President Barack Obama’s campaign offered Mitt Romney a deal, ‘if he releases five years of tax returns, Obama’s team won’t criticize him for not releasing any more’.
Jim Messina, Obama’s campaign manager, made the offer to Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades through a letter this Friday. Romney released his 2010 taxes and plans to release his 2011 returns.
Last Thursday Romney said he has paid at least 13 percent of his income in federal taxes every year in the last decade. Rhoades stated, “It is clear that President Obama wants nothing more than to talk about Gov. Romney’s tax returns instead of the issues that matter to voters.” AV
