Thanks for the laugh!

Over at Business Insider I saw a ridiculous reference to an LDS General Conference article within an editorial geared towards shaming Romney (or driving a wedge in public opinion against Romney - same thing) about not releasing more tax returns.

The General Conference article is called Doing the Right Thing at the Right Time, without Delay. Naturally I have no problem with the substance of this General Conference message, but what does that have to do with Romney releasing his tax returns? BI seems to think that releasing returns is a 'right thing' on par with obeying God's commandments - but the argument has flawed logic. It is not against the law to not release tax returns when running for president. Romney has released last year's returns and plans to release this year's returns - and two is standard for presidential nominees - at his own convenience. Not the convenience of the liberal media or the Obama campaign. As John Nolte on Breitbart often says, Romney's playing chess, not checkers.
