Have not heard of such a statement before. Am i missing something? Hope you have evidence to back up your claim. Why should'n he? No law has been broken as far as we know.

Yes on both counts Mr. Prosecutor. Why don't you do a little seach for "Mitt Romney Fraudulent Tax Returns" and see what pops up.

Here, I will start you off with one... But the next one will cost a bit.

That may be the accusation from some, but I am pretty sure he is on record saying he had (closed in 2010) a Swiss bank account and also had some money invested in the Cayman Islands. However, he states all accounts were disclosed to the IRS and so far the Gov't/IRS hasn't accused him of doing anything illegal, so I don't see what the big deal is?

Also, I think I read that he it taxed at a higher rate than 97% of Americans, that he made a 14% contribution to charity and so on. I also think most of his income was actually on investments, which is taxed at a different rate.

The big deal is that some think his taxes are fishy ans want to take a look.

Why wouldn't you want to vett someone especially on the subject of his taxes if he has already lied to you before about this taxes?

I posted it. Do I really need to comment on his video?
It speaks for itself.

As far as the rest of the political rhetoric I believe the
Process speaks for itself. What it says is that the system
Is corrupt and I wouldn't vote for any of them.

Pretty cogent commentary, Terminator...

I used to 'like' Trump, back when I was in Gotham, '74-2000. But, he has become a self-parody, and I have to wonder what his advisors/entourage were thinking in saying, "Sure Boss, that is great idea. Let's pump it up with press PR and then make that 'announcement'. " WTF?!

Obama may have some shrouded past in terms of CV and transparency, and he may have gone about 2 for 32 at bat in his term, but I highly doubt he is some mole or boogie man.

I may toss a freakin coin when I walk in to early voting next week...
The Prez, whomever he is, is not the problem(s) this country faces, imo.

thank you dave...

as they say, don't bring knife to the gunfight... mitt is good but right now is not his time... obama is ok, and we need to have him bring the country back to the center - 8 years of bush have taken us so far to the right that we have become too much leftist - the patriot act alone has brought the US into worse situation than the 9/11 attack itself... i serve in the federal law enforcement establishment and i totally like the ability to monitor every camera that we have at our posts but i am first of all a US citizen, and i can see how the civil liberties are being taken away from us... the country needs to come back to its senses, and needs to steer back into center... mitt will take us into an uncontrolled spin, and we are coming out of Bush spin just about now...
later, when we are ok, then mitt, or someone like that will be ok for the economy...
and, i would propose an 8 year single term for the president, so they do not become lame ducks in the middle of whatever they are doing... i would also limit the money - money is the main culprit in any of the elections that we are having... if a candidate spends a dollar, his opponent can't spend more than a dollar... well... it will never happen...

just needed to vent...
