Mitt Romney's Skeleton Closet: Scandals, Quotes, and Character



Realchange.org, famed for their publishing of scandals on all candidates for President since 1995, posted their "Skeleton Closet" list of scandals, quote, and revelations of character of this year's presumptive candidate, Willard Mitt Romney - and it's quite extensive....from the introduction:

"Other politicians look at this guy and say, "Wow, that dude is a phony, two-faced, flip-flopping weasel." And that's really saying something.

"But there was a prophecy, the White Horse Prophecy spoken by Joseph Smith himself on May 6,1843 in the presence of Edwin Rushton and Theodore Turley. It holds: "A terrible revolution will take place in the land of America, such as has never been seen before; for the land will be literally left without a supreme government. And every species of wickedness will run rampant."

"Anyway, Mormons (the White Horse) will get rich with gold and minerals, the heathen Chinese will invade a land beyond the Rockies, banks in every nation except England and Utah will fail, and only the White Horse will remain to save the day. (We'll let you guess who the 'Red Horse' and 'Black Horse' represent.)

"This prophecy was discussed when Mitt's dad, George, ran for president, and again when Orrin Hatch ran, and Glenn Beck dogwhistled it after Obama was elected. (No one brought it up with with John Huntsman, though.) The Mormon Church does not endorse it formally, perhaps because of the part about how 'the doings of the "Black" Horse will he terrible' because 'they will have fear of becoming slaves again.' But Mitt Romney and his father admit discussing it during George's presidential run.

"Is now the time for Mitt Romney to ride to America's rescue?  For 'when the Constitution of the United States hangs, as it were, upon a thread as fine as a single silk fiber, they will have to call for the 'Mormon' Elders to save it from utter destruction; and they will step forth and do it.'" (http://www.realchange.org/romney.htm)

And this is only the beginning.  Titles include: Quotes, Out of Touch, For Seamus: Putting His Dog On The Roof, Ill-Gotten Gains, Phoney Varmint Hunter, Predatory Capitalism, Medicaire Fraud That Made Him Rich, Hired Illegal Immigrants, Flat-Out Liar, Draft Dodger And Chickenhawk, and Top Aide Illegally Impersonating Police Officers.

Romney represents the epitome of the Wealthy Conservative in all its criminal glory, a caricature of the Monopoly Man with a sociopathic sincerity replacing the Monopoly Man's cuddliness.



At the rate new scandals and lies are uncovered by journalists, Realchange.org is going to have to revise this up to the day of the GOP Convention.  While George W. Bush may have been the worst and most intellectually challenged of  the Presidential nominess in our nation's history, fairly elected or not, Mr. Romney may be thought of as the biggest liar with the smallest "tell."

Take a look at the man betray not an iota of guilt when he lies through his teeth on t.v.  While most sane people would blush at some of the whoppers he drags out of his, er, head, Romney smiles as though he was just granted entry through the Pearly Gates.

The American people have often voted foolishly, as the regimes of Nixon, Reagan, and the Bush boys shows, but they can hardly be blamed if Conservatism's Poster Boy makes it to the White House.

He's that good.

The problem with his assumption of the Presidency is, of course, is that his rule might be the last nail on the coffin of Democracy.  His election would probably drag Congressional and Senatorial Conservatives in office on Romney's coattails, and with the packed Supreme Court it would only be a matter of a few years before the middle class of the New Deal would be wiped out completely in favor of a new Age of Serfdom And Feudalism.
