WH Distances Itself From Reid; Carney Says He "Speaks For Himself"



quote:

"The charge is not that Mitt Romney paid less than a factory worker, or whatever, but it's a bit more vicious than that from Harry Reid. He said he has an anonymous source telling him that [Romney] paid no taxes for something like 10 years. So the president has talked a lot about change in the tone of this town. Why hasn't he picked up the phone to ask Harry Reid to stop making a charge like that?" FOX News White House correspondent Ed Henry asked WH press secretary Jay Carney at today's briefing.


quote:

"I think the idea that people tell Harry Reid what to do is inconsistent with what everyone here understands to be [the case]," Carney responded.

quote:

Carney then referred to several campaign attacks on Romney such as paying a lower effective tax rate and outsourcing jobs.

quote:

"That's not the charge," Henry corrected Carney. "The charge is that he didn't pay taxes for ten years. Does the White House believe that allegation?"

quote:

"Yeah, I would refer you to Senator Reid. I can't -- only Senator Reid knows his source, which he has discussed. And I would refer you to that," Carney responded.

If Romney had gone 10 years without paying taxes, the WH hit team would have found out by now.

Just like smart conservatives distanced themselves from the B.C. issue before it blew up in their faces, politically astute libs will avoid this claim by Reid like the plague.

You do realize this means nothing, right?

It's still out there. Libs are still jizzing in their pants because Harry is "giving them hell" about this.

Obama reaps the benefits of Reid's slander, yet "distances" himself from it so he can avoid blame.

I'm aware, and when Romney releases all of his records in the coming month they will all look ridiculous.

I hope you are right.

I hope he picks either Rubio or Rice for his VP, taking some nice momentum from the convention.

Then, as soon as Obama and either Biden or Clinton are "wheels up" from Charlotte leaving their convention, I hope he releases his returns for the last 25 years with a nice "eat shit" grin on his face.

its interesting how dirty the obama campaign has been this year in their politics. In my lifetime, they always seemed to dabble in dirty politics, while the republicans had mastered the art form. Swift boating kerry, the birther notion, and other rovian tactics were heavily used by republicans, and they were quite effective.

Looks like they have learned. Net-net, its bad for the country but does make for an interesting election season.

Reid is only giving Romney what he deserves.

We dont have to take it when Romney is hiding.

We can opine about Romney's real returns all we like. We can even quote 3rd parties with an ax to grind.
ITS SO SIMPLE:
If Romney doesnt like it, he can just open up his records for a serious review.

STFU, Romney.

2000 - Dems drop a last minute "hidden DWI" charge at Bush less than a week before the election.

2004 - Dems (with major assistance from CBS News and Dan Rather) assert Bush was either a deserter or had received favorable treatent while in the Texas ANG.

What are you? 8?

More likely, the Obama team knows there is nothing of real political value in this, and they want the Whitehouse as far as possible from Reid when it blows up in his lap.

So, otto, a guy that I think is a very credible source told me that you fellate collies. I think this guy may have an ax to grind with you, but I still believe him.

I suggest you authorize a neutral member of the board to obtain a complete copy of your criminal history, so we can get to the bottom of this.

UD, You could be right.

He's now dug in, and stuck in an indefensible position.

I wonder if some would-be VP nominees are going to ask him to release them too, so they are not VP nominee of a failed candidacy. That would align with your suggestion that he releases them right after the convention, based on being forced to do so by Portman, whom I expect to be the nominee.

For it to work best for him, he needs to release them right before the election so he can claim he released them, without anyone having the time to look over them.
WIthout releasing his returns, he has no shot. NONE.

Why won't Reid prove to us once and for all that he's not a pedophile? I had a manager at a very high end Nevada casino call me the other day. He told be it was well known that Reid liked to hook up with underage prostitutes at that hotel. The manager disapproved, but the owner had the final word.

So, it's out there.

No, quite a bit older. Those examples weren't especially dirty, especially there is a notion that the play against rather was a plant by rove.

The dems have always been dirty (LBJ ad?) And always will be dirty, but this shite with the tax returns is playing in the dirt at a new level, especially reid's accusations.

I am not condoning their use of dirty politics, but the democrats always seemed weaker in campaigning, especially when using under-handed tactics. They seem to have no compunction about using half truths and things taken out of context, which seems to me to be a change in magnitude.

You might be a partisan and not recognize how dirty karl rove is. Its appears the democrats are fighting back in the same style. Its going to make it a fun election to watch, that is for sure.

All this tells me is that Barry is an even bigger pussy than I thought he was.

He's hiding behind Reid, and he's too chicken shite to own up to it.
