Romney’s 1040 Form Dilemma

Well, Mitt and Ann have told the little people that the tax returns they’ve committed to are all we’re gonna get.  Of course we haven’t seen all of that yet.  The 2010 returns are incomplete, and the 2011 returns will be released at a date to be named later.  Since the 2011 returns were due to the IRS on April 15th, 2012, it’s curious why their release is being held up.

As Romney hasn’t worked for a living, other than the occasional paid speech, since he “retroactively” resigned before the Salt Lake City Olympics, it seems reasonable that he provide returns dating back to his Bain days.

Given what those returns may expose, this presents a dilemma for the presumptive Republican nominee.

1. If there is something in the returns that would be damaging to Romney, and he chooses not to release them, it inspires speculation as to what’s in those returns that would be damaging.  A serious political negative.

2. If there is something in the returns that would be damaging to Romney, and he chooses to release them, a serious political negative.

3. If there is nothing in the returns that would be damaging to Romney, and he chooses not to release them, it inspires speculation as to what’s in those returns that would be damaging.  A serious political negative.

4. If there is nothing in the returns that would be damaging to Romney and he chooses to finally release them, it makes him look arrogant and elitist,  feeling he is above the masses and they have no business looking into his background.  A serious political negative.

Romney has painted himself into a corner he can’t get out of.

    Here’s hoping for a 4-walled room, no doors or windows, a can of varnish and a paint brush.

  2. What if he $Rmoney has ties to companies (Foreign Entities) that have ties to Hamas, Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood?

    That seems more likely a problem as well if you ask me. That would kill any chance he has of ever becoming President.

    Someone should ask him if any Foreign Entities he has ties with are tied to Terrorist Organization and that’s why he won’t release those returns. And if he still refuses everyone will wonder if he does have those kind of links to Terrorism since he refuses to prove he doesn’t by not releasing them.

    Have a great evening.

    More than likely he’s filed for an extension as many people, including myself routinely do.

  4. Terrible news coming out of Colorado this morning.

    Tragedy in Colorado again. So sad.

    I’m wondering if the newest Batman movie that is reported to be very violent be “blamed” for the shooting incident or do “very deranged” gunmen just flip a coin and shoot whenever/wherever?

      It’s been non-stop coverage of the shooting out here. Very few facts as the investigation goes on. There are still people in critical condition.

      What a horrible tragedy.

  7. Today’s news coverage brought to you by the NRA. When is enough enough?

    Perhaps enough will come when an NRA members loses family members or close friends as victims of an assault rifle with oversized clips. Then it might dawn on them these rifles are unnecessary for public sale.
