Same But Different

Eric Fehrnstrom—spokesman for both Mitt Romney and Scott Brown—has brushed off demands that Mitt release up to 23 years' worth of tax returns by arguing the four years of returns he's already released were "sufficient." Yet, Brown has released six years' worth of returns and is encouraging Democratic opponent Elizabeth Warren to release more than the four she already agreed to. Where Brown tries to appeal to the center, Romney makes every effort to to appear right wing. What's good for the Massachusetts senator isn't, apparently, always good for the presidential hopeful from the same state.
