(CNN) - More than a dozen pieces of jewelry were stolen from former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Deer Valley, Utah home last week, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Park City police told the paper that the thief was likely someone who had access to the house. There was no sign of forced entry.

The $5 million home is currently up for sale, along with another Romney residence in Massachusetts.

The former Massachusetts governor will address activists at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington Friday, as he aims for his third win in the annual gathering’s presidential preference straw poll.

    @ No Incumbents 2010 –

    Sniffit's unreachable; like having a battle of wits with an unarmed man....most that post here are deeply in OBama's backside, to the point where he could commit murder, and they'd justifiy it somehow...

    @ Linda from Minnesota –

    So, you don't want both sides to "hate," huh? And you want them to get along, as long as all agreement is with the whacky liberal agenda...right? Wake-up...woman, OBama sold the biggest con job in the history of the country, and once he's legalized illegals, he'll secure votes for the next election...and when you're paying 40-45% federal taxes on your paycheck...gonna feel good and liberal about that? Liberals are like kids playing with loaded guns.

  5. Get Real!!

    TO ron
    You talk about Bush lying – try listening to your boy Obama. All he has done is lie!! No lobbyists in my administration (3), no pork in this spending bill (well, maybe only 8500 pork bills), tax evaders in his cabinet (1 heads the IRS), bringing the troops home when he becomes president (well, maybe in 16 months, no wait maybe 2 years) and ON AND ON AND ON!!! He is a liar from the word go!! And to think, I thought he would be different – that was my first mistake.

    Poor Mitt. And I don't think Mitt has seven homes like John McCain. Romney only has four or five homes.

    I think this is outragous that people are actually saying he deserved it! Since when is it right to steal? This is laughing at other people's expense, and praising the robber. It seems like to me Democrats are just attacking just because he's a Republican. Get over Democrats!!! Weren't you complaining just last week or so that the Republicans didn't vote on the stimulous package b/c Obama was a Democrat? I think i see a log in your eye. (and btw i don't believe the republicans voted against it b/c Obamas a Democrat, and they ignore the fact that even democrats voted against it)

    I guess the recession is finally trickling up to the rich. Crime is up everywhere in the country. I had my cat converter stolen in broad daylight while I was working and it cost me 2000 dollars to replace it. My neighbor had her car stolen last week and there have been numerous break ins and robberies in the neighborhood and all over town. People are disparate and in times like this they will steal. I am so glad President Obama is working the problem and hopefully we can get through this and come out a better nation. I am sorry Romney was robbed but it is happening to everyone these days.

    @ TCM and No Incumbents 2010

    First, despite being bombastic, I never just attack the person...it's about their ideas (or lack thereof) in their post. Second, I would very much like to hear you both defend the ideology of trickle-down economics when the post by No Incumbents has basically admitted that once people/families accumulate wealth, they do everything they can to horde it. Sure, someone, somewhere, at some point made all that money, but it stayed there, didn't it.

    As for "Liberals have the impression that they deserve a piece of everybody's pie and do not need to work or take risks for it themselves"...that's simply not true. A good source for understanding the disease is to start with understanding the symptoms. The outline of the budget starts with a fantastic explanation of the trends occuring in our economy, widening of the wealth gap, stagnant or decreasing average salaries, ballooning costs of higher education, etc. Please read it and accept that those are not fabrications. The fact is, the "socialism" you're complaining about is just forced trickle-down, because trusting it to occur naturally has not proven a prudent course.

    Let me guess, he's claiming it was the Democrats, right?

    Its amazing that you actually know what the scum wing of the Democratic party will say on here before you even see the first comment. A simpleton is never hard to figure out!

    You are correct about Sniffit...

    Wuz up Sniff. You seem to have an ax to grind. Did you get fired from a corporation for being worthless or something?

    The comments here are sickening.And you people wonder nuts like Coulter come from?

    February 26, 2009 11:54 pm at 11:54 pm |
  24. Bill

    How about exactly providing proof that Romney had his own house for the goal of making a couple extra bucks,before you go making outrageous accusations? The guy`s already rich enough,I doubt he would go this far to make his pocket a tad bit heavier.You far-left nuts are really insane,and you disgust me completely
