Six More Republicans Who Want To See Romney’s Tax Returns

Mitt Romney’s latest excuse for refusing to release his tax returns — his complaint that Senator John Kerry’s wife “has hundreds of millions of dollars, [and] she never released her tax returns”  — isn’t gaining traction. Perhaps this reflects the fact that when he became the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, Kerry released 20 years of tax returns — exactly 19 more than Romney’s lone 2010 release.

Romney’s continued reluctance to resolve the tax issue has led to increasing demands from both sides of the aisle for him to “stop demanding an apology” (as Republican strategist John Weaver put it) and finally come clean. Last week we noted six Republicans who want to see Romney’s tax returns, and as the candidate has ducked and dithered, that number has swelled.

Here are six more prominent Republicans who want the truth about Romney’s secretive finances:

    Its nice to know that there are at least six courageous Republicans.

    • Gammaanya

      maybe because the re election is coming up – they have to kiss up to keep their job in this economy of their own creation (filibustering). Now Romney father was born in Mexico, who knows if Romney was born there and they came overnight to US and register his birth???!!! Mitts have relatives with dual citizenship Mex/US and they will vote for Mitt. They will get a jobs in Gov. if he become POTUS.

    • I agree, what a giant step for mankind!!

    • I am much more interested to see OBamas school records and how much money and jobs he has sent overseas with solyndra ge and gm than what Romeny has to make his firm and stockholders a sucess.

      • jarheadgene

        If that is your biggest worry in this election, you are misguided. Think about how a couple of weeks back, Dick Cheney had a fundraiser, For ROMoNEY, at his Ranch Palace in Wyoming, then a day or two later visits the Pentagon to make a speech whose main purpose was to secure DOD funds for “the next war”. A day or two later ROMoNEY is in Israel speaking of war with Iran. ROMNEY is PROFITEER of war. LOOK OUT.

        • Thanks so much for that INFO., but most people will not understand what
          you are saying. The Rups all ways starting wars but they nor their kids
          are in none of the wars. Romney have 5 sons not one of them are in nor/ have they been in the service. They are home getting RICH while our sons and daughters are fighting to keep this Country safe. Romney is a PROFITEER like all the other Republicans presidents before him. War
          is MONEY for them.


            Heeey, if you don’t WANT your sons and daughters fighting to keep this counrty safe —-DON’T SEND THEM!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU HAVE A CHOICE!!!!!!!!!!! THEY HAVE A CHOICE!!!!!!!!!

            Today—-the people that sign up to go in either do it for the LOVE of their country or they do it for the education they can get.



            NOT someone that has never worked or ran a business or
            someone that is only good at talking and putting on a show. We need someone that can get the job done.

      • GE was sending jobs overseas long before Obama came to office, I know because job went there under George W. Bush’s administration in 2000.I think that is eight years before if my math is right so, what is your proof that he (Obama)sent all manufacturing jobs overseas hmmm? Or is your rhetoric born of something else?

  • louielipshitz

    When is Obama going to release his college transcripts and admission forms?

    • martykayzee

      Which other president released his college transcript? Please point me to the link…

      • DurdyDawg

        Well, let’s hope it’s merely a little sarcasm from the belting the Dems received going on four years now on the Pub end concerning Obama’s birth certificate, then his law qualifications, then his college credentials THEN his elementary report cards while trolling about trying to find someone who even knew him in Hawaii while seeking the truth behind their desk in Philly or NYC or where ever the hell pubs congregate.

    • When can I see yours?

      • Don

        I have a BFA from Texas Christian University as well as an MA from Jersey City University in special education [the blind] and a minor in speech. How about the rewst of you huh?

        • If you’re interested, I have an MBA from Arizona State University. I graduated Magna Cum Laude.

          • DurdyDawg

            And I graduated first in my class from the prestigious school of hard knocks.. Do we have to show each other our under wear? Who cares where you received your doctorates or your masters or your expulsion from junior college, that and a buck will get you a cup of java on this forum.. It don’t take super intelligence to post on forums like this, only common sense and a little wisdom and we all have that so quit slapping each other over the head with diplomas and salutations.

        • DurdyDawg

          Then why aren’t you on a podium trying to run for chief cheese head? I bet you’d make a better contender.

    • Don

      I wonder why BO needs to do this. I know he can’t practice Law as I understand it. Maybe God knows something. God, by the way, is not happy with either candidate, as one does not say he is a Christian and the Mormons do not believe in God’s Son nor they believe in God because GOD WILL NOT ACCEPT ANYONE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN HIS SON[I have trouble typing as i hunt and peck due to BET (Benign Essential Tremors) similar to Parkinsons and of course you don’t see me stuttttttering when eye type]

      • Of course he could practice law if he wanted to. He still has his law license and is in good standing. What tea partier told you he can’t practice law anymore? And the reason why President Obama and at least 6 other Republican congressmen are asking for more of Romney’s tax returns is because for the last 30 years EVERY Presidential candidate has handed over at least 10 years of tax returns — so that’s why.

      • DurdyDawg

        @Don… That’s okay, your typing is just fine ‘lil buddy.

        (the reason I included @Don was because I replied to a good number of posters, went out for a smoke then re-accessed this article again and found several posts out of sync with who I was referring to.. what a rip-off). Is it just my system or is others experiencing this?

      • jarheadgene

        I did hear Obama speak of his “coming to the Lord” once, he is pretty close to the vest about it, for some reason. He spends a lot of time defending Islam, the non-violent, (non-extremist)types, to stay politically correct. If you remember, Bush did the same thing after 9-11. And yes you’re right MORMONISM IS NOT CHRISTIANITY. also GOD IS NOT A REPUBLICAN, nor is he a democrat.
        If I had to say who I would vote for based on The GOOD BOOK….it would be Obama…..see Mark 12.4: 12-44. Also the Book of ACTS strongly suggest Socialism.
        IT is not a “dirty word” nor is “liberal” Jesus was liberal.




      • Don

        Oh, I didn’t knowthat George Romney was born elsewhere, where, Mexico?

        • jarheadgene

          Yes George Romney was born in Mexico.

    • No president has ever released their college transcripts & admission forms. None of them ever had to release their birth certificates either — except for President Obama. So, stop being silly.

    • Peoples425

      Please help me to understand why this would be pertinent information for the public to have at this point especially considering that no other president has been required to do the same.

    • DukeDacat

      Hey Lipshits, Why do you need Obama to release his college transcripts and admission forms?…………………….
      Is this the best defense you have for Mittens stupitity????

  • I think we should also have a copy of his birth certificate. Isn’t it standard for a Presidential candidate to present his birth certificate? (No! Not until President Obama ran.)

    • Don

      Did I hear that MR had relatives in Mehico?

      • Eagle05


      • Romney’s DAD, George was borned in Mexico .


          • Mr Cameleon

            No, it was his Father that was born in Mexico, not his Grandfather.

          • Tom

            Doesn’t matter,,,,McCain was not born in America,,,,stop dirnking the TEA-BAGGERS KOOL-AID

      • YEAH HE DOES

    • He has released it Wendy! Do your homework before posting!

      • That wasn’t his real birth certificate, but a forgery!

        • And you know this for a fact because….?

        • lexi001

          I thought this article was about Romney? Here we go with the nut jobs having to bash the President at every turn. If this situation were turned around and Obama put out one year you would be going absolutely bonker’s. You choose to ignore the crux of this article. There is definitely something to hide. To bring up Kerry’s wife, who does happen to be a multi-millionaire and question why she didn’t release her tax returns, you have to be an idiot. She wasn’t running for President! Kerry, as stateded, released 20 years!! Sorry guys, but if there truly was nothing to hide this would have been a no-brainer for him.

