Reid’s dirty politics
Made popular 314 days ago in
Another bad jobs report, so it’s time to demagogue Mitt Romney’s tax returns, or so President Barack Obama’s campaign and his supporters believe. Their hope is that Americans care more about how much taxes Romney paid than they do about their own economic well-being after nearly four years of his failed economic policies. Such is the contempt the Obama camp holds for the voters.
Reid’s baseless drivel doesn’t bother any of the Democrats who a few months ago were demanding Republican leaders disassociate themselves from the birther nonsense. No major Democratic figure has repudiated Reid; rather they have doubled down by using his bilge as another opportunity to call for Romney to prove he paid taxes.
This guilty-until-proven-innocent stance is nothing new for Democrats. During the 2010 elections, Obama adviser David Axelrod accused the Chamber of Commerce of illegally funneling foreign money into election advertising, was asked to back it up with evidence and responded, “Do you have any evidence that it’s not” true? That kind of reckless disregard for facts is worthy of a birther. So much for Obama’s pledge to elevate the tone of American politics.
Romney is the definition of a straight arrow. There’s not an iota of a reason to doubt him when he says he’s paid a “lot of tax” on top of his very generous charitable donations.
Then again, given the failure of Obama’s policies, what else do Reid and company have but to smear Romney? Anything but talk about the latest jobs report that saw unemployment rise to 8.3 percent and 150,000 more discouraged Americans drop out of job hunting in the Obama economy last month. The jobless rate for key 2008 Obama voting bloc, 18- to 29-year-olds, is even worse at 12.7 percent. The Obama campaign believes it can stoke the politics of resentment enough that young people, and voters in general, will care more about Romney’s taxes than their own futures.
“Hope and change” now means Democrats hope voters will swallow Reid’s dirty politics and that will change the subject from the economy.

Yes, unfortunately and this election may well prove that contention. The only way to fight it is to vote early and often!
