  • HuffPo's Grim Grim Burned by Parra's Parry on Harry Reid Bain Capital Source ID

    It's time now to play a new political game: Who's the Liar? In one corner we have the Huffington Post Washington bureau chief, Ryan Grim, who must be feeling very grim today because his "scoop" about the Bain Capital source of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's claim about Mitt Romney not paying taxes for 10 years has blown up on him. Grim Grim quoted Reid's spokesman, Jose Parra, as stating that Reid's Bain Capital source is a Republican. Unfortunately for grim Grim this assertion was countered by Parra's parry that he said no such thing. Since grim Grim placed Parra's...
  • Dirty Harry Doing the Obama Campaign's Dirty Business

    Presidential campaigns can get down and dirty at times, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is pushing this year's contest to an even dirtier level. That's saying a lot, because the Nevada Democrat has had a reputation for being one of the dirtiest politicians in the sleaze- slinging business. In an interview with the Huffington Post the other day, Reid charged that an unnamed investor at Bain Capital, the business investment company Mitt Romney founded, told him that Romney hadn't paid any federal taxes for at least a decade. "He didn't pay taxes for 10 years," Reid stated flatly. "Now,...

    Now it can be told. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, despite his lofty position in the United States Senate and despite being married to a very nice woman, has been having sex with a cow for at least three months, maybe more. How he met the cow I cannot say, as it would compromise extremely sensitive sources. Where he met her? Again, my lips are sealed. Nonetheless, it is time for Senator Reid to come clean about that cow. The Senate Majority Leaders said recently of Mitt Romney, the presumed Republican presidential nominee, that he "must prove that he has...
  • 'Mad Dog' Harry Reid

    To call Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a "mad dog," as Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank did, is an affront to the canine community and those suffering from legitimate mental illness. Reid was completely sane when he spread hearsay about an anonymous Bain Capital investor who allegedly told him Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. Doesn't Reid, a Mormon like Romney, subscribe to the prohibition in the Ninth Commandment: "Thou shall not bear false witness"? He appears to pay no political price because he's a Democrat and unlike Joe McCarthy, to whom some are comparing him, no prominent...

    If Hollywood put out a casting call for a leading man to play the president of the United States, Mitt Romney would fit the bill to perfection. In the looks department, he has a picture-perfect smile and perfect hair. In personality, he projects an air of confidence and leadership. His family life mirrors a 1950s television show -- still married to his beautiful first wife; father of five successful, handsome sons; grandfather to many adorable little children; has never smoked, imbibed alcohol, or done drugs; is devoted to his church, gives generously to charity, and personally helps those in need;...

    Via the Washington Free Beacon, why on earth is the White House press secretary wading into a dispute related to the presidential race? I'm sure GOP press secretaries have done that too for Republican incumbents but I don't like it from either party. Carney's supposed to be a liaison between the president and the media so that the public can stay informed about what's going on with the executive branch. The only questions he should be fielding vis-a-vis Romney are when Team Mitt makes a charge about the administration’s policies that requires fact checking. The One's paying Ben LaBolt for...

    Weak economy, no job growth and huge deficits should be the real target. When he descended into smarmy innuendo about Mitt Romney’s taxes, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was merely executing a tactic that is increasingly central to President Obama’s reelection campaign. High unemployment and trickling job production have foreclosed Obama from running strong on his domestic record. So he’s painting Romney as a rich, out-of-touch tax chiseler as a distraction from the accumulating woeful economic reports. Reid took the rhetoric into the pits with a claim that someone had told him Romney had not paid taxes for 10 years,...

    LAS VEGAS — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid again deflected questions Monday about releasing his tax returns, even as he continued to pound the demand for Mitt Romney to make more of his own public. Instead, Reid pointed to the financial disclosure forms he files as a member of Congress, which provide different information. “I’m a member of Congress now, I don’t make too much money,” said Reid, whose net worth was estimated at $10 million in 2010. “But it’s all listed every year.” Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson told POLITICO last week that the majority leader will not release his...

