On Mitt Romney failing to disclose his tax returns:
“There is no whining in politics. Stop demanding an apology, release your tax returns.” – GOP strategist John Weaver
“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.” – Alabama Governor Robert Bentley (R)
Columnist George Will and strategist Matthew Dowd agree that Romney is afraid of a revelation with higher costs than the cost of secrecy.
Speaking of higher costs, is there a higher cost to discussing this? Within a day, Bentley is denying his call for the release of Romney’s tax records. Despite the extensive comments he made on the subject.
