Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has often bragged about his business record at Bain Capital and all the jobs that he claims to have created.
But in a recent interview, with Chuck Todd of MSNBC, Romney said he wanted the Obama campaign to stop talking about his business record and the income tax returns that he refuses to release, dating back ten years.
Romney did release his 2010 taxes and has promised to release his 2011 taxes, which have yet to be released with less than 90 days to go before the election.
Politco.com reports Romney as saying:
"Our campaign would be helped immensely if we had an agreement between both campaigns that we were only going to talk about issues and that attacks based upon business or family or taxes or things of that nature."
"We only talk about issues. And we can talk about the differences between our positions and our opponent's position. Our ads haven't gone after the president personally... We haven't dredged up the old stuff that people talked about last time around. We haven't gone after the personal things" [although the Romney Super PACs have].