      • Motown, Wendy didn’t say anything about President Obama not providing his birth certificate. Her sarcasm was directed at Mitt Romney and a requirement that he ALSO should be required to show where he was born. After the hell President Obama was put through she’s grinding a bit of salt in the Republican’s wound.

      • republican122

        yeah a nother fake one any person with a laptop and software can take off the layers of fraud that obama had posted on that fake birth certificare. even the text on the certificatte was different. hahahahah you fools

      • herbee

        I heard it was fake…

    • totenkatz

      McCain also showed his birth certificate and believe it or not so did Reagan because he was born in a US Territory before it became a State.

      • McCain was borned in Panama.

    • Was it the real one ????????

    • northnsgiddon

      You are exactly right we definately should have a copy of his birth certificate. No other presidential candidate was ever ask to presidential candidate was ever ask to present a copy of there birth certificate until our superior President Obama ran. But if God be for us no man can be against us. It was definately God’s will for president Obama to be elected and has been doing well and he will do great for the next 4 years.

  • Johntheoldguy

    I’ll bet his veep candidates are requested to release more than two years of tax returns. Mitt had to show John McCain 23 years’ worth. Look who McCain picked instead.

    • JSquercia

      Certainly tells you something ; doesn’t it

    • McCain Rather Pick A NUT Rather Than A THUG And Either Way He Would Have Lost Anyway !! But There’s Must Be Some Bad Crap In Them Tax Returns!!!LOL

  • He needs time to cover up some stuff,hang on.

    • Never thought I’d agree with a Broncos fan lol! You hit it right on the nail Shore.
      Soon as his corrupt lawyers can find a way to make him look “clean ewwww”
      he will say “see? What was all the fuss about? Obama has it out for me!”

    • DurdyDawg

      Now THAT is the honest truth!! He’s got lawyers up the bung and they make their living manipulating paperwork.. Your absolutely correct Shore. Now, let’s make the IRS audit every year he produces against their records and then we’ll know what the fox in the hen house really is.

  • 1standlastword

    This is a serious matter as it goes to Mitt Romney’ character as a person and values as a member of the community of his fellow Americans.

    He seems to fear being judged harshly!!

    Transparency is a hard mother to those who love the lime-light and have perhaps something to hide as it appears Romney does

    If he fails the smell test at this juncture who can carry the Republican banner to November?

    • Don

      I know MR’s son speaks fluent Spanglish.

    • Couldn’t agree more. This issue of Romney’s tax and SEC filings with regard to Bain are weighed against his qualifications to even BE an honest executive/CEO of a corporation much less to attain the height of the presidency. If this issue is not cleared up prior to the Republican Convention, I don’t see how anyone could stand in support to nominate Romney? If he is covering up something and that something is against the law, then Romney’s first stop is a Court of Law. Reminder, The Boston Globe refused and did not retract their findings with regard to his Bain departure/involvement after 1999. And even prior to this, his opponent in the race for governorship in Massachusetts had brought this issue to light but it was not questioned the way it is being done now. Truly, it is a serious matter!

      • catball

        He won’t invest in his own country, sends his money over seas. But, wants to be president?

    • Bozo the Clown would fit right in there with the republicans.

  • Don

    It is either BO or MR and neither fits the bill. One was good when he started, then got money while the rest of us were unemployed. The other has his money stashed abroard and I can’t see either getting the golden ring. I like BO but not MR but at this tyme I am quite undecided. MR seems to hiding his taxes or the reports. Doesn’t the IRS have copies of these tax forms, but I guess it would be wrong of them to release these documents and as such I probablly will vote for BO but maybe write in my vote of BB [giess who?]

    • I hear you when it comes to jobs. Obama and the Democrats have been trying, but get nothing but roadblocks and filibusters from Repubicans. On the night of Obama’s inauguration, Republican Congressional insiders met and mapped a strategy to “show united and unyielding opposition to the president’t economic policies” from day one. And the Republicans in Congress have pretty much succeeded. Obama had an “American Jobs Act” last fall that would have put as many as 2 million construction workers, cops, teachers, and firefighters back to work (at least that’s what the economic forecasters said) — but the Congressional Republicans dynamited it. In Obama’s more recent “Bring Jobs Home Act” which includes a 20% tax credit to businesses to help pay for costs associated with moving jobs located overseas back to America. The act would also close loopholes on companies that continue to ship U.S. jobs overseas by disallowing a deduction companies currently get to take when they outsource jobs — again the Republicans have stonewalled the Democrats on this jobs bill too. The worse the Republicans can make the unemployment rate, the better they like it. Based on what they are doing in Congress, they obviously are not for jobs for middle class, working class or working poor people. By their actions the Republicans have shown that they do not care about those people. They are only interested in winning elections. The Republicans have tried to overturn the Affordable Care Act 32 times — they tried again this past week — well after the Supreme Court voted as constitutional. 32 times! That is what the Republicans are spending their time doing — not trying to improve the job situation in America.

  • drslipro

    Now the tables have turned it doesn’t feel to good does it?


    • Have not heard anything from the Birthers lately . Are they staying out of the news and trying not to rock the boat for a little while?

  • ord

    It doesn’t matter if he releases them or not as the American people won’t care . Money is
    what matters and he has the money to buy this election. Ane he’ll do it.

    • jarheadgene

      NOT IF YOU USE YOUR VOTE PROPERLY. The ONE thing that scares the ELITE class of this country is that we all share equal votes….1 vote 1 person. Why do you think they brought back “JIM CROW” voting laws?

  • See, I told you there were fair-minded,decent and law -abiding citizens to be found
    within the Republicans. Thank you for doing the right thing guys. If there is no ulterior
    motive involved my dear Mitt, get on with it and let’s move forward.
    Graciously yours,
    Connie Witter

  • He has already flip flopped too many times for me to vote for him now, no matter what he comes up with. I just hope he is not able to buy a change to the IRS records.

  • Romney Is A Spoil Little Rich Thug Who Think He Can Have It He Way But Boy He In For A Rude Waken!! Romney Don’t Want To Show Them Cause Those Tax Returns Cause McCain Saw Them And He Took Take A Chance With A NUT( Sarah Palin)Rather Than A Thug(Mitt Romney)!!! LOL There’s Pain In Bain So I Say Mr. President BRING ROMNEY THE PAIN!!! LOL Either Way McCain Was Going To Lose Anyway!! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012 And Vote Out All American Taliban Members!!!

  • Where’s The Jobs Ask Mr. Strip And Ship And He 1% Thugs They Ben Shipping Them Overseas For Years Now For The Cheap Labor!!!

  • Teddy Parker

    Romney’s grandfather was forced to leave the states because as a Mormon, he was practicing polygamy, which was unlawful. That’s why Romney’s father was born in Mexico.

  • cycodad

    This is the coward that said he was for the draft and for the Vietnam War but skip out of the country to avoid both. He was suppose to be a missionary. This is the coward that said his sons were serving their country by helping him run for President. This is the coward that has done nothing for this country yet he thinks he can be a leader. This is a COWARD of super portions of yellow down the front and back…..His name is MITT ROMNEY.

  • Why arent these 6 Republicans demanding to see Obama’s Harvard grades & transcripts, or a Birth Cirtificate with foot prints like every other American has? His Tax returns are not the business of any politition.

    • Joseph Hemphill

      unmitigated idiot on the loose, you and Rush bangin’ oxy ?

    • johninPCFL

      Because they’ve already been released? Maybe Limbaugh’s butt is in your way and you can’t see…

  • Joining the discussion of Mitt’s Mexican connection: Mitt’s greatgrandfather, along with thousands of other Mormons, fled the United States in the 1880’s because polygamy had became a felony. Miles Park Romney arrived in Mexico with 5 wives and 30 children.

    George Romney, Mitt’s father,was born in Mexico; George Romney’s parents were monogamous and the family returned to the US during the Mexican Revolution in 1912.

