Bain & Romney's Tax Returns:
Democratic Party Leadership Continues It's Latest Stupid Attacks
Actual picture being shared 'round the Net by actual dumbasses
Say, just how many fact-checkin' organizations have debunked this whole 'Romney was still secretly running Bain' attack the Dem's are now into their 2nd week of flogging?
Washington-Posts' The Fact Checker? CHECK!
Even Polit-Fact, the joke of the fact-checking universe due to it's blatant partisanship, has to admit Romney wasn't running the company after 1999; the best they can manage is saying the claim is HALF-TRUE because Bain is still Romney's company because he created it & his name still appeared on paperwork as the CEO:
Yet here we are, 2nd week of the Obama campaign relentlessly shilling an attack that's already been thoroughly DEBUNKED.
But wait, it gets worse!
The past week the Democratic leadership decided to put out a totally baseless accusation on the basis of their Bain attack that Romney could be a FELON because he might have lied to the Securities & Exchange Commission by secretly running Bain behind the scenes after claiming to have left it.
What evidence do they have of this?
Not a shred. Not a jot. Why, they don't even have a dot!
But has lack of evidence ever stopped these people from flinging wild accusations around?
So this past week we had DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi all leading a loud call for Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns.
Because there are serious QUESTIONS, you see.
Now Romney files his taxes with the IRS every year just like everybody else that pays taxes. 1/2 the country doesn't pay any federal income taxes, but Romney is part of the 1/2 the country that does.
Had there been any irregularities Romney's tax returns, the IRS would have announced it by now. You'd have already heard about an investigation.
So apparently the IRS thinks Romney's tax returns are just fine and dandy. There's no problem with them. He's already released several years worth publicly, and the Democrats have had fun with mis-reporting some of it, like the 'tax break' the Romney's supposedly got for Ann's dressage horse:
Consider the amount of mis-information & lies they managed to spread off that one 'fact' they gleaned from a publicly released tax return, you can imagine why Romney would be hesitant to release more for them to scrutinize for attack material.
But let's stop for a second and consider the 3 Democrats presently leading this charge to try to intimidate Mitt into releasing more of his tax returns.
McClatchy Newspapers asked Wasserman-Schultz, Reid and Pelosi if they would publicly release their own tax returns.
Wait, do I have this right?
DWS, Reid & Pelosi claim they have submitted all the proper forms to the IRS, the IRS ain't complaining, everything was found to be fine, so why in the world would you NEED to see their tax returns.................and then they turn around and screech loudly about their compelling NEED to see what Romney is HIDING by not publicly releasing his tax returns and floating the absurd charge he might be a 'felon'?
Do I have this right?
Listen: if there was something wrong or irregular with Romney's tax returns, the IRS would have announced an investigation by now. Apparently Romney's taxes were perfectly fine and everything was found to be legal and aboveboard.
AND THIS IS THE SAME EXCUSE THESE 3 SHAMELESS DEMOCRATS GIVE AS TO WHY YOU CAN'T SEE THEIR OWN TAX RETURNS.
"My taxes are fine, the IRS hasn't found anything wrong with them & WHY ARE YOU ASKING SO MANY QUESTIONS?? LOOK! OVER THERE! MITT ROMNEY! HE MIGHT BE A FELON! GET AFTER HIM, ASK TO SEE HIS TAX RETURNS AND LEAVE US THE HECK ALONE!"
It's July and their reduced this kind of shameless, baseless BS already? Fine with me. I'm not complaining at all here. This is just SUPER FANTASTIC. If this is the kinda lame stuff they've been reduced to in July, by October we'll be REALLY having some fun.
