    As it turns out not so much and under close observation turns a bit sleazy. Another signature accomplishment going down the drain.

    Just remember he was for lobbyists and pork barrel spending before he was against them) ( or was it the other way around? So hard to keep them straight)

    If he did all alone, Romney should be held liable for EVERYTHING Bain did, good and bad.

    I thought Flaylo was the official HuffPo representative to USMB?

    "Romney wasn't just the head of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee. Romney was also a registered lobbyist for the organization, Utah state records show."

    Oh noes!

    Nothing illegal mind you, just the typical Mitt Romney sleaze and double standards.

    He is a very difficult person to believe and as such becomes untrustworthy.

    Forgive me here, but records show that Mitt Romeny seems to be a pretty good businessman at the very least based on his own personal wealth. Anyone who knows anything about Olympics in general would know that investing in an Olympic games as a means to enrich oneself would be a very bad bet, so perhaps in this case the man was doing the right thing here for his nation. I for one am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt when it comes to the Olympics and applaud him for taking over a games that were a disaster and turned out to be very good. As for being a lobbyist, it makes perfect sense that someone would lobby for the Olympics if it were their job to promote them, as the man in charge would it not make sense to promote your endevour on every level you can to make it a success ? It does to me.
