Obama camp demands Romney’s tax returns from ’80s

 

President Obama’s re-election campaign is calling on Mitt Romney to release his tax returns dating back to the 1980s, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Following a front-page Wall Street Journal article Thursday reporting that employees at Bain Capital, Romney’s former private-equity firm, were allowed to invest their retirement money in companies the firm acquired through a special share class, the Obama camp is seeking Romney’s old tax returns to see if they contain information about the investment arrangement… “Today’s report raises additional questions about Gov. Romney’s manipulation of the tax laws,” Ben LaBolt, an Obama spokesman, told The Journal, adding that Romney “may have engaged in questionable maneuvers to drive up the value of his IRA.”

Romney released his 2010 and preliminary 2011 tax returns earlier this year.

The Romney campaign pushed back Friday with their own request in an e-mail to National Journal: that Obama release the transcripts of all his meetings with world leaders… “The Obama campaign is playing politics, just as he’s doing in his conduct of foreign policy,” Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul wrote. “Obama should release the notes and transcripts of all his meetings with world leaders so the American people can be satisfied that he’s not promising to sell out the country’s interests after the election is over.”

Hey, Romney advisers (note that I refrained from saying, “Hey, schmucks”) – the way you respond is like this:

    The statute of limitations on auditing tax returns is 3 years but can be as long as 7 years. Fraudulent returns are to be kept indefinitely.

    Obama can go frig off.

    Romney should tell Obama to shove that request so far up his own poop shoot that his college and birth certificate would come out his mouth.

    Just sayin’.

    How about the Obama camp kicking down his transcripts, his REAL BC and the student Visa he was given in order to go to college here?

    Romeny should get a big box, fill it full of important looking papers, label the box Mitt Romney, Tax Returns 1980-1989, then duct tape it closed. Call a press conference and put the box front and center. Say, “Here are my 80s tax returns. Obama gets to go over them as soon as I see his college transcripts, a non-fraudulent birth certificate, a non-fraudulent social security card, a non-fraudulent selective service card, and the passport he used to visit Pakistan. If he wants to see my records, I get to see his.”

    When the press starts rending their clothes and gnashing their teeth and hissing about being a “birther,” just say, “I believe this is called leveling the playing field.”

    To the list of Soetoro’s records I’d ask to see, I’d add the deed and all sales records for his home in Chicago.

    Any response presupposes the fallacy that Mitt has the balls to do the right thing.
