1. Snip.

"Multiple sources connected with the divorce tell TMZ ... during Tom's uber nasty divorce case with ex-wife Maureen, Mitt Romney gave a deposition and testified during the trial that Staples was worth virtually nothing. Romney testified that the company was worth very little and Tom was a dreamer and "the dream continues."

Romney characterized the Staples stock as "overvalued," adding, "I didn't place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future."

Partly as a result of Romney's testimony, Maureen got relatively little in the divorce, but we're told just weeks after the divorce ended, Romney and Tom went to Goldman Sachs and cashed in THEIR stock for a fortune. Short story -- Romney allegedly lied to help his friend and screw the friend's wife over."


I actually do think this is a reflection on Romney's character, if true. Not to mention, the legal ramifications.

3. Pointless

First off, it's very difficult to prove Romney lied. Valuing a company always involves a degree of subjectivity.

It's an opinion.

This whole story is nothing. Don't get your hopes up.

5. He will use the old dodge...

"that's what I believed to be true at the time."
