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."

Didn’t FOX just ask Obama to release his school transcripts? Shouldn’t Mitt add his voice to that?
Theinvisiblehand calls on Obama to go fry his scrawney black ass.
Just another muteable moment from Obama.
You got it, Mulberry.
“Obama, release your school transcripts. The nation deserves to understand how you amassed your vast reserves of ideological idiocy.”
Of course we do actually know. Bill Ayers told us and Obama signed the title page (”Yo! I’m Barry Soetoro Dunham Obama and I approved this message yo.”)
And in the interest of “FAIRNESS” - I’m sure Mr. Obama will be happy to release the following -
1) Marriage license between Obamas father (Barak Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) not found, not released
2) Obamas baptism records sealed
3) Obamas adoption records sealed
4) Records of Obamas and his mothers repatriation as US citizens on return from Indonesia not found, not released
5) Name change (Barry Sotero to Barack Hussein Obama) records not found, not released
6) Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii) not released
7) Punahou School financial aid or school records not released
8) Occidental College financial aid records not released. (These records were, however, subpoenaed but Obama lawyers succeeded in quashing the subpoena in court. No other Occi records have been released.)
9) Columbia College records not released
10) Columbia senior thesis not released
11) Harvard Law School records (not mentioned below, but not released)
12) Obamas law client list sealed
13) Obamas files from career as an Illinois State Senator sealed
14) Obamas record with Illinois State Bar Association sealed
15) Obamas medical records not released
16) Obamas passport records not released
This is a golden opportunity to say “Sure, I’ll release my tax returns - just as soon as you release your passport records, college transcripts, and all the other stuff that you’ve spent millions hiding.”
make a deal Mitt - Obama remove all seals to his records at schools, universities, State dept., court houses, etc and Romney will release five more years of tax recors.
Indeed; Obama is totally full of them.
Certainly a schizophrenic MO going on w/Obama. Whether related to that scar on his skull; or just 'ideologically induced'; it really does not matter. His bobble-head disciples (aka 'useful idiots' ) neither notice; nor care to.
“just ask Obama to release his school transcripts”
School transcripts are not enough. I want to know which mullah paid for his Harvard education. There’s a potential conflict of interest there with all the wars going on.
Sure. When Obama releases his college, selective service, law school. passport, et records.
Never a better prescription for failure. We have way too much evidence, that shows, when Repubs foolishly, turn 'truth to a weakness'- as they appear compelled to do - failure follows.
We are left to only hope they have figured there really IS an ENEMY in our midst - and the truth of that; must be dealt with - up front and head on.
Sure, nobama. Release all Americans from your marxist-tyrannical-bondage first by resigning immediately.
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 ...
You can say that again!
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?
Let’s hope Mittens goes after 0bama with the same zeal that he used to take out Newt.
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.
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.
