    We need to remember this about the tax records. It will not change, in all likelihood who Governor Romney is unless he has some very deep and very dark secrets. If it is revealed that he was funding Al Queda, I guarantee you that the most surprised people on earth will be Obama, Axelrod, Chris and myself.

    At worst this only presents a political problem for the governor. He's running for office so politics matter and the longer he waits, the worse it's going to be for him. However, his refusal to release them is not going to change one substantive thing you know about Romney unless there is a very dark side that hasn't been revealed yet.

    I suspect Romney is the most well vetted Presidential candidate in history and I seriously doubt that there is anything there...in his taxes or his closet. I suspect the guy's squeaky clean.

    Further, I don't think anyone really gives a crap about his taxes. He's rich, we get it. He has foreign accounts, so what? I've had foreign accounts. Point is, I think relatively few care about such things and if they really do, they're already voting for President Obama.

    One thing, his tax records are nothing like invoking executive privilege over gun running. Funny how the tragedy in Colorado will be used by the left yet gun running by the administration that led to Americans being killed, no problem.

    I hope you're right. But history shows 100% of the time that when someone looks to decide what is important to voters, they get their ass handed to them. I recall some of my democratic friends saying the same thing about Lewinsky....how the President didn't need to do anything but just keep denying.

    Eventually, Romney will release more of his tax records. I was simply trying to caution everyone that it isn't going to change any of the substance of the elections unless there is a very big skeleton in the closet. If there is one, I'll be as shocked as anyone.

    Absolutely agree. Of course, it will never be enough or the whining retards here, but he will release more, and he gets to do so when he wishes. There is no requirement nor should there be. If the IRS has an issue, there would be a court record. This is nothing more than a "Look, he's an evil 1% guy!" ploy. Pathetic. Shows how little they have to talk about.
