WATCH: Bill Clinton ‘Perplexed’ By Romney’s Refusal To Release Tax Returns

July 13, 2012 1:25 pm Category: Memo Pad 99 Comments A+ / A-

Former President Bill Clinton says that Mitt Romney’s business record is fair game for political attacks, and that he finds it “a little odd” that Romney refuses to release more than a single year of his tax returns.

Clinton revealed his position during an interview with NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, which was taped on Thursday and aired on Friday morning. When Guthrie asked Clinton whether he thought that the recent Democratic attacks on Romney’s time at Bain Capital are legitimate, Clinton replied in the affirmative.

“Oh, yes I do,” Clinton answered. “It’s just as relevant as the going over my record as governor got when I ran for president.”

“He’s put it at the forefront” of his campaign, the former president continued. “He’s said basically, ‘I’d be a better president because I know how to create jobs because that’s what I did.’ And he’s going to take credit for running a successful Olympics, for example. So then all your work life before you run for president is relevant, and I think that will be relevant.”

Clinton also noted that he was “perplexed” by Romney’s refusal to release more than a year of his tax returns.

“I am a little surprised that he only released a year’s worth of tax returns,” Clinton told Guthrie. “That’s kind of perplexed me, because this is the first time in, I don’t know, more than 30 years that anybody running for president has only done that.”

In Clinton’s opinion, the public “ought to know” the details of Romney’s finances.

“The voters can make up their own minds about whether they think it’s a good thing for a person who wants to be president to minimize his own tax liability,” Clinton said.

    If Barack Obama’s citizenship can be questioned after he produced a birth certificate that confirms he was born in Hawaii, and even the Republican Governor of that state confirm that all his birth related documents are in order; Romney’s finances are too. Saying that he does not know where his $250M investment is requires a leap of faith bigger than McCain not knowing how many houses he owns. Owning “shell” companies in Bermuda that are often nothing more than a POB, laundering money to the Cayman Islands and Switzerland to avoid paying taxes, submitting documents to the SEC showing he was the CEO and then saying he was not responsible for the outsourcings recommended by Bain Capital are more than disturbing, some of these things border on criminal activities.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/OIWHIIHWEWBKKLVU4FQS3XQQKE Todd

      You are beyond cosmically stupid. Mitt Romney put his finances in a blind trust before he even ran for governor. This means, and I’ll try to use the smallest words I can so that your room temperature IQ can understend, that he has no control over how and where his money is invested. He signed documents for the SEC that he was the CEO of Bain VI, not Bain Capital. It is too bad you can’t stop drinking the Obama Cool-Aid, because on top of killing you, it also makes you stupid

    Not to defend Romney’s reluctance to be readily transparent, but President Obama’s track record on voluntary transarency is not any better. Obama was the first President to seal all of his personal records as soon as he became President. Most of those, such as his school records remain sealed. As far as Obama’s “birth certificate”, anyone commenting should do some research on the document, as well as the history of their usage in Hawaii. At a minimum, ask anybody that knows Photoshop to look at the “birth certificate”. It is clearly is not a scan of a paper document, but a digital composite. To stonewall on producing a birth certificate, then to produce what the White House has posted only invites further questions.

    It amazes me that ordinary citizens must reveal almost everything about themselves to geovernment emloyees, yet those wanting to take on the most important job in the world would show any reluctance whatsoever to offer full disclosures of their lives. Nobody’s perfect, but if you want to be President, Mssrs. Romey and Obama, how about opening to your prospective emploer, i.e. the US citizens? I think we can be pretty reasonable about anyone making mistakes, but it’s hard to trust someone that wants to hide things from you.

    • http://www.facebook.com/dominick.vila.1 Dominick Vila

      Ted, I am probably a lot older than you and I can tell you, categorically, that I don’t remember any former President, or presidential candidate, being asked to produce his birth certificate to prove his citizenship. For that matter, no former President was ever asked to swear under oath about marital infidelities, even though everyone knew about Washington’s, Eisenhower’s, and Kennedy’s dalliances. President Obama’s birth certificate is identical to those issued to every other person born in Hawaii. Bear in mind that even the Governor of that state, a Republican, confirmed that President Obama’s birth records are in order and are legitimate. The fascination of some people with this issue is not based on logic or constitutional concerns, if that was the case Sen. McCain’s birth in Panama would have been debated, and the probability of Gov. Romney being born in a Mormon commune in Mexico would be an issue today. The difference is the intellectual acumen, ethics, and sense of decorum of the opposition.

      Pointing the finger at the President as an excuse for Romney is nonsense. Using the birther issue as an illustration of the Presidents lack of transparency makes you look like a fool. How many time do you people need to be proven wrong before you toss that silly claim into the round file. You are not helping to get any Republican elected with the nonsense.

