    Are you kidding me? A copy and paste of a shitload of articles with NO content. LOFL showing your stupidity again.

    You can't even debate any of the past 5 threads that you posted. You drop off a cut and paste and run when the heat is turned on.

    You're pathetic.

    Quoting ThinkProgress as a factual entity is laughable.

    It's nothing more than a journal of left leaning opinion.

    Their organization has had more retractions than the polar bear swimming club hitting the water.

    My department just laid off some people. No budget for them to work on anything. Is my boss now evil? If I was a owner/boss and it had to be done it has to be done. That's what leaders do.

    2. Mitt Romney's advice on the foreclosure crisis: "Don't try and stop the foreclosure process."
    [Mother Jones, 10/18/2011]

    Good!

    3. The former Bain Capital managing director said of Mitt Romney's tenure: "We had a scheme where the rich got richer."
    [Los Angeles Times, 12/16/200

    OK?, I get richer every day. One day I might be really rich if I keep playing my investments right. What's wrong with that?

    4. Mitt Romney set up shell companies in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda to avoid U.S. taxes.
    [Los Angeles Times, 12/19/2007

    I'd do it. I just increased my pay by 47% over a two week period and my net only increased 34%. This is especially sad because benefits were fixed. I understand what the government is doing, but I could use that money instead of a refund.


    5. Mitt Romney calls Obama's payroll tax cut that would save middle class/lower income families $1,500 a year "temporary little band aids."
    [Yahoo! News, 10/18/2

    NEWS FLASH, THEY ARE. Household incomes are down like $5,000


    6. Mitt Romney's first budget as governor included $240 million in fee increases.
    [Meet the Press, 12/16/20

    He was a Governor of a liberal state with many programs. He probably had to balance a budget. You know, that things all states have to do. Looks like leadership to me. If people vote for people that want all those programs he has to do it.

    7. As governor, Mitt Romney made it more expensive to use an ice skating rink, register a boat, take the bar exam, and transport hazardous waste.
    [Associated Press, The Boston Globe, 08/2

    See above, Leadership.

    [USA Today, 01/20/2008

    So did a lot of other idiot GOP. Should have seen the D plan we got, it was nearly 4x more.

    10. Under Mitt Romney's leadership, Massachusetts ranked 47th among the 50 states in job creation.
    [ThinkProgress, 06/2/2011]

    ThinkProgress? What was unemployment, what was population change?

    11. During Mitt Romney's tenure, Massachusetts' job growth was at 0.9 percent, far behind the national average of over 5 percent.
    [ThinkProgress, 06/2/2011

    ThinkProgress?

    15. Mitt Romney called the Occupy Wall Street movement "dangerous."
    [ThinkProgress, 10/4/20

    I think it was, don't you? A few people died. A lot of citizens didn't go to work. A lot of citizens didn't pay taxes. The few tax payers had to pay to clean it up.

    16. Mitt Romney's top economic adviser Greg Mankiw said the "offshoring" of American jobs was a good thing.
    [Washington Post, 02/11/200

    So? How many women do you see that aspire to be seamstresses? Seriously, we need to have this debate?

    17. Mitt Romney called for taxes on the poor, saying low-income Americans having no income tax liability is "a problem" that will "kill the country."
    [ThinkProgress, 09/21/20

    ThinkProgress? It is killing it, they vote with no impact on themselves but bounty! It is like bribery but legal!

    18. Mitt Romney called the auto bailout "tragic." After it succeeded his campaign claimed he "had the idea first."
    [ThinkProgress, 05/25/201

    ThinkProgress? Will I get viruses on this site?

    19. Back in 2002, a spokesman for Mitt Romney derided an anti-tax pledge as "government by gimmickry." He signed the Americans for Tax Reform pledge in 2011.
    [ThinkProgress, 06/29/2011

    ThinkProgress? TAX REFORM IS NOT ANTI-TAXATION. It does not mean that taxes will be raised. Our whole 75k+ page tax code needs to be tossed out. If you don't agree you're an idiot.

    20. Mitt Romney admits he couldn't reduce Massachusetts' multi-billion dollar budget deficit without new revenue.
    [The Boston Globe, 04/6/

    No shit, I bet there is a shit ton of state programs and benefits. New revenue can come in the form of more private sector jobs, more businesses and greater population.

    21. Mitt Romney would repeal the Dodd-Frank bill, which regulates the risky practices that led to the 2008 crisis.
    [ThinkProgress, 08/25/2011

    ThinkProgress? Have you read this piece of shit? It sets us up for another bubble all over again. It kills small banks. This whole bill is a piece of crap and needs to be redone.

    22. Mitt Romney, who lambasts the "failures" of government-backed mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, profits from investments in the firms.
    [ThinkProgress, 09/20/20

    ThinkProgress? If you had money and didn't profit during that time you're an idiot and wouldn't have money to begin with!

    23. Mitt Romney: "Corporations are people, my friend."
    [ThinkProgress, 08/11/201

    ThinkProgress? I belong to a corporation. It is made up of many people. It is owned by many people. It is more of a person than a union is.

    24. In 1996, Mitt Romney called the flat tax a "tax cut for fat cats." In 2011, Romney said "I love a flat tax."
    [New York Times, 10/24/

    15 year difference. I wonder what he has learned since then? Possibly the added growth in the economy that would occur if we had a flat tax?
    Fun

    Why you work on number 1 da IDIOT, I'll take number 2.

    He said that because manipulating the market is picking winners and loosers. All the people who have lived in their homes long before the housing boom and bust came along, who were responsible are the people who were mostly screwed over by the foreclosure relief that for many of the people who sought relief, found it to be temporary anyway.

    Housing values are being manipulated. Its called cronyism anyway you look at it. Picking winners and loosers , just like the GM bailout. You can call it statism too, probably a few more ism's.

    The market should be left to run its course.

    I THINK WE SHOULD RENAME THIS THREAD TO daIDIOTS CUT AND PASTE OF NONFACTUAL BULLSHIT.

    29. As governor, Mitt Romney vetoed a minimum wage increase to $8 an hour.

    2. Do not post links or cut & paste unless you are offering a detailed opinion or input along with them. Anyone can search Google and read the news. This applies to extreme right or left websites and news and informational sites. The forum is not a link farm.

    Default Here you go you whiny little biatch

    Steve Wynn said shove it up your azz daIdiot. Here you go, a cut paste for you since you like them so much.




    On the Tuesday broadcast of the nightly Nevada political program "Ralston Reports," Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts sat down with host Jon Ralston to discuss the presidential election.

    Wynn, an outspoken critic of President Obama, didn't hold back in his latest criticism of the incumbent president seeking a second term.

    "I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bulls-eye painted on our back," Wynn said about Obama to Ralston. An excerpt of the interview is below.

    WYNN: I've created about 250,000 direct and indirect jobs according to the state of Nevada's measurement. If the number is 250,000, that's exactly 250,000 more than this president, who I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bulls-eye painted on our back.
