Biden faults Romney for not releasing tax returns

LAS VEGAS — Vice President Joe Biden denounced Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney on Tuesday as a candidate with something to hide.

Biden, campaigning for President Barack Obama in the battleground of Nevada, told Hispanic leaders that Romney doesn't live up to the openness that his father represented when he ran for president 44 years ago. The vice president said Romney's father, George Romney, released 12 years of tax returns when he unsuccessfully sought the Republican nomination in 1968.

In excerpts of Biden's remarks released by the Obama campaign, Biden told the annual conference of the national Council of La Raza that Romney has released only one year of his tax returns, adding: "Making a lie of the old adage: Like father, like son."

How these fools can stand in front of people and push this, while 0bummer conceals everything but his Muslim faith, taps against the outer limits of my capacity for disbelief.

Romney’s spokesperson should just state that Ronmeny would be willing to release those returns when Nobama releases his college transcripts....

Romney should say: “I’ll open my books as soon as President Obama proves to the American people that he opened his when he was in college.”

How he can stand up in front of a bunch of Raza-ists and spout irrelevancies is appalling. They shouldn’t make the morally handicapped stand for so long.

Exactly! They need to challenge 0bummer to a little a little show me yours, I’ll show you mine. Never happen though.

1. Big Lie technique. 2. Projection (psychiatric term) is where a person claims his own problems are really the fault of others. 3. Diversion strategy (what crooked politicians resort to in order to shift public attention away from their miserable records in public office — such as bHusseinO’s Great Recession and the disappearance/destruction of millions of jobs in the last 3 yrs.

They are baiting Romney camp into demanding open records on obama’s citizenship credentials, passport, selective service, social security, Occidental College, Columbia U., Harvard records, and how he fared, how it was all paid for, etc.
As soon as he does some facsimile of that, they will then go into the secrecy of the Mormon Church — the ace up their sleeve (or some such place). That (IMHO) is the end game here. The “who’s got the most damning secret” angle.

Those techniques work, too, when the media act as a Greek chorus, repeating and amplifying every lie.

My bet is the ace is up the other place.

Hey Biden.
Where are the jobs?
Where is America’s triple A rating?
Why are you increasing the National Debt?
Why are you attack Christians and Christianity?
Why are you destroying the US Military?

Those re the questions voters are asking. Not where Romneys tax returns are...

He was talking to La Raza. They are not axing any of those excellent questions.

The better and more effective strategy, is for the Romney campaign to go over a list of every personal document that Obama has refused to release, and release Romney's equivalents.

Call 'em on their bluff, and dare them to reciprocate. It won't happen, because Barry doesn't dare release his records to the public. Romney could then pound him mercilessly for failing to do so, and shame him into oblivion.

THe neo-progs are like sleeper cells. They keep pushing to see how far they can take it.
Almost everything they say is utter nonsense.
Any truth is so tangled up in lies that I’m not sure they even know what the hell they are talking about.

Joe Biden must be some kind of “taxer” conspiracist.

As a Vice President, Joe Biden makes a great minesweeper. He finds all the landmines that his side shouldn’t be talking about and then sets them off in the crudest fashion possible. Yet the Media takes no notice...

Obama is reducing the US nuclear arsenal to 300 in a world with 20,000 nukes.

Someone should ask Obama where is the US’s capacity to “return fire” (even though Obama has already said he will refuse to return fire if the US receives a nuclear detonation). There WILL be future presidents after The One.

Biden? Wanting to talk about TAX RETURNS???

The same Joe Biden who lives in our house, flies around in our planes, rides in our cars, lecturing us about the subject of generosity while giving a measly 0.3% to charity according to HIS tax returns???
