What is Mitt Romney hiding?

Today is tax day, when everyone’s taxes are due. But Mitt Romney has filed for an extension and is hiding his returns from the voters.

Ever since his Republican rivals were not able to get Romney to release more than 1 actual year of tax returns, I’ve wonder what he is hiding. And even that year does not include everything. For example, he omitted 26 accounts he listed on his Federal disclosures form  and his ethics forms.

Romney did release 23 years of returns to John McCain who then dumped him as a possible running mate. And none of those 23 years include the year he released in the GOP primaries.

The Obama campaign is asking Romney to follow his father’s example and release more tax returns. But Mitt is not his father. He is digging in his heals and not release such information.

We know Romney is rich. So, the question is “What is Mitt hiding?” And keep in mind that what he is hiding might not be limited to what Democrats could use against him in the general election. While the consensus is that Romney is the surefire nominee, it ain’t over until the delegates sing and many who are committed are not bound by law to vote for Romney. So, maybe he is hiding as much damaging stuff from Republicans as Democrats.

Below are items that Romney might be hiding. Please add your suggestions in comments.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
