Like the divorce records of his opponents, Obama will eventually “leak” Romney’s tax returns and will probably modify them, too.

I suppose the Romney campaign has contingencies for this.

If the IRS has no problem with his returns, it’s nobody’s damned business.

You know folks ...

if "anyone" at Free Republic wanted to run for political office ...

ALL OF US could release 10 years of Tax Returns to the voting public ...

and never lose a moment of sleep.



And so why can't Myth Romney ?

Because he's a damned liar, scoundrel, imposter ...



Hint: whatever the "poison pill" in those tax returns is ...

it WILL BE revealed. Period.

and Myth Romney WILL BE DESTROYED by Obama.

Here is a great example of objective journalism from AP:

“Romney, who made millions of dollars heading the private equity firm Bain Capital, is skilled at extracting money from supporters.”

This is too funny.

Tax returns are not a requirement for political office.

I don’t care what Mitt Romney did with the money he earned. If the Obama’s IRS doesn’t have a problem with him, then I don’t have a problem with him.

Romney should just flat ignore him and continue to talk about issues. Eventually Obama will just a voice whining in the wilderness.

Yup. One year of tax returns for every year of college applications and transcripts.

I'm more concerned with what Obama is doing with all of our money than how Romney earned his.

The AP is accurately reporting a "FACT".

Deal with it.



Billy Graham and Mother Theresa were also skilled at raising Tens of Millions from the public ...

and (almost) everyone admires the heck out of them.



Why is Myth Romney being criticized for raising money, as per Billy Graham and Mother Theresa ?

Because Myth Romney is a "world-class" professional-grade LIAR and CON-MAN ...

who happens, by the way, to be "Severely Conservative" ...

This is a democRAT fishing expedition, and they want Romney to supply them with the fish.

I’m sure there’s a lot of stuff in Romney’s taxes that can be distorted by the RATS.

He may. But unless Romney's tax records include payments made to his love children, his gay lover or to the Betty Ford Clinic for drug and alcohol detox, this probably won't have any traction with Republican and conservative voters. We all know he's successful and wealthy! (And we'd all like to be successful and wealthy, too!) The loser 'rats who think this is important will vote for Obama either way.

“A total of 540,000 people were unemployed in July in Los Angeles County, which has a labor force of about 4.84 million. Statewide, about 2 million people were out of work in July, the same as in June.”

Does Hussein really think people care about Romney’s tax returns?

I had to bring my social security card for a job I’m about to get so they have it on record. I bet Obama couldn’t give one solid SSN he’s had over the years, like the one he used that originated in CT.

Oops...

Mr. Romney SHOULD be going after Obama’s lack of
documentation, but ooops, he protected him on that before.

So. Mr. Romney is quiet and on the defensive again.

I don’t like Romney any more than most people on here do, but it sounds like you want four more years of Obama.

You're halfway correct.

Technically ... lawfully ... releasing tax returns and health records is NOT a requirement for seeking Public Office ... even the U.S. Presidency.



And we all know that Obama didn't, and the MSM covered for him.

Life isn't fair, and war is hell ...



"Trust" ... and "Trust x 1,000,000" is an essential requirement for political victory.

Obama got a pass because he's "half-black".

Myth Romney ... remember that he is self-described "Celestial God-Child from Planet Kolob" ...

and just a plain old rich white guy ...

won't get a pass on ANYTHING in this 2012 election.

Period.



Sandy ... you or I could release our Tax Returns ... becuase we simply don't have any SECRETS TO HIDE ...

Myth Romney DOES have secrets to hide ...

and that should make ALL of us VERY AFRAID ...

to give this LIAR the 2012 GOP Presidential Nomination.
