obama campaign to distract from the real issues: Obama's record:
Longest period of high unmployment in history.
Longest period of stagnant economy in history.
Continued attacks on the middle class in the form of taxes, including the Onbamacare tax, and denigration of their accomplishments in establishing and maintaining a business even in these historically bad economic times.
And, lest we forget: A policy of Terrorism rather than diplomacy in the Middle East.

No, this is a news European service article. It was not "...dreamt up by the Obama campaign..."
You have no idea of Romney's perfidy because he burned all the records. It is HOWARD HUGHES all over again.

The stagant economy is due to the mis-administation and deregulation of the credit markets by the Cheney-Bush administration; exacerbated by the do-nothing GOP majority in the Congress with the Filibuster-mad strong minority in the Senate.

The weak job market, obviously, is due to this Bush-hangover economy.

The attack on the US middle class is waged by the very wealthy, who campaign for tax cuts for the rich. The Koch brothers, and their tea-bag puppets lead this attack on working Americans. Romney is certainly on board.

This same group are the ones who sponsor politicians from both major arties to continue allowing illegal aliens to live and work in our country. This lowers our standard of living, and their expenses.

And if, by "terrorism" you mean that President Obama has killed many MURDERER/TERRORIST al Qaeda leaders such as Osama Bin Laden, Anwar al-Aulaqi, and Abu Yahya al-Libi Rather than letting them go free as GW Bush did, GUILTY.

"The stagant economy is due to the mis-administation and deregulation of the credit markets by the Cheney-Bush administration"

I've heard the claim, but not seen the proof.

Exactly how did this deregulation occur?
