  1. ThinkAgain: Under the Ryan Plan, Romney Pays 0.87% in taxes

    Mittens gave John McCain's campaign 23 years of tax returns in his quest to be picked the VP candidate.

    What did McCain see in those returns that made him go with Palin?

    Well at least nobody can accuse him of paying no takes in 2011 – he actually paid too much!

    Interesting. He gave several more years than that to Mittens' campaign when he "applied" to be the Lapdog. Now that he is officially the Lapdog, he's applying to be VP but, like Mittens, thinks the American public does deserve to vet him. After all, it's Mittens' "turn" you know...you're all just supposed to fall in line. Now, get to goose-steppin'....

    Well, strike up the band! The guy who "didn't take stimulus money", oh "yes I did.... but......." releases his tax

    Fine. Where is Mr. Romney's 20ll return? Given his wife's comments earlier this week, he apparently does not plan to produce it. Another Romney falsehood!

    It will be interesting to see how Obama/ Biden 2012 turns this into another personal attack. Because that is all they have. Personal attacks. This is their brand of politics. So suck it up, Democrats. It's all you will get from Obama. No plan forward. No new ideas. No goals or objectives for the next term. Just personal attack politics.

    The Ryan choice is EXCELLENT
    Ryan has the courage to challenge Big socialist government programs like Social Security and Medicare.
    Politicians have been deathly afraid to challenge senior citizens on Social Security and Medicare because they are such a powerful voting block
    But Senior Citizens have been feeding at the government trough for too long.
    It's time Seniors learned that nothing is "Free" and that WELFARE FOR THE ELDERLY is no different from welfare for the poor.
    American seniors are just going to have to learn to save their money and rely on themselves in their old age.
    It's time to end the two biggest socialist programs in the federal government....MEDICARE and SOCIAL SECURITY.
    And the Romney/Ryan team is the ones to do it.
    You are going to pay your way now old people, no more free lunch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

    As much as I dislike Ryan, I'm sure he would have no problem releasing more tax returns if he had not been instructed/legally bound NOT to do so by his lying partner on the republican ticket. Releasing more tax returns would place more questions on Willard's reasons not to. This creep has more secrets than good ideas to improve the lives of the American people and we would be much better off without his "help".

    I find it hilarious that no GOP candidate will ever be able to release more than two years of taxes without insulting their leader

    Unfortunately, most 'average' working folks pays more taxes than Romney and Ryan — Not going to change.
    BUT I am more concern about America getting out and staying out of war!
    NOW— I read of Congressman Ryan, Romney's running mate, accusing President of weakness then advocates for "America's military strengths" and going "all out to protect America's allies across the world?"

    WELL, Who is suppose to go, fight and defend America ? The ROMNEYS?

    I don't know if Mormons are exempt from military service? But Mitt wants to be America’s “Commander-in-Chief BUT would he dare have the audacity to send other people children to war while his five young healthy, wealthy and handsome sons voluntarily avoid military service and remain safely at home?
    Remember there is no history of Romney's family military involvement for America.
    his Father George never served —
    Mitt, with four deferments during the Viet Naim, didn’t*—
    and today, none of Mitt’s five sons have ever committed — the family's tradition continues!
    So should Romney/Ryan expect others to defend America when they don't and won't?

    He has done more than Romney, who is still saying he will show last years returns after his accountant messes with them some more during his extension. Ryan releasing two years is not going to stop people from questioning Romney's lack of reporting. How many people would be allowed to just say "I checked my tax filings. Yup, I filed. end of story."

    But I am sure Ryan gave RobMEhood ten years or more. The leader and co-leader of the Free World MUST be more transparent than this – WAKE UP AMERICA!! If they start out by HIDING things, they will end up being bigger LIARS than they are now; if they start out LYING to the American people now, they will "secretly" give back to the billionaires they represent and the middle class die!!
