Should Mitt Romney Release His Tax Returns?

Harry Reid, the Democratic Senate Majority Leader, has made it very clear that he has a "reputable source" telling him that Mitt Romney has not paid taxes for a time period of about ten years -- and that he wants the Republican presidential candidate to prove with tax returns that he has. Do you think all this tax-return talk is integral to the election -- or is it just a distraction?

Mitt Romney strongly denied Sen. Harry Reid's repeated, insistent claims that he did not pay taxes for a decade during a press conference in the Senate Majority Leader's home state of Nevada on Friday. "I have paid taxes every year, and a lot of taxes, so Harry is wrong," Romney said.

    Pushed ??

    Please explain.
  • Soundstorm 2012/08/09 03:52:43
    No, it's just a distraction from the election.
    Personal finances are a private matter that is the constitutional right of every American. Somebody remind Harry Reid.
    "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."

    It's the 4th amendment, everybody. Who's got a problem with it?
  • Yo'Adri... Soundstorm 2012/08/09 23:36:31
    You can't talk to Harry Reid anymore than you can talk to these libturds who have shut off their auditory glands, shut they eyes, and refuse to listen to anyone! It's useless.!

    The next time you want to talk about the Presidents birth or his religion remember what you wrote.
  • Soundstorm Muhamma... 2012/08/10 08:15:46
    I remember saying his birth records are questionable and his religion is a racist hate cult masquerading as a church. And don't YOU forget it!
  • Lee Soundstorm 2012/08/10 15:38:29
    You're talking about Romney and the Mormon's . . . right?
  • Soundstorm Lee 2012/08/12 11:04:42
    Scroll up to the person to which I replied to get yourself up to speed.
    And shut up while the grownups are talking.

    If he wants to pass himself of as 'a man of the people' I'll just call him Barry. And you can call me Mister Soundstorm.

    Mr. Soundstorm. Are you a man of the people? Racist church? I was under the impression you believed he is a Muslim. Pres.Hussein is a highly educated individual, and the Commander of the free world. You are not. Mitt Mormon is close but like Pres. McCain he is not the commander-in-chief. Barry is.
  • Soundstorm Muhamma... 2012/08/20 04:32:42
    I'm an American citizen who belongs to no racist church but is appalled at the election of a man who unquestionably belonged to one for 20 years. And he won't be Commander in Chief much longer. Even if he wins re-election a Republican Congress will have a long list of impeachments against him.
  • Lee Soundstorm 2012/08/10 15:32:49
    It's too bad the Republicans couldn't field a candidate with some character and integrity.
  • Soundstorm Lee 2012/08/12 11:05:31
    Meaningless words to someone like you.
  • Lee Soundstorm 2012/08/10 15:36:14 (edited)
    It's a pity the Republicans couldn't find an honorable presidential candidate

    It's a pity this was all you came away with after a decade of education.

  • Soundstorm tammy c... 2012/08/09 03:56:23
    Nobody forced Obama to disclose his tax records. The questions about his birth and college career are another matter.
  • Dave Soundstorm 2012/08/09 22:30:42
    Yeah - a ridiculous matter scammed up by the republicons.
  • Soundstorm Dave 2012/08/10 08:20:10
    What's ridiculous is Obama paying lawyers $4 million to keep it all secret.
  • Lee Soundstorm 2012/08/10 15:36:38

  • Lee WOODMAN34 2012/08/10 16:57:06 (edited)
    None of that is sealed . . . LIAR.

  • Maddog 2012/08/08 19:55:19
    No, it's just a distraction from the election.
    More Chicago gutter politics! Romney had better take off the gloves and stop being "Mr. Nice Guy", if he doesn't want to end up being a footnote in history books! He needs to attack the soft underside of Obama, which is Obama's sealed records and carefully hidden past. You can bet there is a very good reason his past is hidden.
  • John Wa... Maddog 2012/08/08 20:36:59
    John Walker II
    Considering that this is the guy I might, or might not, vote for in the next election, since the question came up and it is reflective of his stance on buisness, I damn well want to know!

