Out of the four non-Christians running for office, I figured the Catholics woulda tithed. Huh. Santorum admitted that he only gave 7 percent but he counted his public speaking discounts as part of his giving. (snicker)

Hey, Pen!s Envy, Santorum did not get the nomination so your point lacks relevance. Besides, he has a large family and a special needs child so no reasonable person could fault his modest charitable giving.

BTW, your handle is utterly ridiculous, as are you.

Jim, Santorum is hilariously un -selfaware and a nut. It's what I love about him. Glad that the people are keeping him away from public office.

btw- I had fantastic handles but too many little flaggits made me change it so I went the obnoxious route. (ScarletPimpernel, Speedicut, BastiatWashington, HarryFlashman)

Yours is ok - I like grilling and bowling's ok.

I agree that Santorum is not ready for prime time. No executive experience...the Republican version of Obama, well, only a tad. There is a lot to like about him and a lot to criticize as well. His charitable giving, however, is like majoring in the minors.

To the point of your moniker(s), a rose by any other name....

don't be silly Marc. I say we take lessons from the Mormon on charitable giving.

Are we voting for "Most likely to give to charity"?
If so, I guess you'd have to elect Romney.

True, MacQ. I'm voting for him out of desperation. Like you Republican Loyalists, I'm not proud of it.

On Friday, as Kevin and Guy both noted, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney released his 2011 tax returns to the American public. Not only did we learn that the former Massachusetts governor paid taxes every single year since 1990, thus discrediting the Senate Majority Leader’s preposterous accusations, but he also paid $2 million in taxes last year alone and gave about $4 million (or nearly 30% of his annual income) to charity. In any case, now that we have these new figures, which presidential candidate paid the highest tax rate and gave the...
