I wish this were an April Fool’s joke, but it is not.
Harry Reid, a Latter-day Saint, has no regrets about lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes because his fellow Democrat won the presidency in 2012.
Here is what Harry Reid said:
CNN’s Dana Bash asked the then-Senate majority leader about his 2012 remark that Romney hadn’t paid his taxes in 12 years.
“So no regrets about Mitt Romney, about the Koch brothers, because people have even called it McCarthyite,” Bash asked.
“Well, they can call it whatever they want,” Reid said. “Romney didn’t win, did he?”
So, according to Harry Reid’s moral compass, you can lie about anything, including who should be the president of the United States, as long as you win.
How can LDS parents possibly point to this sad, pathetic man as an example for anything positive when he justifies lying as long as you get what you want?
The embarrassment that is Harry Reid just became a shameful example of all that is wrong with America today. When Mormons look back on Harry Reid’s tenure, they will see a man who refused to repent about bearing false witness, a man who reveled in his dishonesty because he achieved worldly gains.
As Megyn Kelly said last night, it is just disgusting.
