What is the difference between Obama and Romney not releasing any documents?

Romney wont release documents from more then 3 years ago, and Obama supporters are up in arms saying he is hiding something.... Romney supporters could care less, and it doesnt matter to them how much money he makes.

Obama wont release his college admission paperwork, thesis's, or transcripts, which might prove he received federal foreign student aid or something, and claims he is hiding something is the reason he wont release them., Romney supporters/Conservatives have been asking this for years.... yet Obama supporters could care less if he lied or cheated while in college.

So why dont BOTH release what they are asking for just to shut everyone up!!??

    Obama has released TWELVE YEARS of tax returns.

    Romney Hood has released LESS THAN ONE YEAR.

    Since the early 1970s, most presidents have chosen to release their returns publicly. In the hope of making this information more widely available, the Tax History Project at Tax Analysts has compiled an archive of presidential tax returns. You can see a list of them here and how many years each released:


    Why do we need to see President Obama's transcripts? Of what possible relevance are the grades that Barack Obama got at Occidental, Columbia, or Harvard Law School to judging his time in office and whether he deserves to be re-elected? What would it reveal about his Presidency that we don’t know?

    To ask the same question about Romney, what possible relevance to evaluating whether he’d be a good President his grades at Brigham Young University and Harvard (where Romney simultaneously obtained a J.D. and an M.B.A.) could possibly be?

    It’s been 37 years since Mitt Romney finished his college education, and 20 years since Obama finished his, as James Joyner asked back in 2008, isn’t there a statute of limitations on the use of college achievements as evidence of achievement? If there’s not, there should be.


    Source(s): . @Justin Thyme - That is incorrect. In the last 30 years all presidents and candidates for president have released more than two years *except John McCain.* See the list here: http://www.taxhistory.org/www/website.nsf/web/pres...

    nicely, how about I clarify both applicants themselves quite? Mitt Romney: execs- a million) no longer as undesirable as Santorum 2) Edward Davies, Mitt Romney's (i sense) better half's father -- turned right into a wise guy, in contrast to his son... 3) it really is it... Cons- a million) Um, nicely, he's ÜBER extremely MEGA wealthy! (AND keeps all of his money for himself, besides as discriminates antagonistic to the undesirable) 2) He liquidates agencies and forces those workers to lost their jobs and document for unemployment. 3) Oh, and in case you probably did not know, Davies (the guy i discussed earlier), become atheist. And wager what Romney did to him after he died? HE switched over HIM! 4) He, and the different republicans, at the instant are not customary - even among Republican electorate/electorate. in certain circumstances, the quantity of persons that confirmed as a lot as vote become below 0.5 what its estimates were to be. 5) He tries to make himself look conservative, he become professional-determination, and antagonistic to the NRA, or perhaps surpassed some thing very on the point of what Obamacare is, now he's antagonistic to all that ****. He turned right into a average Governor, now he's all out conservative. 6) He. purely. needs. capacity. And. money! Obama: execs- a million) He gained't be socialist, he gained't also be very liberal, yet a minimum of he's FARTHER excellent THAN were THIS usa is going! 2) He did get well being Care surpassed, it can truly, truly, suck, in spite of the undeniable fact that it truly is the right theory Cons- a million) he's likely one in all the most polarizing president ever. This really means that Democrats regularly LOVE and ADORE him, and Republicans HATE and DESPISE him. no remember what Obama does, the Republicans will disagree, purely to DISAGREE. in spite of the reality that the Democrats play that similar recreation, refusing some thing the Republicans ought to say. 2) nevertheless wealthy, anybody with capacity are, besides 3) Obama is weak, he purely can't get some thing executed nicely it really is IT persons!

    WHAT a lot of bollocks. When will you Yanks wake up to the fact that Politics is not about the Truth or Facts. Politics is all about 'smoke and mirrors' <obfuscation, denial, deception and deceit>.

    If neither of them are prepared to put up and prove or discredit accusations against their honesty and integrity, then DON'T VOTE FOR EITHER OF THEM. You the people have the real power - so don't moan, get on the Phone. Lobby, petition your local candidates and demand the matter be resolved

    The other way is for neither to release any more information and let the voters decide which is worse. But I have a feeling that a lot of middle class conservatives aren't going to be real excited about a rich capitalist that managed to take advantage of tax laws to pay at a far lower rate than they have---whether or not they'll publicly admit it.

    Obama had to work for everything that he achieved.

    Romney had a life of luxury handed to him on a silver platter.

    Your comparison is ridiculous.

    They're both corrupt puppets of Goldman Sachs with questionable histories. No one should vote for either of them.

    I'd imagine Obama got aid or something, which the Republicans will claim is rampant socialism designed to overthrow the world.

    Romney probably exploited a butt-frack of loopholes to avoid paying as many taxes as possible.

    It's incriminating on both sides. That's why neither will release them and the parties will just pick away in the hopes the opposing side will give in. It's like a really annoying version of chicken you're forced to watch.

    Romney agreed to show 2 years of tax returns, that`s the normal amount most candidates show.
