Information about Mitt Romney’s taxes was released today.

The Romneys gave 30 percent of their income to charity. Yes, charity. You know, the thing that does far more good than government bureaucracy ever could. They also paid a higher tax rate. Narrative destroyed!

Showing once again that they are completely out of their minds, lefties are now outraged. That Romney paid too much. 

Unreal! Perhaps they are trying to divert attention from the embarrassments known as Joe Biden and Harry Reid. Remember, Senator Reid just repeated his disgusting and scurrilous accusations from the Senate floor: “For all we know, Mitt Romney could be one of those who paid no taxes.” You know, because some guy who knows this girl who is dating this other guy, told him.

Indeed.

Yep. The result? Frothing and insane outrage. They are out of their minds, truly.

Update: CNN/MSNBC contributor Goldie Taylor is even more unhinged.

    Now we have set the stage for BHO to release his college records…3…..2….1. Go.

    • Lady Mustang

      That’s what I’ve been waiting for over 4 years for! I hope someone has them for release around mid october!

    • MovingToNevada

      I think Romney should come out and release his Harvard transcripts (considering he graduated in the top 5% of his class). That would perhaps put the pressure on Obama to release his. Or at least most would wonder why he’s too embarrassed to do so. Is it because he had below average grades? Probably.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ThePrincester Gary L. Prince

        It has already been shared that Obama was a very poor student. The MSM just hasn’t run with the source and has likely tried to discredit the source.

        • MovingToNevada

          Keeping my fingers crossed that someone will “leak” those documents…college transcripts, that is.

          • http://twitter.com/sumojose Nothing2seehere

            Not a chance, George Soros paid millions to seal those transcripts from Columbia. However it will make for an interesting attack from team Romney to say “Hey, there’s my tax returns now lets see those transcripts!” Along with blasting Harry Reid for his lies and asking when he plans to pay his unpaid taxes and file his returns! lol!

            Noth… we can still hope someone would do the right thing. Wish I were a hacker, I would already have done it FOR THE GOOD OF AMERICA.. and for free!

          Thats not why Obama is hiding his records, he is hiding his records because he is A FOREIGN STUDENT. Not a legit pres… and he is a communist.

          • Mini14’sBlkStrat

            Good point.
            It’s also because he knows that he Never would have gotten into harvard if it wasn’t for affirmative action.
            Lets put it this way…If he graduated at the top of his class, everyone would know it, and he’d be shouting it from the rooftops.

            I have done all the research and read all I can about Obamas birth, and his birth certificate. I have mine in the computer room here with me, Mine is real…. Obamas was made up on a computer with layers. If you would DARE to check it out you would become a believer.

            Sorry Corey, I meant this for Steven Williams.

          • Steve Smith

            hateful is not racist. why is this hateful? President Obama refuses to show his college transcripts or explain how he got in or how he was appointed to law review without writing anything (writing is basically one of the main requirements)… this isn’t hateful or racist, it is however called the truth.

        • Lynelle Hullsiek

          I think Columbia and Harvard and even Occidental should all be held to the fire and asked why they allowed him in their schools. I also think we should re-evaluate why and if we should be viewing the Ivy League as so wonderful. They seem to have been going down hill for a long time.

            Well it’s a good thing no one cares what you think. Are you really so tied to your ideology that you now have to slander the best school in America because a President from the opposing party went there? Grow up.

          • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

            No, we’re “slandering” the “best” school in America because it in some ways it is no better than a matchbook diploma mill, giving anyone who can regurgitate a viscid spew of Marxism and Freud a degree in whatever discipline they can vomit it out on.

          • Douglas Moore

            You are right. It’s just a diploma mill and a communist indoctrination center now. When Harvard was young, it was a Christian school and taught the truth.

        Mr. Romney should do it 48 hours prior to the first Presidential debate.

