Senator Reid of Nevada has just taken the title of Dumbest Man in the Senate (used to belong to Joe Biden) with his claim that Romney has now somehow *faked* his tax return document before it was made public.
The comment as it appeared on the CNN newsfeed… :
(CNN) – Sen. Harry Reid said nothing of his earlier claims that Mitt Romney had not paid taxes over a ten-year span in a Friday statement joining Democrats in responding to Romney’s release of tax-related documents on Friday.
The Nevada Democrat and Senate majority leader called Romney’s accounting “galling” and said the documentation “reveals that Mitt Romney manipulated one of the only two years of tax returns he’s seen fit to show the American people – and then only to ‘conform’ with his public statements.”
Romney’s accounting is *galling*? No, whats galling is this morons lack of leadership in the Senate, and refusal to pass/approve a fiscal budget in over 3 years.
This is tin-foil-hat idiocy at its finest. The people of Nevada should be ashamed of themselves, sending that idiot to the US Senate.
They both meant what they said. OBambi with his *you didn’t build that* and Mitt with his “its not my job to be concerned about those people”.
OBambi was speaking about how Goobermint provides stuff so that we could be successful. Unfortunately, Goobermint doesn’t *provide*, it simply confiscates money, then parses it back out. OBambi’s comment was disingenuous at best, because its not as if Goobermint did anything out of the goodness of its heart. So, it really didn’t *do* anything for business owners, and as such has no claim *against* business owners.
Mitt was speaking in an answer to a question, and spoke his mind, factually I might add. In terms of his campaign strategy, there are the bottom 47% of voters who pay no Federal Income Taxes (because they fall below the minimum threshold, or with their deductions they fall below it) and this voting bloc, because they are living on the dole, are not about to vote Republican and cut off the head from the golden egg-laying goose. So, he was quite up front and honest that his job, as a candidate for the Republican Nomination (remember, the comment was from mid-May) his JOB (in terms of getting elected) is NOT to try to go after a voting bloc that wasn’t going to vote for him anyways…its to go after the undecideds and independents, so as to gather as many of them as possible to put him over the top in the swing states.
Whether it was good politics or lousy common sense will have to be left to history to judge. At this point he’s getting my vote, because the alternative is OBambi, and this country can’t survive another 4 years of that shit.
