Taxes? Romney's only opposition in Obama. Boy, these leftists are really getting desparate.

I doubt that rational, fair minded American democratic voters will support a known divisive socialist failure over some one new. It is beyond Time for a CHANGE.
November can't come soon enough.

Romney sticks foot up jackass: Harry Reid needs to 'put up or shut up' on my taxes


By Justin Sink and Emily Goodin
08/02/12

Mitt Romney on Thursday said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) needs to “put up or shut up” when it comes to charges the presumptive GOP nominee did not pay his taxes.

Romney also accused the White House of being behind the allegation.

“It’s time for Harry to put up or shut up,” Romney said on Sean Hannity’s radio show.“Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with because that’s totally and completely wrong. It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate. It’s wrong. So I’m looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources and we’ll probably find out it’s the White House.”

After Romney made his remarks, Reid released a statementby his original allegations, saying it is “clear Romney is hiding something.”

“People who make as much money as Mitt Romney have many tricks at their disposal to avoid paying taxes. We already know that Romney has exploited many of these loopholes, stashing his money in secret, overseas accounts in places like Switzerland and the Cayman Islands,” he said late Thursday.

“When it comes to answering the legitimate questions the American people have about whether he avoided paying his fair share in taxes or why he opened a Swiss bank account, Romney has shut up. But as a presidential candidate, it’s his obligation to put up, and release several years’ worth of tax returns just like nominees of both parties have done for decades,” he added.

Reid concluded:“There is only one thing he can do to clear this up, and that’s release his tax returns.”

The Senate Democratic leader, who has played an attack dog role for President Obama in the past, said earlier this week a Bain Capital investor called his office to tell him that Romney had avoided paying income taxes.

Reid said the investor told him:“Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years,” according to the Huffington Post.

He doubled down on his remarks on Thursday, taking to the Senate floor to repeat his allegations.


Romney, in speaking to Hannity, turned the conversation back to the economy, which has been his major campaign talking point.

“The Obama campaign is going to do everything in its power to talk about anything but the president’s record,” he said, adding “so they put all this baloney out there and people can smell it for what it is and it’s not a pretty smell.”

The Daily Caller first reported Romney’s remarks.

Dem Rep. Waxman criticizes White House for lack of transparency


By Sterling C. Beard
08/02/12

The Obama administration has come under fire from Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) amid accusations that the White House failed to live up to its own ethical standards.

"The Presidential Records Act was enacted to ensure that White House records are preserved for history and are owned by the American people," Waxman said. "Everyone who is covered by the law should follow it, regardless of which party controls the White House."

Republican members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee issued a report two days ago that detailed members of the Obama White House using personal email accounts to conduct official business with representatives of the pharmaceutical industry. The report also listed occasions where the same officials met outside of the White House, apparently at a Caribou Coffee, ensuring the meetings would not be recorded in official visitor logs. One official named in the report is Jim Messina, a former deputy chief of staff, now the Obama campaign manager.

Many Democrats and interest groups that had been critical of the Bush administration’s transparency were unwilling to comment. Sen. Patrick Leahy’s (D-Vt.) office did not respond to a request for comment according to The Huffington Post, nor did Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

The Republican National Committee circulated the Huffington Post piece to reporters.

Waxman had demanded that Bush administration aides preserve emails when it was discovered during an investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys that as many as 22 million Bush administration emails may have been deleted.

The Romney campaign took advantage of the situation, echoing an Obama attack on Mitt Romney’s taxes that implied the candidate might have committed a crime.

"This appears to be a violation of the law, which requires that all official communications be preserved," Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstom said on a conference call with reporters Thursday.


Obama is PURE FILTH!

RMoney showed 20+ years of tax returns to McCain - was that the reason he was not picked for VP?

Attention inability!!! Fruitcake, there are no standards left for president especially since pathetic fools like you made a self-serving deranged marxist POTUS.
Who the fuk do you think you are? Some pompus loan shark who decides who gets to do what, when and where? When compared to that sleazebag chicago fecal matter that dropped from bill ayers' butt Mitt Romney is light years ahead of b. h. obama, douchebagger.
If Romney showed McCain his returns that's his business just like it's his business between himself and the IRS. By your own words the IRS had 20+ years to make an issue and there are none to be had...are there? Are you calling the IRS liars? Are you saying they cannot do their job? How about let's take a look at all your paperwork fruitcake and see if you belong in jail...better yet, GFY.

Romney’s overseas disaster coupled with this scandal over his refusal to release his taxes has devastated his pathetic campaign and candidacy. And what’s worse is that every week there will be something new to hit Romney with just like Harry Reid just did with his source. Romney’s tax returns will be leaked; it’s just a matter of time… but this is nothing compared to what they really have on him, LOL – I love it.

President Obama is just sitting back with a big smile on his face knowing that he has the best luck with pathetically weak opponents to challenge him over the years. First McCain and now RINO Mitt Romney.

Just look at the latest polls… especially in the Battleground states.

*When a phone call is the information you have,

wouldn't know the truth and doesn't care.
Times Reid and Pelosi have showed their taxes,
"O"! A country that shows us daily that we
no longer have the truth in us. By the looks
of these libs, "a lie works better than the truth",
and they will live and stand by it... Shame on you

RMoney? Obviously some people have a problem with others doing well. And the leaders of these jealous lowlifes are? b. h. obama and the democRat Party. Yes indeed those TAX hungry slugs want to justify theft based on an individual's net worth. If you make money then obama and his useful idiots want it. Problem is the only people who gets the goods are b. h. obama and the democRat Party, useful idiots don't even get the scraps. However useful idiots can find solace in their days spent expecting wealth to arrive at any second. After all, the images of cars, clothes, travel, food that were placed between their ears by b. h. obama were a form of enjoyment by imagination. Useful idiots stood behind b. h. obama while he went after those with too much and just like winning the presidency in 2008 b. h. obama got his pot of gold and useful idiots got nothing, nada. Perhaps they can enjoy watching b. h. obama and his family live the good life and imagine themselves there...It’s an obamanation.

Attention moron cow patty!!! Actually Romney's trip was successful unless of course you're a dirty diaper democRat hauling around a load of libelous poop. Furthermore you TAX hungry twit, I can only imagine the uproar of finding a one penny discrepancy amongst the tens of thousands of pages that comprise Romney's returns...which is a very good reason for him not to release his returns to a bunch of vultures.
As for your poll excitement they are like the excitement you had for Wisconsin and you know how that one turned out. You have to remember...the election in November will be decided by the American people and not by a lone individual on the USSC. Poll or no poll the facts as they are today say the self-serving b. h. obama is about as popular as a turd in a punch bowl.
