    Why put that in quotes when it's obviously some silliness you fabricated?

    You were probably inspired by a real incident however, Nancy Pelosi, leader of the most corrupt group of politicians in recent memory.

    Voters say they’re worse off after four years of Obama, so why is Romney struggling?
    Because the US is controlled by the Feds. They control the media and election machine. They select the politicians to control the government. That's why even Clinton did a good job in his last term, Bush won the election. What the Feds needed was not a good economy, they need war and the Patriot Act. Several month after his election, 911 happened which satisfied what the Feds needed.

    This time, Obama will give the Feds something Romney can't give. So you saw Romney is under the fire of media despite the life of Americans is worse off after four years reign of Obama.

    You couldn't be more wrong. They buy things that already exists. They are a far cry from Henry Ford or Steve Jobs who actually created products that created industries.

    They were on their way to non existence and Bain Capital saved them.

    Isn't that a good thing?

    Romney also saved the Winter Olympics in Utah, also a good thing.

    Just who are these magical "Feds". Do they fly around? I think I saw one the other day, it was purple with pink polka dots.

    Romney did a fine job running the Olympics but the "savng" part is a Romney myth. What is true is that if he had failed in Utah he would have been the only one to do so.

    You've heard this voice before. It is the voice of a comically self-satisfied man basking in the glory of achieving something very few mortals would be capable of -- in this case, running a successful Olympic Games. Indeed, Romney would have you believe that he didn't just make the Salt Lake City games a success -- he saved the Olympics themselves. He grabbed ahold of an Olympic torch extinguished by international scandal and relit the flame. That is the unembarrassed message of Romney's 2004 book "Turnaround: Crisis, Leadership, and the Olympic Games." Romney's Olympic triumph is what made the difference (at least in Romney's mind) between his failed 1994 Senate campaign and his successful 2002 gubernatorial bid, which put him on the path to the White House. It is, today, a significant part of Romney's argument for electing him president.
    It's also, as I've written before ("No Medal For You,") a pretty weak case. Romney did a perfectly fine job running the Olympics, but so have lots of other people. When reporting my earlier column I asked Lisa Delpy Neirotti, who teaches sport management at George Washington University, whether she could name a single U.S.-based Winter or Summer Olympics -- going back three decades -- that wasn't managed well. She could not. But Romney is deeply invested in the idea that it takes superhuman skills to save an Olympic Games from the disaster and international humiliation to which it naturally inclines. The idea that it can be done reasonably well even by a past-its-prime power like Britain is too much for Romney to bear. And I'm afraid he let it show at a very inopportune moment.

    I have no idea who you mean by they. However, my point was they don't create anything. Entrepeneurs create careers and industries. Equity companies like Bain buy things created by others shuffle some numbers around to bump up the sale price or sell off the assets.

    I'm not much of a sports fan so I can't say how well they went even if they went fantastic BFD. Moreover, weren't those olympics the ones that had some issues with kickbacks\bribery.

    But of course he didn't fail in Utah and turned everything right around into a tremendous success. Americans should be hoping he can do the same thing for his country.


    Oh, Come on!!

    Romney saved the Olympics and you're seeking out anything negative about the man from disgruntled partisans. Just deal with the facts.
