Things that make me wonder

I don't want to say that Republicans - as individuals - have a double standard, but Republicans - as a party - certainly do.
.
How is it that 1 year of Mitten's tax returns is enough?
.
Oh he says he will give us 2011 returns when he finishes them - because only you little people have to pay by April 15th.  I also liked Mrs. Mitten's response to the extension - "our finances are complicated."
.
I don't care if your finances come to life and sing Putting on the Ritz, Marie AntoiRomeny, April 15th comes on the 15th day of April every year.  Doesn't your staff have to get their W2s by then? - oh that's right, you hire illegal immigrants so you don't have to file W2s.
.
Look, if you can meet the deadline to get your $77,000 tax deduction therapy /show horse to the Olympics, you can remember that April 15th is tax day for the little people.
.
But back to my question.  We spent 5 years and counting on Obama's BIRTH CERTIFICATE, but Mitten's won't release his taxes. Mittens stands right next to people who don't believe the birth certificate (or who don't remember Hawaii is part of the USA) - but says we don't need to know what he does.  
.
And, imagine if you will, the screams from Fox "news" if Obama (or Mrs. Clinton) ever put in an extension for their taxes.
.
If you caught Brian Williams last night (Ed made me watch the Mittens interview) - Mittens said that if 2 years was enough for John McCain to release, it is enough for him.  You know, once he finishes his 2011 taxes (REALLY - he noted that he hadn't finished up yet).  Well, Mittens, we know what John McCain has been doing for the last 20 years in politics.  We know what he makes, we know what's up with his finances.  We have no idea what you were doing the last 20 years - retroactively retried from jobs and maybe or maybe not getting paid and maybe of maybe not making decisions.  That is why.
