One was second in line for the presidency and the other is not only an elected official but the head of the DNC. For them to say that Romney should issue MORE financial data from years ago, he has already released his current return, simply because they "say so", yet at the same time saying that SAME information about them is "not relevant", as you do, is a hoot. Just why is only the executive, and not all lawmakers, subject to this "open and honest" disclosure of their personal finances? The president can not make law or appropriate funds, yet the congress can and does constantly. Ask yourself which DC position is more subject to corruption, those that actually make the law (including earmarks) or those that may only either sign or veto it? Sitting back and demanding others do as they say, yet not as they do, is the ultimate hypocrisy.

    I still comfused about this. Obama's birth certificate is bound in a goverment owned, by the State of Hawaii, book. It's been there for a long time, since a short time (they bind them in a book when they have a bunch) after his birth. How do you release a document that is already a public record?

    And this applies to TheDemSocialist also with your "April 27, 2011 i believe?" answer.

    It seems I have hit a nerve. You should learn the meaning of both words. That knowledge will greatly assist you in discussing these issues where you encounter people pushing both concepts.

    What baloney. Worse - yesterdays baloney. Lots of people are not supporting Romney but have no trouble supporting plenty of people who were rich. I do not support Romney but I supported Kerry and the Kennedy's. I have no trouble at all seeing my money going to the likes of Steven Speilberg or Bruce Springsteen and others who are filthy rich and deserve every penny they make. Nobody is trying to SMEAR THEM because they are rich. You FAIL right out of the gate with that assertion.

    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

    For all Mitt Romney’s touting of his business record, when it comes to his own money the Republican nominee is remarkably shy about disclosing numbers and investments. Nicholas Shaxson delves into the murky world of offshore finance, revealing loopholes that allow the very wealthy to skirt tax laws, and investigating just how much of Romney’s fortune (with $30 million in Bain Capital funds in the Cayman Islands alone?) looks pretty strange for a presidential candidate.



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

    Investigation: Mitt Romney

    Another question ... considering Romney's verbose touting of himself yet vague platform that he knows how to create jobs (no real plan in place). Is his past business and personal finance a fair issue to be made public?

    Has any other POTUS not released records or had offshore Swiss and Cayman Island bank accounts (note in the excess of 30 million) ?

    Romney ... on top of his vast wealth likes the thought of being POTUS with his rich guy haircut ... yet he is a poseur that panders to any base, a career politician who loses and he is challenging an incumbent who took a country going into a nose dive and leveled the plane.

    Growing Republican Chorus Pushes Romney To Release Tax Returns | TPM2012


    [...]On Thursday, Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), who heads all House GOP campaign efforts, told reporters that questions about Romney’s holdings were on target, according to CNN.

    His personal finances, the way he does things, his record, are fair game,” Sessions said. While he declined to name a specific amount of information or number of years’ worth of tax returns Romney should release, he called the issue a “legitimate question.” Romney has only released his 2010 tax return and had said he will release his 2011 return before the election.[...]

    Re: Should Romney Be Expected To Release Tax Records and Financial Holding Records?

    Romney spent months bellowing about China "stealing" jobs yet Romney was acquiring shares and making millions in Global-Tech, the firm publicly acknowledged that its strategy was to profit from prominent US companies outsourcing production abroad.

    He was already uber wealthy in the hundreds of millions ... he could have been a "community activist" aka philanthropic wealthy patriotic American ... at that point to restore an impoverished American city ... yet in our cheap American culture some would view this as not glam or rich or predatory enough.

    He blasted Obama for investing and saving in one of our few manufacturing bases left in our country.

    He was freaking uber wealthy as this point (no I am not jealous I am happy with my 6 figure income providing health care to American citizens) and Romney's income is safely tucked with his other untaxed 30 million plus in off shore accounts. He is the .01 % and does not pay taxes on the same playing field whatsoever as middle class or upper middle class hard working Americans.

    A greater percentage of my income goes for national security, military, medicare, infrastructure, border control etc than Mitt Romney. Of course ... I am sure he needs another 20 million dollar house with a garage elevator. ( Does that take a male closer to heaven in the LDS church?)

    He wants to boasts vague rhetoric that he "knows" how to create jobs because he inherited millions and then made uber millions dismantling companies who made multi millions for a few by outsourcing to India and China.

    Romney is a rich boy poseur who will pander to whatever base is in front of him. he want sto add POTUS to his Morman Curriculum Vitae for status. The GOP messed up ... they had an outstanding conservative candidate.

    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.

    Oh another example.

    There is a Bermuda-based entity called Sankaty High Yield Asset Investors Ltd., which has been described in securities filings as “a Bermuda corporation wholly owned by W. Mitt Romney.” It could be that Sankaty is an old vehicle with little importance, but Romney appears to have treated it rather carefully. He set it up in 1997, then transferred it to his wife’s newly created blind trust on January 1, 2003, the day before he was inaugurated as Massachusetts’s governor. The director and president of this entity is R. Bradford Malt, the trustee of the blind trust and Romney’s personal lawyer. Romney failed to list this entity on several financial disclosures.

    Let me help you with the issue: Should Romney Be Expected To Release Tax Records and Financial Holding Records?

    Whether the people asking are being hypocritical or not doesn't matter(really they are not because different people in different situations are often held to different standards...see standards for factory workers vs executives), whether they have hidden motives, whatever just does not matter. The question is whether the general public should expect it. Should you expect it? Should I? Would I be a hypocrite if I did expect it? It is not about the fact that some one person asked for it, but about what those voting in November should expect.

    Expecting it is one thing.

    Demanding it is another.

    Re: Should Romney Be Expected To Release Tax Records and Financial Holding Records?

    Is there any real reason to offshore a US company to an Island? Are the large corperate office spaces inexpensive? Does the international airport provide excelent services to bisuness people? Is there a large base of trained support staff for large corperate offices?
    Maybe if I go to Offshore Company Formation, Bank Accounts, Asset Protection Trusts and Captive Insurance they'll help me.
