[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]When Democrat Harry Reid was the Senate Majority Leader, he did not hold back in attacking those perceived as political opponents and a threat to his party’s goals. Whether it was illegally using government resources to attack the Koch Brothers or attacking them on the Senate floor, Reid say nothing wrong with his dirty tactics. He also made clear during a recent appearance on CNN that he proudly stands by outright lying about Mitt Romney when he accused him of not paying his taxes while delivering remarks on the Senate floor.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Despite the lavish lifestyle the Obamas lead and the massive wealth they have accumulated even though Obama has been in political office since his days of being a community organizer in Chicago, the Left deemed it necessary in 2012 to attack Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential candidate, about the wealth he has accumulated as a hard working, goal oriented businessman.
But, they didn’t stop there. Aside from attacking his wealth, they also questioned his character by accusing him, as Harry Reid did on the Senate floor, of not paying his taxes.
Reid had no proof of such an accusation. The fact of the matter is that he didn’t want or need one. The Left, including those in the media, would take Reid’s accusation and run with it in an effort to tarnish the reputation of Mitt Romney and fire up the “1%” argument that they were building up in order to tear him down.
Never mind that at Christmas, the Obamas live like royalty in massive and luxurious rental home in Hawaii for 17 days, and that is just one example of their extravagant, seemingly never ending vacations, Reid would work to paint Romney as insensitive and greedy. To Reid, as to most Leftists, the end justifies the means.
From the Senate floor in 2012, then Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said regarding Romney, “Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t.”
He had no basis for such an accusation. He had no proof, no records, no reason to make such claims.
When asked about it by CNN’s Dana Bash, Reid justified lying on the Senate floor and smearing Romney’s name by saying, “Well, they can call it whatever they want. Romney didn’t win, did he?”
After over a quarter of a century as a Senator, the dirty deeds reign of Harry Reid will soon end since he recently announced that he will not be running for re-election. Will whoever succeeds him from Nevada, regardless of party, represent the state with the same dirty, Mafioso style that Harry Reid has been known for?
