Yea Romney "hid" his tax records...legally. And BHO "sealed" his
college transcripts...legally. Which is a worse offense? All these people crying
about money going off shore while wearing Nikes and using iPhones. Come on
people, your money is going off shore too.
It is understandable that people in Utah, particularly those over 50, as most
Republicans are, would prefer Mitt Romney, a fellow Mormon, or just about any
white candidate, to Barack Obama. But, times have changed. The average voter
is in her 30s. Black voters had the highest level of turnout in 2012. Single
and divorced women voted overwhelmingly for the Democratic ticket. The support
for Romney there mirrors the distance between Utah and the diverse, largely
metropolitan areas of the nation that supported President Obama. There is, as other commenters noted, irony in Mitt Romney criticizing the IRS
while continuing to hide his tax records.
@heidi ho, Fort Collins, CO - I dearly wish Mitt had won, but there seemed to be
ill winds brewing over this election. When Mitt came to Colorado the Saturday
before the election, the crowd was HUGE! The atmosphere was electric. I still
think it was weird that in some precincts in Ohio, there was no votes for
Romney. That is just too strange. Come on, there had to be at least one
person(s) that voted in that precinct. We are stuck with now, Benghazi, IRS
scandal, Obamacare, AP records scandal, ad nauseum. We campaigned very hard for
Mitt here in Colorado, even printing up our own Romney signs and distributing
them here in Colorado because the Mitt signs were running out. Rand Paul
2016!"I truly believe the election was stolen via fraud.
Precincts in Ohio had NO votes for Romney. The same thing happened in
Pennsylania. (NO votes? C'mon....) Machines were rigged. Results were
tampererd with. People were bribed (by Obama's endless promises of
cradle-to-grave help from the government.)Obama lied about Benghazi:
he did NOT call it a "terror" attack. The liberal,
'mainstream' media is complicit.Oh, America, America, how
the mighty have fallen.
To all the "Mitt lovers" out there... You got off easy when Mitt lost
the election. You can go on believing him to be perfect. Count your blessings!
Had he taken office, his 'reputation' would have gone
south in a hurry. Not just because of Mitt, but becuase that's what
happens to all our leaders these days. Either by their own hand or those around
them or the opposition... things 'go bad' once in office! When people
look for faults they find them! Sad, but true. Just look at how many of us
(you) treat our current President, and our most recent one (President Bush).
It's a thankless job!
Mitt Romney was just too good for the America of today. We as a nation have
fallen morally, economically, spiritually, at such a fast pace, that I think the
bad times are coming long before someone like a Mitt Romney will be called too
bail us out. Hopefully the once great USA will get a second chance. God
Well, "What Now?" has weighed the evidence, or lack thereof, and has
rested his case. Thank goodness there are more competent legal minds on the
case, who recognize an abundance of actual facts and evidence. And, finally the
media is curious about these matters.But, surely we should only
allow Obama himself and his mindless followers to consider the evidence. See no
evil, hear no evil, speak no evil against the great Obama. Case
A quote from the piece..."There's been a breach of
trust," Romney said.Which is exactly why more than 60,000,000
American Voters voted against Romney.TeaPublican commented...Re: IRS, Benghazi, AP records, Umbrellas etc., etc., etc.."...Yes, I know that we don’t yet have any evidence to support these
allegations, but who cares...I rest my case.
