Obama demands Romney’s tax returns; why hasn’t Romney demanded Barry’s college records?

White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed Donald Trump’s position earlier this week that should Obama keep insisting Mitt Romney release his tax returns, Romney should demand that Barry Soetoro, Barrack Hussein Obama, or whatever his name is, first make his college records public information.

Of course, rather than address the issue at hand, the administration consciously chose to launch into an Alinsky style personal attack on Trump. Carney called the suggestion “preposterous,” dismissing Trump as the “guy who insisted that he didn’t believe the president was born in the United States.”

Never mind that the current White House occupant signed an Executive Order hiding every last one of his personal documents from public view on his first day in office. For “the most transparent administration in history,” transparency is meant for everyone else, not themselves.

In typical Progressive “do as I say, not as I do” fashion, the White House has launched repeated attacks on the presumptive GOP presidential nominee over questions about the timing of his departure from private equity firm Bain Capital. One campaign spokeswoman even suggested that Romney committed a felony.

The White House and fellow Democrats keep insisting that several companies filed for bankruptcy and/or shipped jobs overseas under Romney’s Bain leadership. They’re obviously trying to create the theme that Romney only wants to help fellow millionaires, not working people.

Romney has maintained he is not responsible for many of those decisions because they took place after he took a leave of absence in February 1999 to oversee the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games. According to recently released documents, regulatory filings show that Romney was still in charge of Bain through 2002. However, Bain officials, including Democrats, say that he was not involved with the company’s day-to-day operations during that time.

The White House is also criticizing Romney for setting up offshore bank accounts and refusing to release additional information concerning his personal fortune, estimated to be as much as $250 million.

Romney countered this week that, “John McCain ran for president and released two years of tax returns. John Kerry ran for president, and his wife, who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. Somehow this wasn’t an issue. The Obama people keep on wanting more and more and more, more things to pick through, more things for their opposition research to try and make a mountain out of and distort and to be dishonest about.”

But Progressives keep insisting that Romney’s supposed secrecy goes to the “trust factor.” This is the absolute height of hypocrisy. When it comes to secrecy and the trust factor, how on earth can policy wonks who insist on hiding the Oval Office occupant’s entire past claim even a sliver of the moral high ground? Perhaps Progressives need a lesson on how trust is a two way street. They should start with answering the following:

Why was the “Affordable Care Act” passed without Congress reading it first?

Why weren’t the New Black Panthers prosecuted for the voter intimidation that was clearly documented?

Why did the NLRB sue Boeing?

Why has the administration stifled the production of cheap energy through EPA regulations and denial of permits?

Why has the administration abandoned national border security while suing States attempting to enforce federal law and granting blanket protection from prosecution for breaking immigration laws to millions of illegal aliens?

Why is the administration suing States that passed Voter ID laws intended solely to protect the integrity of America’s voting process?

Why has the counting of American votes in the November 2012 election been outsourced to a Spanish company?

Why does the White House continue insisting that average, everyday Americans are not being taxed by the “Affordable Care Act” when enforcement of the “penalty” falls to the IRS?

When did the IRS suddenly leave the Department of Treasury and move to the Department of Health and Human Services?

Why did so many millions of taxpayer dollars go to green energy companies whose executives just happened to have been big time Progressive bundlers for the 2008 Democratic presidential campaign?

Where is the justification for using Executive Privilege to hide the truth about Operation Fast and Furious which resulted in the murder of American Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry?

The White House calling for transparency from the Mitt Romney campaign might make more sense if Obama practiced what his administration has preached. But he has not. “The most transparent administration in history” has practiced anything but transparency. The American people won’t suffer this level of horrendous duplicity much longer.

    Romney didn’t have any problems tearing down his republican opponents.
    He can’t pussy up on the Marxist Soetoro.

  • JOY444

    Romney doesn’t have the backbone to stand up to Obama!! He had no problem destroying his competition during the primary, however, he continues to show how weak he is and is just handing everything over to Obama for a second term to allow him to finish his transformation of America while destroying our Rights and Freedoms. It’s time for a wildcard at the Convention, Romney is not President Material, he is a Compromiser!!!
    Wake up America before you allow our Country to be destroyed.

