This segment of Ann Romney's ABC interview this morning has gone viral on the Left and in the MSM. It's about forty-four seconds in. It is being spun as snobbery and class-consciousness. If FR hadn't been down this morning, it probably would have been extensively discussed.

Should this not bother me?

I agree with the Romneys. When ALL of Congress and the Occupier in Chief show ALL of their private info, then maybe the Left would have a point. Otherwise the MSM and the Lefist morons need to get over themselves.

Adding: Also, Mitt Romney holds NO office at this time, he is a private citizen. As an American I wouldn’t want my stuff under scrutiny, nor should I be expected to give it because someone is having a hissy fit.

Eeesh. Though I get where she is coming from. Never good to refer to the commoners as “you people” when engaged in a class war with communists while trying to win an election.

What is the legal release of tax forms for running? How far is one required to show? Has he done that? If not, he needs too. If he has then this is a mute subject

Mrs. Romney states:
“there are so many portions that will be open
again to more attack ...”

So, ignoring that it is WEAK to have Mr. RomneyCARE’s
wife always defending him, she should probably
have not declared that the reason for no transparency
by Team RomneyCARE4all is that there are
“portions that will be open again to more attack”.

That triggered the MSM to talk about holding things back and the Left to start screaming that they were covering up fraud.

This could not have been scripted, as it should have been.

I don't care if it's Romney, Newt or dennis kucinich. He has given what in the past is acceptable.

If Romney chooses to give more for whatever reason then that's up to him.

We've gone 3 and a half years without really knowing where the current president was born, who are his parents and everything else that he may or may not have done.

I say it Obama’s time to start opening up.

It needed to be said and she did a good job of saying it.

The Presidency will be a huge burden on the Romney family.

In my estimation, they will serve and then leave - just as was intended.

I do not believe in magic underwear; however I do believe in both the power and vulnerability of the family.

So does Ann Romney. She should be the candidate based on that response as far as I'm concerned.

"Enough already" has its place and it was well-used in this circumstance.

Too bad our future President had to send his spouse out to say it.

You are mistaken.

Mr. RomneyCARE should be transparent because
he should WANT to WIN, and he could have
forced Obama to release more
— by showing TRANSPARENCY
and explaining it.

Instead, neither side has transparency.

Instead, Mr. RomneyCARE is not in this to win,
but to make money.

Even so, they are already elected. RINOmney isn’t.

Unfortunately, his team seems to be flubbing this up enough that it will stay in the news, defining him and keeping him from getting a message out.

It doesn't matter. This is just the sound bite the Dems have been waiting for to shift attention away from Obama's "somebody else did that" remark. This is going to be all over the media for the next couple of weeks.

You really need to get over yourself on this one. Mitt's baby-daddy is the guy who started this business of Presidential candidates revealing their taxes. He released 12 years.

If you don't think this generational battle in a single family isn't revealing.............. all sorts of things........and with Ann appearing to have a political tin ear these people could be insufferably stuffy.

I guess he has no intention of being a well beloved and honored former President like, perhaps, Abraham Lincoln ~ see: http://www.nps.gov/abli/planyourvisit/boyhood-home.htm

Actually, she is wrong.

Mr. RomneyCARE is the candidate, and
he will release them with transparency OR the MSM
will bring this up every day
(which is obviously what the chosen LOSER wants).

A decade's worth?

You have a source on that?

Even Donald Trump, a man well in tune with anything having to do with tax returns, says it's just two years. Others say it's 2010 and an estimate on 2011.

No, don't be silly. I am much worse because I'm one of the Conservatives this jerk has decided should be kicked to the curb.

I also know the Conservative points to make using the same information the leftwingtards dig up. They really have no idea what's persuasive ~ in fact, they glossed over the abortion related materials because, as we all know, they love to kill babies ~

If you think intrafamily conflict (dirty linen) isn't useful when you deal with stuffed shirts who imagine they have too much money to solicit your vote, you got another think coming.

The Romneys can be made to appear to be running a contest with the Kallikaks.

Do you really want to see he tax records so you can see how rich he is that is already known. Do you think he is a tax cheat I don't but I am sure he is using tax loopholes that are legal along with many other rich people including movie stars and athletes. If I was rich I would do the same thing.
Even if Mr. Romney released 25 years of records or 12 years which no others are doing do you really think the media would be satisfied. The media hates Romney and anyone else who doesn't bow to Obama this includes you and they will never have your best interest at heart. Your suspicions should be directed at the media.

No, I have no interest in his tax records OR how much
he made. It is not relevant.

BUT IT IS STEALING ALL THE OXYGEN OF THE CAMPAIGN
WHICH SHOULD BE DIRECTED AGAINST OBAMA.

