    Default Tax Returns

    Romney is not helping us by withholding his tax returns. He should open his records, show his college transcripts, and his birth certificate. The say "OK, let's see yours". He is only hurting himself by stonewalling. If there is something there, he has done the Republican party a great disservice by running at all, if there is nothing there, he needs to come out immediately with the returns. Speculation will only cause problems.

    Do you really think that showing HIS Harvard transcripts is going to determine whether someone votes for him or not ? if he releases his,is that a guarantee that BHO will release any of his...if I were advising Romney, I would have him release records as necessary, the last cards havent been dealt yet, no need to divulge anything...NOW come debate time I would like to see him on national TV have all his transcripts in hand and challenge BHO to divulge all of his...then it becomes put up or shut up time

    Problem is that the news outlets are piling on with Obama's attacks and apparently the tax returns are going to be a big part of that. Stonewalling is not going to work in Romney's favor. Personally don't give a rat's ass about Romney's transcripts, would only release them as a counterpoint to Obama's refusal to release his.

    Romney should tell Obama to show his college records and after those are all released he will release additional tax records! That should shut Obama up since we all know something is hidden in those!

    Certainly won't shut Obama up. He has already proven that he can be elected without revealing his transcripts. I think that they will harp on Romney's tax returns and beat him over the head with them unless he releases them. Double standards may not be fair, but clearly they can be effective. Romney has to get the swing voters to win. I think the smear campaign may be able to sway just enough of them to put Obama back in office.

    I agree. What we need is a "document throw down." If Romney were to make public his tax filings plus his college transcripts and heck, throw in the birth certificate, he could say, "There are mine. Where are yours?" That way the whole issue would either die or become a horse collar for the President.

    Thank You! Pretty much my point exactly.

    Actually what we are saying is use Obama's own claim to openness and truth against him. Instead of making it look like Romney has something to hide, give'm what they want and then say "O.K.now let's see yours". Then if Obama continues to stonewall, that't the yoke around his neck.
