It pays to have a good accountant / tax attorney.

If no laws were broken, that is great !!

This shows that Romney KNOWS HOW TO HANDLE HIS FINANCES, and will be a good PLANNER/LEADER that our country DESPERATELY NEEDS.

P.S. He'd be a damn fool if he DID NOT do everything possible to PROTECT the family assets.

I've thought all along that Romney was hiding something.

It has done him more damage to hide these facts than it would to have just been honest about them up front.

The excuse of not wanting to disclose what he had given his church was so thin that no thinking American could buy into that. The Church obviously will be hurt more by his dishonesty than it would be by simple honesty by one of their own who is running for President of this country.

If he's dishonest about this, what else has he been dishonest about or will he be dishonest about?

I don't think Obama is a good solution, but I don't want someone who will lie about things during the campaign, hide things during the campaign, and then worry if he will do the same as President.

The only thing left to do is look at the Independent runner and I don't think he's any better solution than Obama or Romney.

Romney's condemnation of others 'sins' while hiding his own is pretty telling.
