One of Romney’s arguments on releasing his tax returns — if it’s good enough for John Kerry, it’s good enough for me — is so self-defeating that it hardly even matters that he also gets the facts wrong. Hard to see how a John Kerry defense works for anyone, especially a GOP nominee from dreaded Massachusetts.
But now Romney is testing out a new Teresa Heinz Kerry defense, this morning on Fox: “You know, his wife, who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. Somehow, this wasn’t an issue.”
