A View from the Altar / The case of Romney and the tax returns

The case of Romney and the tax returns

Presumptive nominee Romney has released a couple of his tax returns showing that, indeed, he’s rich.  Not much news there, and the president’s henchmen political operatives were unable find anything all that useful, which is pretty much what everybody expected anyway.  So the president, our scion of honor and righteousness in the White House, tossed out the word felon, then refused to apologize for it, doubling down on his attacks and accusing Romney of a lack of openness for not releasing more tax returns.

Romney’s response to all this: He says he’s shown enough tax returns.  Puh-leeze!

A far better response would have been, “Just between us felons, why are you hiding behind executive privilege to obstruct a congressional investigation into your gun running scheme in Mexico?  And while we’re talking felonies, how about you explaining where you got that Connecticut Social Security number?  Because fraudulent use of an SS number is identity theft, and that actually is a felony.”

And then on the subject of openness, Romney might have asked the president to show us his college transcripts so we can see what kind of grades were achieved by the most intelligent president in history.  Since Obama wants to see financial records, how about let’s all see how Obama got financed in college so we can lay to rest those nasty rumors about his being on special scholarships as a foreign national.  Wouldn’t it be cool if some of those records used a different name, different SS number, and included claims that he was born in Kenya and had Indonesian citizenship?

It’d be nice to have the president’s explanation about why nobody at Columbia University remembers him ever being there.  And couldn’t we hear about Obama’s ties to convicted felon Tony Rezko who was intimately involved with financing Obama’s house in Chicago?  I’m just asking because none of my personal friends is a felon, and I’m betting you don’t have a lot of felons on your Facebook friends list either.  And following the felon theme, I really liked Mark Levin’s suggestion that Obama reveal to us the names of his drug pushers.  No response from the White House on Levin’s request.

Note to Mr. Romney and his handlers: We need a sign.  Yes, a sign.  A sign that you know you’re in a fight.  A sign that you’re aware the future of freedom is at stake and that you’ve become a major player in preserving it.  The president’s personal affairs look like a wailing outcry begging his adversaries to go after him.  Why can’t we see Mr. Romney take a swing at that?

It makes you wonder.  Because a whole chorus of anti-Beltway rubes and rednecks have outed Mr. Obama as a fraud while the courts and D.C. establishment can’t bring themselves to even glance at their evidence against him.  Romney, being basically a northeastern liberal establishment critter, apparently just can’t bear to fly a flag that looks like theirs.

Which is why, even if Romney wins, we’d all do well to keep our expectations low.
