    While there's a good chance Rmoney has broken no laws, a look at the way he uses, manipulates, and manages his money shows just why Wall Street loves him. I think the Democrats should introduce legislation to close the loopholes that Rmoney has used to enrich himself, but first of course Romney has got to answer the questions his trustee promised to answer.

    Can The Romney Camp Keep Avoiding Questions About His Enormous IRA? | TPMDC

    ... questions have persisted for months about an individual retirement account held by the Romneys valued at upwards of $100 million — a stunning amount for a savings vehicle designed to provide middle class retirees comfortable, but non-lavish retirement.

    His IRA raises two key questions, both of which his campaign has consistently declined to answer: How, despite a $6000 legal limit on annual contributions to an IRA, did Romney’s IRA grow to over $100 million? And did he avoid any U.S. taxes on its enormous returns?

    Rather look at the sweetheart deal the criminal Rezko for Obama when he got his house and the adjacent house, the media wasn't interested in that...

    The definition of a liberal: Someone who thinks we should be more concerned with what Romney does with his money than what Obama does with ours.

    Not to worry.

    If Obama get another term he will drain his account dry.

    And, Obama will create more jobs right after his next stimulus.

    Well it's not like Obama has any accompishments to run for re election on. THe Jobs report was another disaster.

    So innuendo and smear are the order of the day for Axelrod.

    Obama's done well. I think the Dems should do an ad showing how many jobs the stimulus added and how many jobs the Tea Party governors cut. We'd be in far better shape if it wasn't for all the layoffs of teachers and other government workers.

    There's no innuendo and smear. If Rmoney really has $100 million in his 401K, then he should explain how he achieved that given the laws, why he chooses to put his money in foreign banks rather than in American banks, and whether he legally circumvented the tax. Those reasonable questions are naturally scary to those who want Rmoney to win.

    But, face it, PF, smear and innuendo are going to be part and parcel of this campaign, sort of like the smear and innuendo directed against Kerry that worked so effectively.

    Well the 12+ million who are unemployed the nillions who went on disability because they can't find a job, the underemployed and thos who fell between the cracks and dropped out of the owrkforce disagree that Obama has done a good job.

    The campaign wants to talk about anything besides the Obama record. So deflections about Romney's bank account while the press ignored Obama's relationship with Rezko.

    THe Obama campaign will be all smear because they don't have a record to be proud of.


    BTW people who sell their homes next year and thereafter will pay a 3.8% Obamacare tax.

    Speaking only for myself, I'd love to see such an ad. A generous estimate would be 1 job for every quarter million dollars spent.

    Nothing like mortgaging the future and f-ing over our own children at the rate of $250,000 spent per job added! :singing: :singing:

    I'll take Rmoney over Ofailure any day of the week. :singing:
