What is Romney hiding?

Ok, I think its time for reasonable people to agree that Mitt Romney has something embarrassing in his tax returns.

He's been accused by Harry Ried of not paying taxes for ten years, and while I agree this is very unlikely, Mitt can take the issue off the table and make Ried look like a complete idiot simply by releasing the documents. Why won't he do it? What is he hiding?

Today, Mitt went in front of the media, and made everything worse by trying to make everything a-ok via a bald assertion:
"Let me also say categorically: I have paid taxes every year," Romney insisted to reporters. "A lot of taxes. A lot of taxes."
Sales taxes? Gas taxes? Real estate taxes? Look Mittens, you can make this go away by releasing your tax returns. What's there that's so awful? What unspinable sin are you hiding?
