51. Willard's "Zero Sum" Game...

Rmoney was "willing" to admit he paid 13.9% on his 2010 and 2011 returns. Hmmm. It's was assumed all his money now comes from capital gains (15% rate) and that this has been his sole source of income for years. The dirty secret may be that using his accounts and accountants, Rmoney didn't pay anywhere near 13.9% at all...more like 0...finding loopholes and deductions to paper over his wealth. He may have even orchestrated a way to earn refunds through the manipulation of "loses", deductions and charitable donations. How would it sound if it was discolsed that Willard hasn't paid a dime in taxes for the past 25 or more years? Not good at all.

As far as the source of any damaging info...does it matter? Mittens hasn't really endeared himself to many thus it could have come from someone who vetted him on behalf of Gramps McCain or a former accountant or employee (surely Mittens employed several) who got screwed along the way.

The mud that Rmoney is getting stuck in...as he did in the past...is even if all he's done is legal, the perception and the amount of time that it takes him to explain it makes people suspect that he's either bent the rules or had them bent for him. There's reams of research and polling that shows the "Richie Rich" meme hurts Willard in key demos and has been driving the numbers in President Obama's favor.

Regarding the timing...I'm enjoying Team Obama playing the Faux game...putting a ? in front of the words Rmnoey Tax Return. The longer the question mark remains the more damaging it is for Mittens. If there's a real nasty revelation ahead this is setting the stage...
