GOP to Reid: You're next
politico.com ^ | 5 Aug 12 | By CHARLES MAHTESIAN

Posted on 08/05/2012 11:00:22 AM PDT by elhombrelibre

The Sunday news shows featured a rare spectacle that at once revealed the decline of civility in Washington and the depth of GOP outrage over Harry Reid’s unproven claim that Mitt Romney didn’t pay income taxes for an entire decade: two of the nation’s top GOP officials flat out called the Senate majority leader a liar.

That’s no ordinary criticism in official Washington.

There are plenty of other ways that pols use to call out their partisan rivals on their statements. Reid’s GOP counterpart, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, for one, has already said Reid’s charge is “beneath the dignity” of his office.

The little bastard really stepped in it this time.

They got more than enough on him to get his ass thrown in jail.

Now all we need is someone with enough balls to do it.

Reid’s as crooked as they come. Of all the people who shouldn’t be opening his mouth, he’s at the top of the list. If people who know start talking about his past, he’s toast, and not just politically.

I read or heard somewhere, I don’t recall exactly where that Obama and Reid are having a homosexual affair. And...that the both of them like playing with little boys.

I’m gonna send this info to the msm, I’m sure they’ll report it asap. lol

Another reason for McConnell to go. We need a fighter who is not timid with his words. The rules are changing, and McConnell is not.

Why are we hitting on Reid. Obama is in charge of his campaign. Reid’s words are approved by Obama and Obama is the liar. Our leadership should be asking Obama to disavow Reid.

There is now an allegation on the table that Reid is a child rapist and sick pedophile.

Is it possible that he has kidnapped toddlers & small children and used them for his own perverse sexual pleasure?

Sick, sick pervert!

Screw disavow, that gets reid off the hook, nor does it punish obama. The words came directly out of reid's mouth - SEVERAL TIMES. Go after reid with a vengence and don't stop until he is broke and broken.

What does he care?

He won re-election with Steve Wynn’s money and Union support.

So the GOP can go to Hell.

I suspect that very shortly Alex Jones will start looking into the rumors of pagan orgies and satanic worship at Obama’s gay bathhouse when Reid was there. There have even been stories of cannibalism and eating dogs.

Now, though, the GOP has indicated it plans to make it personal. Between the loaded language and Priebus’s pointed reference to Reid’s Ritz-Carlton abode – an issue that surfaced in the senator’s 2010 re-election campaign – Republicans just sent the clearest signal to Reid yet that he needs to either produce the evidence, stand down or prepare for an extended public discussion of his own finances.

LOL...right our gutless, feckless, craven weasels in the GOPe are actually going after Reid...NOT HOLDING MY BREATH...

More like "Harry stop being so mean...don't you know it's beneath your esteemed position to get into gutter politics"

Romney should call a press conference and lay out every single criminal activity Reid has ever been associated with and not take a single question from the media and leave them hanging...by telling them when they are done getting answers from Reid about his "alleged criminal activity" he will be glad to take questions and walk out of the room

Didn’t I read somewhere that Reid used to be a boxer? Besides, punching him would be better than he deserves. He ought to be ex-communicated from the human race. An evil man if ever there was one.

I got a call that this is true, and it came from a reliable source.

So, with all these sources, yours and mine, we can now state that the "word is out".

Ried has "unknown" sources telling him Romey doesn't pay taxes. Others have "unknown " source's outing Reid as a child predator.

They're both just as believable. Romney must prove he pays taxes, and in all fairness, Reid has to prove he doesn't rape young boys.

I think not only is it fair - it's bipartisan.

"“As far as Harry Reid is concerned, listen, you might want to go down that road, I'm not going to respond to a dirty liar, who hasn't filed a single page of tax returns himself,” Priebus said on ABC's "This Week" with George Stephanopoulos. "

Not just a liar.... but a "Dirty Liar". That is a huge difference. It is like the difference between a "dare" and a "triple dog dare".... Priebus really stepped it up!

