Mitt Romney and the kindly people at the IRS

Is there any point to which you would wish to draw my attention?”

“To the curious incident of the dog in the night-time.”

“The dog did nothing in the night-time.”

“That was the curious incident,”

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Sherlock Holmes Sliverblaze

In its effort to leave no journalistic stone unturned the media is making startling discoveries; they have uncovered that Mitt Romney is a Rich Man. He has rich donors who give money to his campaign and the left doesn’t like it.

Now the next secret they hope to reveal is the question of Mitt Romney’s personal taxes.

This latest series in the: “Let’s talk about anything except for the economy” is notable because amid all the implications that Romney has something to hide, in every hint about impropriety, in every suggestion that within those Tax is the smoking gun that would shock the nation if only Mitt Romney would disclose it ignores one huge hole in the argument:

While this info has not been disclosed to the public it HAS been disclosed to the IRS.

Maybe it’s just me but if the IRS saw something untoward during in Mitt Romney’s tax returns, I have a feeling that they would not hesitate for one minute to pursue it and extract every penalty that would be due.

Now Warren Buffett for example has a big back tax bill that both the Huffington Post and the Blaze has reported on. Maybe it’s just me but I’m thinking if Mitt Romney had a similar problem, if he owed taxes, or had a big penalty or had to go to court to defend such issues we might just have heard about it during the Massachusetts Gov Campaign, or during his Senate Campaign vs Ted Kennedy, or the 2008 Presidential Campaign, or even in the primaries in 2012…

but we haven’t.

If our friends on the left and in the media want to make the case that the IRS is a passive group of people who wouldn’t have any interest in going after Mitt Romney or his money they are welcome to make that case, six days a week and twice on Sunday.

Somehow I don’t think that would sell.
