    Perhaps he's hiding felonies, perhaps not. But given his wealth and income had there been indications of tax evasion, wouldn't the IRS have looked into it by now? Could what he's hiding be hugely embarrassing, but still not criminal?

    Also, I think Romney is an idiot for not releasing his returns. If he didn't commit any crimes, even if he paid very low or no taxes, he could defend it, at least to his base and swing voters, as justified, because he "created jobs" and "grew the economy", blah blah blah. I.e. justify it from a RW economic point of view. Why won't he do that? What kind of man doesn't defend what he claims to believe in? Given this, I see his failure to release his returns as being damaging to his base support, the equivalent of Obama's flip-flopping on FISA before the election.
