Romney Calls on Dirty Harry Reid to Come Clean (Video)

Mitt Romney called on Harry Reid to reveal the source to his smear today.
Reid claims that Romney has not paid his taxes in 10 years.

FOX News reported, via Free Republic:

Mitt Romney called on Harry Reid Tuesday to reveal the source for his claim that the Republican presidential candidate has not paid taxes for 10 years, stepping up pressure as two major fact-check sites ruled Reid had no basis for the “incendiary” allegation.

Romney, in an interview with Fox News, said he doesn’t believe Reid has a credible source but urged the Senate Democratic leader to reveal who it is.

“I don’t really believe that he’s got any kind of a credible source,” Romney said. “I don’t know who gave him this line of reasoning, whether it came from the White House or the DNC or a staffer, but he ought to say where it came from, and then we can find out whether that person has any credibility. I know they don’t.”

He said Reid also has “lost a lot of credibility.”

It’s time to come clean, Dirty Harry.

    Why is Romney’s fighting with Harry Reid instead of the guy he’s running against?

  • john b

    “He [Roney] said Reid also has ‘lost a lot of credibility.'”
    Technically, not true.
    Reid lacks all credibility and is a sign and symptom of sick Democrats everywhere.
    His dementia/psychosis/whatever it is IS noticeable to ALL people. given this, the fact that other Democrats go along with him in the Senate — and choose him as Majority Leader — indicates they suffer the same disease or are too cowardly to stand up to him.

  • derpHoft

    That’s one way to do it Mitt. Another way to prove Harry is a liar is to just release your tax returns.

  • Reids statments reflects on the credibility of all Democrats in the Senate who have chosen him as their leader.

    Time to call for obama to release all his records, including the Columbia admissions documents showing his as a foreign student, and why he lost his law license, etc.

    Time to call for Holder to go to jail for not releasing subpoenaed records.

    Time to quit screwing around and get tough on this administration’s crimes.

    I WISH they’d put me to sleep!

    Here instead, Romney’s falling into the very trap that Reid was attempting! There should be no “Tell me who told you” etc., etc. There should be, “The Obama campaign is simply making a feeble attempt to distract from the dismal economy that they’ve created. Are you better off now than you were four years ago?” (or whatever).

    It shames me to think that Reid claims to be Mormon.

  • Monkey Wrench

    This is just more amateur hour from the Romney campaign. First of all he’s fighting the wrong guy. He’s running against Obama not Reid. Second, this keeps the news cycle focused on Reid v Romney and why won’t Romney release his taxes. The focus should be on the terrible job numbers and Obama’s failed economy.

    The verdict is in on Obama. People want to replace him. All Romney has to do is prove that he is up to the job of being President. Romney should be at least 10 points ahead right now. Instead he is losing in almost all of the battleground states. Romney may be a good businessman, but he is a horrible politician. If he doesn’t turn things around quickly, he is going to lose.

  • Blue Moon

    All dirty Harry is going to do is say that he really meant Mitt didn’t pay taxes from the time he was born until the age of 10 years. End of story. This man is despicable.

  • Jill

    Is Mitt really this gullible? He was doing fine, but now he’s decided to get into a pissing contest with Harry Reid

    Mitt Romney had better learn that there is no point in responding. Obama’s minions team up with the MSN every week to create a new line of attack against Romney. Last time it was Bain, now it’s his taxes. By responding, all Mitt is doing is giving it life.

    The Dems are deliberately trying to make Mitt Romney have these angry reactions, so they and the MSM can keep talking about it.

    The best thing is to just ignore it. Let the Dems keep talking about Romney’s taxes. Romney needs to take the high road by refusing to let the Dems control the narrative, and talking the issues Americans care about.

  • Robodog7

    Romney: ” The IRS knows I’ve paid my taxes, that is all that matters. End of discussion.”

    Indeed. Zzzzzzz………..

    This game is rigged, and the public is deceived, and the rest of us are just playing The Waiting Game, at this point.

    94 days to go, then the SHTF, and All Hell Breaks Loose.

    Even the White House is distancing themselves from Harry. Mitt’s taking his eye off the ball. Tell the media he’ll release his tax returns when Obama releases his documents. At that point, people will see how Reid is slandering him, at which point Mitt says he’ll take legal action to protect his name. Watch how fast Harry backpedals then.

  • lizzy84

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…………………Hey Mitt, how about running an ad on this story instead?

  • mcc

    Can we settle this once and for all?

    Every time questions go off message to slime BO’s opponent, the response MUST be accompanied by mention of an Obama failure/corruption. There will ALWAYS be a relevant one. The list is mind-boggling..besides, they accuse the innocent of what they do themselves.

    NEVER give them anything they want. It’ll be used for evil. It’s all they know.

