    I'm guessing most of his income was from investments , which can be taxed at a lower rate than original income.

    I think that the fact that he made his money from investments indicates that he may have paid nothing on income. There is nothing wrong with that. It is how our system works but the problem is a majority of the people would be pretty upset about that.

    Okay - I will take that bet. The usual Mittens $10K I presume?

    That is a false comparison and totally irrelevant because Obama isn't campaigning on a policy that would effect anyone's college grades. However, Romney is campaigning on lowering taxes that would directly lower his own taxes to almost nothing and would raise taxes on the poor. That is why the American people have a right to know what he has paid in taxes if he intends to make tax policy.

    that was really good! Much better than my previous responses.

    While I think both are irrelevant, Obama's transcripts and Romney's tax returns, you do have to admit that Romney's tax returns are slightly more relevant. After all Obama's transcripts are decades old, they don't reflect the same man that Obama is now, like everyone else is grown and changed as time as moved on. Romney's tax returns are however more recent. Personally I don't care that he pays less as a percentage of income in taxes than I do, that's what he's legally required to pay and just like him I only pay what have to pay and nothing more, but obviously many other people don't feel the same way and it would make an excellent talking point for Dems to go on about how much less he pays.

    Then we'll get back into that old argument of what number is more important, what he pays in total dollars or what he pays as a percentage of his income. No one has a moral opinion on that question, and people's answers will be entirely based on their politics which means it'll be a worthless debate with no real answer, because the only answers are opinions. Thankfully we've avoided that so far.
