"How immensely ironic that a man who pays far, far less than his fair share of taxes would characterize people who don't pay taxes as moochers. Here is a man running on a platform that would decrease his own tax liability and the tax rate of people like himself; a man who has used offshore accounts and other tax avoidance strategies, and who has defended that behavior by saying he'd be stupid to pay more than he owed, denigrating Americans who don't pay because they don't owe.

"Before the GOP convention, we were told the American public needed to be introduced to the 'real Romney.' I think we just were."

-- Former Indiana Republican congressional candidate, Sheila Kennedy, on her blog post about Romney's "macaca moment."
