Romney is lucky the horse didn't do well, this has been fodder for late night, Colbert has certainly ridden Rafalca for all she's worth.
Hopefully they'll bring in more events for people to compete with their medical devices.
I seriously can't believe how poorly Romney seems to have planned his campaign considering he's been plotting it for years, seems like one political liability after the other. He could have cleaned up his tax situation in 2006 and then would be some way towards getting that off his shoulder, then his house(s). Gotta sacrifice if you want to win (read, only buy your wife one Cadillac)...not saying he won't be a decent prez but we all know that doesn't win elections.

Quoting Confuscius (Reply 1): That's a little over a $1,000 tax deduction per point scored.
So, are you saying income from horses (e.g. race prizes, stud fees, income from breeding, etc.) should not be taxed? After all, if you have a problem with the expenses associated with breeding a horse being deducted then you cannot possibly find it moral that the associated revenue gets taxed. Why should rich people who own horses get to make free, untaxed income? Are you in the 1%, by any chance?
Read this very carefully, I shall write this only once!

Why do you even care how Romney's wife's horse did in the Olympics? I think you'd sneer and laugh just the same if one of his daughters was a syncronysed swimmer. It seems really petty. He ran an Olympic games why is it surprising they would want to continue to be part of them?

Quoting mt99 (Reply 7): OH, it it not "his". He claims ignorance and calls it "Ann's Sport" when asked about it.
IN the same way that my wife enjoys gardening and I know nothing about it, so when someone asks about the garden or comments about how beautiful it is I give her the credit and tell them I had nothing to do with it because for fact, "I had nothing to do with it".
Why should I claim something that I am not involved in. Give the person who is actually doing it the credit.
