I realize I'm just wasting time pointing out to the american thinker retards that this is a false equivalent. Obama isn't trying to increase financial aid for super rich kids to go to Harvard. Romney IS trying to increase financial aid to super rich people. See the difference? I didn't think so.

I was admitted to law school in 2002, and I don't expect them to have my applications still sitting around in a file somewhere.

Lurking Fear: Romney IS trying to increase financial aid to super rich people.


I sure hope so. I read a statistic on a web site the other day that said for every dollar you give to the rich, nearly 750 dollars goes back into the economy. That's a 75,000 percent return on investment. And yet, Democrats want to put that money into infrastructure and education. Is it any wonder that nobody takes liberals seriously?

Those are roughly the same thing, especially since Romney's father set the standard of releasing a dozen years of tax returns that every other party candidate follows, and that Romney was willing to release that many years to John McCain.

Which also explains why taxing Job Creators is so bad for the economy. A generous salary in the United States is about $35,000, which provides more than enough for most families to own luxuries like cell phones and refrigerators. So, that $1 investment from the wealthy actually creates 3 jobs (well, in the interest of total honesty, it's not exactly 3; it might be slightly less because the Job Creator does have to use some of the investment return to build capital and infrastructure. So let's say it's 2 well-paying jobs and one low-paying job with potential for upward mobility. Like a janitor or something). Just think about that, though...you raise a Job Creator's taxes by, say, $1000, what's that mean? We're talking about thousands of jobs being lost. Thousands. And yet we're still having this "debate." It's mind boggling.

Where do you live? That is barely poverty here in the NYC area. I was making that in 1995 and couldn't afford to live in a apartment without a roommate, I couldn't imagine my family of 4 living on that today.

I disagree with the notion that one dollar of investment from the wealthy (our most valuable natural resource) only creates three jobs, with proven scientific studies from the Reagan Was a National Hero Foundation and the Obama Is a Dirtbag Society placing the number ratio much, much higher. However, the sentiment is absolutely correct. The historical revisionism on this web site (and others) is absolutely pathetic. Does anyone forget what happened when Ronald Reagan led tanks into Moscow during the summer of 1989, and the Democrats blackballed him into raising taxes on the upper class by a tenth of a percent? We nearly lost the war, because our men and women knew that the job creators (the real heroes) could not perform under such stress. Morale plummeted, and it almost allowed the Democrats to make a deal with the Soviets to assimilate the two countries. Now, people are probably wondering what this conversation has to do with the article, but people wonder why Democrats have a place in a functioning society, so here we are.

Yes, but they kept the application knowing he would be President. Just as Hussein's parents wired in a fake birth announcement from Kenya to the Honolulu Star Bulletin so that he could be President. That's just how diabolical he is.

We used to have to get up at six in the morning, clean the paper bag, eat a crust of stale bread, go to work down t' mill, fourteen hours a day, week-in week-out, for sixpence a week, and when we got home our Dad would thrash us to sleep wi' his belt.

Rich Republicans like to pretend that they all started off dirt-poor.

Meanwhile, many of the actual dirt-poor think they'll be rich one day, so they vote Republican.

It's a symbiosis of delusion.

at Harvard, Al Gore earned a "D" in Natural Sciences 6 ("Man's Place in Nature") and a C+ in Natural Sciences 118.

Not to interrupt the work of ark above, but...

Is anyone else getting a little tired of people asking Obama to "release" things not in his possession, but in the possession of third parties. His application to Harvard? His school records? His passport records? Obama, if he is like everyone else, does not have these things, someone else does, if they exist, like his school. His releasing these records causes other people hardship, not himself.

Meanwhile, Romney presumably has his tax returns in his possession, at least he had 22 years worth of tax returns as recently as 4 years ago, and he did not destroy them in the meantime. At the very least, he has in his possession the seven years worth of tax returns the IRS usually recommends. Releasing them would not be any trouble at all.

By the way, did you know the IRS recommends that if you file a fraudulent tax return, you keep records "indefinitely?" Kinda makes me suspicious why anyone would have 22 years of tax returns to give to be vetted.

I want Romney to demand to see Obama's Harvard application and transcript. And then I want Obama to say, "I'd be happy to show them to you. But, first, you release the same number of years' tax records as I have, and you release your application and transcripts." I am sure they both got good grades. I am also sure one of them has something to hide in his tax records.
 
2012-08-07 09:05:09 AM  
Tell you what.... wingnuts can keep clamoring for Obama's first grade report card, and the rest of us will keep hammering on Romney's fear of releasing his tax returns. Let's keep this story going for another three months, shall we?

It'd be nice to see any credible evidence that Fast and Furious did anything resembling what the GOP wants you to believe it did.

rufus-t-firefly: dr_blasto: TIKIMAN87: I am more curious about Fast and Furious that Holder and Obama approved that killed 300 people including 1 American Citizen than Romneys taxes.

Schultz and Reid are fat loud mouth jack offs that need to shut up. Reid has already been proved a liar about Romney not paying taxes and the White House is backing way the fark away from what he said.

Could you, for the sake of all that is good and holy, please define what you think "proved" means? It would also be nice to see any actual evidence Obama approved any part of the whole Fast and Furious thing, too.

But, let's just work on "proved" for now.

His "proof" is under his bridge.

He may not be; he could just be genuinely stupid. Maybe he's just another ESL-anchor baby?

I want to know how Barack Obama got into Columbia University for undergraduate school. I want to see his application.

WE GET IT. HE'S BLACK.

I'm gonna RTFC after I comment.. Okay, listen you retards, you had your chance to play nice over Obama's long form birf certificate. You cried, and screamed and wailed and when you finally got it, you got even louder and crazier. You clearly have shown that no matter what is presented if will not matter to you. Why on earth would Obama capitulate to another one of your demands? You have failed to act like adults for 3 years, and it is clear that you won't be starting now.

Romney: Wealthy people like me are taxed too much, that's why we're not creating enough jobs

America: Well let's get a look at just how much we're taxing you

Romney: No, I'm not going to give you that kind of ammo

America: what?

Let GOPish roll with this...
You guys ask about transcripts in a transparent attempt to uncover a ridiculous conspiracy, and we'll ask Romney to show us why he's asking for a tax cut.

It's Romney himself that's bringing up tax rates on the super rich, it's Romney who is saying he's paying too much. It may just be the one and only policy area in which he's taken a coherent stand, it's his campaign's big idea, and now every time he brings it up, he'll also be reminding voters that he's hiding something.

The super PACs can feed on this for months.

I'm not so sure your demands for Obama's fookin college transcript will work as well, especially in light of the slap the righties took the last time they made such a ridiculous demand on the President. Yeah, we still recall the long form BC craziness. I encourage any con to chase the college app, get some ads going, really dig in on this one.
