SEP IRA, so the limits are considerably higher - about $30,000 in the timeframe we're talking about.

This is a fishing expedition by Obama's camp who would then use anything true or false to dirty up Romney.

I would not do it and would suggest instead Obama release his college and birth records for actual inspection.
Obama's own lawyer the other day said the long form birth certificate was not authentic, so there are crazy issues still out there.
But what kind of a message is Romney sending to the average Joe who is on the fence who to vote for? Seems like he's hiding something and he is the master jobs outsourcer. Adds up to one thing--BAD for America.

Politics is cut throat. I'm not sure there are any standards. Obama's birth certificate and college records went nowhere. But this issue is really sticking with Romney and it's hurting him. He's giving dems the ammo they need and I'm not sure why he's doing that. Do you? He really could stop all this and move on.

Where can we buy your debunct talking point dictionary? I'm an average Joe small business owner and after that diatribe of Obama's, I'd vote for Bozo over him.

Good luck with that Plan .

Before starting his presidential campaign in 1967, George Romney voluntarily released his tax returns for the previous 12 years. Asked why, Mitt's father responded, "One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show."

Surely Mitt would want to follow in his father's footsteps by doing the same.

3) Obama’s baptism records — sealed
4) Obama’s adoption records — sealed
5) Records of Obama’s and his mother’s reptriation as US citizens on return from Indonesia — not found, not released
6) Name change (Barry Sotero to Barack Hussein Obama) records — not found, not released
7) Noelani Elementary School (Hawaii)— not released
8) Punahou School financial aid or school records — not released
9) Occidental College financial aid records — not released.(These records were, however, subpoenaed but Obama lawyers succeeded in quashing the subpoena in court. No other Occi records have been released.)
10) Columbia College records — not released
11) Columbia senior thesis — not released
12) Harvard Law School records (not released)
13) Obama’s law client list — sealed
14) Obama’s files from career as an Illinois State Senator — sealed
15) Obama’s record with Illinois State Bar Association — sealed
16) Obama’s medical records — not released
17) Obama’s passport records — not released

However he does acknowledge that he is indeed 1/2 black, and can dance.

But, let's focus on Romney's tax returns by all means.

This is so funny! Romney is DANGEROUS because of something in his tax returns yet Obama went to such great lengths to seal any part of his past he could. Considering Romney has been the front runner for a while now, I have no doubt anything in any of Romney's returns has been gone over with a fine tooth comb. It didn't take long for leaks to come out about Joe the plumbers tax returns. I guess private citizens not running for office are fair game too.

In fact, it seems that anyone that comes up against Obama is expected to be upfront and forthright. Yet he has everything sealed. I wonder what HE has to hide. Inquisitive liberal minds really should wonder why.

Sure, as soon as you show me where I can find a fuzzy math calculator like the one GW Bush used in those 8 years.

The one that told him it would be a good idea to cut taxes on the wealthy and start 3 expensive wars.

I mean, I can see the results when I look at my 401K and the foreclosed houses in the city and the high unemploymen, I would just like to know how he came up with HIS math for this disaster.

You think it would stop with him releasing the records?

If Romney has completed his taxes for the years they want released, I wouldn't doubt that Obama has already seen them and has something specific in mind, but can't mention it since they are supposed to be between the IRS and the tax filer.

I'm not sure what the privacy policy of the IRS is.

And the reason the questions of Obama's records went nowhere has something to do with a media that will insinuate repeatedly that you are a racist for questioning Obama, and most people in politics fear that.

The National Review is not "Obama's Camp".
