Democracy Now: Obama Defends Call for Romney to Release Tax Returns


Speaking to reporters at the White House, President Obama defended his repeated calls for Mitt Romney to release his tax returns.

President Obama: “The American people have assumed that if you want to be president of the United States, that your life’s an open book when it comes to things like your finances. You know, I’m not asking him to, you know, disclose every detail of, you know, his medical records, although we normally do that, as well. But, you know, I mean, this isn’t sort of overly personal here, guys. This is pretty standard stuff. I don’t think we’re being mean by asking you to do what every other presidential candidate has done, right?”
