SESHas he not complied with all disclosure requirements?Fri Jul 13, 2012 7:30am18.104.22.168Ya know, hundreds of millions of people in this country take steps to "avoid paying U.S. taxes".
The whole "off-shore bank account" nonsense is just moronic mud-slinging to try and sway the vote of ignorant people who thinks there's ANYTHING illegal or insidious or unethical about it.
And...if the law says "you must disclose the following information" and someone has done that, why isn't that enough?
And also...btw...that holds true of ANY Candidate, whether Republican or Democrat.

- That's a lot of money greenman, Sun Jul 15 5:15pmWhat's the point? Is that the amount of money out there in the form of deriviatives created in the Wall St. Casino? 'Cause it sure doesn't have anything to do with Obama.

- Strange you should Gateway, Fri Jul 13 7:46amsay that because it was Romney's father that expressed the need for multiple years of tax releases. His reasoning being that one year could be an anomaly. Now I understand, you, as a Republican... more
