Oh no, the story is real..! I can’t recall where I read it nor can I recall who wrote it but the story is real. Its just as real as Reid’s story of Romney’s taxes. I can’t recall the author’s name but they were credible.

Something extremely bizarre with Reid and Pelosi. You have the typical asshats like Grayson and Weiner who get off on hearing themselves scream. Marxists like Maxine Waters and Bernie Sanders. Effete, European wannabes like John Kerry and Al Franken. But Pelosi and Reid seem more like droids than humans and nobody else comes close to their “creepiness” factor. Perhaps extraterrestrials? No surprise they have both been tabbed to lead their party.

Are you insinuating this story is just a rumor?

It's no more rumor than any other "fact" in the MSM. Therefore, fair game to be reported, touted, flagged, bannered, highlighted, Yelled and shouted loudly across the land.

IF this were a Republican making the charge with no names or evidence, it would make the media attacks on “truthers” look tame by comparison.

There are two Americas, one that reads the Lamestream Media Pravada-Presstitute Reports, and one that knows better.

How can one be beneath the “dignity” of the office when slime like reed don’t have “dignity” to begin with? Hub??

Not YOU elhombrelibre... just asking McConnell and all the others that respond to pond scum like this as being “frustrated or saddened, or disappointed to the point whwere I want to throw upo.

Take off the darn gloves and go after him the way he has gone after others. STOP turning the other cheek. It doesn’t work... just ask George W. Bush. I don’t care for them ... I care for us and our country. They seem to want to make this whole race about the candidates and on upmanship. It’ NOT about them it is doiing what is right for this country.

Pardon my spelliong but at this point don’t care...
I am sick and tired of talking about clothing and hair styles and how much money is spent for clothes etc... I don’t care what their wives or them eat, drink or enjoy. I just want to hear that America will get their jobs back and will follow their dreams to achieve success in anyt way, shape of form they see fit. Everyone else shoiuld just BUTT OUT!

MANY people are aware of, or past victims, of Reid’s criminal enterprise.
I have spoken directly with several.

When I have pled for them to come forward the response was universal, fear for their lives, and the lives of their family members.

It seems Reid is still mob connected, has been for a very long time.

Maybe after his next stroke, and subsequent retirement, the real stories will begin to come out.
I look forward to his inditement and disgrace.

Here’s a hint, someone needs to look into his ownership of mines and mining shares.
He went to DC as a “Reformer” (Enemy) of mining, now he’s a huge owner.
Also look closer at his Indian affairs connections, what happened with water rights there.

“Yes, if the GOP had worked a bit harder in Nevada in 2010, there would be no Harry Reid in the Senate today.

Sharon Angle (was that her name?) really did have a chance...I read an article a year or so ago about the last half week of that campaign.

We (the GOP) really did BLOW IT. Just like we (the GOP) let Joe Miller down in Alaska and now that liberal Murkowski is still in office.

Delaware was another blown opportunity, though it was a much more “uphill battle” than the other two.

Nevertheless, we won’t win every battle...but we’ll win many. We win wars in incremental bits of time called “battles”, and not every battle is a victory.

Don’t give up.”
*****************

This ALL falls at the feet of Rove! He refused to support anyone that HE didn’t hand pick, had true conservative morals, could make honest decisions on their own....WITHOUT the moderates approval.

Exactly why he would NOT back/support Newt! Newt went off their reservation far too often and Rove and his group were afraid they wouldn’t be able to control him...just like when Newt was speaker.

The people of Nevada did not send him back, the Unions of Las Vegas and Reno did!
The Unions actually got polling places set up inside the casinos so their members could vote without having to leave work, where the unions could supervise their vote.

He lost in 15 of 17 counties.

This is what happens when the voters of one overwhelmingly large uber-liberal city can override the will of the majority of the state.

Not unique to Nevada either!

It is beyond the realm of possibilities that someone could go 10 years with the money Mitt Romney has without paying taxes. That in itself shows Harry Reid to be a liar. His insistance that somebody told him that is grade school stuff. Hold his feet to the fire!

Yet another weekend wasted on media distractions while the unemployment numbers rise, the workforce numbers drop, investment money looks for greener pastures.. the media is chasing it’s tail, going after a nonexistent tax issue while Obama blames a guy that hasn’t been in control for almost four years.

The democrats are busy attacking fried chicken sandwiches and birth control policies and the math problem that is in front of us while the country burns.

Not voting the Rino’s out at the same time is just plain Hypocrisy. It also means that conservatives no longer stand for anything that people can cheer about voting for. So Conservatives lose with that strategy. They always have.

Then there is the issue that time is up. The USA is teetering on the edge of the abyss right at this very moment. Vote all the people in that you want. Nothing good will come of it as long as your leader is working for the other side.

There is one fact that I've not as yet seen much written about: Harry Reid is a Mormon; Mitt Romney is a Mormon.

Any LDS out there, what is the church position on claiming things about your fellow Mormons, without a speck of proof???

I know that believers are not supposed to speak ill of another believer (nothing at all about making up claims without a bit of truth) we are supposed to take any grievance of another believer first to that brother in private, next, going then with some other believers to take up the grievance again but never, ever go out in public with spurious claims against another.

Is this the same in the LDS church, can one make public claims about being either a tax cheat or other, which is tantamount to a criminal act or at least skirting the law? Christians aren't even supposed to stoop to gossip about another and presumably both Harry and Mitt are at the very least, in the Melchizedek Priesthood, are charged with greater responsibility of morality, are they not.

“Reid’s as crooked as they come. “

Eric Holder is Attorney General. I doubt Reid loses any sleep worrying about a criminal investigation of his activities.

Remember the Bush Justice Department had no time to investigate Reid or Nancy Pelosi’s husband’s sweet land deals involving government land in San Francisco. Jack Abramoff, a Republican, was the big corruption trial during the Bush Administration.

“Reid’s GOP counterpart, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, for one, has already said Reid’s charge is “beneath the dignity” of his office.”

It seems Mitch to be under the mistaken impression that there is any dignity left in the Senate. All that is left in the U.S. Senate arrogance & power lust.

Harry Reid has been “mobbed up” for decades. I know because a little birdie told me so. Now it is up to Dingy Harry to prove that he is not.

That’s how it works in his authoritarian world - you have to prove your innocence as challenged by an anonymous telephone call.

Well Harry, you piece of shit, THE PHONE CALL JUST CAME IN.

Produce your records, including income taxes, donations, party pals, and any visits to the Mustang Ranch (photos are welcome).

“Why are we hitting on Reid. Obama is in charge of his campaign. Reid’s words are approved by Obama and Obama is the liar. Our leadership should be asking Obama to disavow Reid.”

I humbly submit you are wrong. What I would do now is run ads that tie Obama to Reid’s comments. Then force Obama to say something.

And with Reid’s son fronting on the China solar energy project, I would tie Obama and Solyndra to that.

Now Obama has to do something.
