    They aren't a fair judgement to ones ability to run as president?! Jinkies...

    At first glance, on face value, no they're not. They represent how much money you've made over the years. If you or I ran as a Joe Schmoe, they wouldn't matter. But he's a big wig from a big company that moves BIG money. He says he "retroactively retired" but was still getting paid for at least three years after the fact. He released uncompleted tax returns. His wife addresses the public as "you people". Friends of Romney have said if he knew he would have had to release his tax returns, he would have thought harder about running. He's not trustworthy based on these things many others.

    If people are OK with him only releasing this amount, it's time to think about why previous presidents released 8+ years of tax returns, and why it's such a big deal that he's released two incomplete tax returns.

    What is the only issue for which Mr. Romney has not flip-flopped? He stands firm on not releasing his tax returns. Why so firm on this issue?

    Mr. Romney is running for President of the United States.
    This is a position of Trust.
    Ronald Reagan said, "Trust but Verify."
    Mr. Romney has said, "Trust me," re his tax returns.
    It is not unreasonable for voters to want to "Verify.

    It is not just liberals who want to see Romney's tax returns.
    It is 63% of American voters who do.

    The longer Mr. Romney delays, the more suspicious it appears.

    Obama released 8 years of tax returns
    GW Bush 10 years
    Clinton 12 years
    GHW Bush 14 years
    George Romney 12 years.

    What is the problem, Mr. Romney? Release your tax returns.
