Poor Harry Reid has truly lost his last surviving brain cell and tells Huffington Post that it might or might not be true but he heard that Mitt Romney didn't pay taxes for 10 years.
Fortune calls out Reid, in their headline, for his "BS."
Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) made political waves today by claiming that a Bain Capital investor told him that Mitt Romney didn't pay any taxes for a 10-year period.
One of two things has happened: (1) Reid is simply making the whole thing up, in order to pressure Romney into releasing tax returns for years prior to 2010, or (2) Reid's investor pal lied, and the Senator didn't bother to conduct even a mild vetting before sharing the accusation with reporters. Either way, shame on gossipy gentleman from Nevada.
ABC News calls it "wild speculation" but liberals and the liberal media are repeating the rumor as if it is gospel.
This instantly brings to mind reports claiming Democrats were starting to panic over Obama's reelection prospects, panic over Romney's outraising Obama for campaign donation, and panic about "paving the road for a Romney administration," as a DSCC message declares.
Barack Obama, Democrats and liberals have been throwing everything, including the kitchen, sink at Mitt Romney and nothing is working. They have implied Romney is a felon with not even a hint of any investigation against him, they have attacked Romney's business experience because to liberals making money and being successful is some kind of crime, they have attacked his wife, his religion, his term at Bain, and last but not least, one liberal bimbo actually attacked his underwear.
Reid's latest rumor-mongering is further proof that Democrats are truly in panic mode because the two issues Americans are the most concerned about, jobs and the economy, are the two issues that are driving voters from Obama to Romney.
The lengths Obama, Reid, liberals, and far left Democrats are going to in order to avoid addressing Obama's economic failures is giving a whole new meaning to the word pathetic.
