Prove Him Wrong

I love how all the GOP talking heads are getting their tails all puffed up about Harry Reid’s tale of Mitt Romney not paying taxes for ten years.

On the Sunday talk shows, Republicans expressed outrage over Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-NV) unsubstantiated claim that Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in 10 years, flatly accusing the Senate majority leader of lying.

On ABC’s “This Week,” an incensed Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called Reid a “dirty liar,” saying he “complains about people with money but lives in the Ritz Carlton here down the street.”

“It’s ridiculous, it’s wrong, it’s untrue, and it’s just going to hurt the president,” he said of the claim, accusing President Obama of inciting “division and hatred.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Reid’s accusation “is so out of bounds.”

“I think he’s lying about his statement — knowing something about Romney’s [taxes],” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I think he’s created an issue here. I think he’s making things up at a time when the country is just about to fall apart.”

On CBS’ “Face The Nation,” Virginia’s Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell called Reid’s charge “reckless and slanderous.”

Oh my ears and whiskers; oh my stars and garters. How dreadful to hear unsubstantiated rumors and innuendo, and you know it has to be coming from that gay secret Muslim who was born in Kenya.

Instead of calling Harry Reid all those names, there’s one simple way to prove him wrong and put an end to all this out of bounds reckless and slanderous dirty lying that is inciting division and hatred: release the tax returns. End of story, and we can go back to arguing about chicken.
