So he had time to move his holdings around to reduce the appearance of profiting off laying off others (except you have to wonder why he's putting money in the Cayman Islands instead of the U.S.). Let's see how he made his money while he was still in private business. It goes towards finding out what his business practices were, which he claims are his best assets. So put your money where your mouth is.
I don't see what difference school grades make if a person has been successful. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs weren't the best students, and that didn't stop them from being successful. It's just the latest lame effort since the birthers have been discredited. I don't care what grades Willard got, that's not what makes him who he is. He could have flunked out and still been set up in business by daddy. Obama had to make it on his own.
You are aware that "daddy" didn't set Mitt Romney up with anything? He made all his own money. Obama hasn't actually done anything in his life except run for office, and be in office. Which for him consists mainly of voting present, or going to many parties and vacations on the taxpayer dime. The very little bit where he worked in private industry, by all accounts he was a failure, a no-nothing who had to have others do his work for him, since he didn't understand anything about finance, (he wrote a newsletter for a financial firm). And his law professor claims are inflated, (he was never a professor at University of Chicago, merely a lecturer).
Romeny has released a number of years worth of tax records. Nor did he "profit from laying others off". That was a lie made up by his opponents, easily debunked by talking to the people who were there--- or simply by noting when these layoffs happened, and when he worked at Bain. The dates don't coincide. By many years in most cases. In other cases, layoffs simply didn't happen during his tenure. Some of the people who were said to be laid off then have rebutted in---having in fact been promoted while he was at Bain, and they credit him for that.
As for how he made his money---it's public record. Unlike say the house deal Obama got that resulted in some criminal investigations.