            Obama wasn’t vetted by the media or by the democrats. I didn’t vote Obama, because I already knew all this… and we told our friends and put it on our social network… but Your Obama still won, and I am sure will again.
            The only good thing about it is that once Obama has 4 more,, and America is on the verge of destruction THEN YOU WILL BEG FOR A GOP CONSERVATIVE PRESIDENT TO CLEAN UP OBAMAS MESS.

    Odd, I don’t see any outrage from the left over THIS release, even in the twitter excerpts posted here. However, the outrage continues over him STILL not releasing details about years besides the two he’s already released. It’s very possible that Romney owed next to nothing in taxes in the years leading up to his run for President. His father, George Romney, would be VERY disappointed.

    • Fire and Adjust!

      Additionally, the Romney campaign is releasing a summary of 20 years
      of taxes, between 1990-2009, detailing their tax expenditures during
      those years:

      – In each year during the entire 20-year period, the Romneys owed both state and federal income taxes.
      – Over the entire 20-year period, the average annual effective federal tax rate was 20.20%.
      – Over the entire 20-year period, the lowest annual effective federal personal tax rate was 13.66%.
      – Over the entire 20-year period, the Romneys gave to charity an average of 13.45% of their adjusted gross income.
      – Over the entire 20-year period, the total federal and state taxes
      owed plus the total charitable donations deducted represented 38.49% of
      total AGI.

      Nice try………..

      • Streetiebird

        I’ll believe it when I see it. And a summary is not the same as releasing the returns. It’s sort of like, you know, a short-form BC instead of a long-form… LOL

        • Iacobus

          If Romney lied on these publicly-released returns the IRS would be all over his ass since they wouldn’t jive with what they have.

          So yeah, narrative destroyed. Don’t you have stupid Obama quotes to defend or something?

          • Streetiebird

            That’s the problem, he has only released two years of returns. His father George Romney knew that to get a clear picture of someone’s financial history you have to release more, which is why he release 12 years when he ran for President. Even John Kerry released TWENTY years of returns when he made his run, because he knows the consequences of hiding your past in a very public election. This is not the last we’ll hear of Romney’s returns.

            *edit* I’m not saying he didn’t pay what he owed. What I’m saying is that he’s hiding WHAT he paid and WHY he paid what he did. Hiding money in offshore accounts is typically not something you would want your President doing, but Romney seems to think it’s cool because it’s in a “blind” trust that he sets the rules for.

          • Streetiebird

            He hasn’t proved that he’s not hiding money in the cayman islands. The Romneys dismiss their money as being in a blind trust. But Romney himself has said that the blind trust is the oldest ruse, since you can define what it can and cannot do, so yes, “Hiding money in offshore accounts”

          And what then, what happens when the media, who is no doubt going to go over these numbers with a fine toothed comb, of which Romney knows full well is going to happen, finds no mentionable discrepancy? What will be your clever retort?

            Cute, but wrong. IF he releases his returns (he won’t) and they show nothing embarrassing then I’ll be satisfied and say no more on the topic.

        So you don’t want him to release any more returns? I think if he has nothing to hide it would be real easy to just release them and be done with it.

          • Streetiebird

            Then why is he fighting to not release the returns? Seems to me like a clear indication he’s hiding something. It would be easier to just release the returns themselves than to create a summary of them… Provided he has nothing to hide 😉

        • dominigan

          “I think if he has nothing to hide it would be real easy to just release them and be done with it.” Like Obama’s college records. Why is it that liberals NEVER hold their side accountable? Is it because they only care about holding power, and corruption is just a means to an end? I think so.

            Because Presidents don’t release college transcripts. Try again.

            It’s not just the College transcripts that are sealed…
            And it’s not a matter of Releasing them, actually–question is…
            Why, Oh, Why would he pay that much money to have the information ‘sealed’ (meaning hidden) in the first place????
            Could the info. contained therein also reveal WHY he and Michele ‘voluntarily surrendered’ their law liscenses that they went into debt for and sacraficed so much for over many years???
            Makes for a couple of Slim Shadys at best, now doesn’t it???

