Eh, maybe yes, maybe no.

I've seen at least one person suggest that the thing that Romney might not want to publish would be charitable donations to the 'wrong' sort of charities, from back in the day.

This is a fishing expedition, at best.

Harry Reid is a douche. And his aide gave details, then retracted. (I know the link is a Fox News link, but if it wasn't true KTLK in Los Angeles would be disputing it) And BTW, Mittens has given the tax returns he needed to. This is an idiotic witch hunt lead by a sorry little man.

re: #2 Cannadian Club Akbar

When you say he's given the returns he needs to, what returns are you speaking of? He hasn't even given a single year's full returns.

Why don't you think, during this time when tax policy is at the national forefront of debate, and Romney is running for an office that sets tax policy, that his own interaction with taxes is relevant? Especially since Romney is also part of the class of high-level financiers that are also currently highly on everyone's mind, after the meltdown of Wall Street.

John McCain has seen Romney's tax returns and knows whether or not he has paid any taxes. So why hasn't he called Reid a liar yet? It's been two weeks and counting. McCain could have ended this on the Senate floor the day Reid first made the allegations if he wanted to, but he hasn't. Gee, I wonder why?

"Jon Huntsman Sr." No relation to the Daily show guy right?

Does anyone still think this issue will change any minds it has not already? At this point it is improving ratings far more than Obamas chances. I suppose that means the "ratings bias" will keep this issue alive well past any real effect on the election. I will be so glad when we move on to the VP pick. Or something, anything else.

The thing is, Romney's returns are a real issue, not some made up one.

Sure, the Reid claim is essentially a fauxtrage, but Romney shouldn't get away with not actually releasing his returns. It's honestly one of the ballsiest moves I've seen in politics in a while. Most politicians have some sense of shame at some point, but not Romney. He just expects it to go away.

And given the short attention span of the media, he might actually get away with it.

I'd bet he has a source. Reid has been in the Senate a long time and Romney is probably alarming plenty of rational Republicans, something not improved by his choice of Paul Ryan.

Something in those tax returns would, at the least, confuse "us people."

I agree. Reid would not set himself up to go down in flames as the liar of the year (hard as that is to do) in the case that his bluff was called.
