Finally some very necessary blunt talk.
Surrogates for President Obama aren’t repudiating Sen. Harry Reid’s unsubstantiated charge that Mitt Romney may not have paid taxes for the past decade, while a backer for Romney called the Senate majority leader a “dirty liar.”
Asked on the Sunday talk shows about the Senate majority leader’s claim that Romney may have not paid taxes for the last decade, Obama surrogates turned the issue back on the Massachusetts governor for refusing to release more than his last two years of tax returns.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus retorted that Reid is a “dirty liar” in a separate interview on ABC’s This Week for accusing Romney of not paying taxes.
“As far as Harry Reid is concerned … I’m not going to respond to a dirty liar who hasn’t filed a single page of tax returns himself, complains about people with money but lives in the Ritz Carlton here (in Washington) down the street,” Priebus said.
