Drip, drip, drip for Mitt

No, Mitt's too un-American to be president
After his less than stellar trip overseas, the Mitt-wit Romney returns to America with a devastating Newsweek cover and declining poll numbers even as he raises more money than President Obama.

Rasmussen Reports, which leans heavily to the right, now has Obama with a 2-point national lead.

And Intrade keeps showing Obama with a lead among bettors that keeps widening.

Of course, none of that really matters. Ohio, Florida and Virginia will decide the next president, and right now they favor Obama.

Even Nate Silver, who had Mitt's chances of winning Florida at just over 50 percent, now has Obama's odds of winning Florida at 56.2 percent.

The issue of taxes continues to dog Mitt like a family mutt strapped to the top of the family station wagon.

He's unable to respond to the charge that he paid no taxes for much of the past 10 years or that he would rather keep his cash anywhere but in the United States.

Now, the L.A. Times reports that a man worth $250 million hassled San Diego County to lower his tax bill by about $109,000 over four years.

I'm sure Mitt tithed those savings to the Mormon church. (By the way, check out a recent issue of Time magazine for an article on how Utah, and the Mormon church, condones polygamy.)

Mitt would do anything to keep his precious money out of the hands of the country he believes he's entitled to lead.

Let's hope that all the money Mitt has hidden, plus all the dough's he's raised, entitles him to an epic defeat in November.