The word is out that Harry Reid is a crook.
Senator Harry Reid’s Part in Green-Energy Crony-Corruption
So far our chronicle of the green-energy crony-corruption story, has focused primarily on the connections the players have to President Obama. This chapter stars Senator Harry Reid. When looking at the whole story, it’s important to note that Senator Reid “led passage of the $814 billion stimulus bill and worked to include the loan guarantee program to help finance clean-energy projects”—projects to which, as we will show, he is connected.
In a DOE press release, Reid actually bragged about how he included the green loan guarantee in the stimulus bill: “As I led passage of the stimulus bill, I worked to include the loan guarantee program to help finance clean energy projects” that will “bring us closer to energy independence.” ...
Last week, we exposed BrightSource Energy that received a $1.6 billion DOE loan. BrightSource’s executives donated almost $4000 to Reid’s 2010 campaign,...
The week before, we uncovered the fact that a couple of SolarReserve (with its $737 million loan) board members are big Democrat donors, including contributions to Obama’s 2008 campaign as well as Senator Reid. The Washington Free Beacon divulged, “…Nevada Geothermal, Ormat Nevada, and SolarReserve—are located in Reid’s home state. Executives from all three companies have donated to Reid and his fellow Democrats, contributing more than $58,000 since 2008.”
Nevada Geothermal Power
First we’ll look into Nevada Geothermal Power (NGP) as recent news exposes that its power is dimming. NGP may be the next green-energy bankruptcy.
Here’s the NGP thumbnail presented in the introduction to the green-energy crony-corruption story:
Nevada Geothermal Power (NGP) holds leasehold interests in six geothermal projects located in the Western United States. They hold a BB+ rating and received a $78.8 million loan, guaranteed by the DOE, in September of 2010. Executives from NGP contributed in 2008 to Harry Reid’s campaign. ...
Ormat Nevada
But the story continues. As we reported in the introduction, Kai Anderson, a lobbyist for NGP’s partner corporation, Ormat Technologies, Inc., is a former Senate aide to Harry Reid. Ormat’s CEO Paul Thomsen is another former Reid aide. Additionally, according to the Washington Times, “Mr. Fairbank denied knowing or lobbying Mr. Reid, but the House Oversight Committee said Ormat Inc., which was paid $80 million to build NGP’s Blue Mountain plant, has ‘strong ties’ to the senator.”

It goes on and on Harry. You are as corrupt as they come.

“Republicans had better realize that we are in the midst of a civil war. No guns and bullets yet, but in all other ways, the war has begun.”

If 0bama wins, you will be proven right. Civil war follows debt crisis, economic collapse. But right now we are witnessing an unprecedented intensification of political combat. Accusing opponents of serious felonies is a new low. So are the unconstitutional EOs and other acts. What’s the next step? Will the Dems arrest political opponents for these type of accusations?

Yes, if the GOP had worked a bit harder in Nevada in 2010, there would be no Harry Reid in the Senate today.

Sharon Angle (was that her name?) really did have a chance...I read an article a year or so ago about the last half week of that campaign.

We (the GOP) really did BLOW IT. Just like we (the GOP) let Joe Miller down in Alaska and now that liberal Murkowski is still in office.

Delaware was another blown opportunity, though it was a much more “uphill battle” than the other two.

Nevertheless, we won’t win every battle...but we’ll win many. We win wars in incremental bits of time called “battles”, and not every battle is a victory.

Don’t give up.

Dirty Harry Reid: The Mafia's "Mr. Clean Face" on the Nevada Gaming Commission

Reid is so mobbed up that he's a walking, talking blackmail puppet. Axlerod could order him to strip naked on the Senate floor and tar and feather himself and he would do so instantly.

Read Freeper Fedora's excellent investigative thread to understand this human slimeball, and why he is willing to be a tool in this libel campaign: he has NO CHOICE. He is a Mafia and Chicago Rat Mob puppet.

Mr. Cleanface’s Dirty Laundry: Harry Reid’s Mob Money. (Original FReeper research 01/20/2006 by Fedora)

Dirty Harry Reid Got $1.1M In Shady NV Land Deals: one example of how it was done.

Dirty Harry Reid is so well known as a Mafia puppet, that he was featured in the movie Casino as "Harrison Roberts."
