    Should Harry Reid Resign?

    What Matters in Romney's Tax Memo - Yahoo! Finance

    In an attempt to smear Mitt Romney, about two months ago United States Senator Harry Reid declared that he had inside knowledge that Mitt Romney had not paid any taxes for some of the years over the last decade. This has now been debunked. So the question is, if a United States senator lies about another American's income tax filings in an attempt to smear them, should that trusted member of civilized government be forced to resign?

    I have always heard that people in glass houses should not throw stones.

    If we ousted every lying politician, there would be none left to screw us blind.

    Mitt is on record for fibbing time and time again. Should we have him resign the GOP candidacy?

    So did Mitt Romney lie about someone's personal tax information, claiming to have inside knowledge, in order to smear them? What would you think if Speaker of the House John Boehner came out tomorrow saying that he had reviewed Hawaii's birth certificate records and determined that the original for Barack Obama never existed?

    Harry Reid needs to learn to speak faster first so when he resigns it doesn't take him a whole five minutes to get through the first sentence of his resignation speech.

    Haha! Washington would be a lonely place if lying was grounds for removal.

    Do you think there is a difference between lying about yours or someone else's policies, making promises you find out you can't keep, and saying that you have special knowledge that someone else has defrauded taxpayers, is a felon, or something like that? Same question as above, what if Speaker Boehner said he had personally reviewed the birth certificate files in Hawaii and determined Obama wasn't born there, should he resign for a lie like that?

    He should resign because he has been incapable of even having a Senate budget proposal.

    He should be CENSORED by the Senate for his extreme lie - which won't happen -

    - and a resolution condemning him for his using his Senate position to promote his partisan political lie - and false criminal accusation - against Romney by the House of Representatives, which could be done.

    If all the politicians that have uttered misleading or outright false statements were to resign, we would at last have achieved what I think needs to be done. Get rid of all of them. What needs to happen is that Reid needs to be voted out of office.

    And for that you've got to wait a few more years.

    From the swiftboating of Kerry to the comment that Obama "pals around with terrorists" I find it disingenuous when Republicans huff and puff over the Reid comment. You guys have done a great job lowering the bar of political discourse. In fact you've been so effective that nobody cares that Reid made those comments.