@Doug10 - you're so wrong on so many counts. I suspect you're
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell in disguise. I think Mitt will go down as
the most uniquely qualified person to lose to the least qualified candidate in
history. And it's true we're becoming a nation that values free stuff
more than a qualified president.What's a Pinocchio law? Obama
is far better at lying than Mitt, and has enjoyed a willing and supportive press
corps to get away with it. "I don't know" is now the official
administrative slogan, and plausible deniability is the cornerstone of his
presidency.Where are Obama's school records? He can't
release them, because they confirm just how incompetent and unqualified he
really is. We already know Mitt made a lot of money, and transferred a lot of
it offshore. The only reason you want his tax returns is to nit-pick at them to
hound him more? Also, Mitt's ideas were actually viable concepts to run a
nation and fix the economy. The proof of Obama's incompetent ideas is in
their utter failure. "Obamacare is a train wreck" is not a Republican
If Mitt Romney had stayed true to his convictions he might have won. However he
sold his integrity to the wacko right-wing fringe of the Republican party in
order to get the nomination. Despite his etch-a-sketch attempts to move back to
the middle, Americans saw him for what he became, a man with no core values who
would say and do anything to get a vote. He made John Kerry look like a pillar
Man oh man it seems that Mitt has gained a lot of integrity since he LOST the
election. Was he unable to lead his own party yet now in the pages of DN he can
lead the country better then the real president?The country had
never heard of the Pinocchio laws until Mitt came on the scene with his gray
areas and stories that were mostly fabricated. He could not produce his tax
returns because they percentage was less than a non multi-millionaire pays. He
would say whatever he thought would fly, with no regard for the truth. When
caught he would simply move to the next town, smile and shake hands.He proved unable to communicate with the working American, could not author
any of his own ideas and his platform of 75 pages was filled with how he would
undermine what Obama had already done adding his own name to many politicians
who come without real ideas just want to get the job.Which would you
rather have a Benghazi incident or 911?I love what Mitt stands
for...I think but it still changes on a daily basis.
Nothing against Mitt as a person, but could we please remember some of the
things he said? Nine years after our invasion of Iraq, Mitt said he still
thought it was a good idea. That tells me that he either valued the GOP
nomination over everything else, including the truth, or had not read a book in
nine years or so. He had nothing to say about torture by OUR people, nor did he
revisit his big idea to "double the size of GITMO". Signing statements?
Warrantless wiretaps? Wall Street firms too big to fail? His campaign silence
was deafening on anything other than tax cuts for you know who. The voters chose
correctly, and the howling taking place now will soon be permanently forgotten.
The person who illegally taped the 47% comments was a real scoundrel in my
opinion. He was a person who had sued various people and was obviously a
liberal. The media went out of its way to help Obama. It was unreal that they
refused to pursue Bengahzi when four Americans were killed but it would have
hurt Obama's re election especially his narrative. It worth closely looking
at this election because things have gotten much worse with Obama's
election and we need to understand why.
Obama has a very checkered political life. His modus operandi is destroy his
opponent before the vote. He did this by unsealing the divorce records of his
oppointment named Ryan and then facing only token opposition with Alan Keyes in
his senate race. He did the same thing to Mitt Romney, targeting him in swing
states with $500 million of attack ads mostly dishonest and allowing supporting
groups to aggessively attack him as a corporate raider. Obama has allowied
targeting of major campaign contributors like Frank Vandersloot for harrassment
plus 7 others. Why wouldn't we believe that all the scandals started and
will end with Obama? He has displayed the Chicago way his whole career.It's
like playing a softball game where the refs make calls that are clearly wrong
like safe at first when there out or calling a crucial strike a ball.Why should
we now trust the IRS, Homeland Security,the State Department or other government
People tend to be down on what they are not up on. Mitt Romney was and is up on
America. Where is barak? and michell? Where else could they get a Billion
It's simple. It's getting more rare, to have people in this world with
the ability to read people, and see people and situations for what they are.
Conservatives usually get an A+ in this category.
This is a great article! What a week of surprises for Obama, and us, -- the
media is actually reporting some suspicious happenings that occurred during the
last campaign. He thought he was invincible and anything he did (no matter
whether legal or not) wouldn't matter. It just reinforces my fear for this
country. Hutterite: Obama already thinks he can walk on water, and
the reason we conservatives wouldn't be thrilled if he "gave away"
jobs and made gas cheaper is because it would be at the expense of those of us
who work for what we get. Just like his infamous "Affordable Care Act"
which we are finding out isn't so affordable to those of us who shoulder
our own insurance coverage.
As we go further into the deep, dark, murky, swampy, Chicago-style politics,
Mitt Romney is looking better and better. What a shame. We (America)
SLMG - get real. Nobody said Tea Party members and conservatives were
exclusively audited. Of course people of all stripes get audited and harassed.
