Shaggy_C: RyogaM: Anyone running for office on the "I, and people like me, pay too much in taxes" are asking us to judge them on the reasonableness of their judgment. Judgment is a pretty serious criteria for the office of the presidency. If someone is paying an effective rate of 15% or less for a number of years on their taxes, and still claiming they are taxed too much, it brings into doubt their judgment.

We already know that from one year though, so what's your point?

This is the birth certificate all over again. Where is Barry Soetoro's Occidental College transcript? Why won't he release it? Just asking questions. Blah blah blah. Farking party loyalists and their petty witch hunts. Democrats in 2012 are acting like Republicans in 2010 - like children. Gets old fast.


So, a candidate who's running on his financial experience and acumen refusing to release more than two years of tax returns because he's afraid people might pick on him is just a poor innocent victim of a party loyalist witch hunt?

Do you actually read what you type before you hit Add Comment, or do you just smash your face on the keyboard, say "That'll do 'er", and submit?

Shaggy_C: Corvus: You said all the information is already public. So then how much did he pay in taxes the last 10 years and how much did he make and from who?

I didn't say that. I asked what you can glean from a tax return that you can't get from a background check in terms of a hiring decision. Would you demand tax returns from every person applying for a job at yo---- actually, never mind. Knowing your spastic episodes and angry demeanor online, I think I already know the answer. Let's just stop before you make a fool of yourself once again.

RyogaM: One year is not enough to judge whether he pays too much in taxes, as Romney thinks he does. One year of massaged numbers could be a fluke. He thinks he is paying too much on taxes, but we cannot know on what he basis his opinion.

Classic Tu Quoque fail. You don't have to have experienced something personally to have an opinion about it. Besides, I've never heard R-Money complaining about his personal tax burden - he always frames it as the burden paid by small business owners.


Because campaigning for president is exactly the same as applying to work at WalMart

I told you. It will show how much taxes he paid and what sources he was getting money from! How can we get that information?

Actually all jobs I apply for I have more scrutiny then Romney gets.

kapaso: gimmegimme: The Republicans have spent ten years convincing me that revealing my private information is only a problem if I have something to hide. Why won't he just release the returns?

He has got something hide, obviously. Not only that it must be anywhere from really bad to career destroying for him. Releasing tax returns has become standard, the fact that he won't do it is very telling.


I LOVE the fact that the McCain folks know about all of the dirty laundry. Wouldn't it be awesome if McCain dropped that information?

Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn't take a salary in the four years.

You know whenever I hear about someone in high position, such as a CEO or whatever, not taking a salary or else being paid $1 a year or something like that, I realize that's not a good thing. No one can live on zero income. All it means is that they are trying to avoid paying income/payroll taxes.

codergirl42: Aldon: codergirl42: RyogaM: SithLord: Tax returns for birth certificate. Fair trade, no?

No, Birth certificate for birth certificate: Advantage, Obama 2 to 0. Tax returns for Tax returns: Advantage, Obama 12 to .75. School records for school records: Draw, 0 to 0. And any other document for any other document. Romney's still playing catch up, badly.

Romney did release his birth certificate, I even tried to submit a link but they didn't green light it.

Really? You are calling the same kind of certificate of live birth that President Obama released in 2007 a birth certificate now?

What? I never said Obama's wasn't real. I was just stating the Rmoney released something birth-certificate like to correct the incorrect stats posted above.


I'm just saying we have had 3 years of conservatives saying the short form wasn't a birth certificate and President Obama needed to release his birth certificate. So the score is birth certificate Obama=1 Romney=0.

Why should Romney get credit for the short form when The President didn't?

This has already been covered in great detail. He tithes to his bigoted faith organization/cult. If we believe him, he has given tens of millions of dollars--if not more--to support their humanitarian worksanti-gay agenda and efforts to feed Books of Mormon to starving Africans.

There's no requirement that a candidate be anything other than over the age of 35 and a non-naturalized US citizen. Beyond that it's up to the voters. They don't even have to have to be able to read or any education whatsoever. So, in many ways, the job of president actually has less mandated requirements than the Walmart clerk. So while "the people" can demand whatever they want there's no obligation to do anything. And in this case, it's not "the people", it's partisan hacks and their media enablers trying to invent a scandal in an otherwise boring part of the election year before the conventions.

Teufelaffe: So, a candidate who's running on his financial experience and acumen refusing to release more than two years of tax returns because he's afraid people might pick on him is just a poor innocent victim of a party loyalist witch hunt?


What does financial experience and acumen have to do with personal finances? You're making the jump from macro to micro in much the same way as the Teabagger who thinks credit card debt is bad so therefore we should vote to default the United States. I know plenty of people whose at-work output shows sheer genius while their personal lives are absolute disasters. It's more common than you think.

Cut him some slack, the poor man went without a salary for four years and then was unemployed for six more. Poor Mittens can't find a job with a resume like that. Certainly not in today's economy.

