After Harry Reid tripled down on his un-American comments
“I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination,” Reid told Nevada reporters Wednesday. “I have had a number of people tell me that.” But he would not expand on his sources. “I don’t think the burden should be on me,” he said. “The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes.”
And on the Senate floor Thursday, Reid said, “The word is out he hasn’t paid taxes for 10 years.”
…Romney told him to put up or shut up
(The Hill) Mitt Romney on Thursday said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) needs to “put up or shut up” when it comes to charges the presumptive GOP nominee did not pay his taxes.
Romney also accused the White House of being behind the allegation.
“It’s time for Harry to put up or shut up,” Romney said on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with because that’s totally and completely wrong. 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.”
See, there’s a little thing in America called “due process” where people are innocent till proven guilty, and any accusers must be disclosed. What Reid has done is defame and slander Romney, who is still a private citizen. I suppose we should put Obama’s promise to change the atmosphere in Washington in the “promise kept” column, because who thought that things would get much, much worse, and usually coming from Democrats?
