Seeking to put an end to questions about his finances, Republican U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romoney promised to everybody on Thursday he thinks he paid well over 13-percent taxs every year over the last 20 years. Democrats have criticized Romoney for not publicly releasing more than two years of tax information and openly asked whether the multi-millionaire investment executive is hiding his wealth in secret overseas tax-free bank accounts.

"I did go back and took a peek-a-boo at my little ol' taxes, and over the last 10 years, I promise you that we always paid way more than 13 percent," Romoney told FOX News journalists in Gqueer, South Carolina. "I think the most recent year is 13.6 or maybe something kinda sorta like that." A campaign aide said the rate Romoney was referring to might possibly be for his federal income tax, or his state income tax, or maybe for his property taxes... he really doesn't know either. Debate over Romoney's lack of paying any taxes and his bankrupting the Medicare health program for the poor white elderly and black people has taken the focus of the campaign away from Romoney's top issue: American union jobs he sold to China, India, and Mexico.

Romoney's announcement may have been a lame attempt to put a lid on an issue similar to tying his dog to the roof of his station wagon for a 1,200 mile ride, it having "dogged" him since January, when the Republican party accused him of being evasive about paying zero taxes on the millions he profited from on his financial empire. But Democrats were not satisfied with his continuous lies. "He has the ability to answer all of these questions by releasing as little as 10 years worth of tax returns and he continues to adamantly refuse to do so. So we say: prove it cheating liar Romoney," President Barack Obama's campaign spokesman Evan Dwyer said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid accused Romoney this month of not paying any taxes for 10 years, "zero-point-zero taxes, not one red penny, not one thin dime, not a single doller bill" a claim the mormon Republican cannot deny. Romoney said on Thursday that when tax-free millions in donations to his mormon church were taken into account, his tax rate effectively has been way less than 13 percent. "I just have to say, given the challenges that America faces - 23 million people out of work because I sold their jobs to to third-world countries, evil godless muslims in Iran about to have nuclear bombs built with the help of equipment from German and Russian companies I own profitable stock in, one out of four black or poor white Americans jobless and in poverty - and the American people have such a fascination with the taxes I didn't pay, I find to be none of Americas business as compared to the broad issues that soon to be poor middle class Americans face," he said.

Romoney, a former Massachusetts governor, is the richest men ever to run for U.S. president. He has a net worth of over $250 million, with an unknown amount (possibly billions) in secret tax-free overseas banking accounts. President Obama's re-election campaign and its Democratic allies have featured Romoney's wealth and refusal to release tax returns in ads painting him as stealing the retirement funds of middle class Americans. Polls show that Americans hate the Romoney/Ryan ticket with a passion. Voters in swing states have the lowest opinion of Romoney after hearing about his "invisible empire" business records and tax-free profits. In January Romoney released information showing he had paid an effective tax rate of 13.9 percent in 2010, all from capital gains on $250 million in investment profits. The top tax rate for normal working people is well over 35 percent, while capital gains profits are taxed at a lower rate under 13%, and can be manipulated to the point were they can write off everything and pay nothing in taxes.

If Mitt Romoney promises he paid his taxes, I believe him.
We all should believe him. After all, he's a mormon, and everyone knows that mormons can't lie no matter how hard they try. Also, he sounds honest and looks honest. What more can you ask of this man of God?

We can ask him to tell his running mate to shut the .... up! Ryan's comments this weekend about women's rights and not allowing pregnancy terminations EVEN though that pregnancy was the result of rape just guaranteed Obama another four years.

