Anne Romney, the wife of GOP hopeful Mitt Romney, on Thursday insisted that she and her husband would not be giving voters any more information about their tax returns because they had “given all you people need to know.”
Oh sure, it was the wife of the candidate, not the candidate, who made that statement, but how different is it really from so many of Mitt Romney’s statements. Statements that reflect an imperial attitude so natural that they don’t even realize it.
“All you need to know.”
“Let them eat cake.”
What’s the difference.
Righteousness is the usual hallmark of a scoundrel.
Simple fact: If Romney didn’t have something to hide in his past tax returns (like that he was still on the Bain payroll several years after he claims otherwise) – if he didn’t have something to LOSE by releasing them, he would release them. Can anything be more obvious?
And speaking of “simple facts”, here are a few more:
Simple fact: In the past 150 years, the Presidents with the most “business experience” were the WORST for the economy and jobs. Namely, Hoover and GW Bush.
Simple fact: Under Romney, Massachusetts was #49 in the nation in job creation.
Simple fact: Running a nation is not like running a business. You can’t just layoff or divest the “unprofitable” divisions.
Simple fact: Four years ago, the economy was in free-fall. Now it is improving, although it’s still an uphill struggle. Romney’s proposals equal returning to the GW Bush era. How much simpler can it be?
