Not even 24 hours after his debate performance and Mitt Romney puts up a new ad aimed at debunking President Obama's (accurate) assertion that Romney's tax plan math doesn't add up and would require either a tax hike on middle-class or bigger deficits. Romney cites an "independent" and "non-partisan" analysis. And who might that source be?

My oh my. How very non-partisan of them.

Oh, and in case you're interested, the way they get Romney's tax plan math to add up is to assume that will generate massive economic growth, thereby making up most of the shortfall. In other words, their analysis depends on a magic asterisk.

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.
