Romney will say it was the big investment banks- with some justification, I suppose. Private Equity firms are smaller and in some cases do make badly managed companies better. They're basically management consultants given completely free rein. The problem with them is that the sharp end is very sharp indeed, and they're allowed to much more secrecy than public companies, even when they've taken over public companies. The efficiency gains aren't always longterm either.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was some deal somewhere that was helped by a political favour, Romney being well-connected.

Chances are, he doesn't believe it either. But FUX news have so skewed what it means to be conservative now that to get elected as a Republican you have to more or less come right out and say you are prejudiced against anyone who isn't white, Christian, pro-life and rich, and you believe that burning/digging for oil makes no difference to anything, anywhere, ever.

It's got to cave in sooner or later - it's just getting too absurd to be believable to anyone other than nutcases.

But the implication of otherness – that Obama is African American, and is also not really of America – is ever present at Gingrich rallies.

"By the time ex-president Obama lands in Chicago," he said, imagining the first day of a Gingrich presidency, "we will have dismantled about 40% of his administration".

In response, some in the crowd started chanting "Kenya, Kenya" - saying that Obama should go back to where his father, and some say he, was born.

Others took up the chant.


Newt Gingrich really has the best informed supporters. I'm sure an invite to speak at en EDL rally must be in the post, after they've learned to write a coherent sentence that is.

This will help Gingrich. Well it would do if he was campaigning on issues, not just mentioning them to fuck up his opponent.

Quote:
Thursday afternoon, the LA Times reported that Romney’s tax returns listed 23 funds and partnerships that did not appear on Mitt Romney’s personal financial statements — the disclosure forms candidates are required by federal law to file with the Federal Elections Commission. Romney filed his disclosure forms in August 2011. The timing of this revelation couldn’t be worse. Hours before a GOP debate and days before the crucial Florida primary, Democrats now have new fodder for demanding additional tax return information from the Romney campaign.

Democrats are using the discrepancies to call on Romney to release all his tax returns from years in which he filed public financial disclosure statements. On a conference call with reporters, DNC spokeswoman Melanie Roussell stressed the importance of these newest revelations, saying they show what Mitt Romney was trying to hide on his regular disclosure forms. Roussell’s charge that the LA Times “found what it looks like he was trying to hide” is based on the fact that the of the 23 funds and partnerships left off the disclosure, 11 were overseas investments in funds in the Cayman Islands and Bermuda as well as the already-notorious Swiss bank account the Romney’s closed in 2010.

So Santorum has scored a shock victory in Colorado (which has a big Mormon population) and won big in Minnesota and Missouri. Interesting that Romney failed to win even a single county in the second two states and good news for Obama that the GOP will spend a bit longer knocking lumps out of each other.

So many different facial expressions in just one photo. Amazing.

The face of the lad on the right is quite amusing. Shame we can't see the face on the girl's doll.

Looks like the GOP is hurtling off the deep end at a rate of knots. How can Mitt Romney be so inept as to find himself trailing a liability like Santorum by 15%?

Riding a wave of momentum from his trio of victories on Tuesday Rick Santorum has opened up a wide lead in PPP's newest national poll. He's at 38% to 23% for Mitt Romney, 17% for Newt Gingrich, and 13% for Ron Paul.

The brakes may be on the Gingrich juggernaut. Not sure how I missed this.