    People running for POTUS do not enjoy the same level of privacy the rest of us have.
  • Soundstorm John Wa... 2012/08/09 03:59:56
    Actually they do. We're still a country of equal rights. And Obama is no more legally obligated to disclose his birth records or college transcripts. But his unprecedented secrecy about them is fair game to question.
  • John Wa... Soundstorm 2012/08/09 04:04:04
    John Walker II
    I think on that one I would have to disagree. this is a guy who is representing our nation. That's... not the norm. But I do see your point.
  • Dave Soundstorm 2012/08/09 22:32:31 (edited)
    And --- when would you be satisfied with his actual birth records? And what intrigues you so much about his college years?
  • Soundstorm Dave 2012/08/10 08:24:17
    His college years are a matter of intrigue because Obama's proven to be such a clueless dunce in economics, constitutional law and his role as president. Everybody's wondering how such an idiot was ever considered for the highest office. But so much of his past is blacked out.
  • Dave Soundstorm 2012/08/11 06:10:48
    You are so incredibly clueless. lol Obama is no different than any president since Reagan left the corporatists through the White House doors. FDR warned us about this day in 1937 and it took until 1981 to forget that message.
  • Soundstorm Dave 2012/08/12 11:14:53
    Are you at all clued as to Obama's extraordinary ineptness in wasting $5 trillion in spending only to give us an economy that's deader in the water than what it was when Bush left office?
    Do you even know what a "corporatist" is?
    And have you ever considered what a failure FDR's New Deal was? That prosperity never turned the corner in his entire 14 year presidency.
  • Dave Soundstorm 2012/08/16 06:43:52
    Have you ever questioned that maybe you should get your news and information from some other place other than FOX and Limbaugh?

    Where do you get that I'm some Obama supporter? Obama did what he had to do - and as stated before -- every president since Reagan has let the corporatists into the White House. Yes - I do know what a corporatist is and I was warned against them back in 1937 by FDR. I doubt you can even spell out what FDR's name is. lol

    So you can shut up -- what do you know about anything? Prove something to me. Who put us into the Great Depression and who got us out? And why was the USA the most prosperous country between 1945-1980 - tell me? How can you say FDR had nothing to do with that?
  • Soundstorm Dave 2012/08/20 04:53:05
    Do you have the slightest idea where I get my news from? If you think Fox and talk radio, would you have me believe you've ever spent a minute listening to them?
    If you're not an Obama supporter then you must be one of the ignorant apathetic 'independent' undecideds. lol So what did you do about those wicked 'corporatists' back in 1937 while you were standing on the bread line all the way through to the Second World War?
    The progressive economic policies of the Hoover and Roosevelt administrations put us through the Great Depression and kept our asses in a sling for an entire decade until FDR realized he would have to abolish his New Deal policies and rely on private industry (those evil corporatists?) to prepare America for World War Two. Private industry was also soley responsible for our post war prosperity from 1945 - 1980. And even more so for 25 years after that from the Reagan/Bush years. But everything FDR did in his time kept our nation in poverty back in the 'dirty thirties'.
  • Dave Soundstorm 2012/08/24 05:10:59
    Wow! You really twisted that part of history up. Those evil corporatists were people like W's grandfather who were war profiteers.

    I'm not against capitalism or corporations --- but what happened once Reagan opened the doors to the corporatists is a lot different than what you are talking about during WWII. The Crash of 2008 didn't happened with W nor Obama - you can trace it all back to the Reagan years and you can include every president after him. Clinton included.
  • Soundstorm Dave 2012/08/25 05:24:22
    I'm just unraveling your revisionist version written by the Democrats. A 'corporatist' seems to be some bogeyman they've got you believing in. I can trace the 2008 financial crisis back the Clinton presidency when the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) was invoked by HUD to force lenders to be more proactive in writing subprime mortgages for risky low income borrowers, particularly those in poor minority communities. As well as the government established institutions Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac overseen by Barney Frank receiving bad loans from Countrywide at the behest of their VIP customer Chris Dodd.
    The explosive housing bubble wasn't caused by any imaginary gremlins you call 'corporatists'. It was created and built up for decades beginning with Jimmy Carter to pander votes from poor constituencies by living breathing corrupt people in FDR's party.
  • Dave Soundstorm 2012/08/26 03:56:59
    Look a little farther and you'll see that it all started when Reagan let the "gremlins" into the White House. Clinton was a stepping stone.
  • Soundstorm Dave 2012/09/02 02:56:48
    I've looked far enough to recognize your views as the product of partisan left fantasies.
  • Dave Soundstorm 2012/09/04 05:54:28
    You didn't look far enough. lol
