In response to Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid’s shameful comments about what he heard from some unnamed Bain Capital investor with regards to Mitt Romney not paying taxes for 10 yeas … Mitt Romney responds and say, “Put Up or Shut Up”!
It’s time for Harry to put up or shut up,” Romney said on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with because that’s totally and completely wrong. It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate. It’s wrong. So I’m looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources and we’ll probably find out it’s the White House.”
Much more from The Other McCain, ‘Harry Reid’s Financial McCarthyism: ‘I Don’t Think the Burden Should Be on Me’. Unbelievable. Mach outrageous accusations and then think that you should not have to prove your slanderous comments.
This is Low Even for Harry Reid and Democrats … Bain Investor Told Me Romney “Did not Pay Taxes for 10 Years” … Have You No Shame!
SHAMEFUL, SIMPLY SHAMEFUL …
Harry Reid cannot pass a budget in the Senate for 4 years, but he can throw old wild slanderous accusations with no knowledge whether they are true or not. This is how desperate Democrats are, they will resort to and say anything, rather than talking about the economy. What ever happened to Obama’s call for civility?
Yes, it’s true I am a low life and have no shame
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have you no shame. What a disposable, rotten piece of human waste. Without any confirmed facts, not knowing what he was spewing from his mouth was true or false and worse yet, not caring, Reid made a comment about Mitt Romney that he heard from an unnamed Bain investor that Romney had not paid taxes for 10 years. This miserable excuse for a human being also went on to say that, “His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son.” Exactly how far in the gutter are you? What kind of a person makes such an irresponsible comment? What would Reid do if some one said he heard from an unknown person on the Internet that he slept with farm animals or had ‘Affairs With Pet Dogs, Lights Own Farts’?
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has what he says is an informed explanation for why Mitt Romney refuses to release additional tax returns. According a Bain investor, Reid charged, Romney didn’t pay any taxes for 10 years.
In a wide-ranging interview with The Huffington Post from his office on Capitol Hill, Reid saved some of his toughest words for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Romney couldn’t make it through a Senate confirmation process as a mere Cabinet nominee, the majority leader insisted, owing to the opaqueness of his personal finances.
“His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son,” Reid said, in reference to George Romney’s standard-setting decision to turn over 12 years of tax returns when he ran for president in the late 1960s.
Imagine if a Republic made such a comment about Obama. The MSM in lock step would be to his defense. Where are they pressing Reid as to whether this smear is true or not? As stated at Hot Air, who in their right mind really believes that ‘a person who had invested with Bain Capital’ know about Romney’s personal tax returns anyway?”
One thing is for certain, Reid needs to apologize. Voters, you can end this reign in the Senate this November. Sadly, the Democrats and Obama are only going to get more desperate to closer we get to the elections because they cannot run on their failed record.
Look for that
union Chinese label … C’mon man, you mean we can’t even make the damn USA Olympic uniforms in the USA? File this one under, imagine what the news cycle would be like if it were a Romney donor?
You just can’t make this stuff up … President is so quick to attack Mitt Romney for outsourcing jobs, but mums the word when it comes to the USA Olympic uniforms that were outsourced to China to be manufactured by an Obama donor’s company. That donor, Ralph Lauren of course. Not only will USA Olympic athletes be walking in the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics in cheesy outfits, but ones made in China. Why not seeing that they own so much of our debt. Under this President I am surprised we are not made to wear the same outfits as the Chinese.
Can you imagine what the MSM would be screaming if it were Bain Capital that outsourced the USA Olympic uniforms to China?
Lawmakers were livid to discover that the United States’ Olympic team uniforms were made in China. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) even suggested “they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again.”
The company who designed the uniforms, Ralph Lauren, has received less scrutiny. Few outlets have noted that Ralph Lauren himself is a prominent contributor to President Obama and the Democratic Party.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Lauren has given $7,300 to Obama since 2008, and more than $35,000 to the Democratic National Committee.
