    Every person wanting to know about Romney's finances or having issues with his stance on taxes or his actions in business is not trying to do "class warfare". Are some people? Absolutely. But there's legitimate reasons people can be questioning it other than simply attempting to demonize the rich or suggesting that becuase he's a different CLASS he can't possibly understand people/be a good President.

    The immediete jump to "CLASS WARFARE" anytime criticism of Romney that relate to his wealth, financial views, business views, etc is no more useful, accurate, or appropriate than the jump to "racism" with regards to Obama. The need to declare everyone talking about it as engaging in "class warfare" needs to just stop.

    What's Romney got to hide?

    This does not work. He does not necessarily have anything to hide, and there can be reasons to not release the forms that have nothing to do with hiding anything. If there is no legal reason to release the forms, then his reasoning can be as simple as it is no one's business.

    Not really. I think that a candidate for President should disclose his personal assets. If we're hiring him for President, we should know what their investments are, etc, so that his or her actions can be examined to see if they favor their own wealth as President.

    I plan on voting for Romney, but I think it's completely reasonable to ask about his wealth.

    To go a little further...

    I think saying "class warfare" is really meant to scare people from making ANY attack on Romney, much like accusations of "racism" were. There are attacks that are based in in that, just as some attacks on Obama are racist.

    It's starting to get overused. In the same way that the "racism" thing was overused. It is possible to ask for this information without having class warfare as a motive, and it is possible to question Romney for reasons other than "You're just jealous about his wealth."

    I know. I just couldn't resist saying that after all the birther nonsense and the FF document fiasco and not to mention all the "what have you got to hide"'s we got from pro-patriot act crowd when the topic of phone taps came up.

    I try to never miss an oppertunity to recognize hypocracy when the oppertunity presents itself.

    And, I agree with you 100%.

    Really? Cause you're missing it with some in this thread who are using the Birther / School Records / FF document methodology to attack Romney and aren't seemingly doing it in tongue in cheek fashion who rail against those that do it on the right.

    Do you include the ones that are specifically designed to be difficult to discover? Do you intend to set up a contest for the CNN investigators to discover one? His reward is notoriety and increased pay. Or would it be the responsibility of the FBI. Or both? And what is the punishment for not revealing, jail or oh well. Think of it being discovered after an election.

    The people demanding this aren't going to vote for Romney anyway--its a ploy to get the weak-minded upset
    Good luck with getting the lame stream media to insist Obama come clean with full disclosure of pertinent records.
