President “Open book” – Tea Party Nation

President “Open book” – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Sometimes you just have to laugh at some of this stuff.  Barack Obama decided to do a press conference of sorts today. 

 The results?  Priceless.

 From Mediate:

 President Obama took a question from NBC NewsChuck Todd who asked whether he thinks that there is something hidden in Mitt Romney’s tax returns which could be potentially damaging to his candidacy.

“There is a difference between playing by the same sets of rules and doing something illegal, and in no way have we suggested the latter,” said Obama.

Obama went on to illustrate this point by saying that the returns that Romney has so far disclosed indicate that he made use of a Swiss bank account. “Well, that may be perfectly legal but I suspect that if you asked the average America, ‘do you have one?’ ‘Is that part of how you manage your tax returns?’ They would say ‘no,’” said the President.

Obama said that he thinks that, as well as other details of Romney’s personal finances, are relevant information for voters.

“I think the idea that this is somehow exceptional – that there should be a rationale or a justification for doing more than the very bare minimum – has it backwards,” Obama continued. He said that voters expect Romney to release as many returns as past candidates have, including his own father.

“The American people have assumed that, if you want to be President of the United States, that your life is an open book when it comes to things like your finances,” said Obama.

 President “Open Book” has spoken.

 If the media were not in the tank for Obama, this would be funny.  Well President “Open Book”, how about opening up.

 Let’s start with your birth certificate.  The real one, not the fake one that you released.  How about your college records?  All of them.  Inquiring minds want to know, since you said anyone who wants to be President should have their life as an open book.

 Did you go to school as a foreign exchange student?  Your records that you have never released from Occidental and Columbia would tell us this.

 How did you pay for Occidental?  How did you pay for Columbia?  How did you as a mediocre student get into Columbia and then Harvard?  And how did you pay for Harvard?    Who wrote your reference letters for Columbia and Harvard?

 Obama thinks Romney should be an open book?  Real Americans think that kind of openness should apply to Obama.

 Mr. Obama, show us your records!
