Sure he does, it's his money, and he chose to invest it in a blind trust.
If it was Al Gore saying that his money was invested in a blind trust (when he was running for President-nobody really cares about Gore's money,now), and that fund had investments in China, would you say "Al Gore has no say as to where his money is invested? Or if Obama had a 401k that had investments in Chinese businesses, would you slam him with it?

If you liberals were so damn interested in blind trusts, maybe you should look at the Kennedy family fortune which, to my recollection, the vast majority resides in a blind trust. Of course you won't, even though the Kennedy family fortune was made running liquor down from Canada during prohibition and probably has more invested in true tax shelters than Romney's.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

What is it about the words "blind trust" don't you understand? The idea and facts are that the individual has no control over where or how that money is invested and he eternally hopes that the investors controlling it have some idea what they are doing.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
