Romney required 10 years of tax returns from his VP hopefuls

We already knew Mitt was a liar and a hypocrite, but this information must really grate on his supporters. I know it would me, if I supported him.

The Daily BeastAs part of its vetting, the Romney campaign required at least some of the candidates on the short list—including the eventual winner of the GOP veepstakes, Ryan—to submit fully 10 years of tax returns, according to a knowledgeable source.

The requirement was consistent with the past practices of both Republican and Democratic campaigns.  Indeed, in 2008, Mitt Romney turned over 23 years of taxes to John Mccain’s campaign when he was under consideration to be the Arizona senator’s running mate.

What’s amusing is to see all the Romney supporters make excuse after excuse after excuse for their candidate’s weird refusal to do something that has been an unspoken requirement of presidential candidates for decades — reveal his financial background through his tax returns.

Whatever he’s hiding must be really over the top.
