This is looking worse and worse for Romney. He's obviously hiding something, and Obama is going to rake him over the coals for it. He's probably holding out till the RNC, so that they are stuck with him as the candidate no matter what his taxes say.
 
2012-08-03 10:07:17 AM  
Wow, this just gets better and better. The convention is going to be a hoot.
 
2012-08-03 10:07:30 AM  

cman: If he paid no taxes for the past decade then why did he release two tax records saying that he did?

Christ, Kos, I know you are highly partisan, but going up Birther avenue does not suit anyone


It's subby who says "the past decade", not Reid or Kos.

And he has not released two years of tax returns. Less than one, in fact.
 
2012-08-03 10:07:47 AM  
Their source for this story? David Axelrod.

I mean, come on. How else to get someone to release their tax returns knowing there has got to be something damaging in there? Start a story about how they didn't even pay taxes.
 
2012-08-03 10:07:48 AM  

FlashHarry: cman: If he paid no taxes for the past decade then why did he release two tax records saying that he did?

he only released 2010, and that was incomplete. i'm guessing they're referring to the decade prior to that.

though romney's been running since 2006, so i find this story highly dubious. even mittens isn't that dumb.


He's certainly not that dumb, but he's damn well that entitled. When you have a guy his age who's never failed to get his way on anything in his entire life, the mindset can certainly take hold that he doesn't have to answer to anyone. In this case of the taxes, 'anyone' is the press, voters, members of his own party, etc.

In fact, whether or not there's anything of note in his taxes is beside the point. Assuming there is nothing out of the ordinary, the fact he's letting this blow up into a bigger issue by the day and doing nothing about it shows his mindset. "Fark the little people, I don't need to answer to them even if it screws my chances of winning."

Personally I don't think his taxes will reveal anything of note. And when this whole thing started I rolled my eyes at it. But now? The fact he's just doubling down on not releasing them says more about him as a candidate and his judgement than whatever's in those returns.

As I have stated previously: until President Obama releases his complete educational transcripts from kindergarten through college, admission applications for the same, his entire medical history, the entire medical history of his mother, the microfilm of his birth certificate and every passport that he has ever used ever, then requests for Mr. Romney's tax returns are not reasonable and hypocritical.

This is the most delicious dirty pool in so many ways.

Why is Sen. Reid leaking this?
Because Sen. Reid is LDS.
Most likely Sen. Reid's source is LDS.
Gov. Romney is LDS.

So Gov. Romney gets dragged through the mud for the returns and the tight cabal that the LDS frequently operates their businesses in and Gov. Romney will have a harder time complaining that this is all anti-Mormon bigotry.

Romney is farked if this story is true. Reid is one thing but a news source also saying it's true is going to make it 10 worse. And now Romney is on record saying it is untrue.

It's a nice trap. Romney can let the lie (if it is a lie) about him paying no taxes run rampant, OR he can release the tax returns. And he's made it clear that there's SOMETHING damaging in those returns...so either way, he's farked.


The 2008 McCain campaign have helped make that clear. If you look through his tax history and then say "Crap, we're going with Palin" you know there are skeletons in his closet that would make the Cryptkeeper do a double-take.

sprawl15: Corvus: And now Romney is on record saying it is untrue.

I was under the impression that he didn't so much say it was untrue as say "I paid exactly what I was supposed to pay!"


Someone illustrated this very nicely in another thread.

A normal person would probably say, "I didn't pay less than I was legally required to; if I had, that would be a problem."
Mitt Romney says, "I didn't pay more than I was legally required to; if I had, that would be a problem."
 
2012-08-03 10:12:38 AM  

FishStampede: it's not far fetched that this could sink his campaign before it even gets out of the dock.


Which is why the Obama campaign is waiting until after the convention, when Romney goes from "presumptive nominee" to actually getting his name fixed on state ballots, to launch their sortie.

We haven't had an uncontested Presidential election since 1820. Exciting times.

I'm going to update what I said in the last thread.

The fact that both Harry Reid and Dana Bash (CNN congressional correspondent) cite their source about Romney's taxes as "very credible" suggests to me that the source is in John McCain's current or former staff, if not John McCain himself.

I wonder, though, if Reid's office put Dana Bash in contact with their source, which without disclosure of this by Dana Bash and/or CNN would frankly be shoddy journalism, as it's not that different from simply repeating a rumor as fact.

Obama could release his decoded Genome and many would still call for more bullshiat releases from him.

In Russia, rich peasant pays Government ruinous taxes. In America, Government pays rich peasants ruinous taxes.

Yakoff Smirnov said that.

No. He didn't.

Would you believe Yacko Warner?

How about Brantgoose.


It's funny because it's true. Mitt Romney is telling the truth when he says he didn't pay zero taxes. He paid minus taxes to the tune of millions of dollars in transfers from the government to the rich that as a politician, he suggested. Many US corporations have been "charged" with the job of collecting taxes from consumers. And to cut out the middle man, they've been allowed to keep the taxes they collect.

Do you remember from history classes you may or may not have been required to take in high school or university, the tax farmers whose depredations were among the grievances that led to the French Revolution. Well, met the new boss, same as the old boss.

Two hundred and some odd decades after the Revolution, the rich are back in the same aristocratid driving seat they were in before 1776, before 1789, before the October Revolution in November, 1917.

Ha! ha!

Sucks to be you! Oh, wait. That hurts. It makes me feel bad. This must be how all the other people feel when I mock them. Tough shiat. It still sucks to be them.

