He's hiding something. He an Ann admitted as much. Do like everyone else Mitt....do like you demanded or Ryan....do like you did when you wanted McCain to pick you for VP.

Release your returns. Be transparent.

You stood next to Trump, who demanded Birth Certificates, College grads, HS Transcripts.

And you think asking to release tax returns, like every candidate since your Dad, is asking for too much?

Please ignore the Amnesty program I took part in when U.S. allowed those who illegally hid US made income in foreign nation accounts.

It was a felony until I took advantage of Amnesty program.

So I'm not crook.

I hope I can still tell you how honest I am. I never lied about my taxes....like I did in Mass during Gov run. Please trust me now....you sheep.

Whirlpool continues to cut the workforce at its facility in Evansville, Indiana, as the appliance maker shifts all refrigeration product development to Michigan, its home base. Whirlpool currently employs 217 people at its Evansville development center, down drastically from the nearly 10,000 employed at the facility in the 1970s. The center will close down completely by the end of 2014.

In Arkansas, Hawker Beechcraft will lay off 170 employees at its Little Rock aircraft finishing plant. The hourly and salaried workers were given 60 days notice on August 2 of their impending layoffs. Demand for business jets has declined in the recessionary economy. Hawker Beechcraft filed for bankruptcy protection in May and agreed in July to sell the company to a Chinese firm for $1.8 billion.

Our Divisive President

Barack Obama promised a new era of post-partisanship. In office, he's played racial politics and further split the country along class and party lines.

By PATRICK H. CADDELL
DOUGLAS E. SCHOEN

During the election campaign, Barack Obama sought to appeal to the best instincts of the electorate, to a post-partisan sentiment that he said would reinvigorate our democracy. He ran on a platform of reconciliation—of getting beyond "old labels" of right and left, red and blue states, and forging compromises based on shared values.

President Obama's Inaugural was a hopeful day, with an estimated 1.8 million people on the National Mall celebrating the election of America's first African-American president. The level of enthusiasm, the anticipation and the promise of something better could not have been more palpable.

And yet, it has not been realized. Not at all.

Rather than being a unifier, Mr. Obama has divided America on the basis of race, class and partisanship. Moreover, his cynical approach to governance has encouraged his allies to pursue a similar strategy of racially divisive politics on his behalf.

Obamafilth



The first hint that as president Mr. Obama would be willing to interject race into the political dialogue came last July, when he jumped to conclusions about the confrontation between Harvard Prof. Henry Louis "Skip" Gates and the Cambridge police.

During a press conference, the president said that the "Cambridge police acted stupidly," and he went on to link the arrest with the "long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately."

In truth, the Gates incident appears to have had nothing to do with race—a Cambridge review committee that investigated the incident ruled on June 30 that there was fault on both sides.

Sen. Jon Kyl (R., Ariz.) has said the president told him in a closed-door meeting that he would not move to secure the border with Mexico unless and until Congress reached a breakthrough on comprehensive immigration reform. That's another indication Mr. Obama is willing to continue to play politics with hot-button issues.

Add in the lawsuit against the Arizona immigration law and it's clear the Obama administration is willing to run the risk of dividing the American people along racial and ethnic lines to mobilize its supporters—particularly Hispanic voters, whose backing it needs in the fall midterm elections and beyond.

As the Washington Post reported last week, two top White House strategists, speaking on condition of anonymity, have indicated that "the White House plans to use the immigration debate to punish the GOP and aggressively seek the Latino vote in 2012."

Wall Street Obama ignores the Law


On an issue that has gotten much less attention, but is potentially just as divisive, the Justice Department has pointedly refused to prosecute three members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation at the polls on Election Day 2008.
More

It is the job of the Department of Justice to protect all American voters from voter discrimination and voter intimidation—whether committed by the far right, the far left, or the New Black Panthers. It is unacceptable for the Department of Justice to continue to stonewall on this issue.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Mr. Obama's campaign emphasized repeatedly that his minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, was being unfairly stereotyped because of racially incendiary sound bites that allegedly did not reflect the totality of his views. In the Gates incident and others, Mr. Obama has resorted to similar forms of stereotyping.

Even the former head of the Civil Rights Commission, Mary Frances Berry, acknowledged that the Obama administration has taken to polarizing America around the issue of race as a means of diverting attention away from other issues, saying: "the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats.... Having one's opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness."

Pure Filth!

The president had a unique opportunity to focus on overarching issues of importance to whites and blacks. He has failed to address the critical challenges. He has not used his bully pulpit to emphasize the importance of racial unity and the common interest of poor whites and blacks who need training, job opportunities, and the possibility of realizing the American Dream. He hasn't done enough to address youth unemployment—which in the white community is 23.2% and in the black community is 39.9%.

Mr. Obama has also cynically divided the country on class lines. He has taken to playing the populist card time and time again. He bashes Wall Street and insurance companies whenever convenient to advance his programs, yet he has been eager to accept campaign contributions and negotiate with these very same banks and corporations behind closed doors in order to advance his political agenda.

When the stock market collapsed in 2008, the wealthiest investors fared worse than everyone else.

The “ultra-rich”—those with fortunes of more than $30 million—fared worst of all, losing on average about 25 percent of their net worth.

“There was really nowhere to hide as an investor in 2008,” Merrill Lynch’s president of global wealth management pointed out in 2009.“No region ended the year unscathed.”

As a member of the ultra-rich, Romney probably wasn’t spared major losses.

And it’s possible he suffered a large enough capital loss that, carried forward and coupled with his various offshore tax havens, he wound up paying no U.S. federal taxes at all in 2009.

If true, this would be politically deadly for him.

He knows this, and will instead endure even Repubs asking him do what everyone else does

If Romney's hidden offshore wealth shows that he also hid income from Mormon Church when calculating %10, his standing in the Church would be hurt.

His comments about truly giving 10% to the Mormon Church would be an intention lie.

Romney has so many reasons to hide his taxes, and not do what every candidate since his dad has done.

Obama KILLS JOBS yet tries distracting from HIS Record!

In Lafayette, Indiana, Caterpillar will cut 167 jobs beginning in September. The Lafayette Engine Center produces medium-speed engines for the world’s largest maker of construction and mining equipment. The company is a major employer in the region, with more than 1,600 workers in the county.

The job cuts will hit agency workers and part-time and temporary workers. Like a growing number of companies, Caterpillar utilizes a large number of contract, temporary and part-time workers, enabling it to slash its workforce at will and cut costs on benefits. News of the job cuts follows an announcement of record profits of $1.7 billion at Caterpillar for the second quarter, a 67 percent increase over the previous year.
