The latest on Harry Rumormonger Reid…
After tripling and quartering down on the BIG LIE (senate floor campaigning cowardice) that Mitt Romney is a tax cheat, Recede Reid hasn’t been heard from. But, aah… Yesterday, he sent one of his aides out to furiously fan the flames of fiction. It didn’t go so well:
After days of silence on Harry Reid’s disputed claim that Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes for a decade, a top aide finally spilled details on the supposed source of the allegation — only to issue a wholesale retraction of those details by Thursday evening.
Reid aide Jose Parra first made the claims in an interview on Los Angeles’ KTLK radio, defending his boss’ decision to trumpet the tax charge last week on the Senate floor and explaining a bit about the source.
“This person is an investor in Bain Capital, a Republican also, and somebody … who has been dealing with Romney’s company for a long, long time and he has direct knowledge on this,” Parra said.
Parra’s statement comes after Romney challenged fib-squibber Harry to “put up or shut up.”
Stoolpigeon Parra backpedals…
However, after some media attention on Parra’s radio interview, Parra issued a statement taking those remarks back.
“I do not know the party affiliation of the source, how long he invested with Bain, or his relationship to Romney …” he said.
Runaway Reid… No surprise here (because he’s on vacation, far away from the protection of the Senate floor!):
Asked Friday about the mix-up, a Reid aide told FoxNews.com the senator “does not have any plans to reveal further information about the identity of his source.”
What a cacophony of calumny and cowardice coming from Obama’s defenders!
Chicken-hearted Harry is holed up somewhere among the cacti in Nevada hoping he won’t choke on the crow he’ll soon be eating.
Hey, Harry. YOU haven’t released your tax information, the unemployment rate in Nevada is still at 11.6% , and Las Vegans are suffering under a 12.6% jobless rate. No matter how much you try to distract, unemployment across America is at 8.3%. And, what about your complete and utter failure to pass a Senate budget in almost 1200 days? What are you hiding? If you’re such a smart guy, why don’t you figure out how to put a budget together?
Senator Secret, if you’re such a lover of the TRUTH, listen to this: Your job performance stinks and you are sorely lacking in ethics. A private-sector employer would have fired you long ago.
