After campaigning on the success of his business record (Bain) and insisting that this country needs transparency, Romney's relentless refusal to show at least 6-8 years of his tax returns not only shows no transparency but has americans republicans, democrats and independents alike wondering what does this man have to hide. He used a very weak excuse by saying "John Kerry's wife never showed her returns." He also said "John McCain only submitted two returns." Romney was reminded how badly McCain lost the election. Refusing to also take responsibility for his own company (Bain) has americans extraordinarily alarmed. Saying that he was retroactively retired from Bain (a term most experts and americans never heard of) while records show he was the head of Bain and receiving a salary from 1999-2002.
President Obama submitted 8 tax returns. George W Bush submitted 10 tax returns. Bill Clinton submitted 14 tax returns. Mitt Romney's own father submitted numerous tax returns. Romney only submitted the last two years of tax returns that were completed while he was running for President. It is now more imperative than ever that americans INSIST that Romney follow the same required guidelines as other Presidential candidate did.
Mitt Romney's outwardly noted inability to tell the truth, refusal to show the amount of tax returns that Presidential candidates have been required to submit for years, his adamant stand to end medicare as we know it, campaigning on being FOR and AGAINST just about every important issues, fighting for tax cuts for the rich while not supporting shared sacrifice are all very concerning. Every american should take a serious look at this man's record and what he really stands for before pulling that ballot in November.
Is Romney trying to hide the fact that only HE and his rich counterparts were successful in his business by closing down companies causing americans to lose their jobs and pensions, outsourcing our jobs, investing his assets in Swiss bank and Cayman Island accounts. His record on the economy and jobs was a failure as governor of Massachusetts. Taxes increased 750 million per year, long term debt increase 2.6 billion and manufacturing jobs declined twice the national rate while Romney was Governor. The one successful thing he did to help the people of Massachusetts was (Obama/Romneycare), which he is now "AGAINST." The false attacks on President Obama is just another tactic to keep the american peoples eye off of the failed Romney record and off of his refusal to show his tax returns.
What else will Romney refuse to show or tell the american people if he becomes President? President Romney - A Calamity for America as Bill Clinton stated. How does ANY american endorse this un-American type of behavior? Think long and hard america. This is serious stuff.
