Taking down Harry Reid’s accusations against Romney

posted at 1:21 pm on August 3, 2012 by Dustin Siggins

Recently, Senate Majority Leader Reid (D-NV) publicly said an unnamed source told Reid that Mitt Romney had not paid taxes for most of the last twelve years. This has risen to something of a brouhaha, and on Megyn Kelly’s show yesterday former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen and Kelly basically put Reid and his Democratic supporters in their respective places.

First, it was Kelly who asked if it was even appropriate for Reid to accuse Romney on the Senate floor. To take her question one step further, would that be an abuse of power? Is that a powerful public official using his position to target an individual private citizen? It sure seems like it.

Second, Thiessen mockingly accused Reid of beating his wife, and said the burden of proof was on Reid to prove Thiessen wrong. Thiessen’s liberal counterpart, Julie Roginsky, responded by saying the burden of proof is on Romney, but that was just partisanship on her part — clearly, an unsourced accusation requires zero response. More importantly, it should completely destroy the credibility of the accuser, especially one as experienced and powerful as Reid. Kelly pointed this out to Roginsky, saying that Reid’s accusations have importance because of Reid’s position as Senate Majority Leader.

Third, according to Thiessen, Reid declined an official request to put out his own recent tax returns. Hypocrisy much?

In watching this little back-and-forth, it occurred to me that Nevada taxpayers might have an argument if they accuse Reid of engaging in campaign work on the Senate floor. Such campaigning is illegal, but it sure seems like Reid was giving Obama a political boost during a time when he should have been acting as Senate Majority Leader. And given Reid’s intent to break the law by not passing a budget through the Senate for the fourth year in a row, we know how much he believes the laws of our land apply to him.

The fight over Romney’s tax returns is yet another of the many distractions Obama wants on the table so Americans will care less about the economy, and Reid is clearly willing to play along. It’s unfortunate that Huffington Post chose to publish Reid’s statement to them about the taxes, since Reid’s initial mention of the unsourced accusation on the Senate floor went almost unnoticed. Hopefully conservatives can now repeat what Thiessen and Kelly noted to great effect, and get the attention of politicians and pundits back to debating and passing legitimate budget, foreign policy, and abortion policies.

Note: Thanks to commenter Tomshup for pointing out that I accidentally wrote that Reid accused Romney on the House floor near the top of this post, not the Senate floor. I got all the other mentions right, but flubbed the most important one.

hold your ground Mitt!

anybody that knows how the IRS works would know that they are waiting for Mitt’s tax returns in the mailroom every year. so what if a year or 2 turned out to be a zero (doubtful), they have been examined closely and found to be fully within the law.

It’s not hard to take down. There is a coordinated assault by the left on the Bill of Rights. Harry Reid on the 5th amendment and more than I can count on the 1st amendment.

Beyond that I care nothing about their motivations, just the end result of their actions.

Romney needs to publicly ask Reid to say WHICH ten years he accuses Romney of not paying taxes, then release ONE of those year’s tax returns to the media. This will definitively prove Reid to be a liar, so that further accusations from him will be ignored by the voters.

So when are the Republicans in the Senate going to stand up and at least vote a resolution, just to get it on record, condemning Senile Reidiculous for his boorish, despicable behavior and for campaigning in the Senate chamber? I’m sure the slimestream enablers will ignore this like they ignored Chik-fil-A day. But the one thing they can’t ignore is the hurricane-tornado-earthquake-tsunami that’s heading directly at the Dooms to strike with full fury on Nov 6. Then what’ll the cowardly media do–deny the election outcomes? or just flat-out deny that any elections took place?

It’s no wonder that Harry Reid is gladly slinging this mud. He’s a useful idiot—just won reelection for 6 years and has nothing to worry about until…2016? By then, all this will have blown over.

Reid claimed that Romney hadn’t paid Federal income taxes in 10 years. Romney has already made his 2010 tax return public, which shows that he paid $3,009,766 in Federal income taxes in 2010 – an effective rate of 13.9%.

