In response to T. Paine's
Dealing With the Obama Demon - Exorcism by Transcript
...efforts to try and get Mitt to release more of his tax records simply as a means to try and distract from the current issue at hand with the economy.
- T. Paine, August 14, 2012
You don't get to decide what constitutes a "distraction" to other voters. The economy may be an important issue, but it is not the only one. Moreover, if it is just a distraction, then Romney can easily refocus our attention by telling us what we want to know.
"I stated that any grades he got 30 years ago would be irrelevant now that he is president of the free world."
- T. Paine
It is not unreasonable to want to know a candidate's academic record, though that tells us little about his current intelligence. However, since you have now admitted that Obama's grades from long ago are irrelevant, we can both ignore that issue. Unfortunately, since I do not believe that Romney's much more recent tax records are irrelevant, we cannot both ignore that issue.
In fact, if the tables were turned, I suspect that you would be criticizing Obama in the same way that Democrats are criticizing Romney.
But perhaps I am wrong. After all, on your own blog, you present a wonderful argument that has convinced me that "legal" and "moral" are synonymous:
"The left wants to know why Romney won’t release more than two years of his past income taxes if he has nothing to hide; never mind the fact that this is all that is legally required when running for office."
- T. Paine
Ryan is a frequent contributor and constant participant. He also writes for his own site, where "legally moral" and "morally legal" have always meant the same.
