In particular, the documents shed considerable light on the operation of controversial “blocker corporations” set up by Bain in tax havens like the Cayman Islands to help the investment firm delay business income taxes. Such “blockers” are not illegal but the Treasury Department has said in the past that they cost the United States millions in lost revenue every year.

Let's get something straight with the Gossip site Gawker
Note all of he evil talk of suspicious Cayman island banking accounts mentioned in this thread... Then read this
Apparently, nobody thought to tell the boys on the Romney beat that Gawker Media is part of a shell company incorporated in the Cayman Islands. Gawker’s money lives in the same neighborhood as Romney’s money. Call it bipartisanship.
Don't you think he should explain WHY he is hiding the origins and actual amounts of his vast fortune from the US Government and American People while at the same time demanding to be appointed leader of that same government and people?

Let's think about your statement for a while and then take a trip back in my neato time machine to 2008 and a failed vetting process of then Candidate Obama.

It was only a matter of time for something like this to leak.
Romney is hiding something in his tax returns...and it seems like he is hiding even more in his retirement package.
It will be interesting to see how much damage this does and how much additional pressure is put on Romney to release his taxes.
Obama is hiding something in is Collage records and transcripts. It would be interesting to see how a lower class person got into these prestige collages after saying in his own words how his" last two years of high school were a bluer" from doing drugs all day long.
I guess Romneys taxes are more important. O you Romney.... I know your hidding something..he must be one of those "rich" people like obama is..

"I guess Obama can sleep easy knowing they won't be leaking any documents on him. Can't leak documents that don't exist. Perhaps some college transcripts but I personally think all physical records of Obama have been confiscated and destroyed long ago."
Why not stick to the topic, which is Romney, not Obama? Post your (weak and imaginary) suspicions on your own threads.
"I don't care about Romney's past with Bain Capital. This is a free country and capitalism is what we're about. To demonize that only shows how anti-capitalist his opposition is."
No, libs aren't "anti-capitalism." Libs are anti-corruption. See the distinction?
Libs aren't against prosperity. They're against prosperity gained off the backs of others, gained from other's loss of jobs, their health care, their pensions, and their hopes.
It's another distraction because Obama can't run on his record; if's dismal. He makes Carter look like a wild success.edit on 24-8-2012 by axslinger because: (no reason given)

read the sig line. The guy says he spells poorly due to being deaf until age 12. Whereas you have apparently been stupid your whole life. Obama is hiding plenty. He is the least transparent president in history. Everyone is worried about how much money Romney has and where and when he got it. It makes no difference anyway. He is part of the political elite, born with a silver spoon and all that. Dem or Rep, makes little difference, just two heads of the same snake. They all use the power for their personal gain. This can be evidenced by the Bush daughter working as a journalist for NBC. She was a school teacher by training. Same with the Clinton daughter. She was on NBC as a journo too. But apparently she didn't make the cut, so now she is an investment banker at some shadowy hedge fund. Open eyes and ears, close mouth, then you can learn something...
