People from both sides of the isle are openly admitting that Mitt Romney is really "Screwing Up" by not releasing his tax returns. Why not release them? His father did it. President Obama did it. Other presidential hopefuls did it. But Mitt Romney just won't, at least up until now. Yes, he did finally release his 2010 returns in January, but his delayed reaction led him to loose a Republican primary race in South Carolina to Newt Gingrich. Has he learned a lesson? I guess not because he repeatedly states that it is unnecessary to release more tax returns.
But "Even the Republicans are starting to ask: What could possibly be in his old tax returns that is worse than creating the impression he has something to hide?". He really did suffer allot of political damage in January, but he finally came clean, only now to delay the release of his 2011 returns until later this year by filing an extension. The Obama reelection campaign and Democratic interest groups are pressing Mitt Romney to release up to as much as two decades worth. Why not? Mitt's own father did.
Everyone knows that Mitt Romney is one of the wealthiest people to ever run for president. His net worth is said to be nearly 190 million dollars. It's hard to find a past candidate that was richer. Everyone knows that he makes money on his past business interests and pays minimal taxes on them. He makes more money doing nothing than President Obama does working in office as President of the United States.
It must not be too important for Mitt Romney to become President of the United States, because when the last Republican ran for office, the candidate of that time received 23 years of returns from Romney, as Romney attempted to become McCains choice for vice-president?!!! Still, McCain did not choose him. Why? Maybe there is just too much black grease in the returns that would automatically disqualify him to run for Vice-President. Doesn't he think it's going to come out in the wash now? More so now because he is not running for VP this time, he is about to become the Republican nominee for President of the United States, to run against an incumbent President who already has released his previous tax returns.
If he wants to run toe to toe against Obama and wants people to believe in him and trust him, then he needs to provide the tax returns. Every day that he refuses to do so will bring up more and more suspicion of him. Maybe he thinks that he can get away with it, or at least not present the returns before the election. But maybe what is known by a few people who have seen them may automatically eliminate him as the nominee, thus he most likely has something to hide. If it's that bad, why would he chance loosing the election for his party, and allow President Obama to gain his second term in office? It must be a disease call idiocy, or maybe there is part of his brain that must be brain dead, the common sense part of the brain.
