Tina Dupuy, syndicated columnist and editor-in-chief of TheContributor.com, Imogen Lloyd Webber, political analyst and co-author of “The Twitter Diaries,” and “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer react to Mitt Romney’s decision to release his 2011 tax returns and speculate as to whether it will impact the race.
“Nobody minds that Romney is rich. In fact, it’s America — you sort of celebrate that. But the fact is, he can’t comprehend that the system is rigged in his favor,” Lloyd Webber says. “Normal people, they can’t go offshore. They don’t get amazing accounts to sort of cut all that money off their tax returns so that they can pay 14 percent, fundamentally.”
“I don’t care that he’s rich, I care that he doesn’t know that he’s rich,” Dupuy says. “I care that he doesn’t realize he has lived a privileged life because they keep on trying to sell this narrative that they had hard times. No, they haven’t. Not for people who really have had hard times. And if they don’t recognize that, then he can’t be the president for the entire country.”
