Round 3 is over. Romney has had his 2-day Ryan respite between rounds, but

now the bell is tolling for Round 4:

WHAT IS MITT ROMNEY HIDING??????????

Corollary: if he has nothing to hide, WHY WON'T MITT ROMNEY RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS??????

IMO, These two questions should be at the forefront of every conversation held with Independents and Repigs from now through the Convention. Forget about the Ryan budget (for now), forget about Bain (for now).

Just keep asking those two questions.

Democrats need to be talking about the travesty that is the Ryan Budget because we really need to remind the electorate what his budget would do to them, then we tie that to how that nudget is similar to the Bain model ... the top benefitting at the expense of the middle and bottom, then back to the tax stuff.

plays into Romney's hands. He announced Ryan, b/c he was so desperate to change the subject from his tax returns. Translation: Obama had him on the mat when the bell sounded to end round 3 (Friday's news dump of Ryan). Sure the Ryan budget is dreadful and ugly, but discussing it takes the spotlight off Mitt's evasions and lies.

we've just been given a gift with Paul Aynrand - he's an ethically challenged member of the cult of Ayn Rand with a list of SPECIFIC damages he'd like to inflict on America's seniors and children.

Why ignore that kind of stuff.

But us Democrats are intellectuals ... we can multi-task.

Reid ... continue doing your thing ... everyone else, talk to Ayn, er ... ryan.

The message the public hears depends will depend on what they are listening for ... either works to the Democratic good.

His are probably available ... which means more of his will have been released as he ran for congress.

"His VP has provided more years in taxes than Romney has" comes next.
