Is Mitt in the 47 Percent? Did He Get Amnesty?

One the right-wing's standard tactics is to accuse others of doing exactly what they are doing themselves to deflect criticism. For example, after a Republican National Convention laced with lies, Romney prepared the world for his lying during the upcoming debates by stating that the president was going to lie.

So, could it be that Mitt Romney is actually one of "those people" who benefit from government money, who do not pay income taxes, who receive amnesty? We already know that many of the people in Romney's ads that decry government assistance received it themselves. Why should Mitt be any different? After all, he is just a regular old Willard, isn't he?

Now that Mitt has trashed half the country for not paying taxes, we are entitled to know whether Mitt is in that half or not.

The only way to do that is to do what his father told him: release 12 years of your tax returns.
