Harry Reid's Big Mouth

So why is McCain being so quiet about this, he's seen Romney's returns from 1984-2007, all he has to say is yes, Romney did pay taxes for every year that I've seen. Now while he may have passed him over for Palin, he still allowed him to campaign with and for him in 2008 so there must not have been anything bad in them. Yet Romney is hiding something, there is enough potentially damaging information in them or possibly the 2008-2009 returns that could be twisted by the Obama campaign ... at least, that is the reason he gives for not releasing them.

Jim, you don't even acknowledge that it doesn't matter that there is absolutely no damaging information in the tax returns and that Alexrod will twist them anyway.

Isn't a stupid conspiracy the best one? Keep trying junior.

Do you also believe that the IRS is in the bag for Romney? Do you believe the IRS would say "Oh, these are Mitt Romney's tax returns, we can't say that he is cheating on his taxes and hasn't paid what he owed."? Answer yes to either of these questions to either of these questions and we will know that further conversation with you is pointless.
Whenever a name Republican says something stupid or indefensible or arguably both, for the next three days folks will open a conversation by asking me (the only Republican they know) what I think about the latest GOP gaffe.

That standard does not apply when Democrats talk out of turn -- even when they make unsupportable accusations deliberately. Last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid did just that when he told The Huffington Post that an unnamed Bain Capital investor told him Mitt Romney "didn't pay taxes for 10 years."

Romney denies the charge. PolitiFact rated Reid's unsubstantiated claim as "pants on fire" false...
