Romney had released those documents to the McCain camp in 2008 when he was under consideration for the vice presidential slot that eventually went to Sarah Palin, The Washington Post Election 2012 blog
“John Kerry only introduced two years; Mitt Romney did; I did. Two years is sufficient,” Sen. McCain, R-Ariz., said in an appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation. “And frankly, I’m not sure that’s the key issue that Americans are really worried about.”