    “Polygamy was not just a historical footnote, but a prominent element in the family tree of the former Massachusetts governor now seeking to become the first Mormon president.” Associated Press, February 24, 2007

    • jarheadgene

      RUNNING away from another war like all the ROMNEY’s unless it’s to send someone else.

  • Barack Obama is a liar and a clueless half wit. He has done absolutely nothing but sling trash at everyone else. Remember in 2008 it was Hillary, now Romney. The only thing this prick has not done is told the truth or accepted accountability for the complete failure of the economy under his administration. Why is he not talking about the fast & Furious where Brian Terry lost his life? Because the lying SOB issued an executive order to protect himself, Eric Holder, and Janet Napolitano. Barack Obama is the biggest enemy facing America today. If you have read Obamacare, it states in there 21 seperate times thats it’s a tax. This man is a disgrace to the White House, and he is a disgrace to the US Constitution.

    • Landsende

      Obama inherited one of the worst economies on record from George W. Bush. Even with all the roadblocks the teapublicans have put up the economy is gradually improving. Could it be better? Yes, but that requires the cooperation of the teapublicans who have pledged to make Obama a one term president no matter the cost to the nation. As for Obamacare which is based on Romneys plan, Romney called it a penalty not a tax. Have you read what’s in Obamacare. Children can be kept on parents insurance until they are 26, can’t be turned down for pre-existing conditions, no lifetime limits and preventative care are just a few of the benefits. Hospitals and doctors offices will not have to eat the costs for the uninsured which is then passed on to those that do have insurance. If anyone was a lying SOB it was GWB and now Mitt Romney. If he has nothing to hide he should release his tax returns for the last 11 years and a birth certificate that is not stamped “copy” to prove he really was born in the United States and not Mexico.

    • johninPCFL

      What an idiot. Reagan raised taxes 13 times and you didn’t care. Romneycare is identical to ACA and you don’t care. The black man in the white house scare you?

  • I agree, along with tax returns from the last 10 years, he should also submit his birth certificate–one that can be valoidadted of course. Maybe we should send some investigators down there and interview some Mexicans who might swear he was born there? As far as taxes go, anybody who wants to see them, might have to see if he’s filed any in Swizerland and/or the Cayman Islands as well (just kidding–or am I?)

  • jerder

    Whenever a candidate, prominent businessman, bank, financial institution, hedge fund or investment firm, refuses to release any tax returns with the exception of 2011, then something is up. If everything is, or was above board, Mitt Romney would not be refusing to disclose other tax returns, and other information about his earnings, whether those earnings were from work, investments, etc. But then his tax return from 2011 WOULD BE OKAY since Mitt Romney had decided to run for the presidency months earlier and he had time to clean up his act. And who knows, there are plenty of high paid and powerful accountants who are able to alter or clean up income tax documents, investment documents, etc. Look at the financiers, mortgage companies, and banks like J.P. Morgan, Citi Group, Sally Mae, and Countryside, etc. who were involved in fraudulent activities until they got busted in 2006-2007 and whose books LOOKED fine yet were set up to cover up their embezzlement, mismanagement, and other unhanded or illegal activities. For enough money there are a lot of accountants, tax lawyers, etc who could alter Mitts financial info. to cover things up. I do not think, at this point, if his money trail is disclosed by Mr. Romney, that I would even trust those documents to be the truth.


  • rockinthebayinFlorida

    Something sure is smelly about him. Is he hiding funds off shore somewhere? Sure looks that way…Note the convention is still 6 weeks out…he is not even the “official” candidate, yet, and he is having this many problems? Oh boy! Needless to say, the Repubs are not very happy with Mitt in the first place…he seems to be the lesser of all the evils. I would have a problem voting for a man who I don’t “know” anything about. Especially the fact that he is NOT keeping his loot in an onshore bank among other thing.

  • DurdyDawg

    All these ‘pubalubs’ are following the phony baloney job script but their still missing the point:

    “He should release the tax returns tomorrow. It’s crazy. You got to release six, eight, 10 years of back tax returns. Take the hit for a day or two.” (Bill Kristol)..

    Take the hit for a day or two? WRONG!! If what we think are in those returns, he’d be lucky to run for cover, much less the presidency, and these pin heads think it would all blow over in a day or two?.. How gullible. Romney isn’t hiding these returns because of some misdemeanor, he’s hiding them because there’s something BIG that the Dems can ride to the white house on. Even when these bozos lose they think it’s a win.. I guess it’s because they don’t take “NO” for an answer (their 33rd attempt to bust Obamacare attests to that). If they think the public is fooled into thinking their doing their job by concentrating on one bill then they truly are an ignorant lot.

    • You are probably right. Americans have very short attention spans(especially me) but we can not possibly let this guy get away with this. It is kind of amazing how long it has taken for him to start getting heat about his obvious shortcomings. Maybe the media needs the drama or maybe the ad execs need all the money being absolutely wasted on this campain

      • DurdyDawg

        OR.. Maybe the masters say, “It don’t matter what you say Mittens nor what you’ve done, our rebel yell. ‘Anybody but Obama’ will see us through”.. Like I said, even loss feels like a win to them because they’ve got their call word to get ’em through.

    • jarheadgene

      VOTE THEM out remember which Repubs i.e, McCONNEL, Boehner, Ryan stood in the way of PUTTING AMERICA BACK TO WORK……Can’t we write the AG and ask that he charge them with Obstruction of some kind.

      • DurdyDawg

        But who could we replace them with? The next three waiting in line who’s time has come to fleece and lie to the flock? As long as we have a lax (or rather no) penalty for wrong doing or lack of progress, they will keep thinking their above the law and continue the corruption. Both parties are guilty of underhanded tactics but it’s the individual, not the party (which takes away their responsibilities).. A voter should never elect on party but individual.. It may take a little more time to decide but if you do your homework first, all you’ll have to look for is the name AND it will give you a deeper understanding of who you’re actually voting for. Then again, I’ts been rumored that some people can actually whistle through their ass hole.

  • he’s hiding something!

  • SaneJane

    I think Bentley is back tracking already. I didn’t think he was brave enough to see it through.

  • It is clear good old Mitt is hiding something. I guess it is easier to project instead of telling the truth. He attempts to be a master at manipulation. Attempts only, he is very poor at it. His behaviors at that of a spoiled child.



    Show you my what?

    I’m Mitt RoMoney head American Taliban Republican plutocratic, obstructionist, rich old bigoted white guy. I don’t have to show you anything if I don’t want to.

    Ask George W. Bush, if you don’t believe my special privileges.



    Just like James Carville said this morning, “Now that we have had a good look at the real Mitt RoMoney, we can understand why McCain picked Sarah Palin.”

  • jimmiethec

    Hard to believe the quality of candidates the Republicans are fielding these days. Ill equipped ethically and intellectually, not to mention, morally. What is this one trying to hide? Well geewillikers! Mrs. McCain didn’t have to show her tax returns. Makes me yearn for an Eisenhower, or even a Reagan. Money and power aside, what a snivelling excuse of a man this is!

  • Betty Merry

    Any Republicans out there that wants to see proof that Obama and Romney are ELIGIBLE for the office of POTUS?

  • davia55

    oh brother…we have a president right now who never had a birth certificate til he became president, and he won’t release his college transcripts that shows he applied as a non resident. So, who gives a crap about his tax returns.

    • johninPCFL

      Do you have more teeth or IQ points? Obama’s BC has been certified by both the Az sec of state and the Hi sec of state.

      • davia55

        and that doesn’t surprise me in the least. What do you think the most powerful person in the world could do, if he wanted…lol. Make a BC appear….nah….lol

        • johninPCFL

          Yeah I’m sure the GOP secs of state are both shaking in their respective boots.

