No he won't. All he has to do is ask why Obama is so concerned about Romney's taxes and yet has not said a word about good o'l Harry not doing his job and producing a budget during his entire presidency. Obama's job is suppose to be the American people and a budget effects the American people a hell of alot more than Romney's tax returns. Besides, if Obama brings it up then it's fair game for Romney to point out he did nothing illegal in using every loophold available to him and if Obama has a problem with it then why didn't he keep his promise to revise our tax laws?
If Romney is lucky Obama will say something about his taxes!
the party's over...

Harry Reid’s smear attack on Mitt Romney masks Dems’ problems

Weak economy, no job growth and huge deficits should be the real target

When he descended into smarmy innuendo about Mitt Romney’s taxes, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was merely executing a tactic that is increasingly central to President Obama’s reelection campaign.

High unemployment and trickling job production have foreclosed Obama from running strong on his domestic record. So he’s painting Romney as a rich, out-of-touch tax chiseler as a distraction from the accumulating woeful economic reports.

Reid took the rhetoric into the pits with a claim that someone had told him Romney had not paid taxes for 10 years, thereby filling a vacuum left by Romney’s release of only one year’s tax returns with a promise of one more.

The transparency of Reid’s cheap theater puts Washington’s economic betrayal of the American people on direct view. Democrats and Republicans alike have been complete busts in reviving the economy — and now they’ve done one worse.

A stunning New York Times story on Monday convicted them of gross malfeasance. The country is marching toward the so-called fiscal cliff that Congress created to get past the paralyzing fight over raising the debt ceiling.

Come the new year, defense spending plummets by $400 billion, forcing tens of thousands of layoffs. The Democrats insisted on the huge hit to force Republicans to accept tax hikes produced by the end of the Bush-era cuts.

What The Times revealed is that companies have scrapped hiring plans out of fear of an enormous meltdown. The firms want to take on people, but the picture is too uncertain and they see their customers pulling back as well.

IN OTHER WORDS, REID & CO. HAVE GONE BEYOND DOING NOTHING. THEY ARE INFLICTING REAL HARM.

Dear Harry,
Keep up the pressure!

Meanwhile back at the ranch:

Mitt Romney skipped Italy on his swing through Europe. That was probably prudent.

That’s because Bain Capital, under Romney as chief executive officer, made about $1 billion in a leveraged buyout 12 years ago that remains controversial in Italy to this day. Bain was part of a group that bought a telephone-directory company from the Italian government and then sold it about two years later, at the peak of the technology bubble, for about 25 times what it paid.

While Bain won’t disclose its precise return on the investment, Cuneo’s office said Investitori Associati’s return was almost 28 times the initial investment. Bain, like other private equity firms, enhances returns by using borrowed money to finance acquisitions.

Bain moved profits through a series of subsidiaries in Luxembourg, a country that makes it easy to get cash out without paying taxes, according to corporate filings. Corporate records in Luxembourg show Bain carried out technical steps for a tax- free repatriation of profits to the U.S.

Coupled with the House's rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama's budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year."

Yep, it sure sounds like republicans are the problem

Bunk. Homer doesn't think clearly. Homer just believes what he hears from socialist party pundits. That comes across loud and clear.

You're a goddamned liar Frank. Government spending hasn't doubled at all, it's been essentially flat. Just what wasteful spending did the Democrats push through that somehow escaped the Bush veto pen? Democrats had a slim margin in the House and a one vote margin in the Senate. You right-wingers are really good at making baseless statements with nothing to back them up.

By the way Frank, Bush used creative accounting to hide the costs of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and Obama put them right out front where the American people could see them.
You're an idiot Frank!

Those dems sure look interested in fixing the economy.

" House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer says his party won't agree to fix a typo in a GOP regulations bill that significantly alters the meaning of the measure.

The bill calls for a moratorium on "significant" regulations (defined as costing the economy more than $100 million) until the unemployment rate hits 6 percent. Instead of unemployment, the GOP printed the word "employment.""

Hi! I am just blogging for fun. Congratulations to
the workers connected to the Curiosity Rover mission to Mars! I can just one of the liile green
Martians waving at us through the Rover T.V. camera! If the Martian planet does have life.
Remember there are living creatures in strange
places on earth. In the bottoms of hot molten
volcanoes...In the deserts...in The Artic and
Antartica! On Mars there could be an intelligent,
but strange, form of life on Mars. The Bible says:
"No"! But, if there is intelligent life on Mars,
you can throw out The Bible as hogwash! The Bible
says something like this...In the beginning the
world was a vast wasteland of nothingness! And then
God created everything and the earth was a vast
wasteland and God created Adam and Eve and all the
vegetation and seas and animals. By the way, read
the Bible yourselves and see what it says. I am
just commenting from my head. Read it yourselves.
By the way, Russia, I think, is planning a manned
space flight to Mars! There will be one or two
Russian cosmonauts on a manned mission to Mars and
it is not long from now! I have said enough and I
used 1119 alphabet letters and I finally said
something important. Love, Carmino Seranni
