That’s right. The only thing Harry Reid loves more than Viagra is sexually molesting boys. I’ve got that from a “very reliable source.” The source says that the boys are brought to him from Mexico, and Harry Reid has prevented any effort to stop illegal immigration because he wouldn’t have any more boys to molest. But of course I can’t tell you who that source is.
Harry Reid’s father must be so ashamed of him.
Harry Reid: This might not be true, but some Bain investor who I won’t name told me Romney didn’t pay income taxes for 10 years

Sounds solid. Mitt Romney, who’s been running for political office for 20 years now, decided he’d gamble those prospects and risk time in a federal pen for tax evasion in order to save a few million dollars that he doesn’t need.
And he made this decision year after year, for 10 years.
By the way, some random guy on the Internet told me Obama was born in Kenya. Now, do I know that’s true? Well, I’m not certain. But let me just toss it out there.
“His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son,” Reid said, in reference to George Romney’s standard-setting decision to turn over 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president in the late 1960s.
Saying he had “no problem with somebody being really, really wealthy,” Reid sat up in his chair a bit before stirring the pot further. A month or so ago, he said, a person who had invested with Bain Capital called his office.
“Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years,” Reid recounted the person as saying.
“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” said Reid. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?
“You guys have said his wealth is $250 million,” Reid went on. “Not a chance in the world. It’s a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty well if you don’t pay taxes for 10 years when you’re making millions and millions of dollars.”
No surprise that Reid would smear Romney so casually. He specializes in these tactics during presidential campaigns. In 2008, he made more noise about McCain’s temper being a sign of possible derangement than any other major Democrat. (He also insisted that he couldn’t stand McCain as part and parcel of the demonization effort, even though the two had been known to socialize.) He’s an unusually nasty character, even by normal political standards, when he wants to be; gratuitously accusing George Romney of being disappointed in his son is simply S.O.P. But he does have a strategy here: Pull an accusation of criminality straight out of his ass and hope it gets enough media play that Romney feels obliged to respond. Either Mitt will start to sweat and release his returns, as Democrats have demanded, in order to disprove Reid’s charge or he’ll sit tight and the smear will circulate online, with Romney’s refusal to disclose the documents taken as “proof” that Reid is right. In that respect, it’s not that different from Birtherism. It just so happens that you’ve got the Senate majority leader pushing this, not some commenter at dKos or wherever.
Exit question via Philip Klein: “How would ‘a person who had invested with Bain Capital’ know about Romney’s personal tax returns anyway?”
Harry Reid’s now obviously proven child molestation aside, this universe has something to take real “pride” (maybe even “pedophile pride” in): there aren’t very many possible worlds in which an administration that invoked executive privilege to avoid providing any records over the Fast and Furious scandal in which guns were literally sent by the Obama administration into the hands of Mexican drug cartel killers would turn around and say that Mitt Romney’s not releasing his personal records amount to “proof” of tax evasion. Because by that standard Barack Obama is clearly guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and should be impeached with every single Democrat voting guilty.
It’s a fascinating world in which a lie becomes the truth and then that truth becomes a lie all over again.
“I don’t think the burden should be on me,” Reid said. “The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?”
You see how that works? I make an accusation devoid of any evidence, and the burden of proof should fall upon the one accused to prove himself innocent of the accusation. And that from the Senate Majority Leader of the United States Senate!!!
That should scare the damn bejeezus out of any decent American – especially given what also happened this very week as the Democrat Mayors of Chicago, Boston and San Franscisco said that businesses that exercise their free speech rights ought to be punished by the power of the state. The Democrat Party is the party of open fascism, pure and simple.
Then there’s the blatant hypocrisy factor to go along with the fascist factor. Because the same party that is using the above tactic is allowing Barack Obama to use executive privilege from answering any questions whatsoever about how 2,000 guns from his programs ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartel killers who murdered two US law enforcement officers with them.
The only report we’ve got about Fast and Furious – because Obama sure as hell aint investigating it – gives us this:
According to a copy of the report obtained Monday by The Times, the investigators said their findings are “the best information available as of now” about the flawed gun operation that last month led to Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. being found in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over subpoenaed documents.
Two more final reports, they said, will deal with “the devastating failure of supervision and leadership” at the Department of Justice and an “unprecedented obstruction of the [congressional] investigation by the highest levels of the Justice Department, including the attorney general himself.”
No one, to my knowledge, ever accused Richard Nixon of being a Watergate burglar. His crime was in trying to cover it up; rather like what Obama is doing now. And of course the fact that Barack Obama has declared executive privilege and covered up the evidence PROVES he is a criminal and Harry Reid should be busy setting up Obama’s trial rather than making idiot statements about Mitt Romney.
But why would anybody trust a proven child molester like Harry Reid to pursue justice???
And of course the media will circulate Harry Reid’s charges all over the planet. Because it’s just like them to do a child molester’s bidding, isn’t it?
As just one other proof that Harry Reid is a hypocrite slime bag without shame, honor or decency, he is in fact one of the overwhelming number of politicians in “Congress who has voted against releasing his OWN tax returns.
