The Obama campaign has taken off the gloves and hit Mitt Romney square in the jaw with claims of being a “liar” or a “thief” On Monday, Romney fired back, accusing President Barack Obama of running a “campaign based on falsehood and dishonesty,” while brushing aside suggestions from anxious conservatives to release more than two years of tax returns. “The president only has one thing going, and that is constant attacks on me. They’re dishonest. They’re misdirected.” Romney said on “Fox and Friends.

Romney, clearly in a hole with his Bain Capital gaffe, tried to flip the transparency card back at the president. “If we want to talk about transparency, the real issue is, why has this president used his presidential power and executive privilege to keep the information about the Fast and Furious program from being explained to the American people?” the former Massachusetts governor said. Romney obviously knows that the best way to evade a question is to respond with another question.
