WASHINGTON Do you remember what's on page 169 of your income tax return? Neither does Mitt Romney.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>At a town hall-style meeting Monday in Cleveland, the GOP presidential candidate got this pointed question about his investments: In this age of tough foreign competition, could Romney explain the "over $1.5 million in foreign tax credits" he received since 2000?

"I'm not familiar with that," Romney told the man who asked. The crowd booed. "I didn't think I paid any foreign income taxes, but I'll be happy to take a look at it."</span>
<span style='font-size: 17pt'>
In fact, Romney and his wife, Ann, paid more than $1.2 million in foreign taxes on so-called passive investments from 2000 through 2010, and paid about $800,000 in taxes on general income to unspecified countries. That's according to the couple's own tax returns.

Their foreign tax bills entitled them to more than $1.5 million in tax credits in the United States since 2000, thanks to Internal Revenue Service rules that prevent businesses and investors from being doubly taxed on money they earn abroad.</span>Romney's GOP primary opponents and President Barack Obama have sought to make Romney's overseas earnings an issue in the campaign. Just last week, Obama ran a TV ad slamming the former Massachusetts governor for having Swiss bank accounts.

Romney's campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

LOL, it is so funny to see lefties get pissed off at others who obey the law. There wasn't anywhere near this much hatred for Geithner and he was actually breaking the law.

I know what zzzzzzzzzzzz means because I am the one using it. You perpetually tell other people what they mean! Only the writer, can say what they mean. Sort of like Karl Rove? Only the listener, can determine if Rove is a confriming source, as Novak state, Rove was a confriming source. Got it?

It means you are boring enough to put people to sleep with the same old pointless personal attacks and insults, over and over, and the same old petty little, irrelevant untruths and misstatments, over and over, since you never provide any proof for anything you write here.

Nuff said.

You don't know what it means. LOL, only the writer can say what it means? LOL, you are a freaking joke. Sorry but you are going to be making up your own definitions willy nilly. You made a mistake and yet again you are too stubborn to admit it. Facts of life when talking to a Dem.

Notice that what really upsets some people is that Romney wasn't double taxed.
