Who figures Romney has all his documentation, he's just trying to figure out the best way to spin it or hoping for a major news story to hide the release behind...


Why would he need to spin or hide it? Do you recall the big fuss the media made in 2004 over candidate John Kerry's near-billionaire status? Or the fact that his tax rate was lower than everyone else's because a lot of his wealth is in tax-free munis? Neither do I. And Kerry didn't earn his money -- he married it. And yet the media is sharpening its hatchets to have a go at Romney, who actually earned his loot. It's not exactly something to be ashamed of and I hope he doesn't fall into the trap of trying to justify himself to those who are motivated by envy.
