Oh wait, did we say Obama would release his college transcripts? Sorry, we’re being silly. He’ll still keep things hidden, but insists they’ll lay off Mitt Romney if he gives up five years worth of tax returns.
Sure, Mitt should fall for that one.
The Obama campaign is calling on Mitt Romney to release five years of his tax returns, and it promises it will end its criticism on the issue if Romney does so.
The latest chapter in the tax battle came in a letter from Obama campaign manger Jim Messina, who made the offer.
“Gov. Romney apparently fears that the more he offers, the more our campaign will demand that he provide,” Messina wrote. “So I am prepared to provide assurances on just that point: if the governor will release five years of returns, I commit in turn that we will not criticize him for not releasing more–neither in ads nor in other public communications or commentary for the rest of the campaign.”
Gee, they sound so sincere. You can almost believe them. They won’t say anything, but instead will let everyone else do the talking for them.
Next thing you know they’ll promise to not accuse Romney of murder.
