mr intrepid: Really, trash talking Oprah? A woman who was born, quite literally, "a poor black child", sexually abused, and yet she created a media empire that employs, what, hundreds, a few thousand, people. As opposed to, being born the child of privilege and wealth, never having to really worry about anything, and getting rich by playing the angles? Nice try.


Republicans hate people who actually earned their money. Look at how they feel about Clinton, Obama, Oprah, etc.

How many votes did Kerry's wife get in the last election? I bet Romney gets close to the same number.

Does anyone know if Romney returned the salary he received to Bain stockholders after he was retroactively retired?

Inquiring independents want to know.

He literally invested money in abortion, and made millions on the deal. That's what he wants to hide. Until after the convention, at least. Releasing them before the convention will lead to an open revolt on the floor. After the election, he's hoping the base will forgive him since they are stuck.

bugontherug: spongeboob: Weaver95: hubiestubert: I_Hate_Iowa: You guys, Mitt's dad is the reason candidates release their tax returns, but even that isn't enough for Mitt. His dad is the pioneer, yet he's still fighting it. Wouldn't be amazing if Mitt's dad is the one that sinks his campaign?

To be fair, if his Dad had turned Mitt over his knee a few more times, we might have a better candidate and a better human period running...

I can't decide if Romney is simply out of touch or if he's really arrogant enough to think he can simply ignore the consequences of his actions here (his career at bain capital, not releasing his tax returns to name but a few).

Both
Out of touch because he only has yes men around, and everything about his life and upbringing screams arrogance: raised rich, went to the best schools, Mormon so he has always been told that he must have been very good in preexistance to get his white skin and perfect life.

I think the words that best describe Romney are "unreasonable sense of self-entitlement." His basic platform, when it boils down to it, is that he's just entitled to be president because he was born with a silver spoon up his ass. Reminds me a lot of Bush, really.


For Bush I don't think he thought he was entitled, he thought he was obliged to be president, that God wanted him to be president. I don't know which is worse.

Mitt does seem to feel entitiled to the presidency, and that all this campaigning is beneath him.

Once again the people who demanded we not question anything at all about Obama's past or anything he'd ever done up until 2007 are now intent on knowing absolutely everything about Romney.

What ever happened to just "listening to his plans" or "talking about the issues"?

Jim_Callahan: I mean, you're free to judge him for not releasing them if that's really what tips the scales for you. But frankly if you seriously haven't gotten enough information about the candidates yet that this is what makes up your mind, I've gotta note that I, in turn, am judging your research skills and general knowledge and finding them somewhat lacking.


There's other information that could be revealed on his tax returns than how much taxes he's paid.

Kanemano: the minute Teresa Kerry runs for President, I will personally request that she release 20 years of tax returns.


It would be the epic troll of all time if, after this dies down (if it does at all) Teresa Kerry called a press conference to announce that she was releasing 20 years of tax returns.

Why did Mittens' dad release his tax returns setting the standard? Why did McCain choose not to pick Mittens after he supplied years of tax returns?

Seriously, though, I am asked to vote for Romney based on his business experience. Not his experience as a community organizer for the Olympics. Not his record as governor of Mass.

Show me his business experience.

Because Mittens has no plans, randomjsa/libbynomore2/stewmadness. For the past seven months, all you've heard from him is "VOTE FOR ME. I WAS A CEO. I HAVE PRIVATE SECTOR JOB CREATION EXPERIENCE."

Now, you're upset because people want to know more about his CEO and private sector job creation experience that he has been pitching as a reason to vote for him?
Also, after hearing non stop demands from the birthbaggers for Obama to release documents, you're mad that Mittens is being asked to do the same thing every presidential candidate since Reagan has done? A practice that Mittens' own father started?

No, the original was correct - RMoney

Jim_Callahan: But frankly if you seriously haven't gotten enough information about the candidates yet that this is what makes up your mind, I've gotta note that I, in turn, am judging your research skills and general knowledge and finding them somewhat lacking.


Romney changes his position on issues hourly - and at least once, in the middle of the farking sentence - how the hell does researching Romney's stance on an issue mean anything? Though, considering his dad started this tradition, the only logical conclusion from Mitt's refusal is that he spits on his father's memory and hates traditional family loyalty.

As far as his tax returns, as a citizen I am his prospective boss, and I want to see if the employee begging me for a job is able to do something as simple as not breaking the law - so far, Romney is ranting an razing around the waiting room before the interview, shredding my application form, screaming at my secretary, and demanding a preemptive raise and 6 months of paid vacation, retroactively. Somebody needs to shut his mewling little mouth and stop acting the fool if he wants the job
 
2012-07-16 08:41:58 PM

tlchwi02: Jim_Callahan: Look, I enjoy making fun of Mitt as much as the next guy, but there's no legal obligation to release his tax records past a certain point, and unless someone can find an actual reason it's relevant to the presidential race beyond pure gossip-rag voyeurism I think we should stop reporting on this like it's some sort of real issue of some kind.

the issue in this case isn't the returns themselves. the issue is, he's getting taken out behind the woodshed on this bain capital thing. it looks like he's a liar, a buffoon, or that he's covering up something. he could stop all of the issues with the bain attacks if he just releases his tax returns "proving" he left in 1999 when he said he did. the fact that he now refuses to do that is perplexing and the only conclusion is that getting ripped up about bain and being made to look like a liar and fool is nowhere near as bad as the attacks he would field if he released them. and then people start to wonder- what is he hiding? what is in those returns that are so much worse than what he currently faces?


um, how about the idea that all the accusations are true? That he indeed received huge salaries from Bain after 1999 (after he had "retired"), that he has paid a tax rate similar to the 13.9% rate he paid in 2010 for years, and that some of his income has "gone missing" in foreign accounts, that some of his profits have come at the direct expense of companies that have gone bankrupt, that he has given/shielded huge amounts of money with the Mormon church....

Face it, there is no way he can release his tax returns. The only thing he has is the Republican base, who will vote for him anyways because his name starts with "R." Swing voters, who matter, are dropping away and disaffected Democrats upset with Obama will never go for Mitt. He's farked, royally, which is why he is acting so aggressively, rather than answer the questions. I'm truly hoping for an epic public public meltdown after spending close to a billion dollars on this thing.

Honestly I think Mitt has no real idea how to run a campaign. He's just looking back to some of the more successful years for the gop and trying to emulate what they did. Misdirection, projection, taking things out of context, playing the victim. Yet some how he's just not quite getting it right. It's like he's never done things before and just now trying them for the first time. But he has this unshakeable faith in those methods because he saw them work so well for others in the past. And he if keeps doing it then victory is assured!
