    Harry hasn't disclosed his tax returns either. What's he hiding?

    Harry is doing all this for one reason and one reason only - distraction. This is all part of team Obama's campaign strategy to distract away from his ugly economic record as the election nears. Holy cow - a guy stands up and says " someone told me a rumor about you - I can't say who the person was and have no idea if the rumor is true but I'm putting it out there anyway for all to see and hear". Is there anyone who wouldn't be mad as you know what at this cheap shot attempt to distract and discredit? Seems like this is all team Obama has - just throw crap against the wall knowing that some people might actually believe it. This is what we want 4 more years of?????

    Of course team Obama would love nothing more than for Mitt to give them his past 10 years of taxes so they could then use their little weasel spin masters to further dig up and mis-represent. How about Barack and Fast and Furious - using "executive privilege" to BLOCK the full documentation of Fast and Furious from getting into the hands of congress.
    Nothing suspicious here.

    Brilliant tactics that appear to be working quite well.
    Don't you agree?
    Mitt's not talking much lately, either.

    Interesting that the Times is now calling out Harry Reid. It's sad to see Reid, who should be playing the role of elder statesman, get in the gutter with political dirty tricks...the oldest of which is to spread a rumor that has little if any basis in fact.

    Romney should probably release his tax returns. Okay. But unless/until he does, and they show he "didn't pay taxes for 10 years" Reid should stick to what he knows...whatever that may be.
