I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination. I have had a number of people tell me that. That’s the best you’re going to get from me. … I don’t think the burden should be on me. The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?
To the Democrats, the burden is upon Romney to prove the statement false, whether it was legitimate or not. But what if the table was turned around? I do not think I need to elaborate what would have happened – with the help of the bias media.
This is the stuff of banana republics and totalitarian regimes, but the Senate Majority Leader does it anyway, knowing that his media allies are more than willing to keep the story alive, and that other Democrats will rally to his side.
So, if I claimed someone told me that Harry Reid moonlights as a transvestite Marilyn Monroe impersonator in Vegas, by Reid’s distorted proof standard, the burden is on him to prove otherwise. . . . For the record, Mitt Romney has released tax returns for the last two years, but hypocritically Reid, Pelosi and Wasserman have refused to release their tax records, which might shed light upon how they have increased their net worth by tens of millions of dollars while in Congress.
You know, releasing private information isn’t every candidate’s favorite part of the process, but it’s a tradition that’s important. It’s valuable to the American people as they decide who should be president.
I want to see records regarding his repatriation when he returned from Indonesia; name change from Barry Sotero to Barack Hussein Obama; Punahou School, Occidental College and Columbia University (all three of which could show he illegally applied for aid as a foreign student, among other things); Columbia senior thesis; Harvard Law School; years in the Illinois State Senate; membership in the Illinois State Bar Association; medical; and, finally, his passport and visa records. Obama has refused to release any of these files, and has paid millions of dollars in legal fees to suppress them. Any one of them would likely provide plenty of evidence to raise questions about Obama’s qualifications to run for president of the United States — or to be re-elected to that post.
For example, let’s focus on just one of the sets that Obama refuses to release — his Columbia records. A Columbia class of ’83 colleague, author and former Libertarian Party vice-presidential nominee Wayne Allyn Root, says he never saw or heard of Obama even though they were in the same political science and pre-law program. He also says that if Obama’s Columbia records were released, one might find that he “attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student and paid little [tuition for Columbia] or Harvard Law School because he illegally applied for foreign aid.” Adding to the Obama enigma, a Wall Street Journal report filed back when Obama was a candidate, “Obama’s Lost Years,” noted that “some 400 of his classmates [were randomly contacted] but no one … remembered him.” What we do know about Obama is that he had a tragic young life, despite his official White House bio that begins, “His story is the American story — values from the heartland, a middle-class upbringing in a strong family…” We know Obama was a disciple of hate and mentored by Marxists.
I have voted Democrat all my life. I served in the Clinton administration and worked for a Democratic congressman on Capitol Hill. I deplore these tactics. When Harry Reid goes on the floor of the Senate and makes assertions like he did, he demeans the institution. As my old boss, the late Ron Brown, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, used to say, ‘You can’t be for jobs and against the people who create them.’ Every time you hear a politician sling mud at an opponent rather than addressing a real issue, recognize that you’re the one being dissed. Then do us all a favor and vote your anger.
