Of course, you can't lie about stuff like that if you are an elected US official
No, politicians lie all the time.
Nope, still don't believe Romney has ever paid taxes.
... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy.
Australian social scientist, quoted by Noam Chomsky in World Orders Old and New
Romeny knows if he releases 10 years that the democrats, or as Obama always says the opposition, would use that to try to tear him apart on non-issues, thereby wasting the next 45 days until the election.
He doesn't have time to talk about something that is none of your business.
He has done nothing illegal, if he had the IRS would be allover him, so it is nobodys business what is in his tax returns.
Waterhouse was very careful with the wording in the "letter". Apparently according to tax experts, the wording makes the document nearly worthless in deciphering the mysteries of the Romney's returns. It's all legal of course.
In any case, this is simple politics, not lying and certainly not something one would resign over. Each campaign takes much broader license with the truth in their political ads...
In the interim, we only have what we have; which is not the Romney tax return but a note from his mother saying its "ok".
Romney can have all kinds of paper losses that offset income and create a zero tax liability.
Believe it or not, many of the 47% are millionaires...
