  • 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...

    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...

    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,...

    Whenever a name Republican says something stupid or indefensible or arguably both, for the next three days folks will open a conversation by asking me (the only Republican they know) what I think about the latest GOP gaffe. That standard does not apply when Democrats talk out of turn -- even when they make unsupportable accusations deliberately. Last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did just that when he told The Huffington Post that an unnamed Bain Capital investor told him Mitt Romney "didn't pay taxes for 10 years." Romney denies the charge. PolitiFact rated Reid's unsubstantiated claim as "pants...

    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. I want to see his application. Did he seek extra consideration, as did Elizabeth Warren in applying for her academic opportunities, by claiming to be a member of a demographic group favored by affirmative action? I imagine that he did not falsely claim special...

    For once, Harry Reid held his tongue. The Senate majority leader had agreed to participate in a conference call Monday afternoon with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar about renewable energy, but it was obvious that the questions would instead be about Reid’s own windiness, and his decision to go nuclear on Mitt Romney last week by suggesting that the Republican presidential candidate didn’t pay taxes for 10 years. The call’s moderator tried to direct reporters away from Reid’s constantly replenishing verbal energy, saying that the “media are asked to focus their questions on today’s announcement only.” Yet even that was too...

    CHICAGO, August 6, 2012 — If you Google “Harry Reid pederast,” you get almost one million results. A pederast, by the way, is a man who engages in sexual relations with an underage minor. 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?

    The White House on Monday distanced President Obama from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s comments that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes in a decade. White House press secretary Jay Carney said on Monday that Reid (D-Nev.) “speaks for himself” and had spoken on the issue without any guidance from Team Obama. … In an interview last week, Reid claimed a Bain Capital investor told him Romney had not paid any taxes in 10 years. That’s why, Reid said, Romney has refused to release more than the roughly two years' worth of tax returns he's already shared. Romney...

    Earlier today, I noted that George Will had ripped Harry Reid for his baseless accusations of tax evasion thrown at Mitt Romney, even from the Senate floor, calling it "McCarthyism from the desert." Will is a conservative commentator, of course, so it's perhaps unsurprising to see him aggressively attacking Reid. What do liberal commentators think of Harry Reid? Richard Cohen is Will's colleague at the Washington Post, and Cohen leaps to Reid’s defense*: For Reid, this is yet another brazen and tasteless partisan attack. As majority leader, he has managed to sink the public image of the Senate even lower...

    Looks like the GOP isn't standing for Sen. Harry Reid's bullying tactics. Reid recently suggested--without a shred of evidence he can share, apparently--that Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes for quite awhile. Reports the AP:   Top Republicans on Sunday accused Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of lying by passing along an anonymous claim that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney hasn't paid taxes for 10 years. Republican Party chairman Reince Priebus called Reid a "dirty liar." Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said, "I think he's lying about his statement of knowing something about Romney" and he contended Reid was "making things up...
