Howard Dean: Yeah, Harry Reid has some credibility issues now, huh?

posted at 4:01 pm on September 22, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

The admission only comes after about a full minute of teeth-pulling from CNBC’s Joe Kernen, and only after Howard Dean tries to keep impugning Mitt Romney’s integrity, but even the former DNC chair has to grudgingly acknowledge that the game is all but up for Harry Reid and his baseless, reckless charges of tax fraud. Dean halfheartedly trots out the complaint that Romney lied by overpaying his taxes, but Kernen laughs him into a rather lengthy silence (transcript by The Daily Caller):

KERNEN: Governor, my first question is you’ve seen these now — my very first question, I’m going to ask this a lot tonight. You’ve got a guy in society who paid $2 million in taxes, gave $4 million to charity. Should we, A) wish we had more guys like this in society or B) wish we didn’t have any guys like this in society? Is he a net positive if you pay $2 million in taxes? His overall rate on what he either gave to charity or taxes is about 40 percent. Governor, good or bad?

DEAN: That’s not the issue. The issue is how truthful is he and the problem is he did go back and manipulate the tax rate list in the past year. And NBC ran a clip on the evening news tonight of him saying — I don’t know, last July or something…

KERNEN: Is that right? I know where you’re going.

DEAN: …’if I paid more taxes than I should have I’m not qualified to be president.’ Well, he did.

KERNEN: So he paid more, so you guys are going to now nail him on paying more taxes than he had to when he just stays within the law and pays what he’s supposed to pay by law? You don’t like that and you accuse him of evasion and paying no taxes; now that he paid less than he had to, now you’ll get him on that? That’s a gotcha moment, Howard?

DEAN: The issue is his credibility. He should have showed the tax returns.

KERNEN: How’s Harry Reid’s credibility at this point?

DEAN: I’d say it’s in some trouble, but I’d say Mitt’s not out of the woods yet.

Later, Kernen teases Dean by noting his lengthy silence, and Dean responds by saying that the Obama campaign doesn’t begrudge Romney his wealth — and James Pethokoukis can’t restrain his laughter, saying the campaign is all about begrudging wealth, especially Romney’s.  Stick around for American Crossroads’ Jonathan Collegio, who wins the argument at the end of this excerpt by pointing out the political news of the day on the two major occasions when Team Obama attacked Romney for his tax returns.

I’ve said this before, I honestly believe Mitt is first and foremost a decent man. When he was my Governor he did represent the people that elected him. The people here actually wanted a mandated healthcare law, and the Statehouse would have passed one with or without a veto. Now it wasn’t what I wanted, but I do believe Mitt did his best to keep this law “under control”. Unsurprizingly Beacon Hill twisted the law to their liking afterward.
I guess my point is that Romney will represent those that elected him. Maybe not as the perfect conservative that many are searching for, but if Obama can evolve on issues I don’t see why Mitt can’t as well.
I been called a Mittbot for the heretical thoughts on this site and I’d gladly wear that banner if means get Obama out.

Oh and yes please keep the political ads out of my football.

Mitt’s tax returns show the difference between liberal and non-liberal philosophy.

Liberals know they are the greedy, cheap, sons of bitches that WON’T give of their own money, so gov’t needs to provide by taking from everyone else.

I went to some of my favourite places and dropped well-placed bombs on the trolls that had turned themselves blue over the last several months waiting to get their hands on Romney’s returns. I am a total shytstirrer. Yesterday was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. The idiots were left to complain that he paid more taxes than he should and to defend some millionaires and billionaires that had to pay a higher rate on ordinary income. How sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeet is that?

Oh, and the conspiracy theories! PWC lied. Reid, “He manipulated everything! He’s hiding something! I know! My ‘source’ wouldn’t lie to me!” Hopefully, Harry gets some help and medication for his “sources” a/k/a voices in his head soon.

