Longtime listeners of Rush Limbaugh often remark that the pundit has an extraordinary capacity to turn practically every Democratic attack back around on the Democratic party themselves. And that’s exactly what Limbaugh did today when it comes to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s attacks on Romney, which Limbaugh savaged for showing not that Romney had done something wrong, but that instead, Reid may have committed (wait for it) a felony! Yes, that’s right, in their desperate efforts to prove that Romney has committed a crime of some kind, the Democrats may have committed one themselves, according to Limbaugh.
You can read Limbaugh’s reasoning here, courtesy of RushLimbaugh.com:
Rush: I’ll tell you what ought to be happening here. IRS agents should be interrogating Harry Reid to determine who it is that supposedly leaked confidential tax information about a private citizen to him. And Harry Reid, having disclosed publicly what he was told, should be investigated as well for passing such information on to the public. This is a felony, what Harry Reid is doing. So if anybody needs to be investigated here, it’s Harry Reid. IRS agents ought to be talking to him and trying to figure out who leaked. You know, who is this guy from Bain that’s calling Harry Reid? Who are these people? And then he publicly disclosed what he was told, and he doesn’t know if it’s true. He’s demanding that Romney prove it, so Harry Reid’s admitting he doesn’t know if it’s true.
And also, from the Daily Rushbo, there’s audio of Limbaugh’s full segment slamming Reid for his potential admission of illegal behavior:
