Why did Mitt have his fortune in a "blind trust"??

Can he get away with that?

Do all millionaires and billionaires have their fortunes in a blind trust?

How long has he had this "blind trust"?

It is my understanding that investments are put into a blind trust when they might somehow affect a politicians decisions about conflicts of interest? If Mitt has been a businessman for all these years, why would he need a "blind trust"?

Are we to believe that he has no idea where his money is invested?

Something stinks in Denmark...and the Caymans...and Switzerland...



Go back to sleep you stupid moron.

Well, they couldn't force themselves to believe that either Bush or Chaney had their money in blind trusts, so it follows that they are unable to believe that Romney would do so.

This isn't about a "blind trust," it is about a threat to a DU nose picker's God, The One, O Blah Blah the Magnificent.

This "blind trust that has Kenyuck and his butt buddies at the DUmp so worked up over wasn't such a concern for them with respect to King George the Puppet Master. They aren't the least bit inquisitive of their millionaire Hollyweird heroes or Mikey Moron. They don't question where the O Blah Blah's stash their millions of ill gotten gain.

This "blind trust" that concerns them so much:rolleyes: could be a trust fund for the blind and they would still find fault because it is a GOPer doing it.:cool:

Good Lord, what stupidity.

"Can he get away with that?" Yes, you idiot, he certainly can "get away" with that because this is still America (barely), and people are allowed to do what they want with their money (mostly).



Fools.

They are SOOO STUPID. This is like when democrats forced as in FORCED Dick Cheney to sell his interest in Halliburton right before the price fell and Cheney made a fortune off the sale. It came so close in time that democrats wanted an investigation as to the transaction. A transaction that wouldn't have happened if the democrats hadn't demanded it.

Romney has his money in a blind trust because he is in politics and can honestly say he has no idea what stock interests he owns.

These are the same people that are so ignorant they go around saying corporations aren't people.
