It’s time that the Senate ran Sen. Reid out of office. Of course, Senate Democrats will protect Sen. Reid because their highest priority is maintaining power, not doing what’s right.
If Democrats won’t do the right thing, then it’s up to the American people to defeat them this November.
For instance, when ‘moderate’ Sen. Klobuchar stays silent about Sen. Reid’s disgusting behavior, her actions say she isn’t willing to take a principled stand against a disgusting human being. That’s all the reason Minnesotans should need to fire her this November. It isn’t like she has any accomplishments during her time in office. (Except if you count her voting to raise Medtronics tax bill by $175,000,000 per year as an accomplishment.)
Jon Tester, Sherrod Brown, Tim Kaine, Claire McCaskill, Bill Nelson and others should pay the price for not criticizing Sen. Reid’s disgusting statements, too.
It’s bad enough that Sen. Reid made the initial accusations without a bit of proof. What’s worse is his newest statements:
On Wednesday, Reid stuck to his story, and broadened it.
“I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination,” Reid said in a telephone call with Nevada reporters. “I have had a number of people tell me that.”
Asked to elaborate on his sources, Reid declined. “No, that’s the best you’re going to get from me.”
“I don’t think the burden should be on me,” Reid said. “The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?”
Talk about chutzpah. Sen. Reid makes statements that haven’t been substantiated by anyone willing to make these accusations public. When Sen. Reid’s honesty is challenged, albeit not by GOP senators or by the allegedly MSM, his reaction is that he shouldn’t have to prove he isn’t lying through his teeth.
Sen. Reid is a disgusting individual who isn’t worried about proving whether he’s telling the truth.
If GOP senators stay silent or make statements like this, they’ll send the signal to progressives that they don’t have an incentive to stop their smear campaigns:
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said Wednesday that he did not see Romney’s tax returns as a “relevant issue” and that if people want more disclosure, “they should pass a law to make it that way.”
Talk about wimpy. Sen. Rubio could turn this into a media disaster for the Democrats if he issued this statement:
Sen. Reid’s disgusting and unsubstantiated accusations fit a pattern with Sen. Reid. His defeatist statement that “The war is lost” demoralized our troops while they fought bravely. His unsubstantiated allegation from a mystery investor who doesn’t have the courage to make these accusations in the light of day calls into question whether this person exists.
It’s time for Sen. Reid to put up or shut up or be held accountable for his disgraceful actions. Sen. Reid won’t pass a budget. Sen. Reid won’t accept responsibility for verifying the identity of this mystery investor.
While Sen. Reid sits on his thumbs or makes wild allegations, Republicans in the Senate and the House continue putting forward proposals to dig this nation out of the mess this administration and Sen. Reid have kept us in.
It’s time for Sen. Reid to prove he isn’t lying through his teeth. If he brings this Bain investor forward, then it’s a debatable issue. If he continues making these allegations without offering proof, it’s reasonable to think that Sen. Reid is lying.
UPDATE: This has the feel of Rathergate. Disgraced ‘journalist’ Dan Rather tried accusing George Bush of not fulfilling his service to the Texas Air National Guard during the 2000 campaign.
When that fell through, he waited until 2004 to run the story. The fledgling blogosphere quickly discredited the article, leading to Rather admitting that the documents were “fake but accurate.”
Is this Harry Reid’s “Rathergate moment”? I can’t rule it out.
