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

    Much is being made right now of Romney having a Swiss bank account, not having released all his tax records, and his offshore holdings. Is it fair and right to expect him to release all that information to the public?

    All politicians should have to reveal their financial holdings so voters can discover sedition.

    I don't think it really matters to be honest with you.

    Whether he does or not makes no difference to me, it's the policies he wants to implement that I have a problem with.

    If he is sticking money in over sears bank accounts to avoid paying taxes then its fair game for other people to expose.But I do find the anti-rich sentiment of the left to be amusing seeing how there is not one middle-class or poor person in the senate or congress.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Yes, because that has become a standard request of all presidential candidates since I can remember... and I can't recall any who refused... and won.

    I think he should release whatever is customary -- whatever the last three presidents have done, as an example...erring on the side of more disclosure is better than less. It's not that hard. Here's my 35-pound 1040 Etc for 2011...here's my 35-pound 1040 Etc for 2010...etc.

    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.

    Well, sorta. He was pushed into releasing some tax information by his oponents during the primaries, which is where the record os the bank account came into the open. He did not do it willingly.

    no one really objectively cares--but the class warfare dems know that running on Obama's pathetic record is a sure fire loser so they divert by demanding this stuff so they can pander to the low wattage minions who are upset that anyone is wealthy

    Absolutely its fair and I feel the same about Obama's finances and I would feel the same about any democat or Gop candidate for President.
    If you want to be President of the United States you can expect to give up alot of your privacy.
    He needs to declare it and truthfully

    lets see obama's college record and whether he was at occidental as a foreign student. and his grades-lots of people wonder how he got into Columbia, how he paid for it and how he got into Harvard Law when he was not listed as an Honors (or higher) graduate of Columbia
