To "LDS Liberal" wow, you really suck into 100% false conspiracy thories. We should call you a "Taxer", if you believe that theory.

See the NY Times story "Tax Credits Shed Light on Romney". In there they state "American taxpayers who claim the foreign tax credit are required to report their total foreign taxes paid and tax credits used for the previous 10 years. So that return contains foreign tax data going back to 2000.

The good news for Mr. Romney is the forms suggest that he paid at least some federal income tax every year, as he has said he did."

The NY Times believes that Romney at least filed income taxes. If he didn't pay income taxes, did he do anything illegal? If he did nothing illegal, then he hasn't done anything wrong. If nothing wrong was done, who cares.

The problem is that Romney conflates the folks who receive government assistance with the group that supports Obama. They are not the same. The vast majority of folks on assistance are actually found in southern Red states (and Idaho) that vote Republican, and are not located in the more liberal coastal states that voted for Obama. Romney did not tell the truth to his wealthy supporters in the video clip, but they bankrolled him anyway because they heard what they wanted to hear, regardless of the truth.
