Mitt got Booed last night…

Romney Inverts His Image

…about releasing his tax returns. He said he would “maybe” when the question came up, as everyone expected it would, about Mitt‘s tax returns and how his father, Michigan governor George Romney, had released 12 years of returns.

That “maybe” got him booed by Republicans who weren’t ready to wait.

As Andrew Sullivan said:

“Romney then completely flounders in response to John King’s brilliant citation of George Romney’s position on the matter. And that word — ‘maybe’ — in answer to a direct and simple question is devastating.It not only makes him look shifty; it makes him look as if he doesn’t respect his own father’s honorable example.”

So what if Newt, despite his open marriage past, gets the South Carolina vote?

The Democrats will be thrilled.