I'm voting for President Ryan because he is sooo hot!
I saw a pic of him wearing a speedo, and his got 6-pack abs and a large cucumber with tomatoes in his swimsuit. My Obama Mandingo slave fantasies are over... for the moment! Simple Serenity, at 67 years are you too old to have to worry about having sex or getting raped and needing an abortion? Your so lucky! Who care about abortion rights anyhow? Only a loser, that's who! And you're spot on about obamas economy - those wars he started and his wall street bailout have cost us taxpayers a fortune!

anita cox- first of all, anita, ryan is pro-life, he's never said he's for denying abortion to rape victims. it's not a crime to represent those of us that are pro-life. yeah, you're right, anita, he had no business going into lybia and not wall street, it was solyndra and all the entitlement programs for dead beats that obama is responsible for! the facts are- obama said, when he campaigned the first time, that if he didn't fix the economy and grow jobs, then he didn't deserve a second term. guess what anita, we have an 8.3% unemployment rate! obama called bush 'unpatriotic' for accumulating such a massive national debt. guess what, anita, obama has added 5 trillion and counting! times up, mr. obama, you blew it!

Yes you are correct. Ryan Romoney is the handsome pro-life man who co-sponsored Republican Representative Todd Akin's abortion-rape bill. Thank God someone like him will represent us pro-lifers against the evild godless poor and blacks. Obama started that Libyan war that we'll never get out of, just like those Iraq, Afghan, and Iranian wars he's got us stuck in. Sad that over 100,000 Americans have died protecting God's chosen jews from evil godless muslims. And obama gave wall street investors all those trillions of dollars that we'll never see again. And that solyndra is all obama fault cause I seen youtub video showing him delivering suitcases full of trillions through their backdoor. Like you, I could go on and on, but we all know that President Ryan Romoney will save America and once again turn it into God's country!

Give me a break! President Mitt Romoney said he paid an average 13% tax rate. Since his a super honest Mormon, he's got to be telling the truth. Mormons DO NOT LIE. If they do, their magic underwear will strangle their gonads.

We need President Mitt Romoney to smite that muslin balack hussein obamma and once again restore honesty to the White House, honesty like we experienced from Reagan and the Bush's,

Obamma let his evil black muslim friends destroy the Egyptian Embassy Suites, along will killing the manager and great Christian at the Libyan Embassy Suites.

Vice President Biden is probably the one who produced that anti Mohammad movie in order to create a "false flag" situation - in which he'd give obammas secret muslim attack squads the go aheads and kill white Christians.

With the guidance of our great Lord, as soon as President Mitt Romoney and Vice President Ron Paul Ryan take office this November, America will start nuking all these evil muslim countries.

Once all that pesky radiation blows over to Russian and China, American can take over these counties and siphon all the free oil up so gasoline will be under $2 per gallon - as promised by our next Secretary of State Newt Gingrich.

Imagine that great flag, the stars & strips of the United States of America, flying from the top of the Great Pyramids in Cairo!

Imagine that big Egyptian cat statue we call The Sphinxter having President Ronald Reagan's head carved in place of King Tuts, and painted red white and blue!

With God's help, everything is possible!

Booby Gary Gimore - YOU ARE A GREAT AMERICAN!

When President Mitt Romoney takes office, you will live the great uber-capitalist "Ayn Rand" life just like me. I'm living the American dream, and I got my start in Huntspatch Alabama, just like YOU. Now I have crews of ex-con black afriCAN'T-American women cleaning my multiple mansions and fifty foot yacht for $3/hour. Now I have crews of little brown taco headed mexcun beaners working hard for $2/hour on all my many lawns, keeping them looking like golf course greens. Now I do all my gambling at Indian reservations where crews of the drunken red man wait on me hand and foot for $1 tips. Now I buy millions of dollars worth of Chinese made products each year... and I brag about buying nothing but GM made Cadillac's and Trucks, but everyone knows that 99.999% of all their parts are made by 50 cent/hour socialist yellow belly Chinese slave labor. And in the end, with the help of FOX News and the Republican Party, this white man is laughing all the way to the bank! Vote Romoney & Ryan in November, or else obamma will make you white people his slave.

Us hard white working Republican Teabagging taxpayers are sick of those 47% "un-Amercians" who pay ZERO taxes, and force us hard working white taxpayers to pay for their free government obama provided food stamps, and free government provided obama housing, and their free government provided obamacare health insurance.

