    A Real Core Value-Transparency!
    Once again the true political leanings of Mr. Core (Somewhere in the neighborhood of Paul Ryan's mixed with Sean Hannity) comes through in this ridiculous commentary.

    President Obama and Vice President Biden have released 12 years of tax returns..dating back to 2000. Yet Mr. Romney has released one full (minus a key form mind you) and another partial return.

    Presidential candidates have been releasing tax returns all the way back to the 1950's and regularly since then. The issue is how much he paid, in part, but the main point is do we trust Mitt Romney that he did not take amnesty for not filing and declaring his "offshore accounts" in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands etc. with the IRS?

    Smoke and Mirrors
    I have to agree with you. For along time I have suspected Chris agrees with GOP values...(he was on WMAL when it was all right wing) and I think that Mitt's taxes are a logical thing for voters to see. Mitt has paid very low taxes with all his money and lots of it is hidden in a blind trust, and out of the country accounts. I want to know what he paid in taxes for the last 12 years!

    Think before you speak
    Dear Chris, I think you may have confused campaigning with the business of running the country. I'm an independent voter and do my best to be unbiased. This country became divided when Karl Rove began his campaign of divisiveness. This man now has unlimited power. Why? Because the Supreme Court ruling that a corporation is a "person" is the biggest threat ever to beset our country and democracy. It is no coincidence that the corporate pocketbook was unleashed after a grass roots campaign won an election. The "Citizens United" decision, besides being a blatant misnomer, has taken away our power as citizens to have a say. Mitt Romney is surfing that wave of corporate money. I suggest you take a closer look and stop criticizing the Obama campaign for calling him out. Our freedom is at stake and I mean that literally.
