    I was away most of the weekend at a class reunion (Go Team Go) but when I came home and began watching the National Cable Channels again, I saw the following ad from the Obama Campaign:


    As many (if not most) of you know, I support his re-election. But I've got to tell you that this is an ad that didn't do much for me. I found the last 10 seconds where it speaks of the Governor's offshore holdings more effective than the first twenty seconds. As a CEO, sometimes, you must make hard choices that aren't appetizing. Making personal choices about where to stash your fortune to avoid paying taxes...that speaks to the character of the Governor.

    It would be preferable, I think, for the President to speak to the Governor's character.

    Even Obama took advantage of legal deductions.......so asking him to speak of Romney's character is kind of a stretch when he is sorely lacking himself.

    How does a person become rich?

    You sure as hell can't if you purposely set yourself up so that you have to pay higher taxes. That's why they pay CPAs good money......to minimize their liabilities and to strengthen their portfolio.

    This argument that everyone should look to pay more taxes is total crapola, because if you're not paying higher income taxes you usually end up paying more taxes elsewhere, ie. sales tax, property tax, etc.

    Hiding your money offshore while saying, "We're all in this together" isn't playing well which is why Obama is winning in the polls.
