Mittens Gets Caught In A WHOPPER Of A Lie And The Media Actually Takes Notice?

Holy crap! This must be the end times!

But we’ll see how long it lasts. If you don’t know by now, Mitt Romney was still listed as the CEO, sole stockholder and overall master of Bain Capital until 2002, three years after he claims to have left. Why is this important? Because Romney’s entire defense against the ongoing “vulture capitalism” and “outsourcing” attacks against him is that he wasn’t at Bain for the worst offenses. Except, according to the papers filed with the SEC, he was.

This is the ultimate lose-lose for Romney. If the SEC papers are correct and he was still active, he committed a felony by lying about his role after 1999. If he wasn’t active but still listed as CEO and collecting pay as such, he was getting paid to do nothing. Either way, he’s going to get hammered by the Obama campaign and it’s going to be difficult to spin this one on Fox.

Of course, the third option is that the “liberal” media, sensing that their gravy train is going to dry up if Romney becomes too unpopular, will “forget” to dig into this or they’ll suddenly “find” a Democratic scandal to even things up a bit. Gotta keep the horse race close, after all. They need those ratings!

    Isn’t it a shame that your comment (they need those ratings” pretty much sums up the “news” profession in 2012.

    I don’t think Romney’s too worried, there are always sheeple who will believe whatever spin they can create. Like how Bain actually *created* jobs! See, they’re not bad!

    And yes, that was actually used by someone in an argument with me. Rural USA, gotta love it.

    I actually don’t need any other reason to not vote for Romney than the things I hear coming from his own mouth!

    Exactly what felony is committed by lying to the American people about his role after 1999?

    I think you are mistaken. If there was a law covering this, most politicians would be in jail.

      He made a sworn statement when he ran for office back then that he was no longer in charge of Bain. If he lied (and it certainly looks like he did) then it’s a felony. Sorry apologists!

    Well gosh..does this mean he made profits out of incinerating dead babies?

    You’re spot on with the third option. The corporate media is counting on profits from a close race and would love another Bush v. Gore crisis.

    Yep, a scandal on the Democratic side is going to have to be invented to keep the ratings up. Mitt getting booed by the NAACP and then this, makes Obama look too much like the better choice.

    The MORMON cult believes….Lies are O.K. if you are lying for GOD. See articles, from Mormons, google “WHAT MORMONS BELIEVE” this will really frighten you. They send 8 months with the Elders and you will get their teachings. They are even lying about their being Christians. I don’t know why their isn’t a group that lets this stuff out. I personally spent 8 months being gromed by the Mormom church to try and find out their true belief.
