And we still don't know what's in Mitt's tax returns
He's going to get away with it. It is amazing to me what republican candidates can get away with.
Thank you for posting this. He never showed us his tax returns, and he won't explain why he bets against the American dollar by hiding his considerable money in offshore accounts.
The man's a crook.
Check this out. These two guys are running for a house seat in Illinois. And here, the Democrat hasn't released his returns.
But now - why should he? If the Republican candidate for President doesn't why should anyone else.
My point in this is that he is right. He shouldn't. And now, because of Romney, no one should ever again. Because at the end of the election cycle it was a non-issue. That is why even if Mitt loses, he will leave an impact on elections going forward. It is terrible that this precedent has been set. The irony is that Mitt's father started the Income Tax Transparency, and Mitt has now ended it because he is so shady and immoral.
The now obvious reason why is that Romney took advantage of the 2009 tax amnesty program. In the last election when McCain was vetting his possible VP, Romney released multiple years worth of tax returns and, according to McCain's spokespeople, nothing was a red flag. However in 2009, a year later the IRS allowed tax amnesty for citizens (tax cheaters) to come clean about hiding assets overseas. By squirreling away their wealth in overseas tax shelters for the express purpose of avoiding their RESPONSIBILITY of paying their share of taxes to the country that made it all possible for them to become the people they are, people like Mitt Romney have played the rest of us for fools and suckers.
Apparently there is one set of rules for "the masters of the universe" and "titans of the financial world" but another for us lowly peons -- the ones who actually keep the plates spinning, so to speak, in this circus show known as our "economy".
That the Romney's absolutely refuse to release their tax returns for 2009 is THE red flag that gives it all away. Doing so would sink the SOB once and for all. True to form fuckwads like Romeny always kevetch and go on about how everyone else is guilty yet their shit doesn't stink. (Homophobes secretly wanking furiously to gay porn, anyone?) Cheaters accusing the innocent partner of cheating when it is they themselves who are double dipping. And the same is true with this asshole sociopath. He waxes on about how there's this great swath of American's who will never accept responsibility for their own lives -- on and on and fucking on about how THOSE people do everything they can to avoid their responsibilities in live. Well . . . . guess what Mr. Shitstain and Mrs. Shitstain -- you have intentionally hidden your wealth to AVOID your RESPONSIBILITY to pay taxes. You may not like it or agree with the rate, but guess what? It's your fucking responsibility to pay those taxes. You enjoy a quality of life and live in a country governed by laws and rules that allow for a modicum of civilization that affords you the opportunity to live like a fucking king and queen and you so deign from on high that you don't have to play by the same set of rules as the rest of us.
Well fuck you you selfish entitled son of a bitch. You don't deserve to be leader of this country if you can't own up to your responsibility as a citizen to pay what you should of your taxes. Absolve yourself as you wish and bloviate ad nauseum about how it's "legal" to do the shit you did to hid your assets -- we ALL see through that fucking lame-ass excuse.
How anyone in their right fucking mind could support and dare even vote for this lying fucker is beyond reason. America will surely get what it fucking deserves if this asshole is "elected" president.
Great! Now NOBODY who runs for President has to show more than one year of tax returns, then slowly release parts of another year! Thanks, Mitt!
He got away with it because the media is owned by corporations and the party of corporations is republican. It's not that hard to put all the pieces together. If it were Obama holding out all hell would have broken loose by now including impeachment.
5 Million people will give $1.00 to charity for Mitt's Tax Returns.
I haven't heard the fat lady sing "October Surprise" yet.
13 days and counting.
Politics is such a dirty, dirty business. You can't make that more obvious with a dirty, dirty businessman who plays dress-up as polititian.
tic tic tic...
Somebody somewhere has got to know what's in that 2009 return and if Romney took advantage of the amnesty offer.
What kills me is that not one journalist will just outright ASK the question of why he refuses and follow-up with is it because he took advantage of the amnesty program.
Force the issue!
