Mitt Romney says, he paid the legally-required amount of taxes, and we wouldn't want a president who paid more than the legal amount, would we?
Personally I'd be quite comfortable with a president who figured his taxes simply and without inventing heroic dodges to avoid paying his fair share, like whatever he did to accumulate tens of millions in his IRA, when the yearly contribution restrictions make it nearly impossible.
Romney apparently believes only a fool would fail to exploit every loophole. It does not even occur to him there are more noble ways of thinking.
This modus operandi is well evidenced in his business dealings as described here: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-07-15/romney-s-bain-yielded-private-gains-socialized-losses.html .
There is no trace of introspection or social concern in this man. We certainly don't want him for our President.
