If Romney Was Smarter...
He would comment on the dollars he paid in taxes versus Obama instead of percentages.
He'd spin it as patriotic that he's paying a ton to help out the middle class.
He'd lay out the total dollars Obama has paid in taxes. He'd say Obama's rich too. And he'd make the case that Obama doesn't care about the poor or he'd make himself pay more taxes like Romney does to help the less fortunate out.
Have a real conversation about taxes. Make Obama look like he doesn't understand math for using percentages. Talk about how much you're paying and how much gov't services you are consuming. Make it logical for the average American.
If these guys weren't so caught up in being douches. And marketing the sound byte.
