Are we there yet? Are you at a point where you’re actually beginning to feel sorry for this guy… a guy we affectionately call Flip Romney because of his rather uncanny abilities to lie?
Well if not there yet, here’s another example.
Flipper over the last few weeks have been under increasing attacks Democrats to release his financial documents – a practice that began when his father George Romney, released 12 years of his taxes when he ran for president. But Flip Romney so far, has only released his 2010 taxes and a projection for 2011.
Romney’s taxes are important for a number of reasons, but mainly to show the American people that he is transparent in every way and has nothing to hide. Various reports however, have surfaced showing foreign investments by Romney in offshore tax havens like the Cayman Islands and other Swiss accounts, so naturally people are concerned that the next president of the United States could be a man who made money investing in other countries betting against the American dollar.
To combat this assumption, Romney is going around on the campaign trail claiming to have nothing to do with these investments. The investments were done by a “blind trust” he says, and he knew nothing of them or where his money went.
Well that’s all fine and good if it was the truth.
However, the video below shows Mitt Romney contradicting himself yet again. In 1994 when Romney was campaigning against Ted Kennedy for the Massachusetts Senate seat, Kennedy used the Blind Trust excuse to explain some of his investments. The 1994 Romney dropped this bit of information: that blind trusts are an “age-old ruse.” His exact words – “The blind trust is an age-old ruse, if you will, which is to say you can always tell a blind trust what it can and cannot do. You give a blind trust rules.”
So what are we to believe now Flipper? What are we to believe now!!!
