I'll Buy That for a Dollar
So, the Obama campaign is offering to back off Mitt Romney and his taxes, but only if Romney releases five more years worth of returns. What a deal! Mitt would be crazy not to snap that up! And while he's at it, maybe he can score some big campaign cash by giving that Nigerian general's wife his checking account number so she can move her husband's millions out of the country.
Word of advice to the Obama minions: Leave the con games to Bernie Madoff. You're not very good at them.
First off, the offer is phony on its face. Does anybody honestly think that the Obama campaign, after poring over Romney's returns, will ever say, "Wow, I guess Mitt really did pay his fair share! Oh, well." No, they'll hammer every little item demanding an explanation for this and and explanation for that, because that's the entire point of this exercise: keeping Romney on the defensive so that Obama doesn't have to talk about his failed record.
Secondly, it asks something for nothing. Even if the moon ends up in the second house and Jupiter aligns with Mars and the Obama campaign stops harping on Romney over his tax returns, you can bet your sweet derriere that the super PACs will keep the hits coming. Obama, meanwhile, will just shrug and give another speech about how we've got to get the big money out of politics -- all while his surrogates keep right on doing his dirty work.
Bottom line, there is no upside on this. Romney's a smart enough businessman to know that, which is why he won't take the deal. He can, however, make a counter-proposal: more tax returns in exchange for Obama's academic records during his lost years at Occidental College and Columbia University. If we're talking about transparency, why not go all the way?
Ball's in your court, Barack.

To even request 'release' of the Marxist Jackasses's college transcripts is a mistake. Think about it. Someone who can release, for the American public, a phony 'long form' birth certificate to the world (note: this is a proven fact, the certificate he released was a photo-shopped forgery. Why this isn't an 'issue' to 'anyone' still befuddles me), would and could 'forge' any college records. No doubt about it. We are in grave danger as a Nation. This election (and the next 10!) are critical to the continuance of 'freedom' across the globe.
