Would the references and records contained within Romney’s tax returns destroy his chances of election?

Yes, if Romney releases his tax returns, he’s toast
No, public display Romney’s tax returns would not destroy his chances of election
The references and records contained within Romney’s tax returns is no business of the American Citizens.
Romney’s tax returns would confuse the public and the IRS. It would take teams of tax lawyers to interpret

    Apparently, yes. It's a little late to think ahead, but he should have thought ahead. He had 4 yrs to do so when McCain dropped him.

    Here's an assclown, who upon being asked to show his tax returns, will ask for the returns of the SPOUSE of the person he's running against just to create a diversion. You'd think this fool, with all of his money and his incomparable ability to LIE would've had some fake returns ready. apparently he doesn't possess the brains to do even that. And to think, people want to vote for HIM??? Please!

    It's highly unlikely that there's a serious problem with Romney's tax returns. The IRS pays close attention to high income filers' returns. Individuals who are going to focus on his overall tax rate have already made up their mind not to vote for him. However, Obama needs a serious distraction from the sorry state of the economy to use as a campaign issue because he needs to stay far away from that one so he really wants to see what he can find elsewhere.

    I think as many do, Romney need to come forward and offer his ten year of tax returns for Obama's sealed records and both Pelosi and Reid tax records for the same time period. Oops, I guess the libs forgot that part, neither Pelosi or Reid have documented tax filing for the same time period.

    So what you are saying. Obama's records that have been seal while running in 2008 is none of the US citizen business. Yet per our electoral files, Romney was require to file with his application for presidency to submit 2 years. Now remember, while running in 2008 Romney was required to show also two years with his application.

    That's right, the electoral commission has Romney's 2006 and 2007 tax filing and 2010 and 2011 tax filing. Then you figure he was required while running for Governor which are on file for 2001 and 2002 when he won in 2003. You have 6 of the ten years on file, yet liberals keep asking, show us you 10 years. First he is not required and until Obama un-seals his records why should he present them.

    Now the Obama supports are coming out saying what does Romney have to hide that he will not show his ten years of taxes, but they will not look at what does Obama have to hide by not un-sealing his records.

    As for my statement of Reid and Pelosi. The former Speaker of the House Pelosi will not show a tax filing because it would disclose her husband real-estate holding in California that she as the Speaker secured.

    As for the current House Majority Lead of the Senate, Harry Reid. Remember, he was found to have not filled any taxes. Holder has refused to convict Reid or allow him to go to trial.

    I am sure whatever is on them is legal or he could not be in business. This whole issue is nothing but a distraction from the Obama record and Reid's failure to get a budget passed for the last 3 years.

    The Lamestream Media makes no attempt to explain the whys and hows of such records if it would help anyone on the Right. And the People have been dumbed down by the Federal Edumacation System to the point they wouldn't even know to ask relevant questions about them, let alone understand the answers.

    All releasing those records would do would be to provide ammunition for the Left to use in virulent, baseless attacks on Romney.

    Romney has been filing tax returns for many many years. Now if he was doing something
    illegal, don't you think the IRS would have been on his back along time ago. Onama probably has already had his bud Little Timmy checking Mitt's records. So give it up Obama is the one spending millions hiding his records. Why arn't you complaining to high heaven about that little thing???

    lmao, tell that to the celebrities that have ended up going to jail, to bad they didn't do what you are accusing Romney of doing. Brlirvr me Obama and Timmy wouldn't let him get away with it for any amount of money. Obama wants the second term of presidency to much.

    ■Wesley Snipes: He was incarcerated in December 2010 for not paying his taxes for 1999, 2000, and 2001. The actor pleaded innocent, stating that he was duped by his tax advisers. However, the court denied his appeal, putting him in jail for tax evasion.
    ■Richard Hatch: Richard Hatch, the former winner of the television show, “Survivor,” went to prison for nine months for not paying the taxes on the prize he got. He even made a public plea, hoping that his action could help him to raise money and repay his debt.
    ■Joe Francis: This actor tried to cheat the IRS with $20,000,000. This “strategy” cost him a full year in prison for fraudulent deductions.

    Leona Helmsley was ordered to report to prison on tax day, April 15, 1992,[22] following an appeal that resulted in a reduced sentence.[23] Her Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) Register number was 15113-054, and she was released from BOP custody on January 26, 1994

    Helmsley served 18 months in federal prison. Her later years were apparently spent in isolation, especially after Harry died in 1997, leaving Leona his entire fortune (including the Helmsley hotels, the Helmsley Palace and the Empire State Building), estimated to be
    worth well in excess of $5 billion

    Romney is no billionaire like Leona. Get real you like others are looking for anything to accuse him of these days.
