The daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney is calling on presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to not release more than the two years of tax returns that he has made public -- even though her father released 10 years worth when he was on the GOP ticket in 2000.

"You've got a situation now where it looks like the president's opposition researchers have run out of material to use a distraction from the returns that have already been released," Liz Cheney told Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday. "There will never be enough [for the Obama campaign], no matter how many years of returns the governor releases."

"So, what, Romney should just say, no?" Wallace wondered.

"I think he's good where's he is, frankly," Liz Cheney insisted. "And I think the Obama administration focus on this is because they don't want to have to talk about the economy, they don't want to have to talk about the fact that the president doesn't believe that if you've got a small business or any kind of business, you've built it yourself."

"They don't want the American people to actually look at his failed record and his failed policy."

Two months before the 2000 election, Dick Cheney released 10 years of tax returns, from 1989 to 1999.
