Does the Romney Campaign Need a Reboot?

Not only is Romney unable to release his tax returns and reveal the TRUE tax rate that enormously wealthy people pay, while the middle class pony up 30-40% of their income: He's such a dunce that he publicly says that paying more would "disqualify" him from the presidency. If he ever DOES release them, he's toast because the Republican game of using rich people to deceive regular people about what's in their interest will be exposed, and his idiotic statement will make him look that much more callous about it. If he doesn't, he's got something to hide. Not anything criminal: What he's got to hide is the LEGALITY of his tax rate. He's in a lose-lose situation.

Buddy...what world are you in. I am solidly middle class to lower middle class and have NEVER paid more than 10 -15% effective tax rate. I work in a CPA office and prepare tax returns for a living...and I have a few clients that are considered rich and they are paying the 30 and 40% in taxes that you claim that I am. If you are paying 30 to 40% in taxes then may I suggest you pay for a competent tax preparer?

If you're on the Teleprompter's Campaign payroll to 'influence' sites such as these, they are wasting their money.

Nah, BuddyChrist is just another one of the usful idiots who get free coffee and donuts at the communist seminars, then he gets instructions on what communist talking points to write and on which sites to write them.

He's just another worthless loser who can't get a real job because he's used drugs all his life.

We can't influence you guys at all.

You were born dense and conservative and you will die dense and conservative.

I only hope Huntsman gets the nomination after the GOP purges all the lunatics, I'm excited to try voting R for once.

No surprise someone named giveyouhead wants a free lunch.

The Obama campaign has released a new ad that channels the Senate Majority Leader's tax conspiracy rhetoric.  They don't quite go the full Reid ("ten year tax evader!"), but they're riffing on his basic charge to sow doubts about Romney's tax compliance:


The ad shows footage from a Romney interview with ABC News in which the Republican presidential candidate was asked if he had ever paid a lower tax rate than 13.9 percent. The narrator asks, “Did Romney pay 10...
