Hey far right GOPers..... seems like you've forgotten how much you hate Mitt Romney..... fortunately you left a website up for 4 years that will refresh your memory.... http://www.exposemittromney.com/

Jorn the Younger: FTFA: Gillespie faulted the Obama team's focus on Romney's personal taxes. "It wasn't an issue in 2008 because President Obama wasn't trying to distract from a four-year-long record of failed policies," he added.

I thought Mitt Romney's tax returns weren't an issue in 2008 because John McCain was the Republican Presidential Nominee.



It wasn't an issue because both McCain and Obama released their tax returns.

MeinRS6: If the whole thing gets under Obama's and all libs' skin, then so much the better. They can twist and turn in the wind over returns from 5 yrs ago and not gain a single vote in the process.


When Romney releases the 12 years of taxes and "libs" claim forgery and demand the long-form tax returns and college transcripts and other idiocy, then we can start considering this equivalent to what the birthers have done for the past four years and counting.

MeinRS6: farkityfarker: MeinRS6: ShawnDoc: Way to go Mitt, just a few weeks before the election is a great time to remind undecided voters about you being the first candidate in damn near forever to not release several years of tax returns. No way that's going to bite you in the ass.

It won't matter. Voters already know Romney is rich. People will be voting for him to get rid of Obama.

And most importantly, people voting for Romney don't care what pisses libs off. In fact, it's good comedy.

Instead of making such a silly worthless post, would you like to actually speculate why Romney refuses to release his returns, and/or defend the action in some way?

I don't think it was silly. I think it is true that people voting for Romney don't care what piss libs off. They also want Romney to win by running the best campaign he can. And I would guess that Romney isn't releasing more returns because his political enemies are using them to attack him. 

If the whole thing gets under Obama's and all libs' skin, then so much the better. They can twist and turn in the wind over returns from 5 yrs ago and not gain a single vote in the process.


You're right, this topic will never make someone like you, for example, who doesn't care who he votes for as long as it's not Obama, make for Obama. This wont drive away the base.

But it will drive away people who might have voted for Romney. When Mitt refuses to release his returns, all he does is remind people (again, not people like you, as you've quite thoroughly demonstrated) how low an opinion he has of the citizenry he wishes to govern.

And the thing is, I think he truly doesn't get it. We know that Mitt Romney is a man who changes the rules of games so he can win. But he can't change the rules of this game- if he wants to win, he has to get the American People to vote for him.

It's not about if he cheated on his taxes- I don't think he did, and if he had, it wouldn't much change my opinion of the man. I don't even think it's necessarily about the rate he paid- he may well have paid over 13% every year for the past 10 years.

I think it's purely about the amount of money he was making, and what that 13% actually equalled, compared to the 87% he kept. It would make it really hard for the Republican Party to keep pushing the line that the wealthy can't create jobs because the taxes are too high line. If we see Mitt Romney earning hundreds of millions of dollars (after taxes), he can't really turn around and say he didn't have enough money to invest in America because he paid too much in taxes.

And before you say it, no, I wasn't going to be voting for Romney anyway, even if he did release all of his tax returns, because I have a brain in my head, and I've been paying attention, and know that a Romney presidency would be disasterous for this country- not only for what he would do as Cheif Executive, but also because of what he represents.

There's a massive problem with our Government today that stems from people entering Public Service not out of a sense of civic duty, but out of desire for personal advancement. Mitt Romney is the posterboy for this epidemic, and if he wins, we all lose.

Nope. You're just repeating the lib talking point on the tax return issue. The talking point is wrong. In a lib echo chamber, like Fark, that might be hard info to come by, but I'm here to help you.

No one is going to walk in the voting booth and vote for Obama thinking "If only I had seen Romney's 2009 tax return". That's just not going to happen, so stop believing the nonsense.

I don't mean for you to stop attacking Romney, I know libs won't do that. I'm just pointing out that this particular attack is weak sauce when it comes to getting votes for Obama.

You're right, nobody's walking into the voting booth to vote for Obama because Romney refused to release a given tax return. Nobody smart enough to understand why it's important he release them is stupid enough to be a single-issue voter.

No, they'll be voting for Obama for a variety of reasons, among them that he's "Not-Romney" - because Romney has repeatedly shown himself to be an unsuitable choice for the office. You seem to be saying that because this wont be the straw that breaks the camels back, it doesn't matter. What you need to realize is that when a bunch of straw breaks a camels back, all the straw matters.  This is, to switch metaphors for a moment, just one more layer in the shiat sandwhich that is Mitt Romney, Presidential Candidate.