Harry Reid says the uniforms should be put in a pile and burned, what about the campaign donations as well?
Senate Democrats Introducing ‘Team USA Made in America Act of 2012? but no word on whether they will return the donations from the outsourcing donor. No word from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid about still wanting to burn the uniforms outsourced to China by a Democrat donor.
“I think they should take all the uniforms, put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said when asked by ABC News Thursday. “If they have to wear nothing but a singlet that says USA on it, painted by hand, that is what they should wear.
From Michelle Malkin.com, how come President Obama is not ripping Ralph Lauren over outsourcing jobs to China and especially the manufacturing of the USA Olympic outfits? Hmm? Oh, looky there, could it be those nice donations? Where is the hue & cry to give back this money?
While we are on the topic of outsourcing and shipping jobs to China, where is the liberal, corrupt MSM complex and their reports of Barack Obama’s jobs czar, GE’s Jeff Immelt, who gets a massive tax break from Obama, yet shipped thousands of jobs over to China?
Harry Reid Says that We Need To Pass Post Office Reform Bill Because “Seniors Love Getting Junk Mail”
Has Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid finally post it? Reid cites “seniors love getting junk mail” in order to pass Post Office reform. Seriously, has Reid lost his mind? I bet you folks in Nevada are just so proud that you reelected Harry the Reid.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) cited seniors’ love of junk mail in urging passage of a United States Postal Service reform bill.
In his opening speech on Wednesday, Reid called on the Senate to quickly move forward on the passage of S. 1789, the 21st Century Postal Service Act, which restructures pension plans for Postal Service employees as well as allows the USPS to access overpayments in the Federal Employee Retirement System.
Conservatives for Palin brings up a valid question as to the dumber argument from Harry Reid. Actually, pretty much every thing spewed from the lips of Reid these days is pure dribble.
Barack Obama Calls Out the Ryan Budget Yet WH Spokesperson Jay Carney Refuses to Address Why Obama Will Nor Call Out Democrat Controlled Senate To Pass Budget
The Barack Obama Presidency has no credibility. Obama is quick to call out Republican House Rep Paul Ryan’s budget, yet Obama and his minions are as quiet as a church mouse when it comes to why “The One” says nada when it comes to Harry Reid and the US Senate’s and the president’s own budget. What is most incredible is when Obama references Ryan’s budget as radical, it sounds like he is talking about his own policies and agenda.
Hot Air nails the duplicity of Barack Obama and his mouth piece minions. Obviously Jay Carney can’t handle the truth … nor questions about Obama’s budget or the lack there of.
To cleanse the palate, a simple question: Since only 51 votes are needed to pass a budget in the Senate and there are 53 Democratic and left-leaning independent senators, why doesn’t smilin’ Harry Reid ram through O’s latest spending blowout? The White House gets awfully fidgety when the media presses them on this, to the point where even former OMB director Jack Lew was forced to play dumb about how many votes are needed for Democrats to pass this thing.
Every one has their eye on the GOP Presidential primary and which Republican hopeful, Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, or a player to be named later will run against Barack Obama in the 2012 election. However, do not forget the all important US Senate elections. The GOP is poised to take back control from Harry Reid and the Democrats in 2012.
Republicans nearly took back control of the Senate in the 2012 midterm elections; however, because of the mere number of seats that Democrats will have to defend and the number of retirements, it is hard to imagine that Harry Reid will be Senate Majority Leader following the 2012 elections. Republicans look poised to pick up seats in Florida, Wisconsin, Montana, Nebraska and holding Massachusetts.
Election 2012: Florida Senate – Florida Senate: Mack (R) 43%, Nelson (D) 36%. Incumbent Bill Nelson finds himself in serious trouble in the battleground state of Florida. This would be a huge pick up for the GOP. Look for Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) to be the difference for Mack.
