Posted on 08/02/2012 5:19:03 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Mitt Romney took a shot back at Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this afternoon, responding to Reid's apparently baseless claim that the Republican presidential candidate did not pay income taxes for 10 years.
"It's time for Harry to put up or shut up," Romney said on Sean Hannity's radio show this afternoon. "Harry's going to have to describe who it is he spoke with, because of course that's totally and completely wrong. It's untrue, dishonest, and inaccurate. It's wrong."
Reid, who doubled down on his claims about Romney's taxes on the Senate floor today, said Tuesday that he learned about Romney's tax returns from an unnamed source at Bain Capital. But Romney suspects that his opponent had a hand in starting the rumor — an equally baseless accusation.
"I'm looking forward to having Harry reveal his sources," Romney told Hannity. "We'll probably find out its the White House. Look, the Obama campaign is gonna do everything in its power to try and talk about anything besides the president's record."

Harry Reid is a despicable, corrupt turd of a man.
That he is the head of the Senate of the United States is a travesty that has to be corrected on November 6th.
History will show that Reid,Pelosi,Obama and Biden were the worst, most corrupt group of leaders this country has ever seen.
When did we make it legal for commie ‘RATS like Stinky Harry to campaign on the floor of the Senate? Is that legal?
Romney is a terrible candidate, but the democrats, like the Chick-fil-a protesters are overplaying their hand.
If Reid has some inside information about Romney’s income tax returns, then he just committed a felony by revealing it.
I suspect he just made the whole thing up.
Romney’s got balls finally and he’s going to need them in the days, months, years to come.
Harry POS Reid ALERT! Wake up, Mittens. Call it like it is...TACTICS OF TOTALITARIANS.
(don’t be a 10th amendment totalitarian sucking the lifeblood out of the rest of the country for a debt-ridden state’s failures)
“Me thinks he doth protest too much.”
Harry.....what are you distracting everyone from?
Pretty much everything zero has done, and everything he (ried) has not.
Hairy doesn’t release his nor his family’s tax returns.
Considering Harry’s character, I believe that patience will tell the tale of corruption in Nevada by the hand of Harry.
All the “green” legislation and paybacks only needs to come to the light of day even in a marginal manner....then Harry’s toast....and not of the town.
I volunteer tar and many feather pillows, and I am not even from NV.
His charges are baseless and untrue, Fehrnstrom told the same radio station. [T]his reminds me of the McCarthy hearings back in the 1950s, and it was another son from Massachusetts then, Joseph Welch, who finally asked the question that should be asked of Harry Reid, which is: Have you no sense of decency, sir? "
NOW, the hard question that makes this particular story of VITAL concern to Conservatives ~ why does Romney have a guy working that close to him (and Fehrnstrom is really close) who believes Senator Joe McCarthy told lies? After the fall of the Soviet Union the Verona papers revealed, lo and behold, Joe McCarthy had the names, the numbers and was quite truthful.
That we can have someone like this idiot Communist Criminal Coverup artist that close to a potential president is really disturbing.
I think Eric needs a new job somewhere else, or maybe we can ask Romney what he thinks about McCarthy and commies.
Harry Reid is the worst. I don’t like Obama, Pelosi, DW or any of the other Dem leadership but Harry Reid I especially dislike. Shame on those 3rd part purists who put him in power in 1998.
Romney should get Reid kicked out of the Mormon church!
Harry can say what he wants all day long and into the night as long as he keeps it to the precincts of Congress ~
Did Romney as for Reid’s tax returns? Maybe he should.
Ya! Like getting congress the approval of the release of acres upon acres of BLM land for development around Vegas. Then, when the developers sold the lots, he got a portion of the proceeds.
