    I think we should all remember, however, that none of us would even know about his Swiss bank account had he chosen not to reveal it.
    I agree. I think he should release the customary. I don't think that the issue is just going to go away. The longer he holds out, the more negative he'll look.

    The people demanding this aren't going to vote for Romney anyway--its a ploy to get the weak-minded upset
    Has Romney released his college transcripts or birth certificate yet????

    Funny how you keep claiming no one really cares about anything Romney, and yet the Romney campaign cares enough to not release them immediately when asked to. You should follow the campaign of your candidate more closely unless you are just writing this post to distract from Romney, in which case, it seems you do care.

    Yes, anything and everything is fair game if it gets the public interested. If he can get away from releasing them without seeming like he's hiding something, good for him. If he can't, then his loss. The press should get on the scent of anything that could shed light on the character of the candidates, unfortunately, they leave the really ugly political dealings under rap, and go for soft balls like tax filings.

    And yes turddy, that includes Obama's college records if enough people care, you should spend your time starting birther internet movements, instead of at the forum, if you want to see those records so badly.

    They are both wanted because those who want it released think they are damaging to the candidates, in that sense they are the same, the difference in substance is that Obama's school record no longer tells us about his "intelligence" as the person he is, Romney financial management in the past few years tells us a lot about his beliefs on taxes and money management - which really most people ought to know already. But really, if the Romney campaign and the Republicans think that they can gain an advantage by forcing the issue on Obama's school and birth records, they would, but they don't. The Democrats obviously believe it is otherwise with Romney's records, and if Romney disagrees, release those records and it if there's nothing, it will go away.

    and what is the customary, if Presidents Clinton, Bush Sr, Reagan, and Carter all released nothing?

    I don't think that the issue is just going to go away. The longer he holds out, the more negative he'll look.
    I think that might be correct, which makes me wonder if they are timing this.

    Lets get this straight ... Romney at Bain make hundreds of millions by bankrupting companies and sending jobs overseas ...

    Romney’s Bain Capital invested in companies that moved jobs overseas - The Washington Post

    Mitt Romney’s financial company, Bain Capital, invested in a series of firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.

    During the nearly 15 years that Romney was actively involved in running Bain, a private equity firm that he founded, it owned companies that were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

    ... then Romney opens some Swiss bank accounts, a few in the Cayman islands to avoid taxes on those millions?

    http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/2...shore-accounts

    Particularly jarring were the Romneys’ many offshore accounts. As Newt Gingrich put it during the primary season, “I don’t know of any American president who has had a Swiss bank account.” But Romney has, as well as other interests in such tax havens as Bermuda and the Cayman Islands
    I wonder what all those undecided voters in Ohio and Florida think of Romneyburton?

    Perhaps Pelosi and Wasserman Shultz will lead the way making their financial details public, and only then "demand" that Romney do so. It is such a hoot that "the press" is not asking those elected officials, crowing the loudest about this "issue", to do as they SAY is proper. Hmm...

    You realize neither one of them is running for president, right? You are doing the classic diversion move, pointing at others instead of addressing the issue.
