I see a recurring theme on Fox News. I allowed myself a few minutes to watch the spat between Mitt Romney and Harry Reid over Mitt’s non payment of taxes. The theme reached a new low on the scale of reason.
What I can glean from the Fox pundit talking points is that Fox folks want Reid to produce the goods. Fox is almost making the argument that Romney is in a box and cannot prove the unprovable. That logic would be ok except for the fact that Mitt has tax returns that would prove this “unprovable”. The argument should not pass the analysis of a fifth grader.
Yet the audience at Fox must be brain dead to fall for this incredible upside down logic. Apparently Mitt Romney is trying the same absurdity, saying that Reid should put up or shut up. But there is only one person to shut Reid up, and that is Romney, who just has to produce the damn tax returns.
The logic not to tax the rich is just as absurd, but this Romney tax fiasco just proves that the one per cent will do almost anything to shelter and protect wealth and hollow out our nation in the process. The thievery has been going on for some time now, and the Democrats are not much better.
It is unfortunate that our nation has become so dumbed down. That Romney would even be considered for president when he asserts that Reid needs to put up or shut up is simply an insult to the intelligence of the American people. Romney is insulting us because he must think that most Americans know little about how to avoid the fleecing.
But Mitt, we are learning. Just keep talkin’. You are truly an absurd human being with an almost transparent thieving mentality about you. It is unmistakably evident in almost everything you do. I have more faith in a carnival barker or a guy with the nut under three shells. For you to say that Reid must put up or shut up when you have the tax returns is just an insult to everyone who can hear your voice.
You are a real piece of work Mitt.
