Of course...Kerry could have completely blown ALL of the arguments against him out of the water merely by allowing his DoD records to be completely open. Same with Obama...imagine how the furor over his birth certificates, college admission records etc would have been quickly eliminated if he didnt continue to act like he has something to hide. And SINCE the democrats are all about 'disclosure' when it comes to Romney you would THINK they would be all aboard when it come to their own guys...right? But then...liberals never cared about Kerrys numerous houses, tax rates, proven tax evasion schemes, etc. They never complained about hi being unapproachable or unable to connect with the 'common man'. Mostly because when it comes to their guy...they just dont care.

This has now been debunked. So the question is, if a United States senator lies about another American's income tax filings in an attempt to smear them, should that trusted member of civilized government be forced to resign?
    How has Reids claim been debunked? Where are Romney's tax forms from 2007,2008, 2009? I'm sure there are some years there that he paid no taxes in.

    He DID volunteer...and bailed as soon as a democrat lost the election. He was following the Kennedy plan to success in politics. He also nominated himself for those decorations, several of them being 'awarded' after he was an elected official. His record and performance was countered by people he served with. They would be in a much more powerful position to know than someone like...say...me...a guy with 20 years of service, 7 deployments in a combat zone and 6 and 2/3s rows of commendations and awards (none of which were awarded for rice shrapnel in my ass because I was standing too close to a container I tossed a grenade into. But then...I never proudly admitted to shooting an unarmed fleeing enemy combatant in the back either).

    No, now you're misrepresenting what I said.

    First of all, I was explaining what someone else said. The full context of the thread shows that.

    Second of all, the part you highlighted was under the assumption that the short-form certificate was "real."

    Also, keeping mind that I was explaining someone else's statement there, it was about something other than his place of birth.

    Face it; you didn't even actually understand my post in the first place.

    Perhaps the further deflection indicates that you now realize that.


    Moving the goalposts? How cute.
    That's completely idiotic. It's the equivalent accusation; I see you didn't even try to explain how it's wrong. When you've got nothing, I guess this is the best you can do.


    All the mental acrobatics required to write the above are giving you a headache aren't they?
    No mental acrobatics; it's just the way it is, and your handwaving indicates you can't dispute it.

    And continuing to dwell on this also indicates the lack of stones necessary to answer whether or not you think the PWC letter is forged/fraudulent/both, as it would have to be not to dispute Reid.

    So, answer up.

    Oh...hey...I get it...EVERYONE does it. The rich dont get and stay rich by giving their wealth away. Hells bells...the richest politicians in congress are democrats...we know that. The blatant hypocrisy comes from those that actually pretend to give a **** about this stuff. Like...say...you? Do you REALLY care and if so...are you clamoring for full disclosure on both sides?

    Nothing. That's the point. They're asking for 10 years. He released 1. In the words of Harshaw "what does he have to hide?"

    He is foolish for releasing ANY of it because all it will do is cause people to spend the next four weeks with one argument after the other talking about his tax returns and NOT the problems this country is facing. And nice continued dodge on the reality that liberals never give a rats ass about this stuff...any of it...when its 'their guy'.

    He released 2, and you haven't answered my question about the PWC summary going back to 1990. Do you think it's forged or fraudulent? C'mon, Hatuey; it's a simple question.

    They're already doing that. First they accuse him of not paying enough taxes, then they tax his tax forms and say that paying TOO MUCH taxes means he shouldn't be President. Who could've predicted?
