    Yep, I'm sure the extension has nothing to do with Mitt trying to hide is financials as long as he possibly can. Or maybe his return crashed Turbotax.

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Unless we are talking about your birth certificate.
    He released the birth certificate.

    As I posted later in the thread...3 years. At the time of this quote, it wasn't even April 15th yet. Romney still had time to file them, and he asked for an extension as well as released his 2010 return.

    Re: UPDATE 1-Obama calls on Romney to release tax returns-Univision

    Is there any confusion, what so everm about Romney's personal wealth?



    Is there a single person out there, that WOULD vote, who thinks that Romney is "just another Joe", like the rest of us NOT in the 1%, lol? Total non issue. And since when did liberals start caring about the personal wealth of candidates as a factor? Teddy Roosevelt was, and remains to this day, the single wealthiest candidate ever in office.

    Not sure how an extension helps him though. It just puts the release closer to the election. He might as well get it out there now. Its not like anyone is going to be shocked by the fact that the guy is rich. He should embrace his wealth and his success, not run from it.

    The short form had been available for years. It was proof in a court of law that he is a citizen born in Hawaii. He had long since been proven to be American. The two situations are not comparable.

    This is my thoughts on the matter. Obama shouldn't play the whole gotcha game with Romney's wealth. Everyone knows the guy is loaded to the emph degree.

    Or your college transcripts. How come we don't have Obama's Columbia and Harvard transcripts?

    You'll need to ask Tim Geithner, Tom Daschle and Chuckles Rangel about hiding financials.

    Can you provide a link to Romney's college and law school transcripts?
