    Why would I hate rich people. Some of my favorite people are rich. Lame, stupid talking points are lame and stupid.

    Should he not lead by example?

    Who criticized the amount Romney donated to charity?

    No, I mean pay more in taxes. He's not required by law to take any tax deductions, so why did he? He should lead by example. If he wants others to pay more in taxes, he should put his money where his mouth is.

    He wants to change tax law. He does not want people to pay more than they are legally obligated to. This is a large, unsubtle difference.

    Let's see...factually correct, and totally demolishing your claim...I think you have trouble with the word pitiful as well as the word hypocrisy.

    But if that's what he wants, then he should lead by example. Show people that he's serious.

    I'm with you on this one. This is the same argument people had with Buffett. He called people's attention to how little a percentage he paid in taxes and people thought he should just go ahead and pay them.

    And, good Lord! Look what they did to Romney. Same idea.

    The law is the law. If the deductions and tax treatments are available for one, they're available for all. No one should be expected to pay more than they have to. That's just not how the system works.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
