If you’re keeping score…

Hmmm. So what’s the situation? And who’s ahead?

Well, here’s the deal:

Without proof, Harry Reid SUGGESTS that Mitt Romney hasn’t paid federal taxes in 10 years.

Without proof, Romney SUGGESTS that the White House is behind Reid’s insinuation.

So, it’s a scoreless tie at this point.



  1. Some news outlets are confusing what Harry Reid said. He did not say Romney paid no taxes. He said Romney did not pay his taxes. 2 very different accusations.

    Reid went first he gets a -1.

    Romney might actually be right given this:


    The words, “FELONS” and “TAX RECORDS,” are displayed onscreen for at least six seconds, so the Obama campaign wants to make sure its viewers see the words.

    Given the title of the ad–and the subject–the ad wants viewers to consider that Mitt Romney might not be releasing more tax returns because, the Obama campaign is suggesting, he might be a felon. (Watch the ad here.)

    This isn’t the first time the Obama campaign has accused Romney of possibly being a felon. Last month, Stephanie Cutter, an Obama deputy campaign manager, said that Romney is either a liar or a felon.

  2. If Mitt wants to spend the next month whining about being asked to live up to a standard of honesty established by his own father, Harry Reid will buy him a gold-plated microphone and rent the stadium.

  3. This is a joke and the Romney camp is looking like amateurs. Unlike multiple candidates before him, Romney refuses to release his taxes, something so basic that his refusal must mean he clearly has something to hide. Or, there’s something so damaging in there that he’s afraid it could cost him the election. Even GOP leaders are urging to him to do it. My guess is that he’s paid very little in taxes, used lots of questionable tax dodges and that the campaign is worried it will cost him with independents.

    To people like expdoc, it’s OK to keep the birther nonsense going but asking Romney to release his taxes is pushing it?

  4. The birther stuff is crazy.

    The push for Romney’s taxes is crazy. The taxes were filed and the accounting was presumably legal.

    No, actually it’s a big distraction from the real issues the country faces. Just another skirmish in the class warfare battle.
