Quote:ROMNEY: I WON’T RELEASE MY TAX RETURNS BECAUSE ‘I DON’T WANT TO GIVE THE DEMOCRATS A NICE LITTLE PRESENT’ | GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney endured a hail of boos during the CNN debate last night when he refused to commit to releasing his 2011 tax returns. This morning on Fox and Friends, host Gretchen Carlson asked Romney whether he’d be willing to “make news” and agree to release his returns before April. An obstinate Romney repeated that he will only release his returns once on April 15. “The reason is very simple,” he said. “I want to beat Barack Obama. I don’t want to give the Democrats a nice little present of having multiple releases.” Watch it:
John King mentioned to Mitt that Mitt's father not only released his current taxes, but when back 12 years saying something like just on year could have been a fluke and that 12 years proved more about where they got their money. He asked Mitt if he would do it, and he said "maybe", but went on to spew his BS about "probably" it would be last years taxes he would release in April.
If you as me Mitt's dad was right, and Mitt has no intention of going back any further because he has had time to "fix" his returns, but if they went back say that 12 years he would have a whole lot of explaining to do, and he doesn't want to have to do that. I think the Obama team knows this, and they will be pushing it, as should all the democrats. Mitt is gaming the system to keep from paying his fair share of taxes, and it needs to come out. This clown is a prime example of how the 1% have been raking in billions, and not paying the taxes they should be because of loop holes, and offshore accounts.
What I hope is that Mitt was one of those who had millions in Swiss bank accounts, and the Obama team has the proof, and will let it out as say an October surprise! That would make my day
