His spokesman, Eric Fehrnstrom, said he later gave that amount to charity.

Dan, It's clear that you are not a fan of Romney. However, your recitation of his work to turn the Salt Lake Games from financial debacle into a profitable venture, and then reminding us that he gave all his remuneration for that three year effort to charity, are hardly facts bolstering the proposition that the man has no substance or integrity.

Apparently yet another instance of their posting snippets they think supports their opinions, only to discover upon closer examination that they just blew another foot off ... after which, of course, they blame walking on their tib/fibs -- i.e., their stumps -- on George W. Bush.

Speaking of fibs, I'd bet a board that some of these guys actually believe the one that Romney dodges taxes by having accounts in Switzerland and the Cayman Islands (the IRS says he pays every cent owed.) Or the one about his tax increase on the middle class (the econ prof cited in that fabrication directly and publicly refuted that claim by proving that the Democrats fabricated it.) Or the $5T tax increase accusation shot down by the rest of Romney's paragraph. Or that more teachers = better education (increasing the student:teacher ratio from 22 to 15 over the last 40 years had zero effect on math and reading performance.)

Wow, you read much into what I wrote. Steven Bard posted a promotion of Romney as a good guy that contained a patently inaccurate statement. I called him on it. That was it. I've not said "the man has no substance or integrity." Nor did my post imply that. It only directly contradicted a part of Bard's post.

Mr Gybes supplying others with an opinion.
Again.
Notice how he goes nuclear when you provide him with one?
I sympathize with him. It is a dishonest habit to constantly misrepresent the views of others.
Talk Radio contains little else, so those who listen to that lobbyist media crap pick up nasty habits.

.. and went a bit further, honestly, without omitting stuff that might make Mitt look good, because you show substance and integrity. It's a lost cause though, those guys are in "if you don't have anything bad to say about O, don't say it". Or, for the worst of them here, "if you don't have anything bad to say about O, make something up", so they don't understand when faced with mature behavior.

The man works for nothing but a performance bonus? If all the govt employees and union members worked for only a performance bonus, this world would run like a Swiss watch, and most people who worked hard would be rich.

Romney clearly understands how to motivate people, especially himself.

You must have missed the post to which Steven was responding directly and which was attached half an inch above his words. Don't you agree it's a good idea to understand the context before firing off a rebuttal? Otherwise one finds that comments made on something taken out of context encourages lemmings to jump on your back.

Hey, Steven, the man worked for a SALARY and a bonus. He agreed to waive both if the committee didn't end up in the black.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. In fact, Mitt and his wife donated about that much to the committee. That's very generous.

I posted that to contradict the incorrect statement that he didn't take a salary when, in truth of fact, he did. He was under no obligation to make any charitable donation, but the money accrued to him and was subject to being taxed as ordinary income. He then could list and calculate his charitable donations as possible deductions. That's how that works, not "Romney never took a salary" when he did.

Let's face it, this is what we are afraid of. A president who tells his supporters to get up in their faces. Who doesn't use his power to bring us together, but uses his influence to tear us apart.
