Obama ad: Romney 'makes you wonder' if he paid taxes; What does Obama #makeyouwonder?

The most positive campaign evah is out with a new ad that “wonders” if Mitt Romney “paid any taxes at all.”

From the voice-over:

Tax havens. Offshore accounts. Carried interest. Mitt Romney has used every trick in the book. Romney admits that over the last two years he’s paid less than 15 percent in taxes on $43 million in income.

Makes you wonder if some years he paid any taxes at all.

Obama supporters aren’t saying Romney didn’t pay taxes. They’re just “asking questions.”

Well, there’s a lot about President Transparency that makes you go “hmm,” so conservatives are pushing back with the #makesyouwonder hashtag. National Review’s Jim Geraghty got the ball rolling.

Hey, we’re just wondering. And that’s not all that makes the right side of the Twitterverse wonder.

Team Obama has tried desperately to portray Mitt Romney as a secretive, shady character whose campaign is driven by “clandestine” meetings, “shadowy” money, and “secret gatherings of billionaires.” All while the president invokes executive privilege to hide Fast and Furious documents, covers up his ties to criminals and terrorists and quietly lines the pockets of big donors.

Makes you wonder.

    And what about those undocumented meetings in the townhouse across the street from the White House?

    And what about O’Bambi’s personal Blackberry call, texxt and email records?

    How about BUFFETT and all the other actual TAX CHEATS who surround Obama?

    Having that hack, Axelrod, come out of his hole, to say Romney is secretive is really creepy. Axelrod looks like some Bolshevik revolutionary, and in fact comes from a line of Marxists. Secretive, indeed!

    it seems to me that OBAMA is the one who is PRESIDENT right now….. He could order the IRS and the SEC and (for that matter) the FBI to conduct whatever investigations of Romney he would deem necessary…. and he probably already has….. why don’t people realize this….. how DUMB are people???

    Selective enforcement makes you wonder if Rule of Law will be restored?

    “why Obama can’t speak a foreign language when Columbia has a foreign language requirement.”

    Not when you remember that American English would count for a Kenyan…..

    Believe me if Romney did anything illegal on the tax returns Obama and his 4500 new IRS agents would have found it already and it would on display for everyone to see. Then some poor IRS agent would be locked up for following orders.
