Romney Says Porn Crackdowns Not Tax Returns are His Top Priority


Mitt Romney has a bit of a disclosure problem. While he refuses to release his tax returns, the Republican nominee has been privately promising right wing culture warriors he will crackdown on pornography.

The radical right wing group Morality in Media blew the lid off of Romney’s secret promise to them by blabbing it to The Daily Caller,

Trueman, the president of Morality in Media, contacted the Romney campaign earlier this year about the “untreated pandemic” of Internet pornography. “They got back to us right away,” he said.

Bob Flores, another former Justice Department official who prosecuted pornographers, accompanied Trueman to an hour-long meeting with Romney foreign and legal policy director Alex Wong, Trueman said.

“Wong assured us that Romney is very concerned with this, and that if he’s elected these laws will be enforced,” Trueman told TheDC. “They promised to vigorously enforce federal adult obscenity laws.”

Trueman said he would like for Romney to speak publicly about cracking down on porn, but believes Romney avoids the subject because he “saw that Rick Santorum got beat up in the mainstream press for being so forthright.”

If there is one consistency in Mitt Romney’s behavior, it is a total aversion to public disclosure. Romney is a candidate who likes to operate in secret. Much like the Bush/Cheney administration he treats the American people like they are on a need to know basis, and Mitt decides what you need to know.

The problem is that Mitt Romney has decided that cracking down on adult entertainment is more of a priority that being completely honest with voters about what is in his tax returns, or what exactly he was doing at Bain. Initially Romney was compared to John Kerry, but his secretive behavior and his deep admiration for Dick Cheney make Richard Nixon a better comparison.

You may remember the Morality in Media crusaders as the same group that got most of the Republican presidential field to promise to criminalize what people decide to watch in the privacy of their own homes. Before the Morality in Media folks get too carried away, they should remind themselves of who they are dealing with. A promise from Mitt Romney is as legitimate as a three dollar bill.

Romney is a candidate who will say anything to any group in order to get their vote, but his true intentions are revealed by the fact that he has taken campaign cash from an adult filmmaker.

Mitt Romney is the candidate who believes it is more important to peep into your bedroom and tell you what you can watch than to be open and honest with voters about where and how he made his money.

Bad Boys whatcha’ gonna’ do when Romney’s porn police come for you?

  1. Of course he is going to crack down on pornography. He is going to personally review every questionable film to make sure it’s not too dirty for us to see.

  2. I will do and say anything for voters. Votes for Romney!

    Not going to live by religious laws kids. Aint gonna do it

  3. Has it occurred to anyone that one of the reasons he’s hiding his information is because it might implicate dealings with his Mormom cult finances? That he may have been doing investments for them, that they are part of the Bain equation and he had better not let the rest of the county know what they’ve been doing with all those “tithing funds” that Mittens has been funneling for them…?

    That if he goes down, they get exposed too?

    It is true that Utah has the most internet subscribers of porno–something like 8 out of 10 households (?)

  4. Yep. The repubs are aaaall about less intrusive government and getting rid of the nanny state….what’s that? Adults watching other adults f*******!!? Hell we can’t have THAT!

    How long must we put up with these cretins talking out of both sides of their mouth?

  5. He can’t come public because he would lose some of his base. It’s documented that the evangelical Christians are the biggest purchasers of Internet porn nationwide. I had also read that Utah has the most Internet subscribers of porn. He would be biting off his nose to spite his face. He won’t release his tax returns prior to seeking the nomination. Not exactly the most reliable. Also if tax cuts for the rich cause job creation – how do you account for putting your money in the Caymans or in Swiss bank accounts. How is that money trickling down into the middle class job creation? He is so full of it, that he must have trouble finding pants that fit. Thanks to SinghX for pointing out the connection to the Mormon church. I hadn’t thought about that.

  6. Show us your tax returns, Romney the 1%er, who has multiple foreign-investor-laden tax havens (Republican approved tax evasions/havens).

    [insert obnoxious buzzer noise here]: change of subject (ooowwww shiny object) NOT acceptable.

    But thanks for playing, morality police Mormons, er, Republicans for more governmental management of your sexuality.

  7. But wait. Most of this porn activity is in the southern states. You know, the only ones dumb enough to ever go vote for Mittens? If this gets out, all those folks might just stay home on election day. Has Mitt cleared this with Jindahl?

