Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he “did what was necessary” in 2012 when he falsely accused Mitt Romney of not having paid his taxes for 10 years.

Reid was asked about those comments, which he made during a speech on the Senate floor, in response to call during a live interview on Las Vegas’ KNPR.

The caller asked Reid if he thought that “the brazen lie he told about Mitt Romney not pay his taxes has in anyway contributed to the fake news debate that we now find ourselves in.”

And in an interview with The Washington Post in September, Reid said that lying about Romney’s taxes on the Senate floor was “one of the best things I’ve ever done.”

Democrats are called “outpatients” around here. There’s a reason.

So, in Reid’s world, it is perfectly acceptable to make a defamatory charge against an opponent to damage his campaign.

We should have learned from Harry’s lying about Romney to be able to see through these allegations against Ray Moore.

It’s like when scientists are caught lying about global warming. They say it’s justified because it spreads awareness.

Reid was asked about those comments, which he made during a speech on the Senate floor...

Which he did to inoculate himself from slander charges. And Harry Reid is all you need to know about democRats.

This was not a slip of the tongue, it was a calculated lie that Reid repeated several times in an attempt..

“I don’t regret that at all,” he told CNN’s Dana Bash on Tuesday in the interview clip above. “Romney didn’t win did he?”

So what mattered most to Reid was that Romney lost and Obama won.

when a Senate democratic leader spreads baseless allegations without a shred of evidence, and uses the Senate floor to do so, that’s one step too far. And what makes it even more egregious is that Reid seems to be proud of his actions.

So Harry, I guess your Christian Mormon faith does not include this: Exodus 20:16: Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. Correct me If I am wrong you evil bastard.
