    It is the focus of this election, whether it is your focus or not.

    To me it doesn't matter. I do think he's hiding something embarrassing, politically damaging or both. In the absence of his actual returns, I assume the worse. For me that means he possibly paid more to Communist China in capital gains tax than to the US taking advantage of US tax law that allows Americans to deduct taxes paid to foreign governments from their US tax liability. Or he's possibly heavily invested in US companies that got Wall Street bailouts. Just a guess and neither are things that would cause me to change my vote.

    In the interest of fairness to both sides I think Obama is probably hiding something too. Again, in the absence of his actual college records, I also set the bar high and assume the worse. For me this means he possibly made lousy grades in school, maybe flunked some classes and had to retake them or was forced to change a major. Or he joined college controversial college club or possibly fudged scholarship applications a little and as a broke teenager took advantage of scholarship opportunities designated for foreign students. Just a guess absent the actual records he's chosen not to reveal. None of this 30 year old politically embarrassing stuff would cause my to change my vote.

    You would like that to be the focus of this election but the real focus is obama's failed economic policy.

    The class warfare began in 1980, I am proud the 99% has finally begun to fight back.

    As the majority of people are aware, the economic problems are the result of trickle down economics and financial deregulation perpetrated by the 1%.

    You labor under the delusion that everyone who is not in the top one percent is a whining envious loser

    that is not true. but I will give you credit doing your best to try to convince as many as possible to stop working hard and start sucking on the public tit

    the economic problems come from too many people thinking others have a duty to pay for them

    The constant litany whining about the top one percent is far past pathetic.