      • CAThinker

        Davia55 has the same amount of both… that’s how he keeps track of his teeth…

    • rmarqua2921

      And exactly where do you get the information that Obama “never had a birth certificate til he became president”? Don’t worry, the republicans tried everything to discredit him before he ran, including examining his birth certificate! Your lack fo intelligence is showing! Where is there even a smidgen of evidence he applied a a non-resident? You need to either put up or “shut up”!

    • Justin Napolitano

      I can’t believe how people like you go about their lives each day, davia. It must be tiring being so hateful and dumb. It sure is tiring to those that run into your writings.

      • davia55

        Nope, not hateful or dumb. I am curious

  • davia55

    you can have a copy of his birth certificate…..It showed up as soon as he became president…what a miracle…lol

  • davia55

    and barak hussein obama isn’t an American, so whats your point?

    • johninPCFL

      And Romney’s Mexican. What’s your point?

      • davia55


        • johninPCFL

          George Romney was born in Mexico. Look it up sometime. Nut.

          • davia55

            Just checked Wikipedia! George Romney was born in the USA , he and his family lived in Mexico for a church thing. This is how gossip begins, I was sucked into it too before taking two seconds to check it out lol

          • johninPCFL

            Appears not. George Romney was born in Mexico. Note that none of the appologists for G Romney EVER asserted that he was born in US territory.

            “By May 1967, U.S. congressman Emmanuel Celler, a Democrat who chaired the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, was expressing “serious doubts” about George Romney’s eligibility.

            The next month, another Democratic congressman inserted a lengthy treatise into the Congressional Record in which a government lawyer – writing in a “personal capacity” – argued that George Romney was ineligible for the White House because he was born outside U.S. territory.

            The New York Law Journal published a lengthy argument by a senior partner from Sullivan & Cromwell, one of Manhattan’s elite law firms, arguing that the fact that both of George Romney’s parents were U.S. citizens clearly established him as a “natural born citizen” who was eligible to be president.

            George Romney himself was unequivocal.

            “I am a natural born citizen. My parents were American citizens. I was a citizen at birth,” he said, according to a typewritten statement found in his archives.


  • I hope that people understand why they will vote for Mitt Romney. Stop and think about if you really want this man for our president. It could be the biggest mistake to elect him.

    It is an outrage for Shifty Mitt Romney not to have been prosecuted for perjury by the Securities and Exchange Commission and others. No statute of limitations for murder and fraud and perjury or lying under oath falls under fraud while governor. Shifty Mitt Romney is hesitant to reveal his sources of income in his billion-dollar empire securely-protected and hidden offshore in unknown banks of countries famed as tax-havens. It’s not amounts that Shifty Mitt is so sensitive and fearful about but discovery of his multiple sources of income opening himself up for prosecution and lawsuits. Any income tax returns that Shifty Mitt releases are questionable at this point unless they come directly from the IRS. Shifty Mitt’s clever accountants have had way too much time to doctor his income tax returns for the past ten years a la Enron. If Shifty Mitt had gotten away with perjury as Massachusetts Governor at Securities and Exchange Commission and other government agencies, local, state, federal, tax evasion, crimes and misdemeanors for more than 25 years, can you imagine the unbridled monopoly, absolute power and total control he and his undisclosed billionaire bundlers, here and abroad, could wield nationwide and worldwide, if he were elected President of the United States of America, the most powerful nation on planet earth? Catastrophic to 99 % of 350 million Americans! God forbid!

  • Wilfred Mitt Romney, named after Wilfred Marriott of the Marriott hotel chain, is so puffed-up and arrogant he thinks that he has the right to do and say as he pleases without questioning. Of all the good candidates in the Republican party how did they ever come up with this guy! He is an unmitigated disaster!

  • Obama simply needs to keep the pressure on until poor Willard breaks. He’ll eventually have to supply the tax information that will show all americans what these goddamn billionaires do for our country. If there is a profit without any prophet to be made that does not gel with what this country needs, then, oh well, too bad. It’s the business, stupid. When will americans learn this. Did insourcing illegal latinos to work as cheap labor help the U.S. Not really, but it sure as hell helped restaurants, agricultural corporations and farms, etc. It was the cheap labor, stupid. And, actually it was BETTER if they were illegal, because the bosses could whip their asses into gear and they had best shut up about overtime with no time and half. Time and a half for an illelgal latino? You’ve got to be kidding. This went on for 30 some years all showing that capitalism needs poverty to prosper, and the poverty is either in India (so it’s outsourced) or in Mexico, etc (so it’s INSOURCED). No rocket science here, just U.S. corporate profit seeking…Willard knows this only too well. He’s Willard “The Mitster” Romney, boy cultist and hoarder of U.S. money….until he can get it into the Caribbean or into Switzerland. Go get ’em, Willard.

    • Very,Very well said. This gets to the heart of a lot of problems,but nobody,nobody wants to bring it up for fear of pissing off illegals(I guess) Capitalism does not absolutely need poverty to prosper, But we sure got lotz of people who think it does. ( This point is also well said. I never thought of it quite this way) The old saying is we need to lift all boats but this may never happen

  • Remnants of what the GOP used to be. What a cast. Now we know why DONALD TRUMP never ran.

  • Its great to see we have 6 stand up Repubilcans in the party. In the begining i felt mitt was just stalling in order to make the democrates look like fools when he would show 20 years of tax returns, and he would closer to the convention. Mitt theres a lot of people in the USA that wants to stand with you only if you are for the right thing. Honesty, I can not stand with you Mitt if you are doing things undercover, and i want to believe you are a rightous man Mitt, show the demoracts 20 years of tax returns ,and make them shut up Mitt.

  • LeftRightLef

    Last time it was the “unvetted” Palin that cost an election. This time, the shady finances of Romney. How can the GOP expect anyone to vote for their candidate when they obviously don’t bother to check them out BEFORE they create a spectacle?
    Where there’s smoke; there’s fire. Where there’s hesitation; there’s a problem.
    Now I want to see 20 years’ worth. Verified by IRS.
    The “trust” is gone!

    a change in the right direction?

  • davia55

    Mitt’s Dad was Mexican, Obama’s Dad was African. Let’s not lose sight of the big picture here. Who can do the job? Obama has been doing it for 4 years, has you life improved? Has the country mproved? He has spent trillions, and your children’s children will be paying off this debt, was it worth it?

    • Sam

      Much as I am inclined to cutting down (Gotta watch that word “destroy”) Romney every which way I can, one must kind of stick close to the facts. Mitt’s dad was not Mexican, although he happened to have been born in Mexico. George Romney was born a citizen of the United States, to American parents. He legitimately ran in primaries against Nixon for the Republican nomination in 1968. That wouldn’t have been possible had he been born Mexican.

      • rmarqua2921

        And Obama would not have been elected President of the USA if he had not been born in the USA or been born African!

    • rmarqua2921

      The big picture is that “Mitt’s Dad was Mexican, Obama’s Dad was African”? Wow, I want to read the rest of your comment, LOL!

    • Justin Napolitano

      Yes, my life has improved and the trillions spent was mandated by Bush when he decided that wars and the part “D” drug program didn’t need funding.

