Here is Biden this weekend:
And this is a man who says President Barack Obama is out of touch. Out of touch with the needs of the American people. This coming from a man who until recently had a Swiss bank account and millions of dollars invested in the Grand Cayman Islands beyond security – beyond scrutiny. And President Obama is out of touch?Here's more on Romney's mysterious taxes from ABC News' Jonathan Karl:
When his father was a candidate for president in 1968, his father released 12 years of tax returns because he said, and I quote, “One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show,” end of quote. That was his father. His son has released only one year of his tax returns, making a lie of the old adage, “like father, like son.” He wants you to show your papers, but he won’t show us his. It’s kind of fascinating. So many questions.
KARL: We've looked back and found every presidential nominee in both parties over the last three decades has released more tax returns. Romney says he'll release his 2011 return when he finishes it, but that's it. It's not that he doesn't have more returns handy. When he was under consideration to be John McCain's running mate four years ago, he gave McCain 23 years of tax returns, noting at the time quote, “I'm a bit of a packrat so I had them all.” The Romney campaign calls all this attention to his personal finances a distraction—an effort they say by the Obama campaign to divert attention from the President's failed economic record. Diane.This is the same thing the Republicans did with Sarah Palin. They were mortified as to what a simpleton she quickly turned out to be that they hid her from public scrutiny. Palin was only permitted to parrot scripted lines, and most certainly was not permitted to interview with the real media.
A similar thing is taking place with Mitt Romney's taxes. Something's wrong, the Republicans know it, and they hope to hide it from the public until the election has passed. They're trying filibuster transparency because the truth, the Republicans have found, have a liberal bias. So they either lie, or simply hide the truth all together.
