Twice overlooked for the VEEP spot, Tim Pawlenty (who once infamously said "Children who are victims of failed personal responsibility are not my problem, nor are they the problem for our government.") went on TV to help get Romney back on track and off the Tax Returns train wreck. So, how did TBag do?  Let's look!

Too funny! TBag: "...not dangle 20 year old tax returns..."  Stephanopolous: "You did bring up the tax returns - how many years of tax returns did you provide to the Romney campaign?"  TBag: "Ummm, did I (cheney) up? Go off message??!?"  TPT: "You betcha, TBag!"

So, Romney looks at tax returns before he picks who is (and isn't) going to run with him, but the people can't look at Mitt's returns before they pick the next President??!?  Two thoughts:

1) Mitt's returns must be really, Really, REALLY bad, and:

It's just another pathetic example of: IOKIYAR.

No matter what the issue, IOKIYAR.

And Romney's "I have to look at yours, but nobody is looking at mine!" act, brought back into the spotlight by TBag, is simply today's example of You Couldn't Trust The GOP Then, You Still Can't Now, And Tomorrow Won't Be Any Different.

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.