            That much money? Are you talking about the made up $10 million in legal fees he’s supposedly spent? First he spent this imaginary money defending his Birth Certificate, now you’re trying to claim he’s spent money protecting his college transcripts? LOL. If you did any investigation you would see that the $10 mil was a made up figure concocted by birthers.

          No i don’t care if he releases anymore or not. This is not an issue for me in the upcoming election….I already know he is rich. I do not need his tax returns to prove it me. Frankly i do not care that he is rich. That just tells me he knows how to make money….something that a lot of people wish they could do but since there are no jobs they can’t.
          This total obsession over Romneys tax returns is an obvious smoke screen to keep people from really looking at Obama’s records and actions.

          • Streetiebird

            I don’t care he’s rich either, what I do care about is how he hides his money from being taxed, and how by (possibly) doing this he pays less in taxes than most Americans even though he’s extremely rich. But we won’t know either way unless he releases the returns. Obama actually has had a fairly good track record, for example the DOW is more than twice what it was when he took office, he’s stopped the loss of jobs month over month, saved auto companies from going bankrupt, he even tried (unsuccessfully due to Republicans) to roll back the painful Bush tax cuts for the rich.

            I’d take that more seriously if your side hadn’t said during the Bush administration that the DJIA didn’t say anything particularly important about the economy.

            he’s stopped the loss of jobs month over month

            saved auto companies from going bankrupt

            Yeah, auto companies that SHOULD have gone bankrupt (remember, bankruptcy does not mean “going out of business”) and reorganized into leaner, meaner, better-run companies.

            he even tried (unsuccessfully due to Republicans) to roll back the painful Bush tax cuts for the rich

            You say “tax cuts” like those were bad things.

            DJIA doubled = fact
            Over the last what, 30 months jobs were added each month? It’s too bad if his streak is finally broken. GM and Ford are doing great now, providing thousands of jobs that would have been lost otherwise because during the collapse of the financial industry they could not secure a line of credit to prevent bankruptcy, those jobs were saved. And if you actually look at that huffpo link (you probably didn’t) he says that they should be temporarily extended, and that the tax cuts for the rich should be de-coupled from the rest so we can let them expire without hurting the middle class. Good try though.

            The actual number is -500k jobs over his 4 years,just adding the raw 12k here and there don’t cut it,That’s 1/2 million jobs loss net.

          • Streetiebird

            And Bush lost 3.5 million in his last SIX MONTHS in office. Obama stopped us from losing those hundreds of thousands of jobs a month, and instead created jobs for what, 30+ months in a row? Not bad if you ask me.

            I’ve been “Lied to by My Media?” Really? I think you’re projecting because it’s all you’ve got. The same old tired lies you idiots continue to parrot and perpetuate by the progressive owned media.
            I can see what’s right before me, bird. It’s the bought & paid-for lib controlled Media that continually fans the class warfare flames here in the USA–you know, the folks that are owned by the wealthy international CORPORATE conglomerates that own Barack?
            The poor are merely being used as tools–useful idiots, ala Hugo Chavez style. Moi2uMedia (a small Independent Media Research group) was There in 1998 covering the latest when Chavez nationalized the oil industry in Venezuela, and again in 2006 when Chavez announced his plans to nationalize nearly ALL other industry and created gradual but progressive class warfare against the educated and successful business folk via rallying the poor and ‘redistribution of the wealth’ war cry by pacifying the poor with government handouts–of which he needed the wealth created by the business owners to do continue to finance his diabolical Marxist regime. All business folk (small & large) who could afford to ‘get outta Dodge’ did so by Jan, 2009, except those who were determined to stay and fight the takeover, or those who were paid to stay by Chavez’s corrupt regime .
            This is the Same thing your Marxist Messiah is doing–he’s literally taken a couple of chapters out of Chavez’ playbook, which is Castro’s old playbook, which originates in The Bolshevik Revolution’s Marxist Handbook that led to Red Ocktober. Wealth ‘Redistribution’, Social Engineering, Social Justice–all are great sounding ‘progressive’ terms that stemmed from their being put into action in the class warfare propaganda precursor to Red Ocktober.
            One really only need read “Dreams From My Father” and ‘Audacity of Hope’ to understand where Barack is Truly coming from. Then again, as a schill paid for by the media you’ve allowed yourself to be brainwashed to serve, you already know this, no doubt. If not, then, hey, you learned something today.

