did DK just call Harry Reid a liar?

We will as soon as you quit hating President Obama because he is black. Get over it, the 1960's are done with and people of color have civil rights.

Wasn't John Kerry at least in the same league as Romney money-wise? It's not about jealousy. It's about Romney's inability to empathize with your average American.

If Rmoney wants any 'sympathy', tell him to look it up in the dictionary. He will find it between 'shiat' and 'syphilis'.

When the Republican defense is "It's not fair to throw accusations without evidence!" the response must be "Here are your accusations of the past few years without evidence." Thing is, the Republicans say that Bill and Barak did things that they cannot prove that the absolutely didn't (absence of evidence is not evidence of absence), the Democrats are accusing Mitt of NOT doing something, and all he needs to do is prove he did.

He knows the heartbreak of the average American. I mean, his dancing horsey that cost more per year than most houses didn't get a medal in the Olympics.

There were two horses ass Romneys in Europe this week, and they both embarassed America.

Well the article used a few too many points at once, they need to leak them slowly over a few weeks to make them more believable.

Republicans no longer see reason, just emotion. They feel offended by the accusation that Mitt didn't pay his taxes. In response, TDK responds with the offebsive accuations and says "Take yer lumps, cupcake. What, you cant eat what you dish out?"

If the Romney camp came out proving that the Dems are wrong about Mitts taxes, then it would be a birther style attack. They cant seem to do that though, and I wonder why....

The problem with the Left using this tactic--aside from it being wrong, cheap, lazy and destructive--is that liberals tend to be reality-based.

Yea but Reid is minority leader. No equivalent Republicans were saying any of that stuff as far as I know. Of course the difference is that this is probably true.

Mitt will release his tax returns when Obama releases his real birth certificate.

I think somebody has Dan Rathered Harry Reid, and the fallout is going to be hilarious.

I think most Dems feel the same way. That's why you don't see them going all-in on this.

THIS. We're not believing crazy things for no reason. We're believing something awful because Romney won't give us ANY proof. He didn't even admit his tax rate was so low until a couple days before he released 2010.

Romney is hiding something big. Something so horrible he'd be better off suffering all this damage to his reputation.

So you have NO memory of people wanting Obama's tax returns too?

Must be fun to live in fantasy land.

Here in reality, people want to see tax return for ALL candidate, super wealthy or not. And yes, when they refuse, people get suspicious that there is something to hide.

But if you want to blame it on jealousy, knock yourself out.

I read it perfectly well. It provides no evidence to back up Reid's baseless accusation and makes numerous attempts to equate Reid's accusations with other baseless accusations.

We get it. They're baseless accusations.

I mean, if Reid thinks that there is actually wrong doing and has evidence to it then he's not a journalist. He can provide that evidence. Why doesn't he?

Hell, if Reid has been made privy to Romney's private tax records then Reid is an accomplice to a crime. I demand Reid immediately prove he is innocent.
 
2012-08-03 11:45:09 AM  
Republicans are worried. The FARK independents almost never come out in these threads to defend Romney and now they are.

They know this has a good chance to make him unelectable.

I guess Romney could put the whole thing to rest by releasing his tax returns.

It's not "baseless" someone that knowledgeable about it is telling him this. That is not "baseless".


I mean, if Reid thinks that there is actually wrong doing and has evidence to it then he's not a journalist. He can provide that evidence. Why doesn't he?


He has never said anything Romney is doing is illegal.


Hell, if Reid has been made privy to Romney's private tax records then Reid is an accomplice to a crime. I demand Reid immediately prove he is innocent.


He hasn't, he never said he has access to it. Stop making up bullshiat. What you are saying is a baseless claim

Didn't Mitt pay the salaries of a lot of people? If so, he paid taxes. Did he buy a bunch of stuff? If so, he paid taxes. Does he own property? If so, he paid taxes.
I get it though. He clearly is not paying a fair share.

Show us the tax returns!!11

I dont get it, he will be a Republican hero when it shows he used every loop hole in the book to pay almost nothing in taxes.

But then he will be part of the 50% who pay no income taxes?

I dont know what to think. =(

He paid people's salaries out of his personal bank account?
