Romney negotiated a $10 million federal bailout for his company, but has called for foreclosures to be allowed to “hit bottom” and letting Detroit go bankrupt.
Romney isn’t revealing what he did while he held the public’s trust, both as head of the Olympics and as Governor of Massachusetts. With each passing week, Romney creates more questions about what he has done in the past and what he will do in the White House.
Sheldon Adelson, the largest foreign investor in China, has invested tens of millions of dollars in influencing the 2012 election and has vowed to spend $100 million to put his thumb on the scale for Mitt Romney in November.

It turns out Romney either lied to the American public or filed an incomplete and incompetent IRS return in 2010. W. Mitt Romney is hiding the document that reveals more information about the money he is hiding in financial institutions favored by despots, terrorists, drug dealers, money launderers and tax cheats.

W. Mitt Romney’s campaign is struggling to get some simple facts straight. When did he leave Bain? Why is his signature on new business documents in 2002 if he “retroactively retired” in 1999? Why is the sworn testimony he provided at his 2002 ballot access hearing in Massachusetts in conflict with his financial disclosure documents?
The demand for W. Mitt Romney to release his tax returns has become bipartisan. Conservative elected officials and pundits know that Romney is taking on so much water over his secrecy and questions of his honesty and that he has no other choice.
When it comes to the candidates’ pasts, Obama – not Romney – should be on the defensive. Obviously, questions about Obama have been unanswered for a longer period of time than Romney’s.
