Don't get to our daily biased -- now and you know it's a good day when Cal Thomas joins us from his undisclosed location how.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- Jonathan it's always nice to be with someone who speaks the king's English the way it was intended to be spoken well I'm not sure about that but my mother would -- -- but -- -- my head if I haven't for a chose to do it any other way -- so I tell we have this ongoing debate all of last week.
-- over and -- governor Romney's tax issues and whether he should -- released ten years of tax isn't senator Harry Reid saying.
I have a source Adobe didn't pay any taxes -- for ten years how do you think it's being covered.
Well it hasn't been too -- actually the facts behind the New York Times has a story today as does the Washington Post -- nobody has raised the point that senator Reid.
Meet these accusations on the senate floor not an interview with a broadcaster cable network.
Not off the senate floor while he's on the senate floor he can -- virtually every thing or anything that he wants.
-- and he can even libel or slander someone and he's protected as a member of the United States senate.
When -- senate is in session.
The same standard about Romney releasing his tax returns the media have not -- President Obama.
To that standard about his -- law school records about his transcripts.
About any other thing.
About the inconsistencies.
In his dreams from my father both early now trickling out thanks to some excellent work by David -- and some other people.
We still don't know the full story on President Obama and this is again the Democrats play -- your last yes very very interest -- debate.
But if the Republicans and conservatives and media allow them to get away with -- I continue to debate this based on who's paying their fair share of taxes.
Republicans are going to lose the debate ought to change tube does the government spend too much.
You're trying to track and you are deprived the government -- money is like trying to deprive Dracula blood it is their -- -- to mix a metaphor so I think the media needs to do far better job of finishing the job they never even began four years ago when President Obama and I think that conservatives especially the conservative media need to step up the attack on a Harry Reid is Howie -- by the -- did yesterday in an excellent column in the Boston Herald.
-- all of a different.
Aden in the background of a presidential Canada.
That in your school ref calls for instance.
It's well look it's -- it's all the same piece senator Reid is using the media to accuse.
Governor Romney of hiding something because you won't release more than one or in this case two years he said -- release this year's returns as well.
Of his tax returns and yet.
He has done everything that the law requires he's not breaking any law so.
If senator Reid is going to make full disclosure for presidential candidate.
The standard then he -- to equally demand that President Obama.
Disclosed so what wasn't disclosed in the media didn't demand that he disclosed four years ago when he was running for president.
Did he have something behind.
Did he get a special deal Harvard what were his grades -- he benefit from affirmative action did other people get denied certain placement Harvard because of him.
We don't know the answer to any of these things Michelle Obama -- area.
A graduate thesis I believe it was auto race in America that's been sealed as well so if somehow governor Romney is hiding something in the media and -- senator reader beating up on him.
For allegedly doing this then why don't they apply the same standard of the president and mrs.
And add to tell but it this is isn't this -- sort of old a tactic that a lot of politicians these.
I -- I remember reading a story once and you you might know better than me but I think it was about Lyndon Johnson when he was running for some all -- in Texas.
Who suggested to one of his campaign advisors -- suggests that dollar opponent kind of back has Connell knowledge of his -- -- And the and the advises that no we can't be that he said well -- we can't exactly say that but we can make damn well shall that he has to deny it is an apple is not common.
That's very good what a memory you have yes that's absolutely right not to mention dead voters arrest.
-- when you get I don't want some people call the silly season and it seems like almost anything goes but I do think that there is a standard of fairness.
We hear the liberal media talking about fairness especially in the New York Times all the time.
When it comes to taxes and full disclosure.
But if they're going to raise them as the standard than everybody ought to be held equally to -- you can't demand one thing from one candidate and not the same from the other that's what's unfair.
All right Cal Thomas always great to have you -- cal one -- when you feel that it's safe enough would you leave -- -- one thing -- and -- -- -- with us.
