<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Rachel Maddow took a look into Mitt Romney‘s political past tonight to explain just how Romney has gone back-and-forth on the issue of releasing tax returns, from his failed 1994 bid to unseat Ted Kennedy to his successful run for Massachusetts governor in 2002 to the current presidential race. She highlighted an offer Romney made in 1994 to release his returns after Kennedy did, an offer which an advisor said was still valid eight years later, and wondered if the offer was still on the table </div></div>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>“That was the only condition under which Romney would release his tax returns? His opponent releasing her tax returns wasn’t enough, all his Democratic opponents releasing their tax returns wasn’t enough, getting caught lying about his tax returns in relation to his Massachusetts residency wasn’t enough, but eight years after he ran against Ted Kennedy for Senate, when he was running in a totally different race, to which Ted Kennedy was totally irrelevant, the release of Ted Kennedy’s tax returns would be the trigger for Mitt Romney to release his returns? Why?”</span>

Maddow wondered if the offer was still valid now, saying she has received no on-the-record response from the Romney campaign on that question.


I hope she doesn't hold her breath! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif
