    What kind of Bain activity would you think would be in there?

    Do you think refusing to release something that people want (without any particular reason for wanting them) is an indication that the person refusing to release them is hiding something? Do you have that same opinion on Obama refusing to release his college records?

    For one proof that he didn't quit managing the company like he said he did. But, more likely he didn't release his returns for the same reason most people with clever accountants would prefer not to put their tax info out on the Web--someone with a fine tooth comb will find improprieties.

    yes, however college records are not at issue here.

    BTW, no one releases college records, but they all release tax returns.

    We won't ever know what was in them...that is my point. Romney's Dad did have an opinion on that though. He said that any candidate who wouldn't release several years of returns had something to HIDE. George Romney was a smart man.

    So you think the tax returns would have shown that he was still working at Bain. You know, Bain is a big company. It has to report its payroll information to the government. Information like that would have been easily accessible. And what difference would it make anyway? Would you have voted for him if his tax returns show he wasn't?

    So if releasing of records when someone demands it is acceptable, then what was Obama hiding?

    Ah, so you would have voted for Romney if you saw his tax returns.

    I think Romney thought that no one would vote for him if he released them. What do you think his reason was?

    I would have voted for him. His personal holdings weren't relevant.

    I think he didn't release what wasn't necessary because he feels as I do...his personal holdings weren't relevant to his potential performance as POTUS.

    No. I think he was cheating on his taxes and also paid very little if anything during those years in question.

    If everyone except Obama released grades, then yes he should too. But, you're actually saying "Only Obama should release his grades."

    That's racist.

    Racist? No. I think he should have released his grades when people demanded them, if for no other reason than to shut people up. Same reason he had to release the birth certificate.

    The job of Bain Capital was to turn troubled companies around, largely through reorganization. Sometimes they succeeded and sometimes they failed. But, obviously, they were very successful overall so therefor created, or saved, many thousands of jobs. I doubt that is in dispute by anyone, though the actual numbers might be. We should understand that Staples, Dominoes, etc. employs many many people and are very successful companies.

    Now, in contrast, how many jobs has Barrack Obama ever saved or created before he decided to turn around America? It is very safe to say none.

    If you genuinely want to understand what is really happening in the world you should look for other sources other than nonsense like 'Think Progress' The name alone should make you suspicious.
