    Re: Mitt Romney’s Son: Obama Should Release Birth Certificate, Grades

    Fun fact...I do not have a birth certificate...never have had. I have a certificate of live birth issued from the great state of California (standard issue for children born on military bases in the 60s). I joined the military, got married, have had multiple drivers licenses and concealed carry licenses, went to multiple colleges...all using the same certificate. BTW...notice the title...Certificate of Live Birth...precisely the same as that presented by Obama recently. Unfortunately, Homeland security NOW says that in order for the DMV to authorize a license renewal (yes...they have already given me one in the past and accepted my verification) I must show an 'actual' birth certificate (In other words...the same legal document presented by Obama to show his birthplace may qualify him to be president, but it wont qualify me to renew a drivers license). It gets better...in order for me to get a birth certificate from the great state of California I have to go to my DMV, have them notorize an application using my OLD drivers license and certificate of live birth (which they WILL accept for notary purposes but will NOT accept for issuance of a drivers license), send it to California, have them send me a 'real' birth certificate, then go back to my DMV with my NEW birthcertificate, at which point they will issue me said new ID.

    And if I checked yes in box 20, I could declare myself indigent with no address or an undocumented alien, and be issued a legal drivers license.

    In a perfect world we could have families like the Romneys and never having to see their son wear the uniform.
    You still haven't squared up how you can take issue with neither Romney nor any of his 5 kids serving, while simultaneously saying not everybody needs to or can serve. Given the fact that your last response wasn't actually a response to what I said, I won't hold my breath.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Could you clarify for us what in Mitt Romeny's personal history you were referring to when you said he has done more for his country than most people?
    He has created wealth for some, has provided jobs for others, and did a bang up job running the Olympic Games

    That did a lot for the nation-far more than most

    The fact that the Romneys don't serve in the military confirms the long tradition of the rich elite keeping their young from harms way while other young men are deemed expendable.
    This goes back to the days of the college deferments which allowed the upper class an avenue to avoid the draft. It was felt that a young man working construction or farming was far more expendable than the young man studying sociology in college.
    Oh but am certain the apologists will want to point out that the Romneys have served their country too. And am certain the Romneys have sacrificed much as the parents of Vietnam Veterans.

    Were the Nachos tasty at the Olympics?

    Personally I think 7-11 does a better job on the Nachos.

    In business...

    Romney's "jobs record" is a sham
    Mitt Romney is attempting to establish himself as the Republican presidential candidate with the most credibility on job creation, but the former Massachusetts governor may have trouble defending his record. During Romney's tenure as governor, Massachusetts' job growth was bested by every state in the nation except three, including Hurricane Katrina-devastated Louisiana. As CEO of Bain Capital, Romney profited as five of the companies under his firm's direction went bankrupt, and thousands of workers lost their jobs. One particularly brutal round of firings came back to haunt Romney during his failed 1994 Senate campaign, when laid-off workers protested his candidacy.

    2002 Winter Olympics

    Romney and Olympics
    No one disputes that, in the end, the 2002 Winter Games were a brilliant success. But some argue that Utah's deep tradition of volunteerism, widespread support for the Olympic bid in the state and in the Mormon Church, and the global outpouring of goodwill -- and cash -- that followed the tragedy of the 9/11 terror attacks deserve much of the credit.

    "Any well trained chimpanzee could have come in and had a successful Olympics," said Doug Foxley, a Salt Lake City lobbyist and former adviser to Romney's presidential rival Jon Huntsman, Jr.

    Ken Bullock and other critics are driven to distraction by Romney's claim that he saved the games. But at the time he took little credit for himself, letting others cast him as the savior.

    Nevertheless, Romney took a very public role in shaping the narrative of games -- from scandal to success. When Romney was brought in, he was pushed in front of the cameras, and he remained there. Bullock in particular felt that Romney controlled the story. "No one could have a difference of opinion," Bullock said.

    What state is that? I moved to SoCal from Ohio, b/c never required, have never taken a "road test", usually renew my license by mail or online. My b/c was lost decades ago.

    Romney has displayed a great talent for a type of business that has come to symbolize much of the last thirty years. He has done very well for himself. If that amounts to serving his nation because he created wealth and some jobs, then the American people will have to pass judgment upon that claim.

    As to the Olympic Games, he seems to have done a fine job in every respect. I not that he even contributed at least a million dollars to the games as well as turning down his on million dollar salary. By every measurement, the Games were a major success.
