We’ve Given All You People Need to Know



In other words, fuck off, peasants.

Ann Romney has given the Democratic Party a gift that will keep on giving well into late October. If they're going to stonewall, let them stonewall. See where that gets you with the American people. They love it when a politician gets caught hiding something.

For the record, I think that the Romney tax returns are completely legal and beyond reproach. I think they demonstrate a skillful manipulation of the tax code and they highlight the divide between those who pay taxes and those who don't. The Romney returns likely show millions of dollars being sheltered overseas, a decade or more of being completely zeroed out, tax-wise, with no taxes paid and a massive accumulation of wealth in a 401K that would shock most retirees.

What is legal is not always ethical, and, if you're running for President, you should have figured out that difference years ago. Apparently, Romney's greed exceeds his ability to use common sense.

But I can't stop laughing at this:
“We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life,” she added later.

You people? Really? Tone deaf much?

Someone has failed to explain to Mrs. Romney that, when speaking to the lower classes, the use of "you people" is a pejorative that simply will not please the marketing people in the Romney campaign who are trying to increase the likability of the brand.