I guess you're ok if 75% of the audits occurred with conservative groups,
since the other 25% somehow prove an objective pursuit. It has already been
reported that the average conservative group seeking non-profit status took 27
months to get approved, and the average liberal group took only 9 months.I realize that to most liberals, that's a fair and balanced
approach by the IRS.
SLMG,There is a difference between being audited and having the IRS
change their records and come after you with lies. I'm sure I'm not
the only one that is being done to. The last time I talked to the IRS on the
phone before this crazy week was 3 years ago. They told me everything was up to
date and good, nothing pending. Now for the first time, I'm being told I
owe thousands for 2004 and also the returns I was talking to them about 3 years
ago have disappeared, not to mention the one we just sent in. Good thing we have
the records for those and also good thing they decided to drop the 2004 bogus
demand when I mentioned that I was a Romney blogger. To pretend that a liberal
being audited is the same as a dishonest attack on a perceived enemy is willful
SLMG. Since you are from "down under" you are understandably behind on
your news happenings here in the states. President Obama fired the director of
the IRS for admitting the IRS harassed conservative organizations and some
people who donated money to Mitt Romney for his campaign. Its all over the news
here. President Obama said this action by the political targeting of IRS is
unacceptable and promised to investigate and hold those responsible accountable.
But I believe like all his other promises to investigate other debacles, his
"investigations" have gone nowhere.
to MountanmanI mean Bermuda & The Caymans and you know that. Plus, I don't shop @ Walmart. So, the joke is on you.
@worf 1:57 p.m. May 18, 2013Mitt Romney is no Barack Obama. We made
the biggest mistake in American history. Some media brain washed folks just
don't get it, but soon the IRS will be Americas version of the KGB as our

on. Or do they? Medically, they'll make life making decisions
through the IRS.-----------------------That sure sounds
like the type of comment one could expect to hear from low-information voters.
WOW! That's not what this country needs.
MountanmanHayden, IDWhy did many people who contributed
to Mitt Romney's election get harassed by the IRS? Don't say that
didn't happen because the former head of the IRS admitted it and apologized
for it, that's why he was fired/resigned. Imaging the hyperventilation and
the outrage on the left if the IRS harassed Obama's campaign donors!
Hypocrisy at its finest!I don't know where you get the idea
that only conservatives are being "harassed" by the IRS, because I know
plenty of liberals and independents that have or are being audited. Any time
you are audited by the IRS you will feel harassed.It is time for the
teaparty members and conservatives to stop hyperventilating over being audited
by the IRS, you are not exclusive, it happens to all of us.
Hank Pym. Most of your money and mine goes offshore. Does the phrase "Made
in China" sound familiar?
@ Mountanman 5/18 12:01 p.m."Why did many people who contributed

like most of Mitt's $, it eventually makes it way "offshore?"

able to do it on their own after we're gone!I am an avid
former/ and anti-Mormon from a Biblical perspective. But as a Conservative
Independent I will vote and campaign hard for any solid Republican LDS every
time. I did not appreciate Mitt 100% of the time, but he out-shined almost
every candidate at the RNC debates, and blew away BHO in the "class, honesty
and intelligence" division. I just don't think Ryan connected with the
younger demographic. Rubio, Chaffetz or others may have. But despite the many
reasons for the Repubs choking, I hope we learned our lessons.If
Mitt reinvented himself, flip-flopped and did a Total Makeover, if would not

legitimize their lusts. I hope God gives them their wishes- right after I exit
What is going on in Washington is nothing more than pure politics and a gottcha
game. Every President has scandals on there watch, instead of working together
in a bypartsian way to investigate, the party that is not in power always turns
to the media to hype up the problems.If our congress was more interested
in governing for the people than making political points this country would be
much better off. These so called scandals happen to both the Democrate and
Republican administrations. It is time that the congress got back to the
peoples business and worked less on party politics and quit running there mouths
off to the media to score political points. Mitt Romney would have had his own
scandals had he been elected, no president is exempt. Our position as citizens
should be to support our sitting president regardless of who we voted for, we
should be trying to build our country up not tear it down remember the world is
To 3boyzmom: Amen.

