On the political pressure Mitt Romney faces from Democrats and some Republicans to release more of his tax returns…

I hope Romney is keeping track of who, on our side, is caving to Obama’s demands. I hope he understands it’s the Tea Party sticking by him, and not the establishment Republicans. I hope Romney understands that it’s the Tea Party and the conservative base that is supporting him on this tax return issue. That it’s the Republican establishment and their associated media allies which are trying to acquiesce to demands from the Obama campaign from the White House. This is not commonplace politics. This is not going to make the issue go away. All these guys want the issue to go away… They don’t understand that all it’ll do is amplify the tax issue, the wealth issue, and give Obama and Democrats hundreds of thousands of pages of stuff to lie about, to distort… how this is not understood is peculiar to me.
