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.
Not paying taxes for 10 years . . . that qualifies Mittens to be a Democrat in good standing!!!
These Dems, they’re so damned good at knowing what other people think, aren’t they?
Here’s Harry Reid, he thinks he knows what Mitt Romney’s dead father is thinking about him. Nancy Pelosi thinks that Jews only support Mitt Romney because they’re good in business and they’re just looking for a tax break. And Republicans in general, hate women because they’re less than eager to pay for contraceptive services. They really, really want to see women bleed to death after having been forced to undergo back alley abortions. And then there’s the poor they wish would go away and die any time they want to restrict welfare benefits. And Mexicans, just looking for a better life, why, those dirty Republicans just want to inflict pain upon them by making them stay where they were born instead of letting them come here and enjoy the blessings of a runaway welfare state. Not only would Republicans deny these immigrants health care and education, they even refuse to let them vote.
It’s actually mutual; dementia is suffering from Harry Reid.
Wouldn’t we love to see an audit of Harry Reid’s lobbyist sons’ tax returns? I bet their Dad would be so proud
Rory the candidate with many magic PACs
Lief the happy homeowner
Josh the loser who needed daddy to get him a puling city job
Not exactly, Bishop George Romney used to tithe as required to the Mormons, we don't know how much Bishop Romney gave of his inheritance to the Mormons, but everything that he gives goes directly or indirectly to Mormonism, Tom Cruise is probably in the same situation with his cult.
If you know the details of how Bishop Romney dealt with his inheritance then share them with us.
I'll wager that if Harry's father could see his son now he would wish that he had remained celibate.
Reid just isn’t qualified to personally attack anyone....
Mitt has been working to become president for the last 10 years, except for the part when he was governing Massachusetts as a pro-abortion, anti-gun, pro-homosexual agenda, Obamacare democrat.
I can picture, in my mind’s eye, God doing a double face-palm over having created Harry.
If George Romney was a self-made man, just who did he inherit money from?
George Romney would approve of Mitt Romney.
Mitt was with his father when he stormed out of the 1964 GOP convention in protest of Goldwater and conservative republicans winning the nomination.
Mitt was evading the draft while George ran as the anti-war presidential candidate against Reagan in 1968.
Mitt left the GOP when Reagan won the nomination in 1979, George Romney was a Rockefeller gop-e republican who would be very pleased with his son and his politics and his efforts and successes against the Reagan/Palin wing of the GOP.
If he succeeds in keeping Palin and the tea party out of the 2012 GOP convention, it will be the perfect image of the Romney family of George, Lenore, and Mitt, prevailing and winning payback for the 1964 Goldwater/Reagan convention and their generations of suffering humiliation and defeat at the hands of conservatives.
It was Bishop Mitt who inherited from his father Bishop George.
The Romneys have always been powerful and wealthy, they are royalty within Mormonism and it’s inner circle of wealth and power.
The Romneys became Mormons in England and came here to personally serve the Holy Prophet Joseph Smith with his dozens of wives, in 1842.
What worries me a lot more is that Obama’s father would be proud of his son.
Too bad dueling is illegal.
Harry Reid’s momma brought him up wrong.
Barry Obama’s momma didn’t even bring him up at all.
That’s OK Harry. Every single dead relative of mine going back 6000 years hates the guts of your political party destroying the best country God ever allowed to exist. And Harry since you are currently the Senate leader that hate is boiling right up under your smelly socks.
I’m amazed they’re feeling that fearful of losing they’ve proceeded on to open, blatant character assassination. Must be some seriously frightening internal poll numbers out there.
Oh, by the way, Harry... why are you keeping so quiet about your penchant for little boys? Why not make pedophilia a plank in your party’s platform this year?
Reid doesn’t know who his father is.
At least Romney knows who his “real” father was. Barack’s could be a toss-up between whomever his skank of a mother decided to bed down with for the night.
Why waste my time. If you are really open minded about this you'll do your own research, like I did.
LOL, you just admitted that you don’t know.
Which tells me you haven't checked and have no desire to know.
It isn’t our job at freerepublic to do your research, if you can’t back up your claims, then you can’t.
You don’t know what inheritance he got, what portion, nor how it was dispersed or used.
You would have then been able to come back to FR and rightly criticise WIllard for giving all of it to a school of business management that instructed students in running various government agencies.
Most seriously conservative candidates might find some other place to donate their money.
Just because you don't think there is a hell does not mean there isn't.
As you can see in post 25, we already know that at least some of his inheritance went “directly or indirectly to Mormonism”, but what are your details? How much did he inherit, was it after his mother died? How was the split with his siblings, how much did he give away, of what total received, did any of it go to any charity that isn’t related to his cult of Mormonism?
“”and donated his inheritance to charity.””
Not exactly, Bishop George Romney used to tithe as required to the Mormons, we don’t know how much Bishop [Mitt]Romney gave of his inheritance to the Mormons, but everything that he gives goes directly or indirectly to Mormonism, Tom Cruise is probably in the same situation with his cult.
If you know the details of how Bishop Romney dealt with his inheritance then share them with us.

Other than to suggest a remedial reading at your local JC, I can’t help you.
