President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies have launched a sustained attack this week over Mitt Romney's refusal to release additional tax returns, suggesting the Republican nominee is trying to "hide" something from the American people.

On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid suggested Romney would never win Senate confirmation for a Cabinet position because "he won't show anybody his tax returns." But as Politico reports, Reid took that criticism a step further on Thursday, saying that Romney couldn't even win confirmation to be a "dog catcher."

"He not only couldn't be confirmed as a Cabinet secretary, he couldn't be confirmed as a dog catcher, because a dog catcher ... you're at least going to want to look at his income tax returns," Reid said.

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