Republican Congressman Connie Mack now posts a seven-point lead over Democratic Senator Bill Nelson in Florida’s U.S. Senate race, and the incumbent remains just ahead of his other two potential GOP rivals.
Election 2012: Nebraska Senate – Nebraska Senate: Bruning (R) 55%, Kerrey (D) 33%. Nebraska is all but lost to Democrats as Ben “the Corn Husker Kickback” Nelson is getting out of Dodge in lie of being on the wrong side of a landslide GOP victory in 2012.
Democrats hoped to give themselves a shot at holding onto a U.S. Senate seat in Nebraska by talking retired Senator Bob Kerrey into running, but the first Rasmussen Reports survey of the race finds Kerrey trailing all three of his leading Republican opponents. A new telephone survey of Likely Nebraska Voters finds state Attorney General Jon Bruning earning 55% support to Kerrey’s 33%. Four percent (4%) like another candidate in the race, and seven percent (7%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Former Governor Tommy Thompson continues to be the strongest Republican contender for Wisconsin’s open U.S. Senate seat, now posting a double-digit lead over Democratic Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Wisconsin shows Thompson with 50% support to Baldwin’s 36%. Four percent (4%) like some other candidate, and 10% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Election 2012: Montana Senate – Montana Senate: Rehberg (R) 47%, Tester (D) 44%. Incumbent Democrat Jon Tester finds himself below the 50% threshold and in trouble for reelection in 2012.
Democratic incumbent Jon Tester runs slightly behind his leading Republican challenger in his bid for reelection in Montana’s U.S. Senate race.
A new telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Republican Congressman Denny Rehberg earning 47% support to Tester’s 44% in Rasmussen Reports’ first look at this contest. Four percent (4%) prefers some other candidate, while five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown, who won the 2010 special election to finish the term of the late Ted Kennedy, holds a modest lead over his expected Democrat challenger Elizabeth Warren in the first Rasmussen Reports’ look at his 2012 reelection bid in the Bay State.

Barack Obama & Democrats Drop Millionaires Paying for Extending the Payroll Tax Cut (Update: $1 Trillion Spending Agreement Reached for 2012)
Big Obama and Democrat concession on payroll tax cuts …
What can only be described as a victory by Congressional Republicans and a blow to President Barack Obama and Senate Democrats, Obama and Democrats cave on charging millionaires to pay for extending the payroll tax cut. Controlling just the House, Republicans are dictating the narrative as Obama and Dems caved, some are not surprised and upset with Obama and his Democrat minions. However, what do you expect, the GOP has been saying this for 3 years, Obama is no leader.
In what would be a major concession, President Obama and Senate Democrats will drop their insistence that a surtax on millionaires pay for extending the payroll tax cut, a Democratic source tells CNN. This would be part of a new Democratic offer.
On another note, will the government shut down? Signs point to no, there will most likely be a last second deal avoiding a shutdown.
UPDATE I: Just as we predicted above, there will be no shut down of the government, Congressional leaders reach spending deal to avoid government shutdown. Does Obama now have his excuse to head to Hawaii?
One Trillion Dollars!!!
Congressional negotiators signed off Thursday evening on a $1 trillion spending agreement for 2012 for federal agencies, barely 27 hours before a deadline that could have led to a government shutdown.
After dropping minor policy prescriptions that President Obama opposed, members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees gave final approval to the plan after a four-day standoff related to Obama’s demands to extend the payroll tax holiday for 160 million workers.
I’m glad to see that Congress got the message from “we the people” in stop spending money, NOT! Like the Lonely Conservative, I am ill as well. This Congress just does not get it and the reason why I say, they and this President get no tax increases to seal with any deficit. They have shown that they are all incapable of reducing spending and the burden on the American people. The 2012 elections cannot come fast enough and do not be surprised if Democrats lose control of the presidency and the Senate … also, establishment Republicans lose as well and some in positions of power are not there after 2012. Enough is enough.
