Matthew Romney (the second eldest son of Mitt Romney) had to apologize after telling an audience in Concord, New Hampshire that his father would release his tax returns "as soon as President Obama releases his grades and his birth certificate." So now the Romney campaign now has two issues to address - Romney's tax return and the birther nonsense. Apology or not, you can bet the Obama campaign will use this as a cudgel against Romney from here on out. If Romney does become the nominee I don't see how he can avoid releasing them. If he doesn't, Obama can argue that Romney has something to hide. Now everybody knows that Romney is rich and Obama is going to use that against him no matter what. Romney's campaign filed FEC reports indicating the candidate's personal wealth to be between $190 million and $250 million. The most important sentence is buried in this Los Angeles Times article: "The couple owns between $250,001 and $500,000 in gold." Bought off the backs of just a fraction of the people he laid off so he could reap millions. Romney needs to show his tax returns for the past 10 years.

Santorum attacked Romney tonight saying that a good business executive does not mean that same person would automatically make a good commander-in-chief of our nation's military.

I wish Romney would have said, "You're right, Mr. Santorum, a good business executive does not mean one would automatically make a good military commander-in-chief. But prior experience with being a commander-in-chief would definitely help. You know, experience like I've had being the commander-in-chief of Massachusetts' state military forces when I served as the Massachussets' governor. How many state's military forces have you been commander-in-chief of?"

That would have quieted down Santorum in about 2.7 seconds.

Also, Santorum attacked Romney for using the phrase "middle class"?

Puh-leeeease.

'Middle-class' is a phrase used by virtually everybody to describe many people's economic earning power. Nothing more, nothing less. Even those currently IN a middle-class situation use it. To say this phrase is offensive or smacks of class warfare is beyond PC.

Santorum: decreasing in my book.

You claim to be a "Mormon conservative" and yet you complain that Romney has made money? Should Romney have not made money? Or should he have made it only in the way YOU deem it honorable?

Why is it people like you complain about the people Romney's company (Bain) laid off (or fired) as companies they bought downsized but speak absolutely NOTHING about jobs that were created when those same downsized companies began to grow?

And, please, don't even try to claim that EVERY company Bain purchased or invested in failed....

You claim to be a "Mormon conservative" and yet you complain that Romney has made money? Should Romney have not made money? Or should he have made it only in the way YOU deem it honorable? Is it inherently evil and immoral to make large sums of money? Did the Savior himself not say that it is not money that is evil but "the LOVE of money"?
