WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama called on likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns, in an interview with Univision released on Saturday.

Obama's campaign has been pushing Romney, a multi-millionaire former private equity executive, to release several years of his prior tax returns to shed light on how he amassed his wealth.

In an interview conducted on Friday and released on Saturday, an anchor for the Spanish-language network noted Obama had released his tax returns for 12 years and asked him if Romney should do the same.

"Absolutely," the president replied, according to a transcript.

"I think that it's important for any candidate in public office to be as transparent as possible, to let people know who we are, what we stand for, and you know, I think that this is just carrying on a tradition that has existed throughout the modern presidency."

Unbelievable statement coming from this president. This is a slam dunk opportunity for Romney ... which of course he will timidly ignore. Same for the conservative talking heads out there in radio land. Yeah, you know who I mean ...

Didn’t Obama already release the previous 12 years of his tax returns when he was running in 2008? If not, and if it’s such a crucial disclosure, why didn’t he?

Mitt should hire Newt to 'frame' his speeches. (Or study 'the best' Newt makes.) Mitt needs greater vision; and the vocabulary to articulate it. And he definitely could use some 'Mitt courage' in taking on Obama.

Yes, if Mitt can only find the same 'zeal'; and the rest needed to take on Obama.

Release all Americans from your marxist-tyrannical-bondage first by resigning immediately.

Why NOT a 'Set Your People Free' campaign? Or just stats on 'Black on Black' crime noted; not by general crime stats; but those life-long crimes brought to bear against poplations; by current and historical Black Leadership so as to challenge the conviction that Obama can only be 'redemptive'.

Or better; just tell the truth of Obama.

Jerk Romney should just release them. He is such a creep that I can just imagine what is in them. I can’t stand Romney. Hopefully Newt can win the nomination so I can vote for President this year.
