Just say no, Mittens

Mitt Romney won't be getting my vote this November, but he does have my full support on his decision not to release additional tax returns or provide more financial detail than we already know.  He's rich, he's successful, he made his own money the not-so-old-fashioned way of reshuffling the deck rather than contributing anything truly useful to the economic progress of this nation.  Turns my stomach, but all perfectly legal as far as I know, and, on my bad days, I wish I had done more of what he did when I got out of Harvard Business School.

Get over it, progressives.

And by all means, get over it Obamites, because, in spite of current popular wisdom, this two-week political wonder will be long gone by Labor Day---and certainly by Election Day.  Can any serious political observer imagine a voting booth scenario in which Steven Secretary, Helen Hairdresser, Victoria Veterinarian, or Michael Mechanic pulls the lever for Barack because---nah nah nah nah nah---Mittens didn't tell all when he had a chance.

This week, I wrote a dear friend who is also a very connected political player in Chicago that I was appalled by the 'who gives a s---' campaign tactic driven by very smart people in our hometown.  She had a good chuckle.

Let's get back to the economy, foreign policy, budget, education, and making America competitive again.

It's not the tax returns, stupid.
