Ezra Klein: 'I'm inclined to think Reid is lying about Romney's tax returns'

Note to Sen. Harry Reid: When even liberal Washington Post columnist Ezra Klein is calling you a (probable) liar, it’s not a good sign.

    Reid is Right as Rain …and Willard is all Wet.

    ‘Cause Americans have a RIGHT to see the tax returns

    of anyone who wants to be their President!

    NO if’s, …No and’s, ….and NO big fat butt’s about it!

    Confession is good for the soul Mitt….. assuming you have one.

    So Relax, Repent, and Release your Returns, Mr. Romney …OR…

    just go back to playing with your pet dancing ponies.

    No problem. We’ll understand. Unless …perhaps ….just perhaps

    …you’re HIDING something, dear Willard? Just asking.

    P.S. By the way, Mr. Mitt: just how DID you manage to stuff all those millions into your

    tax-loophole IRA account?… while the REST of us poor smucks have strict limits?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    And you want even MORE tax cuts for you and your rich buddies, Mitt?

    WHAT GALL! These fat cats aren’t satisfied – they want it ALL …EVERYTHING!!

    But tell me Mitt, just how MANY cars and houses can you hog?

    And just how MANY silver spoons can you stuff into your smirking mouth?

    Mitt baby, you can fool some of the people some of the time,

    but -please- take my advice: IF you just want to run for dog-catcher

    then KEEP your precious tax returns, and clean off your car roof.

    OTHERWISE, if you wanna be our President, THEN PUT UP,

    …or shut up and go away ….preferably BEFORE the convention.

    The super-rich think that they have the God-given right to do anything

    they want in this great country -while the REST of us get screwed!

    ENOUGH!!! The divine right of kings ended a long long time ago Mitt.

    And so should your sorry excuse for a candidacy.

    Nothing personal, guy. Really.

    Rich, arrogant, power-hungry Republicans are people too!

    It’s just their “culture” that bothers me I guess. …..As you are so fond of saying.

      Sounds like you have anger issue dude, take a pill.

    • journogal

      if he had not paid taxes in 10 years, why are we just hearing about it? Why did this issue not come up in 2008?
      And you don’t think Democrats are full of rich, arrogant, power-hungry people like Pelosi, Reid, Kerry, et. al? You don’t think Obama is rich?

      • http://twitter.com/RealLarryBaron Larry Baron

        Yeah, like the IRS would not have noticed.

        • Owen007

          Heck, based on what Adelson’s currently going through, you better believe Obama would sic the IRS on Romney if there was any truth to this nonsense.

          When you get down to it, it’s like Reid is cribbing from public statements made by Anthony Weiner. “I didn’t put those pictures up. Someone hacked my account… only I can’t prove it. It happened, but I won’t go to the police… but not because falsely reporting a crime is a, well, crime. For some other reason. Yeah.”

      You guys remember Stan, right? He’s the one who pushed for transparency in college transcripts, birth certificates and attendance records at Jeremiah Wright’s place of worship?

        If there was any problem with Romney’s tax returns, you can bet the Obama team would already have them out for all to see. Remember when Obama was running for the Senate? A few ‘sealed’ divorce documents showed up mysteriously!

      Stan, last time I checked, the US Constitution sets the requirements to be president, not you or Harry Reid.

    • Cyborg0012

      Harry Reid made close to 10 mill on a salary not even close to that for decades. How do you suppose that happened. And Queen Nancy Queeg refuse to release hers. When you become interested about the corruption among those you vote for, get back to us.

    • Shawn

      Done yet, maybe not you gas bag libtard

    • Owen007

      The irony is, you’re defending and echoing comments originally given by a rather rich Senator that refuses to release his own tax returns.

      But that’s different… for some reason… that no one on the left can explain… at all. *cough*

      Drink the koolaid Stan……sip it….that’s right….good boy…….now close your eyes and I’ll tell you what to believe, its way to much trouble to think on your own….

    • louisiana_mom

      Romney has been in politics since the 1990s, do you seriously think someone who has run for as many offices as he has wouldn’t pay their federal income tax? And none of his other opponents noticed? The IRS didn’t notice? Really? If you truly believe that, I have some swamp land I’d like to sell you…

    • cheongyei

      Stan, you are the power-hungry one, demanding to see something that would not make a bit of difference in your November vote. Romney voters don’t care about his returns, they care about Øbyango’s threat to America.

      Maybe we need a tax on cut-and-paste

      Did Sock Puppet release his?

    Did anyone read Stan’s rant all the way through? I couldn’t take it beyond his first series of ….

    A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    • MikenPA

      Negative. I have far better ways of wasting my time rather than read the rantings of an obvious lunatic. I would suggest the authorities keep an eye on him and make sure he is unarmed.

    of course Reid is lying. you can tell a Demoncrat is lying whenever their mouth is open.

  • Streetiebird

    I thought we were supposed to vet the candidates, why is everyone opposed to Romney releasing his tax returns? If he paid no taxes in some of the last years we should know it shouldn’t we?

  • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

    Has Harry Reid conclusively denied yet that he is entangled in any way with the bomb threat at Walter Reed Hospital?

  • Streetiebird

    How are college records part of becoming president? You’re letting FOX guide the narrative here. No president has ever released their college transcripts, none. Some may have been leaked or otherwise discovered, but it is not a part of being president.

    But sure, use the false equivalency argument that FOX has set up for you so kindly. It’s just a diversion from the huge questions surrounding the Romney tax returns, but by all means, make it about Obama.

  • doowleb

    But why did this President have his records sealed? Do you maintain that that is also standard practice?

  • Streetiebird

    You mean the Presidential records from AFTER he entered office, yes he did seal those, but everything from BEFORE he took office is not sealed. I assume you are referring to Executive Order 13489, but you misunderstood it.
