James Longhofer’s Aug. 13 letter assertively claims that “voters want to know” about Mitt Romney’s tax returns. After strongly insinuating that Mitt must have something to hide, Mr. Longhofer strangely left out the operative words “desperate attempt to avoid talking about Mr. Obama’s dismal record.” Then in a classic case of projection, he waded in and inferred through dubious innuendo that Mitt was “a dirty little liar.”
So where do we go from here to find out if Mr. Longhofer is incapable of independent thought (as many surely suspect) and is merely the local DNC shill? May I suggest that Senator Boxer (who typically spews the DNC talking points) come forward and support Mr. Longhofer’s contention that Mitt’s sinister and telling omission of the word “income” when stating he paid lots of taxes, is all but certain grounds for all citizens to conclude that Mitt is truly a rascal? Yet Sen. Boxer is silent? That speaks volumes.
Someone is trying to frantically distract Mountain Democrat readers from the issues relevant to this election — namely the performance of the current administration and the current state of the economy. Is it me? Is it Mr. Longhofer? Voters “might” want to know … and then again, they might not.
