Give the most useless website in the known universe this: they’re consistent. Once again, they have awarded a “pants on fire” award, in this case to Harry Reid, despite providing no evidence whatsoever that Reid lied. Here’s the problem:
Many readers asked us to put Reid’s claim to the Truth-O-Meter. We conclude that Reid, despite repeating the claim on at least two occasions, has not produced any solid evidence it is true.This is not, in fact, constitute a “lie.” If it is, than Romney has told “pants on fire” lies about what he’s paid in taxes as well. And PolitiFact is double-pants-on-fire-with-an-additional-Pinocchio lying, since they haven’t provided the slightest evidence that Reid wasn’t told by someone that Romney hasn’t paid taxes. As always, PolitiFact simply doesn’t understand what facts and lies are, which is kind of a problem when you purport to be a fact-checker.
Doesn't matter. POLITIFACT CONFIRMS SEN. REID IS "DIRTY LIAR" is all that matters in our Village media. Mission Accomplished for the Fact Checkers, because after all there's no way that anyone can prove Harry Reid isn't lying. No documents exist that we could check to see if Harry Reid's statement about Mitt Romney's tax returns is true or not, so clearly this is a "both sides do it" moment and Harry Reid should probably resign.
Or he should accuse the Obama administration of being infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood See, it's possible that's true, so we can't give that a Pants on Fire. It's not like there's a clear set of documents that could swing this argument decisively.
But we'll never know the truth, so it's probably best that the Democrat lose all credibility and be driven from office. What can you do?
