Why Harry Reid Hates Mitt Romney
BuzzFeed, by John Stanton & McKay Coppins

Original Article

Posted By:afortiori, 10/9/2012 10:23:07 AM

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's scathing attacks on everything from Mitt Romney’s personal integrity to his devotion to his faith won't be going away for one simple reason, people close to the Democrat say: Reid personally, deeply loathes Mitt Romney. Reid, a fellow Mormon and one-time boxer who has never been known as much of an orator, has emerged unexpectedly this year as the Democrats' most effective attack dog, doing particular damage to Romney with questions and innuendo about his personal tax returns. With the election approaching fast, the Nevada senator seems to be looking for new excuses

Comments:
Reid does this on his own is said further down. No Dim does anything on his/her own... except maybe Uncle Joe Biden.

So is there any truth to the rumor that many other Senators, both parties, and staff don't care to be aroung Senator Reid because he might have a little problem with bladder and bowell control?

Former boxer? That explains a lot. Just a step behind Ali in the scrambled brains department, I'd say.

"Democrats' most effective attack dog"

You rarely see the terms "effective" and "Harry Reid" in the same sentence- unless the writer is a total idiot.

I think the real reason is that Mitt embodies what being a Mormon and a Christian means...

And Dingy Harry can't stand it, because it makes him look bad.

Harry Reid's hate only extends to political opponents. Those who seek to harm (1) his financial interests, including payola for him, his sons and cronies are Public Enemy #1 for Dingy Harry.

well, H. Reid really practices his religion
well, doesn't he. He lies about another man's taxes and is found to be a liar. He attacks another man's character and tries to bring shame agaainst Romeny and his entire family. Reid is a very small, little, pathetic human being. He should crawl back into a very deep hole.

So he had a really bad youth and learned some bad habits in order to survive. But after he attained some success he never seems to have helped others, just went for more and more power and riches. He's become a worm instead of a statesman and it shows.

"Effective" attack dog?

What Harry comes up with is ludicrous and close to sheer delusion. Harry's own past is rife with shady real estate and mobster dealings, and his base in Las Vegas was founded during his stint as Gaming Commissioner for the State of Nevada in the early 1980's. Later, he deflected criticism of the large degree of financial support he got from Jack Abramoff, by branding the financial shenanigans of that rascal as a "Republican scandal", after he collected the benefit.

"Two-faced" does not begin to describe the calumny and scorn "Dingy Harry" heaps upon those whom he has declared "enemies".

Mobsters are ON FBI TAPE referring to their corrupt connection Harry Reid --- aka --- "Mr. Cleanface" or "Mr. Gillette" (then chair of the Nevada gaming commission) as their ticket to avoid prosecution.

Specifically, mobster Joe Agosto funneled mob money to Reid via mafia lawyer Oscar Goodman.

The Carter adminstration --- after being heavily lobbied by Nevada Democrats --- declined to prosecute, but everyone involved knows Reid was on the take.

Reid is the dirtiest of scum, protecting murderers, drug dealers, and pimps, and he knows it.

This is the source of his bitterness.

Harry Reid is a liar and likely a crook! He knows that a Romney victory would draw enough GOP senate candidates along to dump him from his Majority Leader throne and he loves the power he has and the opportunity to help his friends and btw himself.

Harry Reid has sullied the senate. He is basically a wicked crook who has used his position to enrich himself. He along with Obama and Pelosi have done more harm to this country then anyone else in the last 50 years. He will go down in history as a terrible person. I hope the republicans take the senate and turn off his hatful microphone.

Evil hates good. The cheap hate the generous. liberals hate conservatives. Harry Reid compares himself to Mitt Romney and in every respect sees himself coming up short. Harry is simply not much of a man, and what there is of him, is small minded, mean spirited, and despicable. a caricature of a human being. I think that answers the question.

Possibly Mr Reid is jealous of Mr Romney.
While Mr Reid was involved in shady land deals
prior to coming to Congress, Mr Romney was
doing charitable work for his church. Mr Romney is moral and ethical, unlike Mr Reid.

Is "hatred" highly thought of in Mormonism? Probably not. Dingy Harry's real problem with Romney is his success, Reid has cheated every way possible and still is not successful like Romney.

I wish they would quit referring to Harry as an ex-boxer. Is that supposed to give him gravitas or something? I have looked for any kind of boxing record for this mean little man and have found nothing. He doesn't list anything that I can find anywhere.

