Ann Romney: We Are Not Hiding Anything, But Don’t Know What’s In Our Finances, Managed by Blind Trust (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I usually steer clear of attacking the spouses of presidential and vice presidential candidates, but Ann Romney is beginning to get on my nerves. Either she’s stupid or she thinks we are stupid. Here’s the latest bullshit from her on her husband’s reluctance to release more than one and one-half years income tax returns:

“We have been very transparent to what’s legally required of us,” she said. “There’s going to be no more tax releases given.” Mrs. Romney said if they release any more information, “it will only give them more ammunition.” In regards to their finances,  she said “there’s nothing we’re hiding.” “It’s been managed by a blind trust since before Mitt was governor, you know, 2002 forward,” she told Morales. “And so, you know, I’ll be curious to see what’s in there too.” Source

In other words, I know we are not hiding anything but I don’t know what’s in our finances. This sounds like some ridiculous Sarah Palin would say. Well, Ann, I am here to tell you that Mitt Romney, your high school sweetheart, knows exactly what’s in your finances, including what’s managed by that blind trust. Um, who signs the tax returns? Imagine if Michelle Obama had offered up that non-explanation?

    Janet I believe that you would have a right to see his tax returns just as soon as you start paying taxes without taking a single deduction on your tax return. All he does is use every loop hole that he can, just like you do to lower your taxes. If the IRS is not investigating him then more power to him.
    I have a problem with people like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid who want to see his tax returns while hiding theirs. Besides they have made millions of dollars because of their elected offices unlike Romney who made it in the private sector. Even Michelle Obama profited handsomely from the time Obama was a Senator, getting paid double of what others in the same position got paid.
    No one seems to question that.