      There was a recent show on TV that interviewed people who currently work at the Hawaiian board of certificates. They all said that they had seen Obama’s origianal birth certificate and that people who claim that Obama was not born in Hawaii are sadly misinformed. They also thought that the continued clammer about Obama not being born in Hawaii was based on racial hatred.

    What is Romney hiding from? The public needs, and has a right to, information to verify his claim as a job creator; the fairness and lawfullness of his record as a taxpayer; and in fairness, the place and circumstances of his birth. We also have a right to an accounting of his assets in order to make an informed decision in November. His unwillingness to support his campaign statements cause me to doubt the veracity of his claims and his worthiness to hold the most powerful office in the world.

    In my opinion the only reason that Romney hasn’t released his tax papers are because while he was either in office or running for office.Thus not releasing his returns keep him from a conflict issue,which he believes,however there is going to be an investigation on his part only for the fact that he is not releasing them.Romney has done everything the law has asked him to do in releasing his papers.but by not going the extra step people are going to believe there is something going on and that something can only be illegal.

    A man of Romney’s wealth has a lot of his money stashed in off-shore bank accounts earning interest for which he and his accountant don’t report on Romney’s income tax returns which is against the law. Both Romney and his accountants should be investigated by the IRS for it will be found he didn’t report all his income, including that made on many foreign investments because there is no paper trail leading to the U.S. and he and his accountants made sure they could circumvent the money laundering laws. This was easy for Romney to do as he has private jets that can take him out of the country and fly him anywhere and he can take cash with him on the plane and deposit the cash in foreign bank accounts and nobody at the foreign banks will question his deposits. This is how the very wealthy circumvent the money laundering laws and they do it all the time and it is completely against the law to do so. Romney’s wealth is way too much and there is no way he should be elected President because he is defrauding the government of the United States of America.

        Have Romney show his taxes and off shore accounts. Let him prove it, not the voter.

They take with them what they saved and no benefits, just like the working american John Varner. Have a great day

        President Barack Obama’s campaign launched a fierce attack on Mitt Romney on Thursday, accusing the White House hopeful of lying about how long he remained head of his firm Bain Capital.
        The Obama campaign seized on a Boston Globe report citing government records which appear to show that the Republican remained in control of the private equity firm for three years beyond the 1999 date he said he had stepped down.
        Editor’s Notes:
        You: On a Diet — Get 99 Tips for Weight Loss From Dr. Oz
        Special: The One Thing You Should Do for Your Prostate Every Morning
        The date could be important, as Bain Capital is alleged to have invested in firms that were outsourcing U.S. work to overseas employers after 1999, and Obama supporters are attempting to paint Romney as a destroyer of jobs.
        The Globe said that, despite Romney’s announced departure, public Securities and Exchange Commission documents filed by Bain state he remained its “sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president.”
        The report, which the Romney camp dismissed as inaccurate, said financial disclosure forms from 2003 showed Romney owned 100 percent of Bain Capital in 2002, and earned a corporate salary of at least $100,000 in 2001 and 2002.
        Bain is the primary source of Romney’s vast wealth, estimated at about $250 million, and the ex-businessman’s finances are at the core of some of the uncertainty surrounding Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts.
        Romney has insisted he was not responsible for Bain-owned companies that went bankrupt or laid off workers after he stepped back from the firm’s day-to-day business in order to manage the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
        “Now, we know that he wasn’t telling the truth,” charged Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter, in a statement.
        Cutter said the report links him to “troubling investments involving outsourcing and bankruptcies” and raises questions about whether he misrepresented his departure date.
        She suggested Romney is “concealing his tax returns because there is still more about this period and beyond that he doesn’t want people to know.”
        Romney has released only his 2010 tax returns and an estimate for 2011, and the Obama team and other Democrats have heaped pressure on the Republican challenger to release more tax data from previous years.
        Critics have hit out at Romney for the Swiss bank account he once held and for investments he has in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, alleging he used offshore financial centers to avoid U.S. taxes.
        “It’s time for Mitt Romney to come clean so that the American people can make their own judgments about his record and his motivations,” Cutter said.
        Mitt Romney’s campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul rejected the Globe article as “not accurate.”
        “As Bain Capital has said, as Gov. Romney has said, and as has been confirmed by independent fact checkers multiple times, Gov. Romney left Bain Capital in February of 1999 to run the Olympics and had no input on investments or management of companies after that point,” she said.
        Obama waded into the fray on Monday, urging Romney to disclose more details of his personal finances and saying every presidential candidate should be “an open book.”

