pass on this one, please.  this is a molehill and shouldn't be turned into a mountain that could very well be dropped on the next conservative/republican candidate who made a mistake on his/her taxes.  whatever else she's guilty of, she's doing the right thing with the issue - clearing it up and paying the back taxes - which is about all one can ask of anyone.  the better approach to this would be to take it up and wave it around as just one more example of how the tax system in this country is broken, when even someone like Ms. Tlaib can make a mistake like this:  how could the democrats object to us putting Ms. Tlaib in a positive light on this issue and not blaming her?  The only way they could counter an argument like that would be to paint Ms. Tlaib in a sinister light as just one more evil tax evader, which they are most certainly not going to do.

It seems the democrats could have done a better job of vetting the person who put Obama's name in nomination.  To me, it says more about the democratic party than it does Ms. Tlaib.

fair enough, but there isn't really any good way to exploit that point without besmirching Ms. Tlaib, which will inevitably give rise to charges of racism, etc., that would simply cloud up the issue and leave the GOP, once again, with rhetorical egg on its face.  It strikes me that the better way to exploit this is to hit the the-tax-system-is-so-badly-screwed-up-it-needs-total-reform hot button and say something like "see, the problems with the tax system in this country are bipartisan, so the solutions should be as well."

I agree but the real problem is every time conservatives balk at exposing such things, the more empowered the left is to use the "hate speech" card.  I can't say I have an answer unless it is the right gets some cajones and takes their lumps for a while until people start to see what the left is doing.  And once started, they can never let up.  That is what Hitler said to do and EXACTLY what the democrats are doing.