      Neither of them are worth an American’s spit. Willing Willard has been under the Controllers’ direction for this campaign. OBoy is same but from his get-go. Watch O’s controllers slip away from finance and other support. Especially those who funded and protected in his last election. Why? They will have Oboy withdraw and turn it over to Biden who is a sure loser against their new boy Willing Willard who will be President. Oboy will be bumped along to appointed job title of Ruler of the New World Order. Better find out who those controllers are, folks, they also control the MSM. Start by removing the USSC Justice Ginsberg who railed against our Constitution to the Egyptians and who swore an Oath to uphold and defend it in order to put her butt on our Bench. Removing that one would pull strings and unravel a bunch of the controllers. Gotta start somewhere and her traitorous act is a perfect start.

    • Cyn

      Romney lost the 2008 primary to McCain the good commie senator. We know what happened here.
      Give it to the GOP to nominate another looser!

    Where are the Republican elected officials? Why are there no hearings in Congress?

    Sheriff Arpiao, Dr. Jerome Corsi, atty Orly Taitz (and others) have established that the bona fides of Barack Obama are – to say the least – SUSPECT. (The certification of live birth from Hawaii released to the public by BO/the White House on 4/27/11 clearly seems to be a forgery [it’s a layered document, out of sequence numbering re Nordyke twins’ certificates; the use of the term “African”; the code #9 penciled-in that indicates the field was blank per statements of V.K. Lee; the statements of Gov. Abercrombie; the refusal to allow inspection of the archived document(s) of the State of Hawaii and hospitals; BO’s relentless court battles to stop any/every lawsuit seeking his bona fides; that BO appears to be the original birther/birth-in-chief re his 1991-2007 agent pamphlet statement “… born in Kenya”, etc.]; the tampered with official stamp on on the Selective Service document(s); the use of the Connecticut SSA# yet BO has no apparent connection to that state; BO’s refusal to release his records [school; Illinois State Bar; passport; etc.] and the refusal of the lame stream media to even be curious about WHO BO really is.)

    The president of the United States, is supposed to be the leader of the Free World and is supposed to be the most powerful position in the World. Yet BO – who claimed to be Mr. Transparency – is anything but, and actually turns out to be Mr. Obstructionist. THIS CASE PRESENTS THESE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS: Why do we keep official records, if we can not see them? Why do we have court, if they do not take and resolve an issue as important as this? Where are the Republican in Congress? Why are they not holding hearings to get the answers and the documents to determine the bona fides of BO? Where is Mitt Romney on this issue? Why is the lame stream media SILENT?

    • Mitt should take a cue from McCain and see that low key mr nice guy does not work against the lying bunch in the white house. One thing needed by the GOP is a Speaker of the house with some backbone not a mr nice guy trying to get along. Make Allen West Speaker and that would be Obama’s worst nightmare. I have no idea who is advising Mitt but your comment above is a lot more positive than anything coming from the GOP camp.

      • Cyn

        Right on! I remember McCain being shoved down our throats as the nominee way back when! He was a token candiddate! Oh so very quiet about Odimbo!
        Now, Romney is the choice of the GOP ! He is not the peoples choice but the GOP’s choice.Shall we hold our noses again when we vote?The
        American People are being played for fools once again!
        It is 2008 all over again and we are the pidgeons! My prayer is that the pidgeons will come home to roost.

  • JohnWayne

    Obama has no right or standing to demand anyone release anything! When he releases his stuff, then Romney will release his! Shut your pie-hole Obama. Why don’t you try running on your record?

  • the_uglydog

    I have a suggestion for a few questions Romney should ask Obama in exchange for releasing his tax returns;

    Was Frank
    Marshal Davis really your father? You look alike.

    Were you really
    born in Hawaii?

    Did you have
    dual citizenship as a British son of a British Subject?
    (British nationality Act of 1948)

    Did you have
    multiple citizenship since you were adopted by an Indonesian?

    Do you know
    that the birth certificate you showed us is an obviously “layered”

    Did you apply
    for college as an Indonesian Citizen?

