Romney Overpaid $500,000 Income Tax: Reid Cries 'Manipulation'

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid charged Mitt Romney with manipulating his 2011 taxes to “conform with his public statements,” after the Republican presidential challenger's return showed he paid nearly $500,000 more than he should have.

"Governor Romney is showing us what he does when the public is looking," Reid said. "The true test of his character would be to show what he did when everyone was not looking at his taxes."

Reid was referring to the Republican presidential candidate's decision not to take the full write-off on the huge amount he and his wife Ann gave to charity last year.

Mr. Reid, part of gambling is knowing when to fold...

Confused Harry, did he not pay taxes, or did he pay too much, or too little. It’s hard to keep track day-to-day.

He should know since he was one of the ones who was “manipulated” the hardest.

If Romney was clever enough to manufacture all of the exploding cigars the Democrats and their Media allies have been smoking, then he is clever enough to be President .

Did Harry Reid ever settle his pedophile law suit? Was’nt he sued $500,000 for being a pedophile?

The fact of the matter is that Rommney produced tax reports ; no matter what was produced , it wouldn’t satisfy Reid.

Now its time for Reid to produce his discredited mystery source , or, put out his own tax report out to the public .

"Governor Romney is showing us what he does when the public is looking," Reid said. "The true test of his character would be to show what he did when everyone was not looking at his taxes."

If people weren't so stupid this would be funny. He voluntarily pays MORE than he should and it's bad because he didn't take advantage of a legal tax credit that he could have used when he donated MILLIONS of dollars to charity??
