ATLANTA  - Democrat Roy Barnes released 25 years of tax returns and called on his opponents in the race for governor to do the same.

The tax returns - along with a a new financial disclosure form - show that Barnes has raked in millions of dollars since he was ousted from the governor's mansion in 2002. He and his wife Marie listed a net worth of $16.6 million. That's up from $12.6 million in 2001 just before he left office. His total income in 2009 was $5 million.

Barnes said Wednesday he won't apologize for being succesful and could bring the same level of prosperity to the state.

Barnes' Democratic opponent, Attorney General Thurbert Baker, on Wednesday outlined an economic development plan he said would create 25,000 biotech jobs in Georgia.

Gee, Roy Barnes, according to

Gee, Roy Barnes, according to the big O, you have made more than enough income--are you ready to dispense it among us "have nots?" Of course, you do realize that dispensing your excess income does NOT APPLY to the big O--he intends to keep his earnings because he believes he is our king/emperor/czar/dictator/tyrant in office.

Roy passed the education reform bill and changed the flag to remove the confederate battle flag.

The last time I heard about Barnes he was doing free work for po folks.

I do remember him campaigning for Senator Walker while he was under indictment.