    Did you fail
    your classes?

    Were you really
    addicted to cocaine? .

    Are you really
    a member of a branch of the Communist Party?

    Were your
    college expenses really paid for by known Communist terrorists?

    “Forward” has been a slogan used by the Communist party for about 100 years, why did you choose it for your campaign slogan?
    Were you really
    forced to turn in your law license?

    Was Michelle
    really forced to turn in her law license? .

    Did you really
    associate and do business with known felons?

    Did you have
    Blagoyovich sell your Senate seat?

    Are you really
    a Muslim?

    Why are you
    using a Social Security Number issued to someone born in 1890 in Connecticut?

    Why do you have
    4 Social Security Numbers?

    Are you really
    an “Illegal Alien”?

    Why is you draft card different that everyone elses that year?
    Do you still
    use cocaine?

    Do you smoke
    marijuana in the Oval Office?

    I’m not saying
    any of this is true, but you’re hiding so much and you lie so often, I just don’t know!

    • Cyn

      OH yes! There is much to ask the liar in chief. Problem is that Romney will pull a McCain! This makes me wonder if Romney is not complicit with the whole of the GOP!
      Sorry folks but I can no longer ignore the deafening silence of the good ole boys!
      It is one thing not to conyrol the senate bt another to be silent about the truth! So then?
      Why is it that the tea party and Trump can open their mouths and the GOP does not?

      • the_uglydog

        The difference is the same as the difference between Patton and the soldier he slapped. Patton had no fear and knew the only way to win was to advance boldly and agressively, “to hold em by the nose and kick em in the ass”, as he would say, while the soldier was cowering in the rear afraid of the shelling. Now Patton by slapping him did restore his sence of honor and returned him to the front line. We need to do the same with the Republicrats.

  • elizabethksmith

    The way I see it – Obuma is in no position to demand anything!! All of us need to support Romney on his decision – it makes someone look weak to backdown.

  • Sam

    We’d have as much chance finding out in which state Obama changed his name from Barry Soetero as we would locating George Washington’s jock strap and cup that he wore in battle.

  • Gatech42

    If what the article states about the Executive Order that Obama signed on his first day in office is accurate, then I think Romney should ask Obama at the very first debate why he did this . . . I don’t think ole Barry could pull off an acceptable answer to that question !!!

  • Carol

    Things like this make America know both parties are just working together to cover each others butts and pretending to fight. All they are interested in , is who gets the power to put their hands in your pocket and steal you money. We will never get real freedom back till Americans wake up and exit the cool aid stand.

  • feedupbigtime

    There is plenty of evidence that Obama is guilty of treason and not a US citizen. That is not the problem. The problem is NO ONE has the guts to go after him. Covering their collective A$$es is more important than this country for them. I think it would take a nuclear blast in the middle of DC to move them!

  • feedupbigtime

    You are right about Romney not being a decent candidate. He is a mamby pamby, afraid to upset anyone type. We needed Herman Cain in there, he could have won. That is exactly why Obama’s minions went after him. It is also why the media has forced McCain and Romney on us. They are WEAK!!!


  • Why doesn’t Mittens demand Soetoro’s BC and other records?. Because he’s a damned wimp that’s why and because besides the fact that that he is a registered gopster (which doesn’t really mean jack squat) he is just a white version of the Mackdaddy anyway—his record speaks for itself….Obomney will sell this country out to the global banksters the same way Oblahblah has and Bush before him…why don’t people wake the Hell up?

  • Romney should ask Barry to show where he has put all his thousands of dollars that he has left over from his election. The money that his backers gave him, and he never used. Because I see where Barry tried claiming on his Tax Returns that he is broke. But what does he buy now that he is your President.

  • Romney and Boehner are handing over everything to Obama for a second term. But then this is what I expect from a globalist. Just like the one the GOP gave us last time, McAmnesty. Im about finished with the GOP. We need someone with gutts, and they dont have it anymore. They are only interested in Global money. The left with the UN and world government and the right with the global money. What a pair…….Babylon straight out of the book of Revelations.
