    Romney has already released his 2010 tax return and is about to
    release his 2011 return. After all the huffing and puffing by the media
    demanding those returns, the follow-up story vanished remarkably quickly
    when the only thing the return showed was that Romney pays millions of
    dollars in taxes and gives a lot of money to charity.

    And that he only pays 15% and has $250,000,000 in off-shore accounts, some of which is in illegal Swiss banks accounts.

    yes at least two years as stated by law. Do you really think he won't comply? HE is running against the chief of outsourcing remember?

    The job numbers are improving, thanks to Obama and no thanks to Bush. Guess you forgot that Bush crashed the economy and Obama is cleaning up his mess.

    The stock market took off like a rocket the day Obama was in office and it has been going strong for 3 years now. How can that be if the economy is worse?

    It has been up and down as you know. The economy is in the tank and we are the biggest DEBTOR NATION IN THE WORLD!

    LOOK AT WHAT THE HYPOCRITES ARE SAYING:

    Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, also has harangued Romney for refusing to release more tax returns, calling it a "penchant for secrecy."

    All three refused repeated requests from McClatchy Newspapers to release their own returns, requests that started before the flap over Romney's records.

    Pelosi aides refused, saying she's disclosed all that Congress requires.

    "The leader has filed a complete financial disclosure report as required by law that includes financial holdings, transactions and other personal information," Pelosi spokesman Nadeam Elshami said. "There has been no question about where Leader Pelosi and Democrats stand on tax policy: We must extend the middle-class tax cuts and end tax breaks for millionaires and use the revenues to pay down the deficit."

    Challenged at a recent news conference to release hers, Wasserman Schultz said she wouldn't because she wasn't running for president. "I file full financial disclosure required under the law," she said.

    What's required by law is written by Congress itself, a broad financial-disclosure statement that offers no direct information on tax liabilities and no requirement for reporting spousal income other than the source - but not the amount - of any income above $1,000. There's little way of knowing whether that spousal income is $1,001 or $1 million.

    Creating jobs overseas is not outsourcing. Romney FIRED American works and MOVED their jobs overseas. THAT is outsourcing.

    This is standard operating practice for presidential candidates. No exception should be made for Romney though it will probably embarrass him.

    Give us the evidence of him hiding his involvement. Give us also the evidence that Congress is asking of Obama/Holder on Fast and Furious.

    That's what we need his tax forms and that's why he wont release them, ever. Newt Gingrich warned the GOP about this and he is calling for Romney to release them and so are other GOP members.

    Oh......you mean like Pelosi and Wasserman-Schultz and 95% of the Democratic party? What would his fair share be?
    Democratic National Committee Disclosure forms show the Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India.
    Lets all say 'hypocrite' together.

    Oblahblah is the problem....see above.
    These ppl as you call them are slick politicians...not hope and subpar change. I think the failure to properly deduce the situation belongs to you. Over 8% unemployment and you want to reelect the failure. He didn't fullfill one promise.

    Your memory is short....Oblahblah said, while campaigning, that he had the answers. That, under his leadership, we would not see unemployment over 6% because he would use a scalpel, not a sledgehammer. I remember perfectly. He has not fullfilled one single solitary promise and he is in over his pea-sized brain.

    If you believed ANYONE could have kept the unemployment under 6% you are out to lunch.

    Not a single promise held? He said he would increase the war in Afghanistan and he did. He said he would get Bin Laden and he did. There just 2 promises of many he kept.

    You make excuses for this epic fail. Increase the war? Call that a war? Drones killing indescriminately? Really? And then pour money into nation building at the same time? You sound so gullible.
    He didn't get Bin Laden. They had to call him in from the golf course. For pity's sakes. He refused to be a party to pulling the trigger in case it went bad. He wasn't available so they had to ask Jarrett and she said said.....no, she would not make the call....but they did it anyway. That plan was in effect by the CIA before Oblahblah got into office. Do you believe everything you hear on MSNBC? That's just sad.

    Bill Clinton's words could haunt Obama today
    Comments


    In September 2010, Clinton told his Cuyahoga Community College audience in Cleveland that Democrats deserved two more years to fix the nation's economy.

    "The Democrats are saying something like this: 'We found a big hole that we did not dig. We didn't get it filled in 21 months, but at least we quit digging,'" Clinton said at the time. "'Give us two more years. If it doesn't work, vote us out.'"

    Republicans claim two more years didn't help. As evidence, they cite an unemployment rate still hovering above 8%, slow job growth and an exodus of people leaving the workforce.