      • In the 2009 fiscal year — the last of George W. Bush’s presidency — federal spending rose by 17.9% from $2.98 trillion to $3.52 trillion. Check the official numbers at the Office of Management and Budget.
      • In fiscal 2010 — the first budget under Obama — spending fell 1.8% to $3.46 trillion.
      • In fiscal 2011, spending rose 4.3% to $3.60 trillion.
      • In fiscal 2012, spending is set to rise 0.7% to $3.63 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office’s estimate of the budget that was agreed to last August.
      • Finally in fiscal 2013 — the final budget of Obama’s term — spending is scheduled to fall 1.3% to $3.58 trillion. Read the CBO’s latest budget outlook.
      Over Obama’s four budget years, federal spending is on track to rise from $3.52 trillion to $3.58 trillion, an annualized increase of just 0.4%.
      There has been no huge increase in spending under the current president, despite what you hear

      • davia55

        I wish you and everyone else copying and pasting those stats would check into them firsts. This was one of the great deceptions of this government. Plus, you have to remember, as much as this administration likes to pull the “Bush” card, the final say on everything that went on comes down to congress (which the Democrats had control of since 2007) Anyways, to get back on point about your silly stats, here is what the Wall Street Journal had to say about those very stats……..““There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration. It became apparent some weeks ago when the President talked on the stump – where else? – about an essay by a fellow who said spending growth [under Obama] is actually lower than that of previous Presidents. This was startling to a lot of people, who looked into it and found the man had left out most spending from 2009, the first year of Mr. Obama’s Presidency. People sneered: The President was deliberately using a misleading argument to paint a false picture! But you know, why would he go out there waiving an article that could immediately be debunked? Maybe because he thought it was true. That’s more alarming, isn’t it, the idea that he knows so little about the effects of his own economic program that he thinks he really is a low spender.”

      • davia55

        My last response didn’t post, so here I go again. You and all the other Obama supporters should stop posting these bogus numbers. They came from a fairy tale essay sent to the Prez. Here is what the Washington Post had to say about those very numbers….““There is, now, a house-of-cards feel about this administration. It became apparent some weeks ago when the President talked on the stump – where else? – about an essay by a fellow who said spending growth [under Obama] is actually lower than that of previous Presidents.

  • Governor Romney wants to be President of USA, but it is not easy .

    He needs to understand more « la politique de prestige » of the presidential function.

  • this guy has more teeth than a white shark mitten

  • he is a real macho . he compares himself with kerrys wife , did she looks to be president , this guy is a real joke , he is very funny , he should look for the presidency in his neightbourghood , lettuce face , mr fake smile

  • paulhobbs

    Gov. Romney and his surrogates are trying to characterize these questions as “swift-boating.” That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The “swift-boat” attacks were flat-out lies and smears on the part of campaign surrogates. What the Governor is experiencing are straight-up questions on the part of a political opponent regarding the truth about his record. It’s the record THAT HE’S RUNNING ON. He’s supposed to be the genius businessman who’s going to straighten out our books, so he ought to be able to proudly answer questions about his taxes, or how he got $100 million into an IRA. If he’s been following the rules, I don’t see why that’s such a big problem.

    • catball

      Romney says he doesn’t know who has his money or where it is. Now do you want someone in charge of the US Treasury that doesn’t even know where his own money is placed? Not me.

  • Mitt Romney has not as yet been declared the presidential candidate of the Republican party. He’s only a presumptive candidate. At the rate he’s going now , he would have a hard time running for dog catcher.

  • Sam

    “Hey, Mitt ! Wish UR cut Bain ! Wish UR cut Bain !” — That’s my bumper-sticker ! Little fishing pole, can of worms maybe, to remind of the original.

  • Sam

    I’m sort of still hoping that Mitt’s little get-together with Bobby Jindal yesterday in Baton Rouge will help him see the light on ‘disclosure’. ‘Reform’ and ‘openness’ in government is all Jindal is about down here (Lol), and he could have shown Romney some real vice-presidential grit yesterday by advising him to turn over all the income tax stuff. So I’m still hoping (Lol) that Mitt will turn everything over fairly soon. It’s probable he just has to ‘sleep on it’ an extra day or so…….Or am I just being naive here ?

  • davia55

    Don’t know why my comment didn’t show, retyping. George Romney was born in the USA, and move to Mexico on a church thing until the Mexican Revolution. He and his family moved back to the USA which was during the depression. Take a second and read about it in Wikipedia. Very interesting man, and family.



  • Hay, Romeny prove that your an American by showing your birth certificate. Also, when you lose this Election please get lost. Eight years running for an office that pays $350,000, and you being a zillonaire, what is the real deal. Get lost!

  • I want to see Obamas school records and exactly how much tax payer money went over seas with solyndra GE and GM. I am much less interested in what Romeny has done with his money than what Obama has done with the nations money.

    • rmarqua2921

      So why don’t you do your research or are you too lazy to get the facts? You should be able to go on line and get all the facts you want! Do you want Romney’s school records too? I don’t! I didn’t want Bush’s either! Four years ago Obama was vetted when he ran for President! He disclosed all his tax returns! And don’t think for a moment if there would be any glitch in Obama’s past we would already know about it! People like you didn’t want a black man in the White House! It’s Romney’s turn! And now we hear that the Koch Brothers bought Ryan as his running mate! You better get your boys vetted or they are certain to have some problems come November! Even intelligent Republicans, notice above, surmise Romney is hiding something not so good! What kind of person are you who wants him to hide things from the people he expects to vote for him?

    • Justin Napolitano

      School records are sealed by law otherwise some of us would look up yours and show that you were not an overachiever.

  • Agree with Wendy-I want to see Romney’s BC-his original-also his last 20 years of taxes.

  • Romney seems to have something to hide. We all want to know what is so important in those tax returns? Romney’s wife sure went on the defensive.

  • Why Governor Romney doesn’t want Amercan voters know about his tax returns?
    But the GOP should say something !

  • McCain seen 23 yrs of Romney’s tax returns,he knows whats in them,Romney gave them to McCain in 2008 when McCain was vetting Romney as possible VP pick ,,,after Reid’s comment about Romney not paying taxes for 10 yrs,,,don’t you think its rather strange that we get no comment out of McCain,McCain is being very quiet,,that sends out a message loud and clear,,,i believe Reid has more to come on this subject,he is giving Romney enough time to step all out in his poop,

  • VictorCraig

    I told everyone, from the beginning that Romney cannot be trusted.

    I love being right.

  • Ceunei

    Huh, almost a month later, and the Romster still hasn’t released his tax returns to “you people.”

    Some dude…he thinks he can put us all up top his vehicle in a crate for twelve plus hours on a journey along with that dog he so disliked…

    Crate ’em up, let ’em crap all over themselves, and, I’ll wash over them with my big ol’ hose, he is probably thinking…

  • to me every officials & presidents election , everybody got to show their tax returns in between latest 5years to the public before being nominated as a legal contestant in the political race in wherever states they are in ! As for those voters, produces valid ID,before the voting’s doone, in order to make sure, illegals & non-valid (dead persons) IDs’ are being uses for the votes here in the States!

  • What is it that Romney fears Americans will find out about ?

    1. Investments in companies that promote war because they supply arms, equipment or personnel.

    2. Investments in foreign companies that compete with American companies.

    3. Money hidden away in foreign countries (Tax Havens) to avoid paying taxes.

    4. Very low paid taxes because of loopholes and tax rules put in place by the very rich. Lower rates than middle class citizens.

    5. Immense wealth accumulated by preying on weak companies and firing personnel.

    6. That he has investments in the private health care sector.

    7. Investments in companies of questionable ethics that contradict his “public image”.

    8. Donations

    9. Sources of income – involvement with many companies


    The above are just some of the possibilities.

    Perhaps others can add to the list.

    Just Saying !!!

    • Sand_Cat

      I agree with your sentiment, but I’m not sure Bush’s motivation was not even that generous: the evidence indicates he just wanted a quick, cheap military victory to gain “political capital” and silence those continuing to point out his draft evasion.

  • Max Keiser said in a recent interview that his tax records will reveal that he’s worth Billions, not the 250 million that’s often quoted. That’s the only way he could be earning the interest money amounts he is. Do we want a billionaire in the White House? Subsidized in getting there by more billionaires?

