Harry Reid claims Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years
There seems to be a sense of desperation setting in on the left as they realize Mitt Romney has a decent chance to beat Barack Obama in November. You can see the desperation in their actions–from calling Mitt Romney a felon without proof to claiming that Mitt Romney’s Poland trip was racially motivated to appeal to white voters–and as they continue to get more desperate there is no telling how low they will stoop.
As if calling Mitt Romney a felon with no evidence to back it up wasn’t low enough, Harry Reid has lowered the bar yet again in this little game of political limbo by claiming he heard a rumor that Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has what he says is an informed explanation for why Mitt Romney refuses to release additional tax returns. According a Bain investor, Reid charged, Romney didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years.
Surely if Harry Reid is going to put Mitt Romney in the class of Timothy Geithner and call the man a tax cheat he must have proof. Right?
“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,”
Wrong! Harry Reid has no proof to back up his claims, just the word of some anonymous dude who supposedly called him and said something to the effect of “pssst, Harry, just so you know, Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years,” and he decided to run with it. Or he made it up and there was no such call in the first place.
This parallels the Romney must be a felon story in that the left is claiming he is guilty and asking Mitt Romney to prove he is innocent, when a person is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. This is being done for one reason, and one reason alone; to put Mitt Romney on the defensive and force him to talk about himself rather than Barack Obama’s abysmal record and I suppose I can understand the motivation behind this while not agreeing with the tactics.
There has to be a reason why the Democrats are getting more desperate by the day and I am starting to get the feeling that Barack Obama’s internal polling paints quite a different picture from the poll numbers the mainstream media is force feeding the American people on a daily basis.
