Willard Is Still Hiding Something
This makes him look pretty bad when compared to other presidential candidates. President Obama has released 12 years worth of full tax returns (and Willard's own father, George Romney, released 12 years worth of returns when he ran for president).
Harry Reid has charged that Willard won't release his returns because he didn't pay any taxes at all for ten of those years. Mitt claims he did pay taxes in every year, but still won't prove it by releasing more tax returns. And frankly, he has lied so often in this campaign that I don't see how anyone could believe him without proof.
Willard's wife says they have nothing to hide, but won't release more returns because Democrats would use that to launch more attacks against them. Note that she didn't say Democrats would make up anything to attack them with, but that they would use facts in the returns to make attacks. That sounds to me like a confession that those returns contain embarrassing information that Willard and his wife are trying to hide.
We have passed the point now of wondering if Willard is trying to hide something by not releasing his returns. He obviously is. The only question now is "What is he trying to hide"? It must be something pretty bad, since he is taking a lot of heat by trying to hide it.
