My tax returns that have already been released number into the hundreds of pages. And we will be releasing tax returns for the most current year as soon as those are prepared. They will also number in the hundreds of pages. In the political environment that exists today, the opposition research of the Obama campaign is looking for anything they can use to distract from the failure of the president to reignite our economy. And I’m simply not enthusiastic about giving them hundreds or thousands of more pages to pick through, distort, and lie about.
In this particular case, I totally agree with the governor's decision.
We are dealing with one of the sleaziest and immoral political campaigns in my memory, and since running on the president's record is impossible, virtually all they have left is the politics of destruction. We have already seen how the Obama Campaign has been willing to blatantly lie and distort the governor's tenure at Bain Capital, aided and abetted by their lackeys in the media.
In fact, before anything further is released, if I were Governor Romney I'd ask for a quid pro quo, and call on President Obama:
There are a number of other things I could mention concerning this most secretive and hidden of president that the American people have a right to know. Full transparency, right?
Until President Obama comes clean, I don't see any reason to point fingers at Mitt Romney.
Instead, this president can do what a leader does...provide an example he wishes others to follow.
