On Question of Releasing Taxes, Romney Sidesteps Again
Mitt Romney offered a slightly inaccurate version of his tax return history in an interview today, saying he’s released two years of tax returns and that he has released the “same level of information” as John McCain and John Kerry.
“We’ve of course released all the financial statements that are required by law and then two years of tax returns—the most recent year will be released as soon as that’s prepared,” Romney told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto. ”Other financial disclosure is there, the same information that John McCain, or John Kerry for that matter released when they were running for president.”
The presumptive GOP nominee has released one year of his returns and an estimate of his 2011 returns, which he mentioned. He received an extension and said at the time he would release them in the next six months, which would be October.
John McCain released two years, but John Kerry actually released more than that in his 2004 race, going back to 1999. He released many more returns as a United States senator, as many as twenty. McCain released a total of six documents, two for himself, two for his wife Cindy McCain, and two for the McCain Family Foundation.

5. First Rate, Sir!
When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot.
