RIGHT, neither were Al Capone's! We need a 'don't ask, don't tell' policy for the income of public officials, and those who would be public officials. After all they are not paid like corporate execs so they need to be able to supplement their income. RIGHT?

We also need a "don't ask, don't tell" on foreign aid for schooling for Obama, for lock down term papers, for hiding paperwork on fast and furious, Rev Wright and the list goes on and on. The problem here is Obama had money flowing in for 2008 but he has messed up so bad he does not have the dollars that Mitt has raked in and the competition is tough since Obama has accomplished NOTHING.

110% Spot on! Imagine having the chutzpah to say this! Only the mentality of a "Community Organizer" would try this. Anything to divert your attention away from his failed economics.

It is so clear that Romney is solely interested in gaming the system for himself and his peers. His policies are not driven by what's in the nations best interest. It would be ruinous to the country to put him in the white house.

He could not be worse than Obama - who is now the worst President America has ever had. Obama wass not qualified for that position. He was a senator that voted "PRESENT" more times than any other and he traveled all over the world playing rock star and kissing up to the foreign nationals. He still is kissing up to them - his over heard comment "wait until I get re=elected then I have more power to take care of this". He by-passed congress on the act of war he took upon himself - guess he is not smart enough to know even if you do not put down ground troops - its still class as a war. This idea that you are trying to push that Mitt only thinks of himself - is the liberal bullsheet. Obama has spent billions and has a staff that triples any other president.

What is Romney the "Outsourcer In Chief" hiding in foreign banks and businesses? We can not have a President with this much mistrust.

We already have a president with that much mistrust in office. Its not Romney that has outsourced its Obama. Obama has spead the lies and the libs swallowed it all up. The facts are that Mitt was gone from Bain for over two years but the libs are not smart enough to do research for them selves - they depend on a lier to tell them what to think.

Can not trust Romney the "Outsourcer In Chief" and all his foreign businesses and banking deals. Romney is more of a anti-american than american.

Romney was kicked out of office as governor after only one term he was so bad. Romney would be devastating to the working middle class.

i guess romney could just lie about his finances. after all, that is OK according to the standard set by the POTUS. his autobiography is pure fiction. and this was verified by a supporter who went back and checked out all of his literary "fabrications". what a joke

obama has no reason in the world to use this kind of tactic. He has amazing, ground breaking accomplishments to his credit. obamacare, dodd-frank, stunning victory in Iraq, economy moving at the speed of light.

obama is above this kind of thing -- he's god-like.

Yes! And Romney isn't hiding anything, It's all on tax form for all to see. And the days of being able to hide money in the Caymen Islands or Switzerland are long gone. Try it yourself and see what happens. I tried it about ten years ago in Bermuda and I couldn't get to first base. They have rules about that sort of thing you know!

In the news today: obama says his biggest mistake: "the mistake of my first term - couple of years - was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right."

There's more.....

Remember the constant refrain from Obama Bin Lyin'-- "Boosh did it?"

Don't just skim over this, read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out.

The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd, 2009, it was actually January 3rd, 2007 the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.

The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995.

For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this:

January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At the time:

The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%.

The Unemployment rate was 4.6%. George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH.

Remember the day...January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES!

Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES!

Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy. And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA

And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress. So when someone tries to blame Bush.

REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!"

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 &2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009.

If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

Once upon a time -- when the media followed the precepts that was intended to ferret out the truth, good, bad or indifferent, and when both government and the media were HELD to a higher standard -- this post would've been moot.....
