  •  Does he actually HAVE $250M? Is THAT the real (9+ / 0-)

    question -- Romney's 'success' in business may not be success.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

    •  We just don't know. I wondered about that often (6+ / 0-)

      and remembered when Ann Romney seemed particularly ticked that he released whatever he released earlier in the year.  Her attitude about that reminded me of when the ladies at the country club suddenly had to cut back or were embarrassed by the fact their husbands lost their job or lost "headcount" resulting in a cut in pay etc.  Since then I wondered if Romney really had what many estimate as $250M.  I mean he spent $42M of his own money in 2008.  He must have spent more than that this election cycle.  Losing 1/3 of your purported net worth (not even liquid) has got to leave a mark.

      One more thing: this whole not taking a salary (which we can't verify because we haven't seen the tax returns) I think it's because he doesn't want to be obligated by the salary to show his tax returns.