Despicable … OWS Protesters Target School Kids in Their Day of Outrage … OWS Protesters Chant “Follow Those Kids!”
Despicable … OWS Protesters Target School Kids in Their Day of Outrage … OWS Protesters Chant “Follow Those Kids!” So this is what Obama, Pelosi and Reid endorse, eh. The OWS protesters have so crossed the line on acceptable behavior. This is not freedom of speech.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is officially over … you claimed to be protesting banks and economic inequality, code for redistribution of wealth. Yesterday OWS targeted and harassed school children. Stick a fork in OWS, they are done. What little support that remained for the OWS protesters just went out the window. On Thursday in NYC, OWS protesters harasses children and working folks alike as they caused chaos th the city. One question, what are you trying to accomplish, how hated a movement can become?
They were caught in the middle of madness.
Some grade school students were forced to walk a gauntlet of screaming “Occupy Wall Street” protesters just to get to school on Thursday.
It was a wild day in lower Manhattan for most everyone involved, including elementary school children who had to brave the mayhem just to get to class on the other side of Wall Street.
In the middle of thousands of protestors yelling and chanting — some kicking and screaming – CBS 2’s Emily Smith found little school kids trying to get to class. Nervous parents led them through the barriers on Wall Street. The NYPD helped funnel the children, anything to ease their fears while some protestors chanted “follow those kids!”
“These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids,” one father said.
Follow those kids? Seriously? Weasel Zippers reminds us that the number of school kids stalked and terrorized by Tea Party member is ZERO! These protesters do not represent the 99%, they represent the worst of what American can be and mob rule. Who in their right mind would target children? President Obama, Pelosi and Reid … Where is your outrage or is this what the Democrat party in 2011 now stands behind? This endorsement from Democrats will come back to haunt them in the 2012 elections.
More pics and VIDEO at the Gateway Pundit.
The mood of most Americans is becoming the attitude shared by that of Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R,C-NY) regarding the Occupy Wall Street mob … “it’s time for the OWS protesters to pack up their tents, buy a bar of soap, and head home.”
“These people have overstayed their welcome and it’s time they get the heck out of New York City. Between the filth, the smell, the incessant noise, and threat to public safety, they have done nothing but cause a nuisance to the people who work and live in Lower Manhattan. They’ve cost the city and surrounding businesses millions of dollars, and it’s time these people find a more productive use of their time. New Yorkers have had ENOUGH!
Occupy Wall Street Protesters Like the Tea Party, Eh … Man Deficates on NYC Police Car, Liberal Lies Part 274
So the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters are like the Tea Party, really? Not even close … Oh the hypocrisy.
President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Democrats and the bias MSM have tried to compare the Leftist/Socialist/Anarchist “Occupy” protester crowd as being like the Tea Party”. Really? This coming after support of the anti-Wall Street crowd from President Obama and Nancy Pelosi. However, if the LEFT thinks that the “Occupy” protesters are like the Tea Party, wouldn’t that mean that the “Occupy Wall Street” folks would be “Nazi’s carrying swastikas”, “Brown Shirts”, “astro-turfers”, “Not-American” , “extremists” and “Evil Mongers”?
Pelosi: “they are independent, young, spontaneous and focused”
However, unlike the demonization that Democrats did when it came to the Tea Party, folks like Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi praised the Wall Street protesters … “God Bless them”. The LEFT claims that the “Occupy” protesters are the counter to the Tea Party, they got that right.
Pelosi said that the Wall Street protesters were young, spontaneous and focused. Huh? The protest has been co-oped by organized labor unions and as for focused, you cannot get a common answer from 5 different people, let alone if they even know why they are protesting. As aptly stated at the Jawa Report, Pelosi’s tag line should have been … “S#it Happens.”
