Mitt Romney, Monsanto Man

Though Mitt Romney has been campaigning for president since 2006, it’s alarming how little is known about critical chapters of his business biography. Nothing spells that out more clearly than his ties to Monsanto—the current target of a mid-September Occupy nationwide action—whose dark history features scandals involving PCBs, Agent Orange, bovine growth hormone, NutraSweet, IUD, genetically modified (GM) seed and herbicides, reaching back to the 1970s and ’80s. That’s when Monsanto was the largest consulting client of Romney’s employer, Bain & Company, and when Romney helped move Monsanto from chemical colossus to genetic giant, trading one set of environmental controversies for another.

Despite research suggesting the toxic effects of Monsanto’s Roundup, NYC continues to douse its parks with it: here.

The video of a Mitt Romney campaign fundraiser posted Monday on the Mother Jones web site has provided a revealing glimpse of what the financial magnates think and what they say to one another in the privacy of their board rooms and mansions: here.

Lani Gerson, Truthout: “In 1982, the newly appointed Bishop Mitt Romney rang the doorbell to my North Cambridge home…. Romney served me with a letter, not unlike a sheriff with a summons, informing me of my trial of excommunication scheduled for the following Saturday. How could I be tried for excommunication when I had long ago quit the church?” Here.

  1. If Mitt Romney were to stand before the American people and declare, “It is my most solemn belief that water is wet,” I would immediately jump into the shower to make sure.

    The funny part is, so would his entire campaign staff, but not before poring over their paperwork to see if the candidate had ever told a crowd of Tea Party yahoos that water was, in fact, dry, because that’s what they wanted to hear. That might sound silly, but if Mitt ever saw a sign in one of his crowds that read, “Watr is drie, Obuma is from Kenia, keep your govorment hands off my Midicare,” he’d probably change his stance on moisture right on the spot, and dozens of soaked campaign staffers would have to find a change of clothes.

    It’s funny … except it’s not. There are not enough hours in the day to keep track of the river of outright nonsense and gibberish that has been flowing out of the Romney campaign over the last several weeks.

    Obama has not cornered the market on truthfulness by any stretch of the imagination either, and keeping track of it all does leave us, from time to time, feeling like we want to eat our own teeth. But here at Truthout, it is our job to document this mess, to call out the lies from whatever side of the aisle when they come, and to make damned sure you know what the truth really is.
