The US Senate’s head scumbag Harry Reid launched a personal attack on Mitt Romney in an interview with the ultra-left web site Huffington Post today, saying Mitt Romney’s father George would be “embarrassed about his son.”
I try to avoid linking to Huffington, so the link is to Free Beacon.
Reid, whose personal financial history includes shady Nevada land deals he’s never been forced to explain, has his panties in a twist because Romney has released the same number of tax returns as the last Republican candidate for President John McCain. Reid would love to have more to the bought-and-paid-for Democrat press could find molehills to turn into mountains.
Reid doesn’t have much to worry about politically, because he’ll be Minority Leader when President Romney is sworn in and won’t really have to work with him to make any deals.
The unsubstantiated allegation about Romney’s taxes was based on what Reid described as the recollection of an unnamed Bain investor. Reid admitted he did not know if the claim was true, but aired it anyway.
“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” Reid told the Huffington Post. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?”
Reid went on, “His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son,” referring to George Romney’s decision to release 12 years of tax returns during his run for president.