    Harry Reid wants to see more of Mitt Romney's past income-tax filings. Debbie Wasserman Schultz wants to see 23 years of his taxes. This, from the die-hard supporters of a candidate who will not release his college transcripts or so much more. I want to know how Barack Obama got into Columbia University for undergraduate school.

    For once, Harry Reid held his tongue.

And while political blogs and social media lynch mobs are abuzz with these low blow allegations against Reid, nothing is proven. But according to the rules set by Harry Reid, he has an obligation to show that they are false, or he must be held accountable as a pederast. Is Harry Reid a pederast? Does he support pederasty?

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...

In a welter of technical jargon, it dealt with boundary shifts, land trades and other arcane matters -- all in Nevada. What Reid did not explain was that the bill provides a cavalcade of benefits to real estate developers, corporations and local institutions that were paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to his sons' and son-in-laws'firms, federal lobbyist reports show. . .

    Harry M. Reid of Nevada, the Senate's top Democrat, said yesterday that he was in discussions with the chamber's ethics committee to determine whether he should amend his financial disclosure forms to include details of a real estate transaction that allowed him to collect $1.1 million.

Reid also did not divulge the 2001 transfer of the land to a company he co-owned with a friend, a transaction that would normally...

But now-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid effectively did just that when a longtime friend decided to sell property owned by the employee pension fund that he controlled. In 2002, Reid (D-Nev.) paid $10,000 to a pension fund controlled by Clair Haycock, a Las Vegas lubricants distributor and his friend for 50 years.

    (CNN) - Mitt Romney on Thursday pushed back against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's allegations that the presumptive GOP nominee has not been paying his taxes. "It's time for Harry to put up or shut up," Romney said on Sean Hannity's radio show. Reid stood by the allegations on Thursday while speaking on the Senate floor. "The word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years," he said. "Let him prove he has paid taxes because he hasn't." Romney has made public the full 2010 tax return and an estimate for 2011, with a pledge to release the...
  • Reid: Romney is guilty of tax evasion until he proves he’s innocent

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that the burden of proof is on Mitt Romney to prove that he hasn’t evaded paying his taxes, despite the legal principle that a person accused of a crime is “innocent until proven guilty.” Reid accused Romney of what amounts to tax fraud, but he doesn’t think he to provide evidence for the charge. “I don’t think the burden should be on me,” Reid told reporters on a conference call, according to the Las Vegas Review Journal. “The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes....

    Here's a totally unsubstantiated rumor: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that he's heard that Romney did not pay any taxes for 10 years. Democrats have criticized Romney for not releasing more than two years of his tax returns. But there has never been anything to suggest that Romney's tax bill was zero. The presumptive GOP candidate has said he always paid all of the taxes he was required by law to pay. But he has said releasing more tax returns would likely not quiet critics. And so speculation has run rampant. In an interview with the Huffington Post,...

    This is going to shock the hell out of some IRS auditors I know. VIDEO This is funny, except when you consider that the point Reid is trying to make is (I think) that you can avoid paying taxes if you stop making money. Meaning that if you quit your job and become dependent on government subsidies and entitlements you can stop paying taxes. Which is true, I guess, but not exactly in keeping with the principles of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” that this country was founded upon.

    Sounds solid. Mitt Romney, who's been running for political office for 20 years now, decided he'd gamble those prospects and risk time in a federal pen for tax evasion in order to save a few million dollars that he doesn't need.And he made this decision year after year, for 10 years.By the way, some random guy on the Internet told me Obama was born in Kenya. Now, do I know that's true? Well, I'm not certain. But let me just toss it out there. "His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son," Reid said, in reference to George...

    Although Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has the voice and demeanor that seems to resemble that of a sad undertaker, is it really accurate to describe him as "soft-spoken" and not being known for "hyperbole?" That is how the Huffington Post described him in an article chock full of unhinged Harry Reid quotes so over the top as to actually be comedically entertaining. The story was about Reid castigating fellow Democrat Bill Magwood of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.  I will get into the details of Reid's anger but first let us enjoy one of the highly entertaining money quotes: "He's...
