Dirtbag Romney's tax deduction crappola would make the 47% he pisses on the 65% he pisses on.

Dirtbag Romney, the filthiest human on the planet aside from the other Republiscum garbage, is a walking LIE. He cannot talk but he LIES.

Romeny = LIAR. It is basic math which is way beyond what Dirtbag Romney provides his servile, sniveling, cowardly, racist supporters. All Dirtbag Romney provides is vaseline and an order to permanently bend over.

Stop posting you serf. Your orders are to report to GOPOX campaign HQ with your tub of lard and they were not necessarily talking about your spouse LOL.

Vaseline, lard...not much difference for your sniveling, servile schmoos.

BENDOVER Teabaggers

"So when Romney touts his business acumen, he's really bragging about his ability to take advantage of a tax code rigged by himself and others like him to skew the playing field in such a way that in reality poses very little personal risk to himself.

For example, another "loophole" in the Tax Code permitted Romney, as a private equity partner, to place virtually unlimited amounts into a tax-deferred IRA by allowing Romney and his partners to grossly underestimate the "value" of their contributions, because the Code only considers a partnership interest in terms of its "future value."

You and I (and ninety-nine percent of Americans who did not have the good fortune and connections to work for a private equity firm) are limited to deferring a few thousand dollars per year from taxes. Mitt Romney's IRA, according to Reich, approaches 100 million dollars.

The Tax Code also makes interest on debt tax-deductible, fostering a huge incentive to substitute debt for equity, leading to debt-fueled bets made by banks and financial institutions intent on "leveraging America to the hilt," and culminating in the economic catastrophe that the Bush Administration was forced to finally confront in 2008, and that we still find ourselves mired in today.

But for the banks, private equity firms, hedge funds and other financial institutions who brought on the crisis--and for Mitt Romney-- there was no catastrophe. Two-thirds of all income gains realized between the mid-1980's and 2007 were in the financial sector, showered on the people who made their livelihood playing with other people's money. People like the folks at Bain Capital, who structured their deals so they would always profit, even though some of the companies they funded ultimately collapsed under the weight of excessive debt.

And when the collapse ultimately occurred, the same people who had profited mightily from leveraging the rest of the country were given a massive bailout. The fact is that the economic crisis directly felt by nearly all "ordinary" Americans was never really felt by the people who caused it. That's the benefit of playing with other people's money." D

Oh my, my. The pitiful Obama supporters are "seeing the light" and are trying to blind themselves from the reaity of a big loss in November. Romney had a 5% bounce since the debate. Obama was not off his game last week, that was his game. He cannot debate. There is an 18% shift among women. Guess they better quickly promise them something besides birth control. The President has not served all American, just a select few. We need a President that will serve all our people.

Romney says he will cut all rates by 20%, balance the budget, and increase military spending but has no detailed plans on how he will accomplish it. What is Romney hiding?
