    Country is falling apart and the Liberals "Socialists" conveniently worry about Romney's Tax returns....(like the IRS doesnt know)!!

    Yet still defending berrys `hidden shadows`....More misdirection from the leftist.

    Between taxes and charity it was about 40 to 44% of his income!?

    Pretty serious coin that.

    Somehow, I'm sure that won't be enough still...

    They're already busy twisting and spinning. If you read the details of Romney's 2011 return, it turns out he donated so much to charity that his effective tax rate, due to the huge deductions, would've been much less than he actually paid. So, he disregarded a large portion of his potential deductions to keep his taxes above the pledged minimum he claims to have paid every year. That's a good thing, right?? Not if you think like this evil bunch (found in a pit of snakes):

    Think Progress tweets:

    The message there is that it's BAD if you're rich and your tax rate is lower than the average middle class household ... never mind that the whole reason your tax rate is so low is because you happened to give away 30% of your AGI.

    If he isn't taking advantage of every loophole he can, I'll be disappointed.

    Romney should counter with "If Obama releases his returns for the 6 years prior to being elected president, then I'll release my past ten years."

    I still want to see the school records of a certain foreign exchange student, listing citizenship, grades, attendance, and who paid for everything.

    I'd rather see him give to charity than the feds. Problem with Obama's charity giving is that they were probably all communist and Muslin Brotherhood front organizations.

    Is that something you expect of other candidates?

    That said, Harry Reid's assertions were waaaaaay out of line. Jon Stewart/The Daily Show ripped him for that.

    I don't know if you heard Reid's attack when he said "Romney's father would be ashamed of him" (or something like that) Stewart took him back to the whipping shed.


    Sharron Angle may have been a nutbag, but Reid is a sleazebag.

    Nope. I posted this article on a debate forum and then they started asking if the charities he gave to where false charities.

    That isn't the issue. BO actively has prevented the school records from being public view. I read somewhere that he spent $4M in legal fees to do so.

    +1!

    Also would like to see every one from 1995 until now.

    If he has nothing to hide then why doesn't he release them?


    Something smells fishy. :whistling:

    Just like we need to see Obama's sealed transcripts, right?

    I mean if he has nothing to hide, why doesn't he release them?

    Sadly as usual the Republicans respond to Democrat charges -which never clears them-
    Democrats simply ignore charges-
    The people who care about Mitt Romneys tax returns are not going to vote for him anyway-
