Obama’s “tax return” graph is half-true


On July 18, the Obama campaign’s “Truth Team” released a Facebook table comparing the number of “years for which President Obama and Mitt Romney have released their tax returns.” According to the table, which is directly below, the President has released for all of the last 12 years, and Romney for only one, 2010.

This graph is factually inaccurate. As reported by ABC News and practically every other political and news organization in the country in January, Romney released both his full 2010 and preliminary 2011 taxes for public viewing. While a preliminary release is not a full release, it still counts as a release of tax returns.

The President may yet win public approval with his class warfare attacks against Romney (he’s certainly not going to win by focusing on the most important issues to voters, the economy), but he should stick to the facts. I think PolitiFact would rank this as half-true.
