1. Bush was an idiot.

At least he stood by his decisions right or wrong. This guy is all over the place. You know the Repubs are holding their noses.

2. Mitt Romney's Olympics didn't get there alone either.

As you posted here:

A September 2000 report from the United States General Accounting Office tells us that tax payers paid nearly $1.3 billion for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. The majority of that, 80% of that, in fact, $1 billion of that, was spent not on the game themselves, but on infrastructure upgrades. With 51% going to improving highways and 28% to improve mass transit.

To put that into perspective, we, the taxpayers, spent roughly $75 million on the Los Angeles Olympics and $609 million on the Atlanta Olympics.


Thank you Amerigo, your posts rock!

5. Thank you RSL...

...I DEFINITELY plan on keeping an eye on this guy between now and November. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. On "Hardball" a few moments ago, Chris Matthews sliced that one line out of the clip to show how easy it would be to make an attack ad...just like Romney did with Obama's speech.
