Of course, we will never know how much he has hidden in other countries, and we can assume there were no charitable deductions taken on any of that.
And we'll never know how many American Jobs he destroyed, since we do know that Vulcher Capitalists do not go into it to create jobs.
But we do know that both Ryan, and Romney are being booed everywhere they go, particularly when they mention repealing Obama care! ANd we do know that more and more Repiglicans are backing away from Mitsey, ever single day.
Even Mr. Magoo, aka John Sununu, is having an all out media fight with Peggy Noonon, who wrote yet another scorching message to Mitt the twit, just today, which boils down to Cut The S**t Mitt!
Could it be? Is it possible? Republicans will lose their Majority in the House, as well as lose seats in the Senate. Some odds makers are predicting just that!
They do have the lowest approvals of any House Of Representatives in history!
Let's hope so! Get rid of all of them!
Now, back to the headlines of Tricky Shifty Mitsey!
In the meantime, we can wait for more Mitt Happens, next week!
So here are the headlines on a late Friday release of Twit Mitt's tax returns, proving that he pays less than many in the forty Seven percent that he vilifies as being victims and lazy moochers.

Ok, by his own standards, he is not fit to be president. He said this:
"I don't pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I don't think I'd be qualified to become president," Romney has previously said. "I'd think people would want me to follow the law and pay only what the tax code requires."
But he decided NOT to take several millions of dollars in charitable donations as deductions, in order to keep his tax RATE at around the 13% or so he has said it has never been below.
He therefore paid more than legally due.
Not to worry, Ritt Momney fans everywhere! He'll FILE AN AMENDED RETURN when no one is looking, take those deductions then, and restore his qualification to be president.

And, what they plan to do is bring their rate down to only 2%, if he is president.
I don't think I have ever fully realized (though I surely thought I did) just how stupid middle class and poor Republican supporters, really are, until this election!
Dumber than dirt!
Think how many of his fellow fascist pigs were in that room while he trashed the 47 percent, many of the horrid 47 percent sitting right there, who aren't paying any taxes at all, and review their questions....?
We have a congress full of Republicans refusing to raise taxes on the top wealthiest in this country, still claiming that trickle down is the way to go.
If he had taken the tax break he would have actually paid <u>9 percent!</u>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The information released today reveals that Mitt Romney manipulated one of the only two years of tax returns he’s seen fit to show the American people – and then only to ‘conform’ with his public statements. That raises the question: <span style='font-size: 14pt'>what else in those returns has Romney manipulated?</span> </div></div>
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">We ought to have a trademark made for only Mitt Romney moments,” said Steve Kornacki after noting that Romney announced his intention to release his 2011 returns and a summary of past returns on Friday. “We’ve had a few in this campaign and this is one of them.”
Kornacki pointed out that Romney violated his own criteria for being president by paying more than the minimum that is required. Kornacki laughed noting that Romney had previously said that paying more in taxes than is the legal obligation would disqualify him for the job.
“I’m sorry, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>it’s just comical if nothing else</span>,” said Kornacki to the laughs of many of his fellow co-hosts. </div></div>
So, even in a year that Mitt wants to pay as much tax as possible, he can only raise it to 9% if he kept his word and took all the deductions possible.!!
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">At 379 pages, Romney's 2011 tax return is nearly twice as long as his as his 203-page return from 2010. A full 267 pages of the latest return are devoted to listing Romney's investments in <span style='font-size: 14pt'>34 offshore corporations and partnerships, including 15 in the Cayman Islands. Of the 34 offshore companies, 30 are located in countries considered to be offshore tax havens by the U.S. Government Accountability Office.</span>
Romney's Swiss bank account, which appeared on his 2010 tax return, has disappeared. His personal Bermuda-based corporation, Sankaty, remains. Romney also shifted $111,081 offshore to a Bain Capital affiliate based in the Cayman Islands during 2011, and an additional $296,471 to a Golden Gate Capital fund, also organized in the Caymans. </div></div>
This the guy who says he is going to close the loopholes!!!!!

It's time for him to do the right thing and resign from the campaign.

It is both sad and comical. Those on the Left ignore the tragedy or The Moron's tenure and harp on the inconsequential missing details of an irrelevant tax return. We have a cancer, the prognosis looks bad and the lefties are scared to death about eating too much fast food. It is the sheer silliness of your concerns that reveals the utter emptiness of your ideology.

None of us expected you to be able to grasp anything Sofla Writes.
After all, you are one of those people who want to take the country back in time, back to the days of slavery. Back to women kept barefoot and pregnant, and no right to vote.
Knuckle dragging RW Neanderthals are THE PROBLEM!
Did you hear what happened to The Endeavor?
After a twenty-four hour layover in the Texas air, it turned into a hot air baloon!

I have never advocated a return to slavery nor have I advocated keeping women barefoot and pregnant with no right to vote ('cept maybe in humor). You might want to question your own thinking that draws you into the quick lie or insult. You stand as a stark example of the point I just previously made: Goes out of your way to deflect, distract, take cheap shots while the country is crumbling before our eyes.
This is a symptom of adhering to an ideology that is corrupt at its core. On the surface, socialism/Marxism looks pleasant and fair, workable and a practical solution to all the social problems now and forever but history has demonstrated the exact opposite. Give Freedom a Chance.

What is your name for destroying women's access to birth control, or trying to legislate for removing their constitutional rights, or fighting to destroy or obstruct their rights to equal pay for equal work?
What is your definition for Republicans obstructing American Citizens from exercising their right to vote, simply because they are black, or because they live in a district which votes Democratic?
What definition constitutes men seeking to dictate to women what they may or may not do with their own bodies, exercising their legal Constitutional Rights, to have abortions, to use birth control, to file assault and rape charges against their rapists, to abort unwanted pregnancies, resulting from rape, or to sve their own lives.
Republicans have never understood the definitions of Socialism or Marxism.
They apparently do not understand the meaning of Plutocracy, either.
The right seems to have problems with all sorts of definitions.
That's why it's impossible to discuss anything with Republicans, intelligently.
Calling a highly educated man, with a loaw degree, who was the President of the Harvard Law Review, a MORON, is just as ridiculous.
Nothing in this president's policies indicate anything near Socialism, or Marxism. That would be Republcan Policies, not Liberal policies.
Nice that today you are writing with a more civil tone, and it's a welcomed change, but calling Americans Socialists, and Marxists, when the definitions do not fit, is unacceptable.

People understand there is nothing wrong with paying more taxes than you could. They understand there is nothing wrong with making less money than you could.
Ritt understands that second part. He took no salary as governor, just as JFK declined the salary for the presidency.
Why he thinks the first part isn't so, that nobody ought to pay anything more than they owe in taxes, is peculiar. That it would disqualify someone from the presidency, as he said, is bizarre.
That he now finds it expedient to pay more in taxes than he has to, by leaving out an entirely standard charitable contribution deduction, is rich, especially given that he said doing so would be a disqualification.
That you fail to see the irony and humor, and try to make this about the left in some way, or about Geithner in particular (whose qualifications for the presidency were never in play) is just sad and partisan. And par for the course.
