Well it's nice for you to admit that Romney has something to hide.
And I love it really...you are encouraging Romney to do what you supposedly hate about Obama. And you are going to vote for this guy...for
acting just like Obama (in your opinion)???
That seems a bit odd...don't ya think???
Indeed. Everyone that complained about Obama not releasing things should also want Romney to release these records.
This isn't going away for Romney...Republicans are calling on him to release his taxes...this will follow him all the way through to November.
And the longer he waits, the worse it looks. If he tries to release only his tax rates from those years and not his entire tax returns...then that
just makes it more suspicious that he is hiding something in those returns.
Going in theme with my comment above, I'm sure you feel the same way about Obama too then. I mean, lets say there were certain Fast and Furious
documents that he wasn't willing to let people see, it looks suspicious, right?
I absolutely love that you guys are comparing Obama's college transcripts to Romney's tax returns.
Perhaps you didn't read the link. In addition to college transcripts, it mentions the following:
1) The fact that the health care negotiatons were being touted as how transparent they would be, and yet were entirely secretive. This is the most
significant piece of legislation to come out of this administration and regardless of rather or not is will be helpful or hurtful everyone admits it
will have enormous implications. Lying about its transparency is arguably more important than Romneys taxes.
2) Hiding documents from FOIA requests. In fact, Obama recieved an award for lipservice he had at how transparent he would be with these requests,
but now the very groups that gave him that award are critcizing him as not fulfilling his promises. He is even being called the worst President in
history for allowing these requests.
It also states in this article,
The administration has embarked on an unprecedented wave of prosecutions of whistleblowers and alleged leakers
— an effort many journalists believe is aimed at blocking national security-related stories.
A man who ran on transparency doing the exact opposite and punishing whistle blowers who try to show corruption, seems more important than Romneys
3) Fast and Furious. As you said above, if someone wont release all of the records on something, its suspicious. A US agent dead, and unknown
number of innocent civilians, and a cover up in place. Definitely more important than Romneys taxes.
See I think Obama and Romney are lying hypocrites. You fairly call out a Romney supporter for hypocrisy, but if you continue to support Obama then
you also are a hypocrite in the very same way.
How can you call for Romney to be transparent when you defend someone with a track record like Obama?