    I’d like people to focus more on what he ‘believes’. The Mormon Church has some pretty whackjob ideas about reality and the afterlife, AND they believe that prophecy says that one of their own will enter the White House and take over the US government (no lie!)

    And why does Mitt want the Presidency so much? He’s supposed to get his own planet after he dies and is resurrected. Isn’t that enough?

    And what’s he gonna do when the red phone rings at 3 in the morning and he has to go down to the Situation Room to handle some dire military emergency? Chuckle like he always does? Let’s face it, there’s no ‘there’ there. He can’t even get himself a job, he hasn’t worked since 2000, except at running for president, and it’s obvious he’s ill prepared for that. Look at who he’s surrounded himself with. His advisors are all GWB minions.

    • Justin Napolitano

      He wants to be President so that he can validate the life he has led. He wants to be President because all of the money and life style he has is empty without fame. He wants his name to be up there with the rest of the Presidents. He can’t stand the idea that a black man has achieved the Presidency but he hasn’t. In Romney’s mind Obama is inferior to him and doesn’t deserve being the most powerful man on the planet. He will lie, steal, sell his soul and do anything to become President. His actions have made that very clear to the most of us.
      I find that someone who wants something so bad will do anything to achieve it and doesn’t matter who they step on to get it.

  • Just curious, but what’s the statute of limitations on assault and battery and impersonating a police officer? That would be in Michigan and California, at the very least; maybe more states.

    And some intrepid reporter should ask Mitt why in the world his father would have ‘given’ him a Michigan police uniform? I think the elder Romney was smarter than that, especially since little Willard had the reputation of being a ‘prankster’, AKA a felonious brat. I think we can be pretty sure that this future Elder of the Mormon Church stole it to fulfill some very weird and kinky fantasies.

    Someone should also ask Mitt how these ‘pranks’ played out. What happened after he pulled people over with a flashing light on the top of his car, and walked up to their window with a cop uniform on? Did he chuckle and point and say, ‘jokes on you!’? Did he order them out of their car and strip search them? Did some of these people turn up missing? After all, this is a favorite tactic of rape-murderers, including at the time when Mitt told people he was doing this. All in all, this has not been investigated anywhere near fully enough. Why do we give politicians in expensive suits a waiver when it comes to obviously illegal behavior?

  • You_must_be_kidding_me

    This guy wants to be president but doesn’t want us to know anything about him other than spin and window dressing. Didn’t Nixon say “I’m not a crook”. Rommey says trust me. Reagan said trust but verify. America what do you say?

  • Romney should agree to release one years tax return for a properly certified, legal copy of Obama’s birth certificate.

    • Give it a rest, you wouldn’t know the truth if it bit you in the ass!

    • Sand_Cat

      And would that convince you and the other morons? Of course not! Just one big liberal conspiracy among the Obamas, the Kenyans, and the Hawaiians.

    • When are you idiots to get over it. If he couldn’t legally be President of the United States, how long would it have taken the Republicans to have him impeached?
      Taxes don’t have a da## thing to it. Classic Republican attitude, we don’t want them to go after him for that, so we go after Democrat for something totally different. Deal with it.

      • Justin Napolitano

        Like I would believe anything that comes from the Republican party. The fact is the Republican party of the past is long dead and was replaced by the insane tea party.

    • Justin Napolitano

      If someone shoved a certified copy of Obama’s birth certificate up your ass Donald, you still wouldn’t be convinced. The reason is simple, you will never believe anything your stupid mind is shown if it conflicts with insanity.

  • Brendan Hegarty

    I could not understand why he was refusing to release them as what could be in them thats any worse than is being speculated on. I just read an article that may answer that question.

    The higher cost in releasing them may be that they prove he is guilty of voter fraud. This is the claim in an article by one of the UKs broadsheets, the Guardian. They say that he voted in the special election called after the death of Ted Kennedy. To vote you had to be resident in Massachusetts. However, before the election, he had sold his house in the State and bought one in California. He claimed that he had returned to live in Massachusetts, and was living in the basement of his sons house.

    You read that right, a guy worth hundreds of millions of dollars choose to live in a basement. Apparently its hard to prove or disprove whether or not someone is living in someone elses basement. However, some of the tax returns in question cover the period in question. If they show his address as California then hes guilty of a felony.

    Given the zeal with which the Republican party is combating voter fraud around the country, surely they would wish to see the returns published in order to dispel this allegation.

  • Idiots! what the hell does his tax return have to do with being president!
    When your a business, you invest your capitol ( spend money of your own ) to then depreciate that purchase (devalue it”s worth ) . That way i can keep you employed .By buying a $100,000 piece of equipment & depreciate it for 5 years my company benefits
    $20,000 per year. THAT IS THE WAY BUSINESS OPERATES ! So get your tax numb brain
    on track. And numb nuts wendy we did”t have a birther problem before this kenyan

    My login IS CORRECT! You don”t have the guts to let me in

    • Sand_Cat

      Just can’t restrain yourself, can you? Call us idiots? If you want to see the biggest of them all, try your mirror.

    • How about honesty, his own father released TWELVE YEARS,
      2010 he paid ~$3 million, that’s AFTER all the deductions, donations to charities of any kind, is deducted from a person’s gross, not net income. If he paid $3 million and the rate was 13.9% how many millions was his total income? He “CLAIMS” he understands what’s left of the middle class, is going through. The really frightening thing about that, there are people that actually believe him.

    • Justin Napolitano

      Sorry bill but if you are a public company you do have to show everything about your business.
      Mitt wants to run the United States executive branch of government where he will have to answer every conceivably question presented to him by the American public. I suggest he get used to the idea that a public person is not entitled to a private life.
      Show us your tax returns Romney!

  • It is so evident that Mitt Romney is HIDING something, if not he would proudly show America that he is a law abiding tax paying citizen. In my opinion America should demand that he show his tax returns for the last 6 years, if not get out of the race. Every person running for office of President should show at least 6 years of tax returns. Mitt has that rich man mentality I will give you what I want take it and shut up. Look I am rich I could buy you ten times over so don’t question me>

  • There’s a big difference between what’s legal and what’s right. There’s only one reason he won’t release them, it would cost him votes.
    Ann Romney said that “releasing more tax returns would just give the Obama campaign more ammunition to go after her husband with”
    “more ammunition to go after her husband” if he didn’t do anything wrong, why is there ammunition?

  • I agree, he should release his tax returns if he has nothing to hide. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM? I think it is great that he is a wealthy man but he should follow the same protocol as other previous candidates. Too, he should pay taxes the same as we pay taxes between 25 and 30 percent. I also think that he should not give tax breaks to the wealthy while the majority of Americans have to pay the majority of taxes at a higher rate. I thought about voting for him but since I heard Clinton and his analysis of the facts, I do not trust the Republicans. They protect big business and ensure that they get the breaks even at the expense of the majority of Americans.

  • Comment Removed

    So I see all of Romneys Tax Returns for the last 10 year , just how does that help me find a Job?

    • Justin Napolitano

      Easy, the Republicans will have to get off of their fat asses and help President Obama pass the many jobs bills he has presented to congress like the last one they defeated giving jobs to veterans.

  • mit Romney dosen’t want the rest of the country to know how he took advantage of loop holes that are only advalable to people in his tax bracket. For instance how dose his IRA contain over 100 million dollars?, when the rest of us have limits has to how much you can contribute. And explaine the swiss bank account? I can go on and on

  • Well…
    I think it really is one of those moments where REALITY has reached even the Republicans.
    If you want the job, fill out the application — the application in this case is all the tax returns so far being withheld, while seeking the job of president.
    Obama’s clearly accurate and clearly presented birth certificate has been waged war upon by the very people who were arguing that Mitt Romney didn’t require equal scrutiny.

    Now they are.
    Because he does.

