Romneys tax returns huh? What about "Slick Willies" health records and what about Otaxters birth certificate? If Romney gives em ten they will only want twenty.
Oh, so NOW they are for full disclosure! Too bad we didn't see this when President Obama was running... to disclose his school records, his passport records, his selective service records, health records, etc.
Typical leftist strategy, while the media is focusing on this non-issue, obama is getting ready to give the UN control over our guns and water supply.
If you think Obama is not going to take our guns away, think again.
The next law they'll want is that anyone who is elected President and survives for 4 years receives automatic citizenship.
The democrats are bottom feeders and apparently to defeat them the GOP has to get into the gutter where the dems live. This is shameful but maybe necessary.
How many years did Obama release when running for POTUS in 08? I would release that many and if they start crying still about it I would just point that out. I would say Obama released one year in 08 and you guys were fine with that so thats what I'm doing.
Of course this is their new mantra, "Romney won't release tax records for every year he's pad taxes. What's he hiding?? Has to be something!"
I think our founding fathers just had simultaneous heart attacks. Ok, don't beat me up on the obvious, lol.
The lifer libs are so disgusting and irritatingly predictable. They always want to ram through urgent legislation that will suit their political expediency. Then when the tables turn, they want to reverse/change it back.
I was thinking about the legislation they put in place in MA when Kerry was running for President, and Romney was the Republican Governor; they urgently passed state legislation to go through the process of voting for a Senator rather than allow Romney to appoint a Republican.
Then, when Kennedy was too ill to be able to return to 'his Senate seat,' Deval Patrick was Governor, and Kennedy didn't want to risk having an election to fill 'the Kennedy seat,' he wanted to urgently pass legislation to turn the law back, so that Patrick could appoint a Democrat. It didn't happen though, because they were “nervous about being accused of engineering a self-serving change to help their party just a few years after ramming through a similar self-serving change.”
I couldn’t remember all the details, so I googled it (link below)
Also, just as an aside, I read today that it was on this day (7/18) in 1969 that Kennedy killed Mary Jo.
So let me get this straight. The Democrats are more interested in Romney's tax returns than they are in trying to find out if the President and the Attorney General are obstructing justice and are guilty of perjury in the Fast & Furious Case? A case, I might add, that resulted in the deaths of at least one American border patrol agent and roughly 200 Mexicans. And then the Democrats wonder why they're hated so much. Pathetic.
I have a better Idea, how about voting to compel obama to release the papers in fast and furious....
the lib media says House votes to repeal Obamacare are a waste of money and government resources because they go nowhere.
i wonder if this vote targeting Romney that will also go nowhere will also be called wasteful.....???
Would that not be a law of attainder? Singularly? Just for Romney. The BO can't even say where or when he was born, how he got his draft card or social security number, nor that he even attended the schools that he claims he did. Who financed his tuitions, or if he really did ever attain the degrees he claims. A revoked law license, why? Seems the BO has much more to answer to than Romney !!
This is a crock of trash
What a bunch of dirtbags
Theirs are secret - This is a diversion
Mitt should dig in his heels and tell them NO
until Obama comes clean on everything he has secret
Most members of Congress keep their tax returns secret >>>
Again, the tax returns were release when he filed them with the IRS. The government has them, has had them quite sometime, and the IRS has obviously not found anything wrong. If they had, Eric Holder our chief law enforcement officer would have done something about it, or was he too busy covering his rear end over fast/furious?
The democrat mind never fails to amaze me. Now if they want to pass legislation to require all college transcripts be released as well as the tax returns for spouses, I would be interested to see where this would lead.
However this is just demagoguery.
Today, Ryan Zinke, an ex-Navy SEAL and Montana State Senator, announced the launch of Special Operations for America, a political action committee dedicated to “the election of Mitt Romney and like-minded candidates.”
“Navy SEAL’s, Special Operations Personnel and Veteran’s across America have been outraged since Barack Obama conveniently took credit for killing Osama Bin Laden for political gain,” a statement announcing the launch of SOFA said. “The active duty military has no voice as they are forbidden to publicly engage in the political campaign process and it is career suicide for senior military leaders to speak out against the President.”
Mr. Zinke, who has frequently slammed the president’s handling of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, reiterated his criticisms of the operation.
Darrell Issa: 'The Imperial President Is What We're Dealing With'
why are these same dems not concerned about getting to the bottom of F&F, 200 plus people dead, but they do not care no one is held responsible.
Group offers $100k for evidence Obama or senior White House aides knew about Fast and Furious
When responding to and inspired by Kong1967, I came up with an idea how to turn this whole thing around and put Obama on the defensive. Romney HAS got to go on the attack. Here's how:
1. Challenge Obama to a series of Lincoln/Douglas debates.
2. Obama of course will say no... because he's got NOTHING.
3. Romney starts to collect videos of Obama's stated "positions" over time.
4. Post new ads where Romney plays the videos of the Obama position and then debates it.
Then end each ad with something like, "A man who has done nothing to help America has a lot to hide. That's why Obama won't come out and have an open, honest debate. So I'll debate his positions in this manner until he comes out of hiding and finally faces the issues in the light of public scrutiny."
Wouldn't that put Obama and his campaign on their heels? Heck, they're picking Romney's tax records to death... turn the tables. I think this would be VERY powerful.
