Media Tries to Bring Reid’s Lie to Life
You’re looking at it as a resident of Realville would be looking it — purely logical, commonsensical — and in so doing, you are way above the point that they’re trying to make here. All they want is those returns. I’ll tell you what I have heard. I’ll tell you what I’ve heard. Well, no! We’ve got a bite. Number 17. It’s this clown at CNBC, Andrew Ross Sorkin. Listen to this.

Mitt Romney paid three-and-a-half million dollars in taxes last year. Mitt Romney paid $4.7 million in taxes in 2010. So if you add that up, you get $8.2 million in taxes Romney has paid in the past two years. Is that what the Democrats call not paying your taxes? So $8.2 million in federal taxes the last two years. I kid you not. US News & World Report has just posted the following link. “Here’s How Mitt Romney Might Have Paid No Taxes.” They’ve had somebody on their staff look at a whole bunch of hypotheticals and come up with a way that a guy like Romney might not have paid any taxes. I don’t know if this is for ten years or what, but they’ve actually done it. So a lie has come to life in the left-wing media. It is said, by the way, that Romney paid 42% of his 2011 income in taxes and charity. Let’s see Dingy Harry’s. Let’s see his returns so that we can compare.
