Mediaite: Pain Capital: Jon Stewart Destroys Mitt Romney Over His Tax Returns (VIDEO)

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/pain-capital-jon-stewart-destroys-mitt-romney-over-his-tax-returns/

On Tuesday night’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart lambasted Mitt Romney over the controversy brewing over the Republican hopeful’s much-scrutinized tax returns. “Exciting news!” Stewart zinged. “Mitt Romney’s 560 page 2010 tax return has been made public! It’s an exciting topic that in no way needs zazzing up. So let’s get right to it in tonight’s segment!” Stewart then blasted up on the screen a chyron screaming ‘Happy Clown Tax Jubilee!’ “As you know, when it comes to if and when Mitt Romney would release his tax returns he has been nothing if not consistent.”

Stewart then played archival footage of the former Massachusetts Governor saying, “I don’t intend to release tax returns.”

“Miiiiiiitttt!” Stewart scolded, and showed him finally coming around to releasing his tax returns immediately after much dithering.

A 9-minute video clip at the link. Enjoy!

I especially liked the part about Bain Capital's lobbying to keep taxes from being raised.

5. Even the 57k a day is a Fox spin.

They forgot to give Mitt a weekend.

365=57k/day

260 days = 82k/day

Now if he paid 30% taxes and got his weekends

it would be back to around 57k/day.