Harry claims he was an "amateur" boxer. That is pretty vague. What does THAT mean? For all we know he worked in a warehouse and packed things in boxes. Does anyone have more info?

I suspect Harry is an imposter. He was the loser that made up his accomplishments out of thin air.

I'd like to see him and Mitt in the ring together.

FTA: "He [Reid] told them Romney had “sullied” their faith, and insisted, “he is not the face of Mormonism.”

No matter how old I get, I continue to be amazed by so-called Christians who rage and sputter about someone else's percieved failings, when they themselves are so palpably motivated by hate. It must be exhausting to be Harry Reid, so bitter and resentful all the time. The green-eyed monster truly has him by the short hairs. Let's try something. Let's pray for him to reconcile with Mitt.

Harry's High School History teacher taught some kids to box in the gym after school. That's it - no matches, no Golden Gloves, nothing but a bunch of kids sparring in the gym after school.

The teacher became somewhat of a mentor for Harry after he graduated and perpetuated the myth.

This slimy little POS has been protected and financed by the corrupt "gaming" industry in Nevada for decades. He's as much of a Mormon as he is a "boxer."

Harry Reid should spend more time listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and less playing old Kingston Trio.

Reid's view of politics as expressed in "They Are Rioting in Africa" -

The whole world is festering with unhappy souls.
The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles.
Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch.
And I don't like anybody very much!

Quid pro quo Harry - nobody likes you very much either!

I believe Mormons will withstand any scrutiny of their concern for the poverty-stricken. (I'm Mormon, and am putting in a 4-hour shift at the cannery this very afternoon.)

Here's some Mormon doctrine regarding welfare:

... I would that ye should impart of your substance to the poor, every man according to that which he hath, such as feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and administering to their relief, both spiritually and temporally, according to their wants.
(Book of Mormon, Mosiah 4:26. It's important to note that the advice is addressed to "every man," not to a collectivist group.)

Here's some more:
Thou shalt not be idle; for he that is idle shall not eat the bread nor wear the garments of the laborer.
(Doctrine and Covenants 42:42 I don't think Harry Reid has gotten that far yet.)

Last time I looked the LDS Church still believed in the 10 Commandments. Somebody should remind that sanctimoneous craven little creep Reid to take another look at the one that says "Thou shall not bear false witness". Which is exactly what he has been doing for the past several months when he unloads totally unsubstantiated comments about Romney supposedly not paying his taxes for ten years. By the way, I hear that Harry is a convicted pedophile. Prove that you're not Dingey Harry!

Can we, before our L-Tryptophan coma commences, vow to abandon all attempts to festoon Obamacare with ridiculous historical metaphors? The damn law is big, with a regulatory heft now in excess of 20,000 pages. But even this governmental behemoth groans under the weight of metaphorical ornaments both daft and dull. Obamacare is not Katrina, not in fact or political impact. Obamacare is not Iraq, not in its human or material cost or in the reckless misuse of a commander in chief´s most sacred obligations of truth, judgment, and management.

In trying to assess the the killing of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, two seemingly conflicted truths emerge for me. The first is that based on the case presented by the state, and based on Florida law, George Zimmerman should not have been convicted of second degree murder or manslaughter. The second is that the killing of Trayvon Martin is a profound injustice. In examining the first conclusion, I think it´s important to take a very hard look at the qualifications allowed for aggressors by Florida´s self-defense statute: Use of force by aggressor.

Where Obama Went Wrong
In The Gun Control Fight

In one of the toughest defeats of President Obama´s political career, the Senate this week sank a piece of gun control legislation that the White House had been laboring over for months. As the post-mortems of the loss begin, some have questioned if gun control got bogged down with the president´s ongoing struggle to effectively operate the levers of power in Washington. Culprits for the bill´s demise are plenty — from gutless Senate moderates, to inflexible pro-gun conservatives, to a brazen gun lobby that waged an aggressive, and sometimes misleading, campaign to defeat the legislation.

Pat Toomey obviously isn´t flummoxed by basic arithmetic. The Republican Pennsylvania senator is proving that as he and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., attempt to modestly modify requirements for criminal background checks on gun purchases. The two senators, both gun-rights advocates, are pushing legislation that would require such checks for all gun show and Internet sales. Toomey is being labeled a Judas in conservative circles for backing what is being described incorrectly as a gun control bill. It is not.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
