    I have an IRA account for retirement but I can only contribute a few thousand dollars a year.

    How the heck was Romney able to get 100 million in his tax-deferred IRA account??

    Has Romney explained how he did it?

    I read the article from the WSJ you quoted. Did you? Seems clear enough. Could the average Joe do it?? Probably not since they don't have the $$$ or knowledge. He apparently does. So what? Since I don't see a story in the paper about the IRS hauling him away in chains, it's most likely perfectly legal. But I'm sure that won't matter to you.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    What does this have to do with fixing the economy or creating jobs?

    According to the article that you cited, his IRA included Bain stocks, which have increased in value. That's not illegal, immoral or unethical. OTOH, how did Obama buy his house in Chicago (hint: convicted mobster Tony Rezko helped). How did Obama pay for college? What were his grades? Class standing? Did he get into Harvard law on his academic performance, or was he an affirmative action case? What influence did Frank Marshall Davis have on him when he was growing up? What is his relationship with unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers?
