Nancy Pelosi Doubles Down … ‘It Is A Fact’ That Somebody Told Harry Reid About Romney Not Paying Taxes

 

Welcome to the Nancy Pelosi – Bill Clinton semantics game. Ever wonder why we loathe politicians and why their approval ratings is below pond scum, House Minority Leader Pelosi has much to do with it. Sadly, the Democrats have decided to play gutter politics.  However, these are Barack Obama campaign approved gutter politics …

In a perfect example of water seeking its own level, Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defends Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his comment that Mitt Romney had not paid taxes in 10 years. but in this case the water is more pond scum. Did you catch what she said? Its a fact that some one told Reid that Romney had not paid taxes, not that it is a fact that Romney did not pay taxes. Sleazy politics at its worse. We knew because Obama could not run on his record this would be one of the worst low ankle biting campaigns ever, but this one will be hard to challenge, EVER!

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) fired back at Republicans accusing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) of lying about a Bain Capital investor telling him that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes in 10 years. They don’t know what they’re talking about, Pelosi says.

“Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact,” Pelosi told The Huffington Post in a Sunday interview. “Whether he did or not can easily be disposed of: Mitt Romney can release his tax returns and show whether he paid taxes.”

Both Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus came out swinging against Reid on Sunday over his claims about Romney potentially not paying taxes. Asked to respond to Priebus calling Reid “a dirty liar” over the situation, Pelosi initially responded, “Who?” She went on to say that Priebus doesn’t know what he’s talking about since he wasn’t part of Reid’s conversations.

“Well he doesn’t know that,” Pelosi said. “Harry Reid is a person who is, as we know, A, is a fighter, B, he wouldn’t say this unless it was true that somebody told him that.

So if some said to a Republican that Pelosi was a tax cheat and had made money illegally from her position as Speaker of the House and Minority Leader due to her ability to get inside information, would that be a fact as well? BTW Harry, I was told that you did not pay them either, I think you have to show your taxes as well. Isn’t it rather comical and typical that Dingy Harry refuses to provide his tax returns while calling for others to do so. Put up or shut up you hypocrite!

All this while Democrats refuse to talk about the economy and jobs and just play slight of hand political games.

      Obama Got Worst Grades in Harvard History — and It’s Up to Him to Prove He Didn’t
      August 02, 2012

      RUSH: I got a call from a guy at Harvard who claimed that Obama’s got the lowest grades out of anybody who went there and didn’t even go to class sometimes, and the professors covered for him. …

      What do you mean the burden is on me to prove it? I don’t have to prove anything here. Look, the burden is on Obama. He’s the one that I’ve alleged got the worst grades in the history of Harvard. It’s up to Obama to prove this. It’s up to Obama. So we need the transcripts.

      In my opinion this woman and Harry are about the most two most sleezy people in politics. Maybe more than Barry and Joe.

      RE: “So if some said to a Republican that Pelosi was a tax cheat and had made money illegally from her position as Speaker of the House and Minority Leader due to her ability to get inside information, would “THAT” be a fact as well?”

      First of all, to be analogous, this “Republican” needs to be someone specific, as they are in the role of Reid in your scenario. There should also be a characterization of the “some[one]” who spoke to the “Republican”, as does the Reid scenario.

      Knowing the unclear manner conservative and Republican leaning people have recently had parsing English syntax, I would like a clarification what the highlighted word “THAT” is a reference to. Obvious choices would be the first action clause (some said) or the second action clause (had made money illegally), although there is the declarative clause (was a tax cheat [or cheated on their taxes]). My money is on the first clause, just like I would interpret Obama’s “you didn’t build that” quote being about the the first clause, the “roads and bridges”.

      Assuming I selected the referenced clause, I would answer maybe. This seems to be a case of here-say, which is technically unknowable. It might depend on the trustworthiness of the “Republican”, and their credibility.

      SM: LOL … “First of all, to be analogous, this “Republican” needs to be someone specific,”

      The entire problem with Reid’s sleazy smear is that the source is not specific. He has proved himself to be a complete scumbag.

      RE: “BTW Harry, I was told that you did not pay them either, I think you have to show your taxes as well.”

      As it is, not paying taxes is not illegal, if the rules are followed. Besides, there is no precedent for Senate leaders providing tax returns during non-election years (if ever), especially in relation to a Presidential candidate. I don’t see the relationship here.

      RE: “Isn’t it rather comical and typical that Dingy Harry refuses to provide his tax returns while calling for others to do so. Put up or shut up you hypocrite!”

      His actions are not at all like you state (or ask). For there to be any relevance between Reid and whoever is being asked to release tax returns, they need to be in (very) similar circumstance. If they were running for the same office, then there would be a great deal of hypocrisy for Reid.

