Romney Has Even More!

It seems Mitt Romney wasn't entirely honest when he released tax returns showing that his daily "earnings" - from returns on investments, not actual work - equalled most people's yearly earnings. A review by the L.A. Times found at least 23 funds omitted, including 11 in tax havens like the Caymans. The Romney campaign called the discrepancies “trivial,” but acknowledged they are making “some minor technical amendments” to the disclosure. Let us be clear: The issue isn't simply that the guy is filthy rich; it's possible, if not likely, he could be a decent human being with all those millions. The issue is his two-faced, tone-deaf, arrogant and sanctimonious sense of entitlement to it, and the slimy lies he tells, at every turn, about it.
