Harry 'Give 'em hell' Reid scores big on Romney's secret tax returns


What is Mitt Romney hiding?  What is he so afraid of?  Why doesn't he release years of his tax returns, as his father, former Michigan Gov. George Romney, a very good man, did?

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) brought this issue back to center stage. I am not going to speculate about how many years, if any, Romney paid no taxes. But Romney's response to Reid is that Reid should "put up or shut up."

Huh? It is Romney who needs to put up, by releasing the returns. I would virtually guarantee that in the hidden tax returns there are some things that most Americans would deeply resent. Why else is Romney hiding them? Many Republicans agree! Many Independents agree!

Give 'Em Hell Harry scored big with this one. Sean Hannity may be upset with Reid, but my question to Sean is: why do you think Romney is hiding the returns? Republicans are running the wrong Romney. Isn't it funny that George Romney's position is much closer to Reid's than Mitt Romney's, on the matter of candidates for president keeping their tax returns secret?
