Harry Reid stands up beside his desk in the Senate and announces he’s got ‘credible evidence’ Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes for ten years – but then says he’s not sure it’s true.
The Chairman of the Republican Party, throwing manners aside, brands Reid a ‘dirty liar.’
Reid’s spokesman fires back it’s ‘clear Romney is hiding something.’ Then the Chairman of the Democratic Party piles on, adding Romney ought to come clean ‘lickety-split.’
And the whole rhubarb lands on the Sunday morning talk shows.
It’s a microcosm of modern politics.
No proof. Name calling. Posturing. And nobody’s learned one thing when it’s over.
