Adviser says Romney to release 2011 tax return by October 15

Republican U.S. presidential challenger Mitt Romney plans to make public his 2011 tax return by October 15, a senior campaign adviser said on Sunday, as President Barack Obama's re-election team pressed its criticism of Romney's decision not to disclose more about his personal taxes.

Romney, a former private equity executive who is one of the richest men ever to run for president, has come under pressure for months from the Obama campaign to release more years of tax returns.

He has released his 2010 tax return and estimates for 2011 but does not plan to reveal more years of returns. In April, he requested an extension from the Internal Revenue Service to file his 2011 tax forms, while estimating his tax liability at $3.2 million for last year.

Romney needs to use the old commie DemocRAT trick. Tell the ‘RATS that he uses Turbo Tax and call that good enough. If it works for the ‘RATS, it should work for the GOPers.

I think he should keep ‘em guessing, like 0bumbazz has done ever since he entered the picture.

Let’s see ALL your records 0dumbazz.

delay delay delay I love it! Tell that commie Axelrod to stick it.

Team McCaine was brain dead and had a brain dead candidate. Romney is a different deal

In the White House I will take Mormons over Marxists any day of the week and twice on Sunday! Mitt could bring in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir every Sunday for all I care. Just get that butt ugly, jug eared Kenyan saboteur out of the White House

Screw 0pansy and his threats. Romney has said as much. The tax records of Romney are 1. Not required by law. 2.A distraction by 0pansy to avoid talk about 0pansy and the 0pansy plan to destroy (or better yet, are destroying) the country.

It sounds like Barack the Kenyan STILL doesn’t want to talk about the economy. The boys from the commie ‘RAT party only want to talk about Mitt Romney’s income. Strange.

Romney should have his accountant release a redacted copy of his returns showing only the total tax he paid each year along with how much he gave to charity.

The accountant should also release a notarized statement swearing that these are the correct amounts.

Way to look weak, Myth. Let the commie thugs have their way with you. Don’t “lower” yourself to beat them at their own game.

They want 2008 Tax Returns. They suspect (and they may be right, and the may have inside info on it) that Romney participated in the Swiss Bank Amnesty program. Mitt is probably hoping by releasing this years, it’ll please most people. I think most people could care less if he did the Swiss Bank Amnesty, but the Dims/Media would hammer him over the head with it relentlessly and would push everything else (jobs, budget, obamacare) off the table for the rest of the election.

2011 is last year, and he already said he’d provide these. This is just a more detailed answer on when to expect it.

My only criticism is to stop talking about it all together, and keep the heat on the economy and Obama’s failed policies.

The beauty "WIN" part of this is: Obama is on a weak offense, as long as he continues on this, the more Romney & Ryan can focus on OBAMACARE.

Obamacare is the only reason that Obama wants to divert attention to something else. He is scared Schitless of PAUL Ryan, plus he can't run on HIS RECORD.

Heard it said on News this morning, that more Seniors are afraid of Obamacare than they are of the Ryan plan.... me & many of my senior friends included.

Advice to Obama, Stay stuck on Stupid, stupid.

This Mitt is a whimp. Why isn’t he using this to constantly attack Obama on his transparency.

OH, and By the WAY. Romney/Ryan should bring out Joe the Plumber on the campaign trail, just for the, “I told you so moment”

He already promised he would give the 2011 returns. I don’t think anyone gives a rat’s behind what Obama wants but these two tax returns were already promised.

I am sure you do. School records, birth certificates why do most people not know who Obama really is. He should be challenging the media to revet Obama. The way the media dynamic is currently working Mitt can be questioned and doubted on everything and they give Obama a free ride to the next election.

McCain let the media do the same thing. Mitt better find some fight now or he will go down the same path as McCain. He needs to get on the front foot by questioning the media and their assertions.

Romney needs to ask publicly what the Obama campaign is willing to release in return. Specifically ask for 100% cooperation in releasing the Fast and Furious documents and correspondence, specifically ask for all educational and passport records for the _resident and specifically challenge the media to demand the same since they were woefully derelict in their duties 4 years ago.
