Funny that Romney is now being attacked for saving the Olympics, even though he donated his salary to charity.

Did people forget about Obama failing to secure the Olympics for Chicago?

One such example of success, vs failure.

He received more than a billion dollars from the Feds. I think the American taxpayers should be given accolades for saving the Olympics? Don't you?

Flip-Flop Romney also received federal government handouts while CEO of Bain, while hypocritally telling voters that Obama is for "more handouts".

Political Animal - When Romney sought (and received) a bailout

The guy is a pure piece of excrement.

The problem with Romney is that he has an enormous ego and a big mouth. He should keep quiet especially when he is guilty of the things he is protesting.

Ok, let me get this straight?

Bailout for auto giants: BAD
Bailout for olympics: GOOD

Hypocrisy!!!!!

Nope, his name Isnt the US Olympic committee.

Gosh, when I thought Obama's campaign could be any more hapless, they go and remind peope they used tax payer money to give their political patrons a car company. How dumb can they be? They are having a very bad week.

Ah try again. The other US based Olympics did not come close to getting the money that Salt Lake received. Romney used his connections in DC to pillage the coffers.

Begging 101: Click on the link and let Romney explain how to get federal tax dollars, ear marks, bailouts, handouts, etc....

2002 Romney touted that he knew how to get money out of the federal government » The Right Scoop -

Ah, there it is, the stock rightie response: they all do it (and the variant, but Obama did it too, accompanied by whining). Two wrongs does make a rightie, I guess.
