Reid v. Romney (Limerick)

Monday, August 6th, 2012

I’m pleased that Harry Reid’s doubled down on his claim that Mitt Romney may not have paid taxes for ten years. And I agree with Nancy Pelosi: If Reid says he has a good source on this, Reid has a good source on this. Unlike Mitt Romney, Reid isn’t a liar.

Instead of making assertions about what’s in his tax returns, Romney needs to follow custom and release his returns. If Romney’s lying about his tax returns now, it wouldn’t be the first time: He was caught lying about his tax returns back in 2002 regarding the critical issue of residency.

I’m glad that Reid’s on the attack
And is giving Mitt Romney some flak.
I just wish Harry Reid
In the Senate would lead
With a similar street-fighting knack.

UPDATE: Here’s a second limerick related to this topic:

Harry Reid is not up for election,
So his jab in Mitt Romney’s direction
Is fail-safe of course:
If Reid’s wrong, then his source
Just misled him. Reid’s plan is perfection.

Limerick Ode To Mitt “How Dare You Call Me CEO!” Romney

Friday, July 13th, 2012

Anyone who’s ever been a corporate lawyer (and I confess that that includes me) knows that corporations take SEC filings very seriously. So if someone (ie., Mitt Romney) is designated as Bain’s “CEO,” “President,” “Chairman of the Board,” and “sole stockholder,” he can’t disclaim responsibility. In other words, either Romney’s lying now, or several Bain documents are deceptive, if not fraudulent.

Romney’s goal to be president’s fraught.
In Bain’s titular web he’s been caught:
Says Mitt, “chief exec”
Has no meaning. Then heck,
Being POTUS must also mean naught.
