What a farking catastrofark... Wasn't this guy vetted a couple of times? Every day, he somehow manages to get sleazier.

Anywho, long as Fartbongo keeps his nails sharp, all this shiat should make for interesting debates.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

The Romney campaign spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg, said the allegation that Romney was personally involved in the Marriott's tax avoidance scheme and that he had a key role in the "scandal" was not only "overblown" but also "dishonorable and dishonest."

Read between the lines here. When your actual spokesman says it is "overblown", "dishonorable and dishonest" that is an actual validation of the story. If your spokesman says it is an outright law and categorically denies it, it is probably overblown/unfair. When they say it is overblown/dishonest, it it is spot on true.

Conservatives don't vet on issues like tax avoidance. That is admirable from their perspective. They check for secret abortions, male lovers and ensure they went hunting at least once. That's the vetting for a Conservative.

How can the Rmoney campaign think that refusing to release his taxes is less damaging than actually releasing them when the heat gets turned up every single day? They have to know this is not going to go away. It's like they have a flamethrower trained on his ass and it's not some backpack tank it's hooked up to, no it's a mile long train of fuel tankers. This has gotten to a worst case scenario for him. If his taxes contain something worse than the allegations and enuendo he is total farked(pun intended).

So? Wikipedia does have employees who monitor edits to prevent political vandalism. That's probably who was doing much of the editing.

Besides, the information can be found elsewhere If I were the submitter I would have posted a ling to a news article, not a blog. It's not like this is a rumor or something. It was a case brought against Marriott by the IRS which was proven in court.

I know and I feel sorry for that staff. They have a very busy 3 months ahead of them. But it is an example of how wikipedia can be useless for accurate info for some things. Until the article gets locked for editing it is a war between the political vandals and the moderators. IOW the whole article is suspect for the time being.

It's not a stupid argument considering the history of both the usual conventions of presidential campaigns and Romney's personal history.

I know "prove a negative" and "I'm just asking questions" are typically the refuges of scoundrels, which is why Harry Reid was such a dick, for getting involved, but... well, sometimes you need a dick to fark an asshole.

Wooh. I think we now know who Romney's going to nominate for VP: Son of Boss tax scandal.

Sure, nominating "an abstract concept that is a collection of legal dealings" for VP is pretty unorthodox, but it really highlights Romney's entrepreneurial "think outside the box" mentality.

Yes, one of those legitimate things is his tax returns. Even if he wasn't a management consultant, it is normal practice for a Presidential candidate to release tax returns. Since minimizing tax liability is a part of what management consultants do, it's especially relevant in his case.

I doubt there is anything illegal in his returns, but there can't be much doubt that he exploited the hell out of every legal loophole there is, and maybe even used the Swiss account amnesty.

Romney is applying for a job and the voters are his prospective employer. If he doesn't want to show the standard background material for the job he is applying for, then he needs to GTFO.

I don't think that's a slight on Mitt Romney. The McCain campaign was looking for someone who wasn't an old rich white male, and even if they were, there were a couple of people ahead of Romney on the list. McCain went with Palin because of "maverickiness", not because he had to pass on Romney due to the tax stuff.

Romney's whole economic plan is based on the idea that "job creators" are taxed too much and that's why jobs aren't being created in the US. Romney is also running on his business credentials as a job creator. His taxes would be the perfect example of what a job creator is getting taxed and 13% is not what I'd call oppressive tax rate for $20 mil.

The issue is not the legality of the tax returns. The issue is that releasing 10 years of tax returns would destroy the whole "job creator" talking point.

Republicans try to make it about the legality of the tax returns to muddy the waters and avoid the real issue.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: McCain vetted him. And picked Palin.


And he wouldn't have seen the 2009 return, which would be the one that would potentially contain any amnesty for illegal foreign accounts. The last one McCain would have seen would have been the 2007 return.

So Romney may have used legal tax deductions advertized by many financial tax experts in the 1990s, then Congress seeing an unintended consequence closed those deduction paths...

I fail to see the outrage outside of "DURRRR OPPOSITION!" How about... I don't know... Following the path in the 90s of CLOSING THE DAMN TAX PATHS.

Seriously liberals, you look farking retarded on this issue (outside of Lennavan from an earlier thread). Blaming someone from playing by the rules while deriding others who wish to change the rules as legally expected makes you look stupid. This line of attack makes you look stupid. You would go to much greater lengths by arguing to change the tax code, not attacking those following the tax code.

First I've heard of it, but this seems like a clean hit. Even if the appeals didn't wrap up until 2009, Romney was the head of the audit committee when Marriott started using this obviously fraudulent "tax shelter."

How much more of this stuff is out there? We're still ~3 months away from the election, FFS.

This Romney guy is starting to sound more and more awesome. We need creative thinkers to get the country back on the right track.

impaler: serial_crusher: Wikipedia on Son of BOSS: The Obama campaign recently attacked Mitt Romney for his supposed role in this scheme. However, it has been proven by fact checkers to be completely false and untrue.

Wikipedia: slightly more trustworthy than the Daily KOS

So it's not only completely false, it's also untrue? That rarely happens.


It both rarely and hardly ever happens.

Lots of people need to learn how to read sarcasm though. Evidently they thought I was serious.
The KOS article cites that same Wikipedia page as its only source. Which is it libs, is Wikipedia a legitimate source or not?

Fuggin Bizzy: Kos is just RedState for the other side. Both cater to mouthbreathers.


Well, Redstate IS kind of a copy [a bad one] of Kos, so there is some truthiness to this.

But the whole "attack the messenger" thing you are doing doesn't really address the issue of Bruce Springsteen's kid and Romney, now does it?

Great argument...except for the fat that "the rules" woud be written by this guy that thinks the tax code is already too restrictive for people like him.

Wikipedia is at best a secondary source and thus not legitimate.

Next.

Let's look at this logically:

1. If there wasn't anything damaging in his tax records, he would have released them
2. The Romney campaign believes that fueling endless speculation is less damaging than people knowing the truth
3. We must assume they're right

The bottom line is, anyone with any sense already knew Romney was a deceitful and disingenuous tool - now everyone knows it.

Well, no. They also linked to the advertisement by the Obama Campaign.

But, really, let me google "Son of Boss" for you.

That is NOT what Wikipedia says, a-hole.

In a campaign advertisement released on August 9, 2012, incumbent President, Barack Obama made specific reference to his GOP opponent Mitt Romney and his presumed involvement in Son of BOSS tax avoidance as a Marriott International board member.[5][6][7]

You just make shiat up now?
