    Mittens is on his way over to London ENGLAND to attend a fund raiser which up until two weeks ago was co-chaired by a certain BOB DIAMOND who up until two weeks ago was the CEO of Barclays of London now being investigated for fraud and illegaly gaming the international banking system.

    This is treason of the highest order. One: going to foreign soil to take money to influence a presidential election in the U S A. Two: attending said fund raiser co-chaired by a criminal financier that manipulated banks contributing heavily to the worlds recent economic melt down.

    Mitt Romney obviously has no shame. Neither does anyone that would support him.

    "
    LONDON—As Barclays BARC.LN -1.28%PLC negotiated a settlement with U.S. and British authorities over its attempts to manipulate interest rates, the bank tried to keep regulators from publicly naming two top executives touched by the scandal, said people involved in the talks.

    Senior Barclays's officials reckoned that obscuring the involvement of Chief Executive Robert Diamond and Chief Operating Officer Jerry del Missier would shield the 322-year-old British bank and its executive suite from political fallout, these people said. The mission initially succeeded: The settlement announced June 27 referred to the men only as unnamed members of Barclays's "senior management."

    Robert Diamond, former chief executive officer of Barclays.
    ..Within days, however, the executives' involvement became clear and it fueled a political firestorm. Less than a week after the settlement was announced—acknowledging the bank sought to manipulate the London interbank offered rate, known as Libor—Messrs. Diamond and del Missier resigned, along with Chairman Marcus Agius, setting adrift one of the world's biggest banks."

    London Fund-Raisers Put Romney in a Scandal’s GlareBy MICHAEL BARBARO and NICHOLAS CONFESSORE
    Published: July 20, 2012

    They were envisioned as low-key, across-the-pond fund-raisers that would allow Mitt Romney to extract campaign cash from expatriates in London by night as he played statesman by day.

    .But the two receptions that Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, will hold for donors next week during a swing through Europe are turning into an ill-timed public relations headache for him.

    You should probably kill yourself now and not wait until Romney election and the endless busy signals you'll get from calling Suicide Prevention

    Also Google "Geithner LIBOR Scandal"

    I prefer to go with the definition that is actually applicable in the US. Is it hard being as dumb as dirt?

    For the record, being investigated has, traditionally, not been proof of guilt. Bob Diamond has been found guilty of nothing.... trial by media does not count in this country. Unless the law has changed under the ObamaNation and I hadn't heard.

    Idiot.

    Apparantly HE thinks he did something wrong or he wouldn't have resigned.

    The allegation is that Barclays and several other banks colluded to game the interest rate system to the advantage of some insiders needing liquidity in "casino banking and investing". Gaming the system is right up Mitten's alley. I can see why he might find it useful to owe something to people who are better at rigging the economic field in thier favor.

    What I take exceptional exception to isn't the appearance of inpriority. Everything about how Romney made his money smells bad.

    What I REALLY find disgusting is his open flaunting of accepting money for his campaign in a foreign country. We all know that contributors to campaigns expect some favor for thier money. We have been putting up with it as a country because no one has been caught ...I repeat CAUGHT doing a favor that was too heinous... I mean like the Cheney publicly announced yet still "secret" energy meetings that drew up Iraq into bite sized chunks during the planning of a war that had not been declared yet ... the justification conveniently came with 9/11...and some bogus intell about WMDs.

    That was disgusting enough but the truth of the matter is that as always has been the case you can still steal a lot more money with a briefcase than a gun.

    I shudder to contemplate what Mittens is willing to trade away for foreign banking contributions to his run at Obama's job.

    How did we get to a place where accepting foriegn influence in a presidential election was acceptable?

    You people can dress up this pig with the finest foreign makeup all you want. I call it treason.

    As for you Sandi. You are a drunken sow. Calling me "idiot" means nothing. If you do not agree with my OP then by all means take shots backed up with facts all you want. BUT this is not a thread for your drunken rambling about how smart you are and how stupid everyone else is. These are serious allegations I am asserting. Deal with the facts or stuff something in your pie hole and bugger off.