    Perhaps he requires MORE scrutiny with all his money in foreign countries highlighting a horrific conflict of interest for him between America and his tax havens.
    Bible [Matthew 6:24] says, “”No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
    This is true.
    And note that this unresolvable conflict is not merely limited to being between God and Money.
    It occurs everywhere where there is two polarizing interests at work upon a person.
    A man seeks to be president while he is heavily vulnerable to foreign influence.
    So much of the Romney’s wealth is outside our nation that he can be blackmailed by those foreign nations to act against American interests.
    And America is the ONLY remaining Capitalist country in a predominantly Socialist world.
    So any influence will likely NOT be palatable to a lot of folks.
    Of course, such might not be PROBABLE (as in likely) but it is POSSIBLE.
    Can anyone out there really say they are comfortable taking that chance?
    This inherent weakness in Romney proves that choosing him is the most dangerous choice for America.

    • Justin Napolitano

      If you can’t trust Romney to tell us about his taxes how could you trust him to run the country? His stock answer is that I have plans for the country but I am not going to tell you about them is total Romney and total Bullshi*.

  • sheilab2

    Every day I realize that electing this fool would be disastrous for the U.S. He has never had a real job-only siphoning off money from corporations and into his hidden bank accounts. Why don’t we see his tax returns? Because he either lied like crazy or didn’t file at all or he has more money than he admits. I don’t want him anywhere near the White House unless it is to pull weeds in Michelle’s vegetable garden. Oh right – that would be real work, wouldn’t it? He should only open his mouth to change feet. Shut up you idiot ! !! ! ! !

  • Shel_In_GA

    Romney’s attitude: I am not, should not be, required to expose myself in any way to the lowly people. Trust me.

    My attitude: I don’t trust any politician, operative, or talking head – Left or Right – without verification.

    • BrooklynLass

      I agree with your take on this. Romney was the head of a company where he “answered to no one”. He is not used to people not just asking, but demanding answers.

      If he is asked a question he don’t want to answer, whether its about taxes or a political policy, he just refuses to answer. He is no longer sitting at the head of the table in the corporate board room where he does not have to answer questions but from anyone but people just like him who are may be only asking how many people he had to fire so they will have more money left in the corporate coffers so they could buy a another mansion or perhaps just a yacht.

  • She is not running for the highest office in the nation. Show your tax for at least 10 years and be will know why you have to keep coming up with stupid answers.

  • Now Republcans know how President Obama and other Democrats felt when they were demanding he show his birth certificate. He SHOWED it, and they still didn’t believe it, even when the Governor of Hawaii stepped in. However, Mitt Romney is definitely hiding something, or he would have no problem whatsoever turning over as many tax returns as is necessary just like eeeeeeeeeeeeeeevery other Presidential candidate has been required to do. He clearly believes he does not have to follow the same rules as the rest of the country. The article about how he and Bain Capital profited from 9/11 reminds of me of how Dick Cheney profited from the war in Iraq with Haliburton.

  • President Obama DID release a properly certified, legal copy of his birth certificate. The Governor of Hawaii verified it’s authenticity. I think where a lot of people get their knickers in a twist is that his father’s name is also Barack Obama, and HE was born and still lives in Kenya. Republicans won’t believe it when a certified copy of the birth certificate is presented, so what the hell exactly do you people want? You’d find a reason to cry like little girls no matter what he produced.


      YES—he did release one birth certificate and everything on it was wrong—
      from calling negros african americans—-
      to a hospital that wasn’t there then—–
      there were other problems!!!
      Who ever he paid off to make it for him wasn’t thinking to clearly and back 50-years ago.

      • Justin Napolitano

        Stop making shi* up alll, it is boring.

  • realitycheck4us

    To pass out Romney’s other taxes would give the Dems cannon fodder until the election.
    He proved himself with the one he gave us now let’s get on with the economy and foreign policy.

    • Justin Napolitano

      No Reality, he didn’t show us shi*.
      Show your tax returns Romney, the little people want to know!

      • realitycheck4us

        Get a life.  You must be a democrat.  He showed us more than Obama has told us the truth about his college records.  Any thing you can do to divert attention from the failed leaders policy helps you win.  Stay on that track and we will be trashed.  I have written him and told him not to release any more taxes because it will just give people like you a reason to divert the attention from the important issues.  He has already paid more taxes in what he has shown us than you will in your lifetime.

  • So far Romney has so far not even disclosed a single year’s taxes in full. Even for 2010, while Romney claims to have fully disclosed the return, in fact two critical parts are missing: the FBAR form and the 990-T, both dealing with offshore accounts and the use of foreign tax havens.


      Whoooooo Cares about Tax returns?????????? I don’t think its ANYBODIES business,

      The way they nit pic every presidential candidates, it’s no wonder NOBODY good runs!!!!

      Who cares what someone did in Kindergarten—Jr High or High School!!!!! WHO CARES IF THEY EVER HAD AN AFFAIR—-WHOOOO CARES!!!!!!!!!!!!

      This has become ridiculous the way they pound and pound on the candidates!!!!


      If Romeney made money some where sooo what—-IT’S HIS MONEY!!!!!

      Most people HATE to see anyone be prosperous—-WHY????

      Work hard and you can do it to!!!!!!!!!!! Don’t sit around and wait for it to come to you!!!!!!!!!!! 

      Nothing ever happened to who Obama appointed for his cabinet—-

      Al Franken and Charles Rangel exposed for their serial tax evasions—–

      WHY DO THEY THINK THEY DON’T HAVE TO PAY TAXES???? They should have been thrown in jail.
      Charles Rangel failed to report seventy-five thousand dollars in income!!!!!!!!!


      Al Franken didn’t pay his taxes in eighteen states or whatever it was at the time. I mean just absurd.

      Tom Daschle had to withdrawl his nomination for health secretary because of his failure to pay taxes—-
      Nancy Killefer, who was appointed chief performance officer and deputy OMB director, also withdrawn because of non-payment of taxes——

      The Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner non-payment of taxes—–

      The Obama administration has loaded up on lobbyists; several of theses people for these positions have been exposed as tax evaders.

      Not so long ago, Democrats ran on the “culture of corruption” issue.

      Who knew that was actually a campaign promise?

      • Justin Napolitano

        I care and so do millions of people. How you make or made your money is important when you want to run for the Presidency. Romney’s own father said it was important to show your tax returns so people can judge your character. If he. say, made millions investing overseas and then tells us how he will create jobs in the US, well, it smacks of hypocrisy. If he did some things that are questionable, tax wise, then he may have the IRS take a fresh look. The fact is that based on the latest tax information he released where he didn’t take all of the deductions to the Mormon church so that he could say he paid at least 15% taxes shows that he is a liar, at best, and a cheat at worst.

  • Rush Limbaugh is not only a mental case but is someone with a delusional mind . He is gripped by extreme envy and jealous of the extreme nature towards President Obama. Limbaugh shows his mental illness by the constant shaking of his arms. That is a very clear clinical sign of some form of schizophrenia or some manic state of his mind. Limbaugh feels outdone by President Obama and the only way he can feel good about himself is by, in some way hurling what he considers to be hurting insults to the President. It won’t be long before this guy is incarcerated in a mental asylum. Normal and reasonable people do not shake their arms in agitation the way Limbaugh does. That constant wringing of the arms and loss of speech in the middle of talking clearly shows a serious mental derangement. This is a man who calls a young lady a slut just because she has had the audacity to express her views on issues of national importance. It is not everybody who manages to get to Law school, obviously Limbaugh couldn’t because of his drug addiction. His own mother admitted that the fella flunked in everything. His mother must have been so distraught for her to come out saying how academically poor her own son was, such that he flunked everything! The fact that the lady Limbaugh called a slut is a law student is evidence enough that she is an intelligent woman and a lady of good standing in society. Limbaugh is a little spineless twerp and a socially objectionable character. How dare he attack a lady on airwaves knowing very well that that lady has no similar airwaves to answer back the serious abuse hurled at her by this craze lunatic? He may be a conservative supporting Mitt Romney but it is people like him who make Romney look even more mysterious and questionable in everything they do and say. Rush Limbaugh shame on you for being so openly racist, a bigot and worse than a mad man in an market place.

