xuenchen, do you not realize that Mitt Romney is what you yourself would call a "communist". Why are you cheer-leading him? He runs the same kind of crony capitalism that Obama does.

Do they realize how ridiculous it sounds? Tax forms vs. Report card. One is completely relevant, the other one isn't.


It's only because 'birthers' can no longer claim Obama has never released his BC (he has, twice), so they reset the goal post to go after something else, like his college grades. Call them "transcripters" if you will. Talking-heads like Limbaugh are using it as another way to attack Obama by now defending Romney from releasing his tax returns (something every candidate does as a gesture of good faith), i.e. Romney shouldn't have to release anything of his background so long as the Birthers/transcripters can keep finding some irrelevant record from Obama's past that hasn't been released. It's a dishonest argument.

Easy to fake Birth Certificate, hard to fake college transcripts.

Once again who cares about grades, his college application will tell all, especially what Obama listed as his place of birth. My guess it will be Kenya since that is what was listed in his literary biography.

That is why his transcripts are sealed.

Your intentionally trying to deflect this thread, this isn't a birther topic, this topic is about congressman wanting to investigate Romney and how he amassed $100 million into his IRA and whether or not how he did it was legal or not.

If you want to talk about birther theories please start your own thread.

this topic is about congressman


Don't see it that way considering all the hyperbole in the thread hating a rich dude hey Romenys rich hes evil it's not like anyone was going to vote for him.

Congress should know since they write the laws and now feign ignorance typical moronic congressman and it is not all congressmen now is it?

It is those Democratic millionaire congressman.

The tax return Romney has released show a enormous IRA account, this raises legal and ethical questions.

I guess it raises legal and ethical questions for some.

Who cares?

All the anti Romney people were never going to vote for him anyway it seems the only people who are not allowed to have any money is the right wingers the left can have all their millions they want.

IF the only thing people are making the issue of Romneys bank accounts just means they got nothing and will stoop to ay level to make sure that millionaire sitting in the oval office and those millionaires in congress get a free pass.

The hypocrisy is thick Buffet and Soros the billionaires and others never seen leftists ever make any issue out of their bank accounts.

So you don't care if Romney is a criminal, liar, or fraud?

Ignore that he;

Supports the federal reserve

Supported the wall street bailout

Personally outsourced

Implemented Romneycare, nearly identical to Obamacare

Raising taxes on small business owners

Abuses animals

Romney didn't create the federal reserve or expand it's powers the people in the op who are just so interested in Romneys bank account.

Romney didn't bailout unions or throw billions of tax payer money to Gm that outsourced to countries of China,Canada, and Mexico and the Solyndras etc.

Romney did sign the care act that has over 20 new taxes on the middle class or did raise taxes on smokers and cloves and others. or a tanning tax etc.

Romney doesn't eat dogs.

Romney earned his money, Obama cheated and deceived many people to earn his millions.


Are you kidding me? Romney inherited his money, then raped companies to make more.



I'm not a Romney fan, however you are passing off a lie here. Romney donated the money he inherited. His present fortune he made on his own.

So you're going to ignore the point in the OP article because you don't like the people asking the question?

Because he hasn't had the power to. He sure will though, he supported the wall-street bailouts.


Romney did sign the care act that has over 20 new taxes on the middle class


Romney implemented Romneycare in MA. He raised taxes there as a result. Obamacare just went and copied that. Romneys presidential tax plan is to raise taxes on small business owners and anyone that makes under 200k.


Romney doesn't eat dogs.


But he has no problem abusing them, classic psychopathic behavior

There was no point of the op except leftists hating on a rich right winger.

The rest of that post was garbage.

Then you should read it again. The whole point was how did Romneys IRA get so big? It seems mathematically impossible unless he is breaking the law or lying somewhere.

Considering that no one is this thread is an accountant or tax attorney better secure what is mathematically impossible

Or they could just google IRA's and take the time to read instead of lie just because they hate right wingers and rich folk.

7. from here looks like a likely candidate:

The point is congress wants to know how Romney did this, and not just mere speculation.

The amount in his IRA is extreme and un reachable for regular citizens. Were laws broken? if not what loopholes were used.

Romney releasing his taxes will be the end of him, and soon he might not have a choice.


The point is....why does the Government want to know what a private citizen did with their money?

This is only half the story...at least from reading the "reports". They are asking how did it get to "100 million" but are trying to connect to to contributions. Never mind compound interest (I thought they taught this in high school), investments and rollovers (all legal mind you).

Real, you are a smart guy but you seem to be getting caught up in the hype.
