    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 middle class never stopped working hard until their jobs were off-shored by the 1%.

    stop lying. many of those jobs were off shored by the reality that if companies kept paying 4X for unskilled labor they would go out of business.

    No you see it as slaking your resentment of those who are more industrious, skilled or intelligent than you are.

    its pathetic that your only forefathers was the FDR junta

    Other - Obama's college records are more important. They might give us added insight into his political leanings.

    or the fact that he is an affirmative action poster child who most likely engaged in misrepresentation to get into those schools or pay for them

    I called you a socialist based on your trickle down economics post not on a progressive tax system. Trickle down as you refer to it is supply side and it works.

    This is the first thing in the thread that Mycroft said that makes sense.

    Romney doesn't need to exist to know our tax system is screwed up. We penalize labor and reward sloth. We take at an absolute level more as you make, but we take as a percentage, more for labor. It's a stupid tax system that rewards trust fund babies for living off qualified dividends by taxing them at low rates and hammering the working middle class with higher marginal effective rates.

    I don't know about that. That will happen regardless if he releases or not.

    I think, as a CPA, he's hiding something far worse. Like a tax shelter scandal.

    Campaigns do not actively add fuel to the fire of a rumor that hurts them unless disproving it makes it worse. I have never seen a campaign at any level, from grade school to the Presidency that actively helped its opponent tear their own campaign down. Romney's hiding something that makes paying little legally look cute.
