Oh, hell no! I have seen this movie before and I know how it ends. Remember Tricky Dick Nixon's "secret plan" to end the Vietnam war in 1968? (by waging a "secret" war in Cambodia and Laos).
Well, the "Galt - Gekko 2012" campaign today said they don't have to disclose no stinkin' details to the American people about their "secret plan" to close tax loopholes until after Election Day. How long are the American people going to tolerate this farce of a campaign? Ryan: GOP ticket to wait to disclose tax specifics:
Ryan tells [the fact-free world of FAUX News] that - quote - "that is something that we think we should do in the light of day, through Congress."
Ryan says the GOP ticket wants to get feedback from Americans about what tax cuts should be kept and what loopholes to close.
Wait a minute, isn't the GOP's boy genius supposed to be some kind of 'budget guru"? He doesn't want to explain his "Roadmap to America's Ruin" GOP Budget to the American people -- instead he wants to ask you what he should do -- which will immediately be disregarded in favor of the lobbyists for the corporations and billionaires whom the GOP serves.
Just how stupid do these guys believe Americans are?
UPDATE: Greg Sargent writes at The Plum Line:
It’s official: Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have both confirmed in interviews that they will not be revealing the specifics of their tax plan before the election. Which is another way of saying that these two self-styled deficit hawks have no intention of revealing how their plan would actually pay for itself, rather than explode the deficit, until they’re in the White House. Voters — and, presumably, the news media — are expected to take this on faith. How will the press respond?

Ryan is widely accorded the designation of being fiscally “courageous” and “serious,” on the strength of his repeated warning that the country faces fiscal apocalypse. He repeatedly vows that the Romney-Ryan ticket won’t duck “tough choices” in getting the country’s fiscal house in order. But both are explicitly confirming that they see no need to tell us what those “tough choices” will be until after the election. Needless to say, this is by definition neither courageous nor serious. Could this be made any clearer?