            He should release more returns because it would give us some idea of what he does with his money when he thinks no one is looking. Looking at the 2011 returns gives us little insight into what he does with his hundreds of millions.

But if you take a step back and wonder what he’s hiding, then maybe you’ll see what we want to see more returns.

        It’s not typical to release college records, whereas it’s typical to release your tax returns (Kerry release twenty years worth). College transcripts are usually not released at all, but rather leaked like Bush’s. It’s just another false-equivalency game played by the right.

          I think it’s rather obvious that Romney gives a lot in both taxes and charity now…unless you think this was some grand scheme like Goldie Taylor apparently does.

          • Streetiebird

            Money given to the Mormon church as Tithe does not necessarily go to charity, but rather to the day to day operations of their church. Or in some cases, to building a $2 billion mall near the Mormon church. Romney doesn’t care that much about the poor, he’s said so himself. He said there are safety nets for them so he doesn’t have to care (even though he is proposing taking those safety nets away). Conservatives DO NOT care about the poor and it shows in their policies.

          • moi2u

            Wow..such distortions of the truth of what was said.
            Romney actually meant that 47% of Americans will be in Obama’s corner regardless because of the mentalilty instilled in them over generations of entitlement welfare-state mindsets and perpetuated by Obama. For these folks, there is no sense in spending campaign resources because their minds are made up and they are sold on the poison Kookaid, lock, stock & barrell–folks like yourself.
            It’s the critical folks in-between that think for themselves that campaign resources must be targeted to that will make or break the election for him. But, of course, the lamestream media bought and paid for by Obama’s corporate financiers will spin that into meaning that Romney doesn’t care about the well being of 47% of the population which is total BS.

    • Bill

      See that really is the main problem. Those in the BHO camp (meaning nearly all blind democrats) will never be satisfied until the government confiscates what it deems fit from every American and then re-distributes the money to those they choose are worthy. Instead, we that do not support BHO believe the government should take only what is necessary of our EARNED income to fund the activities that the Constitution deems is appropriate for the Federal government to be involved. We see this as our money and they see this as their money.

      Regarding tax returns – did you get in as big a snit about Tim Geither not paying taxes (and he is in charge of the IRS), or of the thousands of federal employees currently delinquent on paying taxes, or of the many presidential candidates before Mitt Romney that released only two years of returns?

      Finally, I suspect George Romney would be very proud of his son’s level of charitable contributions. Would that more of our national leaders contributed more to the many charitable groups worthy of these gifts. Who knows, if the left exhibited as much interest in funding Planned Parenthood through private donation as they do with their fetish regarding Mitt Romney’s tax returns perhaps we would not longer be funding abortion with tax monies.

You want to decide what to do with our money because you don’t believe we would spend it wisely – or give it to organizations that share our values, which I suspect is the reason Mr. Romney gives to his church, which now that I think of it, the left wants us to give to the altar of secularism and moral relativism.

          Now I get to laugh at the weak and tired argument used by the left (and you) to preserve PP funding – that their donations pay for the abortions, the federal money goes to “cancer screenings”. Wake up, PP is the largest provider of abortion in the country and until they segregate the federal money from their charitable contributions they will never be able to prove that federal money does not fund abortion.

          • Streetiebird

            You may be well versed in Social Justice, but us real Progressives are far more interested in fairness and helping our fellow man than we are in controlling people’s money. Guess what, if we didn’t have planned parenthood, there would be MORE abortions since they provide MANY other services than abortion, and no taxpayer money goes to abortion by way of Planned Parenthood, no matter what conspiracy you believe in.

