Rep. Nancy Pelosi to the Rescue...

Harry Reid, given his announcement he had heard from a unnamed(s) source at Bain Capital that Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes in 10 years apparently needed support from another disingenuous progressive, one worth millions I might add. Not that ALL progressives worth millions are disingenuous and lacking in integrity mind you.

When I saw the picture above, one of a motherly Ms. Pelosicrat obviously consoling her male associate in government opaqueness I couldn't help but smile and think just how foolish and distracting from the REALLY important issues facing the nation all this "stuff" over tax returns really is.

Ms. Pelosicrat has come to the defense of one Mr. Duh, who made his allegations based on information from an unidentified source whom allegedly really exists but whom Mr. Duh refuses to identify. Duh. Now everybody should get it and just go vote for the Emperor Who Has No Clothing.

Were I a judge ruling on the evidence presented by Mr. Duh and Ms. Pelosicrat so far I certainly would throw the case out of court.

Okay, snark off and put aside here's the HuffPo lowdown.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- 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."

It should be obvious to everybody that Mr. Duh and Ms. Polosicrat are just playing tag team politics intended to create the greatest distraction of the dismal performance of the Obama economic "plan." Goal, to keep America fixated on Romney's success at the expense of the "average American Joe and Jane.

"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."

The California Democrat said she doesn’t relish watching Romney squirm over his tax returns because she's more interested in focusing on the fact that his tax plan is "so harmful to the middle class." Still, she said, the two issues are connected.

"The salience of what Harry Reid is saying is related" to the contents of Romney's tax plan, Pelosi said. "Here's a guy who wants you to pay more when I think, 'I' meaning Harry Reid, somebody told me he hasn't even paid his taxes. But he wants you to pay more to underwrite tax cuts for the wealthy... It's like a double doozy." {Read More}

In the above utterances from the lips of Ms. Pelosicrat lies the truth. You are seeing the tactics of the left, which is class warfare, divide and conquer, and at the end of the day to keep the spoils of political warfare to themselves.

History has given us many examples of the final results of that which is occurring in America in the 21st century. It also provides many examples of what happens when wealth is acutely concentrated at the very top layer of society.

As the chute downward into the bottomless pit continues to be greased by both the left and the right.

  1. "Somebody told him that" - that's Pelosi's criteria? She should hear some of the stuff that people "tell me" about her.............And why isn't Mr. Reid reporting this information to the I.R.S.?

    1. Good question Will. However we'll never know.

      An unnamed but influential source told me that Mr. Duh has millions in offshore accounts in the Cayman islands.

      Just imagine that!

  2. "And why isn't Mr. Reid reporting this information to the I.R.S.?"

    First, Mr. Reid doesn't have first-hand knowledge of it, the person who told him about not paying taxes should do so, BUT second, if Romney hasn't paid taxes in years, it's probably because of legal tax loop holes only the very, very wealthy can take advantage of, and Mr. Romney probably doesn't want people to know that. Wouldn't look good, would it. The guy wants to raise taxes on the middle class and the poor while giving more tax breaks to his uber-wealthy class, only to avoid paying taxes?

    Mr. Romney can stop all the speculation by just releasing his returns, as have other presidential candidates, as he will ask his veep choice to do, as his own father did [12 years' worth]. By not releasing more years, Mr. Romney keeps the suspicion around the issue going.

    He's handing the Democrats a great political cudgel to keep hammering him with.

    It's his own sorry fault that this is happening to him.

    1. "He's handing the Democrats a great political cudgel to keep hammering him with.

      It's his own sorry fault that this is happening to him."

      Partially true Shaw. Certainly Mitt not releasing more gives the dems something to swirl suspension and stoke the fires.

      On the other hand what the dems (progressives) really want is for Mitt to release more returns so they can say, well, we never said he did anything nefarious or illegal but the man is, while legitimately wealthy beyond belief, his success somehow has an adverse impact on the middle classes ability the succeed. Thus stoking the class warfare meme progressives are so adept at.

      It is just all so childish. It's like children aeguing ove what color lollipop they are going to get.

    2. You're right about one thing, Shaw. It sure as hell isn't first-hand knowledge.

  3. San Fran Nan backed up Slimy Harry? Oh, then it must be true? The unscrupulous and the clueless... What a dynamic duo!

  4. I suspect that Mr. Romney MAY have taken a loss on some investments and, because of that, he MAY have paid a relatively low percentage for a couple of years. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that and if I were him, I would release the ten years worth of returns and tell the Obama minions to a) go suck on it and b) there, now you guys release Obama's transcripts from Occidental and Columbia (we already know that Obama's cum there was under 3.3 because he didn't graduate with honors).

    1. Aw Will, don't ya know it isn't the same thing? Besides, for those who have been toke'n on hope and change for 4 years nothing will convince them of anything not blessed by the hope and change guru.
