This has been bugging me since yesterday. The Hill published this filler post about Slippery Mitt’s tax returns.
A top campaign official who worked for Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential bid and helped select his running mate said Sunday that Mitt Romney’s tax returns “do not look anything like the average American,” but held nothing which prevented him from being on the ticket.
Steve Schmidt, McCain’s former campaign strategist, who viewed Romney’s tax returns when the presumptive nominee was being vetted for the vice presidential slot in the last cycle said Romney was an “extremely wealthy man.”
Wait. Would this be the same Steve Schmidt who claimed he didn’t see the tax returns only a few days ago?
Is it too much to ask that our professional media gatekeepers ask Mr. Schmidt to explain this glaring inconsistency? With journalism like this it’s small wonder the public is so misinformed.
