#MittsMissingReturns (Part Seven) -- Romney finds one issue on which he's 100% consistent

He may flip flop on gun control and a woman's right to choose and support for Saint Ronald Reagan and global warming and his support for the US auto industry and ... and ... but there is one area where Mitt Romney is as solid as Gibraltar, his refusal to release his tax returns for any years before 2010.

Here he is being asked about them once more by Brian Williams on NBC Nightly News last night. Note especially the little facial contortion and chortle that I like to refer to as "Mitt's Lying Smile" at the 25 second mark when he says "hundreds of pages of returns". Look for it every time he is pressed on his tax and business secrecy.

I'm following the same precedent that was put in place by John McCain. Two years, and by the way, hundreds [smile] of pages [chortle] of returns for the Democrat [sic] operatives to go through and twist and distort and to turn in different directions and try and make a big deal out of. But, you know, the American people are not real concerned about tax returns. --Mitt Romney
It's not your job to tell us what we, the American people, may or may not be "real concerned about".  That may work in the CEO world where you can tell your employees what to think, but not in the political world where mere plebeians are allowed to question you.
