I'm not worried about about what Romney does with his own money. I want to know what the hell is doing with ours (mine) !!!

I am much mor interested in the records regarding Obama's past. Romney's tax records are of no concern. HE's rich. Good for him. it's none of my business .. Or yours.

Besides, Mitt submitted many years returns to McCain when he has being considered for Veep. What's different now?

There is a precedent for how many years tax returns. What the law requires is no longer Germain. The law is only the minimum, customary has become the defector standard set by George Romney. The elder Romney had a wise concept.

ShellyLeft ... Why does the left need more fodder? They know he's wealthy.

The real question is why did MrO go to the extend of c
Sealing his education records ... There must be something he doesn't want you to know, right?

It's great when a liberal like RJ can admit when he's wrong. Mr Romney is clearly innocent as no foaming at the mouth MrO lovers have proven any misdeeds with his taxes. Mr Romney paid his taxes on funds in the Caymans. Five people close to MrO, including Valerie Jarrett have money in Swiss banks

RJ ... You and MrO both share at least one thing in common ... both of you are incredibly immature and thin-skinned.

You love to dish, but when the question is close, you lash out. I respectfully suggest you check your view of MrO's birth certificate and Mr Romney's taxes. Fascinatingly parallel.

MrO is pushing for Mr Romney to publish his taxes because MrO doesn't have ANYTHING else. It's pathetic especially when we have real issues with the economy.

MrO, why haven't you met with either the Simpson-Bowles Commission or the Jobs Council? You talk about the importance of ...

RJ ... Read your own post and substitute Mr Romeny's name.

Beyond that ... Why seal the records? Remember, it's your pal, MrO who is desperately pushing for Mr Romney to publish records he doesn't have to while he's sealed his own records. MrO is the hypocrite and must go!

GrowUp, look up the Presidential Records Act of 1978.

Just an FYI, in the United States, we are innocent until proven guilty. You have no information to say otherwise and the President of the United States of America doesn't have to prove anything to your pin-headed ass to address your delusions.

NYevo ... When did Hilary Clinton ask for MrO's birth certificate? And when did he finally "disclose" it?

I could care less about the birth certificate, but do not suggest that he was either timely or transparent. He mocked those who asked as he "disclosed" the birth certificate. Is that mature?

Jagger ... MrBush spent too much money. Mr Bush, and the Democrat controlled Congress should have pulled back. MrBush should have rejected Democrats like Barney Frank who were obviously culpable in the financial collapse in the housing industry.

MrO made it worse and MrO must go!

GrowUp Minnesota

Jagger .. The real question is ... which former presidential candidate PAID to have his/her transcripts sealed? Who does that? Certainly NOT someone who is proud of the record.

Is this MrO's idea of transparency?

It's no wonder he couldn't get a job in the private sector! MrO must go.

RJ .... wrong! When I graduated from college, I had to make my transcripts available to my potential employers -- each and every one! The saw the A's, the C's and the class I had to retake.

Why would MrO go to the extreme of PAYING to have his records sealed unless he had something to hide?

I think it's funny that the people who want to see his college transcripts are the same ones who never graduated from college.

@GrowUp: Obama disclosed what he was asked to. So should Romney.

Only if Obama releases his college records

I am ashamed of my fellow conservatives. He should release them w/o precondition. Just b/c Obama is a liar and a crook doesnt mean we should play the same bs games he has. If u got nothing to hide, put your cards on the table.
If all they can dig up is u are rich then they are in real trouble.

Maybe John McCain saw a problem no?george Romney paid an average of 37% taxes in 12 years. His son paid 15% in two. He is 11 and a half times richer. Who cares what he is worth. Pay the same as everyone else. Release em.

NYevo ... it's fascinatingly hypocritical for Democrats to talk now about experience and transparency as they relate to the "steering" the country.

MrO never had training wheels, let alone a license to drive the "car". His only successes were the things he didn't change from Mr Bush. MrO must go!

NYevo ... Open book ... you mean like MrO? Haha

If Mr Romney follows the MrO strategy for disclosure -- that is wait nearly four years -- then Mr Romney will surely have no argument from Dems, right? MrO is a hypocrite who will do anything to divert attention from his failed leadership & policies

Could it be that not everyone has something to hide, like MrO? Is that possible? Yep!

John McCain looked at 20 years-worth of Romney's tax returns when he was vetted for the VP spot. Then, he picked Palin. It makes you wonder what he saw that made him pick that winner.

The law changes because it is recognized to be faulty or grossly unjust. All the loopholes in our laws are"legal" so does that make a person upright? Let the debate be more intelligent please.

07/20/12 11:51 pm

The problem with a lot of arguments here is that we base a lot on what is "legal" lie that is the ultimate. We forget it was legal to segregate, enslave, discriminate. nonsense. When you get a mortgage, you are pretty much naked then someone wants to get elected and common tax returns is a problem??

07/20/12 10:48 pm

I hope Mitt Romney will have the courage to stand his ground and set the precedence of only release what is required by law.

To paraphrase my other... Just because other candidates jumped off a cliff, it doesn't mean Mitt Romney should, too.

Perhaps the reason Obama has accomplished so little to date is that he temporarily retired prospectively on his first inauguration, planning to actually do some work on a leave of absence from retirement retroactively when he is inaugurated for he second time. Like he wasn't even there, Mitt style.
