He mentions their families, coaches and even the communities that built the venues they practiced their sport in. See, even Romney the great two (or is it three?) faced flip flopper knows full well that individuals don't get anywhere without the help of the people and communities around them. The video has gone viral so just Google it if you are curious.

Here's a good example:
If you're a Republican governor, like say, Rick Scott, you can then point to increased revenues and job creation, but in effect, all you've accomplished is sucking taxpayer money into private coffers. There are many other examples of this tactic, the most egregious of which is the private contracting of military services and even warfare itself to profiteers during the Iraq and Afghan wars. Other examples: bailing out the banks after their casino gambling sprees, ENRON, et al, ad nauseum.
And let's not forget candidate Romney, the vulture capitalist.

I didn't just fall off the turnip truck, fool. I know what a vulture capitalist is. I know what Romney did, and it stinks. Your denials and distortions don't change the facts. Why don't you explain why Romney doesn't want the public, aka "you people" to see his tax returns.
Did you ever figure out the meaning of the word "fiduciary"?
