Columbus, OH—As the presidential campaign heads into its final spin cycle, undecided voters in battleground states are demanding that Mitt Romney “Show Me The MITTFAX!” Up to now, Romney has managed to go further and longer than any presidential candidate in history while providing almost no detailed information about himself or his policies.

On the economy Romney has promised a 20% across-the-board tax cut that would add $5 trillion to the deficit. Romney has said this is not true because he said it was not true, but has offered zero information about what deductions or programs he would eliminate to offset the $5 trillion.

In the area of healthcare, Romney has repeatedly said that he would repeal and replace Obamacare, but has yet to say what he would replace it with. The only detail he has provided is that his plan would cover pre-existing conditions. But what he has failed to say audibly is that his plan would only provide such coverage if a policyholder had continuous coverage. This provision has already been law—since 1998.

Regarding his tax returns, Romney has released just two, while every other candidate for the highest office in the land over the past half century has released at least 10 years, including Romney’s father George who released 12 years when he ran for the presidency in 1968. At issue here in particular are Romney’s undisclosed 2008 and 2009 returns which could show that Romney participated in a IRS tax amnesty program to avoid criminal prosecution for sheltering money illegally in overseas accounts to avoid taxes.

All of this prompted a response from Ohioan Bart Lewis. “Now Romney’s this car guy, right? So suppose his beliefs and policies were used cars. You’d have to be nuts to buy what he’s selling without repair and accident records.” It was this concern that led Lewis to come up with the idea of “Show Me The MITTFAX”—a parody of the popular “Show Me The CARFAX” advertising campaign.

Meanwhile, Romney presidential campaign senior advisor Eric Fehrnstrom said that Romney was unavailable to comment on the MITTFAX controversy because he was having the right front and right rear tires of his Cadillac SUV replaced for excessive wear.
