Romney to Reid: 'Put up or shut up'
CNN ^ | August 2nd, 2012 | Dana Davidsen and Ashley Killough

Posted on 08/02/2012 4:26:49 PM PDT by Brown Deer

(CNN) - Mitt Romney on Thursday pushed back against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's allegations that the presumptive GOP nominee has not been paying his taxes.

"It's time for Harry to put up or shut up," Romney said on Sean Hannity's radio show.

Reid stood by the allegations on Thursday while speaking on the Senate floor.

"The word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years," he said. "Let him prove he has paid taxes because he hasn't."

Romney has made public the full 2010 tax return and an estimate for 2011, with a pledge to release the full year once it's complete. He filed an extension for an October deadline.

I understand Harry Reid's political career has benefitted from his connections to the Las Vegas mob. And unlike Mr Cleanface's recent charges, these can be substantiated.

Lets see him defend that.

“The word’s out that he hasn’t paid any taxes for 10 years,” he said. “Let him prove he has paid taxes because he hasn’t.”

Reid is an asswad.
It is the law that you file a tax return. Not necessarily that you pay taxes. 100’ of thousands of citizens never pay one cent in taxes. Then also Romney doesn’t have to prove anything to Reid who is not the IRS..

Romney should use the vetting defense. Hey, if the FBI and IRS vetted Obama, they would vetted me also.

Then let Obamas campaign deal with that black eye.

WhoreHouse Harry whose mother worked at a brothel lovely man
Harry Reid from good stock. Actually I think the One is putting Harry up to these attacks against Romeny I bet they threatened Harry or his family. Remember that little accident his wife was involved in about 2 years back? Every since that point Mr.Reid has been a real a hole

A citizen’s IRS papers are supposedly confidential, not to be released to anyone.

This, however, is the Obama administration and Justice is run by Holder and Treasury by Geithner. Treasury oversees the IRS.

Both men are Obama stooges.

Would Geithner illegally review Romney’s records and would Holder protect him in that?

What does everyone think? Would they find it too dangerous or obvious? What would they leak and what would they not leak?

Don’t Reed/Romney have a quorum of 70 or some such that they can take this unseemly squabble to?

Given the corruption in the executive branch, I have little doubt that the Obama campaign already has Romney’s returns. Romney may be trying to force them to leak the returns in a way that allows him to charge the O campaign has broken the law here.

Well, Sen. Reid is on record stating that paying taxes is “voluntary”, anyway. So what’s the problem?

Seriously though, the esteemed Gentleman from Nevada apparently needs a refresher course on the finer points of debate, seein’s how he is a member of “the world’s most deliberative body.”

The burden of proof always rests on the one making the claim. Sen. Reid therefore, needs to prove it, albeit disclosing tax information is apparently totally illegal.

Taking his diatribe onto the floor of the U.S. Senate? The truth is, Americans deserve better, or at least most of us do, for example, how about oh, say, a BUDGET? How long has that been, IN THREE YEARS??

The answer to all this is simple, Romney needs to File A Formal Complaint with the FBI and the IRS about this Blatant Felony that Senator Reid is taking part in. Furthermore since Senator Reid should know that it is a Felony being committed by his source, is he not also Guilty of Misprison of a Felony??

Reid’s lying and he knows it. All we need to know is he said it on the Senate floor. You can lie all day on the Senate floor and not commit a crime. Many do.

As soon as Reid repeats those allegations off the Senate floor then you can take him seriously because then his lies are actionable.

Now THAT makes more sense than anything I’ve heard lately. Equally explains how Reid & Family have acquired so much, so quickly, for so little effort.

Dirty Harry Reid: The Mafia's "Mr. Clean Face" on the Nevada Gaming Commission

Reid is so mobbed up that he's a walking, talking blackmail machine. Axlerod and Rhambo could order him to tar and feather himself and walk naked down Pennsylvania Ave and he would do so instantly.

Read Freeper Fedora's excellent investigative thread to understand this human slimeball, and why he is willing to be a tool: he has NO CHOICE.
