Harry Reid said in a recent Huffington Post interview that he knows why Romney want release his taxes. A Bain investor told Reid that Romney didn't pay ANY taxes for 10 years. Of course that would be easy for Romney to refute--just release his tax returns. Romney says he can't recall if there were years when he paid less than 13.9% in taxes but he would "go back and look." His campaign says that he WILL NOT be looking.
Is it possible this has tax return controversy has more to do with a character trait/flaw than the issue of the returns? Is it possible that Romney can't admit that he made a wrong decision--like deciding not to release his returns? That would be a more serious issue than not releasing returns. We can't afford a president who can't admit and learn from a mistake.
