Rachel Maddow took a look into Mitt Romney‘s political past tonight to explain just how Romney has gone back-and-forth on the issue of releasing tax returns, from his failed 1994 bid to unseat Ted Kennedy to his successful run for Massachusetts governor in 2002 to the current presidential race. She highlighted an offer Romney made in 1994 to release his returns after Kennedy did, an offer which an advisor said was still valid eight years later, and wondered if the offer was still on the table.

Maddow highlighted Romney’s position in 1994, when he declared that he would release his own tax returns after Kennedy released his. Kennedy did not release his tax returns, and neither did Romney. In 2002, all of Romney’s Democratic opponents, including Romney’s eventual challenger in the general election, released their returns, but Romney did not. Maddow wondered what changed in eight years that caused Romney to suddenly renege on the idea of releasing tax returns as soon as his opponents do.

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>During a gubernatorial debate in 2002, Romney laughed off the idea that he had “something to hide” and admitted that when it came to the tax return issue, Kennedy “was right, and I was wrong.”</span> <span style='font-size: 20pt'>He said he eventually came around to Kennedy’s way of thinking,<u> but then immediately turned to the husband of his Democratic challenger, pointing out he has not released his tax returns.</u></span> <span style="color: #3333FF">Maddow tried to wrap her head around the idea that Romney could simultaneously reject the idea of releasing tax returns while implicitly criticizing his opponent’s husband for not releasing his.</span> </div></div>

A con, and an animal abuser.

Abused a blind man!

Attacked a Gay student.

Bought the computers used when he was governor to hide his corruption.

Has hidden untold millions off shore!

Has outsourced who know how many American Jobs!

Can't open his mouth, without hypocrital LIES annd slander!

He's just your typical, greedy corporate pig!

Repiglicans have made all of these corrupt, un-American rewards for the corporate pigs, legal, and hence, the pawns of the wealthy CEO thieves and propagandists defend the corrupted economic system in this country, and media CEO's aid them in their corruption.

There was a time when America wouldn't do business with countries who supressed human rights, killed and tortured their own workers, and exploited their own suffering people.

The George Bushs, Dick Cheneys, Ronald Reagans and Tom Delays of the world, changed all of that!

Republicans believe they are owners of the world and masters of the Universe. Any alternative Government, lifestyle, religion, or language, and yes colour. Is to be demonized, conquered, and squashed. Peace and tolerance are not an option.

I realy don't get. The most radical religious right wing is only what, 15 or 20 percent of the population if that? Why do they have so much political drag? If you guys are THAT far apart on everything just give them their own country to live in, say Texas. Then the rest of the USA can get on with reinventing the kind of society that would inspire the world to emulate. Right now it's a joke.....and a devastating joke with world wide consequences
The Financial system is collapsing, Governments no longer serve the people, and jobs are gone. The Industrial revolution is over and the prosperity following the 2ww has been conned out of us by the top 10 percent. Face it, Romney and his ilk only want to kick you when your down and steal your last 10 bucks before the shit hits the fan and systems go back into free fall. Then they will blithely blame Obama from some off shore sancuary for the filthy rich pigs that stole your future.

I think repigs need there guns. Why? Because they know what's coming, they WANT it to happen, and can't wait for the shooting to start. It goes back to their divine right to do whatever they damn well please, steal what they need, and give back nothing. St.

Yep, looking back through history the wars have all been manipulations by the religious kings and queens, in concert with the wealthy crooks, all of them manipulating the common people to amass their own wealth, and that of their families.

If you ever read anything at all about the Bush family, and what total crooks all of them have always been, going back to Prescott Bush, the treasonist and Bush One's Father, then it all becomes very clear.

Ronald Reagan, cigarette pusher, and both of the Bush's, are just the kind the powers that be lover to havve in office, since they are so easily led around by thheir noses by the most inhumane and revolting human beings on the planet.

Good book: The Bush Crime Family tells the whole story.

Romney is on that same level. A crook, whose father was a crook.

The worst thing that could happen to us.

And we can thank the sheep who are unable to think for themselves since they have that Automatic Fact Filter built right into their tiny little brains, they continue to believe that they have the right to dictate, just ton the strength of their usual KILL THEM ALL FOR GOD, ignorance.
