    Someone speculated that the info may come out of Huntsman, whose family has significant connections to Bain. If that's the case, then it's interesting that this issue involves three cutthroat Mormons: Romney, Reid, and Huntsman! Reid and Romney are obviously cut throat, Reid politically, Romney in business, but Huntsman?

    Harry Reid Aide: Source On Romney's Taxes Is A Republican | TPM Livewire

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is keeping his story about Mitt Romney’s taxes alive another day. On Thursday, an aide teased more details about the Bain Capitol investor Reid says told him Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years. From the Huffington Post:

    “This person is an investor in Bain Capital, a Republican also, and somebody who has been dealing with Romney’s company for a long, long time and he has direct knowledge of this,” said Reid aide Jose Parra, referring to Romney’s tax returns.

    (Parra later retracted what he said, but make no doubt about it, he put it out there for a reason.)

    1. I think that our source is a Mormon....

    ...

    one name comes to my mind:

    Jon Huntsman. A Mormon. He fits all of our criteria. He's more liberal than Romney. He's willing to work with the other side of the aisle. His name is very familiar -- a factor which, arguably, ties in with the Bash report on CNN.

    And one can definitely call him a Bain investor.

    I suspect that this source is from inside the IRS, someone there spilt the beanz just like they did for the Pentagon Papers...

    Someone checked out his returns, and red flags went up... surely the political cost of not releasing them (see today's polls) are better than the hidden content, which may show how shady this dude is.

    I think his source was the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy or big foot.


    BTW, politicians who make unsubstantiated charges like this, should be held accoutable. They should be pushed to support their allegation, or be discredited for it.

    I bet the source speaks before Romney releases the returns.

    every minute that passes, Romney looks worse to voters who are on the fence.

    How did you guys nominate such a flawed candidate?

    Romney sucks, he is world better than Obama, sadly both things are true.

    There is no source to come forward. This is all distraction from Obama's horrible record.

    If he was proud of his record he wouldn't run this sort of campaign.

    Hope and Change is under the Obama bus.

    Can't argue with all those facts. (insert sarcastic internet face - OR maybe the one with the bricks on the face HERE)

    Listen...13 ...we get it, you are voting for Romney. I'm voting for Obama.. 67% of undecided voters want his taxes released. If he doesn't do that, then a majority of the undecided will probably think Mitt is shady, and not vote for him.

    He is losing votes by the minute...

    from my perspective, I hope to heck he keeps up with this stuff, it makes him seem eve shadier than he already seems.

    At any rate, it's striking how cut throat Romney (in business) and Reid (in politics) are. I wonder if it says something about Mormon culture? Brigham Young's great great granddaughter heads an organization of exMormons, and I think her comments are quite salient. (The whole article is very interesting, by the way.)

    Exclusive: Brigham Young

    Emmett has watched Mitt Romney very closely throughout his public life and has strong opinions about what shaped his personality and his character. “Mitt is a product not only of his wealth, but of an organization that gives men power when they are 12 years old,” she says....

    ...

    “Mitt has had people defer to him and not challenge him his entire life,” says Emmett. “In the Mormon church if you challenge your priesthood leaders it’s a very bad thing to do, especially for women. As the world can now see, Mitt has a very hard time with being questioned and criticized; he’s had so little of this in his life."

    ...

    Regarding Romney and the presidency, Emmett cites a bit of Mormon lore called the White Horse Prophecy that has floated around since the time of Mormon founder Joseph Smith.... In a discourse from 1855, Young wrote that "when the Constitution hangs, as it were, upon a single thread, they will have to call for the 'Mormon' Elders to save it from utter destruction; and they will step forth and do it."
