Romney Hides Tax Returns

Jack Kemp

You Tea Party Nation subscribers may have seen this one already, but just in case you haven't, Judson Phillips asks what is Romney hiding and who among us thinks that Obama wouldn't bring this up from Day One of the Presidential campaign?


What is Romney hiding and why is he hiding it?

Mitt Romney may be the Manchurian candidate 2.0. Barack Obama was famous for not releasing any details about his past life, but now it looks like Mitt Romney is taking it one step further.

What is he doing?

Mitt Romney is refusing to release his income tax returns. Not only is he refusing to release them, he says he will not ever release them. In 1994 he challenged Ted Kennedy, when he was running for Kennedy’s Senate seat, to release his tax returns. Kennedy did but Romney never did.

What is Romney hiding?

We all know Mitt Romney is not the sharpest knife in the drawer but you do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out he is handing team Obama a golden opportunity.

If Romney becomes the nominee, team Obama will wear him out on this, as will the media. Of course, the media will conveniently ignore the large segments of Obama’s life where he has refused to release his records, but they will be all over Romney. They will blast Romney, who is one of the wealthiest men ever to seek the Presidency, for being rich and out of touch with Americans.

The other alternative is that there is something Romney needs to hide in those financial records. But with the Party of Treason in charge of the government, does he really think some how those records won’t be leaked? If there is something Romney really does not want released, does he not think that the Obama IRS has already given copies of his tax returns to the Obama campaign?

As we ask what is Mitt Romney hiding, the obvious question is what did he think was so important to hide that he wiped out all emails from his tenure as Massachusetts governor? If a major tragedy befalls us and Romney does become the nominee, we will hear more about this, but for now the drive by media is mostly silent.

As he was leaving the Governor’s office in 2007, Romney’s aides bought the hard drives on their computers and Romney replaced all of the computers in the governor’s office as well as the servers. In other words, there was no archiving of the emails that were sent by not only Romney but the members of the Governor’s staff.

What was so damaging to Romney that he felt the need to make certain no one found out about it?

That would be a great question for Newt Gingrich to ask in the one on one debate that he has challenged Romney to. Unfortunately, Mitt Romney, the cowardly liberal, will not debate.

The failure to debate is just another sign of Romney’s shortcomings. He cannot debate. All he can do is come up with his memorized talking points and even his really bad memorized jokes.

If Mitt Romney will not man up and debate Gingrich, what is he going to do with Obama? Team Obama will start taunting him to a debate every day, much as Gingrich is doing and he will have the drive by media behind him.

If Romney is the nominee, we can count on four more years of Obama.

Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is a conservative GOP nominee to kick Mitt Romney into retirement and do the same for Obama in November.
