With US embassies under siege, Obama campaign turns focus to Romney’s taxes

The lapdog media did its best this week to demonstrate President Obama’s strong command of foreign policy through the wayward route of attacking Mitt Romney’s criticism of the administration. Would Obama’s own campaign team pick up the slack and use social media to talk up the president’s foreign policy expertise?

Nope. As you watch footage of angry mobs tearing down the gates around the U.S. Embassy in Yemen and burning the American flag, we know what’s on your mind: Mitt Romney’s tax returns. Let’s see what Team Obama had to say today about the siege of U.S. diplomatic outposts overseas.

For Mitt's VP vetters, 10 yrs tax returns were good for the goose, but they still won't give America a gander at HIS! http://t.co/Hj1pcJ4q

Squirrel! Again!

Just 54 days from Election Day and Romney still refuses give voters as many tax returns as he demanded from his VP: http://t.co/Z2FNcNzc

Newsweek reports that Romney asked Paul Ryan for 10 years of tax returns. So why will he only release one year? http://t.co/Gyb3QVfM

Mitt Romney wanted 10 years of tax returns from Paul Ryan to vet him. So, why has he only given voters one return? http://t.co/HZknB340

Mitt Romney asked Paul Ryan for 10 years of tax returns, but he’s only released one full year of his own: http://t.co/q33LY77V

If Romney wanted 10 years of tax returns from Congressman Ryan, why does he think Americans only deserve one from him? http://t.co/Mqm58HHg

RT if you agree: Romney should come clean and release his tax returns so voters know whether he paid his fair share.

It looks like it’s up to the media to carry the president’s water on this one. Be patient, Team Obama; they’re doing their best.
