Obama Ad Zeroes In On Mitt Romney's Tax Returns: VIDEO


The release of Mitt Romney's 2011 tax return provides Democrats with plenty of material to use in their efforts to raise red flags about Romney's economic ethics. Among the details found in the documents and included in a new Obama campaign video called "What else is he hiding?": Romney has "substantial investments" in a Chinese oil company, owns stock in a Russian oil company and is "betting against the dollar" by investing in foreign currencies or "stashing" funds around the globe in "notorious tax havens".

The narrator also takes on Romney for limiting the number of financial statements he's willing to release. Even his father, the viewer is reminded, released 12 years of tax returns.

  2. Willard "Mitt" Romney is a snake.

    Apart from all the issues with his finances he is also a MORMON. Mormon's support polygamy. He is OK with multiple women being married off to one man but he won't let tax-paying, law-abiding gay adults marry even one person ! He is a liar and a hypocrite in all aspects of his life. How can such an evil man be in a position of almost becoming the President ? The whole US political system is a disaster.

  3. IMPORTANT TO NOT LET MITT'S LOOKING BAD KEEP US FROM WORKING FOR DEMOCRATS... the other side does not care what you think of them, they just intend to win any way they can.

  4. Yeah, maybe pays about 14% on reported income, but does not address the total lack of taxes paid on all his off-shore holdings. So 14% becomes something like 4% once you consider ALL his income.

  5. Why is no one talking about Lyin Ryan's release the same day? He amended his 2011 returns because he "forgot" to count $61,000 in income. And he's supposed to be the financial boy genius of the GOP.
