    With the fire lit under Willard's feet and growing by they day for him to release his tax returns like Obama and his own father has done, plus with a mounting stack of republicans calling for him to do so as well, it's looking like Willard may announce his VP nom early as a deflection.

    Except he won't.

    They are just going to keep stringing the Media along.

    Personally? I think Pawlenty got it. But look for Jindal if he gets desperate.

    Unless he asks Palin or a similar hot button personality no one is going to forget about his unwillingness to publish his tax returns. His previous attacks on Ted Kennedy will haunt him until November.

    Having 15+ of your own constitutes and counting doing so in just the past few days isn't no big deal, it's a 4 alarm all hands on deck inferno.

    Republican Voices

    Democrats pressing Romney to reveal more about his tax filings got some help from Republicans -- including two of Romney’s primary rivals -- who said it was time for him to offer up proof he has done nothing wrong.

    Texas Governor Rick Perry and U.S. Representative Ron Paul of Texas, who challenged Romney for the nomination, said Romney should divulge more tax records, adding their voices to former Republican Party national chairman Haley Barbour and commentators George Will and William Kristol.

    “The advice I would give Romney is: Who cares about your tax returns? Release them,” Barbour told ABC News in a July 16 interview. “We need for this campaign to be about Obama’s record.”

    The Republican-leaning National Review, in an editorial published online after its interview with Romney, echoed that view.

    Funny how the Dems are the only ones interested in Romneys tax returns.

    If he'd done something illegal the IRS would be all over his ass.

    Funny that I haven't read anywhere where the IRS is going through his tax returns. Must mean there's nothing to find.

    Its all big time deflection. What a fucking joke.
