(Breitbart.com)   Networks spend millions on research to plan their schedules for the highest possible ratings, so the only reason why Mitt Romney's tax return story won't die is because it's a global conspiracy by "activist old media"   (breitbart.com) divider line 16

WombatControl: Of course, no one cares about the unemployment rate, GDP growth, the price of gas, the price of food, the fact that Syria is in full-blown civil war, Iranian nukes, the coming burst of the higher-ed bubble, inflation, taxes, etc. What everyone really cares about are Mitt Romney's tax returns...

I suspect there's an unstated reason why Romney isn't releasing more than 2 years of returns: because the more the Democrats whine about Mitt Romney's taxes, the more unhinged they become. The more oxygen they take up with meaningless chickenshiat, the less they have for issues that might actually matter to voters who don't already drink DNC Kool-Aid by the bucketfull.


And what has Romney proposed to do about any of the issues you mentioned?

*crickets*

Anything I can do to keep this in the news. Even just adding a comment in a thread.

How criminally stupid is Romney to take a position that directly contradicts what his father's stance was? Holy Dinner Plates, Mitt! We didn't have to go outside your own farking family to find someone that thinks you're up to something! You've been a politician for years! Did you think this moment was never going to come?

Then again, I'm expecting smarts and a little pre-planning from a guy that straps his dog to the roof of his car.

Is there a reason FOIA requests can't be filed for a list of people who participated in the 2009 Tax Amnesty? It seems like granting amnesty from prosecution should be public information.

A man running for the highest office in the land, and who is campaigning on the strength of his business and financial acumen, should totally be allowed to hide his tax record from the public. Especially when the few documents that he has released appear to show evidence of fraud.

Yeah, Right.

Nah, couldn't be because he's refusing to release his tax returns.

Or maybe because most people suspect that he is a criminal tax evader who escaped prosecution by taking the 2009 Swiss account tax amnesty?

...he has been as transparent as most other presidential candidates...

Well, in that he blocks approximately the same amount of light, sure.

It's the same as Mitt's stance on Blind Trusts. He said himself that they're the oldest ruse in the book, except when they're his blind trusts and he of course has no say in them whatsoever.

"Taxed enough already!"

"Okay, how much are you paying in taxes?"

"OMG, CLASS WARFARE!!! MCCARTHYISM!!!"

I don't think Romney didn't do anything illegal. I just think his tax returns will show the degree to which he sold out America for his personal benefit. And what a ridiculously low amount he paid on his taxes for someone in the top .1%.

James!: Nadie_AZ: Breitbart will never get a click from me. Just letting you know, mods.


Mods don't greenlight.


The only duty of mods on Fark is to inform people they don't greenlight headlines.
