In 2010, Obama Advocated For Fiscal Details Coming Out After An Election

The President attacked Mitt Romney at a campaign stop in Iowa today for not giving specific details in his tax plan. “He says he will let you know after the election. Now, here’s a tip. Usually when a politician tells you he’ gonna wait until after the election to explain a plan to you, they do not have a pleasant surprise in store for you,” Obama said. But in 2010, President Obama argued for not releasing fiscal details until after an election to avoid political posturing and “because nobody will have an honest conversation.”
