The young reporter asked, “So you think Romney needs to release his tax records and come clean about offshore bank accounts, but that same standard does not apply to Democrats?”
“Exactly,” Reid replied.
Well, this does make sense when you stop to think about it. And it does provide consistency within the progressive party framework. Well, almost. Clinton had to release all his records, Bush had to release all his … and Democrats are making the same demand of Gov. Romney, but Barack Obama hasn’t released his records —and won’t release them. And doesn’t care whether we like it or not.
As for offshore bank accounts, Reid is upset because preposterously wealthy Mitt Romney is getting away with … Oh, I don’t know … legal stuff? But here’s an interesting revelation: key senatorial democrats also have offshore bank accounts. Their names are Diane Feinstein (CA), Richard Blumenthal (CT), Frank Lautenberg (NJ), and John Kerry (MA). [Source] Why isn’t Harry Reid worried about those lawbreak … um, people?
And since we’re talking about preposterous wealth, because Harry Reid brought it up, here’s another interesting revelation: seven of the ten richest members of the United States Congress are Democrats.
But wait, what happened to the Wicked Witch of the West? Cheer up; Nancy Pelosi remains one of the richest members of the House, which partly explains why she needed a luxury jet aircraft assigned to her during her tenure as Speaker of the House. Her net worth is $26.4 million. Part of that comes from the tax loopholes she created for her husband’s company, which also takes advantage of foreign labor and exceptions to the minimum wage law to avoid having to pay American workers what they’re worth.
