Part of Obama's "national security force"?

Watergate-style break in?

Many, many questions.

Or someone trying to capitalize on Mitt not showing his tax returns. Money can be quite the motivator.

I hope they catch the people that are responsible and they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

The "Group" wants a million bucks to keep Romney's tax returns secret. That's a drop in the bucket for Mitt, but if he pays up more cries of What does he have to hide? will arise. If he calls their bluff, will they actually release his returns? Difficult choice.

Option #3: Wait for the Secret Service to find the perps and take 'em down. Doesn't sound like they'll be too hard to find.

Blame the victim. Nice. Sounds like Clinton's handlers in the 90s.

I just stated Mitt's options, without making judgment.

And did you allude to Clinton's penis again?

See, blackmail doesn't really work unless the person you are trying to balckmail has something to hide.

Mitt has stated that he isn't releasing any more returns. These people are trying to leverage that stance to get money. If Mitt doesn't care he doesn't have to pay these people anything.

That doesn't blame the victim; that's how blackmail works.

Once again, I hope they get caught.

Of course.

Are Romney/Ryan are brazenly lying about everything ?

Fact-check: Clinton's penis.

Romney thinks that cold fusion is the answer to our energy needs, and that is how we should be "conducting electricity":

I believe in laboratories, looking at ways to conduct electricity with -- with cold fusion, if we can come up with it. It was the University of Utah that solved that. We somehow can’t figure out how to duplicate it.

Slightly disturbing to think that's what goes on at the University of Utah.

What do you suppose they say about evolution?

To be fair, that's what went on in the Chemistry department at Utah. Neither Pons nor Fleischmann were physicists.

Henry Vilas wrote:]Group threatens to leak Romney tax records


This kind of thing just seems to dog Obama's trail:


One month before the 2004 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, Obama was down in the polls, about to lose to Blair Hull, a multimillionaire securities trader. But then the Chicago Tribune leaked the claim that Hull's second ex-wife, Brenda Sexton, had sought an order of protection against him during their 1998 divorce proceedings.

Those records were under seal...
<snip>
After having held a substantial lead just a month before the primary, Hull's campaign collapsed with the chatter about his divorce. Obama sailed to the front of the pack and won the primary. Hull finished third with 10 percent of the vote.

As luck would have it, Obama's opponent in the general election had also been divorced!

<snip>

Four days after Judge Schnider unsealed the custody records, Ryan dropped out of the race for the horror of (allegedly) propositioning his own wife and then taking "no" for an answer.

<Snip>

And that's how Obama became a U.S. senator. He destroyed both his Democratic primary opponent and his Republican general election opponent with salacious allegations about their personal lives taken from "sealed" court records.

I am sure it is all just coincidence and that Obama and his minions had nothing to do with unsealing these records.
