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.

    GS: “Do you think Harry Reid’s a dirty liar?”

    RP: “I just SAID it… .”

    I can’t tell you how much I love that!!

    (And there better not be any back-pedalling from that statement later on.)

    Speaking of which, I see Romney’s just picked up the endorsement of the original Dirty Harry.

    By the way, I think it’s worth mentioning that Harry Reid has no penis. He lost it ten years ago in an unfortunate accident involving a McCormick reaper at a campaign stop in a Elko. Seems Reid tried to demonstrate that he was just another ordinary Joe who knows how to work the farm equipment. Fortunately John Edwards was tagging along and got him a big settlement; that’s how Reid funded his campaign. And that’s why, in all the thousands of hours Reid has spent on camera, he never appears without his pants. Think about it. Have you ever seen Reid without pants? Very suspicious, hrmmm? Reid, are you trying to deny this? Are you going to challenge this testimony, and dismiss a mountain of circumstantial evidence? What are you hiding, Harry? Show us your member!

    (Do I need to explain that the foregoing is a parody of an unsubstantiated charge, and not the ramblings of a pervert? That’s the idea, anyway.)

    One reason that I will never be completely in the Tea Party’s corner is the fact that they were responsible for nominating Sharon Angle to run against Hallelujiah Harry in 2010. If the GOP had nominated ANYONE in Nevada with a triple digit I.Q. Harry Reid would be at the old Senators Home right now. Instead they nominated the only person in the state dumber than the Scion of Searchlight. The American people have to pay the price with his continued presence in Washington. Sickening. But that’s what you get. If we want to win this war we can’t beat something with nothing.

      Just saw Priebus on Fox Business this Monday morn. Varney asked him if he wanted to take those words back. Priebus said: “No. I just can’t think of anything stronger to use.” 🙂 This is a very good sign.

    Reince Priebus… you’re no John Sununu.

    I sure hope we get to see & hear more straight talk from the GOP & other Conservatives.

  9. geezee says:

    How about this answer, Reince? : “I was *told* that Harry Reid is a dirty liar. It’s upon Harry Reid to PROVE that he is not a dirty liar. And oh by the way, anything I say to George Stephanopoulas has immunity.”

  10. Maynard says:

    In retrospect, I’m thinking that the claim that Romney paid no tax is probably with respect to the period between ages 1 and 11, before he got his Socialist Security number. Maybe that’s what Reid meant?
