He may have a "wealth of secrets" but I still know more about him today than I do about our current POTUS.

I am a Republican and Romney supporter and almost all Republicans are like me in that we could care less about where Obama was born or what happened to his college transcripts. That will all come out with time. What all real Americans care about now is the "economy stupid" but there is not one word about that in this opinion.

From the article, "I know what Romney supporters think is fair: that Obama should make public his college transcripts. The reasons they give are a hodgepodge of creative suspicions..." No, Mr. Henry. I do not care about Obama's college transcripts or his birth certificate. Neither do I care about the President's or Mr. Romney's tax returns. None of these things tell me anything about who these men are or how they will govern this country. I prefer to look at the policies they enacted when they were leaders and the results they achieved. The country has big issues to deal with. Continuing a discussion over tax returns does nothing to deal with these issues.

Fair enough-- and the follow-up "Obama's wealth of secrets" story - which we've been waiting for 4 years from the general media - is coming out tomorrow I presume? Just start with who his mentors were and what organizations he joined - oh say, in the last 15 years. We know you think we're ignorant, but at least fake it like you're playing it straight up.

I think people are coming to see Governor Romney, as a person who has been born into and lived in privilege, has made a lot of money by closing factories, and laying off workers, and taking away pensions and benefits, sending jobs overseas, wanting tax reform that will benefit himself to the detriment of the working middle class in this country.

What a bunch of hogwash! Just because Romney doesn't toot his own horn day in and day out doesn't mean he isn't a caring person. Think it just means he is busy trying to run profitable businesses~~~so he can give $$ to his church, charity and pay taxes so the bottomw 50% don't have to.

Thumper and whyarewehere--huh? No one is asking for EVERYTHING we can possibly know about our candidates for President. All we want to know is what has been established as normal disclosure for at least a couple of decades. George Romney released 12 years of tax returns when he ran for Governor way back when, because already way back then this had been established as normal and desired disclosure to the general public for vetting purposes. And it has been so ever since, until Mitt. The fact that he is deviating from this accepted practice is what makes it suspicious and newsworthy. Can you tell me the last President or Presidential candidate who was asked to produce his birth certificate or college transcripts? Exactly. Surely, this could have been an issue with GW, given the rumors of his less than stellar academic career, but in the end, it never became one because it falls so far outside of generally accepted and demanded disclosure.

I couldn't care less where Obama was born, raised, or went to school. Where he lives NOW is the problem! Romney/Ryan 2012!
