Pres. Obama Hits Romney on Taxes, AGAIN!

Pres. Obama Hits Romney on Taxes, AGAIN!
Pres. Obama has been on campaign mode lately, and he's not backing down on his attacks on Mitt Romney about his tax returns. Yesterday at the press conference President Obama again hit hard on Romney's tax issue.

Now, if you look at the overall trajectory of our campaign and the ads that I've approved and are produced by my campaign, you'll see that we point out sharp differences between the candidates, but we don't go out of bounds. And when it comes to releasing taxes, that's a precedent that was set decades ago, including by Governor Romney's father. And for us to say that it makes sense to release your tax returns, as I did, as John McCain did, as Bill Clinton did, as the two President Bushes did, I don't think is in any way out of bounds.

I think that is what the American people would rightly expect -- is a sense that, particularly when we're going to be having a huge debate about how we reform our tax code and how we pay for the government that we need, I think people want to know that everybody has been playing by the same rules, including people who are seeking the highest office in the land. This is not an entitlement, being President of the United States. This is a privilege. And we've got to put ourselves before the American people to make our case.

Maybe Pres. Obama and his team know something that we don't know. So they keep hammering Romney on his tax returns because they know Romney's never going to release them; because if he did, he'd lose almost all the independent voters!

Tell us what you think is in Romney tax returns. Make a comment.
