In the end, Romney can release his tax records while Obama releases his college grades, thesis paper, etc. And those have nothing to do with birtherism. To say that calling for the release of those records is birtherism is using a sweeping generalization, as they have nothing to do with birth records, though Romney is too weak of a candidate to say this or fight for this.
What say you?
Lanny, the Hillary butt boy speaks.
I must have missed something in your post. Who in the MSM or which Democrats are calling for Obama to release his college grades and thesis paper?
Romulus needs to release his tax records. And Freddie Newt needs to release his detailed records of his work with Freddie Mac. Both need to release the details.
This isn’t even relevant. Candidates generally release such records when they win the nomination, not after they win Iowa. In 2008, Obama didn’t release his until late March.
Whoever the nominee is will almost certainly release their tax records in a few months. Absolutely nothing of any consequence will happen tomorrow regarding tax returns.
Lanny Davis is also a complete moron.
What poof does Lanny have that this will matter at all in the election?
The rats have their moles working inside the IRS. It is only a matter of time before the GOP candidate’s confidential income tax records are released. Ask Bill Simon. He was the GOP gubenatorial candidate in California a few years ago. Parts of his audit file mysteriously appeared in the press a few days before the election. Ask Joe the Plumber.
Baloney. We can do better but this won’t send Romney under.
As much as I despise the anti-RKBA, socialist leaning, big-brother loving liberal Rotney, and that ‘s quite a bit, I still respect the American right to privacy.
So I have no need to see any candidates tax returns in order to decide who I support.
Many corporate records are publicly available via stock holder reports, SEC filings, etc., if anyone really thinks a candidates business dealings are any of their business.
Didn’t Clinton “choose” not to release his taxes during the election because it showed Hillary’s fraudulent commodity trading gains?
The OBAMA campaign has stated that they will go after Romney and Lanny Davis is just announcing that the attacks begin immediately.
No need to attack Lanny or the Dems. This is going to be their strategy—attack the competition on their personal flaws because they can’t defend the actions of Obama.
Did Kerry and wife Theresa Heinz Kerry ever make their tax records public? How about John McCain and his rich wife Cindy? Politics has increasingly become a rich man’s and possibly woman’s game.
No one gets elected without big bucks. Perhaps it’s more healthy to vote for those who have inherited or earned their own megamillions than to vote for those who have not. Obama, for example, was so obviously a wholly owned subsidiary of someone. But it’s difficult to track that someone.
Part of Romney’s appeal is the fact that he’s turned around failing businesses and might be considered a financial genius. What could be better for the financially failing country? Ideology aside, of course.
