    I'm quite sure than when one puts one's assets into a blind trust, there are certain guidelines that must be followed -- instructions that the client gives the administrator that must be followed. An example would be: "Don't invest in companies that profit from harmful products." That would preclude something like Phillip Morris. As an example. Another might be, "Don't, for God's SAKE!! invest in something that will embarrass me if it ever gets out." That's amusing, but I think you get my drift.

    Frankly, I even wonder if this is true. How did particular investments in a blind trust get out to the general public?

    That is an interesting question. I am kinda wondering it myself now.

    You assume Goldman Sachs did something wrong?

    There appear to be current allegations against the company they invested in and they're withdrawing the investment (though there isn't even a stated connection there - the article also suggests the investment was loosing money). There is no information at all about what checks GS make on the companies they invest in, whether better checks would have uncovered anything or even if the allegations regarding sex trafficking are actually true.

    At the moment, there is no proof that anybody did anything wrong (apart from the media spinning a negative story against the Romneys out of nothing).

    What's the opposite of news? Because that's what this is.

    Oh My God!

    Thank you Reuters News Agency for exposing this disgusting woman who might of been our next First Lady had I voted for her husband.

    Now that I know Mit Romney's wife is a greedy sex crazed capitalist pervert, I'm going to vote for the racist, marxist, America hater instead!

    Thank God for the left wing news agencies who keep us so well informed of the shenanigans those evil corrupt conservatives are forever up to.
