The Obama campaign is asking supporters to sign a letter to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney release “just five years of tax returns.”
In an email to the BarackObama.com list, campaign manager Jim Messina noted the letter he sent Friday morning to Romney’s campaign manager, vowing to get off Romney’s back about the returns if the documents were produced. The Romney camp brushed off Messina’s move.
Now Messina has converted his letter into an online petition of sorts.
“According to the one full year of returns he has released, Romney paid 13.9% in taxes on his income. Thursday, he said he went back and looked, and has never paid less than 13% over the last ten years. Now we’re asking him to put his money where his mouth is,” Messina wrote.
“It is absolutely relevant for us to ask how much a presidential candidate paid in taxes, if he sheltered his money or tried to get out of paying taxes at all, why he started — and continues to own — a corporation offshore in Bermuda, why he keeps his finances offshore in the Cayman Islands, and why he opened a Swiss bank account,” he continued.
In addition to being invited to sign the petition, supporters were reminded in a P.S. to open their wallets: “Election Day is closer than you think — make a donation to fund this campaign in the time we have left.”
Ok, so how long will it take to get a petition going for the Obummer to release his Social Security records, passport records, college records, etc.???
Everything they do reaks of despiration.
“We’re out of ideas, money and energy. Will you PLEEEZE do our opposition research for us?”
“Ok, so how long will it take to get a petition going for the Obummer to release his Social Security records, passport records, college records, etc.???”
Where do I sign?
And if it takes off, do they REALLY not realize what kind of petition we will launch. Their campaign is pure high school.
Remember, November is coming!
when pigs with lipstick fly
Everyday more desperation
The Obamadork/cretin/felon/quota baby is getting desperate.
Shove it, Chicago idiot.
this jerk will do anything to avoid discussing his horrible record of failure, chaos, collapse, debt, deficit, amd decline.
Just another fundraising scam
I can’t wait for the greasy kenyan and his criminal entourage to get their eviction notice.
What is the value of a petition signature from someone already in the Obama camp? This Obama Camp is getting stupider by the day.
I bet Wikileaks will have Romneys tax records out within the week.
Forged by the same people that did Barrys birth record.
Only problem is Obama team could find a way to release phony versions of the above while Romney would be stuck releasing his genuine tax returns. Which are so complicated the Obama propagandists will pick them apart and find things to rail about even though Romney's taxes are 100% legal.
Romney has no divorce records for Obama consigliore Axelrod (scumbag) to get unsealed so they are trying to force Romney to release his taxes which are extremely complex for anyone in his line of work or on Wall Street
The trap is set and will trip when a deal is cut to trade tax returns for college records or passport or what have you. Since obviously Obama can't afford to reveal the real ones, he'll be forced to fake them like the BC which will be his undoing.
Stand up to the Alinskyite POS or get the Hell out of the race.
It’s Amateur Hour in Obamaville.
