Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: This is what it's like when rich Mormons fight, apparently.Roves cry.
DaSwankOne: You pathetic losers can kiss Romney's ass. You are just jealous.
Nadie_AZ: Bain Investor Told Me That Mitt Romney 'Didn't Pay Any Taxes For 10 Years'If this is true, Romney is beyond toast when he finally does release his Tax Returns. Well, for everyone but Team GOP. They'll love him more.But I'll ask: if he paid no taxes, why didn't he create far more jobs than anybody else?
Wendy's Chili: Mitt Romney kicked a nun in the teeth and then got a tax credit for shoe repair.
johnnyrocket: When he can figure out how to write off his $500,000 'dressage' horse...then yes, Romney can figure out how to squirrel away all his cash and hide it from taxation.His continual flubs should eat away at his poll numbers, the 100 of millions in ads may prop it up, but no amount of money can polish this Romney turd.
FlashHarry: Either way, it's a darn interesting "no-win" situation from a guy who's essentially been running for president for YEARS. What the heck was he thinking?this is what i don't get. and it's amazing he's gotten this far.
Brandyelf: This discussion is nice, but.... where are Romney's tax returns? If he didn't do anything wrong, there's a simple way to fix this.
GameSprocket: Riothamus: Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: If you idiots are done arguing with the poor, persecuted little troll...Oh, come on, it's fun! How often can I honestly brand someone as a heretic?It's great to see Harry freaking Reid hand Mr. Money Tit his internal organs using birther tactics.Even more, he's using birther tactics to raise questions on an actual goddamned relevant issue. I think Mr. Reid might be learning something.I find these kinds of unverifiable attacks distasteful, but it would be easy enough to disprove. Since Romney seems unwilling to provide the truth, He leaves himself open to any attack that anyone wants to make.Romney donated $1 million to Planned Parenthood three years ago.Romney had over a billion dollars, but game most of it to the Michigan Neo Nazis.Romney claimed a male spouse in 2010.We could have all sorts of fun.
Hobodeluxe: walkingtall: Bypasssec: Absolutely correct! CHRIST as you refer to it is a convenient McGuffon for the Religious™ retards to rally around.And so it begins......actually he's right. the "Christ" of Republicans is nothing like the Christ in the Bible.Jesus preached tolerance,humility,to help the poor,the sick,to pay your taxes and that worshiping mammon was a sin.This idea of a prosperity gospel,of huge opulent temples in which to display your piety to be seen by man,to shun the poor,the sick and to judge others is an apostasy. And is exactly the type of false prophecy that the Bible warns against.
snowshovel: Nothing like a lie to get Romney's successful foreign relationship trip out of the news cycle.
thamike: Good move on Reid's part. Romney's caught between a rock and a hard place. If he's hiding his finances because he used a tax loophole for ten years, he'll either release the info or be a liar. And if it's worse than not paying taxes, if it's something illegal, he'll be indicted while he's campaigning for president.The latter is what I think is going on. I think there's something in there that may lead to charges and Romney's hoping to ride out the election without releasing the info. In fact, what if his entire motivation to become president is merely to put himself in a position to quash any investigation into his finances? It certainly would explain his complete lack of enthusiasm or finesse on the campaign trail. All he's doing is showing up for work and trying to gain access to the shredder.
shotglasss: The last thing Obama wants to talk about is what he's accomplished over the last three and a half years.
Bladel: Considering how much mileage they are getting out of the "you didn't build that" lie, the Dems might as well go ahead and run with this.And if it isn't true, well Mitt can always release his taxes to prove them wrong....
NewportBarGuy: Mitt Romney covered the expenses incurred with disposal of the body of the girl Glenn Beck may have raped and murdered in 1990. We know this because he deducted them on page 147 of his 1991 tax returns.
acefox1: Loucifer: You know you're a biatch if Harry Reid can slap you around.Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!Can you farking imagine what the right-wingers would be doing if the situation was reversed and Obama was refusing to disclose his tax returns?It would be nuclear powered DERP to the power of infinity all day long until he released them.Looking at the polls I'd say Romney has gotten off pretty light so far.
ArmednHammered: Yeah, whatever.Seven of the top ten richest butt clowns in Congress are Democrats.How much in taxes have they avoided paying?Link
ArmednHammered: Yeah, whatever.
kronicfeld: Hearsay within hearsay. Come on.
propasaurus: Because Americans want someone who will do the bare minimum and no more.
fusillade762: The Romney campaign's press secretary, Andrea Saul, has previously denied rumors that Romney didn't pay "any taxes at all."Oh, I'm sure at some point he bought a pack of gum of something and paid sales tax on it.
my lip balm addiction: Three Crooked Squirrels: Lsherm: czei: Sure, Mitt can release his tax returns, but then how do we know that they're *really* his tax returns? They could be easily faked, so maybe we should get some county Sheriff to look 'em over just to make sure.Seriously, though, Romney doesn't need to release them, all it'll take is a question at the debates that brings up the subject, where either the moderator flat out asks each candidate how much they paid in taxes, or Obama says "I've paid 30% in taxes for decades", how about you?Small point of correction, but Obama didn't pay 30%, either. I haven't gone through all of his tax returns, but he's still paying less than the average American. However, he's almost certainly paying more than Romney.Your own article says he pays much more than the average American. He paid slightly less than the average 1%er because he gave a bunch to charity.The Mormon church is not a "charity" it is a hate group masquerading as a church./see Prop. 8 in California if you don't believe me
czei: Seriously, though, Romney doesn't need to release them, all it'll take is a question at the debates that brings up the subject, where either the moderator flat out asks each candidate how much they paid in taxes, or Obama says "I've paid 30% in taxes for decades", how about you?
Bontesla: Bladel: Considering how much mileage they are getting out of the "you didn't build that" lie, the Dems might as well go ahead and run with this.And if it isn't true, well Mitt can always release his taxes to prove them wrong....What's amazing is that Rmoney feels this is preferred to actually releasing his returns.
Ambivalence: FlashHarry: whatever it is, clearly mittens thinks the political fallout for not releasing his returns is preferable to the fallout that would come from releasing them.Either way, it's a darn interesting "no-win" situation from a guy who's essentially been running for president for YEARS. What the heck was he thinking?
brap: He's polling much better than I expected.If it was just his hair that was being elected I would feel much more comfortable. His hairdo is very soothing, it's the meat below it that has me a bit nervous.
EngineerBoy: Here's my favorite quote from Reid in that article:"We feel comfortable in the Senate. Where the problem is, is this: Because of the Citizens United decision, Karl Rove and the Republicans are looking forward to a breakfast the day after the election. They are going to assemble 17 angry old white men for breakfast, some of them will slobber in their food, some will have scrambled eggs, some will have oatmeal, their teeth are gone. But these 17 angry old white men will say, 'Hey, we just bought America. Wasn't so bad. We still have a whole lot of money left.'"Well-spoken, sir...
wejash: JerseyTim: I'm also sticking with the "really, really undertithed" theory.The "I didn't pay any taxes -- and that proves how farked up our Tax Code is BUT ALSO how smart I am!" ad practically writes itself. Who doesn't cheer for someone sneaky enough to get away with something completely legally, at some level?The way-under-tithed thing is really interesting. If he has to catch-up tens of millions to LDS, he might be willing to take the hit politically in return for keeping the cash. After all, he's mostly spending other people's money on this campaign as well.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: This is what it's like when rich Mormons fight, apparently.
Dogberry: What a wonderful variation on "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" Well played.
