Of Tax Returns, Tax Payments, and Political Campaigns

I wonder if the same people attacking Mitt Romney for his supposed lack of transparency in releasing tax returns from past years will have anything to say about Elizabeth Warren’s decision to be less transparent than Scott Brown.

And I wonder if the same people attacking Mitt Romney for not paying as much as they want him to in taxes–though he has broken no tax laws to speak of–will have anything to say about the fact that Elizabeth Warren passed up a chance to pay higher state taxes in Massachusetts.

Probably not. Intellectual honesty and consistency are not strong points of Romney critics who happen to be Warren fans.
