Despite pressure – even within his party – to release the tax returns, the Romney campaign is standing pat. Responding to critics, Anne Romney said: 'We've given all you people need to know.'
Why won’t Mitt Romney release his tax returns? He’s getting hammered on this every day. Even some Republicans are predicting that he’ll have to release them eventually. Over at the conservative RedState website, editor Erick Erickson says it’s clear President Obama will try to make Mr. Romney’s tax returns an issue until November.
Mr. Erickson writes today that he just wishes Romney would try to tie release of his returns to release of Mr. Obama’s college transcripts or more documents dealing with the Justice Department’s controversial Fast and Furious gun-walking incident.
“Romney might as well try to score some solid points on this before taking what will be spun, rightly or wrongly, as a hit. But we all know he’s going to cave,” writes Erickson.
