Anyway, my conference is going "the distance" time wise and I have very little access to Internet (let alone cellphone GPS) is available. As a result, please "hang with me" and stop back frequently to see if I have been successful getting back on. Even if I knew how to use my Droid phone as a server (which I do not), Verizon might let me down as my signal is inconsistent and weak overall.
Just about as weak is Ann Romney's comments that the Romney family tax returns is not an issue for further discussion, not because Mitt has released them, but because Ann has determined that "...we've given all our people need to know." Mrs. Romney has determined that the American people have no right to know anything further about their personal finances and tax returns. Excuse me Mrs. Romney, but this attitude is directly reminiscent of King George, whom we started a revolution against. Think about the parallels. The American Colonists complained to the King about taxes and regulations and King George responded that a King does not have to answer to the people, the people have to answer to the King. King George also went on to state that the American people did not dictate royal policy and that Americans were disrespectful to the Crown when making such demands. He also thought we were acting "Childish." Jump forward to Ann Romney's two statements. First, "It's Mitt's turn to be president." Really, I was not aware we have a chain or tree of succession (like a royal family), and second, The American people have a RIGHT to know virtually everything about our prospective presidents (even Mitt's dad released all of his tax returns when campaigning for president), and they have all traditionally disclosed personal matters when demanded by the people. Now Obama may have disclosed everything, but many simply don't like what he has disclosed. But Ann Romney sounds more like Queen Victoria by saying "We are NOT amused." Words of advice to Ann Romney...when the American people ask, you ANSWER!
Equally amazing is the fact the Romney camp has known about these tax issues since he became a public figure, and they still have no plausible defense or response to the tax return questions. Are we seeing a pattern here when Romney refuses to give specifics about any of his policies and instead insists he will disclose them after he is elected? I submit that Romney WILL disclose his returns and will deal with what they say, or else Americans will begin to distrust his honesty and his ability to serve as President of the United States. Somehow Ann Romney has shown again that Mitt Romney's relationship with Americans is a bad connection.