      • aye008

        @John Varner,
        You should request Romney to prove it, not anyonelf, due to if what he has done off shore was not right, then, it will be hit back to Obama.
        If he let reamin unclear, it will hit back to his own (Roney) due to it shows that he avoid taxes, designed for the wealth like him.

        So, what your saying is, if it can be proven that Willard is a tax evader then you will vote for Obama BUT only if he can prove his citizenship which not only the State of Hawaii attests to but your own pub gov’nor confirms.. Under those circumstances, not believing neither State nor rep. Gov., how would you accept Obama’s evidence that even a caveman could understand?

    No one should ever be elected to serve as the leader of a country that he does not fully support. His gain, in protecting his money from our country’s taxation requirements, is taking away from our country’s needed revenue. His failure to pay his fair share, as almost all middle Americans do, makes our debt that much larger. A President that places assets overseas freeing him from paying taxes to the country he wishes to lead should not even be legal. If he truly believes in America and wants to serve as our country’s leader, he should support America in every way possible.

    When he ran and won as governor he got away with not releasing any of his tax returns and also critizisms on his tenure at Bain were dispelled because he claimed he stopped working there in 1999 during the debate, now come to find out that not only was he on SEC filings until 2002 as sole owner, president and shareholder, he was collecting a six figures+ salary. Honestly, I am a 100% Obama suporter, but if Romney can show how a middle class voter like me can get away with what he did, I may vote for him, lol but I know economic magic is only for the 1%.

    Trusting Romney to run the country is like trusting Jerry Sandusky to run a daycare.

      As long as those fat cats pay their just taxes,and earned their money honestly, I don’t mind so much. Are all those jobs they are creating in this country because of their great tax cuts?How many years have these tax cuts been going on ? Shouldn’t the unemployment be less by now, because of all the tax breaks for these fat cats ?

    • Joseph Hemphill

      not jealous, ( please note spelling ), sick and tired of the fat cats buying policy, buying elections, rigging the laws to fatten their bottom line, sucking the life blood of the middle class to become billionaires, disenfranchising the middle class by outsourcing our industrial base, creating non living wage jobs, proselytizing their religious beliefs and legislating their religious beliefs, denying basic health care to the poor, manipulating markets and profiting off the misfortunes of others all the while spouting off about what good Christians they are.

    Obama did not create this mess. He walked into what the Donkeys did, the jackasses. There are many American folks who did not like Clintons morals, but he did this country right and that is what counts. He is no different then many Presidents before him in the White House, they all had secrets in their private lives. I wood vote for Clinton in a heart beat. You all should really hear and take to heart what he states about Romney and this great country going under, because of the greedy politicians and our tax dollar we pay, this county is fading daily. The American dream is no longer and we all might as well stand in a food line, they way the prices keep going up. This country is due for a civil war or close to it. every state should shut down for a day and see how the politicans deal with that. They will need to check their bank accounts or fly to off shore to make a withdraw some funds.

    Obama promised the most open and transparent regime ever . So far we still havent seen his School records , his records for a Foriegn aid student loan , his Conn Soc Sec #, his ” real ” and not forged Birth certificate , Eric Wiholders Fast and Furious documents etc etc etc …and you people are focused on what Romney does with HIS money . I would be more worried about all the OUTSOURCING Obama has done with OUR money

    • rmarqua2921

      Why don’t you just admit you are a racist and can’t wait to get that black man out of the White House! No president has ever been vetted like this one, simply because they couldn’t stand black people…at least if you admitted you are a racist then you’d be honest! And yes, I care a great deal how Romney got his money and why that money is in all these tax haven in the world and not invested in the USA!

    KEEPING THOUGHTFULLY HONEST: After listening to Mr. Romney’s consecutive interviews regarding his “non-involvement “with his Bain Capital even though official signed documents including a 2002 filing that described him as the firm’s “sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president.” He has stated that the reason for voting for him is because of his successful business background at Bain Capital and he knows and has a record as a Job Creator! Hum, but now I puzzled? So let’s examine the facts of what he now says. “Mitt Romney disputed reports that he worked for Bain Capital longer than he had publicly suggested, insisting Friday he had no role “whatsoever” in managing the company after February 1999 when he left to run the Winter Olympics. Public filings from the company suggest otherwise.” Regardless of what the Boston Globe, Mother Jones and Talking Points have reported! “There is absolutely no evidence that I had any role whatsoever in the management of Bain Capital after February 1999.” I have come to two conclusions! One is that he does or does not have Job Creator expertise? That Romney keeps insulting the intelligence of thinking Americans! Mr. Romney, Liar, Liar, Liar, pants on fire! THE INCOVENIENT TRUTH IS: Maybe Mr. Romney plans to create more Jobs that will to be offered to middle class Americans if they self deport to China, India or Singapore with a priority understanding they will be hired there in new manufacturing jobs for lower waged with no health benefits! But it’s a job!

