He's not the first wealthy man to run for office; we don't care that he's wealthy, hell, we nominated John Kerry!<quoted text>
I think it's because he feels (knows) the democrats will use his wealth against him, and even if there is no impropriety, they will pretend there is. I think it would be used in the class warfare the president is fostering. "He's got so much more than me...no fair."
I think the opposing party can't find any real dirt on him and want to manufacture a problem. If he has ONE subtraction or addition that is a few cents off, they would scream to the rafters that it was a coverup.
That's why I think he won't release them...he could be squeaky clean but those forms are so complicated, someone could convince a low-info voter there was something nefarious going on with them.
Now, why do you think Obama won't release a non-threatening thing such as his school records and admission forms, especially in the face of so much being offered to the charity of his choice?
Somehow the right has spun that fallacy; that the left are poor and the right are rich, absolutely untrue! We just want everyone to pay his fair share, if he's running for President and evading taxes and having Swiss bank accounts, it kind of smells bad.
John Kerry released 20 years.
