Once again, conservatives fail with irony.
Yes. Harry Reid (who has not shown his own taxes) is an idiot for saying he has a good source who told him Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in over ten years. If you don’t have proof, then don’t pick that fight. It’s not fair. And that’s something Republicans can take a cue from.
Republicans are screaming about this. Hell, even Democrats are screaming about this. Well, most of them. Nobody wants to ride this train with Harry except for maybe Nancy Pelosi and the ultra-left libs at MSNBC. But Republicans, listen to yourself. To say Obama is behind this is another accusation you can’t prove. You’re simply doing the same thing you’re complaining about others doing. That makes me slap my forehead. Not so much that you do it, but that you don’t get the irony.
And seriously? After all the birther, Muslim, commie nonsense, you guys are going to complain about unfounded accusations? Donald Trump and others go after Obama’s birth certificate and none of you attacked The Donald for that craziness (Hell, Mitt takes photo-ops with the loony). You let conservative voters believe all the nonsense without distancing yourself away from it. And now you’re upset over Harry Reid talking about Romney’s taxes.
Harry Reid is an idiot….or a mad genius. Yeah, he’s coming off looking like an idiot. But he’s totally taking one for the team. He has six years until his reelection. Hardly anyone outside politics knows who he is. And right now, everyone’s still talking about Romney’s taxes. Harry is keeping the fire going, even if he’s going to be burned with it.
The thing is, it would be extremly amazing if Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years. In fact, it’s probably impossible. I don’t believe Harry Reid. But I do know Romney has to show his taxes to be elected president. He has to show his taxes to prove Harry Reid wrong. But he’s not going to do that.
Romney is running for arguably the highest position in the world. He’s running on a tax platform. Yet he won’t show us how he manages his own taxes. He doesn’t want us to get to know him too well. This is the same guy who demanded Ted Kennedy show his taxes when Romney challened him for his Senate seat.
Here’s what you can accuse Romney of: He’s hiding something. That I do believe.
