Senator Harry Reid doesn’t comprehend personal character

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, trying to see how fast he can reach the lowest human level on record by criticizing Mitt Romney’s faith when he said that Romney “sullied” the Mormon faith, and that, in Nevada, voters would “understand that he is not the face of Mormonism.”

This is the same guy who citicized Romney for not paying any taxes for the last 10 years based on nothing but Reid’s word, a worthless commodity.

When Romney’s tax reports showed he paid almost two million in taxes, Reid switched to his new tactic - criticizing Romney’s character in his Mormon faith. You can’t get much lower than Harry Reid, the politician!

Excerpt:

His (Romney’s) personal commitment to helping others would be exemplary in a clergyman. It’s almost unheard of among politicians. We learned last week that Mr. Romney donated 29 percent of his income to charity in 2011, and that, over the course of the past 20 years, he has donated an average of 13.5 percent of his income — well over the 10 percent tithe that many great faiths suggest.

How much does Mr. Reid donate? We don’t know because he chooses to keep  his  tax returns private. We do know, however, that between 2000 and 2004, Mr. Obama donated about 1 percent to charity (he bumped it up to 5 percent in 2005 and to 22 percent last year).

“Lunch Bucket Joe” Biden — champion of the middle class — donated an average of $369 per year for the 10 years prior to 2008, or .03 percent of his income.

Not only has Romney been extremely charitable with his money, he has devoted his time to those (many in his church, some not) who were facing crises. He spent many hours with a 14-year-old cancer victim in the hospital. He saved a family of four from drowning when their boat capsized. When two teenagers in a Boston family were injured in a car accident, the entire Romney family showed up on Christmas Eve bearing large boxes of gifts, and a generous check for the parents. Romney also offered to pay for the boys’ college educations when they recovered. He closed Bain’s offices to search for the missing daughter of a colleague. These are but some of the many stories of personal generosity and remarkable kindness detailed in “The Real Romney” by Michael Kranish and Scott Helman, two Boston Globe reporters.

Has Mr. Reid ever done anything like that to help anyone, other than himself or his party, right or wrong? I will await the numerous inputs.

  1. What kills me is liberals think it’s just fine for Obama to spend $4M of taxpayers money on a Hawaiian vacation, but almost criminal if Romney spent $4M of HIS OWN MONEY on a vacation home.

  2. Of course Willard’s money and ego doesn’t have anything to do with his philanthropy. What a joke Ted.

      Percentage of Income is the equalizer, Steverino. Biden is a cheapskate like most liberals with their money. They are, however, very liberal with the taxpayers money!!!

  3. Harry Reid is an empty suit. He might be the dumbest Senate Majority Leader. When he speaks, he has no depth in what he says, he just speaks in sound bites. He lacks critical thinking abilities.

    If you want to see the true Harry Reid, do an internet search on “Harry Reid crooked land deals”. He has millions on using his gov’t position and influence to benefit himself on propety that he loans. He makes the allegations against Dennis Hastert look like child’s play.

    Someone who listens to or cares about anything Harry Reid says has to be almost as bright as someone who listens to or cares about anything Mitch McConnell or John Boehner says.

    This is just another one of those useless posts that have absolutely nothing of value to add to any discussion of serious issues or problems that this country has. That now makes three in a row!

  5. JRM – Boehner and McConnell are Mensa material compared to Reid and Pelosi.

    They are also people who have refused to do the jobs they were elected to do. All four of them. Together they have managed to bring the legislature to a stand still and have brought this country to the brink of another credit downgrade and massive financial ruin come January 1st. Anyone who says differently is delusional at best, completely useless at worst.

  7. That is why we need to elect fiscal conservatives, such as TEA Party members. They will work to return the Federal government back to its Constitutional limits.

    Otherwise, If Obama is re-elected, he will continue bankrupting this Country, as he tries to turn it into a Liberal nanny-State. Let me tell you this, B. Hussein Obama is no Mary Poppins!

  8. JRM,

    Throw Obama into the mix and you got agreement.

  9. JRM_CommonSense

    I’ll throw Obama into the mix and raise you two. You throw Romney and yourself into the mix.
