By now, everyone who cares has heard or read about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) transparent and cowardly slandering of Gov. Mitt Romney last week, while protected from being sued over the matter because he was speaking on the Senate floor.
Using the old…’someone, who shall remain anonymous, called me today’ routine, the diminutive Nevada Democrat said an investor in Romney’s former private equity firm, Bain Capital, told him Romney had not paid any income taxes over the past 10 years…
The word’s out that he hasn’t paid any taxes for 10 years. Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t.
Mitt Romney, rightfully and forcefully denied Reid’s accusation, and immediately called his bluff from the stump, and later on Sean Hannity’s FOXNews show, demanding that “Harry” … “put up, or shut up,” according to a FOXNews article today.
Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with, because, of course, that is totally and completely wrong. It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate. It’s wrong.
So, I’m looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources, and we will probably find out it’s the White House.
Any proverbial ‘fifth-grader’ would have immediately spotted Reid’s [juvenile] gambit as just another impotent tactic in the broader Democratic attack on Romney for declining to release more than the legally required two years of tax returns.
Not surprisingly, Obama campaign adviser, David Axelrod, told “Fox News Sunday” that he doesn’t know “who Harry was talking to,” according to a FOXNews article today.
Why would Team Obama heavy-weights like Harry Reid and David Axelrod cast themselves as ‘Dumb and Dumber’ on the national stage?
Simple…the very expensive, but light-weight Obama assaults against Romney have completely missed their target, regardless of what Democrat-over-sampled mainstream media polls ‘reveal,’ and they feel they may find a ‘silver bullet‘ in those additional tax returns, with which to beguile the electorate.
Unfortunately for them, Team Romney rightfully refuses to ship.
The truth is that time is running out and the walls are closing in quickly on Team Obama–especially in the fundraising department, as Mitt Romney and the RNC raised another $101 million in July, bringing their total bank balance to $186 million…not including the financially formidable GOP Super PACs.
Pitifully, Reid and Axelrod’s detestable behavior confirms this, and that Democrats truly believe Independent voters have no cognitive powers or integrity, and that misguided calculus is exactly what will deliver a dramatic Democrat demise 95 days from now.