Here is Mitt Romney’s 2010 tax return:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/documents/romney-2010-tax-return.html

He released his estimated 2011 return, which he filed along with a tax payment of $3,226,623 – an effective rate of 15.4%.

Here is his estimated return that was filed for 2011:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/documents/romney-2011-estimated-1040.html

In 2010, he donated $2,983,974 to charity (13.8% Charity/AGI).

In 2011, he donated $4,020,572 to charity (19.2% Charity/AGI).

Even at 13.9% Romney Pays a Higher Rate than 97% of His Fellow Americans

He is already wrong. Why would anyone believe that he is correct on anything else when he was so demonstrably wrong from the beginning?

It’s between the IRS and the taxpayer. We really don’t need to be seeing years and years of tax forms. It’s none of our business.

Plus, the Democrats don’t seem to be putting themselves up there for all of us to poke through their financials. Why is that? Do you support what seems to be two sets of rules?

Some people on here defend you, but I’m not entirely sure why as you are myopic and disingenuous. To each their own, I suppose.

Connect the “dirty dots”.
1. Harry Reid and the shut down of the Yucca Mountaine Nuke Storage facility. And of some note after it was finished and the money spent.

2. If Yucca Mountain had gone on line and started accepting spent nuke fuel, then the U.S. Goverment would take care of the storage and the power companies no longer would have to foot the bill for that.

3. Once Yucca Mountain Nuke Storage got shut down,, guess what…
The power compaines get paid by the U.S. Goverment (that would be U.S. tax payer) for storage.

4. So, good old dirty Harry Reid used the lie of the GreenPeace loons to hide the inside the beltway con of ConEdison getting a huge pay off.

5. So, the most deadly substances on planet earth are now this moment setting in open water tanks easy targets for terrorist, earth quakes, ect. in urban areas all over the U.S..

6. Worse than a horror movie, it is real, its deadly, and so low life you would think no human and for sure another American would not do such a thing to his fellow countrymen…. but, Harry Reid is a modern day commie thug any thing for money Democrat.

Hmmm, I’ve heard something somewhere about being innocent until proven guilty, besides the fact that not paying taxes is not the same as not owing taxes (ref. our current IRS head, tiny-intellect Tim.)

The goal is to get Romney to release his tax returns.

Reid is lying about Romney not paying any taxes, and he knows it.

But that does not matter. If he gets Romney to release his returns that will be forgotten. The end will justify the means with Dems and the electorate will be distracted by weeks of media reports on 10 years of tax returns.

Tthere is talk that Harry Reids democrat senate hasn’t passed a budget in almost 4 years.

Oh, that is a FACT.

Romney’s tax returns is a sidebar to prevent the Fast and Furious scandal claiming Holder’s job. Holder must go for allowing the murder of an American border agent and hundreds of Mexicans with US supplied guns.

Now that Harry has had his fun, let’s find some dirt on him, and there is plenty available.

Yep, Dingy has his own shady land deals, made with the help of inside information and pork-barrel earmarks.

“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.”

- Senator Harry Reid

You lie!

He paid $3,009,766 in Federal income taxes in 2010.

He paid $3,226,623 in Federal income taxes in 2011.

It’s time to punish this batard.

I think you were being cynical…if so perhaps too much for the average bear (gotta love Yogi). That little smiley face works wonders but quite frankly I don’t know how to do it.

And given Reid’s intent to break the law by not passing a budget through the Senate for the fourth year in a row, we know how much he believes the laws of our land apply to him.

Why is there no penalty for this? What good is a law if there is no enforcement? What is the procedure for charging dingy for this crime?

I don’t know if Romney paid taxes or not, but I do know that when Romney’s dad ran for POTUS he released many years of his taxes probably to avoid such accusations. Romney’s father was wiser than his son, (or had less to hide).

If sons were required to do what their fathers did, then little Ron Reagan wouldn’t be a flaming @#$%^/.

Thank you Harry Reid for momentarily removing the mask which hides the darkness and hideousness within your soul.

I wonder what would happen if all liberals performed a once-a-day mask removal ceremony similar to this?

Would exorcism training centers spring up all over the country?
