Who in their right mind would believe Obama and pals?
“Thanks for the note” — but no thanks.
That was the response Friday from the Romney team after Obama’s campaign manager tried once again to wrench more tax documents from the Republican president candidate, this time by offering to refrain from criticizing Mitt Romney’s transparency if he agrees to release five more years of returns.
Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades wrote a brief email to Obama campaign manager Jim Messina dismissing the offer.
“Thanks for the note. It is clear that President Obama wants nothing more than to talk about Governor Romney’s tax returns instead of the issues that matter to voters, like putting Americans back to work, fixing the economy and reining in spending,” he wrote. “If Governor Romney’s tax returns are the core message of your campaign, there will be ample time for President Obama to discuss them over the next 81 days.”
This is one of those head slap moments. Obama wants Romney to release more tax records and they double pinkie promise not to bring up his taxes anymore.
I’m sure after scouring his taxes they will all of sudden say ‘Hey! I guess Romney DID pay his fair share. We’ll actually talk about my failed economy now’
This is just another failed attempt at keeping the narrative away from the real issues.
But I have an idea. How about they offer to release the tax records if Obama releases his college records? Think they would go for it?
