#MittsMissingReturns (Part Five) - In Which Mitt Romney Gives a Typically Squirrelly Response

In the relatively safe space of the GOP Network's "Fox and Friends" this morning, Mitt Romney had this to say about releasing more years of tax returns:

ROMNEY: The Obama people keep on wanting more and more and more. More things to pick through, more things for their opposition research to try make a mountain out of and to distort and to be dishonest about. We’re going to put out two years of tax returns.
If he doesn't release a dozen years of returns, are we then free to assume the worst? Years in which he paid zero taxes? Investments in Iranian nuclear power plants? Writing off Seamus's roof ride as a test of canine aerodynamics for a Chinese aerospace company? Large charitable donations to Planned Parenthood and pro-life groups in alternating years? Six- or seven-figure horse ballet deductions?  More overseas bank accounts in Albania, Kazakhstan, and Syria? I don't know why we should assume anything other than the worst if he continues to stonewall the press and American voters.
