Skip to comments.Harry Reid calmly responds to Romney’s tax release: “He’s hiding something. He’s hiding something!”

Reids original claim, of course, wasnt that Romney was hiding something but that a Bain investor had told him Romney hadnt paid income tax at all for 10 years. We found out a few hours ago that thats not true if your 10-year window includes 2011, and if you believe PricewaterhouseCoopers, its not true for the period from 1990-2009, when he paid an average annual effective rate of 20.2 percent.
Time for an apology, or time to move the goalposts? Longtime Reid-watchers know the answer. From a Las Vegas Sun reporter:

What a pathetic pussy this pantywaist reed is.
Harry Reid is also a Mormon. Why can’t Harry Reid say anything nice about a Republican Mormon?
Sue him, Mitt. I might suggest suing Harry a week before the election.
I think I would rather see how Hitler reacts.
Harry Reid is so full of it that he really should drop some Obamas off at the pool - then maybe he’d get rid of that sour puss face.
Now is the time for Harry Reid to either produce his source , who says Mitt didnt pay any taxes , or , Harry release his own tax report.
Time to put up /or/ apologize !
And to show that he is a fair politician , Harry should release his own documents.
Did anyone expect any other reaction form Dingy Harry?
The Grim Reaper follows this little prick everywhere he goes just biding his time.
Romney should ask Reid to resign when he wins the election because as POTUS he will not be able to work with a liar..who slanders innocent people
Romney should make a HUGE deal out of Reid slandering him...
Such a big deal the press actually might ask Reid a tough question....
agreed. one who lives in glass house should not throw stones.
This is weird. I wonder how Harry Reid would behave toward Mitt if they met at a church function?
He is the type of politician who would hug Romney to his face and stab him in the back ten minutes later.
I’m curious whether Two-Faced Dingy Harry opposed tax-cheating Timmy Geithner for Secretary of the Treasury. This of course is a rhetorical question.
(For those of you in Rio Linda, a rhetorical question is one that does not need to be answered).
Harry Reid, even more than the now failing regime of the Current Occupant of the Oval Office, should be the face ALL Republicans for Federal level elective positions are running against.
Just as George W. Bush was the person that was the springboard used by the Democrats at every level in their drive from 2006 on to take and hold the reins of Congress and the White Hut.
“It’s Harry Reid’s fault!” should be announced and recited at every level, at every press conference, at every election rally, and in every debate between incumbent and challenger from now to election.
Is this demonization? Well, who deserves it more?
"You've got to believe me!"
I agree with you 100%!
No mention that most of his income was capital gains, money he already had paid taxes on being taxed again
This, from a child molestor?
Like I say, I find that weird. Is he active in his church, as Romney seems to be?
I’m more interested in Reid’s FBI files than I am in Romney’s tax returns.
Maybe Romney could offer Reid a deal. *smirk*
Maybe Reid pretends to be a good Mormon. In
Maybe Reid pretends to be a good Mormon. In
Don’t they call this projection? Harry Reid knows he has lied and cheated on his own taxes thru the years so he just knows Romney has to be hiding something.
When you respond to or appear in public with somebody like that, all you do is lend them credibility.
Romney won’t have to fire him.
I’m an optimist. We’re going to take the Senate.
That means a new republican Senate Majority Leader.
Reid will become even more useless and irrelevant than he is now....just like Connie Corleone over in the House.
I’d call Harry Reid a scumbag, but I wouldn’t want to insult bags of scum by equating them with that piece of absolute trash. (Sorry trash, at least you did something productive at some time, unlike do-nothing Harry)
Dingy Harry hides his mob money. Let’s ask him to release HIS tax records.
When is Obama releasing his?
he did, and how anyone in the world would have given him that amount of money boggles the imagination. Community organizer, state senator, 1 term U.S.senator, and he knocks down 750,000 per year....what am I missing here, I applied for that job and didn't get it....probably affirmative action or some such thing!!
Harry, you were wrong. Now, say you are sorry and resign.
Hes hiding something. Hes hiding something!
Yes Harry, he’s hiding your brain in a jar.
Reporter: What do you have to say about Reids statement you are hiding something?
Romney: (low chuckle) “Oh that’s just Harry being Harry”
“Meanwhile, speaking of goalpost-moving, the meme du jour on the left as I write this is that, by paying more than he owed, Romneys disqualified from the presidency by his own standards. He told an ABC reporter in July, I dont pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I dont think Id be qualified to become president. Id think people would want me to follow the law and pay only what the tax code requires.
They dropped obamacare on us and said they had to pass the freaking bill to find out what was in it.
Does anyone buy this sh1t from THESE @ssholes anymore!?!
great graphis - libs are such HAPPY people.
the difference between libs and pubbies: The pubbies give their OWN money - libs take YOURS and much of the distribution is into their own pockets.
“Harry Reid is also a Mormon. Why cant Harry Reid say anything nice about a Republican Mormon?”
As a 72 year-old life-long Mormon, I am preparing to ask to have my name removed from the Mormon Church as a member. Here we have one of the most despicable men of our time, claiming membership in good standing in the Mormon Church, while the church leaders are all hiding under their desks up in Salt Lake City! Our local Ward here in California can’t understand why they have not taken steps to excommunicate Reld because his behavior is at odds with many doctrines of the faith. I’ve had it! If they allow this POS to be a member in good standing, I want no part of it! I guess like a lot of things, this is not your father’s Mormon Church!
To the stooge from Reid’s office analyzing the posts: Your guy Reid is, too understate, not well liked. He is a liar. (I will not use obscenities such as “simpering little f** liar” because then you can discount our comments as ill tempered, etc. In stone cold common sense observation: advise him to resign.
That’s down quite a bit from the $1.7 million he reported in 2010.
I think Reid’s flipping out because he got played by Romney in a rope-a-dope/briar-patch sense. And knows it.
Romney gives 30% of his income to charity, paying 14% in taxes. That’s 44% of his income going out the door, and that IS the story here.
The release yesterday was deliberately timed to get the information into the news for the Friday evening news cycle in a way that would limit editorializing and prevent a quick response from the Obama Campaign - which will carry it into and through the weekend.
Reid’s initial attacks worked to Romney’s advantage - putting focus on the issue and allowing Romney to blow the accusations out of the water at a time/place of his own choosing.
If people go back through my postings here they’ll find that I’m not a big Romney fan, but I’ve wanted to give the guy a fair shake - especially from a campaign mechanics standpoint. What he and his campaign did yesterday was ... impressive. It’ll be more so if they can sustain and build the charitable-giving aspect of the narrative into next week, because it shows the fecklessness and emphasis on government handouts/dependency of the Democrats.
Heh, heh, heh.
If that's true, and I hope it is, then the detestable Reid has high-speed screws in the water and his sonar watch is napping at their stations. :-)
