John McCain’s Freudian Slip: “I am absolutely confident that [Romney] did not pay taxes.”
FFW video to 2:28:
Jon Ralston: Did you ask your team if Mitt Romney did not pay taxes?
McCain: I am absolutely confident that he did not pay taxes. …I mean that he did pay, excuse me, that he did pay taxes.
Notice McCain didn’t answer Ralston’s question. But McCain’s answer is revealing anyway because he’d just finished explaining that in 2008 he had a team who reviewed the tax returns so McCain himself never saw anyone’s returns. Regardless, he’s “confident” Romney
did not did pay taxes.
