  •  ConfusedSkyes, when I saw the "pals" in the title (0+ / 0-)

    I knew immediately it was a reference to the "pals around with terrorists" smear against Obama in 2008, re:  Bill Ayres.

    Personally, I have no problem with such a pop- and political-culture reference being used in this way, with regard to charges and investigations of wrongdoing that seem pretty substantiated.

    Given that (as the Salon piece lays out) Romney has released information showing that he has anywhere from 300,000 dollars to over a million dollars of investment in the centers in question, through his Bain holdings-- from which he actively continues to make a profit-- I don't think it's inappropriate to allege a link between Romney and the problems at the centers being discussed.

    That's my two cents.

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

    •  That's fair, but the Mormon connection here feels (0+ / 0-)

      exceptionally thin to me, and I think that's what is making people react so strongly.

      Never attribute to malice what is owed to ignorance or honest disagreement.
