In New Hampshire, Mitt Romney Tries to Show He’s a Common Man

As he continued his bus tour on the Thursday before Christmas weekend, Mitt Romney may have been hoping to connect with regular folks.

 

At a service station in Randolph, New Hampshire, he pumped the gas himself.

But voters weren’t necessarily buying his ‘just folks’ demeanor. When he joked with a woman at the service station about buying a classic car her family owns, she asked, “$10,000?” — an echo of his unfortunate bet with Texas Gov. Rick Perry in a recent debate.

Mitt Willard Romney will not reveal his tax returns, at least for now

 

Also refuses to say if he gains from loopholes

LANCASTER, N.H. – Mitt Romney said yesterday he has no current plans to release his tax returns, and suggested that he would not shrink from using a controversial provision of the tax code that allows him to pay at just a 15 percent rate on income he continues to receive from Bain Capital.

“We don’t have any current plans to release tax returns, but never say never,’’ he said yesterday after greeting voters at an Agway farm and hardware store here. “We’ll see what the future holds. We’ve released, of course, all of the information required by law, which is a pretty extensive release. But down the road we’ll see what happens if I’m the nominee.’’

Romney also indicated that he would not shy away from a legal tax break that shelters partners at private equity firms, like Bain Capital, from high tax rates on the largest part of their take-home profits.