  8. So, not only are people from Utah the biggest customers of porn but one of the biggest gambling areas in the country is right on the Utah/Nevada border. But those mormons don’t use porn or gamble do they? Nah, their religion says not to. Biggest effing hypocrits.

  9. Oh, he’d do it all right, and they’d still support him. The people who vote for him will think to themselves “they’ll go after the strange-looking pervert down the street and leave me alone” (never mind the strange-looking person might be a monk who takes his vows seriously and is a real Christian). He’ll push it because there will be a lot of winking and nudging… and then they’ll have another law to crack down on the poor and middle class – everyone involved except the 1% who supports the jackass will think “it won’t affect me!”

    It’s more than show (hypocrisy), but that is the essence. That, and they’ll have nice heavy fines and taxes for people… taking more money and delivering it to the 1%.

  10. That thought DID occur to me… that if he gets exposed, the Mormon “Church” might also get in deep trouble.

    I’ve long suspected that he has a lot more money than he makes out that he has… an entire factor more. That it would be tied up with the Mormon cult makes perfect sense.

  11. Who cares what willard’s priority is? We The People want to see his Tax Returns. He wants to work for us(yeah right) then he has to Show Us The Tax Returns. At least 12 Years and he has to stop all this bullshite lying..and that goes for his entitled wife, too.

    What a bullshit family trying to impose themselves on us.

  12. You are right, there are strong ties between the LDS Church and Bain and Utah is #1 for both porn and bankruptcies because Mormons are encouraged to pop out babies whether they can afford them or not. Mormons are also highly inbred; Google Mormons and inbreeding- there is an interesting article entitled “Fatal Inheritance”. I think they seek to marry and convert non-Mormons in part to out breed and reduce the frequency of birth defects. I have had extensive interactions with Mormons over the past 5-10 years and their belief system makes my skin crawl.

  13. wow… that will sure send alot of the Republican closet cases right to the park restrooms soliciting undercover cops.

  14. I believe it is the King family who owns all the gambling “machines” along the boarders; they bought them from a nice Jersey family a long time ago. I used to have the link to back up this evidence…it has been so long since I’ve had to drudge this up…
    but it’s not rumor and is true…oh and the Kings are notorious polygamous, the kind you don’t want your daughter to date (she’ll be pulled into the fold, pregnant before you can say Warren Jeffs).

  15. Romney plans to rid America of pornography in order to prevent a collapse of society … which makes perfect sense if you are worried about millions of people going blind and developing hairy palms.

  16. Funny, you say that I am a light skinned black woman and could pass for white. When I was younger (17) I used to stay with family friends in the suburbs and one of my friends was a Mormon in the neighborhood and I used to go to youth events with her. They tried to convert me. The family I was staying with told my Mother they were trying to convert me my Mother she lost it and sent me away to visit my Grandmother for the rest of the summer. But before I left she told me that the Mormon church did not accept black people. I went to another event and told this to a bishop and he said I was acceptable to them because “God had blessed me with white skin”. He then asked if either of my parents were dark skinned and I said no. Then and there I realized what my Mother told me was true. I left a couple of days later to visit my Grandmother in another state. That ended my Mormon experience.

  17. And the LDS owned Marriott empire has pay for view porn in all of their properties. That would mess up the money train of the Mormons. Rmoney is again just pandering for votes and will do nothing to eliminate porn.

  18. Seems Romney is such a ‘Man of Principle’ he’ll jump on any passing bandwagon ……. with luck one of these bandwagons will run him over!! In any other mature democracy this buffoon would be laughed off the political stage!!!!

  19. Porn is just terrible for ‘Pro-Lifer’ Romney but the aborted unborn baby disposal business is just fine!

  20. Keep in mind the tax laws about charitable “giving” and his required “tithing or no heaven clause”…
    That the mormon church is supposed to be non-profit and he could potentially be involved in hiding their investments that he set up in the Caymens which are not showing up on his tax returns; his 2010 returns (or the “paper” provided) did not show his off-shore accounts, which is illegal…he may not be just protecting himself, but all those solid marble temples…all of the sudden, me thinks the “elders” don’t think it was such a good idea for him to run as the rest of the world’s are now turning, getting a good look at what “secrecy” means…as in, this goes beyond the question of why is no one allowed in their temples who isn’t a card carrying member?
