Harry Reid had no problem with devining the emotions of Mitt Romney’s deceased father:
“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.
So it’s entirely reasonable to shine some light on Reid’s father and why he took his own life.
The word’s out. Have you heard about a mysterious phone call from one of Happy Harry Reid’s political cronies from the mortifying days in 1974 when Paul Laxalt waxed him for the Nevada Senate seat that changed the course of Reid’s life forever?
It’s a pretty shocking story, and one that the powerful Democrat has understandably never explained through all these years. It’s haunted him though, through those early devastating political losses for the Senate and the Las Vegas mayor’s office, the defeats that turned him into the bitter, cynical political mumbler he’s become at age 72.
This troubling tale has haunted Harry Reid through the shadowy years he ran the Nevada Gaming Commission, through his public embarrassment over the Los Angeles Times investigation into his son and son-in-law’s Washington lobbying activities,the ethics investigation into the free tickets Reid happily accepted to boxing matches and the successful land development deal that ended up netting Reid $1 million when he sold it, in an amazing coincidence, to a friend and it became a shopping center.
And through all these years, Harry Reid has never bothered to deny that awful early story. Just as he’s never denied any early involvement with left-wing South American political parties and an unsuccessful 1964 bid to become a Goldwater Girl.
Reid claims to know something from someone about something about Romney:
Now, Harry says he’s in possession of this information because an old business crony of Romney’s, whom Reid won’t name, made that statement in a phone conversation that Reid won’t document. In fact, Reid has no proof whatsoever that what the unidentified caller allegedly said in that unverified conversation containing the unsubstantiated claim has any merit at all.
But now we know why Harry’s father killed himself:
Reid’s father was so embarrassed about what his son would do someday that he killed himself at age 58.
It’s pretty obvious that this is being orchestrated by Barack Obama and David Axelrod. It just oozes with their slime.
What’s utterly astonishing is that rather than demand that Reid provide anyone the name of the alleged accuser or any evidence of the wrongdoing he asserts, the execrable cretins of the left wing media instead squeeze Romney to prove he is innocent of this scurrilous charge. Insisting upon this and ignoring Reid is how Romney should respond to Reid’s outrageous and shameful accusation.
Did I mention that the economy sucks?
