    He released nothing prior to 2010, which is what the controversy was about. Sheesh.

    What controversy? He released 2010 and 2011. What more did anyone need? None.

    There is only one successful candidate for POTUS that I remember overcoming the memes attached to him by the opposition in his previous run for the office - Nixon.

    No. History shows that it'd be unwise.

    He lost to the guy who lost in '08.
    He lost in '12.

    7 years; 5 minimum. Many P candidates release up to 12 years.

    It's typical for presidential candidates to release 10 or 11 years of returns, Clinton says | PolitiFact

    ...our fact-check here is intended to gauge what’s "typical" for presidential candidates. As our tally above indicates, though, there's a lot of variation in how many tax returns candidates released. Mathematically speaking, our tally shows the median number of tax returns released to be seven and a half. But individual candidates released anywhere from 30 to one.

The supposed prophecy is that the constitution would be hanging by the thread and the LDS people will save it. Maybe in Utah some people may think that means Romney, who knows.
    I heard this at several "fireside" talks and youth conference "signs of the times" talks. Nobody every specifically mentioned Romney by name...(this was back in the early 1980's). However, every speaker was very clear that in the final days a Mormon would be President and would lead the country through the "apocalypse". Maybe it got toned down in later years....but it definitely was taught.

    I think it's a terrible idea. Again, I have to say, is that the BEST candidate they can come up with? He just seems so "polished" and so "politician like." I can't trust him. I feel the same way about Obama. I swear these people are birthed and bred to become politicians.

    Because he would have exposed the financial circumstances of dozens of others who didn't deserve to have that information made public just because he was running for President.

    Do you think I am stupid?

    In an interview set to air on NBC's "Rock Center" tonight, Ann Romney reiterated the now-familar position of she and her husband when it comes to putting any more than their 2010 and 2011 returns out: No way, no how.

    “We have been very transparent to what’s legally required of us,” Ann Romney told NBC's Natalie Morales. “There’s going to be no more tax releases given.”

    Ann Romney's insistence that she and her husband have done everything "legally" required of them in regards paying their taxes has been a regular refrain from the Romney family, -- a refrain that seems to miss the point that the debate over their tax returns isn't playing out in a court of law, it's playing out in a political campaign. And the rules of engagement and the burden of proof in political fights are far different than in legal brouhahas

    And Romney was "special" because? All the other candidates released them and have since Romney's father started it many years ago. His father also stated that any candidate that wouldn't release several years of back tax returns was "hiding something".
