Ryan confirms he turned over “several” years of tax returns to Romney

Paul Ryan confirms on 60 Minutes that Mitt Romney made him turn over more years of tax returns, to vet him as a possible VP, than Romney will turn over to the American people, so we can vet him as a possible president. Romney turned over 1.5 years worth of returns. Ryan was asked to turn over “several” years, which usually means 3 or more.

It’s brazen and arrogant, and tone deaf, of Romney.  What’s particularly galling is that Romney is more worried about Ryan’s gaffe-factor than he is about his own qualifications for the presidency.  The gaffe-factor must be avoided at all costs, thus the several years of returns – but Romney’s qualifications, not so important, just a year’s complete returns is fine.
