    So... its his personal finances......

    Heaven forbid he fails to release his Blockbuster rental log.

    No, he won't have to. Of course the extreme left want's to believe that, but it's just as nutty as the 9-11 was an inside job and we never landed on the moon crap.

    There is a HUGE difference between hiding your money in off-shore cayman island accounts and swiss bank accounts in order to avoid paying taxes in America and your "Blockbuster rental log". I'm kinda surprized that you don't know that Caine.

    And this is exactly the reason why Americans are demanding that Romney release his tax records. Americans have a right to know if the person who is seeking the highest office in the land manipulated the US system and avoided paying taxes for much of the last decade. Romney is obviously hiding something that would tank his campaign. Its time for Romney to come clean to the American public....no Mr. Romney...we won't just take your "word" for it. Your "word" is seriously lacking in integrity.

    I don't think that anyone believes that Romney would have to withdraw....but there is obviously something in his tax returns that he doesn't want the American people to see.....Something that would make it even more difficult to get elected....which begs the question...what is it that Romney doesn't want people to see?

    LOL....the romney supporter would love to play this off as "birther-esque"...but ever wonder why that argument has found little traction? Because releasing tax returns is something that not only is required (at least minimally) but something that has a history dating back decades in this country. How many candidates were ever asked to show a birth certificate? Know the answer to that question? hmmmmm...lets see......oh......ONE...and why was Obama asked to show a birth certificate? Need another clue? Because he didn't look like the typical candidate.

    The reality is....Romney is hiding something from the American people and says "You'll just have to take my word". No, Mr. Romney....Americans DON'T just have to take your word. Come clean with the American people.

    Great job outing yourself there. I am not a supporter of either of the 'big two' candidates, they both suck. Perhaps you should consider your comment about 'traction', and take a look at the reality that nobody but Romney haters seem to give a crap about the tax returns.

    The reality is....Romney is hiding something from the American people and says "You'll just have to take my word". No, Mr. Romney....Americans DON'T just have to take your word. Come clean with the American people.
    I don't consider that 'reality', I consider that full on koolaid drinking fantasy.

    Tax records are a PERSONAL item. The purpose of viewing them needs to be a PERSONAL one. Specific to ROMNEY'S (not anyone else's) ability to lead the country.
    It doesn't say anything about his ability to lead. It says the Bush tax cuts were a bone to the ultra rich like Romney, who ended up paying at a lower overall rate than I pay, and I'm middle class. That's wrong. That's why I'll support Obama.