    Make NO deals with them. Trust them to play fair?! Think of it like their wanting to abolish gun ownership. The good guys – their enemies – will dutifully turn in their guns. But, ha hah! the bad guys – their boys – won’t. So, in this case, only a sucker would think that papers they agree to turn over – if they did at all – would be anything but FAKE. And good luck even when they’re proven to be forgeries. Deals are LOSERS with this crowd. Every time.

  • BarbaraS

    I wish Romney would just laugh at him and say “poor harry, he can’t help it”. Reid has been picked to spew all these lies because his tenure ends Jan 2017. That’s quite a way away and he hopes people will forget by then and they probably will. It is sickening to realize we will be stuck with this POS for the next four and a half years. Hopefully, not as majority leader though.

  • BarbaraS

    OTOH, Nevada evidently doesn’t care about graft, corruption or lies.

    What a terrible interview. How could Romney have not seen the ad before sitting down with Cameron? It never ceases to amaze me how uninformed a lot of these candidates are when asked about things that everybody paying even half attention knows about. Do they think they can get out of answering by saying they haven’t seen it? It makes them look out of touch and dumb.

    And it’s pretty obvious the campaign has a new focus group tested sound bite to get out: “jobs and wages”. Wages? Come on, Mitt. Wages? Way to sound like an out of touch rich guy. Jeez.

    Romney’s responses are waaaaaaaaaaay too tepid. I mean, why talk about wanting to find out about the credibility of Reid’s source. Just cut to the chase and say he’s lying and that he wants to find out who the source is because that person (and Reid) are perpetuating malicious lies. Threaten to sue for defamation of character, for God’s sake. As for a comment on Obama’s superPAC ad that essentially calls Romney a murder, where’s Romney’s outrage?!* This is nuts. We already tried the polite statesman approach with McCain. It didn’t work because our opponents are thugs! WAKE UP ROMNEY! And hit back. Hard. Needs more biting language and more sharp tone.

    Oh, and while I’m ranting, how about addressing national security sometimes! We can nail Obama on point after point. Romney’s sticking with a couple of narrow areas and doing so in a lukewarm way.

  • SurlyMonk

    They have accused Romney of being the most secretive man or candidate ever. If put to a vote, the American people would most likely want to see everything that Obama has hidden or forged from his past. He could begin with his college transcripts, the real birth certificate, the documents on Fast and Furious, all communications between Obama and Holder regarding the lawsuits or legal chicanery involving Adelson, voter ID, and the attempt in Ohio to disenfranchise the military vote. Then he can explain how Geitner didn’t pay his taxes and how he screwed non union workers out of their retirement. Most secretive candidate ever, indeed. Romney releasing his income taxes would only increase the number of lies and smears coming from the Obama campaign. Harry Reid is a sick joke. No honor, no scruples, no core values. The Democrat Party lies, cheats, and steals in oder to stay in and increase their power over others. Machiavelli pales in comparison.

    Time to shine the SEARCHLIGHT on Dingy Harry’s crooked real estate deals in Nevada. Rush posed a good question – ” How did Harry amass a 10 million dollar fortune on his salary of 190k per year??” Reminds me of the movie “The Pink Panther” — when Peter Sellers is accused by press of being the crafty burglar ( his wife’s furs and jewels) – he responds ” She is very frugal, she saves her household budget”.

    Romney drives me crazy the way he phrases things. It’s always so round about and way to long. Instead of asking where Reid got his information he should be ridiculing Reid for thinking anyone would believe such a cockamamie lie.

    Thank God Obama is such a treasonous bastard or we wouldn’t have a chance.

  • Romney should agree to release his tax returns just as soon as Obama releases his college transcripts.

  • befuddled

    The rope a dope strategy worked. Reid led the media to talk about Romney for a week, instead of what is really on the line–Obama’s record.

    Instead of questioning Obama about which is more important, teacher’s unions or students, the lame stream are giddy about Romney and those mysterious tax returns, which no one but people already committed to voting for Obama care about.I want to know why Mr. Black president has allowed black unemployment to rise to 20%?Why does our black president continuously side with teacher unions across the country that want to stop the tuition voucher program?It’s almost as if votes and money from unions are more important to our president than education reform.

    “But, as Jindal knows, it’s hard for Louisiana students to get great educations when the state forces them to attend particular schools regardless of quality, expense, or family fit. And Louisiana’s schools are some of the worst in the country: the state ranks 49th in student performance on the well-respected National Assessment of Educational Progress. Nearly half the state’s fourth graders essentially can’t read, for example, while more than a quarter can barely add and subtract.”

    I’m sure someone in the media would ask the president about this, if he had not stopped taking questions from the press corps. Apparently the greatest orator of our time is actually so gaffe prone that Valerie Jarett decided that he shouldn’t be making any unscripted speeches or answering any unvetted questions prior to November.
