Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the rest of the Democratic Party have no shame when it comes to their relentless efforts to get presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s tax records, talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said.
“They are saying Romney didn’t pay taxes for 10 years,” Limbaugh said Thursday.
“It’s a lie because they can’t prove the charge.”
Limbaugh says that trying to get dirt on an opponent is a classic campaign strategy for President Barack Obama since he cannot run on his own political record.
However, in Romney’s case, there is no dirt to get. which is why Obama, Reid, and the rest of the Democrats are trying so hard to get Romney’s taxes released. And Romney knows this, Limbaugh said.
“What they are trying to do is pressure Romney into releasing tax returns,” Limbaugh said. “They don’t care what’s in them. It doesn’t matter.
“Once they get five years of tax records with a tax return that will probably be fairly complicated compared to your average 1040 filer, they will be able to point to something in there that will make the uninformed class think, ‘That is outrageous.’
“There’s no evidence that he hasn’t paid any taxes,” Limbaugh continues. “It doesn’t have to be true. All it is has to be is complicated . . . unusual.
“Romney knows that’s what they are doing. That’s why he saying he’s not going to do it and he better hold to that . . . because the pressure is going to mount.
“Does Harry Reid have any shame?”
