Reid began ratcheting up pressure on Romney to release his tax returns, even resorting to innuendo on the Senate floor that the GOP nominee had not paid anything to the IRS for a decade. “I was told by an extremely credible source” — believed to be Jon Huntsman Sr. — “that Romney has not paid taxes for 10 years,” Reid would assert.

I used to respect Harry Reid’s political style and tact. I pretty much never agree with him, but his grit and willingness to fight I once found inspiring.

After he used the Senate floor to blatantly lie about Romney’s taxes I lost all respect for him. This was a man (while I did not agree with him politically) I viewed as principled and willing to stand up for what he believed in. After lying about Mitt’s tax returns I quickly realized he had lost what I once found so appealing — an honest and relentless approach to meeting his end goals.

Harry Reid is not an honest man, his words and actions have lost all credibility in my opinion (not that he cares).

Say what you will about Mitt Romney, he would never even consider stooping to the low levels of Harry Reid.