      It reminds me of the MA Governor race, when Mitt’s opponent released her tax returns, and Mitt’s response was to call her out as her husbands returns weren’t released. Of course, this was after his Senate campaign when he asked for Kennedy’s taxes, and Romney said he would release taxes if Kennedy did. I find his changed stance in the subsequent campaign highly hypocritical.

      Also, making claims about a candidate for office does not signify any need to release your information, or do anything in particular in terms of what the claim concerns. There just is no connection in that regard to the claimer and the claimant. There must be hundreds or thousands of issues, statements, and activities for which a candidate could be criticized; and no critic needs to explain any aspect of their own existence just because they raised that issue of the candidate.

      If Steve Schmidt, McCain’s top campaign adviser, believed in 2008 that Romney’s vast wealth revealed in tax returns would be a problem … could it be that the Romney’s advisor believe likewise.

      McCain irked by blowback over Palin remark

      The Arizona Republican said he could “personally vouch” that there was nothing in Romney’s returns that would have disqualified him as a running mate.

      McCain: Palin was ‘better candidate’ than Romney
      7/7/12

      McCain received more than two decades worth of Romney’s tax returns as the former Massachusetts governor was undergoing the vetting process four years ago, far more than Romney has released publicly in the 2012 campaign. Democrats have questioned whether McCain saw something untoward in those tax returns and decided to choose Palin instead

      Steve Schmidt, McCain’s top campaign adviser in 2008, told the Huffington Post that the contents of the tax returns were not viewed as a problem for their campaign. But Romney’s vast wealth was seen as a political liability that McCain could ill afford, he said.

      RE: “Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact”

      All this information claims is that “it is a fact that Harry Reid made a true statement when he said someone told him” (about Romney.)

      Any other interpretations are mangling English language syntax and word meaning. Go ask your English teacher!
      __________________________
      SM: No kidding, really? But it is the typical Pelosi/sleazy politician double speak that she is after here. I guess it all depends on what is, is. The uproar over what Reid said isn’t that he was told by some one, that same person that he refuses to come forward with, the uproar is over the comment of not paying taxes for 10 years. Please do not insult everyone’s intelligence and your own by trying to muddle the issue.

    13. RK on August 8th, 2012 8:19 am

      Sorry to have possibly muddled the issue. :-( I think your title and article were clear, and I was actually agreeing with major aspects of its factual reporting.

      I should have but didn’t mention my reason for the comment; that it clearly seemed some comments didn’t understand the title and meaning of what Pelosi said, and could benefit from what I hoped clarified the actual statements made (from a language, not a political perspective). :-)

    14. NGBoston on August 8th, 2012 11:36 am

      #12-RK is excellent at “muddling”.

      It is also obvious, that while he is sensitive about his party affiliation and being judged by anyone, he is free to JUDGE OTHERS and paint every blogger on here with the same broad brushstrokes.

      He assumes, everyone here is a Republican for example. He assumes that if you say anything negative about President Barack Obama, then you are a racist.

      Honestly, RK- get over yourself and stop being such a hypocrite, simply because others may disagree with some of your opinions or views.

      It does not appear that you are a very open minded person after all, and so be it. But do not judge and condemn others for having their own views, some of which may just so happen to be opposite of yours.

    15. brie on August 8th, 2012 3:07 pm

      Scumbags, liars and cheats!!!D*** dirty politicians.

      Let’s see your records Obama. He can’t show them because he is not legal.

      Lies on public television insulting Americans about being successful and then says he didn’t say that! Doesn’t belong in the White House and never has!

    18. RK on August 8th, 2012 6:47 pm

      #14 – I had a well justified tirade written to respond to these baseless and improvable attacks you’ve made here, but my better senses stopped me from becoming someone like you.

      I feel sorry that you need to tear at others in frustration when you are unable to intellectually engage in decent and respectful discourse. If this is what floats your boat, I’m not going to stand in your way.

      I expect, however, to continue to post comments that use facts, proper language, and follow logic, as I see fit.

    19. brie on August 8th, 2012 11:20 pm

      Why would anyone want to vote for Obama. A half a** black that has caused nothing but disaster for our country and turmoil around the world. We need peace and good wealth for our valleys, mountains and plains not a lying snot nose who gives us nothing but hatred and monumental grief. Doesn’t deny his Muslim belief and practices non other. Illegal immigrant relatives like himself.

    20. NGBoston on August 9th, 2012 10:31 am

      #18- Oh, OK, RK. So this is why you called me a Racist, then- because I “tear at others” in frustration.

      Don’t feel sorry for me, but continue to stay in denial of your own actions.

      No problem. Your better senses apparently didn’t stop you from insulting me again by calling me unintelligent again.

      Whatever, Dude. What a hypocrite you are. I can use whatever language I want on here or anywhere regarding any topic or post.

      Maybe you can lose your Elitist attitude now and follow that logic.

      Here’s the bottom line for me, RK.

      Barack Obama sucks as President. And so don’t Bleeding Heart Liberals.

