Romney to Harry Reid on tax claims: Put up or shut up

posted at 8:19 pm on August 2, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Daily Caller, a nice answer to a question Romney was ready for. Fehrnstrom was ready too on Fox this morning:

“This reminds me of the McCarthy hearings back in the 1950s,” Eric Fehrnstrom said on Fox News. “And it was another son from Massachusetts, Joseph Welch, who finally asked the question that should be asked of Harry Reid, which is, ‘Have you no sense of decency, sir?’ Is there nothing that you won’t do in the name of dirty politics? I think it’s just shameful.”…

“I’m telling you, authoritatively, speaking on behalf of the governor, that those charges are untrue,” said Fehrnstrom, a longtime Romney aide. “They’re baseless.”

“Beneath the dignity of his office” is how Mitch McConnell described Reid’s floor speech this morning. One interesting footnote in all this: Unless I missed a story somewhere, no one of any consequence is defending Reid even though his point about Mitt’s tax returns is squarely in line with the White House’s basic messaging. I wonder if that’s because, with even famous liberals turning on him, there’s too much risk in taking his side or if it’s because Reid agreed behind closed doors to serve as lightning rod for the Dems in pushing this smear out there. As noted yesterday, he specializes in sleazy attacks during presidential campaigns. He’s probably enjoying this. Who needs allies in that case?

The other question: Is Romney right that the White House put Reid up to it? Probably, but like I say, Reid’s a rodent when it comes to this sort of thing. Axelrod probably figured that he’d find his way to a smear like this on his own, in due time. Hey, maybe Ax was the mysterious “Bain investor” who called Reid up and told him that Romney’s been ducking his tax obligations. That’d be all Dingy needs to go to the press with it.

Two clips here, one of Romney and the other via Mediaite of Rush Limbaugh having fun with Reid’s “logic.”

I heard it live. Mitt was very good.

Also just read on the Ulsterman Report that the Romney camp leaked two internal polls to the Obama camp giving Romney a ten and twelve point lead in a swing state. They are panicking over it.

You didn’t build that.

the new aesthetic on August 2, 2012 at 8:24 PM

You know what’s in Romneys returns. More of the same stuff in the 2 returns he released. tax shelters, foreign accounts. the super rich spread their wealth around the world and use esoteric tax shelters.

Romney has been audited in the past and will be audited in the future.

thebrokenrattle on August 2, 2012 at 8:26 PM

Dingy has been hitting it hard the last couple of days. Here’s another completely a$$inine remark he made:

Harry Reid: Drooling old men are trying to buy election

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in an effort to mock Republican donors, resorted to senility jokes in an interview published yesterday.

“Because of the Citizens United decision, Karl Rove and the Republicans are looking forward to a breakfast the day after the election,” Reid told The Huffington Post. “They are going to assemble 17 angry old white men for breakfast, some of them will slobber in their food, some will have scrambled eggs, some will have oatmeal, their teeth are gone. But these 17 angry old white men will say, ‘Hey, we just bought America. Wasn’t so bad. We still have a whole lot of money left.’”

Reid and the Democrats’ antagonism for wealthy Republican backers is well established, but using the infirmities of old age to turn public opinion against those donors tends to jar with Reid’s reputation for fighting “age discrimination” perpetrated by insurance companies and standing up for the dignity of senior citizens.

Too bad Rush didn’t get that call early in 2009. If he had then there would have been no need for Rush to hope Obama would fail, ’cause he would have been sure of it!

I have to say that Jon Stewart positively curb-stomped Reid last night over his comments about Romney’s father not being proud of him. I think it might have hit a nerve deep inside Stewart.

Good for him, but this issue will not die until after the election. I actually admire mitt for having at least one core conviction about which has not and will not flip flop, but this kind of demagoguing goes with the territory. Playing defense will only go so far, the need to hit back is now and should have been done yesterday.

The reason Obama wants Romney to release is because Obama knows he can’t legally release Romney’s returns and a leak would backfire.

gracie on August 2, 2012 at 8:43 PM

The Dems are so desperate at this point they will invent and repeat any lie as a distraction. I think the polling is scaring them to death and the economic numbers coming out tomorrow will seal the deal.

I doubt that Mitt is afraid of liberal threats. He’s been a public person and candidate for quite some time. Since he has lived off his investments for more than a decade and gives generously to charities, his past 10 years of taxes probably indicate the same results as the last 2 years’ worth. And we know of the foreign bank accounts because they were legally declared and taxed.

It’s about time he spoke out. Harry needs put up or shut up. It’s not like Harry was ever fond of releasing his (he won’t) because we’ll find out just how rich he became while a public servant and perhaps how he accumulated the wealth.

While the Dems are accusing Romney yet again of felony, reveal the source, Harry you coward.

Maybe Congress should put Harry under oath.

…according to the candidate, at some point, Romney was audited, perhaps more than once: “From time to time I’ve been audited.” So Romney has been audited, but somehow the IRS audit missed a ten-year period where he didn’t pay any taxes?

So, we know Romney released his return for 2010. Which means any “ten year window” would have to be 1999-2009 at the earliest.

His campaign said that Romney has not been audited in the past ten years – meaning the audit occurred before 2002.

Either the IRS audit of Romney from 2001 or earlier completely missed a ten year period of Romney “not paying any taxes for ten years” … or Harry Reid is full of crap. Source

Exactly. They’ve got them. Of course they’ve got them. Every agency of the federal government is nothing but a democrat-marxist holding tank. And all the records show is that Romney is rich, he pays a lot of taxes, he’s rich, he gives a lot to charity, he’s rich, he takes advantage of every opportunity the tax laws allow to hold on to the money he has earned, and he’s rich. But if barack leaks Romney’s tax records, it will be a bridge too far, and the backlash will be unparalleled in American political history. It will walk and talk like pure fascism. Part of me hopes they do it, because the price for barack and the democrats will be so high.

You are so scary…I know if I was Mitt Romney I would be shaking in my boots just knowing someone as big and bad as you was after me.

Someone called and told me that Harry Reid had forced sex with each of his four sons on a regular basis while they were minors. He committed these offenses for a period of ten years.

Forget Mitt’s tax returns.

Almost four days into increasingly persistent allegations that #HarryReidIsAPederast, this afternoon Google had almost 11,000,000 hits for “Harry Reid Pederast”, and still Harry Reid continues to stonewall those serious allegations with very, very telling silence.

If he doesn’t speak up and release every single record pertaining to his life then how can we know that those allegations are untrue?

I don’t think the burden should be on the ones making the allegations, the burden should be on HIM to prove that he’s innocent of raping children. Using his own logic, that is.

Harry Reid: Have you stopped raping little boys? Inquiring minds demand to know.
