Mitt Romney Could Recoup Extra Tax Payments After Election With Amended Return

Mitt Romney Could Recoup Extra Tax Payments After Election With Amended Return

Commented Sep 22, 2012 at 08:41:51 in Politics

“I thought he didn't take a salary. How did he "donate several million from these jobs" if he didn't take a paycheck?

Look, I know that Mitt has given millions to the Mormon Church. That has given young Mormon men and women the chance to do missionary work in France like Mitt did during the Vietnam war, and other notable projects. But that doesn't change the fact that the only reason why Mitt "Thurston Howell" Romney would stoop to doing mid-level government work would be increase his chances in winning the most powerful job in the world. His "path to the presidency" started a long time ago.”

“He was already incredibly wealthy, so those jobs weren't about padding his bank account. Those jobs were resume builders. Something he could hang his hat on when he ran for president.”

“Donated over seveal million from these jobs to charity, and that is the best you could come up with? Typical.”

“I'm amazed at how long they're sticking to a lie. In past elections, they'd put the lie out there and quickly move on to the next one. Now they are sticking to their false narrative, calling into question the "liberal" fact checkers. They are bold in their deceit.”

Aerobat on Sep 2, 2012 at 18:40:48

“Here is why you should not be amazed:
For the past 12 to 16 years, the GOP has developed and refined a strategy of repeating a lie until it is accepted as truth. First one of their key members says it, then it goes into talking points and each of their of their propaganda surrogates (like Faux News) start repeating it ... and people think; "Well if it's coming from all these different, unrelated sources, it must be true?"

Here is why it might not work anymore:
In the past, when it popped up again, we would have said, "Oh, we've already dealt with that lie ..." and let it blow over. Now we pounce on it again.

We should treat these lies the same way Smokey the Bear treats smoldering Campfires. Anytime we see a ember, we must go on the offensive and throw more water on it.

Every spark of a lie must be extinguished and the perpetrator must be called out for their dishonesty. Sometimes it is as simple as asking them to "Prove it."”

“They are nihilists whose tactics closely resemble those of totalitarian movements that deliberately adopted the Big Lie approach. Along the way they destroy the logic of free elections with people making choices on issues as well as personalities.”

“Kind of a cool idea. I have a Kindle, but I do read sometimes at night on my Galaxy Tab. I can read off my tablet or cell phone just fine as long as it's not for hours.

So, yeah, this wouldn't be a game changer for me, but I'd get it as an option next time I update my Kindle.

Supposedly Amazon is working on a "Color E-ink" Kindle. They even bought a company that was working on the technology. Haven't heard about it for awhile, so no new info on it. Amazon is so secretive, you really don't know what they are releasing until just about launch date.”
