Why do I think that Mitt won't be answering many of these questions? (Read them all; it's quite a list).

I find it fascinating that apart from the original Globe story, the "liberal" MSM has pretty much relegated this issue to stores about "Obama Campaign Attacks Romney" as if it's just one of those he said/he said things. Kind of like voter suppression/voter fraud. No actual investigation, just stories about how the politics are played by representatives of the two parties. And then they wonder why more and more people read blogs instead of news.

# 31) If Obama owned slum apartments in Chicago that horribly mistreated poor people and didn’t provide them heat or running water, but Obama hired a real estate management firm to manage the building and collect rent, do you think it would be fair to criticize him for being a hypocritical slum lord who showed no compassion for poor people?

heh... from a reader comment

Mitt admits he owned 100% of Bain.

Question:
Mr. Romney, you have admitted that you owned 100% of the stock of Bain Capital, Inc. until at least 2002.

The stockholders of a corporation elect the Board of Directors of a corporation. You elected as the only Director of Bain Capital, Inc. … W. Mitt Romney.

The Board of Directors hires the CEO and the President. The CEO of Bain Capital, Inc. was … W. Mitt Romney and the President of Bain Capital, Inc. was … W. Mitt Romney.

Therefore, the stockholders (W. Mitt Romney) control the managers of the company (CEO W. Mitt Romney and President W. Mitt Romney).

So the question is: Do you expect us to believe that stockholder W. Mitt Romney (with millions of dollars of investment on the line) had no particular interest in or control over the activities of CEO W. Mitt Romney and President W. Mitt Romney?

Or maybe there is ANOTHER W. Mitt Romney that we have never met??

My favorite:

20. If yes to the previous question, do you understand that anyone who did not graduate in the top 5% of his class from Harvard Law School, as you did, may have a hard time understanding this?

He was hoping the whole thing would fly right over our heads. He's unaware of the concept that if you understand something really well, you can explain it to a ten year old. The whole financial industry seems to rely on keeping taxpayers in the dark.

Is it really that complicated that public figures will often place their holdings in trust with others?

Is it really that strange that someone would leave others in charge, and have no direct involvement with their holdings in order to make sure no one can accuse them of profiting from the public service?

Really?

It actually seems really common to me. I think it happens all the time.

A politician might have investments, and when takes a public service post, have others manage them in an arrangement where they are blind to what is being done, but they still own the investments.

In this case, it probably was not clear that this was going to be a long term as it turned out to be. So it took two years to make it happen on paper.

The issue now is: Was it legal?

Just because you don't want to understand it, doesn't make it a felony.

Frankly this list of questions is no better than the Birther nonsense.

The "he refuses to answer the questions" is so much like the "show his birth certificate" I can't stand it.

Maintaining the title of Biggest Moron at LGF. Way to go, Buck.
