    That's different. 36 Obama aides owe $833,000 in back taxes. Yeah, that's different.

    AND it's the Christian thing to do. But where are the Christians?
    Jesus thought government and taxes were a good thing and a necessary thing or else he would not have suggested it and approved of it. Before govrnment and taxes were in place there are priest, judges, gleaning, tithes. How did we get from Jesus's socialism to capitalism?

    It is not really about whether he paid or did not pay taxes, it's about honesty and integrety of paying a fair amount and not using loop holes. if you want to be president. Shit, I never had any loop hole and most middle class amerians don't either. Christian bible and Christian Jesus said pay what is asked of you and looking for loop holes and tax havens are not honest. But ofcourse Romney never claimed to be honest.

    ps. 8.2% is a miracle considering if Obama had done nothing it would have been in the double digits. Get your heads out of your booties and take off the blindfolds and see the whole picture. All of the $4 trillion spending by Obama was result of fixing Bush's blunders and had to be done to escape a depression. Any one with half a brain, know Obama's success and know there is much work to be done and he is capable of doing it.

    Why is it the left uses jesus when it's politically expedient for thier cause?

    Did jesus say..."Give your money to government because they're going to take it from you anyway and they can spend it better than you can..."

    Jesus said render unto Caesar's that which is Caesar's, Render unto God that which is God's.

    Jesus was also talking about morality. how moral is it for Government to steal property of others and give to those that don't work for it, or refuse to? Make it a way of life?

    Pretending it is not is unpatriotic
