Romney to release tax return Tuesday

(CNN) - Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said Sunday he will release his 2010 tax return and an estimate of his 2011 tax liability on Tuesday.

The comment, in an interview on "Fox News Sunday," was a big change in Romney's plans for handling an issue that dogged his campaign last week, and followed Saturday's loss to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in the South Carolina primary.

    I pay 27% in Federal taxes on my pay check and 51% in bonus pay! If any nominee or the President doesn't do the same! They don't get my vote! Period! End of story! And yes I created or gave jobs to people just like Rommey!

    Why can't he show back to 2000 like Pres. Obama has? Privileged, greedy, selfish willard is out of touch. For him to imagine that he has worked as hard as the average American is a JOKE. He has never even worried about paying a bill or saving for a rainy day. The sad thing is he is so out of touch, he thinks he has struggled. What a selfish, clueless moron.

    Lol at Mitt "making it on his own" if by that you mean was born into a family with hundreds of millions of dollars and business connections across the globe. He is the definition of privileged. Someone who got everything on a silver platter in life and then tries to preach to us about the American dream. Romney is just another business thug who got everything handed to him but criticizes others for taking any kind of hand out.

    Romeny's return will look better than Newts. In a couple areas, mainly charitable giving. Plus Romney can explain how he was taxed twice on the money he now pays 15% on and truly paid a higher rate. This will backfire on Newt. He was reprimended in congress for tax fraud if we remember. Newt is a progressive with a huge head. Mitt is the real conservative with the experience to turn America around. Go Mitt

    Does it mention Romney's wealthy El Salvadoran backers from his Bain days? The same El Salvadorans who backed the right-wing death squads??

    Ahhh,'ve done it again. The Flip Flopper strikes again. What further adventures of the Flip Flopper is in store for us? What will he flip or flop on next. Stay tuned to the next exciting episode, same Flip time, same Flop channel. Hey Mitt, I hear you like investing in the Cayman Islands...I have a deal for you while supplies last...genuine sandy beach from the Cayman Islands. Yes Mitt, order now and we'll double the offer, two sandy beaches for the price of one. Don't wait, our operators are standing buy. Supplies are limited so act now.

    I'm not voting Republican, but you guys saying "just another change by Mitt" are idiots. Why would he possibly bomb his run for GOP nomination for another 2-3 months when he could possibly save it by releasing it now? It only makes sense to release them since by not doing so resulted in a loss in SC.

    Obama was classified by GOP/Palin crowd as been elite and somehow educated. Now, do you think the same crowd will accept Romney who is very elite and very far up their in solid professional education (unlike someone who get PhD in European History)?

    Apparently Mr. Newt PhD was denied tenure so he HAD to leave the West Georgia college. Like President Obama who was a non-tenured lecturer, Newt was an unsuccessful college professor who got into politics.

    Folks,the rumour circulating here@ Dallas is that Mitt got a second wife living in Mexico with the rest of his family relatives. The writer is quoting various sources and investigative journalist who unearthed the story. That he has been supporting them all through. Folks,is this true or just sexy story?

    Hey Mitt, quickly change your advisers. In this turbulent race, you are going to fell flat in each aspect.

    Hey Mitt, where did you serve in the Military? Oh, you never served and got 3 deferments. How about you 5 boys, how many years did they serve? Not one day? Are you sure? Oh, you said that your 5 kids were serving their country by trying to help you get elected...I see, makes sense to the elite I guess. And this man wants to send other people's kids to wars. Sorry, Mr. Elite, but you can't have your cake and eat it too.

    Here goes the biggest FLIP-FLOPPER of all ages !!!! Mitt Romney will change his thinking and actions at all times to suit the situation. What a JOKER !!!! Releasing his income tax next week is not the end of April which he said he was going to release them. Don't forget what he's got in the Bahamas. Americans need to see everything you TRICKY GUY.

    It will be entertaining to read all the hate-filled blogs from envious simple-minded Liberals when Romney's tax returns are made public next week. Since when is it EVIL to be successful in America? Answer: After our OWS divisive President was elected! Just watch how Obama plays the Class Warfare card again this Tuesday. Liberal politicians playing to their jealous, parasitic base sold on the fact that they "deserve" more wealth and are "entitled" to it on the backs of others! Classic Obama strategy right out of Sol Alinsky's Socialism playbook! It's pitiful that so many Americans honestly believe that BIG GOVERNMENT will solve all their problems in life when the real solution lies WITHIN every one of us!

    I guess Mit is starting to sweat a litle. Imagine losing to a candidate who was disclosed as wanting an open marriage. I gues the GOP will take anybody.
    Remember people; it is still a strong possibility that Newt will pick Palin as his running mate.

    Mitt, Newt and the rest of the boys. Keep flip flopping, keep telling us how you support family values and then get dicorced twice, keep blasting each other. I hope the Obama campaign is taping your debates. Reruns of them is all he needs to win.
