Newspaper: GOP to Mitt: Release your taxes
Mitt Romney: Could this no good horrible week get any worse?
Newspaper 2: Palin the better candidate - McCain. Why I didn't pick Mitt.
Man: Uh, sir...
Covers up the magic underwear.
I’m still chuckling over the “retroactive retirement” comment from his senior advisor. With a team like that, Mittens must be saving a fortune!
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet, Mittens!
McCain said ‘there was nothing disqualifying’ in the tax returns. He would not discuss specifics, like whether there were years when Willard paid no taxes or got a refund.-He did not say how much was in Willard’s Swiss Bank Account, or how much was in the tax havens of Bermuda or Cayman Is.-He did not say if there was anything unethical, borderline illegal or flat-out disgusting in the tax returns.-Nothing about when Willard ‘left’ Bain.-Only ‘not disqualifying’. Seems like something his lawyer would advise him to say.
I can hear Mitch McConnell saying after O gets re-elected “our purpose is to make Obama a two term president”. LOL!
REmember during the primaries, the main search was on for “ANY BODY BUT ROMNEY?He is the PICK of the LITTER?? He is the BEST they could put up?He is just a consolation prize.
One good reason NOT to vote for Mittens: He is beholden to Sheldon Adelson to the tune of $100,000,000. That buys a lot of Justice Dept. shyness when it comes to looking into his bribing a Macao official to pull strings for his casinos. Remember the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act?
rightswrong, as usual: Neither MItt, nor any of his sons have served in the military, lose this post!
seems that Mr. Rightsight repeats himself on this toon, also…. I don’t understand why some people get so worked up over cartoons, sheesh, don’t give yourself a stroke over it…. please lighten up
Ain’t it grand watching the Reeps defend someone they really would have preferred to sit out this election!?
itt has been called “the pick of the litter”. That just goes to show why you should be very careful in picking up litter.
It’s called TRANSPARENCY, doofus. WHY doesn’t Mitty want to release his tax returns – every other presidential candidate has released multiple years of their returns.
And before you bring up President Obama’s birth certificate, remember he did release the short form long before the 2008 convention, and Hawaii did certify it was valid. Mitt hasn’t even revealed his income for the past few years and NOBODY has certified the returns reflect his actual income. Heck, there is even a discrepancy about when he left Bain!!
I’m sorry, I don’t really get what you’re saying here. Can you elaborate? To me this is a really serious issue and our futures are at stake. I remember thinking back in ‘68; how could our country elect a paronoid schizo like Nixon and of course he wound up putting himself above the laws and committing criminal acts and justifying them by saying; "If a President does it, it’s not a crime." I feel the same way now about someone with beliefs that are as bizarre as what Romney subscribes to. Are you saying Obama has the same beliefs or even more bizarre? What is it you’re saying?
churchill was right: Assuming you are interpreting x’s response correctly and let’s assume you are, I disagree with you on your (his) points. As an atheist you must surely decry the fact that if a highly intelligent, articulate, and well qualified person doesn’t at least pay lip service to one of the organized religions, always Christian to this point, he/she has no chance of gaining political office, thereby disqualifying some of the best and brightest. This is a tragic loss for our country and explains to a large degree why our political system is so broken. If a person is successfully able to fake a belief, I don’t think that necessarily is a knock on their character any more than a Jew faking a belief in Christianity to avoid persecution in pre-war Germany, or the character in Albert Nobbs pretending to be a man to avoid the discrimination and brutality women faced at that point in time and place, or a gay who stayed in the closet for the same reason. I don’t see this as a party issue as I’m an independent and don’t much care for either party. I’m not sure what you mean about Harry Reid, I don’t know anything about him, I’m just not that into politics to be honest about it, but if you are saying that he’s Mormon and if he believes his underwear is magical and wards off evil, then no, I don’t believe he is qualified to hold office either. If you want to extend the argument to all Christians who believe that they are eating the body and drinking the blood of Christ and all the other beliefs that can be seen as bizarre, then that certainly should be open for discussion, but you may as well try to walk on water at this time in our evolution. But the topic at hand is about Romney and a belief that is so outré and weird that it should be brought to the forefront before we end up with another President following voices in his head and calling them God. I think it’s a battle we can win at this time and send a warning shot across the bow of those who would like to create a theocracy to keep their weird beliefs to themselves and stick to reality and the secular issues at hand. As for your sarcasm and character attack, for a person as intelligent as you are I think they do you no justice.
“Obama might be lying”. And as an old teacher of mine once said "there MIGHT be litttle green men dancing on the roof but that ain’t the way to bet. Unless you have proof your accusations are without merit.
The trick is to twist the truth, walrus. All politicians do that.
