Earlier this week, Harry Reid revealed why Mitt Romney is refusing to release more tax returns: He didn't pay taxes for an entire decade! It almost sounds too crazy to be true, and in fact, Reid is "not certain" that it isn't a total lie. However, he is sure of one thing: "I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination," Reid told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. "I have had a number of people tell me that." So we aren't talking about just one anonymous Bain investor, but several people who have seemingly only shared this story with Reid.
In an interview with Nevada reporters on Wednesday, Reid refused to name his sources or back down on his accusation. "I don't think the burden should be on me," he said. "The burden should be on him. He's the one I've alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn't he release his tax returns?"
A Romney spokesman said Reid's accusation is proof that the Obama campaign will do anything to distract from his economic record, "no matter how baseless, unfounded or demonstrably false their attacks are." Of course, the Romney campaign didn't actually offer new evidence to demonstrate that the claim is untrue.
According to Reid, it's the media's job to get to the bottom of this. "What if he has paid no taxes, like I am saying he hasn't," Reid said. "What if he has all these moneys as we already know ... in the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, Swiss banks. I mean, gee whiz, rather than ask me why I should do this, that is a story you should be writing." Looking into Romney's finances? Reporters must be kicking themselves for not thinking of that sooner.
And neither is his 6 foot friend named Harvey.
The Democrats really do want to self immolate, don't they? Because of his wealth and investments, Mitt's tax returns will be as thick as bibles. But nothing fundamentally shocking or surprising ought to be there. Mitt certainly chips in 10% and maybe more to the LDS, that's his religion. Which may also be why the LDS isn't giving him a lot of grief for his less-than-clean-living mores.
He has 1972 documents written with Microsoft Word.
The little creep, Stinky Harry, seems to have that old, guilty until proven innocent mindset that the communists and Nazis were so famous for. Romney needs to stand his ground and tell Stinky Harry to kiss is @$$. That’s what the Kenyan would do and it always works for him.
If Romney did carry back losses he could have gotten a HUGE tax refund for 2004, 2005 and 2006.
Now none of this is unlawful, but remember the reaction when folks discovered the corrupt multi-billion dollar General Electric Corporation paid no taxe?
Romney knows to a degree he's able to feel any emotion that if he reveals these things he will lose.
Frankly, I think the guy's going to lose anyway ~ so why does he want to keep pretending.
Let me guess - was one of those people named "Lucy Ramirez", by any chance?
Reid, the alleged pedophile/child rapist, now has imaginary phone friends.
How about a trade. Reid’s and Pelosi’s last ten years for Romney’s.
And neither is the person who said Reid was a pedophile. Why isn’t Reid denying that? So far he and the MSM are mum.
Defecate or get off the pot, to paraphrase my slightly alcoholic grandfather.
word on the street is Harry is a pedophile...dont know if true but he has some explaining to do..
I heard Harry keeps a Filipino pool boy in his basement.
Or perhaps “...you can have my tax returns when the American people get the Fast and Furious documents...”.
Harry Reid molests dead horses
The little voice in his head is real.
If the democrats are going to give a pass to all those in the Oboma administration who aren't paying their taxes, why should I care about Romney? Aren't they trying to call the kettle black?
Let's get back to the economy. That's the most important issue of the day.
