Harry Reid really has to put up or shut up all right so -- who are your sources.
Let let's let's have -- explain who that is and by the way -- I understand what you try to do you're you're trying to deflect.
The fact that jobs numbers are bad.
That Americans are out of work and you're trying to sort anything up on the screen -- -- grab attention.
Well I was governor Romney firing back at senator Harry Reid for accusing him.
Of not disclosing enough of his tax return information but this is two years on released returns why hasn't the candidate made his returns available to the public yet.
Joining us to talk about that further is Andrea -- Press Secretary to governor Mitt Romney's campaign welcome -- good to see you.
Think that lets say get right to the point here why hasn't the governor release those returns.
I had governor Romney's -- -- 700 pages a tax return information he's generally is 2011 return when it's ready.
He's release -- five years of returns -- -- personal financial disclosure forms from when he ran for governor.
He's released three forms from when he's run for president and -- is on our website this is hundreds of pages of personal financial information.
And said to governor Romney's -- It's clear what President Obama has asserted -- that's -- -- sinking lower and lower to distract any way they can from the terrible jobs numbers.
And we saw yesterday was just another kick in the -- to the middle class.
Tell me a little bit more about this it it -- senator Harry Reid it is not the first time he's been accused of authoring global -- blows he.
Has done this in the past clearly and others say.
That he used.
No sources on this undisclosed sources.
And clearly a problems -- first time he's done this -- seems to me that if if the governor awarded to fight back enough.
Strongest possible way he could he would release that it would be a slam dunk against.
Well again President Obama has all of his friends and allies doing anything they came to distract from what Americans care about which is jobs.
And the economy and this week governor -- talked about his -- and strengthen the middle class.
-- -- includes trade practices that work -- not just for other companies.
Also helping small businesses I don't know if you saw the wall street journal editorial this morning but they talked about how President Obama wants -- to go off the tax -- He's willing to raise taxes on small business -- and that's just not the way that we're gonna turn this economy -- Ray -- We think throughout his term net -- Obama's hot salvage not creators.
And yet he says that his plea and worked.
And net the private sector is doing fine and it's clean and it's not -- if -- repeatedly have a problem here how much he can pick set.
When Harry Reid sort of double down on this accusation it sent a message to many people that that he must be listening to.
A focus group somewhere that this class warfare issue is resonating with a certain segment of the American population do you concur with that.
Well this that president surrogate they're gonna try to do anything they can -- tried to bad Americans.
And be -- pit people against each other.
What we really need now -- -- people to come together.
So that we can create jobs again and -- this country maybe weekend and -- Obama just wants to double down on the failed policies haven't.
I mean he's -- yesterday eight point 3% unemployment.
That's in our take we're heading in the wrong direction under this president and his policies are not gonna write -- step.
You do you know that this accusation from Reid is gonna be resonating with a certain popular population in the American public those who who watch certain media.
And don't want to listen to what's being said on the other side the Media Research Center recently did a study that found 86% of the coverage.
You're a guy that was negative in the mainstream media following his trip to Israel Poland -- England how do you fight that.
You know a lot of places -- people get it needs these days.
The governor rod he's gonna continue to talk about his play in the -- and the middle class to turn the economy around and we just have to put our message out there anyway that we can.