OTTO on September 22, 2012 at 5:04 PM

Agree with you regarding the free speech issue. However, that flag is a product from the campaign from one of the candidates for president of the US. The underlying theme of that flag places the candidate at a level equal to the country itself and is reminiscent of something that at third world dictator would do, not a candidate for President of the United States. It’s not so much manipulating a symbol that represents the country as it is placing the personality of the candidate at a par with that symbol. Smacks of cult of personality. It is elevating the person to the level of the country rather than, as the office of president was intended, making the person a servant of the people of the country.

It’s fine if one of his supporters did this in appreciation of the candidate. The supporter should have been thanked and this placed among the personal effects of the candidate. Turning it into a piece of campaign swag is evidence of support of this notion of candidate over country.

I’m not articulating this as well as I would like, but this is the equivalent of what they did in 2008 by manipulating the Presidential Seal to represent candidate Obama.

When he came down in the morning, he was told that our Ambassador and three other heroes had been murdered. Then, his administration went before the country and the world and lied for 9 days. They blamed it on free speech. They not only LIED FOR AL QAEDA, they condemned the Constitution, ensured that the level of exposure the youtube clip would have went into the stratosphere, and put the lives of 7 Coptic Christians from Egypt and their families, along with Pastor Terry Jones, his family and congregation, in danger. They have been charged with blasphemy, of which they will be convicted in absentia and likely receive death sentences, which some extremists may attempt to carry out on US soil.

Obama said that Bush was the problem in the ME. If that’s true, then, perhaps, he can explain why hostility has been growing across the Muslim World against the US since he has been in office…and, especially since he made the US put on its weak arse outfit.

How-Weird Dean has the same dipsh*t grin that Joe BiteMe has: The put-in-his-thumb-and-pulled-out-a-plum look of self-congratulation for a supposedly clever bon mot.

But what Obama and the Dems have done this time is to make it a caricature, a cartoonish image done as if by a five-year-old.

Liam on September 22, 2012 at 5:29 PM

That plus the addition of the Obama personality in the star field makes it even worse.

There is no such thing as a low information voter. There are only responsible, well informed citizens and the willfully ignorant.

AZfederalist on September 22, 2012 at 5:46 PM

Creepy how the left would do that, isn’t it–that cult of personality?

What I’m beginning to wonder from among the Left is why do they need a magnet to which to be drawn, a person to which they gather like to a campfire and sing Kumbaya?

Maybe I’m missing something. When it comes to liberals, I’m glad I am.

Politically, the Constitution is sufficient for me.

Say what level of self-immolation would we see if a hundred or so demonstrations went off across America burning the Obamaflag?
Maybe the night before the great debate….

Don L on September 22, 2012 at 5:34 PM

I’ll be happy to burn some if I don’t have to pay for them.

Reid is Mormon, how much are his charitable deductions. Is is about the same percentage as Romney’s? Probably not. He knows that and doesn’t want to be humiliated.

I’m not articulating this as well as I would like, but this is the equivalent of what they did in 2008 by manipulating the Presidential Seal to represent candidate Obama.

AZfederalist on September 22, 2012 at 5:23 PM

Articulated perfectly, my feelings exactly.

OTTO on September 22, 2012 at 5:29 PM

Agreed. They have desecrated the American flag as far as I’m concerned. The mark of one man belongs nowhere on the symbol of our country.

lynncgb on September 22, 2012 at 6:08 PM

Howard Dean: Yeah YEAAAARRRRGGH!!!! Harry Reid has some credibility issues now, huh?

FIFY, Ed! :P

Benedict Nelson on September 22, 2012 at 6:26 PM

Reid on Romney deciding to release 2011 returns:

“He’s hiding something. He’s hiding something! It is so evident he’s hiding something!”

 

Somewhere out there in the vast expanse of the Nevada desert amongst the dirt, the rocks, the cacti and the creepy-crawly things that slither across the earth in the night — a sad Cowboy poet rhymes a woeful song — while he pokes a Harry Reid with a stick.

No need to cook dinner tonight, I’m full.

And it was very tasty indeed.

I hate the double standard that Dean et al. are permitted to apply to this race. I cannot stand it. Every day a new outrage.

bobcalco on September 22, 2012 at 8:13 PM

DEAN: …’if I paid more taxes than I should have I’m not qualified to be president.’ Well, he did.

And Obama said this.
