TMZ has obtained the complete transcripts of Mitt Romney's testimony -- which he's accused of lying under oath to screw over his friend's ex-wife.

The testimony was given in 1991 at Norfolk Probate and Family Court in Massachusetts.

During his examination, Romney was asked how he first became acquainted with Staples and Tom Stemberg. Romney explained ... a venture capital businessman from another firm "mentioned to me a gentleman named Tom Stemberg had a business plan to commence an office supply chain and was looking for capital to fund that."

Romney continued, "I told him I didn't think it was a very good idea, but I'd look at it."

Wish we could get other things unsealed, such as Obama's college transcripts. Wonder why he's so secretive. Must be something juicy.

No big deal at all. A mere attempt from the democraps to slow Romney's momentum.

Allred. Synonymous with the phrase that rhymes with witch hunt (if the word "witch rhymed with "stupid").

And as for TMZ...you remind me of Maureen Sullivan...bitter, scorned, and eager to talk sh!t even though you're full of it.

We Clinton lied under oath about a bj the Republicans tried to have him impeached. Romney lies about a business and it value, to help screw over a woman who legally deserved 1/2, under oath, and the republicans are trying to change to focus to what the woman did get. That's not the point. The point is romeny lied under oath PERIOD but to top it off, it was about the value of a company. And we want to trust him to turn the economy around?

Look at the little lib children trying to bash President Romney. Ha. They see the future and it hurts. Levin must be sweating bullets.

Oh my God, What to do? Bash, bash, bash. Maybe that will help. LOL.

Not working clowns. Go to Washington and help "The Annointed One" pack his bags.

Romney is coming to save you. You're just too slow to realize it yet.
