View Full Version : Romney A Felon

07-12-2012, 02:52 PM
Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter suggested that Mitt Romney may be a criminal on a conference call with reporters this morning about a Boston Globe report that shows that Romney stayed at Bain Capital three years past when he said he'd left.

Cutter said that there were two ways to interpret the story. The first: Mitt Romney was "misrepresenting his position" at Bain to the Securities and Exchange Commission, "which is a felony."

Pot, kettle.

I'm sure she has plenty of experience recognizing a liar.

If Romney committed a felony then the Obama regime is aiding a felon by not prosecuting.

Rather than whining about it, Mitt should release his tax returns. If he's got nothing to hide, then he should welcome this splendid opportunity to put the issue to rest. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif

So among other things you don't know about, you've never heard of the statute of limitations, or prosecutorial discretion, or the binding DOJ guidelines on US Attorneys that forbid beginning prosecutions that could effect the election so close to election time?

Paleeze! If they indicted Romney, you'd be the first to howl at the moon that they were totalitarians trying to thwart the will of the people by denying them the opposition candidate from the other major party.

Wouldn't you? Admit it.

I know you have heard of the SOL, and are simply making what you think is a zinger point, which it isn't.

Evidently you do not know about the DOJ policy, even though it was among the reasons cited by the Bush US attorneys to not do bogus vote fraud prosecutions going into election season (and for which they were fired).

Tell us more bout the pet horse tax credit ... or Sarah Zplin saying he could see Russia from her house.

Wrong thread, but here you go:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">But as Mr. Colbert’s satire suggested, the scrutiny may not be entirely a blessing for Mr. Romney’s image as a man in touch with the concerns of average Americans. As millions tune in to the Olympics in prime time this summer, just before Mr. Romney will be reintroducing himself to the nation at the Republican convention, viewers are likely to see “up close and personal” segments on NBC about the Romneys and dressage, a sport of six-figure horses and $1,000 saddles. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>The Romneys declared a loss of $77,000 on their 2010 tax returns for the share in the care and feeding of Rafalca, which Mrs. Romney owns with Mr. Ebeling’s wife, Amy, and a family friend, Beth Meyers.</span> </div></div>

NY Times, June 16th or so last month. (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/17/us/politics/horse-co-owned-by-ann-romney-earns-a-spot-on-the-olympic-dressage-team.html?_r=2&smid=tw-nytimespolitics&seid=auto)

Apparently, this only ended up saving the Romneys $50 dollars in the only tax year for which we have their returns so far (2010), but allows the balance to be carried forward as a loss to be taken against future gains on the horse if it were sold or generates fees.

There's no accounting for how this hobby escapes the 'no deductions for hobbies' tax rules, although you can go some years (7?) without any (net) income (profit) from a hobby before it is confirmed as a hobby and not a business pursuit.

Are they also deducting depreciation from the purchase price of the horse, over its expected working life span? True, that again would result in loss carry forwards, credits against gains (that may or may not occur in the future).

The administration makes itself less relevant by the day.

Every day that clicks by the outlook for the economy worsens and they get more desperate.