But you forgot, Mr. RomneyCARE always defends his Obama.

I’m curious: do you despise Obama as much as you despise Romney?

Or do you kinda sorta LIKE obama, and kinda hope that he gets another four? Maybe the COLA will be better for ex-postal employees under The One? Or some other personal benefit?

‘Cause I never see you rip on Obama like you do on Romney.

Ross Perot used the phrase several times while speaking to the NAACP about inner city crime. As insensitive as that was, not much was made of it, since, IMO, Perot was useful for the Democrats by splitting the Presidential vote.

Why would it bother you?

Romney is wealthy, by any measure.
The legal requirement for POTUS candidates is one year of tax returns be made public.

Romney complied.Did you read over that information?
End of issue.

Unless you believe, as does the current POTUS, and the entire Democrat party, that successful men and women are innately evil, I don't understand your problem with the legal filing requirements.

Mitt Romney Sends Leftover Pizza to Obama Chicago HQ
After spending the day in Chicago fundraising, Mitt Romney
sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."

You are nuts. I've been around here many years and everybody knows what I think of Obama.

So, why aren't you up on the personalities at FR? Is it perhaps the case you only come around at election time for the purpose of harrassing Conservatives or something?

We are watching for you guys ~ and we are making an offer. Go convert an OBOT to a MITTBOT ~ that'll get all the votes you need, and you won't need mine.

The Presidency will be a huge burden on the Romney family. In my estimation, they will serve and then leave ...

None of them -- no Romney in Romney's clan -- has ever served in the military. No uncles, no sons, no brothers, no fathers or grandfathers. Not a single one. Nor any of Romney's strapping sons, but the breathtakingly arrogant Romney assured folks while campaigning a few years back that his sons could be compared to American soldiers in the Middle East, because his sons were "serving their country" by campaigning for Romney.

The worst part is that most of the folks on the verge of voting for him, know he's a Trojan Horse ... but plan on voting for him anyway for ONE reason: they're scared crapless of Obama.

Sometimes you don't need hindsight to see 20/20 -- and you don't need hindsight to see that decisions made in fear are usually bad ones. It's already clear as day that voting for Romney is a bad decision. People admit it -- they justify it by convincing themselves that Obama would be worse because they've allowed themselves to become so convinced that with Obama, *resistance is useless.* Zombie-like, they buy into it to justify rolling over and voting for a politician they KNOW is a mistake and always despised.

I hope that before November, people start investigating other risks and options such that cool calculation, courage, and willingness to take risks, overcome fear. Resistance can WIN -- rolling over always loses. Risk is the price you pay for opportunity. There's zero risk with Romney, as it is 100 percent certain that he will make liberalism more powerful in both parties. Hence Romney presents zero opportunity.

Facing down an Obama re-elected on a plurality where the majority of Americans voted for somebody else (with Clinton, the first plurality win was follwed by the Republican Revolution; the second plurality win was followed by impeachment proceedings against Clinton, so don't for an instant think that popular mandates don't matter), facing down a defensive, weakened, mocked Obama rejected by the majority, and having a Republican-dominated Congress with increasing numbers of conservatives within it, is a risk alright, but that's the price for opportunity.

I'm voting third party at the top of the ticket to give the conservatives I vote for down ticket the best opportunity to stem the tide of statism. Voting for a statist, whether it's Obama or Romney, will ONLY bring more government tyranny. Voting to make statism weak is the ONLY way we can bring this nation back to a rightward course.

There are no military veterans in Romney's family or background. To hell with expecting him to "serve" America.

I’ve been around here many years, too — and I’m not so sure I do, anymore. That’s why I asked.

Is that all there are in your universe? ‘BOTs? Nothing in the middle? I thought you were smarter than that, muawiyah.

>> you won’t need mine.

I couldn’t care less who you vote for, personally. Or if you vote at all. The number of direct FReeper votes isn’t enough to turn an election for dogcatcher in a medium-size municipality. What blows me away is how supposedly conservative FReepers are using the premier conservative website to smooth the way for a known Marxist to be elected POTUS for four more disastrous years. Talk about useful idiots!

"Presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney on Tuesday turned aside Democrats’ calls that he release more than a decade’s worth of tax returns, arguing that it’s the White House, and not his campaign, that has a transparency problem."

From the link in the post to which you're responding.

AND

Rahm Emanuel: John McCain Looked At Romney’s Tax Returns And Decided Palin Would Be A Better VP McCain looked at two decades of taxes in 2008, PLUS the two years 2010 and 2011 that were just released. Not that this was the true reason they chose Palin afterall it is EMANUEL'S opinion.

That should be plenty. The LEFT, to name a few, are being A$$eS
