New Obama attack: Maybe Romney didnít pay taxes
WaPo ^

Posted on 07/17/2012 6:55:44 AM PDT by chessplayer

President Obama’s campaign is out with a new ad going hard after Mitt Romney to release his past tax returns.

The former Massachusetts governor has released his 2010 tax return and released an estimate of his 2011 taxes, with a pledge to release the full return. But he has resisted giving more information about his past taxes. Obama’s ad seizes on that fact, saying it “makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all. ”

You don’t think Obama doesn’t have Mitt’s tax returns?

Probably. And there's probably not a thing wrong with them.

Of course that wont matter as Obama's Chicago slime machine drip drip drip's innuendo from here to November.

We republicans always strain at gnats while democrats swallow camels and go back for seconds.

Hey, what about the tax cheat that Obama appointed Sec. of the Treasury...Tim Geithner. Don’t or didn’t the Clintons have off shore deposits? Romney must stay on the failure of the Obama bail outs, cronyism, and abuse of the United States Constitution plus his Communist fathers and mentors.

Maybe Obama diddles little boys. We can play that game, too.

Let’s talk about who is better prepared to accelerate a stalled economy.

And maybe obama isn’t American. And maybe obama didn’t go to Columbia. And maybe obama is using a fake social security number. And maybe obama engaged in a shady land deal with Tony Rezko for his mansion in Chicago.

This and the Bain attacks are working really well

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows Mitt Romney attracting 47% of the vote, while President Obama earns 44%. Four percent (4%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) more are undecided

LOL Interesting tactic. Many in Obama’s inner circle ended up having to pay back taxes before they could be named to their positions. We need to remind people of that, over and over and over, any time they try to bring this up.

IF Roamney is to be politically accountable for things he has done, said, written or filed in the past, then the Romney team should see to it that Obama is held to the same.

There are 2 Obama autobiographies from which to harvest items such as:
- The Choom Gang
- Cocaine use

That’s a good start.

"Maybe Obama didn't attend school ..."

it is a dangerous gambit the RATs take, even more so with a free and independent media. Oh, I guess it isn't so dangerous after all.

The Left went after W’s alleged drug use a heck of a lot more than the Right has gone after Obama’s admitted drug use.

"We republicans always strain at gnats while democrats swallow camels and go back for seconds."

Not during Primary season though. If Newt or the Ricks had the last name of Obama as well as the shaky past and they sealed up their paper trails, Romney's ads would be like:

"So Newt/Rick Obama has their school records sealed, why the secrecy? Did they apply for foreign aid and lie to the admissions board for favors? Why were his State Senate records sealed? Was he involved with schemes and portrayed himself as a would-be radical tyrant who goes against the mores of the United States? These are legitimate questions to ask from my Republican challenger and the people deciding who they will pick to represent our Party deserve an explanation and the records themselves..."

Many in Saint Obama’s administration are tax cheats who got caught. Saint Obama can hold that over their heads to get loyalty and compliance.

That’s exactly what I was thinking, Obama has Romney’s tax returns and knows that there is nothing in them, except a shocking amount of money being made.

I’m tired of Obama’s games. I read on Drudge that Obama is going use the new Batman movie to attack Romney. Romney needs to head him off with a series of ads, depicting Obama as the Joker. It should probably by done by a PAC, but an Obama clone in Joker make-up with that nasty grin, would be just what Romney needs.

Getting the ITRs on opponents did not work out well for Nixon so hopefully His Excellency ends up on that short end of the stick too.

Meanwhile, Matt Towery wrote an excellent article today. In it he said that Romney is running a poor campaign and has even distanced himself from those who could breath some fire into his campaign like Gingrich, Cain, Palen, etc.

No, Romnuts desides to run this vitural patrician campaign devoid of any conservative fire. Notice the last group mentioned as potential VP candidates: Jindal, Pawlenty and Portman....wow, watching paint dry is more interesting. Has McRomney decided to allow Palen into the convention yet? Probably not either.

Devastating ad. Romney cannot take much more of this without an effective response. Obama is defining this campaign 100% right now, with the MSM’s strong assistance. Romney is floundering because he is making the same mistakes as McCain: refusing to go for The Usuper’s jugular.

Didn't we just see that 36 people associated with Obama’s White House are delinquent $836,000 in federal income taxes?
Did not see names but that reflects on Obama’s leadership and judgment. The Crackhead in Chief better clean up his own house before he raises this one...

RINOmney is a fool to allow this to become the story. We can moan that it isn't fair or true, but the bottom line is that RINOmney's campaign is responsible for not putting out the flames immediately.

He has lost more than a week of campaign time now, just being dogged by this. Even worse, Zero's track record isn't the issue. They've successfully made the campaign about what RINOmney is hiding, his outsourcing, etc - ie. what he is hiding. Fools.

People don’t realize that when you have as much money as Romney does, then a tax return is several hundred pages. It ain’t no simple matter. I doubt they would be content with release of Form 1040 only.

No one but the hard core is paying attention right now; this stuff is kabuki. Wait until September for the big guns from both sides.

He’s getting hit with so much crap now he doesn’t know which way to turn. It’s relentless. He’s so busy trying to ward off the lies that he can’t talk about anything else. And he can’t talk about anything else if all he gets from the media is “why did you lie about Bain? why didn’t you pay your taxes? why are you a racist?”

I am guessing he’s already had the IRS look into it, and probably 0bama has actually seen the returns he’s demanding to be released.

I wonder how long 0bama will keep putting out this crap before someone in the media starts asking for details about his college records, social security numbers, etc.
