Will Willard or won't Willard reveal his tax returns? Now there's more speculation on what they contain.

In my last post I speculated on ten reasons why Willard ("Mitt") Romney won't reveal his tax returns to the American public. They ranged from deductions for extra wives and children stashed away somewhere in Utah, to possible investments in a Nevada bordello. Oh, and shorting a key element in the American economy.

Turns out I'm not the only one. My friend Buce at Underbelly calls my attention to a somewhat different round of speculation at the Atlantic Wire.

Meanwhile, twirling the TV dial with my remote last night, I found a small slew of talking heads speculating on whether the increasing drumbeat of outrage will finally force Willard to reveal what he's been up to with his bank accounts in Switzerland, the Grand Caymans, and Bermuda (or wherever) or whether he will stick to his guns, even though he's pointing them at his own head.

Will he or won't he? Beats me, bro. Stay tuned.

he won't & if I were him I wouldn't either. He has a chance to win now but if he releases the returns he looses for sure.

He could release them & we would all see a little old man who has hung in there become the republican nominee
