Reid: Romney couldn't be confirmed as dog catcher
 


Washington (CNN) – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid blasted Mitt Romney Thursday in personal and biting terms, so to speak, telling reporters the presumed Republican presidential nominee could not be confirmed as "dog catcher" by the Senate.

A day earlier, Reid said on the Senate floor that Romney "couldn't get approved" as a Cabinet officer, because "he won't show anybody his income tax returns."


But wait a minute Harry;

(from January 2012)
Mitt Romney’s 2010 tax return, Romney’s estimated 2011 filing (Full text)

Note: There is an ongoing question about some alleged missing returns or portions of.



"If he doesn't qualify to be a Cabinet officer, how could he qualify to be President?" Reid asked Wednesday.

Thursday, he took it a step further.

"He not only couldn't be confirmed as a cabinet secretary, he couldn't be confirmed as dog catcher. As a dog catcher, you'd at least want to get a look at his tax returns," said Reid with a look of disgust on his face.
 



Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV): "Mitt Romney, if he tried to be confirmed as a member of the cabinet, would never make it. Why? Because we ask all people who come before the Senate to give us their income tax returns. He's afraid to do that. Why? Because he's parked most of his money -- I shouldn't say most, he's got a lot. He's parked money overseas [and] basically hasn't paid taxes because he has tax havens and tax shelters [in] Switzerland, Bahamas, Grand Cayman Islands. I mean, he's not qualified to be a cabinet officer, let alone President of the United States."

 


Breitbart opinions;

The mainstream media has been repeating--without any criticism, context, or opposing view--Sen. Harry Reid's claim that Mitt Romney could not be confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve in the Cabinet--or even to serve as "dog catcher"--because he has only released his most recent tax returns, not his entire tax history. The story currently leads major news websites, including National Public Radio's hourly news update. So it seems appropriate to do what the media will not: apply Reid's "dog catcher" standard to Barack Obama.

Let us first take the question of whether Barack Obama would have been confirmed by the Senate for any position, Cabinet or otherwise. If his lack of experience was not a sufficient obstacle, his past history of serious drug use--which is even worse than the admissions in his memoir, Dreams from My Father--would have barred his nomination. So, too, would his radical past, including his associations with Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, Rashid Khalidi, Derrick Bell, and a host of extremists with whom he made common cause....[story continues]

Let's Apply Harry Reid's 'Dog Catcher' Standard to Barack Obama
 


I thought Obama WAS a dog catcher ?

Romney isn't qualified. And just because Reid is right, doesn't mean that Obama is qualified himself. Reid probably could eat his own words at some point too.

But yes, Romney gets a break because he is a part of the elite rich in this country. If a normal person would # up fillings as hard as Romney has, they would already be in jail.

Justice for all, except for those who write the checks.

Neither contender in this race should be allowed to run IMO.

Barack Obama Didn’t Pass E-Verify System!

New Evidence submitted by Orly includes a copy of the government’ s E-Verify System’s rejection of Barack Obama’s Connecticut Social Security number that he uses. Included is the sworn affidavit of Ms. Linda Jordan who went to E-Verify and submitted Barack Obama’s name. She requested verification of his status and eligibility to legally work in the U.S. Barack Obama failed the simple government test. According to the government’s own system Barack Obama does not qualify to legally hold a job in the U.S.


Barack Obama Denied National Security Clearance

How can the President of the United States be denied a basic security clearance? How can the Commander and Chief of the most powerful military be denied access to classified information? Barack Obama would be denied the necessary security clearance for President if he was held to the same standard as everyone else. If you can’t pass a Secret level background investigation, which is required for many soldiers, you should not be eligible for the Presidency.

A business man "isn't qualified" but two lawyers are just wonder if Reid,Biden,Obama ever worked in the private sector?

Lawyers do not count Reid is not qualified to be a sitting congressman.

Wrong again, Neo.
Senator Reid has shown his tax returns.

It's a healthy practice to read the material prior to babbling a response which has nothing to do with what's going on.

Romney only reluctantly released 1 year.
I remember when he released it. Everyone is asking that he release others, just like his father did. He has a lot of investments to disclose as he is running for POTUS.

I'm with you. I say disclose it all. There's a man dead because of a program which went horribly wrong. Just like Sandusky and his awful mess, I want to know who knew what and what could have been done differently.
