Mitt Romney sure is making it look like he has something to hide in his tax returns. His father set a standard which Mitt has no intention of keeping: “Releasing a single return wouldn’t prove anything, he told the magazine’s senior editor, T. George Harris. It could be a fluke, or even a cynical manipulation designed to make the candidate look good. What really mattered was how a candidate managed his personal finances over the long haul.” Romney has released one return and an estimate for this year. This provides no information about his tax returns while building his fortune.
Today Romney claimed, “we’ve had people run for president before, and they’ve released two years. John Kerry released two years of taxes.”
Of course we know that Romney was lying because of one easy test–his lips were moving. Actually Kerry released returns for twenty years.
