By now you have to wonder if Romney and his advisors are singing, Bain Bain go away, come again some other day, as President Obama joined in the chorus of Democrats, some Republicans and Americans in general, all demanding that
Mitt Flip Romney release his tax returns.
The longer Romney holds on to this information, the more suspicious the American people becomes. Think about it… if Romney has nothing to hide, if his hands are clean in all his business dealings, if he had nothing to do with the financial empire he created and all his money came from the investments of “a blind trust,” then he should put a stop to all this inquiry. He should just show his papers and prove them all wrong! Instead, Romney has decided that calling President Obama a liar is his only defense.
“You can never satisfy the opposition research team of the Obama organization,” Romney told CBS on Friday while defending his role at Bain Capital. He also demanded an apology from the president for Stephanie Cutter’s suggestion that he, Romney, may be a criminal for lying to the SEC.
“This is simply beneath the dignity of the presidency of the United States,” Romney said.
“There is no whining in politics,” said John Weaver, a Republican strategist. “Stop demanding an apology, release your tax returns.”
This is a campaign for the President of the United States of America – the most powerful job on earth. Over the last few weeks, President Obama has slowly gained in the polls because Romney won’t come clean on his papers. There would be nothing better for Romney if he can prove to the American people that the President’s campaign is lying. If he could prove that, he would see a substantial jump in the polls and the President would lose ground with independent voters.
But there is no evidence to suggest the President’s campaign is lying because Romney cannot supply any. Romney is hiding something and until he demonstrate otherwise, we will all continue believing that whatever he is hiding is more important keep it a secret than for him winning the presidency in November.
