You and so many are trying to defend Romney and change the focus by questioning what Obama is hiding. One has nothing to do with the other. Romney is committing political suicide if he doesn't stop this right now.

Equally funny is that most of their sniveling about Obama's college transcripts is accompanied by shrill cries of hypocrisy... even though they never, ever demand to see Romney's college transcripts.

I suppose the irony is utterly lost on them...

What about Obama.

We do know he was a radical leftist.... as he still is today.

It is called double standard.

Not seeing the connection to Obama's college transcripts (really people?? ).
There's no record of that exact phrasing in the records therefore they don't exist. (snickers)

And how do you have anywhere from $20 million-$101 million in an IRA when you can only legally add $5,000-$6,000 per year??

You can fund an IRA with pretax money and post-tax money...

So you don't know where Obama went to school? Google is your friend.

I agree

Let's see how completely open Obama has been:
1) the original, long-form 1961 Hawaiian birth certificate (possible forgery)
2) Marriage license between Obama’s father (Barak Sr.) and mother (Stanley Ann Dunham)— not found, not released
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.

I just want the same standards applied to all.

For Obama to talk about someone else hiding something is absolutely outrageous.

There's no annual limit to SEP-IRA contributions? Can you provide a citation for that? It completely contradicts my understanding and every cite I've been able to track down so far.
