Yeah, okay, fine. Of course the allegations by Harry Reid’s source are unproven. That’s because Mitt Romney refuses to release his tax returns. Duh! But if you’re going to say Harry Reid’s pants are on fire for making claims about Mitt Romney’s taxes, then doesn’t Romney deserve the same treatment?
Just last week, Romney told ABC News that he’s paid a “very substantial amount” in taxes every year—at least “so far as [he] can recall.” But despite his claim, Romney refuses to release any evidence to support it—and unlike Reid, he’s got the evidence at his fingertips.
In the same interview, Romney said he’d be happy to go back and look at his returns to see if he’d ever paid less than 13.9 percent, but if he did go back and look, he hasn’t told anyone about it. He’s released zero evidence to back up his claim.
Bottom-line: what’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. If Harry Reid’s pants are on fire, so are Mitt Romney’s. And the difference is, Mitt Romney is the one running for president. He’s the one who has got to answer the questions. Not the honey badger.