    President Barack Obama’s campaign launched a fierce attack on Mitt Romney on Thursday, accusing the White House hopeful of lying about how long he remained head of his firm Bain Capital.
    The Obama campaign seized on a Boston Globe report citing government records which appear to show that the Republican remained in control of the private equity firm for three years beyond the 1999 date he said he had stepped down.
    Editor’s Notes:

    Special: The One Thing You Should Do for Your Prostate Every Morning
    The date could be important, as Bain Capital is alleged to have invested in firms that were outsourcing U.S. work to overseas employers after 1999, and Obama supporters are attempting to paint Romney as a destroyer of jobs.
    The Globe said that, despite Romney’s announced departure, public Securities and Exchange Commission documents filed by Bain state he remained its “sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer, and president.”
    The report, which the Romney camp dismissed as inaccurate, said financial disclosure forms from 2003 showed Romney owned 100 percent of Bain Capital in 2002, and earned a corporate salary of at least $100,000 in 2001 and 2002.
    Bain is the primary source of Romney’s vast wealth, estimated at about $250 million, and the ex-businessman’s finances are at the core of some of the uncertainty surrounding Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts.
    Romney has insisted he was not responsible for Bain-owned companies that went bankrupt or laid off workers after he stepped back from the firm’s day-to-day business in order to manage the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
    “Now, we know that he wasn’t telling the truth,” charged Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter, in a statement.
    Cutter said the report links him to “troubling investments involving outsourcing and bankruptcies” and raises questions about whether he misrepresented his departure date.
    She suggested Romney is “concealing his tax returns because there is still more about this period and beyond that he doesn’t want people to know.”
    Romney has released only his 2010 tax returns and an estimate for 2011, and the Obama team and other Democrats have heaped pressure on the Republican challenger to release more tax data from previous years.
    Critics have hit out at Romney for the Swiss bank account he once held and for investments he has in Bermuda and the Cayman Islands, alleging he used offshore financial centers to avoid U.S. taxes.
    “It’s time for Mitt Romney to come clean so that the American people can make their own judgments about his record and his motivations,” Cutter said.
    Mitt Romney’s campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul rejected the Globe article as “not accurate.”
    “As Bain Capital has said, as Gov. Romney has said, and as has been confirmed by independent fact checkers multiple times, Gov. Romney left Bain Capital in February of 1999 to run the Olympics and had no input on investments or management of companies after that point,” she said.
    Obama waded into the fray on Monday, urging Romney to disclose more details of his personal finances and saying every presidential candidate should be “an open book.”

    IF YOU THINK THAT IT IS OK FOR A MAN WHO WANTS TO BE OUR PRESIDENT TO HAVE SUBSTANTIAL INVESTMENTS AND HOLDINGS IN OTHER COUNTIES WHILE OUR ECONOMY IS STRUGGLING – FINE. DOES IT QUALIFIE AS JOB CREATOR?
    IF YOU THINK THAT IT IS OK TO RECOMMEND THAT WE LET OUR OWN AUTO INDUSTRY GO BANKRUPT AT A LOSS OF THOSANDS OF JOBS WHILE HOLDING STOCK IN FIAT AND RENAULT – FINE.
    IF YOU THINK THAT FREE MARKET SHOULD REGULATE HOW MUCH AIR AND WATER POLLUTION WE MUST ACCEPT – FINE.

    I SAY THAT EITHER YOU ARE AN IDIOT, YOU HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED BY FAUX NEWS, OR YOUR REAL PROBLEM IS YOU DO NOT WANT A BLACK MAN AS PRESIDENT.

    Romney said that if many previous president released more yrs of tax returns, he will do it.
    Now what he do is nothing, just complains and keep it secrets. So, there must be something to hide.

    Romney is a liar, thief, and definetly not to be trusted. If this country goes REPUBLICAN, we might as well hang it up, unless you earn( I mean earn,not steal & hide) $250,000. a year President Obama may not have done the best job, but at least I believe he is interested in everyone getting a fair shake.

    This from the man who told us “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky”, and ” that depends on what the meaning of the term is is”. How about his rape of Juanita Broderick while he was governor? Shouldn’t that have been disclosed by the media? It didn’t seem to make any difference to John Kerry, who married his money, and is richer by a lot than Mitt Romney. This is so sad, e democrats have nothing positive to run on. Oh, that’s right, they haven’t done anything positive for the last 4 years that they can run on.
