Mitt Romney presents one enormous problem for Barack Obama's campaign: No divorce records. That's why the media are so hot to get their hands on Romney's tax records for the past 25 years. They need something to "pick through, distort and lie about" -- as the Republican candidate says.But Mitt isn't playing Obama's game and releasing extra tax records at his perfidious request. Go Mitt! After Coulter's exposing (well, re-exposing) the gory details of Obama's past smears, get this:
Obama's usual campaign method, used in 100 percent of his races, has been to pry into the private records of his opponents.
Democrats aren't going to find any personal dirt on the clean-cut Mormon, so they need complicated tax filings going back decades in order to create the illusion of scandal out of boring financial records.
It's almost like a serial killer's signature. Unsealed personal records have been released to the press. Obama must be running for office!Ugh. He would in a heartbeat, I know. And the ever-complicit liberal press would be happy to smear Romney and invent gaffes, as they have been on Romney's foreign tour. It's who they are and what they do. Still, I trust the Romney campaign to continue their smart campaign. All the lying and covering-up in the left aren't enough anymore, thanks to conservative media like Breitbart.
So you can see what a pickle the Obama campaign is in having to run against a Dudley Do-Right, non-drinking, non-smoking, God-fearing, happily married Mormon.
They've got to get their hands on thousands of pages of Romney's tax filings so that the media can -- as Romney says -- lie about them. It will be interesting to see if Obama can pick the lock of the famously guarded IRS.
