Josh Romney on dad's tax returns: 'He's paid his taxes'

(CNN) – Josh Romney, one of Mitt Romney's five sons, defended his father Monday against attacks over the presumptive GOP nominee's tax returns.

"He's paid his taxes," Josh Romney told CNN's Piers Morgan. "This is a gimmick by the Obama campaign to take the message off the economy and on to my dad's personal taxes."

    This is not an Obama campaign gimmick. Why don't they get it. They are asking each American for his/her precious vote and yet Romney will not disclose any tax returns prior to 2010 to the American people. You know, we've all bought used cars before and cannot trust someone just because they say what is under the hood is all good. We may not be super rich, but we are not stupid.

    And Romeny's blind trust invested funds in one of his son's companies. Yeah, blind all right.

    well of course he paid them but how much? What loop holes did he use. ? where is the money from the caymens ? Did he write off anns horse? what we want is a look at how he plans to fix taxes. If the average american has to pay more than him is it fair? He has flip flopped on so many thing we don't know what he stands for. Depends on whaT group he is talking to. Ann romneys medician is very expensive what kind of coverage does she have? Why the big secret? Unless by releasing his returns we see that he is barley paying anything and screwing us. He lied about his taxes when he ran for governor said he paid them in Mass but he didn; and they found out. Little thing but does he always lie???

    And we are suppose to believe Ann and his sons and any other GOP. If he paid his taxes the big question still is... WHERE ARE THEY?

    I would like to ask Mitt Romney if he made more money than he lost from 2009 to present.
