Completely misses the point. How could he not be prepared for this? He’s been running for President for a decade and it never occurred to him someone might ask to see his tax returns?
It boggles the mind that he wasn’t prepare to answer this.
Maybe he thought the Media would treat him like they treat Obama.
“...and it never occurred to him someone might ask to see his tax returns?”
Hell no! It’s what, four years later and we’ve not seen Obama’s college transcripts? His academic applications? His Birth certificate?
Oh, did I say his birth certificate?
Why should Romney worry about his tax returns?
I don’t like Romney and I don’t really get a rodent’s rectum about his tax returns, but I think that any and all questions like this need to not only be ignored, they need to be thrown back in the questioner’s teeth.
I think the Romney should say flat out, “I’ll release my tax returns the day Obama releases his transcripts — and all the other papers he has so carefully hidden from the American people.”
This is gone on long enough. It’s time the media did what it is supposed to do and thoroughly vet Obama!
I’m wondering if this reluctance is about Romney’s charitable deductions. Media should ask for a list of those, say for the last few years. That list might be very instructive.
