Legally? No

Perception to the American people? Yes and immensely it does.

He looks shady and people don't like that. To go through all this scrutiny to keep them hidden and still not release them just lets it blow up even more and more.

Then he comes out with "I never paid under 13% taxes". Is that supposed to help make the American people feel good? You have boatloads of money and us middle class hard workers have to pay double in taxes than what you do?

That's the problem and Romney knows it.  Him admitting he paid 13% is the first step to him releasing them, which I now believe he will do. Let this 13% number get worked up over and then die down, and then he will release them and it will be less of a shock. I think that is his plan.

No, they don't matter, but President Obama's college transcripts do because they reveal his actual intelligence, which is not very much.
