ROMNEY: Please don't ask me about Paul Ryan's Budget
   Within minutes of Mitt Romney announcing Paul Ryan as his VP pick, Romney shoved a dagger in Paul Ryan's back and sent out "talking points" (also known as GD Lies) to reporters distancing himself from the Paul Ryan Budget.

2) Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have different views on some policy areas -- like Medicare spending, entitlement reform, labor, etc. -- do you think those differences are going to hurt or help?

~ Aug 11, 2012 Romney memo distancing himself from Paul Ryan

   Got that media peeps -- don't ask Romney-Puppet about Paul Ryan's Budget cuz Romney has flip/flopped on that.

ROMNEY TO OBAMA: Please stop asking me about my taxes and Bain
    MSNBC Chuck Todd interviewed Romney where Romney said he does not want President Obama or the Democrats talking about Mitt's taxes or Bain experience:

"Romney also said in the interview he would like a pledge (of sorts) with Obama that there be no “personal” attack ads.

ROMNEY: “[O]ur campaign would be-- helped immensely if we had an agreement between both campaigns that we were only going to talk about issues and that attacks based upon-- business or family or taxes or things of that nature.

First Read Interview with Mitt Romney

       Romney pretends he would prefer the campaigns “only talk about issues,” yet Romney refuses to give details on any of his policies.

ROMNEY: Please stop scoring my Tax Plan:
     In March 2012, Romney gave an interview on Squawk Box saying the Media should stop asking questions about Romney's Tax Plan because, according to Mitt, Romney's Tax Plan cannot be scored since Romney refuses to give details on his Tax Plan.

"Governor, on your Tax Plan, there has been -- some people who have scored it and suggested that it could cost us $3Trillion Dollars ultimately. How do you respond to that?"
"If you take a look at your Tax Plan, obviously there are a lot of different ways it is scored but H&R Block has something out that says for a family who is making over $700,000.00 if they apply your Tax Plan to it, that family would end up paying a little more than $50,000.00 LESS IN TAXES.  

"What I put out in my plan is a series of PRINCIPLES that will allow our economy to grow and at the same time maintain a neutral budge impact SO I HAVEN’T LAID OUT ALL THE DETAILS of how we're going to deal with ech one of the deductions and exemptions.  I think it's kind of interesting  for the groups to try and score it BECAUSE FRANKLY IT CAN'T BE SCORED BECAUSE THOSE KIND OF DETAILS HAVE TO BE WORKED OUT with Congress and we have a wide array of options.

        Well, clearly Romney has no plans and no details  -- so typical for No-Plan-Flip-Flopping-Romney

      So, Romney's campaign boils down to: I want you to hate Obama and vote for me.

      Romney is hiding something huge so he refuses to release 10 years of filed Tax Returns.

     Romney is hiding something huge so he refuses to release details for any of his policies.

     Romney is a pathological liar who cannot be trusted.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
