Wow, did WaPo’s Dave Weigel bust Mitt Romney for tax return hypocrisy or what? Check this out:
— Dave Weigel (@daveweigel) April 8, 2019
Get it? Romney’s full of it because … he doesn’t think Congress should be able to compel people to make their tax returns public? Boy, Dave, you sure showed him!
The hypocrisy is unreal. It was trump who demanded that Romney release his taxe. And now he won't release his own, and Romney supports him 100%. This is a cult of enablers and sycophants.

The hypocrisy is unreal, all right. Because it’s nonexistent.
What’s your point?

What point are you trying to make here?

Not sure what you’re doing here.

What he’s doing is trying to make Mitt Romney look like a liar. He’s only succeeded in making himself look obtuse.
What does "through legislation" mean, Dave?

He also said Trump should release them, but whatevs!

TFW you think this is a sick burn because everything that's good must be legislated. https://t.co/Wo8FWDGVld

Dave apparently doesn’t realize this, but he hasn’t actually presented any evidence that Romney’s position has been inconsistent with regard to tax returns.
“You should eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables”
… does not equal …
“It should be illegal to not eat a government mandated amount of fruits and vegetables”

"A person ought to do this, but Congress ought not force him to" is a pretty common conservative stance.

Democracy dies in denseness. Better luck next time, Dave!
