President Obama appears to agree with the majority of the American people who believe 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney should release his Tax Returns.

Perhaps that is because those commentators don’t bother to read and evaluate them, specifically MSNBC’s commentator Lawrence O’Donnell who had the audacity to suggest, without any facts, that Mitt Romney spoke at the NAACP Convention in hope of getting booed.
