Romney will release tax returns

Romney: A taxing week

Former Massachussets Gov. Mitt Romney, humbled by an unset loss to Newt Gingrich in the South Carolina GOP Presidential primary, said Sunday he will release his tax returns for the last two years.

Romney’s hesitation in releasing the returns led — many believe — to his loss in South Carolina and had become an continuing issue as the candidates head for the next contest in Florida.

“I was planning on releasing them in April — when they have been released by other candidates in the past,” Romney told Fox News Sunday.  “But you know what, given the distraction that I think they became in these last couple of weeks, look, I am going to make it clear to you now: I will release my tax returns for 2010 — which were the last returns that were completed — and do it on Tuesday of this week, and I’ll also release an estimate for 2011 tax returns.

    If the man values his mental health and family life he should chuck his aspirations for the Presidency and public office in general. He should have made his records public from the getgo, but now it’s a process of triage and will only create controversy where there should have been none. It’s going to cause him more grief than it’s worth.

    What’s his angle? The most tragic malady to suffer is being a “applause junkie”; I.E., wanting to be in the limelight regardless of less than positive results. Seemingly he’s degenerated to being a perpetual campaigner.

    Bob Hope was an example of an applause junkie continuing to show up long after his appeal faded. I liked the guys humor in his prime, but in his later years felt sorry for his refusal to simply stay home on his estate and fade with dignity.
