  •  Reid's Got the Burden for Media Because He Made (0+ / 0-)

    a claim he's not backing up with evidence.

    Mitt merely has declined to show his tax returns.

    Totally different.

    •  Mitt is the guy on the ballot (0+ / 0-)

      That's what is totally different.  

    •  Um, tax returns are private unless (0+ / 0-)

      released to the public, as all other politicians running for president have done.

      Reid can't prove that Romney didn't pay taxes; only Romney can prove that he did.

      He ought to release the tax returns because he's asking Americans to give him the job of president. That's like showing up for a job interview and only being willing to give partial references for the last two years.

      Oh, yeah, that'd work for any ordinary job, right? How much more significant is a background check for leader of the whole damn country?
