GD: "We don't hate successful people, but we hate successful people becoming so at the expense of others." I thought GD was referring to the way young Mr. Obama became successful at the expense of others - the students that should have received the grants he got for being a "foreign student", the taxpayers whose money he took, the credit he took for other people's work, the blame he pushed for his own failures, etc.

Philster, I didn't tear down the young Romney. I may have questioned his credibility. That comes with the territory in politics. Evidently, you believe the young Romney is above question. As far as Mitt, it's too bad he couldn't play to part of a moderate Republcian that he is. Since he has to now play the part of a TEA Party knuckle dragger opposed to most of the things Romney supported as the gov of Mass, his credibility has fell by the wayside. The same thing happened to McCain in 2008. Neither could pick a common-sense moderate, because the Republican base would stay home and clean their guns instead of being campaign foot soldiers. So they picked a homecoming queen and king from the right-wing university of Ayn Random where the school colors are black and white. Meanwhile, I am sure you are tearing down Obama every chance you get...even though he is a successful family man who is very generous in his charitiable giving.

Carbon BF: Obviously fiction writing is one of you storng points. On Obama getting grants by posing as a foreign student: "The claim that Obama got “foreign student aid” is untrue. That wild falsehood began as an absurd April Fools’ Day hoax in 2009, which we quickly exposed." http://www.factcheck.org/2012/07/obamas-sealed-records/ Obama plagarism: http://www.plagiarismtoday.com/2008/02/20/the-obama-plagiarism-scandal/ "The accusation against Obama is that he, with permission from the original author, took ideas from a speech and presented them as his own. Much of the material involved was quoted from previous speeches that are already well-known. Should Obama have given credit to his friend? Yes. Does it reflect on his moral character that he didn’t? It is hard to say. It is easy when giving a speech to omit sections. The question is whether it was an honest mistake or an attempt to present the words as something they weren’t. Given that Obama, by all accounts, had permission to use the verbiage before going up, the evidence leans to the “honest mistake” side..." I guess old wives tales eventually turn into Carbon Bigfuut Patch post comments. Perhaps you can provide us with a recipe for TEA Party baloney rehash?

Mainstreet said he doesn't think George Romney ran for President. Goodness sakes lad, Google "george romeny president" and you will learn that he ran in 1968 in the primaries. He is the one who started releasing his tax returns. Do you pay any attention to the media and this presidential campaign? They mention this frequently.

Since George never made the Nov ballot in my mind he wasn't a presidential candidate Though only eleven in 68 I remember the major candidates being Nixon, Humphrey, and Wallace. Also there was a lot of "birther" controversy with Romney's participation in the primaries.
