Did you think we wouldn't find out or what, Mitt???There is more evidence out today showing that Mitt Romney has been lying for years about his position at Bain Capital. As I wrote about earlier this week ("Mitt Romney is lying repeatedly to hide his past as a job-killing tax cheat"), Romney's claims that he left Bain Capital in 1999, before much of the outsourcing and company bankrupting took place, have proven to be false. Today, the Boston Globe has a devastating new piece out titled "Mitt Romney stayed at Bain 3 years longer than he stated". In it, they reveal an additional NINE SEC filings
The hypocrisy of Mackinac Center co-founder Richard McLellan on “corporate speech” and “buying elections”
Money is not speech & corporations are not people if they disagree with me…
Earlier this year, Governor Rick Snyder did an endrun around the state legislature by entering into an “interlocal agreement” with Canada to build a new bridge in Michigan between our two countries. The owner of one of the current bridges, Matty Moroun, has spent enormous sums of money fighting this since it will negatively impact his income. Using paid signature gatherers, Moroun has been able to get enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot this fall if it is certified by the Board of State Canvassers.…
Romney characterizes supporters of the Affordable Care Act as just “wanting more free stuff” from the government (UPDATED)
Seriously, Mitt, can't you go just a couple hours without being a total dick?After writing not one but TWO pieces about the utter dickishness of Mitt Romney toward African Americans yesterday, I took a few hours off to go to a summer birthday party [Happy 30th, Jesse! Nice party, Jaimie!] "It's not like he's going to be more of a dick today after all of that, right?" I thought to myself. I could not have been more wrong. Last night, a pool report came out quoting Mitt Romney talking about being booed by the NAACP crowd in Houston and describing supporters of the Affordable Care Act as just "wanting more free stuff" from the government.
Mitt Romney: plumbing new depths in cynical panderingEarlier today, I wrote about Mitt Romney getting booed during his appearance at the NAACP annual meeting in Houston. In a update, I referenced Steve Benen's suggestion that he was intentionally provocative. As it turns out, Benen was right. Proof after the jump.
I was contacted yesterday by a writer for Voice of Russia, the Russian government’s official international radio broadcasting service, formerly known as Radio Moscow. I was asked about the ongoing debate regarding extending the Bush tax cuts and Mitt Romney stashing some of his income in offshore tax havens.
You can read the piece titled “Obama pulling Romney into fight over Bush-era tax cuts” in English HERE. I’m quoted heavily along with a guy, also named Chris, from Fox News.
I’m pretty sure I was the superior intellect ; )
Dude, what the HELL were you thinking???Mitt Romney stepped into the lion's den today to address the annual NAACP conference in Houston, Texas this morning. Not surprisingly, he talked down to them, basically telling them they don't understand him. He then went on to talk about repealing the Affordable Care Act and got himself loudly booed. Video of the booing and much more after the jump.
