Politico has a story up about Harry Reid’s attack on Mitt Romney’s tax history. It ends with these words:
On “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” Stewart tore apart Reid, calling him a “terrible” person and calling it a “bull sh-t shot.”
“I cannot believe you just went dead dad shame on Mitt Romney,” Stewart said.
Asked how Reid was responding to such criticism, a third person close to Reid shrugged it off entirely.
“It’s impossible to say how little he cares,” the Reid confidante said. “He literally could not care less.”
Reid has a history of stupid gaffes, but the way he has doubled and then tripled down on his bizarre claim causes many to suspect he is engaged in a planned attack. Certainly, the attack as the tacit blessing of the Obama reelection campaign.
Reflecting the growing number of questions Americans have about Mitt Romney’s finances, Sen. Reid rightfully pointed out that Gov. Romney has something to hide.
Well, yes. We all have something to hide, and some things are kept hidden for good reason. That’s why we have a right to privacy. There are many things that businesses keep hidden for good reasons. See what happens when you ask Coca-Cola what the formula for Coke syrup is or if you ask Apple for details of their product development schedule. Because of his venture capital background, there may be things in Mitt Romney’s tax records that he is obliged to keep private. Similarly, there are things of a personal nature that one may want to keep private. The President hasn’t released his college or law school transcripts.
We bloggers went after Brett Kimberlin for his attack on the First Amendment rights of some of our colleagues. We should be equally vigorous on Senator Reid’s attack on the right to privacy. No, perhaps we should be more concerned. Brett Kimberlin in an ex-con running a small time con that eats up piddling resources from left wing sugar daddies. Harry Reid is the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, and having someone so dedicated to falsehood in that position in a clear and present danger to the Republic.
It’s time for him to have to deal with truth, justice, and the American way.
UPDATE–The Lonely Conservative takes note of the fact that Harry Reid is a liar and praises RNC Chairman Reince Preibus for calling the Senator out for his blatant falsehoods.
UPDATE 2–Peter V. Bella wonders if Harry Reid might be a crooked politician.
