Romney should turn the tables on Obama regarding documents
That the democrats and their dutiful servants in the media are clamoring for Romney to release virtually every tax return document he's ever filed, demonstrate the desperation they have to find something, anything substantive with which to attack Romney.
The media are casting Romney's justified reluctance as impermissible secretiveness in a presidential candidate, but what about all of Obama's past? This same awful media refused to even peek into Obama's past. They never showed an interest in his citizenship documents, college transcripts, Fast and Furious, etc.
As John Hawkins suggested over at RightWingNews, Romney should at every media event from now on, where he is asked if he'll release his tax documents, state that he'll release more of his tax returns if Obama will release the Fast and Furious documents with which he's transparently protecting his Presidency. Or Romney could insist that Obama release his college transcripts that nobody's ever seen. Put the ball back in Obama's court. Put him on the defensive about transparency. Inextricably link his tax return release with Obama's F&F/transcript release.
When all is said and done, Fast and Furious will have turned out to be the biggest scandal in US presidential history I predict, and Obama will never release those documents because it'll expose him as the charlatan he really is.
