Romney, Taxes, the IRS, and Slithering

http://wonkette.com/518861/after-lengthy-downtime-mitt-romney-powers-up-to-explains-that-hurricane-sandy-wrecked-his-robot-dreams

Wonkette is all over it. But I would like to note a couple of things:

* The television media and right-wing radio dial have been relentless in their attempts to savage the IRS; one of the major attempts at public perception shaping is the attempt to delude Americans into believing that Republicans were disproportionately singled out;

* Romney has contrived to place himself back in front of the cameras, forgetting that God sends hurricanes to punish the evil, apologizing for himself and trying to look human;

* The IRS has a roughly 36-month investigative time-limit on audits from the date of filing; Romney had a habit of filing amended returns later in the year so that he could appear to pay more taxes during the political seasons;

* The Romney's 2010 taxes indicated that the Romneys were using a Swiss bank account in 2010;

Approximately thirty-some months ago.

So... there's that. I'm just putting it up there for your consideration. I must note that I have a bet with myself riding on it. Last September I suggested that Mitt Romney could prove to be one of the worst candidates in U.S. history, if his subsequent prosecution for tax fraud bled into the results of the 2014 mid-terms. So I am neither impartial nor reliable.
