The issue is, was and will be jobs.

But if Romney can't be forthright about himself, why should anyone expect or trust him to be forthright about doing what's best for American jobs?

We already know that his running mate hasn't been forthright or honest, so Romney's chances are fairly hopeless.

So, Mitt and Ann's excuse for not disclosing their tax returns has been the backlash they would receive if they did. President Obama's campaign manager, in writing, offered a promise not to criticize their returns if they would release 5 years of tax returns. The offer was declined.

No more excuses, Mitt. Show 'em or get lost.

Small-minded = not liberal = Republican. The opposite is broad-minded or liberal. So about tax returns Mitt is dissing his own

speaking of relationships, I just read a piece awhile ago that the Mormons had done Paul Ryan a nice favor. Posthumously baptized his dad, grandpa and great grandpa by proxy.

Wasn't that nice, says the Church Lady?

Mitt's Plan: 10% Mormon Church + 13% U.S. Gov. • Ryans Plan for Mitt: 10% Mormon Church + 1% U.S. Gov. - no wonder mitt picked ryan for his VP...

I think the 10% is part of the 13% - of course Mitt could prove me right, or wrong, by letting us see his taxes.

A family of four could live well on just the $77, 000 per year Romney makes off with for having a dancing horse.

Hey, be fair! You ever price out a horsie tu-tu?

Imagine what the bill is gonna be this year with the trip to Great Britain and all!

Anybody hear anything about Rafalca lately? With no medal at the Olympics I'm sure hoping I don't have to worry where my Elmer's came from!

In 2008, I learned that the average salary for residents of the District of Columbia was $68k so that means a lot of families are living on a lot less in a very expensive city and that average is $9k less than they spend on their prancing pony.

"You people" are "small minded". Arrogance that could carve ice. Both of these flipping liars need to go away. How does GOP vet candidates, anyway? Guess if they have a pulse and can hold a pen they're good to go. LMAO2012

Also, Ryan's plan would make all employees add their health insurance to their taxable income. Ryan plans that would be an average of an extra $11,000 that that we will have to pay taxes on, and he plans to end the tax credit that employers get for the part of health insurance they pay (giving employers to cut health care insurance off), So we either lose our health insurance or pay taxes on a tax bracket 11,000 higher than it is now.

Oh, and the Ryan budget also exempted members of Congress from paying taxes on their health care benefit.

Reading between the lines, I can see Willard isn't actually lying. What he is saying is that if you add up all the individual percentages he has paid in the past 10 years, they would add up to 13%.

Very good point! He is oh-so careful to extract a nano-shred of the truth and rework the whole story. Thank God he's religious or we wouldn't get even that much from this snake.

Queen Ann says they won't show any more taxes... we people have seen enough.. .if more are submitted, it would only provide more ammunition against the Willard royal highness family. Talking about ammunition>>> Lyin n' Ryan ARE the weapons of mass destruction Georgie Porgie has been looking for... they are an accident waiting to happen.

I see it as more of an entitlement mentality. It's Mitt's turn to be president. We don't need to show any of his tax returns. Mitt has admitted that if he presented his returns, not to mention his plans for the country, no one would vote for him. And yet we are supposed to trust him.

I do not trust anyone that won't come clean.

If you think workers are earning too much money, if you think future retirees should have less access to healthcare, if you think social security should be turned in to social insecurity, if you think the military-industrial-complex is short of money by a couple trillion, and if you think Mitt's scandalous pile of tax avoidance schemes isn't big enough... well then Mitt-Paul is your guy.

On the other hand, if you have a clue, vote for Democrats and Progressives! Across the board!

8.3 unemployment. 23 million Americans looking for work. 16 trillion dollars in debt. Spending 4 billion dollars A DAY more than we take in, Obama borrowing 43 cents for ever dollar he spends, more Americans in poverty than ever before, more Americans on food stamps, National Credit Rating downgraded for the first time in history, becoming the next Greece = Progressivism.

It could be worse. Before you complain about the numbers in 2011 take at a look at the numbers from early 2008. Bush was the worst President in US history.
05:27 PM on 08/17/2012
Go get them!!! They are a disgrace to our country and anyone who votes for them are out of their freaking minds. Open your eyes and ears and take in what they have done. They are bought and sold and will now have to do what is told of them and they will not care about us. They want another war because that is they way bullies work - they don't care about the lives lost - it doesn't touch them. They are BIG MEN - they start wars. They are SICK!!!!!

Actually, Romney's taxes would be less than 1% under the Ryan Plan. Romney would pay .81%.
