    But, like birthers, taxers will say any stupid, ridiculous thing...if they somehow think it applies to their mindset.

    Don't you think that's rather pathetic?
    Why would first deny that you are pushing this silly TAXER label but when called on it you now sheepishly admit to it? I think that is indeed rather pathetic.

    Oh, I see...

    You, somehow, think that because I identify taxer talk when I see it, I'm PUSHING the stuff.

    LOL!!

    Sounds to me someone is embarrassed to be called a rose.

    When you use a made up label that had no previous meaning until it was politicized by the right - YES - you are pushing it.

    Why did you first deny it?

    Oh...

    Now you are going from embarrassment to anger. For what? For being given a label that perfectly identifies your actions?

    Perhaps you should examine your actions that earned that label, eh? Instead of attacking me for legitimately using the label.

    His returns are indeed a matter of national importance and should and are a crucial issue in this election.
    I don't see them as having that deep of a connection, but then I'm not an extremely partisan person either.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    No, he is using the law to dodge the issue, imo.

    Evidently, you have not compared the historical increase in CEO's gains in income to that of the working class.

    I quite agree. However, the question asks for equivlency, and I don't think they are equal either. But, the more important point is neither really matter.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The IRS offered amnesty to quite a few people that were involved with doing their taxes in ways similar to what the Romney’s did. And you know that the only place that shows up is in amended tax forms. If the Romney’s were offered and accepted amnesty would that be a nonissue for you?
