President Obama’s CBS Interview & His Campaign’s BAIN Focus Has Shades Of Enron Scandal

You all know the old saying: What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Well now romney has had his day in the sun indirectly calling out President Obama’s legitimacy as a US. CITIZEN. Remember aligning himself with Donald Trump, a BIRTHER. And he even questioned his religious aspiriations in turning America into a secular nation.

Remember Kenneth Lay, ENRON CEO?

Let’s GO THERE

Now let’s review these videos:

Does Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital connections have CRIMINAL IMPLICATIONS?

Were American companies run by Bain Capital hit by a Smooth Criminal?

Who is RESPONSIBLE, if Mitt Romney claims he isn’t?

Will we see a presidential candidate be crowned “FELONIOUS MITT?

See how this works, Mitt Romney? You don’t get to alignn yourself with racists, birthers and call the President of the United States of America a liar, and not get called out for your NEFARIOUS dealings while you worked at BAIN CAPITAL. So yes, the Black President is questioning YOU Mitt; your white privileged, entitled ass about whether you have committted a felony.

If we don’t learn from our history, we’re DOOMED to repeat it.

    Yes, Romney Perjured Himself

    The claim that he committed a felony by falsely reporting his role at Bain Capital under oath is what has really gotten under Romney’s skin. But it seems pretty clear to me that he signed a federal financial disclosure form, under the penalty of perjury, saying he had not been involved “in any way” with Bain after he left for Utah in February 1999. That’s a strong statement. And it is directly undercut by Romney’s own statement in his 2002 attempt to prove residency to run for governor:
    Romney testified that “there were a number of social trips and business trips that brought [him] back to Massachusetts, board meetings” while he was running the Olympics. He added that he remained on the boards of several companies, including the Lifelike Co., in which Bain Capital held a stake until 2001…

    “He succeeded in that three-year period in restoring confidence in the Olympic Games, closing that disastrous deficit and staging one of the most successful Olympic Games ever to occur on US soil,” said Peter L. Ebb from Ropes & Gray, [his lawyer at the 2002 hearing].

    “Now while all that was going on, very much in the public eye, what happened to his private and public ties to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts? And the answer is they continued unabated just as they had.”

    So the question of whether Romney committed a felony in his financial disclosure form is a very real one – because Romney and Romney’s lawyer provide the strongest evidence that it was perjury. Now we have more contemporaneous evidence that Romney perjured himself:

    During the 2002 hearing — in a remark that has not been previously reported — Romney said that after he departed Bain in February 1999 he went through a transition period regarding his work in Boston.

    When a lawyer challenging his eligibility asked Romney, “Did you remain more or less continuously in Salt Lake City from February ’99 to the end of the year,” Romney answered: “Actually, there was some transition away from my work in Boston for the first few months and then I pretty much stayed there after.” Trying to clarify this, the lawyer, after referring to this “transition,” asked, “So from February through the end of the year you were pretty much full-time out in Utah, right?” Romney replied: “Well again, the beginning of the year was a good deal of time back and forth, but towards the last half of the year it was pretty much exclusively in Utah.”

    If there was a good deal of time back and forth in the first few months and some business conducted all the way through to December (“pretty much exclusively”), and if Romney’s own lawyer tells an inquiry that Romney’s work for Bain “continued unabated just as they had,” then it is incontrovertibly true that Romney’s statement under oath that he was not involved “in any way” in Bain business after February 1999 was a lie under oath.

    I thought Republicans cared about perjury when it comes to high office. I mean, they impeached a sitting president for it. But their current candidate is an obvious perjurer and thereby a felon. How long will it take before this sinks in?

    REPOST – MITT ROMNEY RETROACTIVELY” RETIRED?

  3. rikyrah says:

    I don’t know if this has been brought up, but there is a wicked karma going on here.

    Willard only sang America the Beautiful, because he was trying to imitate the President after he sang Al Green.

    That the campaign would turn around and then use his mimicking the President against him in this way….

    Karma remains undefeated.

    Boy, I can imagine Ann Romney throwing any object she can get her hands on against the wall behind the scene. It was she who first suggested that her husband be shielded from the press and avoid taking part in any additional debates during the GOP Primary. This latest bit of information about Romney’s role at Bain after 1999 has to get under the Romneys’ skin and that of their supporters and advisers. I encountered a poster at Think Progress today who gave me a glimpse of what Romney’s supporters have been driven to do. The person said that Romney is justified in being secretive about Bain, his finances, and tax records because after being elected, PBO made some of his documents “private,” too. This is something I’d never heard of until this person posted it at TP. It wouldn’t surprise me if this new conspiracy theory pops up on Fox News and at other sources for RW media next week. The Romney Campaign thought that PBO had no way to inflict wounds against Romney, but he had a plan, and once it was implemented, it has been devastating for Romney and for GOPers. The GOP never saw it coming. Romney wasted a lot of time yesterday running to media outlets to repeat the same lies he’s been telling, so I was very pleased to see “CBS Evening News” report today on the discrepancy between what Romney said in his interviews and what the SEC documents state as documented facts. Trap set, target enters trap, trap snaps shut, target boxed in. If Romney thinks revamping his communications system for his campaign will make him more palatable to the average American voter, he’s very delusional. His problem isn’t his communications system. His problem is his lying and secretive behavior.

      Who took out the Clinton Machine? as rikyrah has reminded us, Mitt Romney was delaing with grifters and amatuers in the GOP primaries. Noiw he’s howling foul and begging for POTUS to apologize to him. He’s got some fucking nerve. He like McCain have such a disdain for the black President. It’s not enough being white and rich any moe Mitt. Come to the fight with more than your whiteness, a whine, and a shitload of money.

      Just the thought of Mitt Romney’s arrogance, thinking that he would NOT be challenged by the OBAMA camp on his Bain Capital & MA Governor Tenures, sends a chill up my spine.

  7. Ametia says:

    Ultimately, I think, Mr. Romney is going to have to answer those questions because if he aspires to being president, one of the things you learn is you’re ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations.

    – Barack Obama
