This is actually a great twist for Romney if he takes advantage of it.
Now, all he has to do is say, “I give the IRS permission to disclose ALL my tax records IF I have failed to file taxes for the past 10 years.”
“NOW...I challenge Obama to release HIS records.”
OK, GOP establishment types will never play hard ball, so forget the second part. But the first part is PERFECT.
Please, somebody pass this along to the campaign and make sure I get credit.
Your suggestion has a lot of merit...the IRS can easily do that, in fact, for executive office appointees they do it routinely, with a permission slip to do it signed by the applicant. The report comes back: all returns filed, no taxes due and owing.
After he does that, all he has to do is say, well, Obama, I showed me mine now show me your college/birth/passport records.
