No. I have an idea why. I would just like to know what is so important that you and what you would be looking for. Simply saying I want to see them to me is not a reason.


Transparency

Its done in good faith for the people of the USA.

It is classless what Obama is doing. There has not been a sitting POTUS that has campaigned like he has EVER. Wow, you have found a few. How about Gore NOT wanting an endorsement.

This is called moving the goalposts back.

But should we not be asking that of a current administration, no matter who it is, for transparency before a nominees tax returns? I guess i have different priorities.

There is nothing in a tax return for a candidate that would change my mind during an election so I guess this is a matter of personal choice on what means the most.

Irrelevant. There isn't a 40 year established and uninterrupted precedent against what you are talking about. You are just trying to distract from the issue here.

No it's not. It is admitting that I said endorse when I should have been more specific. Being more specific is not moving back it is moving forward.

You mean like that unwritten rule of not endorsing as a sitting POTUS?


That has never been a rule that I've seen followed for as long as I've been alive. In fact, this is the first I've ever heard about it. So even if it was a rule, it was broken LONG before Trump.


I think its more like respecting the position of the leader of your country.

I may not always agree with him (her), but he is the leader of the free world. I respect the position.

Well THAT precedent went the way of the dinosaurs 8 years ago when the Republicans lost the Presidency. The conservative disrespect for Obama is just downright embarrassing and shameful for them, but they and their supporters won't let up with it.

We're talking Tax Returns prior to election.

Obama released his. So did Hillary.

Don't change the subject.

Look. I don't care about your silly semantics right here. The point is that you were wrong. This is a 40 year uninterrupted precedent that you are allowing Trump to break. Just because, and you are trying to distract from talking about Trump to talk about Democrats.

Yes, the Republican's treatment of Obama is a disgrace.

Absolutely!

Not how you perceive Republicans treating Obama.

What are you looking for in the tax returns? What do you think the bombshell is? Don't give me a link. What is it about not seeing a tax return that is making you so pissed off?

The article added that Obama “is poised to be the most active sitting president on the campaign trail in decades,” which is both true and interesting in ways the political world hasn’t really considered in earnest yet. Obama obviously isn’t the only modern two-term president, but he’s likely to be the only one who’s played a high-profile electoral role during his eighth year.


Out my ass huh?

Pissed off? I'm 100% calm right now. If anyone is emotional, it seems to be you with all the fallacies and (recently) ad hominems. If Trump doesn't release the tax returns, it isn't going to make me angry, angrier, or even upset. It'll just be more confirmation of how much of a conman Trump is. He has to hide and make excuses for something that literally EVERY candidate within the last 40 years has done. Any psychologist worth his salt would quickly tell you he has something to hide there.

As for what I'm looking for from the tax returns? I don't know enough about tax law to break them down thoroughly, but there are plenty of people within the US who do know enough and I eagerly would like them to have a look at those returns to see if Trump's tax history is on the up-and-up. If it is, great. Carry on. He gives us plenty of other ammunition to use against him. I can drop it when it's over, but on the other hand if something IS a miss, then it should be investigated and noted.

How does the saying go, "If he did nothing wrong, then he should have nothing to hide." right?

You're still talking about democrats? Gotta score as many points as possible, no matter how irrelevant to the topic at hand they are huh?

PS: You clearly didn't read your article thoroughly enough, because it isn't even saying what you seem to think it is saying. It is just merely saying that Obama being on the campaign trail is a new sight for modern presidents, then it proceeds to explain why that is by comparing previous Presidencies and why it didn't happen for them. At no point was the word "precedent" used or insinuated one was being violated.

Hey! I didn't make it up.

You don't need to agree.
