UPDATE 1: Harry Reid: "He Paid No Taxes!"

UPDATE 2: What Would Gore Vidal Say?

Forget the ridiculous gaffs abroad committed by a diplomatic dimwit. We experienced it all  before with George Bush. Tabloid headlines screaming "Mitt the Twit" were not as bad as the summit during which Bush was so badly shunned, he hung his head down in despair for a long time. After all, Mitt Romney hasn't threatened half the world, started a war on specious reasoning, and ruined whole economies by deregulating everything ...

... yet.

WASHINGTON -- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has what he says is an informed explanation for why Mitt Romney refuses to release additional tax returns. According a Bain investor, Reid charged, Romney didn't pay any taxes for 10 years.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Huffington Post from his office on Capitol Hill, Reid saved some of his toughest words for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Romney couldn't make it through a Senate confirmation process as a mere Cabinet nominee, the majority leader insisted, owing to the   opaqueness of his personal finances .

Reid also said that with his lack of financial disclosure and credentials, he "couldn't be elected dogcatcher."

Harry Reid's disclosure seems, perhaps, to be simply another item on the list of Romney's rather immoral faults. But it may lie at the core of a more important issue: Romney's   innate   immorality. That immorality involves his condescension, his secrecy regarding his finances, his lies about his involvement with Bain, his consistent pandering in whatever wind to obtain votes. 

The Romney image - if indeed there is a cohesive one - is built upon the false front of an entrepreneur who knows how to run a successful business and can therefore put America on the road to full economic recovery.  It is certainly not built upon his tenure as governor of Massachusetts. That arena of expertise has been sidestepped from the start.* And sidestepping issues in an important political campaign can be as immoral as any lie. 

 
Vidal's Thoughts by dan

What Would Vidal Say?

The most wonderful liberal of our time, Gore Vidal, passed away at the age of 86. He was the iconoclast who was also an anomaly: the quintessential patrician who hated rich conservatives. He was far above any who tried to best him in an intellectual debate. Indeed, William F. Buckley, the doyenne of conservative politics became frustrated by his inflammatory but astute rhetoric.** (see the infamous debate below).

While he obviously chimed in about the upcoming Presidential race, no quotes about Romney are readily available (I tried). But what he has said in the past might just as well be used (and pertain to Romney) today:

  - The more money an American accumulates, the less interesting he becomes.

- That loyal retainer of the Chase Manhattan Bank, the American president.
