Romney's Ace in the Hole

Washington, DC. With a chorus comprised of Democrats, pundits and even many very prominent Republicans calling on candidate Mitt Romney to release more of his tax returns, the Romney campaign is hunkering down, hoping the bombardment will soon be over.

This latest salvo comes on the heels of a non-stop Bain blitz that has the GOP candidate seeing his poll numbers decline in key battleground states.

However, the Obama campaign shows no signs of easing the barrage of negative ads or forgoing raising questions about Mr. Romney's unreleased tax documents. This strategy has the presumptive presidential nominee fending off attacks from all sides, and has deprived him of the opportunity to take the offensive.

"We are hoping this will all blow over," said Matt Rhoades, Romney campaign manager, "and we will once again be able to resume our normal obfuscation, calumniation, aspersions and fantastic hyperbole. But in the meantime, we are saving our ace in the hole for November."

"And what would that be, sir?"

"Mitt Romney is still not Black."