Roberts pressed: "Why not show that, then?" and reasoned that people could "move on" if her husband released his returns.

This is an aggravating argument which has turned me away from wanting his returns released to the public. "Nothing to hide" and "could stop this issue" were the same arguments which pervaded questioning the citizenship of President Obama; we know Romney is the stereotypical insulated millionaire, and all this information would do is confirm what we know while furthering this expectation of our right to personal information from a candidate simply because the position is public office. People are acting as though Romney did not file taxes.

Just listen to the man speak twice on any issue; you will find he has no solid position, his positions are simplistic and ineffective, he is unable to convey any worthwhile qualities, and so forth.

So then your argument is long as someone does the minimum then everyone should vote for them! You, like always, are making a strawman no one has said he is failing a requirement to be president.

Now are you going to answer me on how we can find out what he paid in taxes or keep dodging like you have been?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

Obama was being asked to release documents that no candidate had been asked for before him.

Romney is being asked to release documents that every candidate for the last 50 years, including his own father had been asked for before him.

The two situations are not the same. Period.

propasaurus: Just over half of Romney's 2010 giving went to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Romneys didn't have much choice there:

wut? they could have decided that it wasn't worth being a member of the Church.
Or they could have negotiated and told the Church you get 5%, take it or leave it.

The rest of the money went to the Tyler Foundation, a 501(c3) nonprofit funded exclusively by the Romneys.

which is an obviously evil Foundation. Giving out money to people named Tyler? Please! Steven Tyler, and Tyler Perry and Harrison Tyler (grandson of President Tyler) have enough money already.

Did Mitt Romney Take the 2009 Swiss Bank Account Amnesty

Wealthy U.S. taxpayers, concerned about an Internal Revenue Service crackdown on the use of secret overseas bank accounts as tax havens, are rushing to meet a Thursday deadline to disclose those accounts or face possible criminal prosecution. The concern was triggered this summer when Switzerland's largest bank, caught up in an international tax evasion dispute, said it would disclose the names of more than 4,000 of its U.S. account holders.


He had secret accounts and knew he would be found out so he applied for tax amnesty. He was breaking the law.

This makes so much sense why he won't release earlier forms.

It's absolutely mind blowing to consider this is so true. And I can't argue it won't be.

Through a strange twist of fate, Obama will actually become the first president to receive all 538 electoral votes. However, the Republicans will win every congressional seat at the same time. They will immediately try to vote to impeach Obama for having won the election, but due to some confusion on the floor, they end up voting that John Boehner legally change his name to "Big John Sexypants."


Senator Sexypants reportedly confused and aroused.

Option 1:

Income: 100,000

As far as I can tell, most of that money is used to build Mormon churches and support thousands of people who run around the world trying to annoy other people into becoming Mormons.

That's a funny definition of "charity". LDS is not Bill Gates. They take in $5-7B annually in tithes, and refuse to disclose how it is spent.


More then that admitting you gave 10% of your income to a non-Christian cult does not make you more attractive it makes you less.

Well LEGALLY NONE - because he took Amnesty. Politically it would be death because at the time he was breaking the law.

It will be funny when Republicans who were telling us that Illegal aliens should always face for their "crimes" will turn around and say "Romney got amnesty so even though he was breaking the law then he still should be president".

It's been out there for a couple years. It's obviously dated, but frankly not that worthwhile anyway. Not terribly surprising from a campaign that was run like ass and ultimately thought Palin was a winning move.

Now, the Obama Campaign's Romney oppo file? Oh fark yes would I like to read that. That thing has been years in the making since he was always going to be the opponent, and Obama's campaign in general is extremely sharp.

Well I did not intend to equate the two situations but the arguments made in the article with those made about the President releasing his birth certificate. This idea of the issue going away as a result of releasing or having things to hide are weak and could be applied to a broad many things we have no right to see, including those tax returns; the fact presidents have sets a great precedent to pressure Romney, but this does not justify the hounding.

which is an obviously evil Foundation. Giving out money to people named Tyler? Please! Steven Tyler, and Tyler Perry and Harrison Tyler (grandson of President Tyler) have enough money already.

And the Derp cavalry comes riding in...

I thought that was funny. WTF is wrong with people here?


You're not allowed to laugh at the jokes of people who you disagree with politically. It's in the FArQ man, get with it.

MorrisBird: SN1987a goes boom: Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn't take a salary in the four years.

You know whenever I hear about someone in high position, such as a CEO or whatever, not taking a salary or else being paid $1 a year or something like that, I realize that's not a good thing. No one can live on zero income. All it means is that they are trying to avoid paying income/payroll taxes.

Cut him some slack, the poor man went without a salary for four years and then was unemployed for six more. Poor Mittens can't find a job with a resume like that. Certainly not in today's economy.


Hell, he even said he knows what it's like to be unemployed these days. He really relates to us poors.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: Personally, I wonder if his unreleased returns will show that he personally funded the massacre in Rwanda.

What? I'm just asking questions.


Probably.
