quote:Reid claim's to have inside information from one of Romney's partners at Bain. Only Reid knows if he really does have inside information, therefore Reid should have named the person who gave him this information if he was going make this claim. On the other hand, Romney could have destroyed Reid by simply releasing his tax returns for the years in question if it wasn't true.
Because Reid didn't know what Romney paid in taxes. Reid's accusation was false and unsubstantiated, which WaPo's Ruth Marcus said for Cruz "crosses to make such an accusation.the line."

Ted Cruz = Joe McCarthy
Boxer’s analogy may have been more apt than she realized. Two and a half years ago, Cruz gave a stem-winder of a speech at a Fourth of July weekend political rally in Austin, Texas, in which he accused the Harvard Law School of harboring a dozen Communists on its faculty when he studied there. Cruz attended Harvard Law School from 1992 until 1995. His spokeswoman didn’t respond to a request to discuss the speech.
Cruz made the accusation while speaking to a rapt ballroom audience during a luncheon at a conference called “Defending the American Dream,” sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a non-profit political organization founded and funded in part by the billionaire industrialist brothers Charles and David Koch. Cruz greeted the audience jovially, but soon launched an impassioned attack on President Obama, whom he described as “the most radical” President “ever to occupy the Oval Office.” (I was covering the conference and kept the notes.)
He then went on to assert that Obama, who attended Harvard Law School four years ahead of him, “would have made a perfect president of Harvard Law School.” The reason, said Cruz, was that, “There were fewer declared Republicans in the faculty when we were there than Communists! There was one Republican. But there were twelve who would say they were Marxists who believed in the Communists overthrowing the United States government.”
“We are puzzled by the Senator’s assertions, as we are unaware of any basis for them,” Robb London, a spokesman for Harvard Law School, told me.
Reid had shite - he made the whole thing up.
Not a very good comparison IMHO, Welch wasn't an agent of a foreign government. Welch was pro American even if you disagreed with his views on Communism.
