It’s about damn time. I was not going to write a post on that contemptible mope from Nevada, the little gollum who got his marching orders from the WH to go on character assassination detail, but finally somebody has the onions to call a spade a spade:
The odd thing (OK, maybe for the dems, not so odd) was that the original story was so deliciously preposterous, so left field, so ,”Are you freakin’ insane?” that logic would assume he would see how stupid he looks hatching a clearly ridiculous story, then go crawl back under his rock, and rest up to fight another day. But remarkably he has doubled down on the stupid and continued to wring that shammy:
Happy Wednesday and welcome to August. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he’s been told by a Bain Capitol investor that the reason Mitt Romney won’t release his tax returns is that Romney didn’t pay taxes for a decade:
-> “He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” Reid told the Huffington Post in an interview. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look? … You guys have said his wealth is $250 million. Not a chance in the world. It’s a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty well if you don’t pay taxes for 10 years when you’re making millions and millions of dollars.”
I want Romney’s tax accountant, that guy knows his stuff. Beyond the obvious; a rich guy who’s life is going well is going to risk it all/risk going to jail to avoid paying taxes, a guy who’s political aspirations were evident since he could spell “JOB”, is going to throw all that away. This is just crazy, what’s next, claims from employees from 30 years ago that he got frisky with them?
The other oddity is that investors are not privy to and, or can access tax records of those money managers that invest their money, that is not part of the fund prospectus, so any claims of knowledge in this area falls squarely under the umbrella of “dirty liar”.
Because there is no sense of fair play, no even playing field, no level of scrutiny for both sides, the MSM will not shine light on this pile of manure, someone else needs to. It takes zero imagination to consider the reaction if Mitch McConnell had made similar claims about BHO in August of 2008, “get a rope” would have been the tamest reaction.
Yes, i’m glad that the RNC chairman called Reid out as a dirty liar, but can we have someone a bit higher on the food chain demonstrate similar conviction? We pretty much knew that Obama did not like Romney, now we know for sure, but I don’t want Romney doing his best McCain impression of “Well, gosh darn, no need to get personal, I’m sure he is a fine man so I will just focus on my abilities and let sleeping dogs lie”. It is time to wake up those dogs, time to start wrestling them pigs.
Obama has said some outrageous stuff over the last few months, go after him, he is going after you.
