    Anything that had a legal or contractual requirement to be confidential … they were just destroyed," Bullock said.

    Asked about Romney's personal papers, such as correspondence, emails, and appointment calendars, Bullock said he did not think it was likely they were saved.

    “Romney and the Salt Lake Organizing Committee had no legal obligation to preserve their records or make them public, even though the state paid $59 million, and the federal government spent $342 million on the Games and contributed roughly $1 billion more in indirect aid for transportation projects and other capital improvements in the Salt Lake region.

    For Republicans, it's "every man for himself". Get as much as you can no matter who you screw over or how you get it.

    When I was a kid, if you "invested" a billion and got back a measly hundred million, it wasn't a wild success, it was a "bankruptcy".

    How many of Mitt's "Salt Lake Friends" own all those taxpayer funded venues? And this is the guy Republicans swear will turn around the economy? Really?

    I just posted video of Mitt in his own words. Touchy, touchy.

    If the government gave me a billion dollars, there are LOTS of things I could "fix". But how much of that was me and how much the billion dollars in taxpayer money? Oops.

    Odd. Obama's campaign contributors, like, I don't know, Solyndra, got lots of government money and couldnt fix a damn thing other than their bank accounts long enough to cash out and donate more money to Obama.

    Rdean maybe you can tell me. Why do liberals post stupid threads on stuff noone cares about, yet get their asses kicked in them all the time? Are you a masochist?
