Posted by  ▪  January 1, 2012

End of year pondering

Posted by  ▪  December 31, 2011

Posted by  ▪  December 31, 2011
The second Mitt Romney announced he would not release his income tax returns if he becomes nominee I predicted it would not stand because the refusal would, at a minimum, create a major distraction.  It’s part of a larger problem with secrecy which will haunt Romney if he is the nominee.
