35. So we get to keep asking, "what's under the rock?"

The crime is always larger than the cover-up. It is both fair and rational to assume that in cases where one is evading the release of documents which would answer a particular question definitively, which is what Romney is doing.

It is also perfectly reasonable to point that out ad nauseum.

It is not a personal attack. It is correctly pointing out evasive behavior which is almost certainly concealing a darker secret, one which the American people require to be answered if they are to make an informed decision.

If this were merely a question of alienating the public by disclosing how wealthy he is, Romney could have easily taken on a Daddy Warbucks persona five years ago, thrown some money around to carefully selected demographics, and turned his wealth into a political asset. He did not, and he did not even try.

So Mitt is definitely hiding something, and it is something big enough that he is willing to take a torpedo in the side to avoid disclosing it.

Naturally, I and several million other Americans like me suddenly want to know what that is. Not good for Mitt.