Thornbirds,Regarding me cooling my conspiracies, I will let you in
on a little secret. Obama is also a believer in this conspiracy. He went public
with the IRS targeting conservatives. Perhaps you should become informed by
reading any number of articles exposing the IRS for coming after Romney bloggers
like me. I have to admit it was a surprise to find myself on their
hit list but no one with a brain could doubt the obviousness of the IRS charges
against me and I gave only a small part of the convoluted mess they have
suddenly made of my taxes. One extra example, not the worst but the silliest; we
received a thank you form a week ago for paying our 2012 taxes. Now their
computers say we never paid those taxes last month.
My dictionary defines trust as: reliance on the integrity, strength, ability,
surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.QUOTEThat's all true but aren't those cursed who trust in "the
integrity, strength, ability, surety etc" of man. Far better trust in the
Constitution of the United States, something not mentioned much by Mr Romney or
any but one of the other candidates. When asked a question
referencing the Constitution of the United States Mitt humble referred the
question to Mr Paul. Telling!
Why did many people who contributed to Mitt Romney's election get harassed

Tax breaks for the wealthy...yawn.You can't give tax breaks to
those who don't pay taxes. And the truth is, a large percentage of this
country pays 0% income tax. So, yeah, whenever there is a "tax break,"
it will go to wealthier individuals because they are the ones who actually pay
taxes! Perish the thought!
With that guy obama using the IRS to go after our Tea Party, and with obama and
that woman hillary covering up for Benghazi, we are in the midst of the worst
Washington scandals since Watergate. Yes, I know that we don’t yet have
any evidence to support these allegations, but who cares. We TeaPublicans are
going to throw everything against the wall and see what sticks! Yes, I know
that our Republican leaders lied about the Benghazi emails, but we didn’t
think the public would ever actually see them. It’s just a small mistake
on our part. And now there is another scandal brewing: Fox “and
Friend” Steve Doocy theorizes that the IRS is going to use ObamaCare to
deny hip replacements to known conservatives! OMG! I never thought obama and
his IRS would step that low. Thank God we TeaPublicans ARE taking back America
in 2014 and 2016. And we ARE going to take back that evil IRS Empire too!
I love the Democrat and other low information voter remarks about Romney's
wealth. He got it by following the rules set by Congress - DEMOCRAT congresses.
If you believe the low informaiton voters you would think it was ill-gotten.
Good man Mitt Romney. I wish we had more like him who were ready to make the
genuine sacrifices to achive high office. Instead, we get community organizers
pretending to be well-schooled, able leaders. Obama makes me wish we had Bill
While Romney tried to be careful with his comments they still showed either
vindictiveness or more likely what I suspect his genuine ignorance of world
affairs, domestic affairs, and seemed no more learned than the man on the street
that a newsperson always manages to pick out for a response to some story.
I am not a rich man but my federal tax rate compared to my gross earnings is
higher than Mitts. Mitt was good with that and would have continued tax breaks
for the wealthy. I do not care how you debate the issue. The current practice
of loopholes for the rich is wrong, wrong, wrong.
I actively campaigned for and voted for Obama. I got audited mercilessly this
year. I'm sure Mitt Romney was personally behind it . . .
" Romney is a rational man of intelligence, grace and integrity."Not all of the time was he a "...rational man of intelligence, grace
and integrity." His famous "47 percent" night in Florida may have
cost him the Presidency?
It amazes me that people's comments are so myopic. Romney wasn't
elected, and if he had he would have had to face the real problems of our
country. Just as most of these comments, it is easy and safe for him to take pot
shots from the cheap seats. The biggest factors that led to Romney's defeat
was a fractured and dysfunctional Republican party and the fact that most
Americans saw Romney inability to truly understand the struggle that most of the
99% have to go through. The Republican party is still dysfunctional and has
obstructionism as its sole function. Sad but true, and the extreme left of the
Democratic party has no better standing. Until the American people realize that
we have been relegated to the non-1% group, and retake control of the country on
rational and moral footing the country will continue the slide we are on.
I was a very active blogger for Romney and I was targeted by the IRS this week.
