People can’t forget Harry Reid bragging to the press that “the war is lost.” It was a despicable, anti-American thing to say. He said it repeatedly. He said it without hesitation or regret. Frankly, America is worse off having Harry Reid still in office.
They’re worse off because he’s a despicable, discusting human being who won’t hesitate in doing a hatchet job without the slightest bit of proof.
His latest disgusting act was accusing Mitt Romney of not paying his taxes for an entire decade. He said that he’d heard that from an anonymous Democrat who invested with Bain:
Reid suggested that Romney’s decision to withhold tax information would bar him from ever earning Senate confirmation to a Cabinet post. Then, Reid recalled a phone call his office received about a month ago from “a person who had invested with Bain Capital,” according to The Huffington Post.
Reid said the person told him: “Harry, he didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years.”
“He didn’t pay taxes for 10 years! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” Reid told HuffPo. “But obviously he can’t release those tax returns. How would it look?”
First, it’s doubtful that this confidential informant exists. If the dirtbag exists, however, then he’s a gutless wimp for not coming forward and making the accusations in public.
Whether the disgusting dirtbag exists or not, Sen. Reid shouldn’t make those unsubstantiated allegations public because it’s impossible, short of hacking into the IRS website, to verify the voracity of these allegations.
What’s disgusting is that President Obama’s campaign hasn’t criticized Sen. Reid for making these unsubstantiated (and unsubstantiatable) allegations. Their silence implies that they approve of Sen. Reid’s accusations. Their silence in this situation should earn them nothing but unlimited derision and criticism.
I don’t want Sen. Reid to apologize. I want Republican senators to make his life a living hell before running him out of the Senate. I want Republicans to torment him, call him out for what he is: a dirtbag who won’t hesitate to make unsubstantiated allegations.
The other thing that I’d recommend them to do is use Sen. Reid’s disgusting outburst to raise money to defeat as many Democrats as possible this fall. The best punishment for Sen. Reid short of running him out of the Senate is to turn him into the Minority Leader.
It’s time for Republicans to take the gloves off. If they continue acting like gentlemen and ladies, Sen. Reid, Sen. Durbin, Sen. Schumer and other notorious hatchetmen won’t have an incentive to stop being hatchetmen.
Let’s hope the GOP grows a spine ASAP. Let’s hope they carry out a ruthless vendetta against this dirtbag from Nevada.
Finally, here’s my (rhetorical) question to Harry Reid: Sir, have you no shame?
Unfortunately, we know the answer to that question is no, he doesn’t have any remorse or shame.
