    I'd have no problem admitting it if it was fact. I am LDS and have not heard anything like that. You stated you attended some meetings back in 1982 and so now you know that it is widespread. OK, believe what you want.

    Did you even pay attention during the last election. It wasn't just in 1982......it was widely reported even as recently as 2012

    Yes, Obama's Hope and Change has certainly restored America's greatness in the world and it seems clear that since he was first elected President the rise of the oceans have begun to slow, except for Sandy of course, and our planet has begun to heal.

    Mitt Romney was only an incredibly successful businessman who created thousands of jobs while Barrack was an ocean slower and a planet healer. I can understand why he received your support.

    JFK was subject to much of this same stuff when he was the first Catholic who ran for President. I wasn't surprised it happened to Romney and no doubt the first Jew will suffer much the same suspicions and criticisms.

    Romney cost thousands their jobs and bankrupted a dozen companies. Spit out the Kool Aids before it kills ya.

    2012 GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney, who has a large lead in the polls heading into the New Hampshire primary tomorrow, has been taking heat from both Democrats and his Republican challengers for his time at Bain Capital, the private equity firm that he headed. Bain’s modus operandi was to invest in companies, leverage them up with debt, and then sell them off for scrap, allowing Bain’s investors to walk away with huge profits while the companies in which Bain invested wound up in bankruptcy, laying off workers and reneging on benefits.

    Last week, Reuters profiled one company, Worldwide Grinding Systems, that went belly up after Bain invested in it. The company not only lost 750 jobs, but the federal government had to come in to bail out its pension fund, while Bain walked away with millions in profits.

    Is that a rhetorical question?

    What was it in the earlier tax returns that you expected to see? Did you forensically analyze the ones he did release?

    Since he failed to release them we will never know. But, most people--at least those who are not RW hacks--agree that Romney refused to release returns from before 2010 for one of two or three reasons:

    1. The returns would prove he lied about not being active in Baine Capital
    2. The returns if scrutinized would show illegalities, primarily tax evasion and perhaps even fraud
    3. The returns would expose how little, if any, tax Romney actually paid.

    Funny thing though...with Romney, almost all of the negativity towards his religion came from the extreme right. There was no way that evangelicals were going to back a Mormon for President. Having grown up in Utah, I saw this constantly. The most anti-Mormon negativity didn't come from "liberals"...it came from the evangelical religious groups. They were always out in full force during every Mormon conference handing out anti-Mormon literature.

    Likely activity involving Bain. If he didn't have something to hide, he would have released them. The fact that he was so shady with them clearly indicates he had a lot to hide.

    You have seriously got to be joking. Do you even know how many US jobs that Romney and his corporations outsourced? Sure....Romeny created thousands of below minimum wage jobs in other countries.
