Harry Reid: 'Romney's Poor Father Must Be So Embarrassed About His Son' Michael Warren July 31, 2012 4:19 PM
Harry Reid unloads on Mitt Romney to the Huffington Post:
"His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son," Reid said, in reference to George Romney's standard-setting decision to turn over 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president in the late 1960s.
Saying he had "no problem with somebody being really, really wealthy," Reid sat up in his chair a bit before stirring the pot further. A month or so ago, he said, a person who had invested with Bain Capital called his office.
Romney's father, former Michigan governor and 1968 presidential candidate George Romney, died in 1995.
Reid, the Senate majority leader, also told HuffPo that he had heard Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years. Reid said a former Bain Capital investor, whom Reid didn't name, was the source of this information, although the Nevada Democrat added he wasn't "certain" that charge was true.
"Harry, he didn't pay any taxes for 10 years," Reid recounted the person as saying.
"He didn't pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that's true? Well, I'm not certain," said Reid. "But obviously he can't release those tax returns. How would it look?
"You guys have said his wealth is $250 million," Reid went on. "Not a chance in the world. It's a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty well if you don't pay taxes for 10 years when you're making millions and millions of dollars."
Did your dad ever render his opinion about the nickname the Las Vegas mob gave you, Mr Cleanface?
First Mitt is a felon and now he hasn’t paid his taxes in 10 years.
This country deserves what it gets. I’m done.
harry reid’s father was a drunk and a wife beater.
Tax Return Hypocrisy: Pelosi, Reid Won’t Release Their Filings
Mark Levin says Harry Reid is suffering from Dementia.
Bishop gets Rooked by Bishop...
Memo to Romney. Don’t fault them for warning how they are going to come at you. I’ll bet anything Romney didn’t pay personal tax for whatever reason, and they will release this when the time comes.
You can be sure they illegally have looked at his tax returns, they just haven’t decided to release them yet. Because it will be illegal, they will wait till the last minute when there isn’t time for it to sink in that THEY broke the law by invading someone’s tax returns.
I’m telling you, these idiotic rats, and their presstitutes, are doing everything they can to make me like Romney! I really don’t want to, but they are going to make me!!
Romney spent a number of years working without salary, and donated his inheritance to charity. So Reid might be partially right, he’s just not telling the whole story.
Mark Levin says Harry Reid suffers from dementia!
I had not heard that — but it makes sense when you consider the demented comments pouring from his sinister lips.
harry reids dad was a drunk and a wife beater.
his father was doing life in a Mexican prison.
Pathetic? This is disgusting! What a low worm.
I don’t care for mitt but he should call Reid out
over this. what’s next? attacking his grandmother?
I tell you this admnistration is crapping in their
pants at the thought of being out of power.
Harry Reid’s mother was a drunk and a husband beater.
I heard back in 2000 that Reid was caught soliciting a underage congressional male Page over the phone.
mitt can attain an affidavit from the IRS, stating that all taxes are paid in full... and then sue this evil MF’er for every illegal penny that he has.
If’s Romney’s father is embarrassed Reid’s father must be suicidal!!
How the hell did Dingy Harry win in Nevada..Id like to know, the Best Buy gift cards that his campaign gave voters to vote for him, were they worth it
Like “the war is lost” Senator from Circus-Circus has so much room to be channeling the elder Romney.
I would rather listen to Obama for ten minutes than Reid for five. He is the scum or the earth.
Reid is playing games.
