So a story in today’s paper reads,
Newt Gingrich, who has emerged of late as [Mitt] Romney’s top agitator, still wanted to see Romney’s full tax return now.
“Either there’s nothing there, so why isn’t he releasing them, or there’s something there, so why is he hiding them?” Gingrich told reporters.
“What is he saying to the people of South Carolina? You’re not important enough for me to release my taxes? Nor are the people of Florida?”
South Carolina Republicans vote Saturday; Floridians on Jan. 31. Gingrich warned that if Romney’s tax returns contain some problem, President Barack Obama’s campaign would exploit it in the fall.
“You do not want a nominee who blows up in September, because in September you have no choice,” Gingrich said.
Let’s play a game and change some of the words. Let’s imagine a story that says,
Mitt Romney, who has emerged of late as Obama’s top opponent, still wanted to see Obama’s original, certified, three-dimensional birth certificate and his college transcripts.
“Either there’s nothing there, so why isn’t he releasing them, or there’s something there, so why is he hiding them?” Romney told reporters.
“What is he saying to We the People of the United States of America? You’re not important enough for me to release my proof of eligibility for the presidency?
Americans vote soon. Romney warned that if Obama’s birth documents or college transcripts contain some problem, Romney plans to exploit it.
“Those DemocRATS don’t want a nominee who blows up in September, because in September they have no choice,” Romney said.
If only! But We the People can dream, can’t we?
Based upon a question to Obama’s press secretary recently, about why Obama has never released his college transcripts (unlike many Republicans, including Bush and Romney) one blogger speculated,
Kind of awkward to release college records that show aka Obama receiving aid as an Indonesian student!
Of course, it could have been as a Kenyan or British student!
Not surprisingly, Jay Carney dodged the question and referred reporters to “the campaign.” Now, what are the odds that any reporter will ask the Obama campaign for those transcripts? If any reporter has the guts of Woodward or Bernstein and does ask, what are the odds that the Obama campaign will release the transcripts?
They can’t. It would be “embarrassing.”
