It's Macho Mitt versus Honey Badger Harry, round two, coming to you this time from Las Vegas, Nevada:

QUESTION: Harry Reid has said that you didn't pay taxes for ten years according to some sources that he hasn't named. Could you silence these remarks by disclosing more of your tax returns?

ROMNEY: Well, Harry Reid really has to put up or shut up, alright? So, Harry, who are your sources? Let's have Harry explain who that is.

Even by Romney's standards, this is getting really ridiculous. He's the one who needs to put up or shut up, not Harry Reid. I mean, does anybody think Mitt Romney would suddenly change his story if Harry Reid came out with sworn affidavits from his sources? Of course not. It would be the same old story from Romney.

The one thing we know for certain right now is that Mitt Romney is hiding his tax returns. Even he admits the reason he's hiding the returns is because releasing them would be politically damaging. And the only way he can definitely answer the questions about what's in those returns is by making them public, just like President Obama has done and just like his father did. Until he does that, anything he says on this topic is just hot air.

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.
