Harry Reid is one of my favorite politicians.


I guess Mormonism is only an issue when it comes to your least favorite politicians, eh Lief?

Reid isn't in your face about being a part of that Satanic cult...

...but he is a member.

I had a dream a few nights ago where I was running for President and won based on the forum's advice.

Oh, so if he ran for president he would get the same amount of criticism that Romney got for his faith?  Really?

There is no downside for Reid. He  "repeated" what "someone else" said, and even pointed out that it could be completely false. The people of Nevada won't remember this in 4 years

Precisely!  Every Democrat should be out on the talk shows demanding to see Romney's taxes and implying he's a criminal.

This campaign is seriously reminding me of 2004. Aside from a president with about 49% approval running against a MA opponent known for "flip flopping." Romney's greatest personal strength is his businesss success, which is becoming his greatest liability. Now rumors are floating, which will probably be stoked with cheap 527 ads. At some point there could be enough doubt that anytime he mentions his experience, there be enough doubt that it negates any positivity.

Romney is way better funded than Kerry though. Then again, Kerry didn't use all of his campaign money.

as Harry Reid says, that Romney has not paid taxes for 10 years...can he continue as the GOP nominee?

It's not true, and there will be no way of verifying whether or not it is. Romney is the nominee.

To be honest it doesn't need to be true, because we will never know as long as Romney keeps his tax records secret.

As long as voters see Romney as an out of touch millionaire it will hurt him, and keeping this topic in the news only continues this.

Then how do you know it's not true?

Because if 1) He paid literally "no" taxes, he would be in jail and 2) I have a hard time beleiving he found a way to reduce his tax burden to such a low amount, more or less zero, even with clever mastery of the tax code and all the intricacies within it.

Mondale, that's a garbage standard to hold up. I'm not a birther, but I wasn't there to see little Barrie exit his mom's uterus in Hawaii, so I don't know that he's really a natural born citizen.

I don't actually believe he was born in Kenya. So do you really, honestly believe Mitt Romney paid NO TAXES FOR TEN YEARS? Come on.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

But you didn't see him at the moment of his birth.

"Ergo, you don't know."

Anyhow, I'm not getting much into this. I got into a dumb argument yesterday where people knew exactly what I meant but were pressing the point anyway. Bottom line: I understand why liberals are pretending they believe Mitt Romney never paid tax. I also understand (or hope) that many of them aren't naive enough to actually believe it.

I'll accept his tax returns as proof he's paid his fair share. He hasn't.

You're a little on the slow side aren't you?

The rumour that Obama wasn't born in the US was dismissed with the release of his birth certificates.

The rumour that Romney paid no taxes for 10 can't be dismissed until he releases his tax returns. As long as he's unwilling to release his tax returns he's inviting more of these rumours.

Quote
"You guys have said his wealth is $250 million," Reid went on. "Not a chance in the world. It's a lot more than that. I mean, you do pretty well if you don't pay taxes for 10 years when you're making millions and millions of dollars."

Ignoring Reid's absurd assumption that is impossible for millionaires with low (or non-existent, as is the assertion) tax rates to be worth $250 million or less...what ever happened to class? There is plenty to attack Romney on as a candidate with resorting to this sort of childishness. Essentially, Reid is publicly accusing Romney of a crime. Should his accusations prove to be false, Reid is guilty of slander - in which case Romney could score a few easy points should he file a civil suit.

To Romney's credit; In spite of all of his screw ups, he's handled this situation flawlessly. Stone-wall and let the Democrats look desperate. The polls reflect the weak sauce of the game Democratic politicians are playing.
