    I can understand why Romney does not talk about taking 1.3 billion of tax payers dollars for the Salt Lake Olympics. I wonder what else we will find out about his past that he has kept quiet about?

    Don't see a problem, for Romney, on this one.

    I'm with you, Curtis.

    It looks like Crabby is just posting everything that he can find at Huffington that has Romney in the title on the assumption that it must be really bad for Romney. :laugh:

    Perhaps he'll actually engage in one of his own threads, and tell us what the problem is.....

    Nope. I also doubt Crabby sees it.

    He and/or his campaign folk like to talk about saving the Olympics and making it sound as if he had no help. But 1.3 billion tax dollars, yours, mine and everyone's tax dollars he does not want mentioned. So Bro C, in your considered opinion why does he want that kept quiet?

    Also did you know the US uniforms for those Olympics were made in Burma.

    But Romney didn't bring financial success to the Olympics through private enterprise, but through help from the Federal Government and your money. But he would much rather want you to believe it was through his great management skills. It wasn't. It was through his political contacts and, again, your money.

    Crabby is channeling Obama here. :laugh:

    Crabby didn't write that post by himself - his second grade teacher taught him to spell - and IBM built the computer that he uses - and Edison made the electricity in his house possible... :laugh:

    If no management skills were necessary why was the Olympics in such dire straits before Romney showed on the scene?

    OK, first of all, I looked up the $1.3 billion, and the wealthy 1%-er socialite's blog you link to can only support it with an unsourced interview on MessNBC. You obviously just were too lazy to look it up.

    So before I tear into it, let's get proof that Romney was given $1.3 billion in federal money.

    From Factcheck.org.....

    In a web video, the Democratic National Committee slams Romney for heading up “the most expensive games in U.S. history” that “got more taxpayer dollars than any previous Olympics.” The DNC put the cost to federal taxpayers at $1.3 billion. Well, yes and no. Most of that figure was for highways, transit systems and other capital improvements that federal and state officials assert eventually would have flowed to Salt Lake City regardless of the games, but was accelerated to accommodate them. The DNC’s figures include both direct and indirect costs of the Salt Lake City Games, but compare that with only the direct costs of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.


    No wonder you didn't want to give me a good source.

    The fact that Romney breathes is a problem for Crabtownboy! If he would just find something to reference besides Huffington Post. Makes one wonder if he is pimping for them!

    That is just chump change [whatever that means] Obama shafted the taxpayer to the tune of 800+ billion for "shovel ready jobs" except he later admitted there were no s"shovel ready jobs' so where is the money Crabtownboy. Did you get any?
