Skip to comments.President Vows to “Hammer Away at Key Issue of Campaign”
Posted on 09/01/2012 8:35:28 AM PDT by John Semmens
President Obama renewed his assault on what he contends is the key issue of this campaign: transparency.
People need to know who theyre voting for, a candidates life shouldnt be a mystery, the president said. For months, Governor Romney has been ducking the question of how much hes paid in taxes the last decade. How can he expect voters to elect him when hes withholding information vital to their decision?
If you want to be president of the United States your life needs to be an open book, Obama continued. Crucial chapters shouldnt be hidden from view. Attempts to divert voters attention from these matters by raising issues tangential to this core information should serve as a red flag warning that the truth might be too ugly for general consumption.
The president sought to contrast the secrecy of the Romney campaign with his own full disclosure. My tax records are open for voters inspection, Obama boasted. I challenge my opponent to do the same.
At the same time, President Obama rebuffed questions relating to his college transcripts, multiple Social Security numbers, and Selective Service records saying not only is this information irrelevant to the decision facing voters, but it would be illegal to release records that have been sealed by a presidential order.

This one should have a lot of bites. Thank you for all you do.
This is the most hypocritical statement ever heard, second only to the specter of congress being upset because somebody lied to them.
I think that Hussein will not speak in public, or anywhere else for that matter, unless he is wearing fire retardant pants .... and his secret service guys are all armed with pocket fire extinguishers.
1. Public breast feeding
2. Michelle’s fat kid campaign
3. How to lower my golf handicap
4. Anything but my record, of lack thereof
The Won is transparent - people can see right through him and his lies.
Too funny. Thanks for the ping John. Wouldn’t have wanted to miss this one.
Good stuff as always!
“When a man assumes a public trust he should consider himself a public property.”
How can we give someone out public trust without first having a knowledge of their private past?
Transparency; Illegal to release records that have been sealed by a presidential order.
I don't even know where to begin.
Start with the keywords. That may help.
Thanks for the ping!
(Zero had one of his low level bootlickers on Fox this morning with Neil Cavuto. This Obamabot proclaimed that everything is going so well and there has been 20-something months of job growth, and more new manufacturing jobs than anytime in our history under this administration. Surprisingly, this man’s pants did not spontaneously combust after his long rant of lies. Disappointingly, Cavuto did not dispute any of the ridiculous statements that man made.)
Obama is insane.
He IS ABSOLUTELY DELUSIONAL!It Terrifies Me That He Has The Nuclear Football!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He’s going to release Romney’s taxes “in the national interest.”
