Chewing: Gov. Bentley Tries To Eat His Words About Romney's Taxes

Once the words are spoken, it's very hard to take them back -- especially when they're so obviously true. 

“If you have things to hide, then maybe you’re doing things wrong,” Bentley said. “I think you ought to be willing to release everything to the American people.”

Dr. Gov. Bentley's comments about Mitt Romney's tax returns are featured in a new highlights reel (below the fold) of Republicans saying Romney ought to release those returns ... at the same time Bentley is desperately backpedaling via press release.

"I believe my comments were taken out of context, they were not reported in their entirety, and I want to make sure the record is set straight," Governor Bentley said in a statement.  "I believe in trasparency, and that was the basis for my answer.  I personally choose to release my own returns each year, and there was no effort to imply that Mr. Romney has anything to hide."

Nice try guv, but in the video on the flip, you clearly admit saying, "I do" in response to the question of whether Mitt Romney should release his tax returns.  And your words at the top of this post, "If you have things to hide, then maybe you’re doing things wrong," are a simple truth we all recognize.

The modern GOP (which is full of liars and scoundrels) needs to revise Reagan's 11th Commandment: Never speak ill the truth of fellow Republicans.
