Conservative Press Turns on Romney
Oh sure another post it is mean spirited and partisan pay back on my part so I can get that out of the way for you guys.
Now for the legitimate question?
Will conservative reporters George Will & Matthew Dowd's blasting Romney free other reporters to do the same.
"ABC News George Will slammed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for failing to fully release information on his tax returns and offshore accounts, saying Romney "must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them." ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd agreed, saying "there's obviously something there" in Romney's returns that he doesn't want public.
"If something's going to come out, get it out in a hurry," Will said this morning on the "This Week" roundtable. "I do not know why, given that Mitt Romney knew the day that [John] McCain lost in 2008 that he was going to run for president again that he didn't get all of this out and tidy up some of his offshore accounts and all the rest."
"He's done nothing illegal, nothing unseemly, nothing improper, but lots that's impolitic," Will added. "And he's now in the politics business."
Will said Romney is "losing [the argument] at this point in a big way" in the debate over his tax returns, which the Obama campaign has hammered on in the past week.
"The cost of not releasing the returns are clear," Will said. "Therefore, he must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them."
Bill Kristol another conservative (right wing heavyweight) said Romney should take the hit for a day or 2 but release 6 to 10 years worth of taxes.
Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour has also broken ranks and is calling for a Romney revelation!
Even good old Sarah (I don't count for anything anymore) Palin said Romney should release his tax & job records.
OK defenders there you have it!
Does this change any Independents or Republicans opinions on the subject.
I'm sure we will hear about Obama by asking that question but I'm you can blame me for trying?