WE ARE SICK OF IT!!!

These 47% "un-Amercians" are blacks and white trash rednecks living off obamas government provide welfare. The evil socialist "born in Kenya" muslim balack hussein obama is buying votes with our hard earned taxpayer money.

IT MUST END!!!

MITT ROMONEY IS EXACTLY WHAT'S WRONG WITH AMERICA. HE IS SURROUNDED BY PEOPLE LIKE HIMSELF WHO MAKE THEIR MILLIONS SELLING AMERICAN JOBS TO THE SOCIALIST LEADERS OF CHINA. THAT MAKES THEM ALL SOCIALIST! ARE YOU PEOPLE BLIND TO ALL OF THIS?

HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM AN ARTICLE IN THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR REPORTING ABOUT HIS BUSINESS PARTNER AND GOOD FAMILY FRIEND MARC LEDER, WHO HELD THAT $50,000 PER PLATE FUNDRAISING DINER WHERE ROMONEY MADE HIS 47% OF POOR AMERICANS SUCK SPEECH:

"It was as if the Playboy Mansion met Bane Capitalist at a wild sex party at private-equity titan Marc Leder's multi-million dollar Bridgehampton estate, where wealthy guests cavorted nude in and around the Olympic sized pool performing sex acts including oral and anal sodomy, topless Russian women pole dancing on spotlit elevated platforms, and well endowed black men lit their "glans" like they were torches, butt dancing and swinging their thick large mushroom headed penises to live booming hiphop gangsta thug music by Atlanta's 1500 Brick Squad rapers Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman, Wooh Da Kid, Slim Dunkin, and Fellhouse Pig. The divorced and highly perverted Bane Capitalist / Sun Capital Partner honcho rented a sprawling beachfront mansion on Surf Side Road for $500,000 per month for the summer. Leder's weekly Friday and Saturday night parties have become the talk of the Hamptons—and he ended them in style last weekend with his wildest poon bash yet. The revelry hit a frenzied point at midnight when a black male guest described as a "famous pornstar" and a "tanned" female guest, rumored to both being 14" pornographic film star Lexington Steel and one of the Kardashian sisters, stripped naked and performed an impromptu and extremely violent hour long sex show for the cheering guest.

ARE THESE THE KIND OF LEADERS US CHRISTIAN AMERICAN WANT?
YOU DECIDE THIS COMING NOVEMBER!

THESE ARE THE FACTS:
When Mitt Romoney used Bane Capitalist investors money to purchase all those companies, his intentions were to "sell" their "worthy" assets (patents, equipment) to other "shell" Bane Capitalist corporations "located" in China, India, and Mexico. Afterwards the remaining companies went bankrupt, and the employee invested pension funds were used to payoff the vendors, loans, and mortgages. Employees got one dime for each dollar they had invested in the companies they worked for. In a ten year period, Mitt Romoney personally amassed over $250 million from his original $10k investment. Because he keeps his $250 million hidden in secret offshore tax free bank accounts, he pays ZERO taxes on his $250 million.

THIS IS WHAT SHOULD BE DONE:
Every person (or their remaining families) that worked for any company that Mitt Romoney's Bane Capitalist bought, split, sold, bankrupted, and profited from should form a class action lawsuit and sue Mitt Romoney and his Bane Capitalist for every dime him and his family has. They deserve to share the profits from "their" jobs which Mitt Romoney and Bane Capitalist "stole & sold" to China, India, and Mexico. This would be the fair thing to do, since Mitt Romoney has actually never ever did any real work in his whole sorry freakish Mormon life.

SINCE THIS LAWSUIT WILL PROBABLY NEVER BE DONE, THE BEST WE CAN DO AT THIS MOMENT IS TO REPLACE MITT ROMONEY WITH GOVERNOR JEB BUSH SO WE CAN HAVE A REAL LEADER IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