            No, are you trying to pass off that PP uses tax money for Abortions? You’re doing a poor job trying to prove it. 97% of what they do is not related to Abortion.

          • J. Cox

            Yes..cuz 55 million abortions are only 3% of what they do…like the mammograms that the left said they did…and then come to find out they didn’t.Math whizzes..now link me to your Al-Jazeera site troll.

            nd also btw we are not using tax money for abortion, that’s just another right-wing media zombie-lie that won’t go away.

            ^^^you said that..now walked it back.Damn facts keep killing you don’t they.

          • Streetiebird

            Wow, I don’t know where you get your statistics, but 55 mil is WAY off. In 2009, their record year for this statistic, 332,278 abortions were performed. It’s tragic that the number is so high, but by performing all their other services, the need for many more abortions is prevented. Now link me to the fever-swamp where you got the 55 mil figure.

          • J. Cox

      That is BS and you know it Streetiebird. You just repeated what that dweeb Harry Reid said. I am originally from Michigan and i know of George Romney. One thing is for sure, George Romney was very proud of his son. Really weird that you think you can channel the dead. I trust Romney a heck of a lot more then Harry Reid, Debbie “the liar” Wasserman Schultz and of course our rock star kardashian Prez. Let me spell this out- Romney is RICH for which he owes no apologies (apologies are a particular quirk of Obama) and apparently has been paying his taxes. I don’t know why all the Demtwits want to see his taxes, they wouldn’t be able to understand them, they would have to hire a CPA.

      • Streetiebird

        “Release of the document, while it might serve a political purpose, would not prove very much, he argued. One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show, and what mattered in personal finance was how a man conducted himself over the long haul.” – George Romney

      And honestly, the “it’s very possible” line? Wow, way to bring absolutely nothing to the table and yet act as if you have a smoking gun. You aren’t by any chance in regular contact with Harry Reid, are you?

You’re so full of rage (and other things) that you feel the need to complain no matter what the topic at hand is. You must lead one very sad life. I genuinely pity you.

    • mkreider

      It is about taxes. He paid millions in taxes and donated to charity. That is the big deal. His 13% taxes equates to millions. He did release the other years to McCain – he does not trust Obama. Well, really who would trust Obama. I read about the really sleazy campaign he ran to get into congress. Slime ball politics.

      • J.Milliscone

        Charitable donations are not taxes. They are tax deductible, but they are not part of the pool of money our government uses to run our services.

        What do you mean by not trust Obama with his taxes? What can he do besides show them?

        • JohnnyL53

          Yes. that’s the first thing I do when deciding whether to give to a charity or not. I ask myself “Will this reduce the amount of money that the government will mis-spend?” The answer is always yes, so I gladly right that check out to the charity.

            What do you mean when you type “Left outraged Romney paid too much”, specifically; paid too much what?

      Right, because everyone can amend their tax returns on a whim! My husband used to work for the IRS and he says that is a bunch of bologna. You can submit changes, but the IRS does their homework to make sure it is legitimate, if it’s not, they deny it no matter WHO you are. And trust me, the IRS never misses a dime. If Romney did any sort of tax fraud, he would have been caught already. His tax returns have been reviewed and reviewed again. Try again.

      Also, you think Obuma doesn’t flip-flop? Are you serious? He’s flip-flopped so much during this last hell of a 4 years! Face it: Obuma doesn’t have your best interests at heart or he’d not have raided Medicare for $716billion, the deficit wouldn’t be at $16trillion, umemployment wouldn’t be at 8.1%+, and he wouldn’t be giving billions of our tax dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood. Think about that. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself and his rich cronies, if even them.

      Obuma has done nothing but be the “celeb President” hob-nobbing with the rich and famous while our country goes to hell. He puts his campaigning, golfing, publicity, and vacationing first, the people second. He’s all about becoming richer and more famous by being President.

