Romney: "Not qualified to become president"
Yep, he said that last July when he said that, if he paid more taxes than what he actually owed, "I don't think I would be qualified to become president."
Well, now that he has released his 2011 tax returns, it shows that he DID pay more than what he actually owed as he claimed $1.75 million less in charitable donations than what he actually donated. If he'd claimed all of his donations, his tax rate would have been just a little over 10% instead of the 14% he did pay. So, now we know why he waited to file the final return - he had to make it conform to his claim that he always paid at least 14% of his income in taxes each year.
Of course, that then conflicts with his statement that he wouldn't be qualified to be president.
Oh, dear. He's dam*ed if he does, dam*ed if he doesn't. It's just so hard for him to campaign with integrity. Unless, of course, he'd just release all his tax returns and keep his mouth shut about his being qualified to be president (which he isn't, IMO). But, then, anyone can grown up to be president, right? At least if they have millions of dollars and billionaire friends willing to buy the office for you.
