Conservatives Blast Romney on Tax Returns

Conservative columnist George Will slammed Mitt Romney on ABC News for failing to fully release information on his tax returns and offshore accounts, saying Romney "must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them."

Said Will: "If something's going to come out, get it out in a hurry. I do not know why, given that Mitt Romney knew the day that McCain lost in 2008 that he was going to run for president again that he didn't get all of this out and tidy up some of his offshore accounts and all the rest. The cost of not releasing the returns are clear. Therefore, he must have calculated that there are higher costs in releasing them."

GOP strategist Matthew Dowd had a similar view: "There's obviously something there, because if there was nothing there, he would say, 'Have at it.' So there's obviously something there that compromises what he said in the past about something."

Meanwhile, William Kristol told Fox News: "He should release the tax returns tomorrow. It's crazy. You gotta release six, eight, 10 years of back tax returns. Take the hit for a day or two."