And I'm not attacking Romney, I'm talking about how his selected course of action is Romney attacking himself. I shared my theory about why he's failing to disclose his financial information, because all I can do is speculate- I wouldn't have to if he had released his tax returns like every presidential candidate since his father. (Yeah, that's a "talking point". Doesn't make it less true. Or less funny)
 
2012-08-21 04:36:19 AM
He said Americans will have "ample information" about Romney's taxes with the disclosure of the 2010 return and the planned release of the 2011 return.

Look at Mitt's campaign being stupid here.

Point and laugh if you like.

By this point with what's already out there, if Mittens does not release his 2009 returns before the election he may as well not have released any.

Releasing a 2011 return ginned up to look as legit as possible only makes him look worse.

Fact is, Mitt's returns most likely make Obama's argument for tax increases on the wealthiest.

/Just like Mitt touting Romneycare makes Obama's ACA argument.

Unsurprisingly, you didn't answer my question. You just repeated your silly "butthurt libs" 4chan-level trolling.

If you think Romney has a legitimate reason not to release his tax returns, you should be able to defend him.

In 2009, an insider at HSBC blew the whistle about people not paying taxes by hiding money in Switzerland. The US government gave the tax cheats the chance to pay up that year plus pay a big fine or risk prosecution. I would bet that R-Money was one of those who paid up that year for not paying taxes. Most likely that is why he will not release any tax information prior to 2010.

How long does it take to photoshop a set of tax returns?
I suppose the long form version might take a little longer! It did take Obama a while to release his long form version birth certificate.

Is it too late to resubmit them to the IRS and correct some oversights from the previous filing?

You would think by now it would have occurred to him to just manufacture some fake returns that will look good. Its not like the IRS can confirm the information he is releasing right? The american people would basically have to just take his word for it that the returns released were the the returns submitted.

2012-08-21 08:11:27 AM

namatad: Tarkus: I thought third party tax materials had to be mailed by February 15th so a tax filer had time to complete their returns by April 15th. It must be different when you're not part of the 99.9%

he filed an extension to delay filing the papers, not actually paying the taxes. You are required to have paid ~90%(?) by the year end. april 15th is just about filing the papers and paying off the remainder.
Pretty sure that the extension does NOT include delaying the paying of taxes .....

either way, does he really think that he should still be president? he cant even get his taxes done on time and GUESS WHAT, he isnt doing them!!!

oh wait, if his accountants had finished in april, he would have no excuse to not having released them.
bwhahahahahaahahahahahhahahahahahahahaah


the article states that Romney is still waiting for papers to come in from other entities that he has no control over. So you didn't really address Tarkus' question, which is the same one I want to know the answer to. I thought all of the paperwork had to be in the filer's hand by the 15th.

/Does anyone know the answer to this?

I usually wait for the magic words, but I got shiat to do today...

Can anyone prove that Romney didn't pay taxes?

To "prove" something, you must gather evidence. Evidence- facts that make any proposition more likely to be true. The proposition: Romney committed some wrong-doing in his taxes.

Fact: Refuses to release returns when: 1) it was traditionally done for people running in his position, a tradition started by his father. 2) He has called for his opponents to release tax returns in the past 3) the majority of people would like him to release his taxes, including Republicans 4) his opponent in the current race has released 12 years of his, 5) Non-release hurts his chances of winning.

Fact: Romney released 22 years of tax returns to the McCain campaign, then that campaign chose someone else.

Fact: Romney demanded a certain numbers of taxes from his VP candidate to evaluate that candidate's fitness for the office of vice-president, clearly acknowledging that the IRS's "stamp of approval" was not enough for him to accept that that candidate was clean.

Fact: A major political opponent claims that Romney paid no taxes for the past decade, according to an insider. Releasing the tax returns would destroy the credibility of this political opponent.

Fact: Romney claims rich people pay too much in taxes and deserve tax cuts. Releasing his tax forms would bolster his claims that rich people pay too much, if he pays a large amount in taxes.

Fact: Romney's wife said that if they released their taxes, they will be attacked. This is evidence that she is aware there are things in the taxes that are able to be attacked.

Fact: The Obama campaign is using the issue to draw attention from Obama's record which Romney says he wants to highlight. After releasing his returns, even after a week or three of the Obama team picking over every silly tax deduction or questionable expense, it becomes a NON-ISSUE and the Romney camp can go after Obama's record for the remaining two months without the distraction anymore. The fact that they do not take the one step that will make the issue go away, releasing the returns, means that it is highly likely there is something so bad in the tax returns that the the issue will not go away if the return is released, but will instead sink the campaign.

Fact: On October 5th or thereabout, Romney's tax return for this year, the one he has already promised to be released, will be due for filing, because he asked for an extension. So, three week before the election, the whole issue is going to be front-and-center because Romney made it so. Releasing the tax returns sooner guarantees that the issue is stale by October.

