Icheoku says unbeknonwst to President Barack Obama, to every rule there is an exception! So to the rule that the records of anyone who wants to preside over our affairs as president must be completely accessible to us, exists an exception. It is called the Romney exception, named after the Republican presidential candidate who has till date, stonewalled every effort at unmasking his true identity. Who truly is Mitt Romney or is the Mitt simply a myth? Americans are seriously beginning to wonder out aloud what this Mitt is hiding and the second to zero chance they would elect a phantom for president. A man without any records they can fact-check for accuracy or whose records they cannot even access due to roadblocks put in place by the candidate himself.
Mitt Romney has refused to release his complete tax returns to enable Americans make an informed decision as to his petition to become their president. Records filed with Securities and Exchange Commission by his company Bain Capital, indicates that Mitt Romney remained its "100 percent sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president up till 2003; whereas the Mitt himself claims that he completely divested himself from the company in 1999. Icheoku queries as between Mitt Romney's recollections and the records his company earlier filed with the commission, who or which is not telling the truth? As with records, they are made with every lucidity imaginable and when there is no reason to lie, mislead or falsify accounts; unlike now during the heat of a contentious election cycle when previous records come back to hunt candidates. So Icheoku asks, does Mitt Romney have some motive here for misstating dates already documented with the Securities and Exchange Commission?
Icheoku says it is most probable that the Republican Party's presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a man with financial net worth in excess of $250 million does not want Americans to know how he made his money taking over companies, firing workers and then cannibalizing same for profit. A callous, inhumane, ruthless, non-compassionate, get-rich quick, company bursting and raiding approach, which the Texas Governor, Rick Perry, once described as vulture capitalism. Now the vulture capitalist numero uno Mitt Romney does not want to make his tax records public for the American people to see to help them decide if he is fit to become their president this November. Icheoku says if Mitt Romney will not blink and release his tax returns, America people should not either; and must reject such a farce this November at the polls. What is Mitt Romney hiding from public view or is he now the only exception to the time-tested rule that anyone who must be our president must be an open book capable of easy decoding.