I called them yesterday and while switching from one rep to a different one for
specific info, somehow my 2009 tax return disappeared from their computer. First
guy said it was there, no problems...second person said they never received it.
That was the very least of the issues. A 2004 return disappeared and they
claimed they never got it and demanded $6,670. I said it was too late but they
said they filed for us in 2008. When I mentioned the strange timing in light of
the scandal and that I was an active campaigner for Romney, I was told I
didn't need to worry about the 2004 return but they still are causing
problems for later returns that there were no problems with until now.
@USAlover 9:08 a.m. May 18, 2013Mitt Romney > Barack Obama.And it's not even close...------------You
got that backward. It should read "Mitt Romney < Barack Obama.And it's not even close...Bad as Obama is, and there is
little he does that I like, Romney would have been infinitely worse. We dodged
a disaster when the voters of the United States sent Romney packing. Thank God
Hutterite says “President Obama, on the other hand, could walk on water
and give out jobs and cheap gasoline for all and he'd still be a hated
individual here.”I would seriously have to disagree with that
assessment. If he – or any other leader who failed to carry the majority
of Utah votes – was actually doing something to improve the US economy, he
would quickly sway opinion and favor in his direction. However, by
continuing to spend us into oblivion, apologizing to everyone else for being
Americans and demonstrating that he and his minions are above accountability, he
will continue to draw negative attention from far more than just Utah.
It’s not who he is that is hated but what he does. Just as the old adage
says, his actions speak louder than his words.
Wow Hutterite, what a judgemental comment! I would love to see Pres Obama
succeed in bringing honor and success to our country. What matters is what a
"leader" does when those scandals occur. Obama's response has show
a lack of leadership and been extremely hypocritical. How could he "not
know" so much about what is going on in this country and in his
administration. As a leader his is out of touch and uninformed, which is
formula for disaster and abuse. His job is to make sure he knows about what is
going on. My "UTAH" view is based on how he leads this country…so
far I have seen very few successful leadership decisions.
Would these scandals (IRS and AP) have still happened with Romney as President?
Possibly. Then again, the IRS scandal has been going on for a while. However,
here is the point:If Romney were president, and if these scandals
had happened, Romney would have done the right thing.I have to say
it as it is; Obama does not have a track record for doing the right thing.
I didn't see the interview but from what I read in the article, Mitt
didn't blast President Obama. . . he addressed the issues at hand. What a
classy guy. The only thing I don't like is when someone says I like any
Republican. I voted for Obama his first time and when he failed to what he
promised I voted for Mitt. I vote for who I feel will represent me the best. I
felt that Mitt is more honest than most politicians and he stayed on task to
answer Jay's questions when he could have taken advantage and nailed the
Obama administration, but didn't.
Mitt Romney > Barack Obama.And it's not even close...
The contrast between Romney and Obama is stunning. Romney is a rational man of
intelligence, grace and integrity. Thanks for your service to our country.
Romney did not lose the election, America did. Hutterite's
comment epitomizes the far left; abandonment of civility by not capitalizing
Romney's name, slavish worship of Mr. Obama by capitalizing the word
presidency and most of all, failing to engage in intelligent political dialog.
Margaret Thatcher's observation rings true that when there is no fact-based
counterargument, personal attacks are the only recourse .
Which ever political party, or what ever candidate is elected to the Whie House
will not make significant changes in government until congress itself is cleaned
up of the dirty self serving polititions and replace them with patriotic
statesman serving under the same laws as the nation at large.
My son who lives in Ohio reports to me that some areas around Cleveland, Ohio
had more than 100% voter turnout of those who voted, and those area were
significantly for Obama. How can you have an area that has more than 100%
voting? If you have everyone in a voting district voting then you have 100%
voting, not more than. Come on we need to clean up our whole country!! We need
to go back to a moral country that believes in God and where we are honest with
each other. I kind of agree with a earlier post, that we are getting what we
deserve (the law of the harvest) especially thinking that government is to take
care of every aspect of our lives. When are we (collectively as a country)
going to stand up and just take care of ourselves and not depend on government
to do everything for us!!!!????? We'd be much better off with a lot of
less government in our lives. One reason is that too many in our country
don't believe in the wonderful principle of work anymore.
