Well, Romney nicely pulled the rug out from under the Progressives/Democrats when he released all of his tax information. This is a relief to me, because I was getting sick and tired of seeing my liberal Facebook friends repeat ad nauseum nasty statements about those missing (per Harry Reid, “unpaid”) taxes. Turns out that, not only did Romney pay taxes, he paid lots and lots of taxes. His effective rate was more than 20%, and that doesn’t even take into account the fact that all of these dollars were capital gains, meaning that they’d already run through the government tax mill once. In addition, he gave almost 30% of his money to charity.
Harry Reid slipped further into dementia by denying that any of this was possible: “He’s hiding something. He’s hiding something! It is so evident he’s hiding something!”
I’d like to say to Reid, “Stay classy, Harry,” but it’s unkind to issue instructions like that to crazy people.
Now that Romney’s financial information is out there, I know that my Facebook friends are going to start criticizing what’s in the documents. Thankfully, Yid with Lid prepared a handy-dandy list about the information. Chock-full-o facts, including facts about Obama, Reid, Biden, Pelosi, and Debbie Whatser-her-name-shmatta, it will give me all the snappy come-backs I need to reorient those silly people away from the dark side and back to the real world.
