Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has done something that I thought no politician would ever do: blatantly lie about a Republican with absolutely NO proof or credibly-named source! Harry Reid, “The Evil Dwarf,” actually made this accusation on the floor of the United States Senate! A flat out, in your face, partisan accusation, intended to do nothing but put doubt in voters’ minds about Romney’s character. Now, keep what I’m about to say in mind as you consider Reid’s accusation. First, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi refuse to put their own tax returns out for public scrutiny; why? Second, Harry Reid made a $1 MILLION profit on a piece of land in Nevada that he said he didn’t OWN? Hey Harry, we’d really like to know your real estate secrets so that we poor peons paying your salary can get in on a little of your pot of gold!
According to the news stories at the time, there seemed to be a dark shade of seediness about the whole deal; why? You went into the Congress on the verge of bankruptcy, Harry, and now you’re a multi-millionaire! Wow; you should write a book about frugality. It would definitely be a bestseller. You keep blaming the Republicans, Harry, for doing nothing to help solve the nation’s problems, but they’ve submitted over 30 bills that they say would stimulate job creation; yet you alone refuse to allow them to be brought to the Senate floor for discussion! Why? Could it be that you’ve been playing PARTISAN politics for the last two years just trying to HIDE anything that might show Americans who the real obstructionists are?

You accuse Mitt Romney, unjustifiably I may add, but you don’t put pressure on Obama and Eric Holder to give Congress the documents concerning Operation “Fast & Furious” that were lawfully subpoenaed but were then thrown under “Executive Privilege”? What do they have to hide, Harry, that you don’t want to be revealed BEFORE the election in November? It has been reported that the Obama White House gave you support and encouragement to make this accusation against Mr. Romney, but don’t you find it ironic that Obama has sealed his college transcripts and the documents concerning the surrender of both his and Michelle’s law licenses? How about Mr. Obama allegedly holding a social security number in a state that he was neither born nor raised in?
Obama admitted that characters in his “autobiography” are “composite characters”. Why would anyone, especially a man “destined” to achieve great things, have to make up people in his life? Who are you, Mr. Obama, and what are YOU hiding from the American public? Why are you running from your record, Mr. Obama, yet telling group after group on your campaign tour that your programs have worked, the private sector is fine, and that you have no war on fossil fuels? All of this is a flat-out LIE, if you care to breath the fresh air outside of Washington D.C.!
Nancy Pelosi, you won’t release your joint tax returns, but you think Mitt Romney should do so…why? You’ve had the opportunity to feed at the public trough for many years, so why shouldn’t you also be accountable to the taxpayers for what you make and spend? You and your husband are millionaires; are you protesting out in front of your house against yourselves? Why not? Aren’t you the very people that you want the poor and middle classes to hate so much? Why don’t you be transparent, Nancy, and let us know how you make all your money and what you do with it?
You Progressives are getting more desperate by the day, and your demands and actions are starting to go way over the line, but please don’t stop on my account. I enjoy watching Progressives self-destruct when the lies they have told come back and bite them right in the keister. I love the scrambling, and the desperation that drives it, from the people who have spun all this garbage. The Progressive mantra is: if you can’t beat your opponent with facts….LIE! What a juvenile action to engage in. Adieu.
