Romney has been honing his lying skills for years it appears! This testimony is about to be released so that the public can see these lies - lied for a friend against his wife devaluing Staples! Well, he comes by it naturally I guess!

Just wanting to say Maggie..thanks for all the great threads today so far..lots of facts to be had in them for all to read about,instead of just reading lies and B.S. rightwing comments on threads.

I do beleive that Romney and his male buds do see women as just breeding use and then discard if and when they are of the mind to do so...leaving the ex-wives with as little as possible in their divorces regardless of their massive fortunes. I wonder how many off shore accounts the guy had that never even made it into the divorce proceedings....Doesn't surprise me that Mitt would lie for a fellow million/billionaire ...even under oath as he has little to no respect for the laws of our land ....which he apparently thinks is only there for others to follow...that are of a lot less wealth than he and very wealthy buds.

Report: Romney Lied in Court And Then Screwed Over His Friend's Wife During Nasty Divorce With Staples Founder

A report on the gossip news website could codify the perception of Romney only caring about the rich and willing to screw over others. October 24, 2012

Mitt Romney’s “47 percent” remarks codified an image of the candidate as only caring about the rich and willing to screw over the rest of the population. A report on the gossip news website could add to that perception.

TMZ reports today that Romney lied “under oath when he testified in the divorce of his good friend and screwed the friend's wife out of a lot of money in the process,” according to the wife of the founder of Staples.

The story goes like this: Staples founder Tom Stemberg was in the midst of a nasty divorce with his wife Maureen Stemberg Sullivan. Romney, a friend of Stemberg’s who invested in his company, testified in court that Staples was not worth very much. Staple’s stock was “overvalued,” Romney said in court, adding, “I didn't place a great deal of credibility in the forecast of the company's future.”

Romney’s testimony helped ensure that Maureen received very little money when the divorce case was resolved. But the controversy comes from this: “We're told just weeks after the divorce ended, Romney and Tom went to Goldman Sachs and cashed in THEIR stock for a fortune. Short story -- Romney allegedly lied to help his friend and screw the friend's wife over.”

TMZ doesn’t stop there. They also report that as Sullivan was suffering from cancer and multiple sclerosis, Stemberg canceled her health insurance. The kicker is that Stemberg was then working with Romney as a health care adviser.

The divorce trial is attracting attention now as famous lawyer Gloria Allred, representing Maureen Stemberg Sullivan, goes to court to “tell a judge that [Maureen Sullivan] does not object to unsealing testimony given by presidential candidate Mitt Romney in her divorce case,” the Washington Post reports.

A Romney lawyer told TIME magazine that the candidate “has no objection to letting the public see that testimony.” But if the TMZ report is true, Romney might regret those words in court

All these lies Romney keeps getting caught in reminds me of one that ironically involves Joseph Smith, founder of the the Mormon religion to which Romney belongs. Smith once lived in Pennsylvania along the Susquehanna River and sometimes held services along its banks. As local historians report he astounded his followers by actually walking on water till one Sunday in mid miracle he fell with a splash into the river. It turns out someone as a prank had removed one of the boards from the walkway Joseph Smith had built a few inches beneath the surface of the water which aided him in performing his "miracle". Unfortunately for us, should Romney be elected, he may be as dishonest as the founder of the religion he follows.

Romney seems to be the focus of many accusations of lying. Why is that? How would this shape a potential Romney presidency?
