Messina's got an offer for the Romney campaign
Full story: CNN

"In a letter to Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades, and distributed to reporters by the Obama campaign, Messina writes that if the former Massachusetts governor releases five years of tax returns the Obama campaign will not ask for any more"
Wasn't that big of Messina to offer Mitt Romney this deal?
I believe that a deal can be worked out that will be satisfactory to both parties.
if the former Massachusetts governor releases five years of tax returns the Obama campaign will not ask for any more."
Mitt Romney should offer "A deal for a deal," If Nancy pelosi and Harry Reid will release their tax returns for five years, if Obama will release his university records/ grades and give a written record of his ties to Acorn, the woods foundation, Bill Ayers, and George soros as a sign of good faith then Mitt Romney would agree to give a synopsis of his tax returns for five years. I believe that Mitt Romney would most likely go along with that kind of a deal.

Gov. Romney says he paid at least 13 percent of his income in taxes. I bet you paid more than that.

Did the Governor break any tax laws?
If not what is the big deal, Iam sure you take advantage of every deduction you can, why should he be expected to do differently?
By the way, I wish I had what his 13% was in yearly income for the rest of my life.

If the tax laws are unfair then have your elected representatives change them, whining about what affluent people pay in taxes seems so petty.

Envy will propel some men to detest those who have worked and succeeded in life, but even envy won't drive these men same men to work to advance themselves, only drive those who won't work to attempt to bring down those they envy.
Abraham Lincoln said this
"Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built."
"Property is the fruit of labor...property is desirable...is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise."
Envy of others or tearing down other people' house won't change the position in life of the envious.

1. We don't know. He hasn't made them public.

2. Further, we don't know where the money came from so we don't know where the possible conflicts are.

3. Since the Gov. is proposing tax legislation that will benefit the wealthy, we want to know whether his proposals will personally benefit his own pocket.

4. My representatives have made such proposals. Your representatives won't allow them to be voted upon.

More whining. When will your president release all his hidden documents?
College records, papers etc.

Romney does not owe his old tax records to anyone by law.

Get a life, elect people you love who would destroy this country and they will demand to put their fingers in everyones private lives.

Oh, wait a minute if that happened we would not have the current mistake as a president because we would have been privy to his top secret crap.

Grow up.

Obama is a mistake, Romney has yet to be a mistake.

If,as you claim Mitt Romney made a mistake with," Romneycare" as you labeled it, Obama like china, took the plan as his own and hung his name on it.Thus Obama has made a mistake too as you claim Romney did.

I am just looking for consistency from you guys. Jimbo says that Gov. Romney has not made a mistake. But, jimbo believes that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is a mistake. If he considers the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to be a mistake, and there is little difference between the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Massachusetts Health Care Insurance Reform Law, how can jimbo say that Gov. Romney has not made a mistake?

Consistency, consistency, consistency.

What the hell does that have to do with Romneys taxes?
Keep grasping though.

You were so concerned about his tax rate, now what?
I realize if real issues are discussed obama is toast, but really stick to your current whining point.

About as much as your statement "Obama is a mistake, Romney has yet to be a mistake."

How about some consistency in your rants?
