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?
Yeah, the same AEI
that includes Dick Cheney on its Board of Trustees:
AEI is the same group whose board of trustees includes Dick Cheney, Pete Coors, and bigtime GOP donors Mel Sembler and Harlan Crow

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.
