Don't buy into the cheap crap about Mitt cheating with the CEO of Staple's wife

This is going to be all about Mitt testifying as to the value of Staples stock.

This is going to be about Mitt saying Staples wasn't worth shit under oath in a divorce proceeding so his buddy didn't have to give as much money to his future ex-wife while Mitt told investors the opposite.

This is going to be about the filings about Staples value being accurate while the sworn testimony was fucking bogus as shit and ended up cheating a woman out of her due in a divorce.

And that, my friends, will say everything about Mitt's character, especially where women are concerned.

47. Honestly....

I am perplexed. I won't say hate or call him stupid but there is something seriously wrong with him or whoever is guiding his campaign. After months of being called out on changing his mind, etch-a-sketch, etc....how can he go on the last debate with a complete reversal of views????

So same thing...he goes on stand and says something that isn't true....because it serves its purpose in the moment. I've often wondered...what is it like to never in your life, for one moment worry about money...or anything. I guess THIS is what happens...you don't have a true grasp of reality.

14. That will be the immediate reaction

 

Perjury will be a definite possible charge.

It also explains why Maureen wants this testimony to see light of day. If he testified uner oath to one thing while the SEC filings said the opposite, the fucker committed perjery quid pro quo.

And it opens a huge can of worms that Romney will have to address long afte he loses this campaign.

7. Your analysis fits the known facts much better than the theory of an affair.

IE The husband being a big Romney supporter. Romney being a never nude. Everyone having a gag order that they haven't violated yet. Pretty sure an affair would have leaked much sooner.

17. Highly doubtful it's an affair, as the friend spoke at Romneys GOP convention this year.

Almost certainly as has been previously suggested, that Romney talked don the value of hubbie's stock value, or he moved some hares around etc.

He's a douche, but I truly don't think this is a smoking gun.

Seems Mitt and Tom have quite a history. I read somewhere that Mitt was named as a third party. Is that true? So, since Maureen is all for it being made public and Tom's is fighting, I hope it's an affair between Mitt and Tom. Now, that would be a bombshell.

It will reflect highly on his character if anyone cares.. there's still a couple of undecided voters - it might help - but it might generate a sympathy vote if Allred goes ballistic.

I have complete faith in Gloria Allred as one of the most competent attorneys in the United States when it comes to civil and criminal issues involving the rights of women.

She would have never taken this case if there was no there there.

Romney perjured himself in either the divorce proceedings or the SEC filing. My oney is opn the divorce proceedings given the performance of Staples stock.

Mitt Romney lied his ass of under oath to insure his buddy got off light in a messy divorce.

Bank on it.

41. I hope that's what it is.

As much as I love the idea of something juicy and salacious, I actually think this story would be worse for Mitt. It fits the narrative that he is a liar and a sleazy businessman with shady financial dealings. I think this will hurt him with women as much, if not more, than allegations of an affair. This fits with all the worst characteristics we've seen from Mitt, his dishonesty, his disdain for women, etc.

When I talk to people who are undecided or who are voting for President Obama without enthusiasm, the thing I hear from them about Mitt, over and over again, is that they don't trust him. I wish President Obama would drop the cutesy Romnesia thing and cut to the chase and just say "You can't trust him." Maybe this story will really bring that point home.

Anyone who was already going to vote Romney will yawn at this and turn the channel back to Fox.

If Romney can outsource American jobs to foreign companies for profit, invest in Chinese government oil, make money off Stericycle, dodge taxes offshore, dodge the draft in France, and lie his ass off with every breath.... do you REALLY think low estimates of stock value will even cause an eye blink?

Not a chance.
