is it true that Romney as Governor vetoed a law preventing outsourcing of jobs paid for by taxpayers

Massachusetts lost 14% of its manufacturing jobs (double the national rate) because he vetoed legislation that would have banned companies doing business with the state from outsourcing jobs to other countries. I

how does Romney get $100 million IRA with a $5K annual contribution limit

I think I need to see every year of taxes in deatil to understand that travesty

AnnR:how lucky we are to have someone with Mittís qualifications....to run the country

All I can say is wow.
He's going to RUN the country
He's not going to serve the country
He's not going to serve 47% of the people
In fact, he's not even going to serve the other 53% of the people
He's going to run the country.

My question is what the heck does that mean?
When he was CEO of Bain, he claimed he wasn't responsible for anything that Bain did....and he retired retroactively.
So even when he was CEO he wasn't CEO.
Beyond clueless

had to share, funny Romney image

"Conventional wisdom going into this election stated that a vaguely human-looking block of wood, if it managed to obtain the Republican nomination, would be able to win. Why not? Presidents, conventional wisdom continued, warming to its subject, simply donít get reelected in economies like this."


Romney Hood, stealing from the poor to give to the rich

as in emptying workers pension funds and giving yourself and staff huge bonuses.

I certainly heard people feeling entitled this campaign....

I think it was when Ann said "its our turn"....
Can't think of anything comparable on the democratic side about a sense of entitlement, can you?

(Top 10) Things Romney/Ryan can do to turn things around---

10) have their son who vehemently protested a hospice because it would lower property values speak on their behalf about how much they care about people who are suffering in life
9) have 10 people who Bain destroyed their jobs talk about how much happier they are now that they have so much time to spend with their families
8) have Massachusetts voters talk about how glad they were that Romney helped cool down the job market in Massachusetts
7) have some vietnam vets thank Romney for risking his life in Paris while they were in Nam.
6) have an even more elder elder of the Mormon Church saying that maybe the Romney's tithed their 10%
5) have Romney's tax attorney's say that they had illness in the family and that's why Romney's tax return isn't ready yet
4) have the Cayman Island counterparty say that Romney is really generous when he comes to visit his money, he actually tips the taxi driver $5 (US)
3) have their illegal gardeners talk about how easy it is to be a Mexican in America and Romney's really brave to run for office given his background
2) (Queen) Ann says of course they care about the poor, they gave their housekeeper two days off to bury her parents after the earthquake in Haiti
1) Romney apologizes for not making it clear which 47% he meant...he meant only the non-white 47%

This is an attempt at sarcasm!

pretty fricking arrogant to call almost everyone's grandparents moochers

all the stay at home mom's who never worked out of their homes and retired on their spouses benefits
and all the grandfathers that worked for 40 years until they retired
or the veterans who fought in wars so that the Romney's could have a private chef while he was in Paris

moochers, every one of them

I think the difference is gratitude and empathy

I'm 1/2 generation American. I was born here but my 20 month older brother was not.
My first language was not English, although I barely speak it anymore.
My GOP loving father beat his wife and his pre-school aged children.
When my mother divorced him, she was abandoned by her family because divorce was against the religion but apparently wife and child beating were A-ok.
My father abandoned my brother and I. He didn't even bother paying the $11/week child support for 2 children.
Got married/divorced to 3 other women.
Went to Church and believed himself to be a superior human being.
Sent literally thousands to the GOP to support them: happily showed me letters from former President's that he was a pioneer or some such thing.
Died alone, not because I would have refused to see him but because his wife refused to let us know about his illness even though she had abandoned him (other than his money).
I remember receiving charity. I remember wearing used clothing. I remember being cared for by an elderly neighbor while my 20 year old mom was trying to support two children. I remember my mom taking us to a homeless shelter and soup kitchen so that would help other people instead of thinking about what we didn't have.
I don't want other children or young mothers to have it as hard as we had it.
I am grateful for all the help we received when we were needy.
I pay my taxes because I want a society where there is fewer children hungry, homeless or suffering.
I'm not a fool. I am choosing to try my little part to make the world better.
I will never support an agenda which abandons those who need our help.

Its time for Romney to go all-in

those 100's of millions sitting in tax shelters overseas...time to bring them home and try to buy your ambiton
Just because it didn't work for Whitman, doesn't mean it isn't a good idea
