Obama’s signature move: unsealing private records
Human Events ^ | 8/2/2012 | Ann Coulter

Posted on 08/02/2012 8:09:00 AM PDT by Former Fetus

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.

You gotta ask.......Considering that Romney has been in the political arena for years, do people really think he would cheat on his taxes, knowing full well that they would be public record? People are fools.

This article says all you need to know why Obama is called a thug. The sad part is that no one, NO ONE, in the press, major nets or cable will expose him.

Hey Obama, show us some transcripts, birth certificates, passports. What are you hiding?

I guarantee that Obama and Axelrod have already (illegally) seen Romney's tax records and know there is nothing wrong with them. If there was some sort of smoking gun in them, Obama would have them leaked (and gleefully reported by the liberal media) in a second.

He needs an IRS insider to get at Romney’s IRS records and filings. I’m sure “Tiny Timmy” can and will help.

Fine, they are despicable thugs. Romney is still going to have to effectively deal with this.

It’s politics, by definition it’s unfair.

Axelrod for sure. Obama, maybe not. For one thing, I'm not sure he's smart enough to know what to do with them.

For another, he needs deniability when TSHTF.

BO didn't have to look at Jack Ryan's sealed divorce records. Just his henchmen.

0bama, Axelrod and all of those ‘henchmen’ need to be waterboarded for about 30 days or so, then asked “anything you’d care to tell us about your illegal activities?”

If not, “rinse and repeat”.

They don't need to find anything, they just need to point stuff out to the dupes; "look at how much he earned", "notice how he has money invested here to protect from blahblahblah" ...

The left has successfully portrayed any successful person as a undiscovered criminal.

Odumbass should unseal his private records and be a shining example for us all.

He’s for unsealing any private records except his own.

I used to support Romney releasing his tax records but no longer do

I do support him releasing his birth certificate, baptismal certifcate, draft registration, his parents marriage certificate, passport records, and transcripts of every school he attended from kindergarten

Then ask for a comparison

People should be ask if anything was wrong with Romney’s tax records why the obama gestapo-IRS would not have acted against him before now- or are they waiting until after the convention?

Romney should ask people at what income level all Americans give up their right to privacy?

Avoid the issues and attack.
That’s why dirty harry is claiming Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years. “so he’s heard”
Well here’s something else we’re hearing about him:

I’ll admit to never hearing anything about it, but have been curious given the complete lack of denials or refutations. It sure makes one wonder about the truth of the matter.

Will Harry Reid ever respond to the charges being leveled at him?

He really must come clean and make amends. It’s the right thing to do.

Last I checked the answer is $600.

My thanks to all posters who are taking Ann Coulter to task for not bringing up all the things Obama will not release. I keep hoping Romney, or somebody, is saving all that for an October surprise. Since Obama and his Marxist friends have mostly succeeded in running out the clock, there is probably not enough time to kick him out of office based on these issues. However, digging deeper into them would serve to convince a lot of people not to vote for him in November.

So true. They just like to show his “ smile” and fake I’m one of you moments.

In the end he wants a nation of servants..... subject to his whims......

This whole thing is a non starter. Nobody really cares that much about Mitt’s tax returns except the Libturds and none of them are going to vote for him anyway. Mitt is realeasin 2 years thats plenty. Nobody thinks he failed to pay his taxes. Its a non issue and he should ignore Harry Reid who basically just looks pathetic and mean.

If their was anything to see Teddy the swimmer would have found it when Mitt ran against him for the Senate seat. Also Mitt was fully vetted by McLame in 2008. This is all just so much spaghetti thrown all the wall and more than anything it is down right pathetic.

Obama’s problem is, NO ONE CARES.. The public has made up its mind about him, he can do no better than 42-43% of the popular vote.. it doesn’t matter what he says or does, he won’t move that number 1 inch higher. It could go lower, and he can do things to keep it from falling, but nothing he says or does is going to sway the other 57-58% toward him.

The public has made up its mind, and did so long ago, polls are just starting to catch up with the realities.

He can attack Romney all day long, release his tax records, do this, do that, and IT WON’T MATTER..why??? Because the public has decided ANYONE is better than 4 more years of Obama. That’s the pure and simple fact. Romney cannot be painted as more dangerous or scarier than Obama.. so Obama is spitting in the wind, and every desperate attack just makes him look that more pathetic and drops his numbers more.

The way he’s running his campaign, by election day he won’t get 40%.

Oh, my goodness - this is so very unfair of the Romney camp - after all, Obama’s been so very open and forthcoming about his own records....
