I always thought the fascination with Romneys tax returns was odd but I guess they had a place in the election. Now with the IRS being used as a tool to discredit Obama opponents. One has to wonder if the Obama campaign had access to his returns knew it contained damaging material and was trying to goad Romney to release them since they could not do so openly.

for the same reasons nixon and johnson did, to get more ammunition to use against their opponents. you can never tell the way an election will go, so you need as much as you can get against your opponent.

Math and reading were never Obama's strong suit so he probably wouldn't have been able to make sense of them.
Now his handlers no doubt saw them.

If he did... it would be lame to not go look for 2009 returns.

clips from politifact.com

Reid said "You guys have said his wealth is $250 million. Not a chance in the world. It's a lot more than that. "

Reid also has made no effort to explain why his unnamed source would be credible. So, in the absence of more information, it appears he has no basis to make his incendiary claim.

PolitiFact | Harry Reid says anonymous source told him Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years

So you can still look at how Obama has done nothing in his presidency and continues to do nothing to help this country and still bash past opposition? wow...

More importantly, did Obama see Romney's underwear?
