    His taxes have been scoured by the IRS, Mass DNC, DNC, Repub opponents and the Obama Admin and nothing has been found.

    LOL Probably because there is nothing to be found. If there were something to find they would have found it.

    To bad they didn't do the same with Barry. I think theres loads to be found on that guy.

    Just intuition.

    Bain came up quite a bit. Perry would trash Willard on it quite a bit, most notably with his "vulchers picking the carcass" speech.

    Newt also had many attack ads going against bain, even a website documentary (that he's since taken down) with interviews from people who's lives were ruined by Romney and Bain.

    Does anyone here opposed to Romney know why those jobs in Pa. were lost.. ?

    If you don't, when you bash Romney it makes you look stupid.

    Why don't you tell us so you don't look stupid. Do you even know the working mode of a company such as Bain? Look it up.......if you have a strong stomach.

    The right supports people that make money and work hard to build their own businesses. When Newt and Perry attacked Romney, they only hurt themselves as they were attacking from a leftist stand point...It seems the reason the media is using it now is because the left and the center hate people that are successful.:eusa_boohoo:

    Or maybe it is the lefts hatred if people that are in a business like Bain that do it for just money as not all businesses that came to bain to be rebuilt was successful. Somehow to them the fact that Romney loves making money makes him an evil man for the failures that led to the job losses. Doesn't make sense as they would of failed anyway, but that is the way they think.

    If Bain wasn't there these businesses would of failed. Think of that? The left has an agenda to destroy Romney and that doesn't add into their mindset.

    About him leaving in 1999 Well, he was somewhere else, right? Yes, he is not perfectly honest, but sometimes we tell half truths...I think it would be better if we focus on what these two men will do in policies to judge them?

    They were all over Bain earlier in the year around the time of the SC primary. Perry and Newt made it an issue.

    I dont know how you can say the media was for Romney when they were desperately searching for anyone else.
