Skip to comments.Obama wants deal for 5 Years of Tax Returns
Posted on 08/17/2012 6:15:29 AM PDT by scooby321
In a letter sent to Mitt Romneys campaign manager, Matt Rhoades, this morning his counterpart on the Obama campaign, Jim Messina promised to let up on their criticism of Mr. Romney for not releasing more of his tax returns if he releases five years worth of returns. Mr. Messina said this offer should address any fears on Mr. Romneys part that that the more he offers, the more our campaign will demand that he provide.

Sure... lets make a deal
Put ALL his returns into a pile, with his college records and birth certificate and etc. etc...
And put a guard on it... leave the pile there for the media to see
Tell them they can see it as soon as Obama creates a similar pile
The problem with that is LIBS LIE!
Yes! No tax returns without Obama’s college records.
Who do these people think they are? They have no leverage to even suggest such a thing. Fools.
—Return the Offer with Obama releasing all College Records—
Those are pretty much the exact words I was thinking when I read the title.
It means the sentiment is universal.
This is rediculous, its basically blackmail not a deal... We hound you on something irrellevant and if you give it to us, we’ll stop hounding you? How is that a deal? that’s blackmail
No, no, no. Just FIVE years of college records.
Translation: the attacks so far aren’t working so we need to try a new tactic to get this back to the top news story.
TheDems. are frantic.
Romney is a fool if he falls for this ploy. He would be digging his own grave and providing ammo to his own firing squad.
What a little man.
What blackmail gone bad looks like.
Targets show strong and the blustering blackmailers start negotiating their demands downwards.
Still blustering, though.
It is a rule of all sports, including politics, to NEVER let the other team dictate the tempo of the game. Tell them to F$#% off. Obama has done nothing but seal all his records.
This OTrauma campaign utterly reeks of raw desperation at every turn.
And on that list should be a PAPER birth certificate from the Hawaii department of records with the chain of custody supervised by Sheriff Arpaio.
I despise these people.
How about a trade for Fast and Furious documents. Obama, you direct Holder to turn over all the documents Congress has required and maybe we’ll talk.
Dear Mr. Romney -
Please deliver a dump truck of dirt to the Obama campaign so we can dump it on you.
Somehow I have a visual of Lucy pulling away that football. Birth cert and college records for tax returns. Come on Mitt don’t fall for this crap.
I'm not sure that would be enough. Obama's transcripts might show he was a terrible student, undeserving of admission to Columbia and Harvard Law School. But would the transcripts show that was admitted as a foreign student, and claimed not to be a US citizen, or actually rescinded his US citizenship?
So I don't think Romney should release any more tax records. Romney has nothing to gain. This issue is meaningless to anyone who might vote for Romney. They already know he's wealthy. If the "politics of envy" motivated them, they'd be Democrats.
Romney should simply provide a release to the IRS to show his filing history, not the documents, just the history of having filed tax returns. Period, end of story about his not filing. I would tell his excellency we are providing only this after you are release ALL the files you have under presidential seal to not release, like college application files, transcripts, all birth certificates, passport files, social security files you have used etc. Put it out there in writing and give it to the lamestreetmedia so they can do some research, hopefully.
College records, I assumed, would include admission record and applications for financial aid.
Romney should tell them to pound sand.
Exactly right. It doesn’t matter what is in his tax returns; the evil bastards will manufacture mud and slime out of thin air.
This is called chumming for crappie. He hopes to return the conversation to all the crappie no one cares about except the media.
It is like this, as Obama is getting his butt kicked. So he has to chum the water with with something smelly for the media so to divert their attention off of substance we have been seeing regarding $716 billion from medicare.
He knows that his base was about to take the hook. Obama must get his fish to follow the smell he is putting into this campaign.
I understand Romney has already told them to pound sand.
Romney, tell them to go f*** themselves.
This tax return thing is meaningless. No one that counts, cares a hoot!!! Obama is toast. Mitt’s tax returns are not going to save Obama/Biden. General Motors is crusing to a second bankruptcy. USA car sales for General Motors are terrible!!! Obama, GM and the United Auto Workers are going down...but...only after swindling the USA taxparer for billions of dollar that they threw away at a failing business.
The short list
State senate papers
Official Birth Records
The Khalidi tape
The real White House guest list
Countless FOIA requests
Health reform negotiations
Fast and Furious documents
The weight of the Wookie
I’d guess that obamas cohorts have already got Romney’s tax records for ten years, and have found something in the past five years they think they can use against him...however privacy laws make it a felony to release them without Romney’s permission.
The dems have lowered their “price” by dropping the demand to five years, so they’re losing the negotiation. Romney should have enough horse-trading savvy to not fall for this. He’s given them two years, and that’s enough.
The fact that the IRS hasn’t gone after Romney proves that his returns are in order, and further proves that Obama only wants them to facilitate further class warfare.
Obama’s record proves he never wins without disqualifying his opponent, or cheating.
The Obama camp is disparate, otherwise this “offer” would have never been made.
They are trying to perpetuate the distraction.
Fk off, Barky.
Was the letter signed by Lucy?
Romney could have made this all go away early by showing checks he wrote to IRS, without details.
I’ll raise all real personal ID from Barry.
Take the deal if Barry releases all of the F/F documents
Yeah, if Romney didn’t pay taxes, or cheated on them in the least,
the IRS would have
A) Ignore it
B) Been all over his rear end
I would also add the Air Force One flight log and a passenger log of everyone on board the plane during the NYC joy ride/fly over that occurred in the beginning of Obama’s term to the short list. Also provide a lie detector test to third party employees who worked the flight and blood test afterwords to determine if they used beta blockers or any other drug during the lie detector test.
translation: Obama already has all of Romney’s returns, and has identified something potentially useful on his 1040 from 2007.
Let them keep whining about an individual’s taxes- as more and more Americans realize the fraud that is Obamacare.
It’s worse than that:
If he gives them to the left, the left will use it to mercilessly pound our guy and change the subject.
Terrible deal. Stand pat and give them nothing.
Obama is all BS talk about helping people.
By the way has anyone out there seen the documentary 2016 yet?
