Obama Camp Says If Mitt Gives Them 5 Years Of Tax Returns, They Won’t Ask For More

Sure, they wouldn’t

(Washington Post) Barack Obama’s re-election campaign kept up pressure against Republican rival Mitt Romney on two fronts Friday, launching a new ad defending the president’s record on Medicare while challenging Romney to release at least five years of tax returns.

Obama campaign manager Jim Messina made the tax-disclosure offer to Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades in a letter Friday morning. Messina said he was taking the step because Romney “apparently fears the more he offers, the more our campaign will demand that he provide.”Romney’s wife, Ann, has repeatedly stated that concern in interviews, arguing that the more the couple releases, the more questions are asked.

Romney released his 2010 taxes and has pledged to release his 2011 returns. Messina said in letter that he wants Romney to provide three more years of returns.

Romney should immediately take Team Obama up on the offer, with the caveat that Obama remove the Executive Privilege from the Fast and Furious documents.

Of course, were Romney to release 3 more years, the Obama campaign would want more. Every Obama promise has an expiration date, and, really, Obama doesn’t want a serious debate on the issues that face this nation, issues that Obama has made worse along with creating more (Obamacare, for one). Obama has no viable answer for the problems. What he and the Democrats tried failed miserably. Hence, the focus on un-serious issues from the campaign itself, like Mitt’s private tax returns and his dog Seamus.

    Team Obama should go DEVO themselves…
    How bad a song is this new one about Romney’s dog?
    I can’t believe all of the weirdos coming out of the woodwork like termites, to support the worst president ever. And digging like warthogs to try to find a speck of dirt about Romney/Ryan.
    It will backfire. Unless we have the stupidest constituency in the whole world.

  2. True. Devo’s time ended sometime around 1987. The song sounded horrible (heard it on Schnitt).

    Counter-offer: only if you show us the birth certificate and college transcripts

    Obviously, Obama can not be trusted to live up to his promise. He only hopes for enough distraction from his record to keep the questions at bay, at least until November.

    How childish can you get? Romney needs to really come out and call it.. “childish”.