Pic: Daily Mail - Raw sewer: An unidentified man seen defecates on a NYPD patrol car in downtown Manhattan
From the UK Mail comes the following incident and picture of a man defecating on a NYC police car amid the Occupy Wall Street protests.When was the last time you ever saw such a thing occur at a Tea Party rally? The answer, NEVER! Also being reported is the piles of trash and unsanitary conditions that are being created. Another thing you will never hear reported from a Tea Party rally.
This are the shocking scenes that have led some people to accuse the Occupy Wall Street protesters living rough in New York’s financial district of creating unsanitary and filthy conditions.
Exclusive pictures obtained by Mail Online show one demonstrator relieving himself on a police car.
Elsewhere we found piles of stinking refuse clogging Zucotti Park, despite the best efforts of many of the protesters to keep the area clean.
The shocking images demonstrate the extent to which conditions have deteriorated as demonstrations in downtown Manhattan enter their fourth week. Further pictures seen by Mail Online have been censored, as we deemed them too graphic to show.
As discussed at the Lonely Conservative via the New York Times, not all of the protesters are crapping on police cars, some of the protesters are actually using the restrooms of local businesses, after being told by organizers to “feel free to refresh yourself in the restrooms of neighboring businesses like Burger King and McDonald’s without feeling obligated to buy anything.” Huh, two questions, didn’t the LEFT say that because of one perceived racist incident at a Tea Party event, that meant all Tea Party go’ers were racist? Second, how ironic that Wall Street protesters would use bathrooms of the very evil capitalist business that they are supposedly protesting.
UPDATE I: Confirmed … at the Tea Party sponsored event yesterday in Nashville, TN to “Stand Up with Gibson Guitars, there were no reports of any deification incidents on police vehicles.
Barack Obama Wants His Jobs Bill Back … Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (NV-D) Blocks Jobs Bill, Obama Blames Republicans
US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blocks Barack Obama’s jobs bill from a vote, but Obama says its the GOP’s fault.
Just last week President Barack Obama stated in his Weekly Address that he wanted his jobs bill back and blamed Republicans for the fact that it has not passed. However, like most of what Obama says is just not true. Yesterday Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell tried to have a vote on the Presidents jobs bill, forcing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to block the vote. Maybe some one may want to tell President Obama who is actually blocking his so-called jobs bill.
Senate Republicans tried to make Democrats hold a quick vote on President Obama’s jobs-stimulus bill Tuesday, but were blocked by Senate Majority Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who is sponsoring Mr. Obama’s bill but who said other matters take priority.
Mr. Obama has traveled the country calling for Congress to pass his plan immediately — including most recently Tuesday afternoon in Texas — but the tax increases included in his bill are opposed by Republicans and even many Democrats.
With that in mind, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, tried to force a vote, which presumably would have resulted in a humiliating defeat for the White House.
“I’d like to give him that vote,” Mr. McConnell said.
As reported at The Hill, McConnell was just trying to fulfill the request of Barack Obama by asking for a vote on the jobs bill and “to honor the request of the president of the United States that we vote on it now.” Reid blocked it an called it a political stunt. Really Senator Reid, a political stunt? Then what would you call what Obama is doing by asking for his jobs bill to be passed now, blaming the GOP to the American people and then having Democrats not support and block the vote? So who is blocking the passage of the bill?
“What I am trying to do here today by requesting this vote on the president’s jobs bill … is to honor the request of the president of the United States that we vote on it now,” McConnell said. “He has been asking us repeatedly over the last few weeks that we vote on it now.”
“I think the president of the United States, whose polices I generally do not support … is entitled to know where the Senate stands on his proposal that he has been out talking about … and suggesting that we are unwilling to vote on it,” he said.
However, that did not stop Obama from his divisive rhetoric in blaming the GOP for not passing the jobs bill. The fact of the matter is that there are many Democrats do not support the President’s bill. Let’s face it, Democrats are extremely hesitant to support anything that is purely Obama, they do not want to have to defend something else like the $787 stimulus and Obamacare in the 2012 elections.
