    No proof, not even much in the way of evidence. Just an accusation.

    •  The Boston Globe (0+ / 0-)

      is saying he did . Are they printing a false article?

      a long habit of not thinking a thing WRONG, gives it a superficial appearance of being RIGHT, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom.

        And even if they did say it, they present no evidence that it's true.

      •  Jamesleo - if the Globe is saying he lied (3+ / 0-)

        then they really don't understand how startups are funded by venture capital. That would be very sad given that the Boston area is one of the primary sources and benefactors of venture capital.

        There is nothing in the Globe article that has a hint of proof that Romney lied on the stand. If you read the transcript, and have knowledge in this area, his testimony was a vanilla primer on pre-public financing and the valuation of different classes of stock. He then offered an opinion on a issue to which there is no right or wrong answer.

        "let's talk about that"