Those facts, working together are compelling if not conclusive proof that Romney is hiding something really, really, bad in his tax returns, something that would completely sink his campaign.

Whatever is in Willard's tax returns, it must be something so bad it would force teabaggers to vote for Obama. If he wasn't scared or guilty, he'd release them.

GAT_00: Ambivalence: GAT_00: DamnYankees: Who gives a shiat about 2011. We need to see his taxes from when he wasn't actively running for President...or 2009.

Yeah, that's how you win that argument. "We demand his taxes for all years. Except this years, those don't count." 

Way to lose an argument that I didn't think was possible to lose.

It's a valid argument. he's only releasing 2011 becuase he's actively not screwing aroudn with them. IT's all the years he isn't releasing that contain bombshells. Republicans claim to get all hyperventalating about not paying taxes and yet seem to have NO Problem with Romney actively HIDING his tax returns, even though releasing them has been standard for presidential candidates since his FATHER ran.

It's very suspicious in a campaign that can't afford suspicion.

You can't demand the guy release 12 years of returns and then ignore the ones he's actually released, it makes you disingenuous and makes you look like a farking moron. What's more, it completely undercuts your entire argument.


The ones he's prepared/preparing and filing since announcing his candidacy are not the same as the ones the he prepared before. You can have all my returns starting... now! Doesn't do anything to assuage concerns that he embezzled from the Olympic fund, or declared dual residency, or took in income from Bain while Governing MA.

I don't think I've seen anyone demanding he release 12 years of returns. I've seen the picture that shows Obama releasing returns for all years 2000-2011, and Romney only releasing 2010. But I don't think that's a call for Romney to release the same exact stuff, just merely a comparison.

And nobody's ignoring this one's (announced) release. Just saying "whoopty shiat". That's not really what we were wondering about.
 
2012-08-21 08:43:27 AM

Ambivalence: He hasn't released anything more than a partial 2010.


He released full 2010 returns and a partial 2011 (pending the finalization).

The 2010 returns didn't include some external documents, but none of those are taxation documents.

RyogaM: Can anyone prove that Romney didn't pay taxes?


Romney can. Not that he's obligated to or anything, but the huge opening the whole tax return debate has offered Romney hasn't been taken yet. He can kick the Democrats in the nuts, hard, by simply releasing a few returns to prove Reid wrong. There is zero incentive to keep them hidden unless either a) he didn't pay taxes and Reid is right, b) he did pay taxes but they're so low that people will flip shiat anyway or c) he has done things that are a political death sentence. If none of those are true, releasing a few years could be the biggest punch he's landed so far.

He hasn't released anything more than a partial 2010. He hasn't released a full year's tax returns. By any metric that's incredibly inadequate for a presidential candidate.

Yep... Mitt Romney has something in his taxes he doesn't want us to know about. That much is certain at this point.

I'm going with taking the offshore account amnesty and not having paid much at all in taxes (by percentage). Either way, is obfuscation is extremely suspicious. Also a good indicator that he wouldn't be a very forthcoming president if he were to be elected.

I highly doubt we're going to have to worry about that anyway... he's tanked his own campaign and I don't see a path to victory for him.

I actually think he's got very little to lose if he releases his taxes, particularly with Teabaggers. They infallibly vote Republican, regardless of whatever colossal asshole they've nominated. Every Romney thread is filled with dumbasses doing incredibly painful mental gymnastics in order to justify Romney's obfuscations. I think they'll act outraged, but they'll cast their ballot like good little soldiers.

Liberals put their principles aside to vote for Kerry, and Teabaggers will do the same for Romney. Granted, Liberals simply weren't enthused about Kerry, while conservatives on the other hand actively dislike Romney.

Id rather see the documents about fast and furious that killed a US citizen and hundreds of Mexicans. The president and Holder approved it. But keep asking for tax returns, those are SO MUCH MORE F*UCKING IMPORTANT!!!!111

JohnnyC: Yep... Mitt Romney has something in his taxes he doesn't want us to know about. That much is certain at this point.

I'm going with taking the offshore account amnesty and not having paid much at all in taxes (by percentage). Either way, is obfuscation is extremely suspicious. Also a good indicator that he wouldn't be a very forthcoming president if he were to be elected.

I highly doubt we're going to have to worry about that anyway... he's tanked his own campaign and I don't see a path to victory for him.


At this point, I'm assuming that it's multiple offenses: no taxes paid (not tax evasion, just ridiculous deductions), the Swiss amnesty thing, significant profits from Bain when they were at their douchiest, wasn't a Massachusetts resident from 99-01, and probably pocketed some serious money from the cash-strapped, government funded 02 Olympics.
