Maggie Haberman sums up (http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns-haberman/2012/08/romney-wants-his-taxes-business-record-off-table-131665.html) Mitt Romney's plea (http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/08/10/13218926-video-first-read-minute-a-shift?lite) to the Obama campaign in three words: "Stop hitting me."








ROMNEY: I can assure you, our campaign would be helped immensely if we had an agreement between both campaigns where we're only going to talk about issues and that attacks based upon business, or family, or taxes, or things of that nature, that this is just a diversion.CHUCK TODD: So, are you going to throw out a pledge or something?
ROMNEY: I would love to have that.
Todd then asked Romney what the details of such a pledge would be. True to form, Romney sort of backed off.

ROMNEY: I don't have a pledge that I can present to you, but I think it would be extraordinarily helpful if both campaigns focused on issues.TODD: And figured out a way to come up with an agreement?
ROMNEY: Well, that's never happened in politics.
Obviously, Romney's feeling the heat, but the attacks he's facing are nothing compared to the crap President Obama has had to deal with. So no sympathy for Mitt. Politics ain't for the weak of heart.And isn't it amazing to hear him beg the Obama campaign to stop talking about his business record? It wasn't long ago that he said his business record was the thing that qualified him for the White House. When he wrapped up the nomination, he didn't even mention (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/04/26/1086582/-Mitt-Romney-doesn-t-want-to-talk-about-his-record-as-governor) he had been governor of Massachusetts! Business and the Olympics were the only things he mentioned. But now he's crying uncle.
That being said, maybe there is room for a deal here. If Mitt Romney will agree to release his tax returns for the same years that President Obama has released his tax returns, then Democrats should agree to stop attacking Romney for hiding his tax returns. Sounds like a fair deal to you, right? Yeah? I thought so. How about it, Mitt?

LOL, you think that by default I support Obama?

Wrong....I think Obama is a Liar and has been disappointing.

You see what you just did?

You, like many others fall for the false dichotomy that is U.S politics.

I don't like either candidate, I think Obama is the lesser of two evils though.

But I'm not afraid to bash BOTH equally.


Although TBH, I don't think I could EVER vote for the republicans, they have become so fringe, so far right, and so insane that everything they do is comical.

But when it comes time to vote, if you even vote, you will pull the lever for Obama or someone that will split the Romney vote.


Bracing for the unfounded left wing attacks.

Yeah, I vote and like I said, I believe Obama is the LESSER of two evils.

I wish we didn't have this terrible two party system that is ruining the government but if I don't vote or I vote for anyone else, it might as well be a vote for "Mittens".
