Will GOP Get Personal With Pederast Harry Reid Over Tax Comments?

I have multiple unnamed sources which have informed me that Harry Reid (D-Nevada) likes to wear Hello Kitty thongs while addressing the Senate, along with being a pederast. It’s up to Reid to prove the allegations wrong. And, Reid just might find himself on the wrong end of this fight, as the GOP digs up real dirt, dirt that includes facts about Reid that he probably won’t want out in the public domain

(Politico) The Sunday news shows featured a rare spectacle that at once revealed the decline of civility in Washington and the depth of GOP outrage over Harry Reid’s unproven claim that Mitt Romney didn’t pay income taxes for an entire decade: two of the nation’s top GOP officials flat out called the Senate majority leader a liar.

That’s no ordinary criticism in official Washington.

There are plenty of other ways that pols use to call out their partisan rivals on their statements. Reid’s GOP counterpart, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, for one, has already said Reid’s charge is “beneath the dignity” of his office.

But the actual term ‘liar’ crosses a line that’s seldom breached, signaling a widespread GOP belief that, even by the diminished standards of contemporary political debate, Reid has violated a code.

Lindsay Graham called Reid a liar, and Reince Preibus said

“As far as Harry Reid is concerned, listen, you might want to go down that road, I’m not going to respond to a dirty liar, who hasn’t filed a single page of tax returns himself,” Priebus said on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos. “He complains about money but lives in the Ritz Carlton here, down the street. If this is on the agenda, I’m not going to go there. This is just a made-up issue. The fact that we’re going to spend any time talking about it is just ridiculous.”

It’s a total made up issue. Exactly what is the reason behind wanting Romney’s tax returns? What will that prove? That he’s rich? That he, like many rich people, spreads his money to overseas accounts to avoid getting nailed on taxes? One of the Democrats favorite Senators, Ted Kennedy, received his money from an overseas trust fund. Where’s the outrage? Otherwise, what’s the point? Perhaps a Liberal can explain what’s so darned important about the returns.

Now, though, the GOP has indicated it plans to make it personal. Between the loaded language and Priebus’s pointed reference to Reid’s Ritz-Carlton abode – an issue that surfaced in the senator’s 2010 re-election campaign – Republicans just sent the clearest signal to Reid yet that he needs to either produce the evidence, stand down or prepare for an extended public discussion of his own finances.

Ed Morrissey has already reposted an article about Reid’s finances, and plans on posting more. You can bet that the GOP has plenty of information on Harry Reid, and probably Obama, that they can use. The Romney camp didn’t want to get into personal smears this cycle, but, Team Obama might force the issue.

Tell you what: if Obama removes his Executive Privilege from the Fast and Furious documents, I’ll call for Romney to release his returns. Sound fair?

More: Fortunately, Queen Nancy chimes in

“Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact,” Pelosi told The Huffington Post in a Sunday interview. “Whether he did or not can easily be disposed of: Mitt Romney can release his tax returns and show whether he paid taxes.”

In Democrat World, a person Republican is guilty till proven innocent. Unless one is a mastermind of 9/11, then they need every protection provided by the law. Anyway, Queen Nancy misses the part about facts being things that people can see, not assumptions by unnamed people. Oh, and how did Nancy become so rich on a Congressional salary? Let’s see her tax returns.

  1. Sounds eminently fair to me.

    You’re really opening yourself up to a libel suit with that headline. Regardless of what you think of what Reid did, he likely has the cash to defend himself in such a suit. If you don’t, then I would be careful.

    The law is particularly unkind to libel of a sexual natural.

  3. If Reid can make unfounded accusations, why can’t I? According to Reid’s viewpoint, the person being accused has to prove their innocence.

    The pederast thing came from Ace Of Spades, BTW.

    “Exactly what is the reason behind wanting Romney’s tax returns? What will that prove?”

    That he can be trusted. That’s why everyone releases them.

    Not releasing them makes it impossible for Romney to defend himself against claims he’s doing business with terror regimes or profiting from American job losses. For him not do so and leave himself open to attacks like this is political malpractice.

    You think “Romney hasn’t paid federal taxes for 10 years” is bad? Wait until we’re told that “Romney made millions off the financial crisis and shifted the money into foreign accounts to evade the IRS”. Wait until it you hear “Romney was in business with Iraq/Iran/Satan while our troops were in harms way”. And watch him yell LIAR! while steadfastly refusing to actually show anyone what the hell he was up to during the last decade.

    That’s the whole point but I think everyone already knows this. Romney has painted himself into a corner with his tongue. Every awful thing he is accused of becomes a plausible explanation when he shrinks into a defensive crouch and refuses to prove his accusers are lying.

    That’s the whole game. If Romney is willing to be accused of these things, then the real dirt in those tax documents must be even worse.

    The only real question is how much of the remaining campaign is Mitt willing to waste on this fatally flawed strategy and whether he’ll release the tax returns himself. Make no mistake, the documents WILL be released. They’ve been passed around among any number of people over they years. McCain’s people had them in 2008 and they hated Romney with a passion. At some point the long knives will come out and the NYT, Drudge or WaPo will drop the bomb on Romneyland if he doesn’t act first. My guess is that he’s frozen like a deer in the headlights and he’ll allow his enemies to choose the manner in which this occurs.

    I agree. And I find it highly deplorable that a member of the KKK like you, October, would dare poke your head out of your electronic door. YOu do know the feds are watching your every move. I mean, with what you have done recently. I can’t believe that you would be speaking out so soon after your supposed illegal late-night cemetery necrophilia raid parties. You really tore those bodies up. I am sure it was much worse, but that was all the guy was able to tell me before he went completely insane. He TOLD me. The fact that you have been accused of this must mean worse things have happened under your direction.

    Is it also true October that you may have had sex with your entire family last year? When did you start that up again? Your family dog and parakeet were so messed up that they had to be put down. And I’m not talking psychologically messed up either. You are sick man. Very sick. With the reports out all over the media about you, I can only imagine what ISN’T being reported is much much MUCH worse.

    You really need to come out and provide accurate, legible, and documented proof that you have stopped these heinous acts. The ball is in your court now.

    Oh, sorry, got sidetracked. The Repubs in Congress need to immediately move to censure Dirty Harry Reid. And make the motion clear about the evidence, use of slander even outside the bounds of political gamesmanship, the illegality of “viewing\knowing” someone else’s tax records, should not be tolerated especially from a leader of Congress.

    We can leave the investigations in to his own shady tax and property deals for after the election.
