Will the astute MSM media ask this ONE question about Mitt's tax return debacle??
"In going through your VP short list, what type of tax return disclosure did you ask for or receive?"
There. Romney has released 2010, and guesstimated 2011 (but they're "working on it" according to Romny aka amending it as we speak.) He refuses to release any more of them because they will be "twisted" politically and used against him, the same logic he used to excuse the wiped hard drives from his Governorship, and no doubt why the Olympics records are sealed.
So is Romney going to say that he would choose a VP without fulling vetting them?? And what happens when the VP releases THEIR returns, but not the candidate? Inquiring minds want to know.. will the media ask this??

2. I am going to give MSM some time on this. MSM has surprised me this week.
Fox scrolled that Mitt didn't pay taxes for 10 years. I don't know if they have done a story yet or not as I don't monitor them, but some people do and hopefully if FOX goes after Mitt hard on anything they will post. Our usual heroes are doing great take downs. I don't know who Dana Bash is, but apparently she works for CNN and has confirmed Reid's source or that their is good reason to believe there is one or more sources for the 10 years no taxes story. Lots of news sources say that Mitt had a very very bad week. So, much so that conservatives are having a hard time justifying the Mittster and have gone back to asking for Obama's grades and birth certificate, they have forgotten about the economy.

3. Sarah Palin in fact released 2 yrs of tax returns to the public
I had not seen this question addressed in the media, but a quick google found a comprehensive site at http://www.taxhistory.org/www/website.nsf/web/presidentialtaxreturns that has PDFs of many Presidents' and WH/VP candidates' returns back at least to Richard Nixon's, including Palin's 2006 and 2007 returns. The Bidens' returns are online for 2011 back to 1998, two years further than President Obama's,
