Yes, it is called flying the kite or feeling and tasting the waters. Yep, you heard Icheoku right that Mitt Romney is finally ready to dump his tax records on America and pretty very soon. The latest admission that he paid thirteen percent in taxes these past ten years is a prelude to finally releasing his long awaited tax records. Mitt Romney understands fully well that his tax records is a big albatross standing between him and any dreams he has or might have for the White House. His every move is currently being checkmated by his clever by half obstinate refusal to let Americans know the type of person who wants to be their president. Americans want to know whether Mitt Romney is a tax cheat? Voting Americans want to know if Mitt Romney is a tax fraud? Americans are curiously asking did Mitt Romney game the system? Americans are anxiously waiting an answer to the question, did Mitt Romney pay taxes on his income at all and at what rate? And finally, Americans would like to know if Mitt Romney paid his FAIR SHARE of taxation. All these are fair inquiry and The Mitt would be better served if he becomes more forthcoming with the answers and sooner than later too. Mitt Romney cannot run rings around the subject and the more he tries to skirt through them the more they come charging back at him and in Jimmy Cliff's own words - HARDER THEY COME.
So Icheoku would like to know what The Mitt is hiding from the American people whom he wants to be their president by refusing to let them see his tax records? American people demands FULL COMPLETE DISCLOSURE from anyone who wants to lead them; that is the tradition and Mitt should and would not be an exception. The rule is clear - if you want to be our president, we need to know who you are otherwise stay clear and no one will bother whether or not you laundered money or gamed the system unreasonably. Listen to this son of a gun respond to his tax question, "I just have to say, given the challenges that America faces — 23 million people out of work, Iran about to become nuclear, one out of six Americans in poverty — the fascination with taxes I've paid I find to be very small-minded compared to the broad issues that we face." Icheoku says this is the man who wants to be president, saying a country is "about to become nuclear" and you wonder if former President GW will not be a professor of the spoken English Language compared to this disaster waiting to happen called Mitt Romney, should accident happen and America is cursed with his presidency? Icheoku queries, how can a country become nuclear or is the Mitt expecting us to complete his phrase by adding the word "power?"
Anyway that aside, Mitt Romney is saying that the country's fascination with his tax records is "very small minded", right? Icheoku says that is not the case as a presidential candidate personal finances is a fair game since it throws light on the honesty and lack thereof as well as fidelity to country of such a candidate. If as it is becoming apparently clear that Mitt Romney is a tax-cheat, then the country has no place for such a fraud in its presidency, period. Assuming every American games the system as Mitt apparently did, where did Mitt Romney expect the money used to sustain the many things America does and stands for to come from. Nope, Icheoku says to Mitt Romney that the country's curiosity for his tax records is not small minded but the big elephant in the room and until he does right by Americans with the release of all his tax records, the issue would continue to bog his campaign as it suggests strongly that he is hiding something from the voting American public that will torpedo his campaign if disclosed.
Furthermore, Icheoku admonishes Mitt Romney that the one in six Americans that lives in poverty according to his voodoo estimation is courtesy of his ilks who have hijacked all the money in America and stashed it up for only their nuclear family selfish use. This is the man who would not pay his fair share of taxes to sustain programs for the needy of our society, yet he cries foul that poverty is taking over America? Possibly when our Lord and Master Jesus Christ delivered his sermon about the Pharisees, he had this Mitt Romney in mind? Anyway let us hope that his latest admission that he paid a paltry thirteen percent when other Americans with far less financial chest were being taxed at more than thirty something percent, is a first step towards letting Americans have a glimpse on the taxes he paid or failed to pay to Uncle Sam. Until he develops the courage to release his tax returns, Icheoku will continue to align itself with the very popular demand that Mitt Romney should release his tax records. In the words of Adam Jentleson, spokesman for Senate Democratic Leader Reid, who responded to the current Mitt Romney's admission that he paid far less in taxes than the average Joe and Jane working class American, "We'll believe it when we see it. Until Mitt Romney releases his tax returns, Americans will continue to wonder what he's hiding."