    That’s funny. The president released tax returns that span over a decade and yet Romney releases two, and you call for Obama to release college records? Hmmm that adds up. Next you’ll want the president to release his medical record and stamp collection. But, that’s all in fairness, right?

      I honestly don’t need to see Obama’s college records; I already know the man’s an incompetent boob.

      Romney is not required to show more than 2 years worth of tax returns. The Left (your people) are calling for him to release an entire decade. Now, our side, The Right, has said that if Romney releases 10 years of tax returns, Obuma should release his college records. Is it cleared up for you now?

      • Aestro

        It also comes while he’s in damage control after the 47% video last week. I agree that once his full records are released later today, Reid owes him an apology and needs to reveal his “source”.

        And before I hear it, I know plenty on twitchy didn’t see the 47% video as a bad thing. Know that you’re his base, not voters he’s trying to convince, and it hurt him politically. This is sharp timing for him.

      He released his taxes when they were filled – as he said he would do all along. He could not release something prior to it actually being completed though, or do you disagree?

      • Aestro

        My taxes were due in April. Why weren’t his? There were also calls for years prior to 2010, as is custom for presidential candidates. Those weren’t being filed now, yet have been kept secret. If they’re clean, it’s not an issue, but he could have saved himself months of headaches by releasing them earlier.

Do you file quarterly capital gains taxes (hence quarterly means “four.”) When you have as complicated and detailed returns as his, it’s not like he can walk into H&R Block and get them done. This is a little more involved, and completely on the up and up. Many business owners file quarterly as well. It depends on how you are set up.

    Wait… are you actually including a church tithing as a tax? That is awesome that he gave to charity, and that is his faith to give to his church, but you can’t include giving to charity with taxes. You get a TAX CREDIT for giving to charity. The Government gives you money back for giving to charity. That is crazy to include a DONATION to charity in taxes. IT IS A DONATION! Come on.

    • Darkstar1661

      Taxes are always presented by stating what straight percent is paid, and what percent was given to charities. You seem to be doing nothing more then complaining about the normal way things are done solely because that normality doesn’t fit your desired outcome.

    Just one question? By not taking the tax deduction, Romney in effect gave the GOVERNMENT $500,000. That is money the government refunds to Romney, so I guess… He give the refund check to another or the same charity. Liberal media can be brutal. But I was wondering is sound minded REPUBLICANS like yourselves could answer this for me. I really don’t think he was inflating his tax returns. But I need help in answer my one question. Thank you.

    • AustinAndy

      Since most of his income is investment income, he does not pay the government from a paycheck income tax deduction. Therefore he probably pays his taxes on a quarterly basis and receives no refund. If he does pay too much, he would get a refund for his overpayment which the government got to use interest free for however many months he was overpaid.

They think many Dems are not far left enough, but they overlook that and concentrate on making sure the Dem agenda is hard-core Marxist. A few are Dems who are in positions of power in my area. One is a member of the city council. She’s as far left as you can go. She acts like she’s a mainstream politician, but it’s all a stealth Marxist act. That’s the key. Stealth. Obama is a stealth Marxist. He was groomed from an early age to infiltrate the system in order to subvert it. He really is the Manchurian President. He uses the Alinsky method at every turn. I predicted many years ago that a Dem like Obama would be president. The Dem party is not the party of Harry Truman. It’s the party of Che and Fidel.

    Actually when I was younger and did not make very much money a year I never filed for my income tax refund. So yes, in the history of they US someone else has over paid their taxes. Just as has been pointed out that most persons over pay to get a refund at the end of the year. The point being there are actually a number of persons who for whatever reason have not claimed their due returns or done as many deduction as they could have. LOTS of people overpay taxes. Goldie needs to grow a brain and realize that there are persons in this country who actually do make PERSONAL sacrifices for others. If the Democrats were not so busy trying to take other peoples money to spread it around they would realize that they could be giving some of their own.
