Dear Mitt Romney – Release Those Tax Returns!

Dear Mitt, 

Enough is enough. If you really want to be President of the United States, you must be open and honest with the American people. Your reluctance to make public several years of tax returns screams that you have something to hide.

Your wife Ann isn’t helping matters much when, in an interview today on ABC, she told Robin Roberts that “…we've given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life.” (See video below.) First, the American people don’t believe they have enough information to understand your financial situation and secondly, “you people”???   Talk about condescending.

There are many reports that other Republicans and conservative pundits are also perplexed at your reluctance to release this information. And where there is smoke, there is fire. If your own party is starting to smell smoke, your official nomination and campaign may go up in proverbial flames before you know it.

If there is nothing for which to be ashamed, embarrassed, or fearful,  why not release the information, not only to ease the minds of the voters, but of the members of your own party?

By the way, in the spirit of transparency, I thought I should let you know that I'll be voting for Barack Obama this November.
