Therefore, out of respect for that unwritten rule (even though it's probably pretty dumb), I won't offer my opinion on Ann Romney's argument in defense of keeping Mitt Romney's tax returns secret. Instead, I'll just help her get her message out by posting it right here:
Ann Romney dismissed concerns about her husband’s tax returns Thursday, contending that the two of them have “given all you people need to know.”So there you have it. I just did the Romney campaign a favor by posting her words without comment. You're welcome, guys. The bill is in the mail.
“You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he’s been financially,” the potential first lady said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “He’s a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person who is trying to hide things, or do things? No. He is so good about it. Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn’t take a salary for four years.”
“We’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and how we live our life,” she added later.
