Mitt Romney on Thursday pushed back against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's allegations that the presumptive GOP nominee has not been paying his taxes.That's not called pushing back. That's called dodging the question. Harry Reid's not running for president, Mitt Romney is. And while people close to Reid say his source is credible, that doesn't settle anything.
"It's time for Harry to put up or shut up," Romney said on Sean Hannity's radio show.
The bottom-line is that this isn't about Harry Reid. There's only one person who can stop the speculation and put this issue to rest, and that's Mitt Romney. He could do it in ten seconds. All he needs to do is show the American public the same courtesy that he showed John McCain by following his dad's example and releasing his tax returns to the public. As long as he keeps them secret, the speculation about what he's hiding will never end. If Mitt can't handle that, then he shouldn't have run for president in the first place.
