Mitt is just laughing his ass off at us because this is the second time he is hiding his tax returns. The first time was when he ran and won the governor’s race in Massachusetts. He told them the same thing that he and his wife Ann are telling us now…to trust him.
I prefer to go with ‘trust but verify’ regarding the Romneys …they both want us to trust them, which on a first time basis we would probably do, but in the Romney’s case we have previous info to go on and it was proven that Mitt Romney tricked and lied to the American people whom he asked to vote for him…and they did trust him, voted for him and elected him as the Governor of Mass.
From the Maddow show, with in between video clips excluded…”Look at this reporting from April 2002. One day after balking at releasing his own tax returns, the Romney campaign launches this attack on Shannon O`Brien. Quote, “Her hands aren`t clean,” said Romney deputy campaign manager Eric Fehrnstrom — oh, yes, remember him — of O`Brien`s release of her tax return but not the filings of her husband. Quote, “She can`t claim to be disclosing anything until she discloses the returns of her husband.” He went on to say, “What is she hiding?”
This is the campaign that`s not releasing anything, yelling at the
campaign that has released its tax returns, what are you hiding?
Fast forward 10 years, and now it`s Harry Reid bellowing at Mitt
Romney and Eric Fehrnstrom, what are you hiding? And Mitt Romney and Eric
Fehrnstrom are whining and complaining about this horrible tactic and how
unfair it is, and the whole press is going along with them, without looking
back into Mitt Romney`s history to see that he has done the exact same
Now about how and when Mitt Romney tricked and LIED to the American people to get elected as Governor…
“MADDOW: So for their own reasons, because they were trying to get him kicked off the ballot, Massachusetts Democrats asserted that Mitt Romney’s taxes showed him declaring himself to be a non-resident of Massachusetts. The Romney campaign denied this. They went to reporters and denied that allegation from the Democrats.
“Romney filed his taxes as a resident of both Utah and Massachusetts in 1999 and 2000, and plans to do the same for 2001,” said Romney spokesman, Eric Fehrnstrom.
They wouldn’t release the tax returns, wouldn’t show them to anyone, but they said trust me. Eric Fehrnstrom and Mitt Romney said trust us. The tax returns show that Mitt Romney filed as a Massachusetts resident. That’s what they said. They were lying.
REPORTER: The Democrats point to Romney’s house in Utah, which was listed as his primary residence, to support a challenge. They also want to see his tax returns.
ROOSEVELT: We have now learned from his own lips this afternoon that Mr. Romney lied yesterday when he said he had filed resident tax returns in both Massachusetts and Utah.
REPORTER: Romney acknowledged today he amended his 1999 and 2000 Massachusetts state tax returns to make him a resident here.
MADDOW: To make him a resident here retroactively. So after saying all along for months to the people of Massachusetts, trust me, I have been filing my tax returns as a Massachusetts resident, it finally came out under pressure that was not true. He had to go back retroactively and refile as a Massachusetts resident because he hadn’t filed as a Massachusetts resident despite what he was saying in public.
He said, trust me I have, when he had not.”
You can see for yourself here:
Remember the words of Reagan…’Trust but verify”
Don’t trust him!
