    Mitt Romney lashed back at Harry Reid on Thursday in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, saying the Senate majority leader needs to "put up or shut up" after airing allegations about Romney's taxes.

    Reid, a Nevada Democrat, first raised eyebrows Tuesday by saying in a news interview that someone had told him Romney went 10 years without paying taxes. He would only identify his source as an investor in Romney's former venture capital firm, Bain Capital, and he acknowledged, "I'm not certain" it's true.

    That didn't stop Reid from taking to the Senate floor Thursday to accuse the Republican presidential candidate again of paying no taxes, part of a broader Democratic attack on Romney for declining to release more than two years of tax documents.

    "The word's out that he hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years," Reid said. "Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn't."

    But Romney forcefully denied Reid's allegations on Hannity's radio show Thursday.

    "Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with, because, of course, that is totally and completely wrong," Romney said. "It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate. It’s wrong.

    All Romney has to do, unless he is hiding something ... like paying no taxes ... is to let his tax returns be published. Obama published his.

    I wonder what Romney is hiding?

    Hiding?

    Nothing.

    Why should Romney give Obama and you more to lie about?

    Probably hiding the fact that he is a very successful, self made millionaire. Jealousy will get you nowhere CTB.

    The attack by Reid is Qbama instigated. If Romney has not paid any taxes he is in the same club as the Qbama cohort GE! Also, if Romney has not paid any taxes for 10 years as Dingy Harry says where is the IRS.

    I would also point out that Dingy Harry won't release even one year of his tax returns. Dingy Harry is a slimy Marxist just like your little tin god, Obama!

    I personally believe that Romney should not release any more returns. Two years is sufficient!

    Well, unless Romney believes releasing his records would hurt him more than not releasing them then he could put this issue to rest very quickly by releasing them.

    This constant call for his taxes and Reid's false and unfounded accusation is only hurting Obama's campaign. It is going no where.

    I do hope everyone understand this post was made to prove a point. I don't really think this.

    What was the point? :tonofbricks:

    I, for one, did not take it seriously ... considering the source. :laugh:

    I do take these verses from Eph. seriously:

    How about posting your tax returns on this Forum CTB so we will all know with whom we are dealing. I assume you do file a return, don't you CTB

    Why would I do that and leave a paper trail? :laugh:

    If I were running for president I would make all of them public going back to the 1960's.

    Like I said, Romney could put this whole issue to rest very easily. I can only believe he feels that releasing them will be more destructive to his chances of election than by keeping them from the public.

    Very sad that one who professes to be a follower of Jesus Christ would ignore the following Scripture:

    Proverbs 6:16-18
    16. These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
    17. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
    18. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
    19. A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.


    Obama is arrogant--has a "proud look".

    Obama is a liar.

    Obama "sheds innocent blood".

    Obama devises wicked imaginations, supports homosexual marriage.

    Obama is continually doing mischief for the Republic!

    Obama is a liar; if you like your health care ????????

    Obama sows discord. "I won you lost"!

    That is 7 out of 7 CTB. Where do you stand?

    Hmmm...you have trouble understanding an accusation like that but you full well understand and support an accusation very much like it when it comes from one of your left wing buddies against a Presidential you oppose.

    Just like my post Reid's accusation is slanderous gossip and unfounded. He claims to have an unnamed source and was willing to go the the senate floor with gossip. He has cheapened the Senate House with his slanderous gossip and you support it.

    I could make the same claims about Romney and it would make no difference. He is not ready to be president and it appears his truth is whatever he can say at the moment that might win him a few votes. He seems to have no ethics. It seems he has been on both sides of just about every issue.

    Ain't no perfect candidates in this election.

    Now, as I said, he could put an end to this issue quickly ... or add gasoline to the fire ... by releasing his tax returns.

    Why do you lie about Romney not releasing his tax return?

    He released his 2010 return a long time ago, and is working on releasing his 2011 (he has not filed it yet, his account is still working on it. He requested and received an extension).

    All of this "tax return" stuff is just Democratic demagoguery to distract the voters from the real issues facing this country and cover up the fact that Obama has done nothing to fix it.

    To quote James Carville from Carter's 1992 campaign, "It's the economy, Stupid!"

    Why not release as many as Obama has released. There is no lie in that Romney has not released as many. What is he hiding?

    Obama has proven he is not ready to be president. Romney has been a very successful businessman, successful in the 2000? Olympics, successful as Mass. governor. The only thing Obama has been successful at doing is beating his gums!.

    How much pain did Romney cause others while he was making his millions?

    How many mom and pop businesses did he put out of business.

    What side is Romney on on any issue?