Mitt gave a good interview with Leno, but he would have struggled as President.
The country's partisan politicians would have ripped on him as badly as the
right-wingers attack President Obama. Romney surrounded himself with a
dysfunctional party in his attempt to get elected. That same dysfunctional crew
would have followed him into the oval office and caused him greater problems
than the democrats. Recall how Nancy Pelosi and other radical Democrats have
often harmed President Obama! Extreme positions and militant partisanship
destroys the political process and harms the country. No person we
elect to the oval office is perfect. They can't fix their parties or the
country. But we can by turning off the extreme rhetoric and gravitating towards
more rational and centrist thinking. We are Americans, and one of our gifts is
the ability and vision to compromise.
@ Hutterite. Yes, all of these scandals would have arisen if Romney had been
elected. And, since they are all committed by Obama during Obama's tenure,
they would be throughly investigated without the roadblocks and interference the
current administration is throwing in the way.
Wow, this is rich. A guy who hides millions in tax shelters in the Cayman
Islands going after Obama about the IRS. Thanks for a good laugh this morning!
This is a very good article about the interview, thanks for writing it! It puts
these scandals in proper perspective in my view and the operative word used is
"TRUST". My dictionary defines trust as: reliance on the integrity,
strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence. For many
Americans our trust in our government has been shaken if not destroyed. If trust
means anything to anyone, we need honest answers about these abuses of power and
unaccountability from our government beginning at the White House no matter
which political party is in charge! Trust is a non-partisan principle.
America is having to deal with the "law of the harvest."
In truth, America is the dealing with the "law of the harvest." America
is reaping what she has sown.
Mitt Romney is a very capable and caring person. Have you missed him yet?
If Romney would have won the presidency, he would have had to don his chest
waders to tackle all the corruption in D.C. But, I have no doubt he was up to
As someone who voted for both Mr. Romney and Mr. McCain, I believe that in the
current climate that Mr. Romney is making a big mistake by trying to stay so
visible. Mark Shields of Shields and Brooks of The PBS NewsHour stated that Mr.
Romney is a symbol of the lack of empathy in the Republican Party. He is viewed
by the right as a symbol of hard work and success. However, the media is chewing
him up by painting that picture of him. Unfortunately, I believe that he should
be like MacArthur who was unjustly sacked by Truman and just "fade away"
and allow a new leader of conservatives to emerge.
I dearly wish Mitt had won, but there seemed to be ill winds brewing over this
election. When Mitt came to Colorado the Saturday before the election, the
crowd was HUGE! The atmosphere was electric. I still think it was weird that
in some precincts in Ohio, there was no votes for Romney. That is just too
strange. Come on, there had to be at least one person(s) that voted in that
precinct. We are stuck with now, Benghazi, IRS scandal, Obamacare, AP records
scandal, ad nauseum. We campaigned very hard for Mitt here in Colorado, even
printing up our own Romney signs and distributing them here in Colorado because
the Mitt signs were running out. Rand Paul 2016!
All articles on Jay Leno interviews. especially with a Utah favorite like Mitt
Romney need to have an accompanying video.
Finally - the truth shall prevail.
See, Chris B? I keep telling people you are really a good guy, after all!
Go Mitt Romney. Did we want an honorable man in office or not? I hope all the
people who voted for who we have now are happy with what we have. Obama is the
leader of our country and we are in great turmoil. I can't help but
believe that it comes from the top down.
What a wonderful man. We would have been lucky to call him President. He's
done more good for this country than the current president himself. Although
that's not saying much.You rock RomneySincerely,Catholic Chris B
It's hard to imagine any of these sorts of 'scandals' not arising
during a mitt presidency as they have during that of President Obama. After all,
the President isn't directing the intricate details of the tens of
thousands of everyday federal civil servants. The difference is how we deal with
them. If mitt were president he could do no wrong viewed from utah, that's
for sure. President Obama, on the other hand, could walk on water and give out
jobs and cheap gasoline for all and he'd still be a hated individual here.
