Mitt Romney’s Tax Returns: Ask John McCain He’s Got ’em

By Jim Donahue

Mitt Romney will only release 1 year of his tax returns, and promises 1 more year will be released soon. Registered voters want to know why he won’t release more of them, and 12 years worth, as his father George W. Romney did in 1968, setting the standard for Presidential candidates.

His tenure at Bain Capital, or more importantly, his date of retirement from Bain Capital is at issue also, and the more anyone asks him about it, the more he seems to duck and deflect.

So let’s jump in with both feet.

Mitt Romney’s failure to release his tax returns tells me two things. He’s lying somewhere or the contents of the tax returns in question point to some type of behavior that might have been ok, had he only wanted to be a rich, private citizen, but are not an attractive feature for a Presidential candidate, the man who would run this great country. They also may hold the key to the Bain Capital retirement issue, reflecting a discrepancy in his announced retirement date.

That being said, inquiring minds want to know.

If you want to see Mitt Romney’s taxes for the last 23 years, just ask John McCain. He has ’em.

When John McCain ran for President in 2008, he vetted Mitt Romney for vice-president. And in the process, asked Mitt Romney for 23 years of his tax returns. And has admitted recently that Mitt Romney had complied with his request, and that he does actually have them. So what’s the problem?

I don’t know for certain, but I will give you my thoughts.

Back in 2008, it was my thinking, along with many other Americans, that Mitt Romney would have made a good choice for VP. A young, handsome, successful man, who after 8 years as our vice-president, would make a good choice for President. But it didn’t happen. John McCain instead chose Sarah Palin, a virtual unknown in the political arena. Not Mitt Romney. Really? Why?

Maybe after looking at those taxes in question, he saw what we are all trying to see today, the reason why Mitt Romney won’t give us his tax returns.

So if you were Mitt Romney, when would you like for this mysterious information to be discovered and made public, and it will, I promise. Before the Republican convention, or after his coronation, I mean his nomination as the Republican candidate for President of the United States of America.

Whew, that last line was a mouthful. And it looks like such an important position when you use all the words and spell it out properly, not paraphrasing it.

Are we sure we want this man to be our next President?

If his secret is discovered before the convention, chances are he won’t get the nod. If he does get the nod, it will probably take 6 or 7 ballots before he gets it, and he will have to make a deal with the devil to get it done.

It won’t happen with Rick Santorum, as he will see his opportunity, and try for the nod himself. That leaves Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich. I see Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum both going after Newt Gingrich, as he presents the least amount of headaches, and Ron Paul is easy to discredit as a wacko. Not my words, just repeating them.

If this secret information comes out after he is chosen as the Republican candidate for President of the United States of America, I don’t think he will be elected.

If I were part of the RNC, I would do anything in my power to keep Mitt Romney from getting the nod.

All he will do is make the Republican party a laughingstock.

Anyone has a better chance of beating President Barack Obama, even Herman Cain.

Nobody likes a liar, and the only thing worse than a liar is a thief.

Both may be proven to be Mitt Romney’s downfall, and we will soon see.

Let me impart some words of wisdom from my grandfather to you, Mr. Romney.

When you make a mistake and tell the truth, nobody ever remembers, and when you make a mistake and you tell a lie, nobody ever forgets. Just ask President Clinton.

Every vote counts, so make sure and register before it’s too late

Registered voters, it’s your choice. You decide.

Let me impart some words of wisdom from my grandfather to you, Mr. Romney.

When you make a mistake and tell the truth, nobody ever remembers, and when you make a mistake and you tell a lie, nobody ever forgets. Just ask President Clinton.

So there you have it in a nutshell. Enjoy!
