    Poor guy has got to be wondering by now what he could possibly do to win favor. (hint: with the media, absolutely nothing as long as you're threatening Barry's job)

    It reminds me somewhat of when Dole ran. He was completely vilified by the media, savaged as being insane, senile, evil, worse than Hitler, etc. etc., day after day until the election was over. Suddenly when he was no longer a threat he became a kind, generous, even a good humored man in the press.
    He lent the government money, interest free...as we all do. They take $160B for an average of 8 months and pay it back with no interest...but it is the guy claiming approved tax deductions that is cheating the middle class.

        The media are in full out assault mode and will be until election day and their candidate is safely reelected. I listen to NPR sometimes driving to and from work, but have sworn off it until after election day, as it's basically a day long campaign commercial for Obama.

          Yesterday, President Obama said, "You can't change Washington from the inside."

          Today, his campaign announced that, if re-elected, Obama will move the White House to Chicago and change Washington from there.

            A guy lives by the law of the land as far as taxes are concerned yet somehow he is a scumabg because he didn't pay enough. another guy does the same thing yet he is a hero. Be nice if the pinkos were consistent

              Your harping on the "legality" of what he does is hilarious given his unwillingness to release the tax returns from 2009, when the 1% paid convinced Congress to pass an amnesty on Swiss bank accounts to avoid being charged with felony tax evasion.

              He with the gold, makes the rules, and I'm glad you're so proud of the man with the gold not breaking the rules he helped make.

                Maybe I've forgotten, but I don't recall much animosity toward the Kennedys and their wealth. And certainly no demands to traipse through their tax records looking for something to exploit that would inflame low information voters. And unlike the Kennedys, Mitt made his own money, after donating his considerable inheritance to BYU. D*mn him.

                  OMG
                  Some law got passed in 09 to protect Mitt? Mitt was in Congress in 09?

                    Let's see, the audio tape showing "unbiased" reporters getting their narrative straight before the Romney press conference on the collapse of His Failureness' foreign policy, included one babe from NPR right? Their collective narrative was "the timing is wrong to criticize His Oneness' foreign policy," and by some odd co-incidence, the first six questions asked, all attempted to make that point one way or another. However, by the 7th question, somebody got around to asking what Romney would have done differently. Meanwhile, His Oneness took no questions. Why should he, when his media praetorian guard is out there protecting him like the Christ child?

I mean, I go to work every day and earn my salary. Romney hasn't had a full time job since 2006....
                        Just a WAG, but I'd imagine the reason they don't return your calls is they really don't want depositors bringing in rolls of quarters.

                          Which was still 13%. It's not about begrudging his successes (more power to him) but that rate sticks a craw in many and for good reason. Why is that any criticism of that no matter how logical is so routinely rebutted with pure nonsense?

                          [edit] From Rolling Stone: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics...omney-20120829

                          "But what most voters don't know is the way Mitt Romney actually made his fortune: by borrowing vast sums of money that other people were forced to pay back. This is the plain, stark reality that has somehow eluded America's top political journalists for two consecutive presidential campaigns: Mitt Romney is one of the greatest and most irresponsible debt creators of all time."

                              To me, nothing is funnier than this belief the media has a liberal slant. The Republicans have refused to work with Obama for four years. They filibustered almost everything for the first two, convinced voters that the Democrats weren't getting it done, that Obama was to blame, that THEIR individual mandate idea was socialist, got the House back, and then sat on their hands for two years. There is a minuscule amount in the media about this absurdity. It's Obama's fault...because he didn't have enough votes to over-ride their obstinance. How dare he not have 60 percent to over-ride things.

                              The media, on a whole, isn't liberal. MSNBC is unabashedly liberal.

                              I swear, for the party of the elite, conservatives find a way to play the victim card fairly regularly. The media isn't out to get you. How dare the liberal media ask a candidate what books she reads, as he tries to humanize her by helping her connect with people who read books!
