Why is Mitt Romney Hiding the Rest of His Tax Returns? (New Obama Video)
YouTube.com ^

Posted on 07/10/2012 10:09:53 AM PDT by tsowellfan

Obama Campaign:

Mitt Romney is defying calls to release more than one year's worth of tax returns. The Romney campaign response?

"Just take our word for it."

So why is Mitt Romney hiding the rest of his tax returns?

How long can Romney keep information on his investments in overseas tax havens secret? And why did he do it in the first place?

Time will tell.

Why is Obama hiding everything he ever did in his life?

The only thing transparent in this guy is the light that passes through his ears.

Why is Obama hiding his complete history? Pot meet kettle. When Zero lets the people see everything he’s locked up tight, then I’ll worry about Romney’s tax returns.

Romney: “Here’s a question. Why hasn’t BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, aks Barry Soetoro, Harrison J. Bounell, released ANY of the details of his life other than in the two books which it has been shown to be largely lies?”

Romney should produce a video in answer to Obama’s and ask the same questions. “I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours.”

Romney should parry by releasing his college transcripts and then ask Obama to do the same.

I wonder, if Romney released some photo-shopped tax returns on the internet if that would work.

Any suggestions for the Romney campaign regarding this issue of transparency?

I want to think the obama campaign strategery of accusing Romney of hiding his past will come back to b.i.t.e. someone like obama.

Big. Time.

IF Romney’s people ACT on it. Time to get out those mormon long knives they used on Mitt’s primary opponents.

Perhaps this will slowly morph into the Birther issue and if it does and the media come approach Romney with a Birth Certificate question this should be his reply:

"Sometimes rumors can be hurtful. My promise to the American people is this. When I move into the White House the new attorney general will initiate a thorough and complete investigation in order to clarify to the American people that Barack Obama was indeed eligible and was the legitimate President of these United States. That's the fair thing to do not only for the American people but fair for President Obama and for his own legacy.

However, if by some chance the accusations turn out to be correct, there is a promise that anybody in Congress whether they be republican or democrat will be legally held accountable and justice will be served for any wrong doing and illegal activity. Let that be a warning to the leaders of Congress who have taken the oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America."

I hope Romney lets the pressure build as long as possible, and then releases his tax returns AND all his school records. That way, he can say, “Here you go, here's everything you could possibly want”, without even mentioning Obama’s unreleased school records.

I agree this strategy will backfire on Obama, but I believe ROmney et al are wise to keep their powder dry for now. Having Romney release his tax returns AND all his school records should happen the week after Labor Day, otherwise there's too much time for a storm about Obama’s missing documents to blow over.

You make a good point! Sort of like some suspect Obama was trying to do by not releasing his BC. Let the BC issue be the only issue the republicans run on until the weekend before the election then release a legitimate and legal birth certificate only to leave the republicans without any other issue.

I DO feel, however, that Romney supporters and surrogates such as Donald Trump and Sheriff Joe (though I'm not sure whether or not he's a Romney supporter) should continue to harp on Obama's missing birth certificate.

I'm still on the fence as to whether Romney himself should run with the BC issue (for the stated reason above)and I tend to lean towards not running with it.

The response is the same as last time.

Obama wants you to be more concerned with what Mitt did with his money then Obama has done with ours.

I replied to your comment above. You make some good points. But what we want to avoid is for the Obama campaign to define Romney for the American people which is most likely what they are trying to do. If the Romney campaign "keeps the powder dry" for too long Obama will succeed in defining Romney as the most "secretive republican since Richard Nixon".

Some political experts have said that if Romney does not respond to these accusations the Obama team may succeed at defining Romney as such by late August or September.

That's quite close to election day, if you ask me.

I have an idea. Take the gloves off!

Are those your words or is this a response from the Romney campaign?

If it's from the Romney campaign it's a good one. If it's from you he needs to hire you. :)

Obama is a consummate demagogue. He will continue to smear. He will continue to seek to inspire & exploit human envy. He will continue to blame anyone who believes in the American tradition, for all the woes of those with too little sense to understand that they are being played by that consummate demagogue.

Can anyone imagine George Washington, or Thomas Jefferson, or James Madison submitting to a political foe's efforts to pry into their personal finances? (Washington in his youth was not only a model of gentlemanly behavior. He was the uncrowned bare knuckle boxing champion of the colonies--as well as the finest horseman of the era. Contemporary demagogues would have thought twice before insulting him.)

But to return to Obama, whose daily behavior is an ongoing insult to an office once defined by the conduct of the noble Washington. You cannot really understand Obama, unless you understand the Blame & Envy Cocktail. Obama will never measure up to a Washington or Jefferson, but he has a lot in common with some other famous people. Examples, Robespierre, Lenin, Hitler, Castro, etc.. Stirring up & exploiting jealousy & envy has brought more than one demagogue to great power.

Tit for tat. You release all your hidden records—especially the one’s you sealed up by Executive Order, and we release the tax returns. Simple, huh?

Saw this on a social network site... “Apparently, I’m supposed to be more angry about what Mitt Romney does with his money than what Barack Obama does with mine.”

I hope Mr. Romney responds to the inevitable media venom with the following: “Sure, I’d be happy to disclose all relevant information...as soon as obama releases all of his. Unless and until that happens, all you ^*^#%$%* can stick it where the sun don’t shine.

It seems that the socialist democratic party would like to make being an entrepreneur and making money a crime in this Country - typical commie ideals! These are just the traits we need to dig us out of the financial hole that the kenyan has dug for our grandchildren!

I think ROmney should say nothing about the BC issue. The rest of us can carry that water, while ROmney focuses on the economy, etc.

I tend to agree with that. If Romney (like Sen. McCain was) an elected official I would look at it differently but Romney is not. I think the questions about Obama's eligibility should be directed at John Boehner and those already in power.
