Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Romney should release more Tax records; Romney silent on Obama not releasing Fast and Furious Documents

Earlier this week, David Axelrod compared Mitt Romney to Richard Nixon over Romney's refusal to release his tax returns. DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz today piled on, demanding that Romney release information about his 'secretive investments'.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Sunday demanded that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney release more than one year of tax records, citing “secretive investments” and a “Swiss bank account.”

"I’d really like to see Mitt Romney release more than one year of tax records because there’s been disturbing reports recently that he’s got a ... secretive Bermuda corporation that no one knows anything about, investment in the Caymans ... he’s got a  Swiss bank account,” the Democratic National Committee chairwoman said on “Fox News Sunday.”

“Americans need to ask themselves: why does an American businessman need a Swiss bank account and secretive investments like that?” the Florida congresswoman said.
The logical response from the Romney campaign would be to demand Barack Obama lift Executive Privilege on the Fast and Furious documents that Congress found Eric Holder in contempt over. Then again, Romney is apparently unwilling to fight.

In this movie metaphor, Scut Farkus represents the Obama campaign; Ralphie represents what Mitt Romney should be but, to this point, has proven incapable of being; the happy onlookers represent conservative voters.

Unfortunately, this metaphor being 100% applicable requires Romney to actually fight back, which he seems averse to doing when the mud really starts flying.

Romney is becoming increasingly more difficult to root for because it's become increasingly more difficult to respect him. As things stand now, Romney's behavior is akin to Ralphie running home crying after getting hit with the snowball, instead of whooping Scut Farkus' butt.
