Skip to comments.Harry Reid’s latest broadside
Posted on 08/06/2012 6:12:25 PM PDT by Evil Slayer
For once, Harry Reid held his tongue.
The Senate majority leader had agreed to participate in a conference call Monday afternoon with Interior Secretary Ken Salazar about renewable energy, but it was obvious that the questions would instead be about Reids own windiness, and his decision to go nuclear on Mitt Romney last week by suggesting that the Republican presidential candidate didnt pay taxes for 10 years.
The calls moderator tried to direct reporters away from Reids constantly replenishing verbal energy, saying that the media are asked to focus their questions on todays announcement only. Yet even that was too chancy for Reid, who, just before the Q&A, announced: Ive got to go dedicate a new veterans hospital now, and, uh, thank you very much. Ken, Im going to leave the heavy lifting to you. Bye.
It makes sense that Reid wouldnt want to be questioned on the particulars of his outlandish accusation that Romney is the tax deadbeat of the decade. But those close to the senator tell me that hes delighted with the conflagration he sparked last week, and that he is determined to keep it going. This soft-spoken Mormon from rural Nevada is quite deliberately turning himself into the mad dog of the 2012 campaign.
The talk after Reids tax broadside was that it was another of his famous verbal gaffes, the latest symptom of a kind of political Tourettes syndrome that has caused the senator to call George W. Bush a loser and a liar, Alan Greenspan a hack, Clarence Thomas an embarrassment, the war in Iraq lost, Capitol tourists smelly, and his aides fat.
But this is something different for Reid, an extension of a role he assigned himself in 2008 when he endlessly hectored John McCain for missing Senate votes, accusing the Republican presidential

Interesting from the WaPo.
Hey Dana, Reid hasn't released his own tax returns, either. Are you such a poor reporter that you don't know that, or are you so biased that you choose not to report it?
I wish I’d put that mouse on him.
I think Mr. Harry is projecting his hurt feelings from the 2010 election when his son wanted to not use the name “Reid” in his own campaign. (”Rory Reid is doing his best to distance himself from his father,” the Las Vegas Sun reports. “He wants voters to know him simply as: Rory.”). The tell was when he said that Romney’s dad would be “ashamed of him.” Poor Harry, he needs some shrinking.
Sourpus Harry better get used to the look... he's political roadkill come November. Just another two-dimensional armadillo stinkin' up the roadside. LMAO!!!!
That’s a clown question “girlfriend” (snap).
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.
Dirty Harry Reid is so well known as a Mafia puppet, that he was featured in the movie Casino as "Harrison Roberts."
All someone with the public’s ear has to say is, “The President knows that Romney did not avoid 10 years of taxes”. Then Obama will be forced to either agree with Reid and be shown the fool or throw his surrogate under the bus.
Harry reid’s tongue is like an unchained pit bull. It leaves shit all over the place.
