Who, me? Cory Booker? Dashing mayor by day and occasional superhero by night? Youd like me to comment on the presidents dismal performance in his debate last week? Why, no, I just dont think I could. I really shouldnt. Do you have a permit for arm-twisting, buddy? Ha, just a little mayor humor. Well, all right, if you insist:
Newark Mayor Cory Booker, a top President Obama surrogate, said Thursday he wanted to scream during last weeks debate when Obama did not pounce on Mitt Romneys joke about needing to get a new accountant.
I wanted to scream out, Obama, say, keep your accountant, theyre allowing you to pay only 13 percent in taxes, Booker said. The rest of us should have accountants like that.
Surely sensing Stef Cutter with zip ties at the ready behind him, the famous hostage video star turned the corner, saying the president made the right decision not to attack:

This guy, Mayor Booker, is stupid.
The Romney’s pay 13% because they give away a great deal of money every year to charity.
They are smart people who give money to who they want to receive the money, and not like the rest of us who see our taxes used to support communists BHO2 prefers.
For the past week these guys are still trying for a do-over of last week's K.O.
If you fall down (or in this case, get pummeled to the ground), get up and go forward. These guys just want to whine and gripe about what has been done. Losers.
They are all an antithesis of the man in Rudyard Kipling's epic poem, 'If'...
My morning radio program did a parody of 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. It was called 50 Excuses for That Brother. I only remember two of them:
1. Had to go pee, Lee
2. Not enough air in the head, Fred
They should market it!
Does the brother need more fiber in his diet or what ?
That and teh fact that most of his income is from Capitol Gains which has a lower rate than regular income.
Actually, that's incorrect. They pay 13% because most of their income is capital gains, taxed at 15%. I think that's fine. Smart investments build capital and should be rewarded.
The fact that they give a ton of money to charity, whether or not it lowers their rate a couple of percent, is only to their credit.
After you figure in the deductions and credits, income tax rates for the lowest 90% are below 12 percent.
If he has a problem with the tax rate, he should talk to congress and the president, not the former governor of Massachussetts. He doesn't determine the tax rate.
So did I.... like Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally".
Well, maybe not quite that much, but I did enjoy it.
Has anyone seen an article telling what percentages other notable people pay?
IIRC, an accountant who looked at both Romney & Obama published tax returns said of Romney’s, “That looks about right, especially considering how much he gives to charity”. “Obama’s shows that he did not make wise choices on his return.”
Anyone remember that or have a link?
