Obama Releases Searing New Clip, Returning to Romney's Tax Returns: VIDEO


The Obama campaign has put out a new video reminding folks that Mitt Romney is still hiding his tax returns.

Watch the new clip, AFTER THE JUMP...

ReidMeanwhile, in a new interview, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says that a Bain investor told him that Romney "didn't pay any taxes for 10 years.":

"Harry, he didn't pay any taxes for 10 years," Reid recounted the person as saying.

"He didn't pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that's true? Well, I'm not certain," said Reid. "But obviously he can't release those tax returns. How would it look?

"You guys have said his wealth is $250 million," Reid went on. "Not a chance in the world. It's a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty well if you don't pay taxes for 10 years when you're making millions and millions of dollars."

Andrew Sullivan notes that the claim is most likely BS, but politically-savvy BS, pointing to analysis from finance expert Don Primack:

[Reid's rumor] sounds like something out of a junior-high cafeteria, but then again there’s also an easy way for Romney to knock it down. Which again raises the question: What can possibly be in the returns to make them so dicey to release?

  1. Saywhat...hopefully, you not talking dance poles...the numbers with the margin of error are neck and neck and typically are until mid September, so relax.

    This country does not need four more years of "nothing." The young college graduates need to be doing more than flipping burgers for $10/hr living at home with mama. We don't need more welfare cases, and as a small business owner, we don't need Obamacare!

    If you are lazy and enjoy your $10/hr mindless job, then BAMA is the lever you will need to pull when you go and vote...if you can read the bus schedule and find your way to the voting precinct.

    Good Luck!

  3. Even if Romney has not done anything illegal in regard to taxes, the returns will show how many tens of millions of $$$ he has contributed to the Mormon Church. That will upset his Protestant Christian fundamentalist supporters who see Mormonism as an unchristian cult.
