I'm so disgusted by the video of Romney & his comments over 47% of people.. When I worked part time & made less than $10,000 I didn't have any federal taxes taken out... I am NOT a victim, I am NOT not being personally responsible.. I didn't make enough to have it taken out BUT I did pay federal taxes, soc security, medicare, etc, various people haven't paid federal income taxes in years cause they don't make enough, are the ELDERLY, are disabled, or some other circumstance... in fact the 10 states with the most NON-paying federal income tax citizens are RED states-----his potential voters... How he decided that Barack OBAMA's 47% were the ones not paying taxes is beyond me- but it does sound better for him. His statement is down right ridiculous,OFFENSIVE---- he will NOT worry about these people, the people whom he's trying to be THEIR president.. It's despicable. I realize that he was catering his words to $50,000 table donors but that only makes it worse in that he will say anything to anyone to get their vote no matter who's toes he has to step on... how anyone can still support this man is beyond me, If you want to un-friend me because of this.. have at it. Thank you for reading. I hope that you can understand that my anger is directed at this un-caring statement of someone who is wanting to become president & as a mother & citizen I take that VERY serious. Good day. :)

I've been thinking about something... putting aside the fact I'm a very proud supporter of Barack Obama, I know it's a shocking revelation! ;) It really does bother me that Mitt Romney has not released more tax returns... what is up with that?? This man would be running our country & in my opinion we have a right to see how he handles his own business.. seems like being president is a JOB where that seems reasonable. Especially after all the president had to do to beyond proof he was a US Born Citizen, WHY won't Mr. Romney release more than the last two years, what does he have to hide...I'm just so curious-- what is on them?? The last two years are when he knew he would run, did he clean up his act, did he do shady things on his tax returns prior to 2010, maybe not, but why make us all wonder if every thing is above board just release them.. FYI.. Barack Obama released 7 years of tax returns in 2008 & over the last 30 years no other candidate had released so few.. well except for John McCain *who released just two also, so when Mitt talks about precedent, he's referring to John McCain. hmmm...
