GOP to Reid: You're next
politico.com ^ | 5 Aug 12 | By CHARLES MAHTESIAN

Posted on 08/05/2012 11:00:22 AM PDT by elhombrelibre

The Sunday news shows featured a rare spectacle that at once revealed the decline of civility in Washington and the depth of GOP outrage over Harry Reid’s unproven claim that Mitt Romney didn’t pay income taxes for an entire decade: two of the nation’s top GOP officials flat out called the Senate majority leader a liar.

That’s no ordinary criticism in official Washington.

There are plenty of other ways that pols use to call out their partisan rivals on their statements. Reid’s GOP counterpart, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, for one, has already said Reid’s charge is “beneath the dignity” of his office.

I will never forgive the people of Nevada for sending that little sniveling piece of crap back to Washington.

If there is a politician I would like to slug, it would be him. You know he wouldn't swing back at you.

I suspect that very shortly Alex Jones will start looking into the rumors of pagan orgies and satanic worship at Obama’s gay bathhouse when Reid was there. There have even been stories of cannibalism and eating dogs.

Now, though, the GOP has indicated it plans to make it personal. Between the loaded language and Priebus’s pointed reference to Reid’s Ritz-Carlton abode – an issue that surfaced in the senator’s 2010 re-election campaign – Republicans just sent the clearest signal to Reid yet that he needs to either produce the evidence, stand down or prepare for an extended public discussion of his own finances.

LOL...right our gutless, feckless, craven weasels in the GOPe are actually going after Reid...NOT HOLDING MY BREATH...

More like "Harry stop being so mean...don't you know it's beneath your esteemed position to get into gutter politics"

Romney should call a press conference and lay out every single criminal activity Reid has ever been associated with and not take a single question from the media and leave them hanging...by telling them when they are done getting answers from Reid about his "alleged criminal activity" he will be glad to take questions and walk out of the room

Neither he nor his boss deserve a slug. That's for men. I would, however, bitch-slap them both.

If Reid is playing with Obama, he IS playing with a little boy.

Now all we need is someone with enough balls to do it.

That sure as hell won't happen as long as Obama is President (but don't tell the "Anyone But Romney-bots" around here ....)

Our leadership should be asking Obama to disavow Reid.

Asking? Yeah, that'll do the trick alright. Be a bunch of milquetoast panty-waste's and "ask."

How about the first Republican .. or hell Conservative with the BALLS to get on TV and say "Harry Reid is a damn' liar, period" gets a $500 campaign contribution from me.

Wow, what a weak kneed statement. If McConnell would just call him the scum sucking dirt bag POS that he really is, I would pay more attention to McConnell.

Didn’t I read somewhere that Reid used to be a boxer? Besides, punching him would be better than he deserves. He ought to be ex-communicated from the human race. An evil man if ever there was one.

Republicans had better realize that we are in the midst of a civil war. No guns and bullets yet, but in all other ways, the war has begun.

Both Reid and Romney are LDS members and you know the Mormon bigwigs in Salt Lake City are doing everything they can to get help get Mitt into the WH, <>I wonder if the SLC church leaders have had any contact with Reid to tell hit to knock it off, and if so, what did Reid say back to them?

I don’t care if he was a boxer or not. What he has helped do to my country is unacceptable and he should face the music for it. You know he is a CROOK, thats for sure. I want someone to go to the floor and start pointing out all of the land deals and other illegal stuff Dirty Harry has been involved with. Saxby and Johnny are you paying attention?

I read or heard somewhere, I don’t recall exactly where that Obama and Reid are having a homosexual affair. And...that the both of them like playing with little boys.

I got a call that this is true, and it came from a reliable source.

So, with all these sources, yours and mine, we can now state that the "word is out".

“Now all we need is someone with enough balls to do it.”

And THAT my FRiend is the problem.

All “we” have is the Republicans and so far they haven’t even hinted at having any balls at all.

Ried has "unknown" sources telling him Romey doesn't pay taxes. Others have "unknown " source's outing Reid as a child predator.

They're both just as believable. Romney must prove he pays taxes, and in all fairness, Reid has to prove he doesn't rape young boys.

I think not only is it fair - it's bipartisan.

"“As far as Harry Reid is concerned, listen, you might want to go down that road, I'm not going to respond to a dirty liar, who hasn't filed a single page of tax returns himself,” Priebus said on ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos. "

Not just a liar.... but a "Dirty Liar". That is a huge difference. It is like the difference between a "dare" and a "triple dog dare".... Priebus really stepped it up!

I’m doing all I can to get this “reported” homosexual affair out to the public. Thank you for your help. Now if only the msm will do their job and report it, I have met their threshold for proof.
