In his ABC World News interview with Diane Sawyer, Mitt took the opportunity to side step her questions about his refusal to release his tax returns and blamed Obama for his decision.Mitt Romney isnt going to turn over more than one year of tax returns (maybe two, but the second wont be unveiled until weeks before the election) because
Obama.Its all Obamas fault. Mitt claims that Obama wants to avoid discussing the Bush economy (that is also Obamas fault, according to Mitt) and so Obama brought up Mitts tax returns for no good reason. Never mind that releasing tax returns is long-standing precedent of transparency; itself a tenet of our system of government. Heck, Mitts own father released 12 years of tax returns when he ran for President, former President Bush released 17 years and Obama has released over a decades worth of returns
Mitt doesnt have to because
Obama!DIANE SAWYER: Moving on. President Obama threw down a kind of gauntlet to you over the weekend. And he said,Release 12 years of your tax returns. Im releasing them. Release 12 years. If you have nothing to hide why not release 12 years as your father did?MITT ROMNEY: Well, the president is going to try and do everything possible to divert from the attention being focused upon his record as president and the failure of his economic policies. So hes going to try and make this campaign about the fact that Ive been successful, that Ive made a lot of money. So he wants to be able to get all the details on each year and how much money I made this year and that year. Im not going to get into that.DIANE SAWYER: And John McCain said they gave him 23 years of tax returns when he was considering you for the vice presidency. If John McCain can get 23 should for transparencys sake the rest of the American public get 23 years?MITT ROMNEY: Well, actually the American public has through legislation determined that we need a extraordinary dis set of disclosure of financial records of people running for president and I have complied with all that and then in addition put out two more years of tax returns.(One year, actually, and the extension filed this week.)
