On the Left’s complaint that Mitt Romney intentionally paid too much in taxes to make himself look good politically…
The first claim was he didn't pay any. Now he's paid too much. You cannot win. You cannot satisfy these people, and therefore it is a mistake to try unless your objective is to illustrate who they are. But if you're really trying to please 'em, if you're really trying to get their approval, if you're really trying to shut 'em up, you never will and it's foolish to try. Look at the charitable donations. Romney's taxes are all legit. Nobody's claiming he broke the law. They're saying he paid more than he should have. And, again, isn't that what we've been hearing rich people should do? It's the patriotic thing to do, for crying out loud.
