Media, Obama Coordinate Romney Smear
Media, Obama Coordinate Romney Smear With Pro-Occupier's 'Vanity Fair' Article
The first thing you need to know is that everything Mitt Romney is obligated by law to reveal about his finances he has revealed.
That's a fact.
A fact the likes of Politico's Alexander Burns (remember him) and the Washington Post's Greg Sargent leave out of their concern-trolling over what this Vanity Fair article written by Nicholas Shaxson just might mean for Mitt Romney.
Dems are circulating the magazine’s deep dive into Romney’s offshore accounts, tax loopholes, and carried interest. The article suggests that Romney is the poster boy for a kind of financial behavior that pushes the boundaries into “murky” and “gray” areas — words the article uses frequently — and sketches out the degree to which the Romney camp has not been forthcoming about the details of his financial holdings.The Obama camp will use this to continue raising questions about Romney’s commitment to the middle class and whose interests he’d really represent as president..
One of the themes of the VF piece is that while we know how Romney characterizes his finances and his taxes — Romney says he doesn't dodge U.S. taxes and operates his money within the bounds of the law — there's not enough information available to verify that publicly.You can see exactly where this is headed, right?.
