Without basis, Harry Reid has pathetically and irresponsibly accused Mitt Romney of not filing his taxes for the past 10 years. Mr. Reid was unable to share his source, no surprise there, and even doubled down on his baseless allegations when challenged.
Glenn Beck was reporting on this silly story when he received a call stating that Mr. Reid may be a pedophile. Of course, the point is only that baseless charges should not be tolerated.
The Senate Majority Leader and possible pedophile continued his craziness even after he had time to think about it by stating "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?" Should the burden be on Mr. Reid to prove that he is NOT a pedophile?
This ridiculous story broke on the Huffington Post, and includes Reid saying he had "no problem with somebody being really, really wealthy," which is quite generous of Harry, who makes a ton of money himself.
He continued to say that some random person who had invested in Bain Capital (apparently, any connection to Bain gives someone the authority over Romney's personal financial information) told him, "Harry, he didn't pay any taxes for 10 years." What a low-down and desperate trick from Reid.
Unfortunately, these little not-so-subtle fake charges have been thrown around quite a bit, by President Barack Obama's deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, for one, who stated, "Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony." If Mitt Romney can be charged with being a tax-cheat and felon based on silly hearsay, perhaps anyone who makes any claim is validated.
So, Mitt Romney is a felon, a tax cheat, and (gasp) "really, really wealthy", (which has turned into a crime in the new "eat the rich" class-baiting democratic party) instead of just being a little bit wealthy, like Mr. Reid.
Perhaps Romney should release his tax records when Reid reveals his source, or when Obama releases his college records, or when Eric Holder releases the Fast & Furious documents, or when Ken Salazar releases records related to the drilling moratorium, or when Michelle Obama releases records related to the expenses paid on her tax-payer funded holidays, or when Debbie Wasserman-Shultz releases her tax records or off shore banking records....
Romney responded to the moronic allegations by stating in part,
"It's untrue, dishonest, and inaccurate. It's wrong. So I'm looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources and we'll probably find out it's the White House. Look, the Obama campaign is going to do everything in its power to try and talk about anything besides the president's record. Home prices, median American incomes, gasoline prices, 23 million underemployed or unemployed."
Is "speculation" is the new "truth"? Americans should demand better.
Glenn Beck pokes fun, by speculating that Harry Reid may be a pedophile.