      Not that I am saying you are one, of course.

    21. RK on August 9th, 2012 6:57 pm

      As a matter of fact, the only use of the word “racist” on this thread is from you, and the word “racial” appears nowhere.

      Are you confused as to where you are?
      __________

      According to accepted English syntax and word definitions; the phrase “you are unable to intellectually engage in decent and respectful discourse” does not infer or imply that a person is “unintelligent”, just that for whatever reason, they were unable to act in an intellectual manner at some point.

      Therefore, you are incorrect in your comment. These are not my rules, by common within the language structure, so please take any criticism of this matter to those involved.

    22. NGBoston on August 10th, 2012 11:34 am

      #21- RK- Just because you didn’t use the word Racist, does not mean you did not CLEARLY imply that I was one and you stated I was using “historically racially charged” language.

      I don’t have time to go back and cut and paste what you typed, and that twice, you admonished me and said I should not use the term boy when speaking with African American Men. First of all, I was not using the Noun “Boy” the way you believe I was, and also I am not going to nitpick and argue with you over syntax or any other grammatical structure.

      Whatever, Dude. You outright referred to me as being a Racist, and if you are going to vacillate on that now, then so be it.

      I don’t really want to keep going over this. You were incorrect and I believe an apology is in order, but I will never get one and it’s cool.

      You were incorrect, and if there is one thing I cannot stand it’s also Hypocrite. You did your share of name calling Mitts Robe Me, whatever the heck else you typed—I would have to refer back. If I were truly in the wrong, as much as I would probably not want to admit it, I would.

      Now you are trying to back pedal and make excuses and that is a pretty serious accusation, telling some one they should not use certain words and inferring that the use of the noun “Boy” and Barack Obama in the same sentence makes a person a Racist. (Or one who should not use “historically racially charged language” according to you). Please! Spare me.

      Pure, BS, My Man- Pure BS. Now- see— I just called you a Man, and I could have instead substituted that Noun and and referred to you as “Boy”. As in , you are “a”/”the”/”my”/”his/hers”/ Boy, Dude, Man, Guy, whatever?!?

      Seriously. This is getting so old and we are off topic again. I disagree completely with you, and I am not incorrect on my comment or response or assessment of you attempting to accuse me of being Racist in any way, shape or form.

      Are you confused as to what you previously typed? You must have more free time on your hands so you can go back and cut and paste for that response, RK. I’m all set.

      Not to be rude, either but this topic is now closed as far as I;m concerned.

    23. RK on August 10th, 2012 4:06 pm

      It is a fact that you cannot find me using the phrase “historically racially charged” prior to this sentence on this exact comment on this thread. If you think you can, simply reply with which comment number above it is.

      I believe you when you say it is closed; However, I recognize that may only be a prediction, not fact.

      If you think I won’t reply to another angry screed of yours where you post false statements; think again. If you really want to end this, why don’t you go read a nice book?

    24. NGBoston on August 11th, 2012 7:59 am

      #23. RK- Not on this thread. It was the original thread on Harry Reid’s accusations of Romney not paying taxes.

      It is back several pages. IIRC, you were the one originally who was angry at typed words in a sentence. Fact.

      You will respond again to this, stay in denial, hurl more false accusations in response to my posts, because you are just another Bleeding Heart Kool-Aide Drinking Liberal.

      Fact.

      Ta Ta for Now.

      I guess you now know where you are; perhaps you can see how all those misplaced comments are not a topic here.

      “It is back several pages.” – If you want to make your words a little more meaningful, perhaps you’ll source your opinions with actual references; and not expect others to do your work for you.

      “hurl more false accusations in response to my posts” – I suppose you might know what this is about, but as vague as this “reference” is, such a claim means nothing (again, are we to read your mind to decipher what you might be talking about).

      If you mean it is a “FACT” that I’m “another Bleeding Heart Kool-Aide Drinking Liberal”, the fact that this is your opinion is duly noted. But that is the only fact related to this statement.

      I really have hope you can see the style of your comments, while highly opinionated, lack evidence, IMO, to support most of what you tell us. I’m not sure why.

    26. RK on August 11th, 2012 11:22 am

    27. NGBoston on August 11th, 2012 6:49 pm

      #26- Not sensitive about my party affiliation at all, which just so happens to be Registered IND.

      Especially Conservative on fiscal issues…more moderate to liberal on Social.

      Apologies in advance, not going to cut and paste my own pastes on this board to validate my original statements. Not being lazy, it’s all there.

      Concur, can be highly opinionated as are you and millions of people. Everyone has opinions, RK…some just express them more vigorously than others. So what ?.. Doesn’t!t make any or all of my opinions right or wrong. They are just exactly that….only my opinions.

      Anyway, the words I live by are all very nicely up above in the sentiments you took the liberty to cut and paste for me.

      I stand by them, and all of my posts.

      Thanks and have a nice weekend.
