I don't think he'll look at them, so I'll describe what's there.
Tax returns all the way back to FDR. I haven't looked at every single one of them. Surprisingly, Gerald Ford released no tax returns. He must be from
You'll notice two things after previewing a few of these returns. Many of them are obviously redacted with clumsy black markers. Others are redacted
with neatly located black bars. Others are "whited out"--you can tell when the whiteout gets on the border of the box.
Now some look like they are just blank; like the SSN was "not provided". But note one thing....an official IRS 1040 Individual tax form has two
vertical dotted lines that separate the SSN elements-- 000 | 00 | 000. On the returns that look blank, those two lines are missing. They've been
covered with whiteout or other masking material.
Net result? Every president has obscured his SSN in tax returns. Without fail. It has been done with various methods. Meaning that Obama's tax return
does not stand out as anomalous in any way. In fact, you can clearly see on his 2006 return where the SSN was clumsily whited out.
you don't think i'll look at them? this website was one of the main premises for bringing this up as a talking point. i don't appreciate your attempts
to belittle my character, nor the ideas i'm presenting to clarify this situation.
i'm at work, and was discussing this in the middle of my shift. it's unfortunate you're so quick to jump to conclusions about the mindstates of people
you don't even know.
anyway, Joe Biden's tax returns are also both not there on some and blacked out on others. none of Obama's tax returns present this same pattern - it
is all either blank, or has white spaces in between.
his tax returns do look different from this perspective. carter's returns are over 30 years old, and i cannot vouch for what the process was like back
then. bush's tax returns have some as ommitted, others as provided and redacted.
it could be something, and it could be nothing. the amount of animosity being thrown around just for simply bringing this up is ridiculous to begin
with. i'd like to focus on whether or not there's any merit in questioning how this information is displayed. to me, it seems anomalous when compared
to how his vice president's tax returns are uploaded. the same procedure was not used on Obama's returns as they were on Biden's. to me, this is
enough of a reason to dig deeper. press secretary Gibbs didn't do such a great job at presenting a clear rebuttal for this either when faced with the
question of whether or not Obama ever had a SS# tied to an address in Connecticut.
but no, sorry.. i didn't answer your post within 10 minutes, so i must be a nonsensical 'birther.'
