In other words, typical election year hypocrisy by truly desperate hack pols:
In stunning examples of hypocrisy, though, Pelosi, Reid, and Wasserman-Schultz all refused to release their tax returns when asked by McClatchy Newspapers.
“The leader has filed a complete financial disclosure report as required by law that includes financial holdings, transactions and other personal information,” Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami told McClatchy.
At a news conference, Wasserman Shultz said, “I file full financial disclosure required under the law” and refused to release her tax returns.
Reid also would not let McClatchy look at his tax returns.
In recent weeks, Pelosi has said Romney’s failure to release his tax returns makes him unfit to even be a Cabinet member while Reid said it made Romney unfit to be even a dogcatcher.
Wasserman Schultz said Romney’s refusal to release his returns was an example of Romney’s “penchant for secrecy.”
“Required under the law.” Funny, that’s the same reason Romney gives for refusing to release more of his returns. But then, that’s different; there’s an “R” after his name, and the Democrats have nothing else to run on, so they have to create distractions, plant doubt and suspicion, try to divide people on class and ethnic lines.
Thus we get Romney’s dog, Ann Romney’s horse, the fake “war on women,” voter ID equaling a return to Jim Crow, outsourcing, and so many other “Look, it’s Elvis!” moments.
Because the facts of their collective record of abysmal failure are all against them.
PS: Mitt Romney 2012, because I don’t care what he does with his own money. I care what’s done with our money.
