"I think what's important if you're running for president that the American people know who you are, what you've done and that you're an open book," Obama said Monday in a television interview.

Holy Cow! This coming from a man whose whole life is a sealed record??

Swiss bank accounts, Bermuda shell corporations and outsourcing his wealth around tax laws… why would you think he has “something to hide”?

HE HAS A LOT TO HIDE!

But it won’t stay hidden for long… this line of attack is devastating his campaign and it has him on the defensive. The Obama campaign has probably already seen what’s in it (as did the 2008 McCain campaign) and it is a matter of time before someone leaks that out… LOL, I can’t wait.

Another Obamabot taking up the diversion talking points.

No surprise.

Gotta keep people away from discussing jobs and the economy, right?

Allow me to preemptively respond to the standard Obamabot excuses...

--Given that Obama’s key economic promises haven’t been kept, what possible excuse can the president offer? Easy. The president’s explanation goes something like this: By the time he took office, the economic situation was far worse than anyone, including Obama, imagined. The deficit was far larger than anyone predicted. The president therefore can’t be held accountable for his failed promises. He was operating on a false set of assumptions. The crisis was much deeper than he knew when he made those promises.“We didn’t know how bad it was,” is how Obama put it last year.

Here’s the problem: If you go back and examine the record, you’ll find that Obama was fully aware of the depth and severity of the recession. As a candidate, for example, he said we were facing “the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.” As president-elect, Obama said we faced “a crisis unlike any we have seen in our lifetime.”

Prior to being sworn in, Obama knew—in fact, he went out of his way to warn us—that we were shedding more than half a million jobs per month, the worst job loss in over three decades. That in 2008 we had lost more jobs than in any year since the Great Depression. That manufacturing had hit a 28-year low. That the stock market had fallen almost 40 percent in less than a year. That credit markets were nearly frozen. That businesses large and small couldn’t borrow the money they needed to meet payroll and create jobs. That home foreclosures were mounting. That credit card and auto loan delinquencies were rising. That the economy was “in a global crisis.” And that he was inheriting an “enormous budget deficit—you know, some estimates over a trillion dollars. That’s before we do anything.”

In other words, Barack Obama knew full well how bad things were when he promised he’d cut the deficit in half, when his economic team said that if his stimulus package passed, unemployment would not rise above 8 percent, and much of the rest.

What this means, then, is that Barack Obama’s only excuse for his failures is a myth and a mirage—a manufactured, after-the-fact effort to escape accountability for his own words, his own commitments, and his own failings.

I don't care about Mitt's personal fortune. He has done nothing ILlegal.

This is ANOTHER 'change the narrative' story.

It's about the ECONOMY.

It's about JOBS.

It's about HOUSING.

It's about DEBT.

It's about the USA not depending on foreign energy.

WE NEED A COMPETENT BUSINESSMAN, who has NO dirty laundry (don't forget about Obama's self described "bone-headed" mistake in dealing with incarcerated Tony REZKO and the sweet land deal that went down between the two.

OBAMA'S Sweet deal:
BONEHEADED MISTAKE:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...

ELECT ONLY REPUBLICANS TO COUNTERACT WHAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE WROUGHT IN THIS COUNTRY.

THERE IS NO UNITY.

MITT WILL UNITE AMERICA.

OBAMA=WIL CONTINUE TO DIVIDE.

Soon as Romney figures out a way to deal with the fact that his overseas accounts help create millions of jobs in foreign countries he will disclose his offshore accounts.

Your comment may backfire. Obama has had his schooling, birth records, Michells term papers, concealed and you want to know how Mitt made his money. He worked for it - he did not get a foreign student loan from America to go to college - ask Obama about that one. Obama has LIED about Bain - Mitt was gone from Bain for 2 years before it folded. FACT CHECK has run a story on this one.

“i hope we can change this!”

I can't talk about jobs and the economy. The economy is doing well for the 1%. Sorry 'bout your luck.

As far as jobs go (see what I did there) I don't create jobs nor will my administration.

I want to lower taxes for the richest 1%.

I want to send more American jobs overseas.

I want the wealthy to have as many tax-loopholes afforded to them as possible.

Please vote for me!

Well they definitely are to the millions of foreigners who his finances help get jobs.

The rest of us just want a decent count of how many offshore jobs Mitt is helping to create.

Hell, My investments probably help create a couple of jobs in China. Just about anyone who invests creates foreign jobs, hard to avoid, but Mitt is the champion, King, all time leader in connections to outsourcing and helping to create offshore jobs in places like China and India.

I'd bet Obama helps create at least a hundred foreign jobs with his investments. But Mitt helps create millions of jobs in foreign countries. Very significant compared to me and Obama whose foreign job creation is like a piss in the ocean.