    • Justin Napolitano

      I do believe that Rush and others heads will explode when Obama win re-election.

  • ANN

    Oh my ..Dear Mitt so far you have been down and dirty. You asked for Obamas birth certificate,well you got that. Now were are asking your taxe’s.? Are you afraid that your shoe size has out grown your mouth. You can be a real trooper and tell the truth for a change.
    I wrote him letters and never recived a answer. Went to face book page it gets hidden. Oh well….


    Ann—It ONLY took Barack Hussein Obama four years to finally get a birth certificate that wasn’t all chopped up and remade in print artist and he still can’t show his college transcripts and nobody remembers him in their class!!!!!!!!!
    Have you read how many millions Obama has sent to Kenya or
    How many millions are missing and unaccounted for???
    Or “HE” was the one that got Osama Bin Laden!!
    Or that “HE” has made alllll these jobs—how did he do that??? Build factories or what????
    We have NOT doubled our exports—like he says
    Or they didn’t know anything about the Libya attach—they had warnings
    He also said: My father served in World War II.
    He also said: USA producing more oil than ever before
    OMG—I could go on and on–

    Do some research!!!!!!!!!!

    • Justin Napolitano

      You like making stuff up so much alll, you ought to be a fiction writer instead of a paid Republican hack.
      Nice of you to point out all of the things his administration has done. Too bad you can’t hear or see because he almost never says he did something; he gives credit to the many people that made things possible including the killing of Bin Laden. Of course you must know that that raid could not have happened unless President Obama gave the go ahead.
      By the way when have you last shown your birth certificate; not the short one but the long one with all of the proper stamps?
      OMG please don’t go on, I don’t think we could stand the boredom.

  • jjrjon

    Maybe Romney’s daddy is an illegal alien, he was born somewhere in Mexico. Let’s see the papers.

  • Mr Cameleon

    Obama may not be the perfect President, and Congress is certainly more guilty then any President in how things are done in this Country, but having someone like Mitt Romney in office is begging for war, more Wall street corruption and the Statas Quo waging class warfare on the Middle Class. This Corporate money whore (Romney) sent thousands of jobs to China. Actions speak louder then words. And yes it happened when he was at Bain Capital, not AFTER like he touts. He needs to show his Tax returns for the past 15 years to prove he is who he says he is. Ask people at Staples and Sports Auhtority how much they make hourly? If that doesn’t open your mind nothing will.

  • lana ward

    Everything about Obama is under a 2 million $ seal. We still know nothing about him, where’s the outrage??

  • I am so tired of people like Wendy Alke…who doesn’t seem to be too intelligent…asking for Obama’s birth certificate…do you realize the scrutiny that the federal government puts you through…come on you dummies…he showed his birth certificate…get over it..Wendy Alke why don’t you insist on Mitt showing his tax returns as even many republicans are asking for especially during the time he headed the Bain Company…those are really the serious issues at this point..get over your mental illness and get off the meds that are harming your memory…ahhhh

  • Canistercook

    The 6 only suggest it knowing that there is a need to get over the jealousy so present in the left wingers. We know Romney ran the profitable Bain Company, we know Romney makes good income, we know Romney made good use of the legitimate tax laws as do most executives. So what else can the National dig up to try and support their candidate? Rmney does not need to work and could sit back and play golf, but he has chosen to go to work because he is concerned about the direction our country is heading in.

  • If I were in the Obama campaign team, I would make a song with a chorus “release your tax return Mr. Candidate”. In fact, I would do this on Nov. 4, 2012. Hypocrite, you stinking hypocrite, you gonna pay the price someday!! . . . So says the Jamaican, Jimmy Cliff

  • nobsartist

    willard is hiding is tax returns because he is in business with the RED CHINESE ARMY and is hiding money in Bank of China accounts.

    mccain knows it, thats why he picked an idiot like palin.

  • still doesnt answer the fact that romney wont release tax returns for 2009 whenhe got amnesty/even his republican comrads are asking. MUST BE SOMETHING AWFUL

  • pc1654

    Mitt Rommy, Trump, T Party, Congress and all of his Trillionaire Cronies will screw each other in every way and turn around and screw the Nation! Trump wants a big screw from Mitt so that he can try and stay in business! That’s why he’s so desperately trying to bring Obama down by creating outrageous stories so that the haters can believe it! And this also keeps him in the limelight! But he can’t stop what’s meant to be, no matter what he says or do! Remember, what goes around comes around and hurts 10 time harder! So, all you Pharaohs out there who think you are GOD, find the Scripture and read it! You’re going to need it!

    A Concerned Citizen, with love for our Country!

  • If Romney released tax returns it might show that he made $15 million on the auto bailout.

    • More likey would show hundreds of millions of dollars in off shore accounts that cant come to the US unless he pays taxes on them. Just like the other people he supports… Corporations.

      • Eleanor

        Why the hell worry about it now???Your choice is in office. Let’s see if you love him as much in 4 years as you do now, when we are totally broke financially, militarily and in body and soul. Won’t be a pretty sight, I am afraid. Frankly I don’t give a hoot if a man has money running out of his ears, I just hate hypocrits, who accuse one of the same thing they do. And btw, why is the Government being sued over the disappearance of millions of dollars paid back by a bail out entity and no one knows where the money is/was or what happened to it. Sever high-up officials named in it.

  • a80a

    what the hell does kerrys wifes money have to with romney showing his tax returns? she is the heir of the ball fruit jar fortune. romneys fortune is from screwing people out of jobs by closeing the plants and sending their jobs overseas.

  • Romney holds a preachers license.Preachers don’t pay taxes! I think this is the reason Romney won’t release his taxes, because he didn’t pay any tax.He is using the church to hide behind and cheat the Americans out of millions of dollars.He is a total loser and a huge sinner. He is not a Mormon!

    • Eleanor

      Who ever heard of a “preacher’s License??” I knew most ministers have to be ordained, after completing their schooling/training, but a license??? Preachers do have to pay taxes on income, most have to have a regular job to be able to be a “preacher” Jeeze, I don’t like that word in today’s society. It reminds me of long ago days when people formed their own church following one who “preached” the word. We call ours ministers or pastors. The church is usually exempt from taxes as most are a non-profit-church. You need to research, and if I am wrong, tell me and I will gladly apologize.

  • Who wants to bet he now goes home to one of the Massive Houses and files an update to his return, claiming all that he could, knocking his percentages closer to 10 than 14 percent he pandered to the public.

  • loverboy12no

    His not releasing his tax returns told me that he has something to hide. I feel confident that there are quasi legal tax dodges that he and his high priced tax accountants have used. Put under a microscope, they would not have passed the smell test. Of course, there just is the possibility that his total taxes paid was so low that it would have been embarrassing. I also believe that he gave more money to his cult religion, Mormonism, than he paid in taxes. I cannot believe that we allow these large tithing gifts to be entirely written off his taxes. The guy is just not trust worthy or credible. Thank goodness he is not our President.

  • Now the IRS can Make a Investigation to Him.Why Not? Because is Rich? Why only the Middle Class the IRS investigate .Something is Wrong ,Noe Mr Obama can ask about the Tax Return to MR,If something is Hide everybody has to Know,who was the Candidate of the Republican Party.Behind Each Fortune ,has a Black Spot.

  • jstsyn

    That was July of 2012. It is now March of 2013. Guess his thinking he didn’t have to release them showed his arrogance and needless to say……..he LOST.
