No, I don’t know why I’m up this late, either.
Anyway, Dan Primack of CNN Money makes the case that the Senate Majority Leader is either blatantly making stuff up or passing along stuff that was blatantly made up about Romney’s tax returns (for those who haven’t heard, Reid rather bizarrely told people today that Mitt Romney didn’t pay taxes for ten years). Primack points out that Bain investors wouldn’t have access to that kind of information about fund managers; Romney hasn’t been working at Bain for more than a decade; and that Bain doesn’t do its taxes in-house anyway.
To which I’ll add: Romney ran for Senate in the 1990s and Massachusetts governor in the 2000s. Precisely how did Democrats manage to miss this amazing revelation, at the time? I mean. Seriously. Doesn’t anybody in the Democratic party understand how business works? People at Romney’s level are not permitted to simply wander away without paying taxes. And the IRS isn’t going to forget to check. Quite the opposite, in fact. Anyway… Harry Reid’s a little young yet to be having episodes, but at seventy-three he might be having the first flashes of them. Has he seen a neurologist lately? Has he always been this irritable? Even foul-mouthed? Or is this new?
Hey. I’m just asking questions, right?
PS: I AM up late: I forgot to H/T Instapundit.
