"He Didn't Do Anything Illegal"

That seems to be the basic Republican line about Mitt Romney's taxes.

Hey, people like Mitt spent years and tons of money electing a government that saw to it that what Romney has done went from being illegal to being legal.  They bought and paid for that legality.  And that's all that matters, right?

So, elect Mitt and you will see a lot more things that used to be illegal become legal.  Oh, not things that you might take advantage of.  These newly legal actions will be like Mitt's taxes- things that really rich people will find useful- things like destroying the banking system for your own financial benefit, or killing off tens of thousands of jobs in order to suck companies dry.  Oh wait, that's already legal.  It's a free country, you know. 

As for you, a few more years and the only thing that will be legal for you is buying guns.  If you voted Republican, that is.  For Democrats, the only legal thing will be starving to death.

Neither did the prisoners in Guantanamo.

Since the people screaming he didn't do anything illegal are all compulsive liars, I'd assume it means he did. After all, if he feels hiding all his tax returns and financial dealings does him less harm than revealing them... well, there must be something truly nasty there.

Anonymous, I agree with you one hundred percent on this one. Our Constitution guarantees everyone- not just Americans- a right to a fair and speedy trial. Bush and Cheney saw to it that the prisoners in Guantanamo were denied that right, and consequently, all of them should have been released long ago.

Obama was a fool not to have declared at the beginning of his Presidency that the Bush aggression against Iraq was a monstrous war crime in its own right, and also destroyed any chance of seeing a successful outcome in Afghanistan either. He should have had the honesty to tell the American people that Bush and Cheney had precipitated one of the greatest military blunders in the history of the world in Iraq, and that he would not wait one day to stop our useless bleeding of men and money over there. That should have included freeing the prisoners in Guantanamo, with the clear understanding that, if they later engaged in action against us, it was totally the fault of Bush and Cheney for violating the Constitution by detaining and torturing them, making it Constitutionally unacceptable to try them.

Now Obama just upped the ante by killing people with drones.
I know the media doesn't like to report the number of casualties anymore,of course only if it makes Obama look good.

I doubt the media is trying to make Obama look good. I think they might be like the voters recently polled about actual Romney policy positions who refused to believe those positions were real.

Waaah Waaah Waaah The News Media was never supposed to talk about the chicken hawk, punk ass bitch, vulture capitalist Mitt Romney! How dare anyone mention that Romney made Billions by destroying American Companies and shipping American jobs overseas.

It's not fair! The MSM must debate Obama is a Commie and a Kenyan!

Waaah Waaah Waaah!
