Columnist George Will: The conservative Washington Post columnist said on ABC's This Week on Sunday, "Mitt Romney has said he has released all that’s necessary for people to understand 'something' about my finances. Now 'something' is a pregnant word.... The costs of not releasing the returns are clear; therefore, he must have calculated there are higher costs to releasing them." He also addressed Matalin: "But, Mary, is it not what you call a 'real fact' that Mitt Romney gave to the [John] McCain campaign, when it was considering him as a running mate, 23 years of tax returns?"

Former RNC Chairman Michael Steele: "Look, if there's nothing there, there's no there there; don't create a there," Steele said on MSNBC on July 10. "In other words, put out as much information as you can. Even if you don't release 12 years' worth of tax returns, at least three, four, five. You begin that drip back the other way. And it helps to offset some of the noise and the bleeding, if you will, from the cuts that you're getting."