FishStampede: Derp up there does actually bring up a good point, that the oft-used argument about people who pay zero federal income tax is they still pay other taxes like sales tax, social security, etc. If Mitt paid zero income tax, it's true he still probably paid taxes everywhere. Unless he managed to completely write off his homes as churches, buy everything online but have a minion pick it up from the distributor thus avoiding S&H, etc. That would just be completely silly.

We can be outraged about him not paying INCOME taxes at his level of wealth, but we do have to acknowledge he put into the pot somewhere along the way, even if he might have put a ten in but taken a buck or two back out and snickered as he walked away.



actually since Romney is arguing that we need to cut federal income taxes for the wealthy because those taxes are slowing down the job creators then the fact that he pays little to none is what's really important here.

the GOP really picked the wrong guy to make their latest trickle down economics BS argument.

ManateeGag: Since this is CNN reporting, it could be the exact opposite for all we know.

Um, it's CNN, not Fox. CNN may be incompetent, but they aren't the liars of Fox.

True, but everyone knows that when CNN reports something you need to doublecheck that they haven't hosed it again. I'll give them the credit that they're not necessarily intentionally bullshiatting like FOX does.


CNN is proof positive that you should not attribute to malice what is better attributed to incompetence. They're dumb as a bag of hammers. Although I am inclined to believe Mitt Romney is shadier than a live oak, I'm going to wait until this is confirmed by an organization that isn't the international symbol for cranial-rectal inversion.

INCOME and PAYROLL. Two taxes to talk about. Mitt says he was unemployed, so didn't contribute to medicare or SS. If he was making lots of money as an unemployed dude, well, that just means you're in the wrong racket.

Still, I'd prefer to see something better than "my anonymous source confirms Reid's anonymous source's argument" articles. I also expect Mitt's tax to be low, but likely not zero. I could see him raking in money and finding a method to get around 5%, I could also see him using the 2009 amnesty as well. The amnesty would be really embarrassing for a presidential candidate and I think likely worse than any period of really low taxes (not that super-low tax rates paid would look good).



I'm willing to bet the Obama Team already knows. It's a really good strategy to let this fuse burn slowly if it is actually true. Politics in general is largely ignored during the summer months so letting the bomb go off after September would have a much larger impact.

Sadly, this won't matter. Conservatives will still vote for him because their "worst guy" is better than our "best guy."

Typical "Us vs. Them" Propoganda rules the day with American Politics. When there is a viable third party representation is the only hope this bipartisan crap will come to and end. Then again, we'll probably just go full "tri-partisan." I'm trademarking that.

We're irrevocably farked, aren't we?

In the end, I'd rather be stabbed in the front by a Democrat than stabbed in the back by a Republican.

what CNN shoddy? no

I wouldn't hang my hat on this just yet, but the fact that Romney isn't releasing them tells me that at the very least a look at his taxes would show that he's paying a very low rate and he's not really creating any jobs. The tax cuts for job creators myth is what's at stake here I think.

I REALLY hope that's who it is. Revealing someone's confidential tax information is a crime and depending on how one came about the information, can be punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

So basically the IRS hasn't ruined Romney's life by now... because? Go on, tell us.

Romney released one year of tax returns and the results have been an unprecedented campaign of distortion and lies from liberals about it. He's going to release this years tax returns, and the results will be another campaign of distortions and lies from liberals. I'm terribly sorry if Romney isn't given you material to distort and lie about because you sure as hell can't run on Obama's record.

It's exactly what it is, and Reid doesn't have the legal authority to release the returns. Romney does. He refused to release them, this is what you get.

Romney should release them no doubt. That is the standard set by our Presidential candidates dating back for a long time. I dont know about privacy laws concerning tax returns, but is it really ethical for someone to expose another person like this?

I seem to remember a long time ago when journalists held the public's trust even if they didn't name their sources. And sometimes we even respected them more when they chose to protect the identities of those people. Maybe the whole Valerie Plame incident put an end to that trust. Or maybe it died years before then, when ratings became more important than accurate reporting and journalistic integrity.

Oh look, a highly credible source gave me this super-secret memo:


TO: Official Obama Cheerleading Brigade
FROM: Obama For America
RE: Today's Marching Orders

This morning, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released the unemployment numbers for the month of July. While we were able to use statistical fudges to get the overal job growth number to 163,000 (a new "bikini graph" talking point update will be distributed shortly), the unemployment number rose to 8.3%. While we figure out why this was George W. Bush's fault, we need all of our loyal Cheerleaders to keep on working to distract the American people.

That means you need to milk Sen. Reid's tax accusations for a few more days until our crack Distractions Unit comes up with a new accusation against Mitt Romney. We've had one of our top CNN agents try to fan the flames for a little bit longer, but we need all of you to continually flog your approved Cheerleader Talking Points at least through the weekend.

Remember, our Cheerleading Squad is crucial to our efforts at districting the American electorate from the state of the economy so that Barack Obama can spent at least another four years in the White House. So keep up the blogging, make sure that you forward all the Daily Kos and TPM stories to your friends and posting them on Facebook, Twitter, and for the three of you on Google Plus you might as well do that too. Dear Leader President Obama is counting on your support!

P.S. While we appreciate the enthusiasm for emulating the President, we would like to remind our Cheerleaders that a "hot dog roast" should only involve processed meat products, and not real dogs.


Wait, you say, that "memo" is a total fake with no basis in reality! Well, prove that it's fake then!
