Romney Deflects Tax Questions

Mitt Romney said in Monday night’s debate that his campaign won’t follow the precedent set by his father, George Romney, who released 12 years' worth of tax returns before his own 1968 presidential bid. Instead, Romney will be releasing his 2010 return and an estimate for 2011. When pressed by Newt Gingrich in tonight’s debate, Romney said that he and his father, who was governor of Michigan and died in 1995, agreed on many things—but apparently tax-return etiquette is not one of them.
