Skip to comments.Obama's Signature Move: Unsealing Private Records
Posted on 08/01/2012 6:37:58 PM PDT by Nachum
Mitt Romney presents one enormous problem for Barack Obama's campaign: No divorce records. That's why the media are so hot to get their hands on Romney's tax records for the past 25 years. They need something to "pick through, distort and lie about" -- as the Republican candidate says.
Obama's usual campaign method, used in 100 percent of his races, has been to pry into the private records of his opponents.
Democrats aren't going to find any personal dirt on the clean-cut Mormon, so they need complicated tax filings going back decades in order to create the illusion of scandal out of boring financial records.
Romney has already released his 2010 tax return and is about to release his 2011 return. After all the huffing and puffing by the media demanding those returns, the follow-up story vanished remarkably quickly when the only thing the return showed was that Romney pays millions of dollars in taxes and gives a lot of money to charity.
Let's take a romp down memory lane and review the typical Obama campaign strategy. Obama became a U.S. senator only by virtue of David Axelrod's former employer, the Chicago Tribune, ripping open the sealed divorce records of Obama's two principal opponents.
One month before the 2004 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, Obama was down in the polls, about to lose to Blair Hull, a multimillionaire securities trader. But then the Chicago Tribune leaked the claim that Hull's second ex-wife, Brenda Sexton, had sought an order of protection against him during their 1998 divorce proceedings.

Sheesh! Dumb America! Wake up!
What they will find is a massive transfer of tens of millions of dollars to the Mormon headquarters and other Mormon only related organizations.
All legal of course, but it will be unsettling to Christians.
Obama’s 2004 income tax filings do NOT match what the state of Illinois says he was paid.
He might want to fix those numbers first........
love the graphic.
Obama records which have not been released
David Axlerod used to work at the Tribune. He also got the Ryan divorce decree unsealed and aired that dirty laundry in the Tribune.
Let’s not forget Obama’s perchant to visit bathhouses in Chicago Boystown, his visits with Rahm to “Man’s Country”, and his male attendants in the White House.
Tim "Turbo-tax" Geitner is Obummers go to guy with the IRS. Comical to say the least.
“What they will find is a massive transfer of tens of millions of dollars to the Mormon headquarters and other Mormon only related organizations.

The Muslim Brotherhood-loving Communist Barack Obama is vastly more troubling to this Christian than Romney giving his own money to Mormon organizations.
Has Ann ever weighed in on the unsolved murder of Donald Young or the possible link to the 2008 campaign? How about the wild limo ride in Gurnee?
Harvard Law Review...
According to factcheck.org it would be unprecedented for a presidential candidate to release his college records. George W. Bush's records were leaked by someone but he didn't release them.
Anybody know if this is correct?
Nonetheless, his returns and the level of his importance to funding those missionaries sent out to convert American Christians from Christianity will be disturbing to many of what is the conservative base.
Never heard Ann go off on any of the Gay Obama or murders. Not her style.
“Nonetheless, his returns and the level of his importance to funding those missionaries sent out to convert American Christians from Christianity will be disturbing to many of what is the conservative base.”
Uh huh. Well, they’re REALLY going to enjoy life under Obama 2.0.
“They need something to “pick through, distort and lie about” — as the Republican candidate says.”
Romneycare, assault weapons ban, pro gay marriage stances, running from Reagan, trying to outflank Kennedy on the left, TARP bailouts,abortion on demand, liberal judges.....
Do they really need anything else? All they have to is point out that they are the same.
Before the Obama’s hit the mother load, their real estate taxes had been “fixed” by someone so they were much lower than they should have been. Someone blasted all of this stuff on the internet in “08”. An oldie but goodie: http://therealbarackobama.wordpress.com/2008/05/05/follow-the-money-who-paid-obamas-2005-property-taxes-updated/
Christians do worry about people formally leaving Christ.
In 2004, some of John "D-student" Kerry's academic records were released. And in the year 2000 we also learned that Al Gore had flunked out of divinity school, and that his GPA was not as good as GWBush's.
Additionally, we learned in 2004 and 2000 that GWBush had better SAT scores than did Kerry or Gore.
I don't know whether Kerry's or Gore's academic records were leaked without their permission; but I would guess they were, since neither Gore nor Kerry had much to crow about.
