Re "Romney 'never paid less than 13%,'" Aug. 17

Mitt Romney says he checked through his tax returns for the last 10 years, and he confirms that he never paid less than 13% in taxes. He must have 10 years of returns available for examination; he just doesn't want to show them to us.

Romney handed over 23 years of tax returns to John McCain's campaign four years ago when he was vetted as a potential running mate. Romney received several years (not just one or two) of returns from the running mates he considered this year. If it's so important for a vice presidential pick, why is he surprised that voters think it's important information for us to have about a presidential candidate?

Why won't he share the same information with us that he gave to the McCain campaign?

Mitt and Ann Romney say that they don't want to release any more of their tax returns because it would open them up to more attacks. What do they think is happening to them now?
