Thank you, moron, for EXACTLY making my point for me, again!
So, explain to us, EXACTLY what will Romney's tax returns tell you liberals? That Romney made money? That he was employed by Bain Capital?
Oh! Oh! Oh! He single-handedly off-shored American jobs! That's it!
Kind of like what GE is doing this VERY MOMENT under Obama?
Your partisan blindness and stupidity make it fun to watch you post!
Don't know what it will show.. Why won't he show them? If he is so above board what is he hiding? His own father gave 12 years of returns and records when he ran..

I agree! He should show them!

But then you must agree, that Obama should live up to his transparency LIE, um, promise and open up ALL his records!

I mean, as a liberal, surely you believe "fair is fair", right?

Sure... He has been President for quite some time now so I am not sure what that would prove but ok.. Fair is fair. But then Bush should allow the minutes for Dick Cheney's meeting with the energy kings to become public too.. I mean fair IS fair...

So you feel the same way about Eric Holder and the Fast and Furious information he has withheld?

With Obama BREAKING HIS PROMISE of using Executive Privilege to shield him and other DoJ minions?

Can we get back the millions of dollars and the time our Congress has spent over the more-than-a-year back on this investigation?

Or was that '(tax) money well spent' when Holder could have turned the documents over on day one?

Can you envision Obama choking on the word "transparency"?

Lost in the 24/7 news cycle has been a July 31, 2010 opinion-editorial by David Stockman, former director of the Office of Management and Budget under President Ronald Reagan. Stockman was closely tied to the development of the Reaganomics ideology, but now he points to massive failures by Republicans, while they were in power, to assure that financial accounts were balanced in government, international trade, on the ledgers of central banks and in the affairs of private businesses and households. Stockman excoriates modern Republicans, and particularly Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, for claiming the party's current economic doctrines are rooted in traditional GOP financial philosophy. He points to a list of misguided Republican actions that have led the country to economic disaster: the runaway growth of public debt resulting "not from big spending by the Democrats, but instead the Republican Party's embrace ... of the insidious doctrine that deficits don't matter if they result from tax cuts," the neocon's sky-high inflation of the military budget, the "warfare state," the removal of traditional restrictions on leverage and speculation by the financial sector which led to a "vast, unproductive expansion of our financial sector," and the steady sending of jobs and production offshore. Stockman charges that Republicans have strayed so far from their ideological roots that they have "made a mockery of party ideals" and led the country into adopting policies that crippled the economy.

Take a hike Scrooge. You again are making claims that are wildly out of proportion with reality. Public subsidies of all kinds exist because they benefit the public at large. Every international airport in the Country exist because of subsidies. The highways you drive on are also. You don't want busses subsidized because you don't have to ride on one. But the fact is that those subways, busses, and trolleys are what enabled our cities to grow. The problem with the cities right now is there is not enough jobs. The infrastructure of a city is not just it’s transport system. People, the work force, is a city’s most important component the reason it exists. Everything else is to make the workforce more competitive. You want the glitter but you don’t want to pay for the chrome so you sneer at the guy who has to work in that stink ass chrome shop. But since you have never been in a chrome shop you probably have no idea what I am talking about.

Dude, how long can you blame Bush?
Obama had 2 years of full democrat rule to turn things around. He chose to waste it on Obamacare, and bills full if riders and addendums that forced filibusters to save America.
Obama has lied, flip flopped, and bowed to other countries.
And before Ronald Reagan, did you forget Jimmy Carter? Or, were you around then?
How long can you blame Bush? Bush crashed the economy. He is to blame for it. That is forever. It is called historical fact. The only time historical facts seem to change is when the Rat Wing starts writing them. I am trying to figure out how Romney is going to give us the Clinton economy by continuing all the Bush policies with seems to be his latest line of convoluted rhetoric.
