Sarah Palin Calls on Mitt Romney to Release Tax Returns, Show Proof of 100K Jobs Created at Bain Capital (Wikipedia)

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, AKA “Mama Grizzly,” has called for Gov. Mitt Romney to release his tax returns, as well as the data that  could substantiate his claims of having created 100,000 jobs as CEO of Bain Capital. Well, I never thought I would say this, but for once Sarah Palin is right. The only problem is that she’s helping the Democrats and President Obama more than the Republican Party.  It’s no surprise that she is taking this position, since her husband, Todd Palin, endorsed Newt Gingrich earlier this week. In other words, Sarah Palin ain’t backing Mitt Romney one bit and I guess the Tea Party may follow her lead. That’s if they still look up to her. But there’s an even bigger problem with Sarah Palin giving her two cents — she was never transparent herself as a governor or vice presidential candidate. So, it’s a bit disingenuous on her part.

Nobody is attacking the free market system, but if Mitt Romney claims to have created all these jobs, then he should prove it. President Obama had to show his birth certificate, right? Mitt Romney is building all these castles in the air about how he would balance the budget as president and eradicate the “politics of envy” that President Obama is using to divide the haves from the have nots.

Sarah Palin said that Mitt Romney needed to come clean about his record, particularly since the Democrats would probe the tax issue and his tenure at Bain Capital if he were to become the Republican nominee.
