|Of course, but people are asking for a lot more than that, Mitt.|
That didn't stop the Right from having a media field day when Obama finally put his document out there, which they all claim is fake. And here comes common sense to tell people that all that denial was a predictable defense for the blight-wing to put up with no support. If you can't prove it is real than you can't prove that it is fake, either.
Besides that, there was fault in the whole plan of trying to out Obama as foreign born in the first place. If it were true then why wasn't it revealed BEFORE we made our votes? If the "birthers" are right, then they're also the biggest procrastinators to ever organize. Where the fuck where they six months prior to the race in 2008? Obama is now four years in office; you're too late and there is no taking back that he won fair and square (unlike the first time his predecessor ran in 2000). But this article isn't a fluff piece or a defense for our current Commander in Chief. That would be against what American Opiate is about because Obama has plenty of people defending him for his disappointing first term.
There is a real issue at hand and it's moment in the light has come (and this time, early). As of this date, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has yet to release his tax returns and his reasoning why is shady. He also hasn't told us why he has money in the Cayman Islands. The cherry on top is the mystery surrounding what he did or didn't do at Bain Capital. What has Faux News done to help him come clean and clear his name? Nothing (obviously). In a chance to fess up he insulted our motives and intelligence:
(my comments are in parenthesis)
"I just have to say that given the challenges that America faces, 23 million people out of work, Iran about to become nuclear, one of every six Americans in poverty (distract much?) –the fascination with the taxes I pay, I find it to be small-minded (Asking for a birth certificate after Obama won is small-minded) compared to the broad issues that we face. But I did go back and look at my taxes, and over the past 10 years I never paid less than 13 percent. I think the most recent year is 13.6 (I paid more and make money that you use as toilet paper) or something like that." ("or something like that?" what the fuck, Mitt- get your facts straight.). -from the Washington Post.
|And when Mitt does pay up, will Faux and the conspiracy nuts deny it?|
Hypocrisy runs deep in politics and if you're going to be running the country then our public figures need to follow through when the masses make a request. Obama came clean and the Right put themselves in total denial in response.What does that say about America and the Republicans? Most Americans have to provide 5 years worth of tax returns, credit reports, and all our financial information just to get a mortgage. It is clear that if Mitt wants to live in the White House, he should fork over the papers.