On Romney's Website - they have a Contact Us selection that asks for opinions and suggestions for Romney's campaign. I used it yesterday and got an immediate "Thanks for your suggestion" reply. I realize it was a "canned" response, but it is entirely possible that real people are reading the suggestions and might bring the really good ones to the campaign leaders. Your suggestion is stellar and deserves to be brought to Romney's campaign heads. Good luck. Great suggestion above. Really like it.
Go for it!
I'd love to see all 50 states go to Romney... pipe dreams perhaps.
Newt had a bunch of great ideas. This was one of my favorites.
I sent it to Romney's campaign yesterday. Thanks again.
You're welcome! What you suggested is what Newt wanted to do with Obama. Newt probably knew as well that Obama would never agree to such a debate (Lincoln/Douglas style). Obama is a coward and only likes to speak in a controlled environment with adoring fans (probably hired by Axelrod) applauding his "greatness". For sure Newt would have chewed Obama up and spit him out. I think Mitt could do the same - maybe not as effectively, but enough to humilliate Obama - which is what he deserves.
The dems are a freaking joke. Their socialist non leader has a forged BC. He has released nothing in regards to records yet they want to make sure Romney and others submit 10 years worth of taxes . I think there are other more important documents to be looked at for any candidate then 10 years of tax returns.
Didn't the Disclosure act just get defeated? Or am I confusing the that with this Bolshoi?
The Democrats have lost their freaking minds. They didn't vet Obama in the least and he has done nothing but destroy our nation since elected. Obama hides and seals his academic records, won't talk about his relationship(s) with domestic terrorists and Communists, wouldn't supply his birth certificate when it was really an issue, and seals the files for Fast and Furious.
Gall and hypocrisy are WAY to soft of words for this insane obsession. This is borderline criminal imo.
And the polls keep this race way too close between this monster and Romney - how can Americans even trust let alone like Obama after all this crap? I am so mad at this stupidity... ANYTHING but what's important in this election. All this is, is a major distraction from just how bad Obama has been as an American and a pResident.
You're not alone in being "pissed". Americans have been dumbed down, seriously.
Today a Fox poll says that 50% believe bo deserves....DESERVES to be re-elected.
How can that be possible?
Lol... yesterday was a bad day. I was mad and yelling most of the day while the news was on.
If these polls are true, then win or lose in November, this country is already gone.
The bad news: With Obama wiping his butt with the Constitution (again) and allowing illegals in our country with no fear of removal or incarceration; with him lawlessly bypassing Congress (again) and abusing EO to revamp welfare and addict more moochers on the public dole; with his continued divisive campaign and complicit media (who is helping to keep America distracted from what is really important), it's not hard to imagine the dumbmasses being deaf, blind, and hypnotized by our imperial ruler.
The good news: I believe most Tea Party patriots have avoided the polls and their opinions aren't reflected. If true, this gives a false sense of security to Obama and hopefully liberals/progressives and the ignorant left will stay hope thinking it's in the bag. But I believe the Tea Party will rise en masse (even if it's behind this horrible GOP candidate) and vote this monster right out of office (same with the Senate and House).
Obama is a traitor to this nation, a criminal, and a liar. He NEVER should have become our President. Satan is really twisting the minds of the lost and the weak.
Reposting this cos it's relevant to our feelings that Romney needs to do a lot more aggressive ads - and the trouble is, with 0zero outspending him hugely in the 'swing' states, crap like this can get through and accepted as fact. Wondering why Romney's being outspent? John Hinderaker via Byron York over at Powerline:
"Campaign finance laws. Romney officials believe this is the most under-reported aspect of the ad war so far. Until the Republican National Convention, which begins August 27, Romney is forbidden from spending the money he has raised for the general election. Instead, he is using money left over from the GOP primary race. Of course, Romney spent a huge amount of money — about $85 million — to win that primary race. Even though he has been raising vast amounts for the general election, he doesn’t have gobs of cash to use right now. Obama, on the other hand, didn’t have to spend any money winning a Democratic primary. The result is that Obama is hugely out-spending Romney in key states. A recent Washington Post report said Obama has outspent Romney in Florida $17 million to $2 million, as of July 6. The numbers in Ohio were $22 million to $6.5 million, and in Virginia, they were $11 million to $3 million. That is a huge, huge advantage for Obama — not unlike the advantage Romney enjoyed over his Republican rivals during the primary season."
The left seems to find new ways of displaying their hypocrisy and tyrant leanings daily now.
If they don't get what they want, the imposter in the WH gets it by fiat and the leftists in congress decide they will just make up a new law....never mind they're there to represent us, and not their political tantrums.
Mark Levin's going off on this right now - time for Senate and Congress critters to bare their all too. Especially Pelosi, Kerry, Reid.
Scumbags, the lot of them.
Hmmm, if the Senate has time for this, perhaps they could take a few minutes out of their busy schedule to pass a budget - seeing how that is one of their chief duties in life. Not important enough, Harry? Hmmm...
How about legislation requiring full disclosure of any donations to Presidential candidates from foreign individuals, companies or governments.
Good. Now the GOP CONTROLLED house should introduce legislation that would require presidential candidates to release ALL of their college transcripts.
This proposed legislation is:
A) A sign of Democrat desperation
B) Another in a long line of diversions
C) Innuendo used as a weapon
D) Pure hypocrisy
E) All of the above
