Searching for Chump’s tax returns

Former White House press secretary and Obama confidante Robert Gibbs is throwing down the gauntlet on Donald Trump. “Donald Trump said he’d release his tax returns as soon as the president released his birth certificate, so the ball is in his court now and I know everybody is anxious to see his tax returns over the last 10 years,” Gibbs told Politico.

Trump first floated the trade-off in an interview with ABC earlier this month. “Maybe I’m going to do the tax returns when Obama does his birth certificate,” said the real estate mogul, whose wealth has long been a matter of dispute. “I may tie my tax returns [to the birth certificate]. I’d love to give my tax returns.”

At a Wednesday morning news conference in New Hampshire following the president’s release of his birth certificate, Trump repeatedly ignored questions about whether he’d fulfill his pledge.

But now he’s being called out by one of the president’s closest advisers. What say you, Mr. Trump?

    The Chump is going to regret the day he thought he could play in the same universe, let alone the same court as President Obama. We are going to see some bare knuckle stuff from the Obama White House, and friends, in the months ahead.

        Needed for you to see this one, if you haven’t already, Chipsticks. I’m still trying to get my jaw off the floor!!

        It’s getting really tense for the Republicans when a former Bush cabinet member calls them terrorists:

        Ex-Bush official: Those who would block debt hike are like al Qaeda

        By Daniel Strauss – 04/27/11 01:34 PM ET

        Former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill compared lawmakers trying to block a debt-ceiling increase to terrorists.

        Former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill compared lawmakers trying to block raising the debt ceiling to “al Qaeda terrorists.”

        “The people who are threatening not to pass the debt ceiling are our version of al Qaeda terrorists. Really,” O’Neill, Treasury secretary in the Republican administration of George W. Bush, said Wednesday in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s InBusiness with Margaret Brennan.

        “They’re really putting our whole society at risk by threatening to round up 50 percent of the members of the Congress, who are loony, who would put our credit at risk,” O’Neill said.”

      Agree. I’ve had eagle eyes on Obama since his first moments—not his birth moments :)—-but his first political moments—-and I’ll just say, I agree.

      Hey Fred, when you have a moment, please let us know how you really feel about Chump 😉

      BTW – President Obama is demonstrating that age old adage that is so very true – ‘don’t get angry, get even’ 🙂

    Fred, I am more concerned about your space right now. I remember you were not feeling well a few days ago, so keep yourself calm. We need you here, Fred. The hateful people will not thrive on us because we are more focus on goodness for people, things that really matters to our people , and keep ourselves mentally and physically in tune with our better angels are the things we need to focus on now. I know,because I am upset and hurt. I also have a severe heart condition, leakage in a valve, and pressure to watch daily. But we are not going to allow this hatefulness to get into our space where it tears us and our family here into pieces of stress and pain. We care too much about you, Fred. I am eating a slice of delicious sweet potatoe pie(POTUS love sweet potatoe pie) on of my beautiful desert plates and sipping some lemon water. Candles are on. Place those things around Fred that will give you peacefulness, and enjoy something that reminds you of our great President. He needs this good energy coming his way. He gave us some of his this morning, now we give him some of ours.

    Ya’ll know that PBO and his team do not do anything without a plan. Sit back, relax, and watch a master out maneuver these clowns and haters. Remember, he plays chess while the others are playing checkers.

    It will also be intersting to see how much was donated to PBO’s campaign today in reaction to this nonsense.

    And Sarah Fat Mouth can produce her birth certificate for her baby Trig, and her medical records…psycho biatch. She stirred in this shit, now she can be held to the exact standards that she has demanded of our President. She has some explaining to do, and America is going to be upset with both her, The Republican Party and our sorry MSM, when the truth is finally laid bare.

      I do love it that Andrew Sullivan is not letting her off the hook on her lies. He’s taken a lot of heat from other journalists recently, but he’s still digging for the truth!

      Here’s what he said in a Harvard Magazine interview recently:

      “I was told: ‘Don’t touch this, it will hurt your reputation,’” he says. During a campaign when most pundits were, at worst, quizzical about Palin, Sullivan filled his blog with questions she was never going to answer. Did he pay a price? “I have become more of an outlaw in this town because I couldn’t hide my amazement from my peers—I’ve definitely become more alienated from mainstream media.”


      “The job of a journalist is to find the truth.” You know if there is one thing that television talking heads, newspaper and magazine reporters, authors, and even bloggers should all be able to agree on, it is that.”

        Amen to that! Americans should feel insulted by the machinations of our political media, They are intent on driving an agenda, not delivering information. And totally overrun with the opinions of their “exaulted”. I can formulate my own damn opinions, I have a brain and I know how to use. Honestly, do they think we are morons. I want the truth. Period.

        I admire Andrew Sullivan, even though I don’t always agree with his positions, he is able to present intelligent, respectful arguments, and he is not afraid of the truth And he impresses me as someone who is authentic, and not susceptible to editorial manipulation.

        Majii, I know that we read some of the same blogs that are Palin-centric, although I try to limit my daily exposure for the sake of my sanity. I hope this storm that is currently being stirred up over the Wild-Ride turns into a real shit storm. Palin, the media, the Republican Party, John McCain…they all need to answer for this fraud. We have to keep the pressure mounting.

    You are so welcome. I know that you are a focus person. I just care so much for my family here. Fred, you even inspired me to go downstairs and cook some fresh chard with chopped fresh herbs of rosemary, flat parsley, and fresh garlic in extra virgin olive oil with sliced zucchini and yellowcrook squash. Also cheated a little and steamed some jasmine rice. Squeezed some fresh lemon juice and organic saltfree broth over vegetables and placed them over a bed of steamed rice, and now I will relax until my heart wants to go so where there is good energy to take up my space. Okay, so thank you Fred. Also remember Fred, our FLOTUS would be proud of us.

    Oh man, I am loving this. My beloved Aunt Bess always told my mom “They pull my tail feathers, I’m gonna pull theirs.” The President is pulling Trumps tail feathers cause Trump pulled his. Good for him.
