It’s steadily piling up with big name Republicans slamming Romney these days – behaving just like insubordinate Democrats!
On the tax returns:
George Will: “If something’s going to come out, get it out in a hurry. I do not know why, given that Mitt Romney knew the day that McCain lost in 2008 that he was going to run for president again that he didn’t get all of this out and tidy up some of his offshore accounts and all the rest. The cost of not releasing the returns are clear. Therefore, he must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them.”
GOP strategist Matthew Dowd: “There’s obviously something there, because if there was nothing there, he would say, ‘Have at it.’ So there’s obviously something there that compromises what he said in the past about something.”
William Kristol: “He should release the tax returns tomorrow. It’s crazy. You gotta release six, eight, 10 years of back tax returns. Take the hit for a day or two.”
Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley (R): “If you have things to hide, then maybe you’re doing things wrong. I think you ought to be willing to release everything to the American people.”
GOP strategist John Weaver: “There is no whining in politics. Stop demanding an apology, release your tax returns.”
Meanwhile, the Democrats are disciplined, in line, on message and consistent on the Bain Pain pile-driver. Welcome to Bizarro World.
