Great article, and solid political reasoning. Not only did Mitt's father release 12 years of his returns, but at this point, so has Obama.

There's been a lot of braying on the Left about Mitt Romney's tax returns lately.  Most of it is transparently political.  Some of it is mystifyingly hypocritical.  But is it necessarily wrong?  Romney has done everything the law requires of him, and then some.  He's made public one full year of returns (2010) and released a comprehensive estimate of another (2011).  As many Democrats would hasten to point out, however, Mitt is disregarding the example set by his father, George Romney, during his truncated 1968 presidential run.  The elder Romney handed over twelve full years...
