Romney: What else is he hiding?
I’m too tired to read beyond the Newser summary, and I probably wouldn’t understand the original Vanity Fair article even after two or three readings, but it looks like Mitt Romney has been much less than forthcoming about his finances. Mind you, he might be following the letter of the law, but I expect more than that from a presidential candidate. I expect full disclosure in a timely manner, observing the spirit of the law. No hemming and hawing, foot-dragging, etc. A candidate for president should be candid, fully transparent. Even if he isn’t legally required to be. He should not hide anything or appear to be hiding or withholding anything. Deviousness and “gray areas” may be acceptable in private life; they are not acceptable in a would-be president.
